Wonderful 2BR home on beautiful Lake Rousseau, with all the bounties of nature on view from your sun room! Relax and unwind in our comfortable home, and explore the wild beauty of this pristine 'Old World Florida' area. From sunrise to sunset, this spot has everything- from prime fishing and boating right off your dock, to kayaking and swimming (and snorkeling!) in the crystal clear waters of nearby Rainbow River, Crystal River, Homosassa, and Weeki Wachee.

Why Tim S. chose Florida

As New York residents, we wanted a 'get-away' in the Nature Coast of 'Old World Florida'. We were fortunate enough to find a spot on Lake Rousseau, with the incredible advantage of being located 15 minutes from the clear aquarium waters of the incomparable Rainbow River... In addition, we've got fantastic adventures awaiting all around, including Crystal River (manatees, scalloping) Homosassa Wildlife Park, Ozello, and Weeki Wachee to name but a few...

What makes this house unique

Great kayaking, fishing, exploring from our back yard. Spectacular clear fresh water springs in every direction, with the Rainbow River being 15 minutes away!! Wildlife abounds and mesmerizes anyone as you simply look out your window!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Due to unforeseen reasons, we came in 2 days late. Owner Tim was very accommodating working around our schedule. Thanks Tim for your understanding & kindness!!

We are outdoor people & really loved the rental & the general area. Beautiful views of the lake & an abundance of wildlife. The Property Manager Donald, greeted us & attended to our needs. He's a great guy, he even brought us his personal fishing gear to use! He gave us tips of things to see & do & was very easy to contact if you had questions. Thanks Donald, we really appreciated your help during our stay!

The cottage was equipped with everything you would need, was clean & very comfortable. All the essentials & more were provided. The neighbors, Bob & Lynne were GREAT! Thank you so much for your hospitality, fishing tips, & the boat ride! Hope to see you next year.

Our stay at Natures Bounty was very enjoyable. We are 55+ & enjoyed the peaceful & serene setting. If you're looking for excitement & night life, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a quiet peaceful setting abundant with wildlife to enjoy what nature has to offer, this is the place! Highly recommended!! Looking forward to our next stay!

The house and location on beautiful Lake Rousseau made our stay very enjoyable. It was clean and well-equipped with everything we needed and more. If we needed anything, all we had to do was ask and it was taken care of. Fishing was very good and the sights and sounds of the animals and birds was very enjoyable. Watching the sunrise over the Lake was beautiful and very relaxing. Our favorite restaurant was Mama Sally's -- excellent food and homey atmosphere. We enjoyed the beaches in Crystal River and visiting Homosassa State Wild Animal Park. Cedar Key is also a very interesting historic town. Overall, we had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. We would recommend it to friends and relatives. Thank you, Tim, for a great vacation!

Needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

This home is located on a lovely lake in a quiet neighborhood. There is fishing, kayaking and other outdoor activities available in this rural area. The home was not ready for rental guests. There were many housekeeping issues that made the home feel uncomfortable. When I contacted the owner about my concerns he quickly had his property manager come in and clean up and it made it much better, but it was stressful having to start out our vacation that way. Also, the only outdoor furniture is a rotting picnic table, so I had to bring a chair from inside out on the little dock in order to sit by the lake. Overall, I'd say the home has a lot of potential, but the owner should be more conscientious about the upkeep if he continues to charge people money to stay there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review of our home and location, and your honest appraisal of housekeeping improvements that were needed. As you indicated, my conscientious Property Manager and wife addressed all your housekeeping issues immediately, and you can be sure our home will be kept up to 'hotel standards' from now on! I only wish you had asked about outdoor furniture, as we keep the chaise lounge chairs and other outdoor furniture inside when not in use! Thanks again, Tim S.

We stayed here while we shopped for a retirement area.We purchased a home in Dunnellon.

Very nice to have a double kayak & dock.

Had no problems with my small dog.Home is completely tiled.

Back yard is enclosed & safe .

We really enjoyed sitting on the dock.We saw several otters,alligators& many different birds.

Unforgettable getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 4th of July weekend here on Lake Rousseau! The house was very well maintained and very clean. We enjoyed fishing off the dock and paddling around in the kayaks. The owner, Tim, was more than accommodating and a pleasure to do business with!
