Property description

The Shuck Shack is a 2br. 1.5 bath house with 1 king bed and 3 single beds and a sleeper sofa. There is also floor space for an airbed to sleep 2-4 more. The Shack is 1.3 miles down a dirt road and surrounded by woods. It's great for birding, sipping coffee on the front porch while enjoying boats parading up and down the Steinhatchee River, jumping in your boat and heading to the Gulf, socializing with special people, a quiet romantic weekend away from it all or partying or all of the foregoing. In the interests of full disclosure, The Shack is not where you will find a fitness center, swimming pool (we swim in the river), room service or a near by shopping mall. Bring your bug spray as there are no-see-ums and mosquitos. When it rains a lot the dirt road that takes you to The Shack can hold water. The yard can hold water at high tide when the heavens open but it has to be a pretty heavy downpour. This is Florida. The Shack is on a well so you should bring your own drinking water. The well produces sulphur water and yes the water has a slight smell especially when the pipes and hot water tank have not been recently purged. My family loves jumping into the river after a long day on the flats as the river is fresh and cool, perfect to wash off the salt from the Gulf. However, the river is also the neighborhood for the critters that call it home. We don't see gators very often but yes we have seen them. Some people have seen sharks in the river but I am unaware of any attacks. All this to say, swim at your own risk in the Steinhatchee River. Of course we can't control mother nature. You'll have everything you need and all of life's basic comforts. It is perfect for a water filled holiday and much more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife and I bought this nice little place because we love to fish and scallop and just be in or near the water. We love that it is nestled in the woods at the end of 150 acres, loaded with many different birds and wildlife. We live and work in Jacksonville, and it is a 2 1/2 hr drive for us to get to the shack. We like the fact of easy access to the Gulf and we love its being remote from strip centers and traffic jams. We enjoy the 'wild' aspect of our place and we love the comfort of its offerings.

Why the Owner Chose Steinhatchee, FL, USA:
If you like nature and the setting of an old Florida fishing area, than you will love it here. The house is located 2 miles from the mouth of the gulf. There is a boat ramp almost directly across the river, also 3 other ramps in the area. The Shack is clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. It is rustic, not fancy but perfect for whatever you have in mind. The dock on the Steinhatchee River is ready for your boat. Once you visit the Shack you will want to return.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love seeing a wide variety of birds and wildlife. We have seen otters, turkey, eagles, owls, hawks, bobcats, manatees and a few species of snakes (mostly non-poisonous). You can drink your coffee on the screened porch and enjoy a parade of boats of folks heading to the flats.
