About the area

The St. Johns River was Florida's first tourist attraction. Although the steamboats that plied its waters in the 1800s have disappeared, the beauty and mystique of the river remain. Opportunities for recreation abound. St. Johns River and Lake George are known best as the Bass Capital, however, the river offers so much more. Ocala National Forest is across the river, as is the Ocklawaha River, a pristine environment that takes you back in time and also gives you your best chance to see an alligator. Take your boat out and explore, or take a guided nature tour, it is an opportunity not to be missed. Silver Glen Springs and Salt Springs are located off Lake George and are a great day trip by boat. You can also take the oldest operating ferry in Florida across the river just south of us. From there you have a seven mile drive thorugh the Ocala National Forest on a dirt road into the quaint town of Salt Springs (and the Spring itself). Heading south you'll come to Juniper Springs and Run (excellent canoeing and kayaking) and Silver Glen Springs. Being in the Ocala National Forest, you'll also have access to many trails as such as the Florida Trail which, when completed, will extend from the southern tip of Florida into the panhandle. Hiking trails in the Welaka Forest provide an up close way to see nature and allow you access to a secret spring ! Of course, for many fishing from the dock or their boat, watching the stars at night and the breathtaking sunsets will provide all the entertainment desired.

“Labor Day Weekend”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2016

Beautiful unit, has everything you need. Owners were great and let us stay additional night at the last minute.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the kind review! I was wondering about you and hopes you were enjoying yourselves. So glad to hear from you and please return soon. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thank you. Zonya Williams

“Very special rental on the river.”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2016

We were very pleased at the quality and cleanliness of the home. It had everything we thought we would need and more. Very large living space right on the river with access to our boat right out the back door. It's perfectly located near Lake George, on the St Johns River with Jacksonville, Orlando and the east coast not far away. The view from the patio was simply fantastic. The Sunsets were spectacular. Ron and Zonya were great hosts. Being a novice boat owner Ron's help and advice was wonderful. Even caught my first fish off the dock from the river. This was an eye opening experience for a vacation spot, we are definitely going to put this place as one of our places to stay when we want to hang out on the river.

Owner's reply: Dear Roger and Carol, Thank you so much for the wonderful review and taking the time to send it. We're happy you enjoyed yourselves. It's good to get away and enjoy the river and relax on occasion; especially when you work as hard as you do in the real estate business. long weekends are perfect for that. Ronnie and I enjoyed talking with you and getting to know you both. Hopefully that won't be your last visit! Thank you again. Zonya

“WARNING=You will never want to leave !”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2016

This rental had a lot to offer --the house is charming and inviting. The views are awesome - in the morning, we would make coffee - go out on the screened-in porch right off the kitchen--take in the beauty of the peaceful River and surroundings.The owners have a boat dock you can walk out on and either sit there to relax or fish right from dock; or bring your own boat and explore the River. The rental is stocked with pots / pans, utensils, plates / cups- everything you need to cook ..or just up the road there are several restaurants to choose for all 3 meals...The home is in the perfect location for relaxation and away from traffic , but close enough to visit several cities like St. Augustine, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, etc...Our vacation seemed to go by so fast because of the owners....they made you feel like "old friends" who stopped by for a visit. They would answer any questions we had, offer suggestions, tell us about the area if we asked, or didn't bother you if you wanted to be left alone. It was by far the nicest place we have stayed over the years--and we want to rent again next year. The owners are super---friendly and will try their best to make your stay a pleasant one. I miss them and the views from the rental. I almost didn't want to write this review as now more people will want to go to this haven - but I have to say if you want to stay in a beautiful, clean and cozy rental --this is #1 . You will never want to leave........

Owner's reply: Dear Jan and Bob, It was a pleasure meeting you both. You're wonderful people. A side note; I could have used your expertise in design and decor since you have excellent taste! Thank you for the kind expressions. We try our best to make our guests comfortable in our modest home. Of course we can't take credit for God's awesome creation; the beauty of the sky at sunset or the peaceful river setting. I'm gonna miss you! Wish you could have stayed longer. I hope your Mom is doing well. Zonya & Ron

“Holidays on the St. John's”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2016

We absolutely loved our one month stay on the St. John's at this beautiful property. The house immediately makes you feel like you are in your own home. All of the accommodations are exceptional - the dock, the grounds, the patio, everything! The landowners are amazing. Zonya and Ron are the most considerate hosts you can imagine. They go above and beyond to make your visit enjoyable. We definitely want to return.

Owner's reply: Dear Linda & Wayne, Thank you for the kind words about us and our home. We really work hard to make people feel welcomed. We loved meeting you both and your Mom. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you can return next winter. We're so glad Wayne was able to go fishing with Ron and that the grandchildren had a fun time fishing. Thank you also for the delicious white wine from your vineyard which we hope to visit this year! Thank you for taking such great care of the house. Zonya and Ronnie

Wonderful vacation, always so much fun to relax on the river, the fishing is phenomenal! Rooms have been pristine on each stay. Definitely my husband and my favorite vacation spot. Thank you so much for such a great experience!!!

“Remarkably Serene Accomodiations”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

We have rented get-a-way properties for years in many parts of the country. These property owners were remarkably proficient in all areas of meeting our needs. The kitchen is fully equipped which really helped in preparing our meals. The apartment's decor adds to the relaxed atmosphere on the river. They are very knowledgeable and experienced in how guests like to be treated and have integrity in their interactions with those that rent from them. The view of the sunsets are even more breathtaking than we expected and such a delightful sight at the end of each day. It was good to get to know Zonya and Ronnie and felt like we made new friends that we would like to see again in the future. They were generous to supply a couple of items we hadn't brought with us for our fish fry. We caught plenty of fish and enjoyed watching the manatees up close from the dock. This trip was such a happy memory for our 83 year old dad we brought with us because had been wanting to visit the area for years. We all learned some new fishing techniques that we will remember for years to come. I recommend this property for anyone looking for a peaceful scenic get-a-way and look forward to planning another trip. Best wishes for continued success to them both...........thanks for everything, Susie and Joe.

Owner's reply: Susie and Joe, I must say, the pleasure was all ours indeed! You guys were wonderful. Heartfelt thanks for the nice review. Nice to know that our hard work has paid off. Very kind of you to take the time to write a review. We look forward to seeing you both again as well. Your new friends, Ronnie and Zonya Williams

“Ambasador of Good Will”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

We spent several days at this location and had a wonderful time. The owners of this property are on site and went out of their way to be sure we had what we needed including the use of their boat slip and some old bay seasoning to cook the crabs we caught off the dock. They also went above and beyond offering tips and advise to ensure we caught fish although luck just wasn't with us that afternoon. All in all it was extremely enjoyable and we will be planning a "guys fishing trip" at a later date.

Owner's reply: Thank you Kathy and Jim! We enjoyed meeting you both and are go glad you fit right in to our laid back lifestyle here in Georgetown. Zonya
