We had a fantastic vacation at the shack. The location was ideal. We enjoyed exploring local springs, scalloping, and hanging out at the sandbars. The shack itself was a great setup. We enjoyed the seclusion of the screened-in back deck every night (it was very private & we had n…

Glad your visit at the shack was positive. It's a very unique place so I am glad you enjoyed the seclusion and the natural setting. The porch, ah, many people comment on the porch, how much they enjoy just sitting and watching the river parade. Or that first cup of coffee in the morning. Or a good book. Puzzled about the sheets and 'comforter' though. The master has a custom quilt (approx. 2 years old) to match the bed skirt and pillow shams. I'll speak to my cleaning lady about the sheets as they are fairly new. I do know I am very very demanding when it comes to everything being squeaky clean and she delivered on that requirement I am glad to know. I live some distance away so I rely on her to do everything. Perhaps she mismatched a top sheet to the fitted sheet but that doesn't sound like her. The sheets are in sets. Rest assured I will visit with her about your remarks. We plan to visit for some repairs after the next guest so I will take a long look at all the bed linens. I thank you for mentioning this... overall, I am heartened you had a happy birthday and will perhaps be a guest next year. Now you know your way around Steinhatchee and there's no risk you might not know your way around. Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. All the best.

We stayed for a whole week in The Shuck Shack and we did not want to go home!!!! We’ve already started our planning for another visit next year and hope to return to The Shack! It’s minutes from town and the ride on the boat out of the channel is amazing! Suzanne responded to my …

Julia, So very good to hear about your positive experience. Fun is the main objective of a trip to Steinhatchee and the Shack. The few times I called to check on you, you were busy having a good time. Just as it should be. The surrounding woods make for some interesting critter observations. Yes it is private. We like that too. See any owls? Manatees? Fred and I work had to keep the Shack as perfect and welcoming as possible. We love the boat ride of the river, too. Just enough time to tidy up the boat or just sit back and take it all in. I'll look for those horseshoes and corn hole boards, Julia. Shoot me an email and tell me where you left them. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Suzanne and Fred

First off we stay in Steinhatchee every year and normally in a higher end place. The prices were about the same except this place has a dock on the river. First we asked if we could check in early and we were told yes, when we arrived I contacted "Fred" via text with the #provide…

Such a great place for two couples. I could keep my boat on the dock, which saved a lot of time each day. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was great for cooking all the seafood we caught. We took a night cruise up the river one night and the stars were …

William, I was a little worried about Hurricane Hermine barging in on your last day at the Shack. Good to know you didn't have issues. Really cool that you enjoy the same things we do, the remoteness, the old Florida feel, occasional visits by neighborhood critters, most are friendly I might add... So glad you enjoyed our place. It's a little off the beaten path and tucked down a woodsy dirt road. We always see something different from before. Look forward to hosting you again. Thanks, Suzanne

Lawrence, sorry I am tardy in this reply... Bummer about the boat issues. Been there done that. Thanks for leaving the place in great shape. Now that you know how to find our little river front hideaway, come on back. Steinhatchee is just down the road from Atlantic Beach. Thanks for visiting us. The welcome mat is out for next time.
