About us

We are generational Floridians who love the outdoors. Offering a Florida vacation home for families to enjoy this beautiful area is work that we love. Providing individual attention to each family's trip makes this the best place to stay when you visit Florida. Whether you are here to see family, visit theme parks, business or check in on your college kids at Stetson, this is your home away from home.

As a family we spend time biking the trails, riding the rivers, sitting on the back porch and cooking up great southern food for family and friends. 

Hospitality is in our nature. The home is prepared just for your group. 

Self-check in and plenty of amenities gives you a comfortable stay.  

We are on-call during your visit, but your privacy is our top priority.

We can't wait to host you at River City's Retreat!
