      Very homey and comfortable.

      Photos don't really do it justice. Located some distance from town in a quiet country subdivision. Very private and quiet. Sunset view from screened porch hot tub area was gorgeous. House is very well furnished especially the kitchen. Will definitely return.

      5/5 Excellent

        Enjoyable stay!

        Quaint old Florida place on Shell Creek. Nice view. Kitchen was well stocked. Friendly helpful owner. Relaxing country atmosphere. Many extras.


          Charming cottage on Shell Creek near the dam

          Loved paddling on Shell Creek. The charming cottage is located near the dam, and the fishing is great at high tide.

          5/5 Excellent


            We loved this spacious cottage, and being right on the Peace River. Would definitely stay there again!

            5/5 Excellent

              Great family getaway! Enjoyed fishing from the dock and the beautiful sunsets!

              House had everything we needed and plenty of room for our family of 4.
