Overview

About the property

Two bedrooms home on canal with access to Gulf.

The cottage is located on the canal leading to the Gulf of Mexico and great fishing. The 1940's home is remodeled, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, laundry, two bedrooms with queen sized beds (both are Beauty Rest, one is less than a year old), and a large bathroom with tiled shower. The house is comfortable and should provide all you need for your stay. Wood deck all around provides star gazing and cool breezes. The Lower Suwannee River Management area is a quick 15 minute drive and provides unspoiled beauty.

About Ramona

I am originally from Florida and grew up on the salt water. I recently found an old 8mm movie of me rowing a dinghy when I was 3 years old, although it was tied to the shore of the Anclote River. I lived in this house in Horseshoe Beach for 18 years; I now live in my childhood home on the river.

Ramona purchased this house in 1996

Why Ramona chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

The house is located on a canal with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and some of the best fishing in Florida. Having lived here for 18 years, the home is designed and equipped to be lived in - not simply a place to stay.

What makes this house unique

Horseshoe Beach is one of the few remaining towns along the Gulf Coast that is still quaint, quiet, and laid back. The fishing, both inshore and offshore is great. Dixie County has approximately 40 miles of coastline with only 1 mile in private ownership; the rest is sawgrass and salt marshes.

Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend getaway at the cottage in Horseshoe Beach. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything. The local restaurant was still closed due to storm damage, so it was good to have a kitchen to make our meals. I love the decks for sitting outside and enjoying watching the birds while drinking coffee. Some boards had been replaced and it felt safe.

Very quiet, clean, relaxing and comfortable. Stars at night were very bright compared to other places.

Cute Cottage

  • 3 of 5

The Cottage on the Canal is a cute, comfortable place to stay. My only recommendation would be for the owner, Ramona to look at replacing some of the boards on her deck and also the railing. The railing is loose and if a lot of weight would be put on it, something bad could happen. Overall the cottage has that feeling of home and is well taken care of.

Away from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

"Ramona's Hideaway" fit our needs for a landing spot as we were under a mandatory evacuation order due to Hurricane Matthew. The property was clean and had almost everything we needed for the two days riding out the storm. Our thanks to Ramona for taking us in with our three cats—who were a bit spooked to be away from home, but weathered the storm well.

If you're accustomed to following the news and staying in touch via TV, smart phones and tablets, you will be disappointed with Horseshoe Beach, which only has Verizon phone service, (we have AT&T) and sketchy AT&T wifi that went in and out during our stay. On top of that the property had no television reception so we were unable to follow the news to see what was happening on the east coast, where our home is located.

If you're looking for a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of city life, or a place to go fishing, Horseshoe Beach is perfect for you. Otherwise, there's very little to do here, and the closest restaurant is seven miles away. Still, we enjoyed the down time, caught up on our reading, although worried about what was happening back home. Luckily, we found no damage to our home when we returned. So all's well that ends well.

weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Had a great weekend visiting with my son and grandson, a little older but really enjoyed. We didnt think about the weather on our way didnt realize there was a storm, so spent most of our weekend inside. Would go back for sure.
