About jennifer ouellette

I'm a court reporter and full time mom and husband is a pilot.

jennifer ouellette purchased this house in 2001

Why jennifer ouellette chose Florida

We only have this one property and we live about 20 min away and can be attentive to every detail. We lived in this house, which I bought from my parents. I have a special attachment to this home and feel so blessed to be able to share it with our guests.

What makes this house unique

The open feel and extremely high ceilings makes this house very unique to the neighborhood. When you walk in the front door, it's amazing how impressive the area and layout is. People always tell me the photos do not do it justice. The fenced-in back garden is very private and perfect for families with pets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much. We enjoyed the house and pool during Leesburg Bikefest. Plenty of room for our large family, great deck with garden lights. Nice! We will definitely be back! Dennis crystal tracy Fred

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house. It's very spacious and the back yard is private and relaxing. There is everything you need in the kitchen. Jennifer and Eric were very welcoming and helpful. Inverness is a great place to stay. Beautiful walking trails and lots of great restaurants. We really enjoyed it. Thank you !!

Owner's Response: Really enjoyed this family. Having them down for six weeks and miss them already. So glad to know you found your way around and discovered all the area has to offer. The paved biking trails which were once train tracks are endless and within walking distance and the restaurants are unique as well as lots of chain types to choose from.

Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a cozy place to spend the holiday with family that lived in the area. Found the place on HomeAway and made the decision based on the photo's. We were happy that the photo's were recent and the home was well represented and accurately described. The open floor plan was perfect for what we were using it for. All the appliances were fully functional and there were many 'extras' that came in handy. We loved the surprise that our host left for us upon arriving. The only negative the entire trip was it was too chilly to use the pool, and it was crystal clear! We plan on coming back!!

Owner's Response: Was so great to hear all the positives. November in Florida is a great month. Plenty of sun and low humidity. With temperatures dipping down at night then going back into the 80's during the day the pool feels as cool and refreshing as the natural springs nearby. Invigorating for sure.

Lovely, spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our month here very much. It felt like home. The house is spacious and comfortable and the back yard is so private and relaxing. We loved sunbathing on the deck and swimming in the large pool. It was very helpful that this home has an office area with a desk because we work from home. This was our first time in Citrus County and we really fell in love with the area, especially the Withlacoochee Trail, the Florida Artists Gallery, and Rainbow Springs State Park. We felt that the owners of this property have an exceptional sense of how a vacation rental should be run. And we are so thankful they welcomed our dogs!

Owner's Response: Just so blown away to get such wonderful remarks. I'm so glad you enjoyed our home and citrus and surrounding counties. It really is a hidden gem. The month went by too fast and we look forward to having you all back, furry paws included always.

This home was the perfect choice for our family. My wife and I were on our anniversary and this was the area we met. My wife walked in and fell in love with the house immediately. It felt like we were home. The owners are awesome and easy to work with. It was a perfect weekend!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Two families with 4 children (2 8 yr olds and 2 10 yr olds) and 4 adults stayed here and we had plenty of room. The home was very clean and just as listed on site. The deck is wonderful and plenty of seating. Comfortable bedding. The decorating is just beautiful. There was just one little thing we noticed when we arrived and brought it to Jennifers attention which she responded to immediately. We loved the home and had no problems whatsoever and will return again.

Owner's Response: This group was wonderful and I could not even tell they were there. Very clean group and so friendly. When they pointed out the problem with the pool steps, we replaced them immediately since they had been reinforced and we had a new backup in our storage unit. Thanks so much.
