Weekend at the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful long weekend the Lake Rouseau cottage. The property has an amazing back yard with direct access to the lake. Our 7 year old son had a great time running around among the majestic oak trees that provide a beautiful canopy. We also had great adventures at sunset on the canoe which is located on the property. The location is ideal for visits to the Springs that are just a short drive from the house. We visited Homossasa Springs, Three Sisters Springs and Rainbow Springs - they were all breathtaking! The cottage had all the comforts of home with a very well equipped kitchen and served as a great location for our family! Thank you Amy for sharing your home with us.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was simply amazing! The house is just as described and pictured! Very roomy and Amy was just the nicest plus most accommodating! We loved being right on the water and the fenced yard for our pup =] very quiet and serene. We sat in the Florida room several nights looking out to the water as it rained. The grill and the johnboat got their use from us for sure! Not one bad thing to say about our entire experience!

My husband and 4 legged child enjoyed the location, view and the fenced in yard. It was close to both Crystal River where we enjoyed Cracker’s and Seafood Cellar and Dunnellon where we always love Swampys on the rainbow. The place had everything we needed. The closeness to the several walking trails was a bonus..

Vacation Home Crystal Springs

Wonderful, homey “away from home” vacation home! The owner was very responsive from the start and info was clearing displayed on the ref. The completely fenced in yard was a dream for our two 6 month old cockers that love to run! This house even had a doggie door off the covered porch, so they could go in and out as they please. What a blessing after staying in a 9th floor hotel in downtown Tampa! Full kitchen w everything u need to cook a great meal. Huge Middle island for serving or food prep. Gorgeous updated single surface cooktop. “Char Broil” gas tank powered grill, just outside covered porch w large metal picnic table. We grilled stuffed pork chops on the grill, hot dogs and steaks and they came out great! The view and sunsets out here r beautiful. Love the waterfront view! Comes w two oversized chairs to pull out into the yard anywhere u want. Comfy! Mattresses were good and firm enough. Cute decor and homey feel. Awesome country grocery store (The Food Market) just minutes away with a real meat market and meat cuts u just don’t see today in the larger chains and they were reasonably priced. Closest Post Office is right next to the Food market in Inglis. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Fun areas close by, to go exploring or even house shopping! Be sure to try “Swampys” bar and grill in Dunnellon. It’s right on the water and the outdoor seating is even dog friendly! We brought our small blue tooth speaker and enjoyed Sirius radio on the back porch in the mornings and eves. All in all a relaxing, beautiful, quiet, breezy setting to “kick back” and enjoy the view!

Great time spent at the Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need for a wonderful relaxing time. We are big "hiker's and "bikers". There were wonderful trails for both hiking and biking in easy driving distance. This is a great central location....... short driving distance to Crystal River and Dunnellon both. Only one mile to the dam where you can hike or bike or fish, too. We enjoyed our stay.
