Cottage #2 in Steinhatchee Landing Resort


The 2017 bay scallop season for Dixie County and parts of Taylor County will be open from June 16 through Sept. 10. This includes all state waters from the Suwannee River through the Fenholloway River. These changes are for 2017 only and are an opportunity to explore regionally-specific bay scallop seasons.

Just as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings's book Cross Creek takes you back to 'Old Florida,' so does Cross Creek Cottage in Steinhatchee Landing Resort. Snuggled under the magnificent oaks of Florida, the cotttage offers all the amenities you will need. Take to the water for fishing or scalloping, or curl up on the porch with a good book and you have the perfect vacation spot.

With two bedrooms and a bath and a half, it will accommodate 5 comfortably.

The 3 screened porches offer the most beautiful areas for reading, relaxing and visiting, as well as watching the birds and squirrels above the creekside.

This 2 story cottage has the living, dining and kitchen areas downstairs, as well as a fireplace for those cozy cool nights. There is also a half bath downstairs.

Upstairs the master bedroom offers a queen size bed, with the screened porch directly off the bedroom.

The guest room offers a queen bed, as well as a twin. Another screened porch is directly off the guest bedroom. The shared bath is between the two bedrooms.

The cottage is equipped for you to cook your catch, or try the local restaurants and taste the seafood Steinhatchee has to offer. If you choose to grill, there is a charcoal grill at the cottage.

The cottage offers WiFi internet access, as well as free local and long distance calls.

Enjoy the amenities the resort offers: a 70' swimming pool, a 7 person spa and complimentary boat slips. There is plenty of space to park your boat trailer as well. Be sure to walk down to the river and stop by the petting zoo. There you will find two of the cutest goats, as well as rabbits, chickens and ducks.

Kayaks, canoes, bicycles and archery equipment are available for rent at a nominal price from the front office.

Come to Steinhatchee and Cross Creek, and have a vacation memories are made of!

We were thrilled to stay at Cross Creek. It felt as if we were in a tree house.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great Memorial Day weekend staying at this cottage. We wanted for nothing as it was well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the weather was great all weekend. It was a dream of a stay. Thanks so much for everything. We will be back to Steinhatchee Landing.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, clean and relaxing place to stay. Great for our family of 4 with one pre-teen and one teen. All the comforts of home and great porches to boot! Great array of cooking utensils and appliances. Felt like home away from home.

Steinhatchee is a beautiful, quiet and relaxing fishing village. But when scallop season arrives, the town is bustling with boats and scallopers! Located north of Cedar Key and south of Apalachicola, it offers some of the best fishing and scalloping in Florida.
