About Rob and Mike

Rob and Mike purchased this property as a get away... They wanted to be close to the Withlacoochee River, Forest and Rails to Trails bike path..... While initially only visiting the property once a month they quickly grew to love the area and all that it has to offer. A few years ago they decided to look for a permanent home in the area that would be able to accommodate their love of animals and give them space to have more... Well they found the perfect place... Not far from the River House, in Sumter County a 60 acre ranch where they raise their goats, horses,chickens, donkeys and cattle on their own piece of heaven. Not wanting to completely part with the River House , they decided to rent it out as a vacation spot to travelers, so others could experience it.

Rob and Mike purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Rob and Mike chose Florida

Picking out this River House was easy.... The first time they saw this property they wrote an offer to purchase.... It was just that simple. Where else can you find a house on stilts that makes you feel like you are in a tree house on the river!

What makes this cabin unique

The property has this amazing trail that winds around the woods... with gopher tortoises checking you out as you pass them, and almost the entire property is shaded by oak trees... It has a great mystical feel!

River House

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the River House! Ideal location close to many hiking trails! Loved the fenced in property for our Aussie. The owners thoughtfully left a welcome basket for us which included dog treats! Decorated for Thanksgiving and Christmas-- perfect! Can't wait to return! Thank you Rob and Mike!!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This is definetly the place to go if you want to relax and get away from the daily routine. My husband and and I wanted to do just that and that is exactly what we got. Everything you could possibly need is in this cabin and it was perfect. The decor inside was so charming and we just felt at home! The outside river view was amazing and the grounds were well taken care of. We will definetly be back and tell family and friends about it!:)

Great private place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We rented this to get away from Hurricane Mathew . My wife and I with are Collie were able to relax and enjoy the river view on the large decks. This is truly a great little place for a couple of adults with a dog. Wouldn't want to bring small children here as the deck is high off the ground without gates or proper railings to prevent small children from falling. The owners seem to be awesome People they were helpful and nice. Thanks Mike And Rob

Will definitely visit again...and again!

  • 5 of 5

This property was in a perfect location, close enough to modern conveniences but still very quiet and private. The house was cozy and quaint with a full kitchen, including everything you would need. Lots of outdoor seating with a large fireplace area and wood was provided, which was a treat. Kayaks were also provided, and the trip upstream was beautiful. The trip back was even more peaceful, winding through the waters of the unspoiled Florida wilderness. The best part is that we got to bring the pups, and they had an amazing time roaming free on the large fenced property! Great getaway, cannot wait to get back.

Wonderful cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the rental, it had everything you could want, from kayaks to what seemed to be a brand new gas grill.

Siting on the deck overlooking the river or fishing from the dock made for peaceful and relaxing stay. The fire-pit was lovely and we spent a nice evening grilling and sitting around the pit.

The cottage was well appointed, and there was nothing we needed which was not easily accessible.

Beds were comfy and the general appearance and atmosphere were great.

We will definitely re-book, and thoroughly recommend this destination.

The stairs to the property made for a great workout!

Loved it!

Located just an hour from Tampa and and hour from ocala. Is a rolling agricultural and pristine Florida forest... The withlacoochee river and the withlacoochee state forest as well as the longest continuous road bike path in the state. Withlacoochee state trail the trail is just a short 5 minute ride from our cabin door!!!!

At 46 miles in length, the withlacoochee state trail is presently the longest paved rail trail in Florida. The trail corridor runs through small towns, ranches, and natural areas as it makes its way south from citrus springs to trilby. The trail traverses a region that offers many other outstanding recreational opportunities. Among the recreational highlights nearby are the unpaved trails in the croom area of the withlacoochee state forest, the withlacoochee river (south) canoe trail, and fort cooper state park. The withlacoochee trail will eventually join many other trails in the region, becoming part of the central florida loop.

For the trail bike users there is the croom trail: forest - croom off-road bike trail. This network of single-track forms two loops of 12 and 35 miles.

Actual trail length, including connectors, is over 55 miles. Trails consist of florida uplands, sweeping cross country trails (wooded and open) to abandoned mines and challenging pits and drop-offs. Check kiosks sites for trail maps.

Hiking trails start right from the cabin door... With the withlacoochee state forest trail head just 3 miles from the cabin. For a dip into the primordial wilderness that envelopes the withlacoochee river on its northward flow to the gulf of Mexico, take a short jaunt to nobleton (Hernando county) for a nature trail that showcases some of the biggest cypresses around. The trail is entirely in the shade of the floodplain forest – and loops around several sinkholes, including one with this massive cypress in it. It intersects with the orange-blazed Florida trail in an upland pine forest, a separate 7-plus mile adventure.

A lesser-known part of withlacoochee state forest, the oxbow trail is on the northernmost tract of the forest along the withlacoochee river, the trails and campsites all eagle scout projects. While the easy-to-follow big loop trail is a popular circuit for families and folks taking their dogs on a walk, the tougher-to-follow but more visually satisfying addendum, the oxbow nature trail, makes its way out to the very tip of the peninsula, providing excellent scenic views of the river from a variety of perspectives. Riverside camping is open to individuals and groups who obtain a free permit from the division of forestry.

Kayaking or canoeing the withlacoochee river right from the cabin in our two kayaks made available to renters. Within an hour of orlando and tampa, the withlacoochee river meanders through an unspoiled cypress forest in rural Florida. It ranks as one of Florida's most scenic rivers, and yet, it’s uncrowded and unspoiled. (on a sunny winter weekend when i visited, an 8-mile paddle involved seeing only one canoe. The count for alligators? Four.)

The river, Florida's fourth largest, winds through the withlacoochee state forest, a wild, natural region with many options for picnics and photography .

For the gay or lesbian traveler the sawmill camp ground is just 5 miles from the cabin. Sawmill is the premier gay and lesbian community in the southeast.

Relax at the heated outdoor

Clothing optional pool, experience the tranquility of the spacious grounds, walk around ricki lake with towering cypress trees along the withlacoochie.
