River House · ⭐ THE RIVER HOUSE ⭐ Private Beach! ⭐ Huge Spa, Kayaks, and More!




Originally built in 1962, the River House received a major restoration in 2021, and features an unforgettable vintage coastal theme. The house sits directly on the Loxahatchee Riverfront in Jupiter, Florida, facing east with panoramic views of the bay. It features top-end amenities including a white sandy beach, an 8-person spa, luxury bedding, 300 mbps internet, and a 22-speaker garden sound system. Jupiter inlet, amazing dining and nightlife, and the lighthouse are less than 2 miles away.

The River House's vintage coastal style is truly unique. The house has rich history and is decorated with a collection of antiques and collectibles throughout. The interior spaces have been tastefully restored but retain their original character. You'll notice original cedar walls throughout the house, whitewashed during the restoration to provide a bright and open feel while retaining the house's rustic charm.

Days at the River House:
-Wake up every morning to the panorama of the unobstructed orange sunrise.
-Overlook the Loxahatchee River, one of Florida's official Aquatic Preserves, from the elevated treehouse with your morning coffee.
-Immerse yourself in nature as Ospreys hunt and Dolphins peruse the shallow river waters.
-Walk the meandering paths through the River House's extraordinary landscape, featuring varieties of native and exotic plantings and water features.
-Watch the kids play on the beach, where they observe families of adorable Puffer Fish at the water's edge, capture land and sea crabs from the mangroves, or cast a line from the dock.
-Jump on the kayaks, paddleboards, or beach bikes for a morning expedition.
-Return from your morning trip and enjoy a cocktail and a bubbly dip in the 8-person spa, your favorite beach vibes playing from the 16-speaker outdoor audio system.
-Enjoy a spectacular waterside meal, cooked on our Weber Summit Kamado grill, fit for even the most selective grill master.
-If you're lucky, see our neighboring Gopher Tortoises out for a leafy roadside snack in the evening.
-Gather on the beach for toasty bonfire as the light slips away, enjoying some roasted mallows and the reflection of the moon over the water.

Come to the River House to connect with each other, the rich history of the property, and nature. Your experience will be filled with Seclusion, Tranquility, and Antiquity. Enjoy!

The River House sits at the dead-end of a private tree-lined street on the border of Tequesta, just a few minutes from the Jupiter lighthouse. The riverfront is lined with multi-million dollar houses, but the street and neighborhood are secluded from traffic and the bustle of nearby areas.

Generally, a car is recommended to explore the area, however two beach bikes are provided as well as Kayaks for getting around in the water. Boat rentals are nearby as well. Parking is available for several cars in the driveway.

This is our third time back at the River House and it never disappoints. Kids love coming back for the sandy beach, paddle boarding in the Loxahatchee, and Pirate’s Cove. My husband and I enjoyed many beautiful mornings drinking coffee overlooking the water in the morning, and sitting by the fire pit and having a glass of wine in the evenings. House has everything you would need for a family vacation and the location can’t be beat: private but near all the restaurants and fun attractions in Jupiter.

This place is absolutely magical. As everyone said it’s much nicer than the pictures. Kelley was extremely helpful we had the time of our lives. Thanks again

We had an absolutely wonderful time at The River House! The location is amazing. Very private, with its own beach front and dock. My kids had the time of their lives, playing in the sand, swimming by the dock, paddle boating, and swinging in the hammock. Great amenities including: hot tub, washer and dryer, big TVs in each room, outdoor washing area, paddle boats/khaki, and surround system outdoor.

Renting the owner’s boat was 100% worth it! Thank you Jim! The area is incredible! The lighthouse is close by and so are multiple parks that you can dock at. We highly recommend docking at Guanabanas for a great lunch. We spent two days out of the boat, and couldn’t get enough.

The River House is an amazing location, with tons to do at the house, and in the surrounding area. The house was just as amazing and clean as the pictures show. My daughter, who rates everything as “meh” (including a Disney cruise) said it was the best vacation she’s ever had. You want to stay here!

Kelly’s River House was exactly as advertised, provided ample space and amenities for three families, and truly exceeded our expectations. Further, Kelly quickly responded to each of our inquiries even though each of our questions were already answered in the guest guide provided. The River House is a special gem in a great location and Kelly’s hospitality made it that much better.
