Great set up for a good time
This house has it all; great location (close to restaurants, bars and shopping), roomy house with all the amenities, three car garage and large driveway and owner provided kayaks & paddle boards with all the safety equipment. When we were not on the river enjoying the beauty, we were sitting on the dock watching the wildlife and paddlers. Loved it!
Great place on the Rainbow River
Our second time spending the long Thanksgiving weekend at "The River House" as my granddaughter calls it. Excellent location, kayaks, tubes, everything you need in kitchen, super clean, nice neighborhood. We loved fishing and jumping off dock - yes we went in the river in Nov. Excellent spot to stand up paddleboard too. Large house, nice views of river, amazing screened back porch. Nice new grill. Everything is in very good condition, very responsive to questions. Close to some antique shops in Dunellon, Rainbow River State Park, some hiking.... We rented a pontoon boat this year and did Rainbow and Withlacochee Rivers. Super relaxing spot at this time of year. Super definitely gets busy on river. The house set up works great for 3 couples or extended family, we had our two daughters and their partners. Bedrooms are spread out and each has own bathroom. Plenty of room to spread out inside and out.
They also have another rental we've stayed in that's above the KO Hole where most of the tubers go in so it has less river traffic during the busy season. That ones more rustic but more than comfortable.
Awesome Family Weekend
My husband and I rented the River House for a family weekend get away, the home was awesome, very clean and a spacious floor plan. Teri was very accommodating. We enjoyed hanging out on the dock and our 4 year old grandson caught his first fish. The home is centrally located and we even rented a pontoon boat for the day from The Blue Gator and drove it back to the house and docked it. We enjoyed this trip with our family and the accommodations were excellent, we would definitely stay here in the future.
Best Vacation on the River!!
We had a wonderful time, home is beautiful, spacious and very clean! Beautiful view of the River right in the backyard. Home has kayaks and tubes for floating on the river, no need to rent from another location. Great location, right next to Swappy's, they'll take you up river and you can float right back home. I recommend this home 110%!
This home and property exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect place for a nice relaxing vacation and we totally loved the beautiful Rainbow River! We watched birds, turtles and otters right from the backyard. The home was very roomy and clean. We loved the back screened in porch. We used the provided kayaks and loved the outing. One of the most fun relaxing family trips I have ever taken. Thanks for everything!
This house was absolutely spotless! My husband is very picky about staying in clean places and this was wonderful! My favorite part is the location. I spent every bit of spare time I had sitting on the dock enjoying the wildlife! I am a bird lover and was not disappointed! Not only did I see a host of birds but otters, as well!
The house comes with 4 kayaks and enough inner tubes to keep a large family very happy! We found that kayaking after dinner was the best because no one was on the river at that time so we had the entire river to ourselves! This is a lovely setting and within walking distance of Swampy's and a yummy cup cake place, as well!
