BHGRE Commercial recently announced that first-to-market Getaway—Modern Cabin Vacation Rentals will soon open in the High Springs area.  

Getaway cabins provide stays in nature where you can take a break from work and routines. The official opening date for the site — which will be called Getaway Gilchrist Springs and is just inside Gilchrist County — has yet to be announced.  

BHGRE Commercial agents Brian Oen and John Thomas represented both the buyer and the seller in this transaction.

“The cabins are essentially like tiny homes,” Oen said. “The cabins are basically one room that is an all-inclusive living space with a kitchen, bathroom and sleeping space. It has a very minimalist feel.” 

Renters can choose their outpost, cabin size, and dates that work best.  

The cabins offer everything you need to unwind, including queen beds, air conditioning and heat, kitchenettes, bathrooms, and much more. Plus, all cabins are fit for campfire cooking with a fire pit, grill grate, picnic table, and chairs, plus firewood or charcoal and a firestarter for purchase. 

“The site selection came from the remote aspect of High Springs and the true getaway feel it has,” Oen said. “It is close to some natural springs and rivers like Blue Springs and Ginnie Springs.” 

Getaway’s founder, Jon Staff, grew up in rural Minnesota with most of his childhood spent outdoors. While traveling, Jon discovered that being in nature was critical to his well-being, productivity, and happiness. In the summer of 2015, Staff and his college friend Pete Davis launched Getaway.

Editor’s note: This story was updated because the actual site is just inside Gilchrist County but has a High Springs address. The name of the site will be Getaway Gilchrist Springs and will be located on NE 80th Avenue south of NE County Road 340, according to the Getaway website.
