Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure having John and Linda as our guests at the cottage in White Springs and introduce them to our community and our friends. Over Christmas dinner, we learned so much about the land We are so pleased they were able to see the "real Florida" and all the areas in Central and North Florida. We wish them well in their journey across America and hope they return soon.

A great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this charming cottage in White Springs so I could participate in the 16th annual Suwannee River challenge canoe and kayak race. We brought our two grandsons along and all of us loved the place. It was clean, nicely decorated, with comfortable beds on a small street in tiny White Springs. It was nice to relax on the porch after the race enjoying the breeze and watching the dragonflies. Sunday morning as I loaded up the car the only noise to be heard were some distant roosters crowing. The owner, Tom, greeted us on Friday by bringing over some blueberry quick bread and some poetry books for our two grandsons. We had a great time!

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed exploring the area around the Suwannee River, biking through the quaint town, eating at Fat Belly's Bar-b-que and Grill, and relaxing in the hammock on the back porch. The house was comfortable and the host friendly and helpful. We would visit again.

Great little cottage. Perfect for our 'Girls concert weekend' in White Springs.

  • 5 of 5

So much better than being crammed in a chain hotel/motel. Just like being at home when you're away. Would go back in a minute. And the mini pound cake the owners left for us was delish.

Country Doll House

  • 5 of 5

It was a cute little cottage that had a happy and comfortable feel. The town was so cool! It was small, guiet, and off the beaten path. The people were really nice and the nearby antique shops and Stephen Foster State Park were great. Itchetucknee River was close by for some awesome tubing.

The Moore's were so accommodating for us on our wedding weekend, we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more in this cottage in such an adorable little town. Thank you so much for making it so memorable for us!
