If you are looking for family fun or unique adventurous vacation then check out the Suwannee River in North Florida. A boater's paradise and well kept secret among seasoned travelers and avid boaters. Anglers love to get to the fishin' hole quickly in the NO no wake zone hundred mile long navigable river. Speed boaters zoom by in the no speed limit smooth glassy waters where you will scarcely hit the wake of another boater. Away from the coastal beach crowds the river is a welcome refreshment in the summer heat. Fed by dozens of springs the Suwannee is highly protected and undeveloped. Skiers love the glassy, uncrowded conditions. Adventurers and kids love to go to Bobs River Place where our friend Bob has turned his riverfront property into a natural water park.
The State of Florida owns most of the riverfront and that makes it both special and secluded from crowds. You will find few homes and very few rentals on this river because of its protected status. See the 'Real Florida' Come see what inspired Stephen Foster to write the state song 'Way Down upon the Suwannee River'. See our website for more info.

The place was perfect! Plenty of room. Amazing dock close to all the best spots on the river
This House is Perfect. Close to all the fun and everything you need for a great time.
We had a great weekend. The Dock was the best dock on the whole river. Plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. lots of wildlife around. The sturgeons jumping in river was awesome. I would love to come again when it's warmer.
Away from it all
We had a great weekend away from it at here at the Roy's place. There was little to no service data/cell and that was perfect. It is a little difficult to find even with the directions. The sign at the end of the drive is on a tree, that is important to note. Over all the experience was great, just as it was pictured. Know that the grill is a campsite style charcoal grill so that you are prepared. Be sure to bring grill cleaning utensils, tin foil, baggies, things like that just so you are prepared. It really was beautiful, there was a lot of room inside and out.
Thanks for letting us stay!
I actually have a a new BIG SIGN to better show the house number. And I will make a bigger note of the grill supplied needed.
Spacious, well-equipped river house exceeded our expectaions!
The Ray property comfortably slept 6 and had everything we needed. The 2 story dock exceeded our expectations. We hope to come stay again and bring toys.
Beautiful view but cleanliness is an issue
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the river house. But if you're the type of person that expects a certain level of basic cleanliness. This is not for you. We had to wash everything in the kitchen and bathroom before we could use it. I hope this was just a case of a lazy cleaning service. The owner when contacted, seemed to be concerned and was going to follow up with them. So lets hope that gets corrected for everyone's benefit. The river, boat dock and the screened in patio was the real star here. The patio furniture was not very comfortable, but we made it work. And we all loved hanging out there watching the river.
I will bring your comments to the attention to the cleaning crew. Thank you for your feedback.
Property was beautiful
House hard to unlock furniture outdated. But house and property very nice. No phone service at all. If u have at&t u probably would. Dock was outstanding.
