I am a semiretired Interior and textile designer, living on first floor, right side of this cabin in an well space planned small apt size room with my own back patio private area separate and away from yours. See our detailed floorplan and property maps.
I am widowed, quiet, artistic, musical, like jazz and classical. I'm well traveled, social, love books, I garden when i can, kayak, and otherwise enjoy the quiet country setting of this near 10 acres retreat we have here at the banks of the Beautiful Santa Fe River. Our river access gate... just walk across the little road at the foot of my property to the river bank. Launch your own boat in the river there at the OLE Boat Ramp.. OR walk just about 300 ft down river to the New boat ramp and the clear cool Rum Island Springs and Park. Swimming and snorkling, and great for kids. See my property map. Much to do in this beautiful area of North Central Florida. Many Springs on the Santa Fe you can paddle within a few minutes, longer boat trips may be arranged with kayak preveyers to deliver canoe or kayaks to the New Boat ramp at Rum Island Springs, and pick you up down river later, or perhaps arrange a special full moon tour. Contact me and I will give you more info how these may be pre arranged .
Come enjoy it all, with or without my help or input. I live here, I'm quiet and helpful only if you need that service. Otherwise you may not see me I travel frequently, but help is close. Please, do make noise.. I love to hear children playing and being kids and enjoy your music OK.. it's vacation for you! Enjoy You may request a mail out sheet of things to do while here, or in nearby Gainesvile, our University Town or other questions you may have. I can provide an email after you book about self check in and how to navigate the property with ease. Thank You , Look forward to your visit.
