Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Ocklawaha

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Peaceful living in the Ocala National Forest, a perfect place to relax from the craziness of everyday life. Plenty of room for the whole family. Three large bedrooms with queen sized beds, plus a wheel away cot and blow up mattress for extra guests.

Newly remodeled home with attractive colors and furnishings. Geared toward family fun; a game table with puzzles, board games, and card games. Foosball table for the competitive ones and a DVD player and 45 inch TV with Dish network for those relaxing nights. Fully equipped kitchen with service for 8; with a three seat counter as well as two tables, there is plenty of room to seat the whole family. Roast marshmallows at the fire pit and tell your best scary story.

Central A/C and heat will keep you cool in the summer months and cozy in the winter months. Plenty of yard for outdoor sports (family game of two hand touch football is fun!)

Although you are in the forest, local attractions such as Disney World and other attractions are a short hour and a half ride away. Several natural springs are with in a thirty minute drive. Other activities such as horseback riding, zip lining, mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing, and hiking are located a reasonable distance away. Grocery shopping is 15 minutes away, as well as a well stocked public library that has free WiFi. 40 minutes will get you into Ocala/Silver Springs where you will find ample dining and shopping for your pleasure.

Winter activities include hunting, fishing, Christmas tree cutting, ATV riding-all of which require permits, but are minutes away.

Lifetime memories……

  • 5 of 5

Memorable. Amazing. Peaceful. Fulfilling. Relaxing. Those are just a few words to express what a wonderful time we had at this rental. My family loved the large windows that gave us such beautiful views, spending every night by the fire pit roasting marshmallows, playing all the board games provided, playing ball and enjoying the huge yard! We connected and made unforgettable memories!!! Thank you for sharing your perfectly clean and cozy spot filled with everything we needed! We didn't want to leave.....

Owner's Response: Tania and Shawn, Thank you so much for spending your Thanksgiving with your family at our home. I am so glad you enjoyed your time and enjoyed all the things that my family have enjoyed in the past. I hope you come back again, there is so much more that you need to discover in the area. Next time take some time to explore the fresh water springs, the mountain bike trails and bring your four wheelers for the hundreds of miles of ATV trails in the forest. If you come in May, bring some buckets and fill up on the wild blackberries which is always a hit with the little ones. It's been a pleasure having your family as our guest. Best Regards, Luke

It was the best vacation we've ever had :-)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in ocklawaha and it was a very short drive to silver springs/Ocala...the house we stayed at was beautiful and very well kept! When we go on vacation next year we will definitely try to rent this house again! It was so peaceful and quiet there and every night we watched a movie (provided) and played board games...it was the best vacation rental we've ever stayed at!

Great place to get away for m the hustle and bustle of city life.

  • 5 of 5

A great place to relax and unwind, so peaceful. The house has everything you need for a relaxing stay, plenty of beds, a well equipped kitchen and plenty to do. I spent one afternoon at Silver Springs which is just a short ride away. We went mountain biking, Scalloping at Chrystal River and then just chilled for a while. One of the most relaxing vacations I've had in a while, can't wait to go back.

Our stay in March 2016

  • 4 of 5

Extremely clean well kept place to stay. Enjoyed the views from the back porch. Luke was very helpful in providing local information and his responsiveness to my inquiries was immediate. Lots of things to do from this location within a short drive. Grocery store is 5 minutes away. I would stay there again.

Wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family retreat!

Our family had a fabulous time swimming, sunning & kayaking. Sunny days followed by fun nights by the fire pit made for wonderful memories. Plenty of room for dining indoors & out with great space for game time. Cable & movies in the evenings. Quiet, beautiful, and relaxing. Hope to go again!Wonderful communication with owner Luke fast response and very helpful.

Owner's Response: Maria, It's so nice to see couples getting away from it all to spend quality time with their children. I'm glad you did the kayaking, it sounds like you had a great time. I'm sure there is more to do next time, so please visit us again. Share your experience with your friends and send them our way. Good Luck to you and your family Sincerely, Luke
