Great Father/son getaway
This was a great weekend getaway for my 8 year old son and I. He had never kayaked before and he absolutely loved it. We spent 5.5 hours kayaking throughout the day and it’s great because we were able to come back and take breaks and eat in the cottage throughout the day. The cottage was great and had everything necessary in regards to cooking. Overall a wonderful experience and would do it again!
Great for a getaway
Really nice and cozy little spot. Great for spring hopping and dinners on the Suwannee.
Great little home base for relaxation and adventure.
My wife and I had a weekend away from the kids and wanted a quiet place to unwind. The dragonfly cottage was just that. Perfect little space with all the essentials and beautiful surroundings. The river out back is a prong of the suwannee which was awesome for paddleboarding and quiet. There are no boats like the main river so it is slick calm and tranquil. Fish jumping non stop and birds everywhere. We were not able to see the springs due to the water level but it didn't detract from the experience. Will be back for sure.
Just the perfect Getaway
It was perfect!
About Deborah Kirkland
This unique little cottage got its start as a 10’x12’ storage shed used to store tents, tools, and other items needed to cleanup, and maintain the dock and property. Built mainly out of necessity with the outdoor shower stall being it’s first addition; over time the shed evolved into the cottage you see today. A small window unit provided AC in the summer and a space heater took care of the heat in the winter. Over the next few years, the cottage became a labor of love for my late husband and me, with the addition of the indoor bathroom and then a small bedroom. The covered front porch is the final addition providing a wonderful space to relax and enjoy a glass of wine after a long day of outdoor adventure.
What makes this Cottage unique
Private, Secluded, cozy spring front retreat but keep in mind nature is unpredictable. It does rain in Florida, sometimes nearly everyday, but usually only for a short period of time. All Florida springs are effected daily by the waterways they are connected to. The Suwanee River and its tributaries experience minimal water level changes with the daily Gulf tide and rain levels. Occasionally, if the rain levels are significant upriver, even as far as the Okefenokee swamp in Georgia; the river levels will rise pushing the river water (brown water) and sometimes aquatic vegetation into the tributaries temporarily covering our springs. This does not effect kayaking or canoeing but you may choose to swim a few miles south at Manatee Springs where the ground elevation is a little higher and the springs are rarely impacted by higher water levels. To monitor the water levels in our area go to real-time river levels on the internet. Scroll down to the Suwannee river and click the Wilcox station. This will give you the river levels for the last 30 days. A good reference number for clear swimming in our spring would be about 4 feet or under. If this is important to you please monitor the levels because I will not be able to provide a refund due to elements beyond my control.
