    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.

    Great Time!

    Perfect home for two families to get together and have a great weekend. Perfect location and beautiful view of the river!! First day we took our boat down river to Fanning and Hart Springs and the second day was me ventured over to Bobs River place. We have young children (5 and under), so definitely a family friendly place! Oh and loved hanging out on the screened in porch!

    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.
