AREA RECREATION - Steinhatchee has been a famous fishing destination for generations, with freshwater and saltwater fishing year-round. Great fishing can be found both inshore, offshore and on the fly for big catches of redfish, grouper, sea trout, flounder, black bass, snapper, cobia and more. During the summer at Steinhatchee, scalloping takes center stage. The Steinhatchee area is known as 'Florida's Scallop Capital,' as the Gulf waters make an ideal habitat for these delicious shellfish. Scalloping season typically opens July 1 and ends September 24 each year. Other popular recreational opportunities in the area include bird watching, hiking, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, scuba diving, cave diving, nature photography, and visiting the many state parks in the area. Boat rentals and charters are available through the local marinas.

About Kim Fisher

Mark and Kim Fisher. We live in Gainesville, FL and are originally from NY. We have 3 teenage boys that love fishing and scalloping.

Kim Fisher purchased this house in 2007

Why Kim Fisher chose Florida North Central

We've been coming to Steinhatchee since 2003. Our kids have practically grown up here! The fishing and scalloping are better than anywhere else! We were fortunate to be able to build this house in 2007, and we make the short trip from Gainesville whenever we can!

What makes this house unique

Fisher's Cove is a beautiful 'home away from home' for vacationing, fishing, scalloping, or just taking a break from everyday life. It's very relaxing and a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends. We love coffee on the front porch overlooking the river. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. And of course, the fishing and scalloping!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great way to celebrate my Dad's 88th birthday! Lots of scallops, good weather and our favorite River House! Thanks Mark and Kim for letting us have a family reunion in Steinhatchee!

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, beautiful resort! What more can I say! Fisher's Cove is tastefully decorated, exceptionally clean, located on a quiet street, and has a nice view of the river! There was plenty of space to park our vehicles. The outdoor porch furniture was very comfortable to sit upon and enjoy a morning cup of coffee, while relaxing and watching the water flow down the river. My only suggestion would be to screen in the porches, as I am sure in the spring and summer there will be bugs. This is Florida! :-)

My family and I spent 4 days at the resort in the beginning of January for our daughter's wedding. Everyone made compliments on your home! The location of your home to the wedding chapel and reception hall was ideal! It was a very short walk. The resort was the perfect venue for a wedding!

The only drawback was with all the festivities, we did not have time to enjoy all the amenities the resort has to offer. We will definitely be back! Thank you for letting us enjoy your charming home!

Lovely.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. Near the pool, animal petting area and boat parking. It had plenty of linens a washer dryer and dishwasher. We were pleased with the small touches like toys and games for children and the outside hammock was perfect for the little ones. The house was clean and well maintained and the owner was very quick to answer questions.
