Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Hawthorne - RILEY LAKE HOUSE

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Perfect getaway to enjoy the sunsets on the lake each night. Would be perfect for snowbirds wanting to get away from the cold and snow in the north during the winter. Private lake where fishing is great. This is a wooded area and the house sits on 1.2 acres.

Canoe and paddles are onsite. There is also a jon boat with oars. You can also launch your own boat from the property.

Roast marshmallows over a camp fire and eat either on the dock or the picnic table.

Enjoy swimming, fishing, and canoeing on a beautiful, private, spring-fed lake.

Disney World or the Orlando area attractions are about a 2 hour drive. Busch Gardens and other Tampa Bay area attractions are about a 2 hour drive.

Great for Gator Games

  • 5 of 5

Unable to find a hotel for a recent Gator football game a friend of mine recommended checking out VRBO. Not only did we save big money on what we would have spent on a hotel, we had a great place in the country to fish, grill and chill. All amenities were as advertised and pictured, and having the pinball machines available for play was great. Enjoyed a few bonfires, spent time fishing(sadly no luck) and did some canoeing. When it came time for the game we were only about 20 - 30 minutes away. And since the house is east of campus there was much less traffic afterwards on the way back than if we had been out west. I would recommend this over a hotel any time. Also a nice place to get away from it all in a great country setting - would definitely do it again. Thanks, mate!!

A Slice of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our wonderful 3 night stay. This little slice of Heaven on Earth was easy to find (thanks for the good directions), clean and nicely decorated. I loved the showers! Great water pressure. Lots of hot water. The property was beautiful, the lake pleasantly warm, and the sunsets magical. We took advantage of the convenient shopping at the Hitchcock's and Dollar General in Hawthorne. Rested, read, watched movies, and played in the water. Looking forward to going back and trying out the fishing.

Great price, Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Very relaxing. It was a great getaway. The kids loved the canoe and the floating dock. The house was in great condition and very comfortable. The pinball machines were a plus. We loved playing the one in the garage. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, this is a great place to do it.

Just tremendous

  • 5 of 5

My nephew and I stayed here for a four-day fishing get away. The house and property are very comfortable and relaxing, very quiet area. We used the owner's John boat, but the huge dock is also a great fishing spot. I was impressed that everything we needed was there in the house, except for the food. But even with that, the cupboard and refrigerator were stocked with several condiments and such. Getting to the house took some effort, as we totally missed the huge piece of driftwood marking the entrance (our bad for not paying better attention)' but once we got to the house we had no problem getting in. Loved the stonework in the showers! We took a break from fishing to explore the area...the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings home is a great place to spend a few hours and get a feel for old Florida. Micanopy is also close by, with lots of antique shops and the best bbq in Florida is at Pearls on 441. Can't wait for a return trip!
