About this property

Modern High Springs Farm Cottage

Adults-only guesthouse in High Springs
The perfect getaway for couples & honeymooners! Located on a private, 42-acre farm, this cottage is a cute old-Florida style farm building on the outside & a modern studio apartment on the inside. Newly renovated as of February 2020. This space is perfect for two people looking for amenities similar to a hotel room, but who are interested in a little more space & privacy with easy access to a variety of local outdoor activities. (The building is a total of 350 sq ft.)

INDOOR AMENITIES: Our cottage includes an hotel-style kitchenette (microwave, sink & mini-fridge). The building is one living/sleep/kitchenette space with a private bathroom. Bathroom has a standing shower with rain shower head (no tub). NOTE: Kitchenette does not have a stove.

OUTDOORS FEATURES: A shaded front deck with rocking chairs, a private wooden back deck with a great view (see in photos), a 1-mile walking trail (slight elevations), 42-acres of rolling pastures & forest, cows & a large barn. Enjoy coffee on the deck in the morning while you listen to the song birds or have a relaxing walk through the beautiful land. On a clear summer night you can even see the Milky Way along with a thousand stars.

LOCATION: We are across the street from Poe Springs, the Santa Fe River & boat ramp, & just 5 minutes from the quaint High Springs downtown area with restaurants, a dive shop & antique shopping. (Our distance to recreation areas are: Poe Springs - 0.2 mi, Gilcrest Blue Springs - 1.5 mi, Ginnie Springs - 3.5 mi, O'Leano - 9.0 mi, Ichneetucknee - 17.0 mi)

SCUBA DIVERS: the building does have an outdoor hose for cleaning dive gear if needed.

All interior spaces of the Cottage are for guests only. Front & back yards of the cottage are dedicated for guests as well, and you are welcome to explore the property or walk the 1-mile trail. There is a private residence located approximately 100 feet from the Cottage. There is a diagram of the property & buildings located in our photos. There is also a photo of the two buildings together in the same photo so you can see relatively where things are located.

Great location for a couple getaway to Ginnie Springs.
We loved the house and our stay there. Location was great. Just a couple miles to stores restaurants and Ginnie Springs. We enjoyed a walk on the property and even picks some wild blackberries. This is a great spot for a couple wanting a quiet stay. Everything was clean and comfortable when we arrived.

A Dream Lil' Cottage!
Betsy and Bernard's place is truly a gem! I've spent a good deal of time in High Springs and this cottage is by far the nicest place I've ever stayed. The small touches like the back porch, rainfall showerhead, and little kitchenette make this place truly spectacular. Although the farm is just outside of town, it feels like you are out in the great outdoors! Betsy and Bernard go above and beyond as hosts. After my girlfriend lost her wallet on the property, they found it and offered to ship it to us right away! I am reticent to post this review since I'd love to keep the cottage as my little secret, but Betsy and Bernard deserve to have a booked up calendar ever day of the year :)
