Ken and I met in 2000. He is a practicing dentist and a master woodworker. I was a former RN but was running a sign shop when he walked through my door. Don't know if it was the tool belt or the fact that I owned my own panel saw but he asked and I said 'yes'. We've been building Two Hawk Hammock ever since.
Heidi Schwiebert purchased this house in 2001
We bought the property in 2001, partly because it was next to Devil's Den which we already had an interest in; was the right amount of acreage; and partly because it is the home of a beautiful Live Oak Tree that I fell in love with. This tree's presence spoke to me of longevity, stability, shelter, and endurance. Just what I was looking for in a new home. So, this wonderful old tree created a hammock and a couple hawks seemed to like it as much as we did and the name, 'Two Hawk Hammock', just sort of popped out of our mouths at the same time and we never questioned why. The tree has many far reaching limbs that welcome all sorts of interesting folks. I hope you will be one of them.
Come visit the wood shop; take a hand crafted soap class; go for a trail ride; or just sit and watch the emus and horses wander in the pasture.
Two Hawk Hammock is next door to Devil's Den Springs which is a prehistoric sink hole and world famous scuba diving resort. Located between Gainesville and Ocala. Approximately 1 1/2 hours from Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa. Very little traffic with unique antique shopping and easy access to groceries, gas, and drugstore.
We rented this house for a Weblos weekend trip. Heidi was extremely helpful the whole time and worked with us. The animals were great and the extensive property was great for the kids to play. The covered outside areas were wonderful when it rained. I'd highly recommend this home to anyone who wanted to stay in the area.
I had 14 people, but this house easily sleeps 16, and could potential sleep more if you brought an air mattress. Inside the house is very open, which allows everyone to spend time together as opposed to many sectioned off rooms. The beds were comfortable, everything was clean, and the hosts were easy to communicate with. We will return if there is a similar need. Oh it is was a special treat to see all of the animals near and on the property!
We stayed at Heidi's home with 3 other families for the Florida State Babe Ruth Softball Championship Tournament and we couldn't have been happier with the house and its surroundings! Our children fell in love with the horses and goats on the property along with ample space for them to play. And the adults enjoyed the separate living spaces and large common areas within the house. We held a team BBQ one of the days during our stay and the other families couldn't believe how amazing the property was! I highly recommend this rental if you're looking for accommodations in the North Central Florida area for a family vacation, wedding, or quite get-away. We will absolutely stay here again! Thank you Heidi and Victor!!
The house is spacious with room for privacy & for socializing. The owner was kind & cooperative. One of the showers & the fridge could have been cleaner, which could've been because 1 family came early.
