Located on the Fruitland Cove along the historic St. Johns River just north of Lake George. This romantic 'get-away' house is tucked among a canope of live oaks, facing west towards the Ocala National Forest, where you will find the sunsets breath taking from our covered boat dock. Lake George is three miles south by boat, and it has long been known as the 'Bass Capital of the World'. In days gone by, Spanish gallions sailed to the mouth of Lake George for fresh water and rice from a native settlement on an island that pre-dates St. Augustine. History and romance await you here at Pauline's Paradise. If you aren't into fishing - the birds, view and an occasional manatee under the dock will just add to your enjoyment of this quiet and peaceful place.
The luxurious river house consists of:
Master Bedroom - Queen Bed
Wrap Around Lanai- King Bed (River View)
-Large HD Television
-Bose Surround Sound System
-Full sleeper sofa by Scan Design.
-Wood Burning Stove
-Combination Tub and Shower
-Seats 6 – 8 people
This private and secluded water front property is located in southern Putnam County, nestled in the middle of the historic Fruitland Cove. Just to the south is Georgetown, where the St. Johns River enters Big Lake George. A short boat ride in either direction you will find Silver Glen Springs, Salt Springs and the Ocklawaha River. South Putnam County is like the old Florida of yesterday. The Oak canapies, the scenery along the water, and the absence of traffic and noise make Putnam County (and especially the River House) a little slice of paradise to many.
It was near here that Marjorie Kinnan Rawling wrote, 'If I could have and hold forever, one brief place of beauty, I think I might choose the night on that high bank above the St. Johns River.'
Whether this is a regular vacation spot or a new one, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you.
