About Shelli

As an 8th generation native Floridian I fell in love with the area. I have a place on Drayton Island and recently purchased this property and totally remodeled it. I had in mind creating a 'Man Cave'. I set up the home for comfort and proximity to best fishing and hunting.

Shelli purchased this house in 2014

Why Shelli chose Georgetown

What can I say best hunting and fishing I have experienced in this area. Also, 2 canoes are provided for guests free of charge!

I have another rental home in Steinhatchee, FL that also provides excellent saltwater fishing and scolloping.

What makes this house unique

Outdoor enthusiast paradise! The area affords abundant entertainment. Bass fishing is the best in the area. Stripped bass and black bass are abundant. You can limit out on panfish as well. There are very large gators taken in the lake. Shrimping is the highlight of some visitors trip. The list goes on and on!

The area affords excellent fishing, shrimping, duck hunting, crabbing, alligator hunting and coot hunting. It is between the Ocklawaha river, Salt Springs and Silver Glen. Shell cracker fishing in May-June. Shrimping begins in September and goes through end of November. Bass fishing is always good. Specs show up in December. Duck, gator and coot hunting are regulated to allowable seasons.

In Welaka there is an excellent restaurant/bar called Shrimp R Us they are famous for their fried shrimp. They often have live music as well.

Porky's is the 'nearest watering hole' about 3 miles up the road.

This is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiast.

Great stay!

This place was great! There were canoes available for use and it was so much fun! It was a great hideaway to fish and relax! The house was clean and nicely stocked!

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful two month winter stay in Georgetown. Every thing was neat and clean and well equipped.

Shelli's fishing advice and methods allowed us to have a great fish fry. We immediately said we found the right

spot for our stay. Our sightseeing adventures took us throughout the Georgetown area. The weather was perfect

and we felt right at home. The house was perfect for us. Shelli is the very best. We hope to return. Whether it's

old Florida or new Florida this place is great.

Weekend Get-a-Way for 1

  • 5 of 5

Loved! Loved! Loved every min of my visit. The atmosphere is so peaceful and serene. I drove down from SC and had the chance to stay at this lovely home and just be me. I needed a brief break from the hectic strife's of life and this was the perfect environment to do just that. There were no distractions at all! Got a chance to head out on Lake George and take it all in. Enjoy some catfish and some blue crabs. And the home itself, the decor is so beautiful, so warm and inviting. I will be going back soon. I need to try that Air-boat Ride! I think, no I know, I found my new hide-a-way spot.
