About

Natures Best Canvas! 

I passionately feel family, friends and today’s youth easily forgets how to appreciate nature and wildlife. This is where Blue Springs Retreat was born. 

Making memories with family and friends with use of photography while exploring the historic St. Johns River and its natural fresh-water springs!  Photographers/nature lovers  get ready to explore and experience Florida's at its best; distinct treed banks with manatees, various thousands of different bird species (i.e. owles, bald eagles, pelicans, northern harriers, sandhill cranes, wood storks, yellow-crowned nights, mottled ducks, moorhens & many more), gators, turtles and much more in this natural tranquil setting. This river and adjoining lakes are also considered the bass fishing capital of the world.

Time to show your friends and family why it’s important to sometimes put the phones/electronic devices down and experience nature and all it has to offer.  

My wife and I closed on the water-front lot (Volusia County parcel # 580601000310) in central Florida on July 24, 2019 and are now ready to build a 2/2 cabin retreat so photographers/nature lovers and their friends and family have the opportunity to experience and explore this beautiful river and adjoining natural fresh water springs (Silver Glen Spring, Ponce de Leon Spring, Salt Springs Run & Blue Springs).  The log cabin retreat (aka Blue Springs Retreat) will have all the modern accommodations of a regular home (air conditioning/heat, electricity, stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator, washer/dryer, coffee maker & television) as the lot location is located in a rural but residential area. The cabin retreat will also have a new pontoon boat so guests can explore and photograph the water ways in comfort. There will also be 2 kayaks and 2 canoes at the property for those who want to be closer to nature at water level.

Once full funding has been accomplished, a professional cabin building company will be retained for the build-out and necessary arrangements will be made to equip the property with necessary furnishings and boating equipment/gear for all donors to enjoy.
