Best Choice in Horseshoe Beach Waterfront Vacations

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Large canalfront house, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10+)

My wife and I and our family have been coming to the beautiful, secluded "Hidden Coast" of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, including Horseshoe Beach, for many years. Sometimes this area is also referred to as Florida's Big Bend or "Nature Coast" because it is so unspoiled and rich in Florida's natural wonders. Many people know Horseshoe Beach mostly for it's incredible fishing and scalloping, but these only start to suggest the activities available to visitors. We are located between the quaint, historic village of Cedar Key to the South and Steinhatchee to the North. Slightly to the South is the incredible Suwannee River and its myriad of upstream creeks, clear springs and abounding wildlife. Skiing and other water sports such as canoeing, kayaking, tubing, snorkeling and diving are readily available alternatives. On the wildlife side, you will never see a more diverse community of natural Florida wildlife than here, whether for photography, birding, or just plain sightseeing.

Simply stated, we have the perfect destination for weekend, holiday or extended stays by individuals, couples or groups who are looking for a new kind of fishing, boating or other unique adventure. If you and/or members of your group or family have an interest in Florida outdoor adventure at its best and you want a comfortable, convenient, reasonably priced and well appointed home base for your activities, we have it for you.

To make it even better and more affordable, our home is CONVERTIBLE INTO A DUPLEX by the simple closing of one central interior door. As a duplex, each unit has its own separate kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms, so you and your family and friends can get "TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!" Take a close look. We really are THE BEST CHOICE IN HORSESHOE BEACH WATERFRONT VACATIONS.

Best wishes for a wonderful Florida vacation. Allen and Janet Scott

Grabdaddy with a whole family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

Last summer we put together the best family reunion ever. This is a big house and with a few air mattresses we got close to 20 people in for the reunion. We'll get in this year too if we're lucky!
