Beautiful 2bed/3bath home on the historic Suwannee river, located on 2 secluded acres of natural river front. Enjoy total privacy with no homes in sight. Just a quick three minute ride to the boat ramp, and your boat can be kept in front of the home at the dock. Relax on the 1000sqft partially covered wooden deck built over the river. Build a fire in the fire pit or grill by the river bank. Sit and watch the moon glisten on the river. Enjoy the deer turkey or wild bird life, a great place for nature lovers. The house is just as beautiful and relaxing on the inside. Newly remodeled with fully stocked granite kitchen, 2 full baths with tubs, natural hard wood floor in main room and carpeted bedrooms. A third bathroom with shower conveniently located on the ground level. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private deck off the master bedroom or the main screed porch. We are located 50 miles west of Gainesville and 3 Miles down river from Fanning Springs.

Why Dan and Cheryl LaCross chose Manattee Road
No homes in sight. Across the river is part of the Lower Suwannee Wildlife Refuge. From this home you have the river views up and down to yourself.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this little hideaway. It was peaceful and secluded, and sitting on the covered deck overlooking the river was very relaxing. The home is comfortable and nicely decorated. There were a few minor issues with the cleanliness, some light bulbs out here and there and some dust bunnies and cobwebs around, but nothing that interrupted our stay. We discussed those issues with the owner, who was very gracious and helpful, and he was thankful for honest input to help maintain his home. The owner was truly a great person to work with, and was always available to contact.
Silent is golden
This was a real retreat for us both..I played at fishing and dodging super fast boats in my kayak. The quiet nights listening to the hooting of owls, chirping of crickets, and the “big” splash of the huge sturgeon fish. My wife got caught up reading a favorite book and watching for wildlife. Her “big” moment was a doe and her young fawn crossing the road in no hurry. A very tranquil spot of unspoiled Florida will draw you back time and time again. Great surroundings, a wonderful home, super bedding, sleeping late and getting your batteries recharged. What else could you possibly want?
The house was perfect and secluded. We loved it and hope to return. Thank you!
This place is great! The kids had a blast! The house and property are beautiful! You will not be disappointed!!
Was a great time
The house was clean and perfect size for 4 adults. Separate bathrooms was definitely a plus! Great location with a beautiful view. Having BBQs and building fires in the pit was great time with great friends. Some things that could be improved is having a TV in each of the bedrooms especially when we had some down time. Also since I was flying into the area I couldn't travel with kitchen ware so it was quite difficult to cook since there was very little or no pots and pans. Unfortunately the biggest downfall was the house water. It was not drinkable and each time you ran any water it was a terrible smell. We were recommended to bring bottled water which we were very thankful we did. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed our stay. Thank you
Nice private house by a beautiful river.
