About the Property

Two bedrooms home on canal with access to Gulf.

The cottage is located on the canal leading to the Gulf of Mexico and great fishing. The 1940's home is remodeled, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, laundry, two bedrooms with queen sized beds (both are Beauty Rest, one is less than a year old), and a large bathroom with tiled shower. The house is comfortable and should provide all you need for your stay. Wood deck all around provides star gazing and cool breezes. The Lower Suwannee River Management area is a quick 15 minute drive and provides unspoiled beauty.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am originally from Florida and grew up on the salt water. I recently found an old 8mm movie of me rowing a dinghy when I was 3 years old, although it was tied to the shore of the Anclote River. I lived in this house in Horseshoe Beach for 18 years; I now live in my childhood home on the river.

Why the Owner Chose Horseshoe Beach, FL, USA:
The house is located on a canal with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and some of the best fishing in Florida. Having lived here for 18 years, the home is designed and equipped to be lived in - not simply a place to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Horseshoe Beach is one of the few remaining towns along the Gulf Coast that is still quaint, quiet, and laid back. The fishing, both inshore and offshore is great. Dixie County has approximately 40 miles of coastline with only 1 mile in private ownership; the rest is sawgrass and salt marshes.
