Private Steinhatchee Cabin with Dock and Boat Ramp

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Living area, 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Congratulations! You have just found one of the best kept secrets of Florida vacations. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing retreat then you're in the right place.

This cabin has plenty of room for friends and family to enjoy a day of activity outside and a relaxing evening around the campfire.

An RV spot is available for $40/night. Please let us know what size your RV is so we can be sure it will fit.

Bring your canoe or kayak and launch right from the ramp in front of the house and paddle down the creek right to the Gulf.

You may also bring your own boat for a great weekend of fishing, easy launching from the private ramp at the cabin and store it in the covered slip for the duration of your stay.

Most boats 24' or smaller are fine but boats with t-tops are discouraged since there is a low bridge to go under. Our screened fish cleaning house makes cleaning the day's catch convenient. The Gulf is a short, 20-minute boat ride.

Housekeeping services are paid in cash at checkout.

Rocky Creek area in Jena is a beautiful and peaceful place yo get away and enjoy nature.

  • 5 of 5

Vanessa’s place is quaint, clean and located in beautiful, out-of-the- way, peaceful Jena. But go into town and enjoy some amazing barbecue and mullet dip from Scullyz!! Her food is so reasonably priced and delicious, you won’t want to go any place else for barbecue. Roy’s and Fiddlers have great seafood!

Beautiful Relaxing Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin which is perfectly located on the property, with the fire pit and boathouse just a few steps away. Especially loved the porch for evening cocktails & morning coffee. Lots of games and books to keep us entertained. Our kayak launched easily and we enjoyed the short paddle to the gulf, would have liked to see a bit more wildlife but was still every enjoyable. The weather turned colder just before we arrived so the evening fires were awesome next to the creek. Stars OMG stars!!! So many stars to see at night :)

I highly recommend the cabin to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Bring all of your food, supplies, etc. and you never need to leave!

I will say it was just a little disappointing to discover the additional cleaning fee was not included in my quoted price which might have made me look at another location. But all in all was an amazing getaway and I would suggest it to my family and friends alike.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I love this cabin! We needed to get out of town for a while and so my family of four stayed for a long weekend. We brought our kayaks and went for a paddle. The kitchen is easy to cook in for the whole family and we had plenty of room to relax. We even brought the dog, I just wish the yard was fenced so she wouldn't run off.

The house was clean and secluded. I'll remember this next time we need a little break from the hustle of the city.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sure the dog enjoyed it too and I hope she stayed close by.

Private cabin with prime location on the water with ammenities

  • 4 of 5

Having this cabin right next door to our property was super convenient for a larger get together! We had a blast and it was very nice to have a variety of kitchen utensils and pots/pans etc. since we were doing a lot of cooking. Overall, clean and tidy. One issue was a broken light in one of the bathrooms.

Not at all what was pictured.

  • 1 of 5

The house was unclean with roaches on floor. The beds were described as queens, but were instead double beds. We were unable to go outside due to the amount of bugs. This is not a cabin but instead a trailer. I felt the pictures and descriptions were falsified.

This place was nice clean and quite

  • 4 of 5

The owner was great she allowed us to bring our two pups who probably had more fun in the river the we did ..loved the place it would be perfect for a job boat the only suggestion I would tell others is to bring bug spray for the Mosquitoes after dark
