We had a blast! The access to the river was perfect. At the end of a short trail, is a small spring where you can watch the water flowing. Downstream, a very close distance away, were several state parks with more springs! It was amazing. The campsite was very nice. Even the drive down the driveway was quaint. The outside...

This was such a great little getaway trip. A two minute walk from cabin to river, with two springs on the path. Kayak rentals just down the road and Rum Island spring also within walking distance, or driving whichever you prefer. Super clean and comfortable cabin, with extremely nice hosts!

About the neighbourhood
Rum Island Cabin is a cozy cabin nestled in a small clearing in the north florida woods on our 10 acre property. A short walk leads to a small, pristine spring at the Santa fe River. Rum Island Spring Park is a 1/4 mile walk through the woods. Swimming, picnicking, snorkeling and floating are the major activities. There are many beautiful and diverse state parks within 5-15 miles that offer swimming, cave-diving, hiking, birding, and relaxing in nature. Enjoying nature in our peaceful, rustic surroundings is our main draw. The charming town of High Springs is 6 mi. away with unique shops and restaurants. Gainesville, and the University of Florida, is 25 miles away and offers museums, events, music and booming nightlife.
There are several canoe/kayak outfitters close by...one righ...
