Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Melrose - Forest Hills Estate

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10

My comfy country escape is yours to enjoy year-round, for a weekend, week or month at a time. The 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom private home can accommodate 8-10 people, with 1 King, 2 Queen, and 1 Full size beds. It's a remote nature lover's paradise just 26 miles from Gainesville and University of Florida Campus & Stadium.

There is a kitchen bar, brick fireplace, oversized bath in the master suite, full laundry, 6-person dining room table, a piano, lots of open windows, a back porch and flower garden. Pet friendly, and has a chain-linked fence on the back of the home so your pups can play! When the home is rented, I stay with my fiance a few miles up the road, so I am always available to answer questions or help with anything you need!

Melrose is known for its many lakes and water activities. We also have several art galleries and wonderful antique shops. If you need any restaurant or other recommendations, please do not hesitate to ask!

The home is located 26 miles from Gainesville and UF, and less than an hour from Saint Augustine beach. We also have great little towns to explore all around, including Keystone Heights, Palatka, Starke, and historic Micanopy.

You do not need to worry about noise. I want my guests to use the space as if it were their own! Please leave the home in the same condition you found it, and smoke only outside.

INTERNET IS LIMITED. If you have your own internet access through a cell phone provider or iPad, etc., I ask that you please use it. I can offer use of my Verizon "jetpack" but do not allow video streaming, movie downloads, video game or music streaming, or anything that eats up data too quickly. Normal email and web-browsing is fine. Any data use over 2GB/week (or weekend) will be charged at $15/GB. Month-long guests must limit their use to 8GB. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but have had issues with guests in the past who have cost me hundreds of dollars in internet overage charges.

If you need anything at all, I am just a few miles away!

About Heather Lee

I was born and raised in North Florida, about an hour northwest of Melrose on the Suwannee River. After spending 7 years up north in Chicago and Philadelphia, my love for nature brought me back home. I now have a small law practice and enjoy painting, playing piano and guitar, and gardening on my little country paradise, Forest Hills Estate.

Heather was very accommodating and the house was very clean.

The house is secluded yet easy to get to.

Will stay again.

Thanks!

Fantastic Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great location for star gazing among friends and a beautiful and spacious house. Sad we couldn't stay longer. Easy to communicate and work with the owner!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and roomy we had 5 adults and 3 children and did not feel cramped at all. The outside space was very spacious. We didn't get a chance to explore close by as our business was in Jacksonville but it was not to far of a drive to lots of places. All and all we had a great time and would go back again.
