The beautiful Santa Fe River and its many pristine springs are at your doorstep from this tiny, well equipped cabin in the woods.
Relax in a private, peaceful, low-tech environment surrounded by Mother Nature.
Rum Island Cabin is a cozy cabin nestled in a small clearing in the north Florida woods. 100 feet from the gate is a small, pristine spring leading to the Santa Fe River. Rum Island Park and a large spring is a 1/4 mile walk through the woods. Many state parks are within 3-15 miles that offer swimming, cave diving, snorkeling, hiking, picnicking, birding, and simply relaxing in nature. The town of High Springs is 6 miles away and features quaint shops and restaurants. The City of Gainesville (and home of the Gators) is 25 miles away and offers all the amenities of a college town....museums, events, shopping, and nightlife. Nature and peace are our featured offerings and we love to share this with others.
Please inquire about pet policy and extra guests.

We are a retired couple living on 10 acres and appreciating the beauty and peace of nature; enjoying the springs and river and wildlife of north central florida. We owned and operated a birth center for many years, and were lucky to love our jobs. We have 4 grown children and a growing number (now 8) of grands. When we travel, we love to car camp and see varied natural settings.
