Wonderful place in nature

  • 5 of 5

The location of the cabin is wonderful. A large private yard on the border of a lake/swamp gives you the feeling of being in the middle of nature. The sound of many kind of frogs is very relaxing. Most cabins in the neighborhood were not inhabited when I was there (early June) and that gave me the feeling I had the lake entirely for myself. The cabin is equipped with everything you need, and more. Very nice and convenient for people who like to relax in a natural environment. The owner was very friendly.

Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

This cozy cabin has a beautiful view of the lake from the dock chairs. So relaxing! The location is ideal for driving the loop roads throughout Ocala National Forest, and then landing back at the cabin after an excursion. Very convenient. Salt Springs is just a short distance away, and is a must-see.

Rustic cabin, great atmosphere, lasting memories!

  • 4 of 5

My family, our dogs, and I had a great weekend in the forest. So much fun. We made good use of the back yard. We jumped on the trampoline, sat on the swing, had a campfire, and watched the sun set over the lake.

The cabin has a lot of amenities a tent doesn't offer, but not so many that you don't feel like you're roughing it.

Had a great time!

Best way to see Ocala!

  • 5 of 5

Every year my friends and I try to make it up from south Florida to do a little camping in the many incredibly beautiful springs of Ocala National Forest. We decided instead of tenting it we would stay at this property. You pull up a small path right by a clean gas station (that we frequently resupplied at) and drive down a tree covered road till you get to the home. First thing noticed will be how perfectly clean, tidy, and welcoming the entire property is. There's a large pull out futon with some chairs and a TV and magazine stand in the front room. A perfect kitchen with clean and working oven, microwave, and fridge that has pots, pans, and plenty of utensils and cutlery. The dining room seats 7 comfortable but could probably even manage . The beds were absolutely comfortable and the bathroom was in perfect working order where plenty of towels and other amenities( not just in the bathroom) that would make a hotel room look cheap. We played foosball, built a fire in the fire pit both nights, and sat out on the dock that looks over the lake and chilled as the sun set. I couldn't think of a more perfect little weekend getaway with friends than what this trip turned out to be. Without a doubt a great experience for friends, families, and/or couples.

Enjoyable Adventure with nature

  • 4 of 5

We loved the peace and quiet, after spending a couple days in the city. We sat on the dock and enjoyed the quiet and tons of nature. We saw many different species of birds. We also loved the salt springs nearby, and all the trails. The marina was close by to rent a pontoon and go out with the manatee's. We will definitely go back someday. There was no phone reception, but we did not mind that. The owner was very accommodating, and we very much appreciated that.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and I stayed here on a recent trip to FL. It was great. It was quiet and comfortable which is exactly what we were looking for. I just wish we could have had more time to explore Ocala National Forest and Salt Springs. I would not recommend this place if you are a slave to your phone. Reception is, for the most part, non-existent. But if complete freedom from calls, texts, and emails sounds appealing, look no further.
