Quiet Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property is very well maintained with comfortable furnishings and everything you need for your stay. We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch in this quiet neighborhood. It was a great place for our family to visit us. The only issue during our stay was with the wifi but it was quickly resolved by the owners. Although the house does not actually have a river view, the small park on the riverside was only a short walk and provided a nice area to sit by the water. A variety of restaurants were available in nearby Crystal River.

nice Florida Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the month of February. The weather was wonderful and the small town was perfect for what we needed. My husband had fallen several times between October and January, so we wanted a place where he could get outside everyday and build his strength back up. The road outside our house was peaceful and flat, so we were able to walk each day. Our dog, Lucy, also loved the place. Across the street from our house were big houses, and down the street there was a cute park. Lucy explored there and my husband and I could sit on the dock and watch the river.

We stayed at the Craftsman for one of the best weeks of our vacation. Photo's do not do this place justice it was superb. In a very quiet friendly community. Tom and Sue could not do enough to make us feel anymore at home. We had the use of 2 bicycles and there was a riverside pub serving meals, we used to go for a game of pool. They also did fishing trips and eco boat trips down the river. We will certainly use them again. Thanks again Tom and Sue.

Great house on quiet street

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house over the holidays with our adult son and my father. It was perfect for us. The three bedrooms were all comfortable and quite big and the kitchen had most everything we needed to cook a Christmas dinner! The table seats four comfortably and you can squeeze in another one or two. We were able to park in the carport in back and use the grill for cooking as well. There was tv with cable and a few games provided that we enjoyed. The village of Yankeetown is quaint and very easy to walk and bike in. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch in the morning, walking through the town, catching a drink and a game of pool at the Riverside inn, caneoing on the river (provided by the owner) and fishing/ecotour with Captain Rick. It was a perfect getaway for a quiet and relaxing few days. The owners were very easy to work with and definitely wanted to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. I would most definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend in this immaculate and exceptionally decorated home! If you like to stay in extreamly CLEAN home with top notch appliances and granite countertops then this is the house and you can't beat the price! We greatly enjoyed the front porch while watching the kids fish and waving at the friendly neighbors. We were treated like family by the owners and every need was met but we also had full privacy. Can't wait to come back!!!
