... a Florida Nature Coast Getaway at the


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 Tallahassee International Airport.   For more info click on Sopchoppy River House 

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. The town was named after the river flowing in front of our home & rumored to mean "Dark Waters" for the tannin colored river that runs through it. In the spirit of the name we've decided to name our latest 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.

Near a 40 mile stretch of the "Capital City to the Sea Trail", along with miles of other biking trails. Within an hours drive, Apalachicola, an authentic fishing town, offering quirky shops and restaurants & local breweries. With the close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, one day you could be salt water fishing, fresh water the next. This area offers fresh gulf seafood available at nearby family run fish markets. Beautiful white sand beaches within 30 minutes drive. "Florida Big Bend Scenic Byway", an approximately 200mi. driving tour that can be broken up into several days.

After a full day of adventures head back to the river house. Grill your catch or try one of the nearby local eateries. The lack of light pollution in the area creates awesome star gazing opportunities... finish off your evening around the campfire before settling in for a great nights rest.
