“Old Florida Charm wrapped up in one perfect location”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Being a Florida native from South Florida, it takes a lot to get my attention here at home. Having been a Springs Area vacationer for the last 5 years we have stayed many places near this location.
Hands down this is one of the best for a large family or group of 6 or more. Very homey and welcoming with all the things you need. Just bring your smiles and your groceries and you are ready. The Carl's are simply fantastic to deal with.
We truly will look no further from now on. We have found our vacation spot.

“Wonderful Weekend”

We enjoyed our stay on the river tremendously. The home was just as described and very comfortable. We had a blast in the canoe and kayaks available at no extra charge. The river and spring both being so close made things convenient and easy as we didn't have to load up in the car to look for a place to swim.

“The best kept upscale secret "Hideaway" on the Suwannee River.”

Can't say enough good things about this rental, beautiful, clean, spacious, great location, a boat dock, volleyball court, a pole barn with mounted fans, gas grill, TV, picnic tables, and sink all down stairs. Front deck with gas grill up stairs overlooking the volleyball court and river. Another covered deck right on the edge of the river with electricity and a yard light to sit on and look at the river at night. The kitchen is so well stocked that you have an electric family sized griddle, electric family sized frying pan, coffee maker, crockpot and even a waffle iron. I was amazed by the cleanliness and spacious rooms. Beds are as comfortable as any I've slept in. Grandkids came out and stayed one night before their parents got there and with the springs so close and the river fishing no one wanted to leave. We are in the process of planning another trip to this best kept upscale secret hideaway in October when it isn't so hot. Have told many friends and family members about this great vacation rental and hopefully they will too get to enjoy this wonderful place. Thank you so very much Bob Carl for affording my family the opportunity to experience such a lovely vacation spot.

We stayed here for three nights. We loved the house. It was very clean and organized. We had great campfires with our kids. Enjoyed fishing from the deck on the river. The river was flowing very high. It was beautiful to watch the fast flow of water and fish jumping on the air from the deck. We took a walk in the woods in the afternoon.

Thanks for sharing your house Bob. Overall great experience.
