The villiage of Steinhatchee is a complacent fishing community which has retained its pristine natural surroundings and serenity for over a century. The Steinhatchee area is renowned for its surplus of trout and redfish, as the pristine and uncongested waters challenge the most skilled anglers. The villiage also has a deep water port adequate for larger vessels and off-shore fishing excursions.
Steinhatchee combines the ambiance of the 19th century with the conveniences of the 20th. Victorian waterfront homes line the shores and footpaths and gardens sequester the surroundings. Steinhatchee is often referred to as "The Best Kept Secret in Florida."
