The Space

Rum Island Retreat is located next door to Rum Island Park with free access to the Santa Fe River and the beautiful, clear, freshwater springs. It's your gateway to canoeing, boating, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, sunning and more. Our river rental home is nestled in the woods on a hill above the river. It's just a short walk down the path to the river and into the park. There are local taxes of 10% that will be collected on check-in. We are now accepting rental reservations with a minimum stay of two nights. Afternoon check-in is 3:00 PM, and morning check-out is 11:00 AM. (If the cabin is available, you may check-in earlier and check-out later.) The beautifully furnished cabin sleeps a maximum of 9, with a recommendation of six adults and three children. Sleeping accommodations include 6 single beds, 1 full futon bed and 1 chair bed. A Higher Place at Rum Island Retreat is the perfect spot to meditate and hold intimate spiritual events. Get away from it all and rejuvenate with us.

There is also an outdoor kitchen exclusively for your use. Your privacy will be respected as much as possible. There is another occupied structure in a fenced off area on the 10-acre property away from the main house.

The Neighborhood

Rum Island Retreat is nestled in the verdant Florida woodlands right next door to Rum Island Park with access to the Santa Fe River and the crystal clear springs. The cabin is secluded, but there are a few neighbors nearby, and it's just a short 10-minute drive into High Springs, a cute historic town with local restaurants and shops. Another 25 minutes away is the city of Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators. Check out the nightlife, restaurants, shopping, museums and more. See alligators up close on Payne's Prairie or cheer on your team at a Gator football game.

Getting Around

Driving your own car or renting a car is suggested. Kayak, boat and tube rentals are available nearby.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
