About this property

Suwannee River, Near Bobs River Place, Fanning Springs BIG Dock

If you are looking for family fun or unique adventurous vacation then check out the Suwannee River in North Florida. A boater's paradise and well kept secret among seasoned travelers and avid boaters. Anglers love to get to the fishin' hole quickly in the NO no wake zone hundred mile long navigable river. Speed boaters zoom by in the no speed limit smooth glassy waters where you will scarcely hit the wake of another boater. Away from the coastal beach crowds the river is a welcome refreshment in the summer heat. Fed by dozens of springs the Suwannee is highly protected and undeveloped. Skiers love the glassy, uncrowded conditions. Adventurers and kids love to go to Bobs River Place where our friend Bob has turned his riverfront property into a natural water park. The State of Florida owns most of the riverfront and that makes it both special and secluded from crowds. You will find few homes and very few rentals on this river because of its protected status. See the 'Real Florida' Come see what inspired Stephen Foster to write the state song 'Way Down upon the Suwannee River'. See our website for more info.

Loved the river house

5/5 Excellent

Roy's Suwannee River Home.

The Roys were very helpful and kind throughout our whole experience. When we arrived the home was clean and gave us a lot of space for our late Thanksgiving/early Xmas celebration. The children enjoyed fishing [casting their poles out and reeling them in] off the dock. The fish just wasn't fast enough to catch the bait as it was reeled in. It was a very peaceful quiet area. Perfect getaway. Can't wait until next time.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful property. Excellent views. Great communication!

We really enjoyed our stay. The Roy's were very accommodating and responsive. The views and facilities were great. Looking forward to going back!


Peaceful and beautiful

Enjoyed the stay very much serene and beautiful during the week days . Accommodations were nice However the inconsiderate speed boat operators on the weekends made the fishing impossible. Would definitely stay again during the week days !

5/5 Excellent

So peaceful and relaxing!

A great place to stay. Very roomy and comfortable inside and very quiet and relaxing outside. The dock is great for fishing and sunning. Loved sitting by the fire in the evenings. Launched our kayaks from the property so that made it really convenient. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!
