S_P4090035   Indulge yourself in the solitude afforded by only six rooms nestled among seven acres in a ranch style setting.  Enjoy a stroll around the property, play cards, games, or just curl up and read a book.  Whatever you do, you won't want to miss the magnificent sunsets you can enjoy from the comfort of a rocking chair on the front porch, or listen to the rain falling on the tin roof.  To top it all off, settle in for the night in the comfort of a king or queen size bed and sleep to your hearts content.  Our motto is "it's time to relax".

The Rustic Inn combines staying at a traditional bed and breakfast, staying in an exceptional hotel, and being close to nature.  Each of the uniquely appointed 400 square foot rooms based on nature themes, is a mini-getaway in itself.  For example, the Zebra room offers a vanity and bathroom elevated two steps above the black and white carpeted living and sleeping area with a twelve foot ceiling and paddle fan.  The walls are gracefully appointed with paintings and decorations that compliment the room's theme.   A bank of windows overlooks a private deck and the North pasture.  The bed frame and massive
outside3_smallheadboard are handmade from Western Red Cedar timbers by a High Springs artisan and pillows are abundant.  All rooms have a coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge.  Your comfort is controlled by your own thermostat and each room has a private complete bath with tub and shower; and private entrance.  Other rooms include Cat, Panda, Sea Mammal, Tropical and Everglades.  Enjoy a different room on each of your visits.
S_P4090033XXA continental breakfast basket filled with cereal, oatmeal, muffins, and fresh fruit is prepared and brought to your room each evening of your stay, providing the option of rising early to enjoy your days activities or sleeping in.  When you're ready to explore the great outdoors, you can immerse yourself in one of the many crystal clear springs or float the protected four mile stretch of spring water at Ichetucknee State Park.  Hike the maze of bridges and trails where the Santa Fe River goes underground at O'Leno State Park, or climb your way down hundreds of stairs into one of Florida's deepest sinkholes at The Devil's Millhopper or lazily wander your way back a century in time, exploring the numerous antique malls, shops, galleries and railroad museum housed in the historical buildings in downtown High Springs.

Area recreational opportunities include:  Canoeing and kayaking the Santa Fe, Ichetucknee and Suwannee Rivers, snorkeling or scuba diving and cave diving the many springs (instructions available), tubing the Ichetucknee, hiking, archery at the Easton Sports Complex just 9 miles down the road, bird watching and cycling the uncongested country roads.  In addition, the University of Florida campus which offers a variety of athletic, cultural and historic events is only 20 minutes from the Inn.

We extend to you a warm hand of friendship and invite you to come and experience the gentle ambiance which makes the Rustic Inn a place for dreams, private moments and quiet times.  This is where you want to be if you want to turn off the rest of the world.  We know you will enjoy a uniquely different Bed and Breakfast experience here at the Rustic Inn.
