Why Alexandra Mueller chose Old Town

We as a family built this house a few years ago, in 2010. It is a great place to just get away and relax. This is a family-friendly house as my three girls and I grew up in this vacation home.

What makes this house unique

Firepit for smores, Wrap-Around Porch, many areas/furniture to lounge around inside and on porch and gazebo, large 25 foot dock for boat and/or to lay out, boat launch 5 blocks down in the same neighborhood.

Wonderful home, Great location !!

  • 5 of 5

We loved all the space available inside and outside this home. Plenty of "room" to spread out, but lots of "togetherness" too. Great family floor plan. Loved the area under the house for relaxing or outside "play space" if the weather gets rainy, as well as the gazebo.

The floating dock was made for getting into and out of the kayaks and canoe. There are lots of helpful amenities available, life jackets, emergency kit.

This home had everything needed for a wonderful stay. Lots of little extras that you don't always find in a rental.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Great Property. Very attentive owners. Beautiful house with access to the river. Very comfortable. The only criticisms would be that there is no access to a phone for emergency purposes. Cell reception is almost nonexistent and there is no house phone. Other than that, highly recommended!

I've stayed at several properties on the Suwannee and this one was by far the best. Communication with the owner was above and beyond and they made the process so easy. Not to mention the house was amazing. Thanks!!!

Fantastic venue for our ManTrip

What a great house. What a great host. The river, the dock, the spacious living area and kitchen. We could not have been more pleased. Some of the guys were talking about renting for a family vacation.
