|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Welcome to Cypress Point. Get away from it all in this remote, magical location along the banks of the historic Withlacoochee River. This two bedroom, two bath home is newly remodeled with careful attention to retain its old Florida character.
Cypress Point is just six miles from Dunnellon by car or by boat, but as you drive in you will see right away that its seclusion sets it apart from everywhere else. The cabin is situated in a quiet neighborhood on a peaceful part of the Withlacoochee where you can experience a constant symphony of birds, crickets and bullfrogs while the visual wonder of the 6,000-acre undeveloped state park land across the river and the carefully tended butterfly garden add to your visual delight.
You just might want to spend the entire day outside, enjoying your morning coffee on the back porch while watching the waterfowl fly by, marveling at or reading among the hummingbirds and butterflies in the garden, or launching the kayaks or paddleboards for a spin in the river to see what lies around the next bend. Later, bring out your rod and reel and try landing the big one from the dock or just go out there after dinner to enjoy a glass of wine watching the moon rise among the stars.
Store your groceries in the huge refrigerator and cook your meals out on the grill or inside the fully updated kitchen. For recipe ideas, access Pinterest with the high speed satellite internet or just turn on the TV and watch the Cooking Channel. Otherwise, it’s time to unplug; your electronics won’t be needed. There is enough visual wonder for you to treasure at Cypress Point that you will forget that cell phone even exists! This is a place where you can completely relax in a rustic but modern home away from home.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We stayed in the Blue Run Cabin (# 580499) and are now spoiled thanks to Dwight. When we pulled up all you could hear from us was Oh my gosh !!!! The setting was better than the pictures make it out to be. We took advantage of the kayaks and paddle boards. There were plenty of tubes for everyone. The house was perfect for us. the kitchen was large and well equipped. The only thing I found that we could have used was a broom.The loft is perfect for kids - adults would probably find it a little tight and it was warm up there. We could be found every day on the dock - it was so peaceful. We are already planning a much longer stay next time. Thank you again for sharing your little piece of heaven.
My husband, son and daughter-in-law enjoyed this bungalow, especially having two bathrooms. Love this simple eccentric bungalow, quite setting, natural environment, artistic wood art, landscape, excellent barbecue grill, clean gas stove, clean refrigerator and wifi. Things aren't perfect, not spotless, kitchen items not organized. But thats what we liked, we call this modern camping so we could relax and put our feet up. We originally looked for a rental on the river that excepted dogs, we have a pug & poodle terrier. Finally due to hot weather decided against include them on this adventure. If we return in cooler temperature we can take them if owner allows. We were very pleased we could kayak right from the backyard with kayaks provided in rental fee, a big plus for us with no time restraints. We kayaked everyday and enjoyed seeing a few alligators , turtles, egrets, and herons on the Whithlachoochee River. We were excited when we saw some armadillos on the road near the rental. Stumpknockers restaurant was a few minutes away enjoyed the alligator appetizer with dip and all the fresh fish, great drinks and key lime pie. If your looking for a great reasonably priced bungalow this is for you. Don't expect the Marriott. Dress casual and leave your diamonds & troubles at home. Location & bungalow best for those that like outdoors.To bad we didn't have time to fish. Wish they had an outdoor shower and fan on patio. Gina and Lance J.
Loved my visit here. My friends and I spent most of our time shooting the breeze on the back porch. The house is located along a relatively secluded stretch of river, with a Cypress preserve on the other side.
It's not too far from town and restaurants, and the nearby Rainbow River may be my favorite tubing run in Florida.
Will definitely come back next time I get a chance to come to the area.
Wonderful stay by the river. We had a great time kayaking the stream and fishing from the dock. A great place to rest and make contact with the real Florida.
there were flowers to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the property. we enjoyed using the canoe to paddle around. had a peaceful time.
When the stresses of life catch up to me... I run to the river and this sanctuary at Cypress Point. The garden, the quiet... the bumblebees and butterflies all equal a recharge for my body, mind and spirit.... and a row up the river is the epitome of my childhood memories:-) Thank you Dwight and especially for allowing me to bring my four legged kids... why I keep coming back (4 times in a year:-)
See you soon!
