Enjoy relaxing on the famous Suwannee River ...stay at the beautiful "River House"
Wash your cares away in the historic Suwannee River while enjoying North Florida as it truly is...serene, laid back, full of country ways and history, yet a short distance away, some of the best music in the world along with great restaurants, shopping, antiques, hiking trails and what everyone is looking for...the good life.
The "River House" opened in early 2007, incorporating all the modern day conveniences into the beautiful home next to the fabled Suwannee River . The home, built above flood stage within steps of the tea-colored river Stephen Foster wrote about in his famous song, provides visitors a spectacular view not only from its interior and beautiful back deck that faces the river, but from the dock built right on the river. The tri-level deck provides an opportunity for fishing, snorkeling, diving and swimming (kindly bring your own equipment). A fish cleaning sink and shower with well water are provided on the riverside deck for your convenience.
If you prefer, lie in the comfort of genuine Mexican hammocks, listen to the crickets lull you into forgetting the hustle and bustle of the city. Or, you can grill your favorite steak on an outdoor grill next to the river or enjoy an evening campfire around the fire ring. A concrete patio is the perfect place to enjoy your meal with a special picnic table built just for this site.
Be lulled into a peaceful state of mind as you sit and watch the river flow on its way to the Gulf of Mexico . Whether you're a water enthusiast, nature lover or couch potato, you'll find something here you will love.
Right across the river is The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park where the largest country music jam in the South is held each April. Festival season begins early in the year, taking a break during the summer and getting revved up again in the fall. Some of the biggest stars in the music world perform at the Music Park that's just across the river from the "River House." If it's fiddle, banjo and mandolin playing you like, you'll find the best in the world at the Music Park . Bring your stringed instrument...jam sessions are held every week, and you're invited.
At the "River House," there are three bedrooms and two full baths designed to give you maximum comfort. The inviting bedrooms are furnished in traditional furniture, including the master bedroom which has a comfortable king size bed. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, while the third bedroom has twin beds. For those romantic evenings, each bedroom is equipped with dimmer switches. Each bedroom has a beautiful ceiling fan.
