Overview

About the property

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 5

With one bedroom plus a sleeping loft and one bathroom, this cabin offers an unparalleled view of the Rainbow River which can be enjoyed from the hammock, the hot tub, the outdoor dining area or the patio area. This family-friendly rental sits at about the midpoint of the river and is bordered by the Florida State Greenway.

The cabin is ideal for the nature lover. Spring brings the blue herons to nest in the cypress in front of the house. You can see the different creatures as the day progresses: ducks in the early morning, blue heron fishing at mid-day, the hummingbird and otters in the evening, and the owl at dusk. Nature provides an ever evolving show right from the comfort of the deck.

Activities include swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, and everyone’s favorite: tubing down the river. The spring water is 73 degrees year round so if that's not to your liking you can enjoy the screen enclosed hot tub overlooking the river.

The cabin has one bedroom and a sleeping loft and is suitable for up to four. Families of more than four are discouraged but may be considered on a case by case basis for an additional charge. Come enjoy the natural beauty of this gem the locals affectionately call the' Blue Run.'

About Dwight

I am about as close to Tom Sawyer as you will find. I grew up running around in the woods along the Rainbow River shirtless and barefoot. We would fish off of anything that would float and we had no qualms about sneaking out and bass fishing off of someone's dock when they left for the supermarket. My first home as an adult was an old cracker style house downstream on the Blue Run. (It was not much of a house). That house is still standing and will for a long time because it stayed in the family and now belongs to one of my closest friends.If you float down you can see the place on the east bank. You can recognize it on weekends because it is the only place with plastic lawn furniture set up out in the river. Give them a shout on the way by. They are fine southern folks. We all remember the river the way it was before it was discovered, but that was a long time ago and we can't undiscover it, so we welcome our visitors. I'm glad I got to see it then in its more natural state. I hope my visitors enjoy the river as much as I have. -Dwight

Beautiful escape

  • 5 of 5

Clean, relaxing escape from everything! It is so quiet out here and the lake is crystal clear and refreshing! The cabin is quaint and clean. It is generously stocked with dishes, pots, pans, a bbq grill and even rafts and kayaks. We needed to get nothing except food! Loved it! Thanks for everything!

Already planning our return!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a beautiful location on the beautiful Rainbow River. I’ve had my eye on this location for several visits to the River, but it was always booked, so this time I reserved early, and so glad I did! We planned for a weekend away without kids, but last minute had to bring them with us. The cabin was perfect! Well stocked, plenty of water toys and the grounds are in great condition. We turned our weekend into a “screen-free” family time and the Blue Run Cabin was perfect for that. We are so grateful for time there and are already planning our return. Thank you Dwight!

Perfect location and house!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd time renting this house and we love it more each time! The location is perfect and the added bonus of the paddle boards and kayaks are perfect for my 2 teenage boys!
