We have partnered with our cousin Megan, to bring you our newest addition... taking you way south of Door County's famed "Tension Line" to the land of palm trees, fresh seafood at your fingertips & relaxing ocean breezes... to Florida's Nature Coast. An area suited to the active nature lover. Biking, kayaking, fishing, birding, hiking & relaxing are all things that can be done without ever driving away from the river house. Our vacation rental sits along 377ft of your very own secluded piece of the lazy Sopchoppy River. Drop in a line and pull in some dinner or spend a little time relaxing on our floating raft. Your getaway week takes place on 2 private wooded acres in the heart of the Apalachicola National Forest. Coming in by plane... we are about an hour drive from the Tallahasse International Airport.

Enjoy the privacy of the River House
There is a sleepy little town in Northern Florida's Panhandle along the Gulf of Mexico called Sopchoppy. The town has the great fortune of being able to say that it surrounds itself with one of our country's most beautiful National Forests, the Apalachicola National Forest. Sopchoppy gives you this quaint old-fashioned feel of simpler days. There is the grocery store aptly named, "Sopchoppy Grocery". Then you have "Sopchoppy Pizza", a great pizza joint you might find in cities like Chicago with a casual & laid-back attitude, creating awesome food & serving up great local Florida brews fresh from the tap. By now you are probably beginning to see a pattern emerging in this town, rumored to mean "Dark Waters" for the tannin colored river that runs through it. Therefore we've decided to name our newest addition... "Sopchoppy River House". We invite you to read on & discover the reasons why you should plan your next getaway at our river house.
A River House with lots of charm
From the moment you arrive at this newly remodeled home you begin to feel all the stresses of everyday life melt away. First thing to do after unpacking the car might be to relax a little on one of the decks or the screen porch looking over the river while taking in all the beauty of the surrounding forest. The interior of the river house is an open concept with cathedral ceilings, loft bedroom & fully equipped kitchen. The home will easily accommodate up to four people.
