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 headboard 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.
XXA 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.

Suwannee Rivers, snorkeling or scuba diving and cave diving the many springs
