Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy a getaway vacation in this wonderfully decorated cottage. This house has been fully renovated and professionally decorated by Velvet Cabbage in a relaxing cottage style. You will be amazed by the before and after pictures. The entire furnishings are for sale by Velvet Cabbage. The queen-size beds are two side independent air adjustable beds (by Anderson Beds), so you can set it to the way you like your bed.

The back-deck overlooks Church Lake and connects into the large Tsala Apopka Lake system. If you love to fish, then you will be in your element. There is a small dock that can accommodate a bass boat or other small boat. The 'Rails to Trails' bike path is only 100 feet from the driveway where you can walk or bicycle the entire 42 mile trail. There are bikes available for your use. The cottage sits on one acre and provides a quiet and secluded escape.

This is a natures getaway where you can bird watch and enjoy all the other wild life that abounds in this area. Homosassa and Crystal River are close by for more wild life viewing. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck and listening to natures orchestra that plays every night from the lake.

The house is located one hour from Disney World and one and a half hours from Tampa. It is close enough to the Florida attractions but away from the traffic and crowds. There are numerous golf courses located nearby and including some championship courses.

This is the perfect place for a week or a month. Ask about a monthly rental discount; escape the cold winter and come to Florida for much less than a hotel room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay here in this lovely cottage. As soon as we walked in the decor left us absolutely breathless. The color palette was very relaxing and soothing. The backyard deck was amazing. We kayaked through Church Lake and enjoyed the biking trails. We spotted some deer along the trails too! We explored the town and found that the locals were very pleasant. We went to a few antique stores and thrift shops and had great lunches in town :)



We even built an awesome bonfire!! Although there were many entertaining things to do throughout the town, we always loved coming back to the cottage. We felt really at home here. It's truly been a romantic, rustic, adventerous experience. So unlike everything in Miami.



Can't wait to come back!

This cottage was exactly how it showed in the pictures. Exactly what we were hoping for when we booked our stay. Close to where we had family and friends.

Beautiful comfortable cottage! A cool and partly shady deck with great furniture and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for anything more! The cottage was over the top pretty, well equipped, and so clean! Everything was there as promised and in working order. The owners were gracious and so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the bikes and kayak. We would recommend staying here! Simply a treasure of a place.

Comfortable, eclectic cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful February here. The kitchen is fairly well equipped for stay-in meals, the bed comfortable and the deck in back is just great. Can't beat that view and the privacy it provides.

Fifty yards from driveway to 46 mile rails-to-trails biking, running, walking trail. Easily launch your kayak from the back yard. You really don't have to go anywhere if you don't want to. But you should. Parks and good restaurants are reasonably close. GO TO SEAFOOD SELLER CAFE IN CRYSTAL RIVER. It's worth the 20 mile drive.

Only drawback, a minor one, is the weekend motorcycle traffic. It can be pretty noisy.
