Secluded at the heart of the beautiful and wild Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, this unique small community overlooks the river, salt and fresh water creeks and man-made canals. Experience nature at its untouched best while enjoying our waterfront accommodation, great seafood or down-home restaurants, marinas and expert fishing guides.

An unparalleled area of diverse natural environments, the wild and scenic estuary forms a natural blending zone for its marine and freshwater habitats and a division between the temperate and neo-tropical regions of the Gulf coast. The river mouth opens to a scenic vista of tidal marshes dotted with small coastal islands, an area of shallow waters or "flats" and oyster bars teaming with fish. Natural salt marches and tidal flats attract thousands of shorebirds while acting as a nursery for fish, shrimp and shellfish.

One of the largest undeveloped delta-estuarine systems in the United States, the area is protected by the 52,935-acre Lower Suwannee Wildlife Refuge. The refuge was established in 1979 and covers both sides of the Suwannee River upriver for almost fifteen miles and 26 miles of Gulf habitat. The overall goal of the refuge is to provide optimum conditions to manage and protect the natural heritage of the area, while giving as much public access as possible.
