Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Umatilla - Cabin On The Ocklawaha River

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

Bring your boat, fishing poles, ATV, jet ski, hunting gear, and adventurous spirit!

On site boat ramp and slips, bait sales, and boat fuel sales and laundry room onsite.

The home has two bedrooms, two full baths and a full kitchen with granite counters and full appliances (stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher), living room. and dining area.

One of the most unique aspects of this home is the location, 9000s of acres of natural Florida outdoors to explore. It is not unusual to see a flock of wild turkeys or deer. So please keep that in mind and keep all food in the cabin to not attract unwanted wildlife!

This is a rural setting and does not have wifi or cable. The camp is home to several longtime and permanent residents some of which chose to display confederate flags. We are not responsible for how others maintain their lots and do not know who will be visiting from day to day. It’s not unusual to see pitched tents outside the cabin.

Paintball is to the north at Old River Paintball. Just 10 miles to the west is The Villages where there are 38+ golf courses, restaurants & shopping (chain and mom & pop), a hospital, clinics and every kind of doctor you could want. Antiquing is available at Mt Dora, Eustis, Leesburg and other neighboring towns. To the north is Silver Springs with glass bottom boats, water park and live outdoor concerts. And don’t miss the Carriage museum at Lady Lake.

Just over an hour; to the east are the Daytona, New Smyrna and Cocoa Beaches: to the south is Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld; and to the west the Golf Coast. This home is perfectly located to enjoy all that Central Florida has to offer.

About April Ashley

I am from Maryland and my wife from New Hampshire we both love the outdoors. We live in Apopka and have four grown children and five grand kids. we attend church at Journey Christian and volunteer for the Bread of Life and Wealth Insights for Local Landlords.

April Ashley purchased this cabin in 2007

Why April Ashley chose Florida

Located on the river at Nelsons Outdoor Resort, just around the bend is Lake Griffin where there is some of the best bass fishing in the area. To the north smooth water for Kayaking. A stones throw away is Sunnyhill with hiking, biking, bird watching and enjoying nature and fresh air. Two miles to the east is horseback riding and 10 miles west The Villages where there is nightly entertainment, restaurants, shopping, churches, medical facilities, and 38 golf courses.

What makes this cabin unique

Staying in this home you will notice the stars (no city lights), the quiet (no traffic) and leave your cell phones and lap tops at home and really experience the magic moments of the outdoors.

Nelsons has two boat ramps, and full hook up RV spots. or book a guided air boat tour on the river.

To the northwest is 300,000+ acres of Ocala National Forest. Here there is hunting, fishing, horseback and ATV riding.

One of the most unique aspects of this home is the location. in the woods near the lakes and just over an hour to the beach or a theme park like Disney, Seaworld, Lego Land or Universal.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were there on a fishing trip, and the owner was more than accommodating with our stay, renting us the cabin with only a few hours in advance. The cabin had everything we needed from kitchenware to towels. My son & nephew absolutely loved it! They were able to fish on the Ocklawaha River and Lake Griffin, a nearby State Park, where they also had fun canoeing. The people in the area were friendly and we would definitely consider visiting again. We had a very relaxing and pleasant time.

The cabin was in great condition and very accommodating. We brought a variety of cooking utensils and camping items but to our surprise, the cabin was already stocked with the same items. The cabin sits right near the River with a boat ramp and within 20 minutes to the Ocala National Forest ATV Trailhead (Centennial Trail). The cabin was conveniently located to grocery stores and convenient stores. We also enjoyed the privacy of having our own bedroom/bathroom. I recommend this cabin for people who want to fish on the river, go four wheeling in the National Forest or just need a get away from the city and relax.
