  • Amazing Cabin on an Enchanting Island


    We booked the cabin for a 5-day mini vacation - part girls' weekend and part Mother's Day celebration. The cabin is so beautifully decorated and well-appointed. It had everything we could ask for including an extensive spice collection, dishes, wine glasses and great cookware selection. Loved all the special touches. We really enjoyed the album and dvd movie collection. A television in every room - if that is important to you. Cards, games and reading materials.

    Deer came down every night, birds were plentiful and the sunrises superb. Bring long pants and bug spray for walks and evening. Nights can get cool sometimes, even in the summer.

    Arrangements for boat rental, guide services and parking was challenging, but all the planning worked out. Loved going north to Welaka for lunch on the water and seeing the lower Ocklawaha River (a peaceful windy river perfect for sightseeing and fishing) and south to Silver Glen for swimming and snorkeling (best done on a weekday). The St. Johns River and Lake George have lots of great history and beautiful homes in many areas.

    The Ferry driver was great to work with and that was a special way to end our vacation. A short Monday morning trip back to our car which was parked at a nearby RV resort.

    We will be back and recommend to many others. A unique vacation a short distance from our home.

  • Perfection


    Everything about this trip was surreal. The owners were amazing. Michelle was quick and always helpful with responses and made sure that any questions or concerns were immediately addressed. The house was perfect with enough linens and towels for our entire stay. Like clockwork everyday at about 530 the deer come out into it back yard. The fire pit makes for great evenings enjoying the sunset. Just make sure you have your bug spray. This stay is remote so it is imperative to bring everything you need or think you'll need. There are marinas that are a quick boat ride for small things like ice, snacks or drinks but for anything else you will need to hop back in the car. We will definitely be reserving this property again and can't wait to go back.
