A 5 Star House in a 5 star location!
The home was clean and really comfortable, and it had plenty of charm and space for our large family. We enjoyed every minute in the Presidential Cottage located in the beautiful Steinhatchee Landing. The landing has too many wonderful features to list! It’s the perfect place for bike rides, river views, and recreation for all ages. It was our first trip to Steinhatchee, and we spent hours exploring this quaint, old Florida town; nothing compares to the beauty and location of this property. We look forward to returning soon!

5/5 Excellent

First of all, we walked into the cabin and it had such a great energy. It was incredibly clean and so adorable with such beautiful detail and design. I feel like we may have found the best 3 bedroom home in Steinatachee. We loved the rustic vibe that was conveyed in the listing which is why we booked it but the pictures do not do this home justice because it is even better in person and pretty much perfect. So much open room and we were right across from the boat ramp which was a pleasant surprise- a 2 minute walk down a beautiful “Old Florida” path of friendly goats, chickens, roosters and ducks. And Barry was amazing- such a great communicator- and you can tell he has thought out everything detail in this home to make it so inviting. The screened-in wood beam/ tin roof porches were so well furnished and so relaxing. Their home was very child friendly and our young kids had an amazing time exploring- the 2 main bedrooms (same exact size which was very nice) are right off the porch and very charming. This was truly an amazing Vrbo gem and we are so happy that we found it. Thank you Barry for being an amazing host and we hope to come back soon! Oh and in additional to the unique presidential history this home holds, this home was also pictured in Southern Living magazine years ago which is pretty cool! There’s a reason why every single review is a perfect 5!

Perfect Scallop house
We upsized from our last years rental and absolutely loved it. This house is beautiful and the bedrooms were large and the beds were cozy. The location is perfect for the kids to have a little bit of freedom while still keeping an eye on them. Excited to book again next year here.
