About Kathryn McClain
This property on the Loxahatchee River has been our family home since we built it in 1990. We have enjoyed this acre and would like to share it with others.
Kathryn McClain purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Kathryn McClain chose Tequesta
We always wanted to live on the water and the Loxahatchee River, being one of Florida's Wild and Scenic rivers, was our first choice. We raised our family on this property and are very proud of it. Boating, kayaking, paddle boarding on this river are wonderful and the river is very friendly. Sunsets are glorious and the ocean breezes, delightful. We always feel like we are in a tropical paradise but also in town, the best of both worlds.
What makes this Cottage unique
The unique benefits to this property are the privacy and lushness of the setting. You will not be sharing a condo pool with countless others. You can bring a boat, as long as it fits under the Tequesta Drive bridge, and tie it up to the dock for your stay. There are countless golf courses within 20 miles of the house and 7 can be accessed by the public. Palm Beach County, Florida offers a host of activities to entertain you or you can sit on the porch with a book and watch the palm fronds blow.

Great and relaxing location on the water with terrific and knowledgeable owners.
Lovely place, lovely time.
We found the cottage very comfortable and enjoyed the pool as well as the dock. Caught fish off the dock and off shore while the ladies enjoyed the day by the pool.
My husband and I stayed here with another couple. The cottage was beyond our expectation: very clean, spacious with comfortable living spaces for all four of us. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. We enjoyed the quiet and privacy of the location along with the pool, the pier where we watched the sunsets, the two porches which had very comfortable seating. Each of us could find a private space if we wanted. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and eat in. The cottage is close to the beautiful Jupiter beaches. We had everything we needed. The owner was very responsive and gracious. One of the nicest places we have stayed.
It is an awesome location on the river/bay!
The cottage was a perfect size for our 7 and 8 year old kids combined with a secluded pool, boat dock and little beach. The property is centrally located providing us short rides to the beach, restaurants and parks. We would definitely do it again!
Very special. will be back.
We had been going to this area for the past seven winters, looking for a place like this, and we finally found it. Perfectly located, secluded, a "diamond in the rough". The accommodations were ideal for us, all of the conveniences of home. Easy access to shopping, yet private and beautiful setting to relax. "State of the art" kitchen with all the necessities for dining inside and outside. We plan to make this an annual visit. Highly recommend.
Thank you so very much for such a nice review! We are so happy that you enjoyed yourself and had everything you needed during your stay. Please come back any time.
