Get away from it all and spend a relaxing vacation at Florida’s Nature Coast! This 1-bedroom, 1-bath vacation rental cottage in Dunnellon is ideal for a group of 5 guests looking for a private Florida getaway. The charming home rests against Lake Rosseau, allowing you to spend days on the lake with the kayak or canoe before heading out on Orlando area adventures!
Bedroom: Queen Bed | Additional Sleeping (Living Room): 2 Pullout Beds
This charming cottage is surrounded by tall trees which provide plenty of shade from the afternoon sun. Relax in the hammock in the backyard, sip some sweet tea and watch the Spanish moss dangling from the tree limbs sway gently in the breeze. Wake up and pick fresh fruit from the trees for breakfast, as exotic birds play and sing overhead.
The backyard backs up to the lake and is the ideal location to push your canoe into the water or sign up for a memorable cruise on the pontoon boat with Captain Jake. The lake is also known for its great bass fishing opportunities, so you will be telling your own fishing stories in no time!
If any of your travel companions were lucky enough to catch some fish while on the lake, you can cook your freshly caught dinner outside on the charcoal grill! The picnic table outside has plenty of seating for everyone in your group to share home-cooked meals. There's also a well-equipped kitchenette featuring a convection oven if you prefer to cook inside.
Kick off your shoes and unwind in the living room while watching your favorite programs on the flat-screen TV with DirecTV. There’s another TV in the kid’s area that has a DVD player along with a Roku for streaming Netflix.
You’re bound to sleep well after a long day on the water! Two guests can sleep upstairs in the queen-sized bed, while additional guests can sleep in either of the pullout couches in the cottage.
You can also explore the unique bomb shelter, built during the cold war and equipped with everything you will need to survive any disaster. Showcasing abstract art by up-and-coming California artist (and brother to Captain Jake) Gabe Weis, this quirky cottage could be the perfect destination for you! If you're interested in traveling with a larger group, check the availability for listing #326225, a lovely 3-bedroom home that sleeps 10 on the same lot as this cottage.
This cottage boasts an incredible location on Lake Rousseau! Take a pontoon boat, canoe or Jon boat to the Withlacoochee and Rainbow Rivers for an exciting adventure. You can also borrow the canoe or kayak for a fun and relaxing day on the lake.
Just minutes away, you’ll also find the Crystal and Homosassa Rivers, where you can discover seasonal scalloping opportunities and observe wild Manatees.
There are a variety of great restaurants located in Dunnellon that are accessible by either car or boat! Make sure to treat yourself during your stay and discover your favorite local spot for fine dining.
If you’re traveling with children, you won’t want to miss out on an opportunity to visit any of Florida’s amazing theme parks. Disney World and Universal Studios are about 1.5 hours from the cottage in Orlando.
Drive 2 hours east to visit Daytona Beach, The Space Coast and St. Augustine along the Atlantic shore. Tampa and the famous Busch Gardens are just 90 minutes away and a great attraction if you're traveling with the kids. Whether you’re seeking a relaxing lakefront vacation or exciting thrills in the Sunshine State, this is the perfect destination for experiencing all Florida has to offer!
