cozy, felt like home, nice quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this place justice, it's beautiful! Spent time on the lake in the canoe and kayaks. Had everything we needed right there. Owners very helpful with giving info on local things. So much more relaxing than in any hotel! Definately would like to stay here again. It was worth every penny! Quiet and friendly neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thanks Autumn i thought you were a real trooper riding out Hurricane Irma and loss of power for a week. Thank God for generators and portable air conditioners. It was a pleasure meeting your Mom and Dad. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Second time and plan to return annually

  • 5 of 5

This a beautiful house in a beautiful location, somewhat remote but works for our trips to the springs. It is so beautiful to look out to the lake each morning. The white lotus were open and made it even more spectacular. The springs seem to be all about 1 hour away, our favorite is Itcheetucknee, we also visited Rainbow this year and Silver last year. Staying here makes it very cost effective for the 8 of us. Be careful and keep shoes on at all times, I did get bit by a baby scorpion as I was bare feet, nothing happened but just wanted all to be aware. I always give a large deposit to avoid insurance fee, so I would definitely feel more comfortable if someone checked on immediately on exit or shortly reception is sporadic in the area. The owner is wonderful and I sincerely recommend this place. There are two ways to enter, GPS takes you through the less populated part....but there is another side to enter which is much more populated. Try to arrive daytime and take some groceries etc as you would have to drive out to get stuff. The house has everything, even toilet paper, napkins, extra sodas, life jackets, detergent and some spices, perhaps from past renters soap or shampoo though. It is an extremely comfortable and roomy house. You will not regret it.
