River Haven Marina & Motel is located in the “Big Bend” region of Florida on the Steinhatchee River and less than two miles from the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is an ideal location for those who want to center their stay around fishing, water sports, sunny quiet days and cool sea breezes at night. We’re 65 miles from either Tallahassee or Gainesville.
Rent the River View House and relax by your own private pool, take a dip in the spa or barbecue freshly caught seafood on the grill. Or perhaps tie up at the River Haven Cottage with veranda overlooking your private dock on the river.
River Haven also offers affordable motel rooms with either two double beds or up to three twin beds. Each room is fully equipped with cable TV, air/heat, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker for your convenience.
Try our rental boats and kayaks. We offer several different models of motorboats from 19-foot Carolina skiff with 50 HP Honda motor and marine speakers to 21 and 24-foot Deck Boats, with marine stereos installed and powered by 200 HP Yamaha motors.
If you prefer using muscle instead of motor power, try a kayak. We have single and tandem (two person) kayaks. Each comes with paddle, life jacket and for sit-on-top boats, a padded seat. Steinhatchee Falls makes a great starting point for a six-mile nature filled trip. We shuttle you to the falls and you follow the current downstream, returning to our marina.
