About this property

Unique Waterfront Tiny Cottage

This cute little cottage is the perfect getaway for those who love the Florida outdoors. It is called the Dragonfly Cottage and is located just off the Suwanee River in Fanning Springs Florida. Fronting Bell Spring, one of the counties 63 beautiful springs; it is the ideal spot for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. Called Florida's nature Coast; there is also an impressive network of bicycle trails close by, as well as quaint Gulf coast communities like Steinhatchee, Suwanee and Cedar Key. Enjoy 1.5 acres of spring front property with majestic live oak trees, a canoe & kayak launch, dock, and fire pit.The cottage itself is a tiny 256 sq. ft. under air but includes big amenities like a separate bedroom with a queen size bed and cozy fireplace, and a full bath with corner shower. A cute little dining table for two and everything you need to cook with is included. There is a full size refrigerator, microwave, two burner hotplate, electric skillet and griddle, large crock pot, blender and a toaster/oven large enough to bake a cake. Outside, there is a great outdoor shower stall for rinsing off after a long day of outdoor activities, and watching the sun go down while sitting in the Adirondack chairs on the covered porch is the best place to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day.

Tiny Dragonfly Anniversary

This cottage is indeed Tiny; however it packs a multitude of huge benefits!! My husband & I just celebrated our 24th Anniversary there!! The coziness of the cottage ~ the privacy of the property ~ “our own” spring to view & play in ~ launching the kayaks right from the property {Which are thoughtfully supplied} It was great not having to load up our kayaks, bikes, towels/bedding, cooking necessities etc,,, for a change!!! Ms Deborah does actually respond to any questions in a timely manner ~ also a very nice change!! Our three nights there was such a wonderful gift for my husband & I on our special day!! Thank You Ms Deborah for sharing your beautiful place Scott & Lisa

5/5 Excellent

We are so pleased with our stay. This place is paradise and a piece of old Florida. We felt like we were in the midst of Heaven. We kayaked the first day on Suwannee River. We were amazed at the sturgeon jumping. It was exciting to see all of the turtles and nature. We canoes the second day to Fanning Springs state park. We swam in the spring located on the property. It was cold and refreshing. Everything was available that we needed. There was no oven but a toaster oven. We didn’t care we weren’t there to cook. We will be back. Clean, friendly, and a very private location.

Stayed 2 nights in May 2019

Loved this place.

Loved this place. Very cute cabin. Would love to come back when the river is not flooded into it. I will be back!

4/5 Good

Charming cabin like feel.

It was peaceful. I gave it a 4 because there was not a place to store our clothing during our stay--that being said, if I knew how to do it, I would have given it a 4.75. Extremely clean, and wonderful stay. Well worth it.

5/5 Excellent

We enjoyed our stay.

We plan to be back next winter.
