About Roman Northcut

I enjoyed a wonderful childhood in this cabin full of exciting adventures on the lake, nearby rivers, and the Gulf. Currently, I am a partner in an interior design company. I love getting out to new places, the outdoors and water. Lakes and beaches are the best. I read a lot and enjoy hosting friends and new friends. My motto is do for others what you want to receive yourself :)

Roman Northcut purchased this cabin in 1981

Why Roman Northcut chose Crystal River

This property has been in my family for decades. Its such a beautiful and unique location with some of the best views on the lake. Recently we remodeled it to include a beautiful Florida room with lined with windows making a very relaxing place to sit and watch the lake. Lake Rousseau is also know as one of Florida's most rich fishing secrets. Quiet and tucked away from most travellers, the lake stays full of fresh water fish. For salt water and gulf fishing, only a couple miles away is a boat ramp into a large canal leading directly out to the gulf.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautifully remodeled to blend that "Dad's Fishing Hole" feel with the modern comforts of today, the Kingfish is a beautiful and relaxing get away. Away from it all, yet close to Crystal River, gives it the best of both worlds.

The cabin was cozy and the view from the living room was picturesque.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was well stocked with toiletries, towels, cooking utensils, and laundry essentials. The beds were very comfortable. Our family particularly enjoyed sitting by the water and viewing all the wildlife.

Beautiful home in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed a total of two weeks in Florida. We spent 8 nights in Orlando, 4 nights at the beach and then chose to spend 3 nights in Crystal River to visit Weeki Wachee Springs. This cabin on the lake was the perfect setting to unwind and relax at the end of a whirlwind vacation. The kids enjoyed sitting in the front room and watching the alligators and birds on the lake. We spent a few days (unsuccessfully) fishing from the dock. The location is fairly remote, but there is a nice produce stand (4 Corners Market) just up the road with some of the most delicious fruit and Amish-made products that we have had.

The sunsets from the dock were beautiful!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time staying at this cabin. It was very quiet. We most enjoyed watching the wildlife from the sun room--many different kinds of birds including eagles, osprey, egrets and alligators! We visited many state parks in the area, went on two pontoon cruises on the Crystal River and saw many manatees at different springs. There are nice restaurants in the towns around and grocery stores within a few miles. The cabin is well supplied to cook your own meals, do laundry, etc. The owner was very responsive when I had a couple questions.
