Get away from it all!
Our family very much enjoyed our Thanksgiving weekend here! Beautiful property, nice house, great fire pit, dock, boat ramp and many outdoor activities. Would definitely recommend any one of their 3 homes here. Would be perfect for a large family gathering to rent all 3. The owners are incredibly responsive, proactive and very organized.
We appreciate the positive review very much. We try to provide homes for guests that would meet our own standards as if we were the travelers.
2nd time here and loved it!
We come up at least once a year and love it! You're no more than 20 mins from most springs.
We love it when our guests return to enjoy more of the Suwannee River experience from one of our homes.
The property was as beautiful as the house ! Great place for kids and family reunions!
We had a chance for a friends and family get away and we were able to rent 2 of the 3 houses on the property. It was an easy pathway to the next house that the kids loved to walk back and forth on! The home was clean and came with everything we could need ! There were lots of games like shuffle board, horse shoes and even a swing! The docks were new and perfect for fishing too. We will definitely come back and probably rent all 3 homes !!
It is so important to us to present our three luxury vacation homes as comfortable places for a joyful vacation and exciting memories. We are thankful for happy guests!
House was clean, view was great, water was refreshing, stairs suck but understand why house is on stilts, boat ramp close and one on property, dock was easy access big plus for boating the river.
Country side house
It was really secluded area
I enjoyed it
The house was well maintained and fully equipped with every thing you need as if you were at home.
Owners are prompt in their reactions
Beautiful and peaceful retreat
We had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend at the Riverbend house. The house was very confortable and equipped with all of our needs while away from home. The view of the river and trees is spectacular. We enjoyed watching many different types of birds up close. We wanted to take a brake from city life and we found the perfect location. The hosts were very accommodating and provided all information needed prior to arrival. They promptly answered any question we had. The house was very clean and all the furniture was neat and comfortable. The kitchen appliances and utensils are of great quality. We filled our memories treasure box with an amazing family trip. Thank you very much!
