About us

The Boathouse at Lake Santa Fe Harbor is located on the site of the famous Buddy’s Landing. This was a favorite gathering place and vacation getaway for thousands of North Florida residents over the past 50 years. The new owners insist on offering clean, comfortable lodging in newly renovated cottages for memorable events with the stunning backdrop of Lake Santa Fe.  When renovations are completed we plan to offer summer BBQ food trucks and catering for boaters, and peaceful, private weekend getaways For friends and families to recharge.  Unplug from the chaos and get away … it’s better at the lake!

Although still undergoing dock replacement and other renovations, six cottages are available for rent!  Additionally, we are anxious about replacing the old restaurant space with a covered pavillion to serve many purposes but do not have a project date set yet.
