  • Perfect Get Away on The River!

    "We were looking for peaceful. We were needing to relax. WE wanted a place where our young teen boys could throw a line out and be able to run barefoot. WE wanted a lazy old rocker on a big porch in old Florida. We wanted the peace of a lazy river. We found PERFECT at The River House on The St. Johns River in Palatka Florida!! From the minute we opened the front door, and we could see out through the house to the big river, we began to forget all the stresses of South Florida and all deadlines and worries. The house is laid out wonderfully with the Master Bedroom and main guest bedroom and the living/ family areas all looking out at the most beautiful long green lawn down to the river! There is a very large well laid out kitchen with all the appliances and set ups that you could possibly need. There is a split bedroom plan so the parents had one side and our kids the other! The living/family area had the most wonderful big comfy recliners, sofas and easy chairs. Everything about The River House is about comfort, and relaxing!! Every morning, we woke up to beautiful views of the river while we drank our morning coffee!! Outside the entire back of the house is a huge walk around porch with old rockers and chairs. I loved sitting in the rocker and reading and watching the boys fish off of the big dock! WE were so content at the The River House, we never went out to eat! I couldn't get the boys to leave the dock!! WE ordered out from the Restaurant down the street our first night and cooked on the grill every meal after that. It was just to heavenly where we were to go anywhere else!! We did enjoy a beautiful day on the river by renting a boat and taking it down to Dunn's Creek. The weather could not have been more perfect. All in all, the entire four day visit was a home run!! We highly recommend The River House! WE hope to return many times in the future!!"

  • Loved it!!!

    "What a wonderful way to spend a week with the grand kids!!! We spent every moment we could swimming in the beautiful clear lake, paddling the kayak or fishing from the row boat. Mark and his wife have a lovely home, not only filled with all the thoughtful amenities but also personal touches making the home warm and inviting. The Foosball game and the DVD player also came in handy during Tropical Storm Colin!!! When we asked the kids if they'd like to come here again, they responded with a resounding, unanimous YES!!!"

  • Marvelous Estate/Retreat

    "Are you ready to escape to the beauty of “Old” Florida. The way Florida used to look before strip malls and concrete covered over her history and majesty. Then you have chosen the right place with this rental. It begins in the front yard which is draped in giant Live Oaks, wearing their moss like a long beautiful mane of hair, testaments of strength and time. You are greeted with gentle breezes off the lake in the morning, as you have your coffee on the large covered veranda. You will glance across the lake, and see the white blooms on the lily pads, dancing in the mid-morning sun. The sandhill cranes fly in to feed on the acorns and along the water’s edge, tall and prehistoric looking. The blue heron, white egret, and mallard ducks, all make their visits to the premise, a wonder to behold. Each evening you will be greeted with amazing sunsets, dining on the table at the dock as the water reflects the brilliant pinks and oranges of the setting sun. You will watch the fish skip across the surface of the lake and if you are lucky, you will see the frogs hopping and swimming in and around the grasses along the bank. Drink your wine or cast a line as you enjoy the end of your day. The house is roomy and comfortable and evokes images of the Southern lifestyle of yesteryear. Privacy abound and extremely peaceful, at least in the month of April. The kitchen is very large and comfortable to work in. The bed was most comfortable though I only used 1 of the 10 offered. There is a TV in every room but I was so fascinated with the outdoors, I did not even turn one on. AT&T cell service was 4 bars all week and internet worked great. Things to Note: The a/c is pre-programmed to stay at 74 degrees Fahrenheit or above which can make sleeping uncomfortable for some. I might suggest bringing some fans, they also help with keeping mosquitos away on the porch. Bring your bug spray or fan, this is Florida. The sign marking the house is parallel with the street so easy to miss."
