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 Florida Central Gulf Coast

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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed 4 nights in this lovely cabin. It was so comfortable and was decorated very professionally. The cabin is very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed fishing from the bank right on the property. It was a little windy while we were there, but we did get to put our jon boat in the water one day to go fishing. Has a place to put a small boat in the water and a dock right there also. The views from the Florida room were spectacular. If you love the water, love to fish and just want to get away for a few days, this is the place!

Cabin cozy

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 days at the cabin,very clean and roomy. Right on lake,fishing was great off dock. Only drawback to lake is its not boater friendly. Stay in the marked channel,loads of underwater stumps be careful. Great for canoe or kajak though. Would stay again even if I have to take pontoon boat to other waterways.Enjoyed the atmosphere and the local wildlife was great,eagles,osprey,turtles,squirrels and neighbors are very friendly.

Already Planning our Next Visit!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully decorated and superbly situated "getaway" cabin with Lake Rousseau steps from the front door. There are neighbors but you would never know they were there unless you need to ask for some expert advice on getting around the area and then they are very gracious in accommodating. It is approximately 20 minutes from shopping, restaurants, and area attractions such as Rainbow Springs State Park and the antique shops of Crystal River and Dunellon. You can fish from the dock on the property or use the adjacent ramp to launch your jon boat, canoe or kayak. My wife, 13 year old son and 16 year old daughter and her friend spent four nights at the King Fish and we all agreed that it was one of the cleanest and well appointed places we have rented. The kitchen is complete with modern and well maintained appliances and there is an attached laundry room with adequate space for your bicycles and water toys. The Florida Room with its three walls of windows offers you spectacular views of the sunrises and sunsets over the lake. It will not be long before we return to the King Fish for another relaxing vacation.
