Nestled on the headwaters of the Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River across from Riverbend Park, this private retreat is lush with native plant life, organic gardens, and hiking/biking trails that lull a soothing vibe. The lodge is constructed from up-cycled shipping containers directly on the river: 3 bdrms+bonus room off master with bunk, 2 full baths, kitchenette, living/dining combo, upper & lower patios. Bikes on property. Discounted or free kayaking/canoeing nearby. PETS REQUIRE $100 FEE

The space
Main floor: walk in to a spacious and comfortable entry way that opens into a kitchen, living room, dining room combo. Downstairs bathroom can be accessed by the master bedroom or the main home. Master BR and bonus room with twin-over-full bunk are separated by sliding louvres.

Second floor: take the stairs located just outside the main floor to an incredible view of the river, glimpses of Riverbend Park, and into your 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. These are good-sized rooms with additional small refrigerator and coffee pot. Enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon break sitting out on the patio of the second floor. Both rooms are joined by a full bathroom, and this space has two separate entries.

Headwaters Jupiter currently is the only approved residence in the area constructed from these containers, and although of unique construction and design, you will be amazed at the welcoming feeling and sense of well-being you will find during your stay.

It is located on the headwaters of The Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River across from the 700 acre Riverbend Park with several miles of bike and paddle trails. Guests have full access to bikes on property (up to 8 ppl). With Riverbend Park at the north end of the street, in just a few minutes, you’ll be biking inside one of Florida’s most pristine parks. Only a 10-15 minute bike ride to Jupiter Outdoor Center (JOC), where you can take out discounted or free kayaks/canoes. You can even paddle back to the retreat in about 25 minutes! Just be sure to return the boats to JOC before closing to grab your bikes for the ride home. And don’t miss heading north on the river to the nationally designated Wild and Scenic portion where you’ll be enveloped by an amazing Cypress canopy.

Where you’ll be

Jupiter, Florida, United States

The residence is located in the quaint community of jupiter Farms, a nature-lover’s and equestrian paradise. Miles of hiking, biking, and paddling trails right from this property. Kayaking and canoeing on the Loxahatchee River is amazing. Wildlife everywhere!

The only thing as rare and unique as container living in Palm Beach County is the river it is on, the Loxahatchee:

On May 17, 1985, The Loxahatchee River, our local treasure, found itself in the national spotlight when the United States' Congress designated a total of 7.1 miles of the river as "Wild and Scenic." Congress passed the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 1968 for the specific purpose of protecting and preserving free-flowing rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational value to the community. This award indicates that the stretch of river from Riverbend Park downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park remains essentially primitive and unpolluted.

A rather rare recognition, the National System protects only 12,598 miles of 203 rivers nationwide, which represents less than one-quarter of one percent of all the country's rivers. The Loxahatchee River is one of only two Wild and Scenic rivers in the state, representing a mere one-fifth of one percent of Florida's 25,949 miles of river, making this title truly a mark of distinction.

Your stay includes free kayak/canoe rentals for stays of 3 days or 50% discount for 2 days for (up to 8 people) at Jupiter Outdoor Center, located inside Riverbend Park. Just a short bike ride through Riverbend Park.

Grateful resident of Jupiter Florida since 1979 where I have been blessed with a wonderful family , built business's and have enjoyed its glorious waters. Since hosting thru Airbnb I have met many interesting people that I never would have met thru my traditional real estate company, Sherlock Home Finders and Weichert Realtors Sunshine properties. I enjoy sharing my love of Jupiter and its awesome tropical nature and waterways.
