The Norwood is a comfortable home for your family or just the guys looking for a place to stay during their fishing trip. Plenty of room to park your boat or trailer, and we even have an RV hook up. This home has a split plan. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; master bath, shower only. One bedroom has 2 twin beds; the other bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds and has room for a crib. The second bath has a tub and shower. Each bedroom is suited with dressers, allowing you to feel right at home instead of "living out of your suitcase." The living room has a gas fireplace. The open plan of this home allows the warmth of the fire to be felt throughout. Relax on the screened front porch with your morning coffee or watch the sunset behind the trees. Kitchen is fully equipped for your gastronomical cooking delight. Don't want to heat up the kitchen? Need additional cooking space? There is a screened in outdoor kitchen as well. Concerned about laundry? Don't be. The Norwood has a washer and dryer for your convenience.
The Norwood provides the ultimate setting for an intimate, outdoor, country wedding. Imagine the photo opportunities on this beautiful wooded property. Horses are available for your photographs as well. The caterer, photographer, baker, florist, etc. are all of your choosing. Or, maybe, retaining the services of a wedding planner is more your style. We are happy to work with your wedding planner if requested to do so.
There are plenty of opportunities to see and experience what country living has to offer. If you choose a horse experience, Soquili Stables is a 5 minute walk. Learn what it is like to take care of 14 horses on a daily basis. You will never forget the feeling of bonding with a horse. As Winston Churchill stated, "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."
If gardening is of interest to you, your family, or fellow travelers there is plenty of opportunity to experience what it is like to raise your own food. Pick the vegetables in the afternoon that you will be eating for dinner that night. Again, just a short walk away.
Typically when we travel to Crystal River we select one of the rentals on the water. This time we selected the Norwood and were not disappointed. It is set in a very secluded area yet only a short drive to town. We brought our own kayaks and had the pleasure of enjoying all of our favorites, putting in at Hunter Springs or King Bay parks and kayaking with the Manatees, putting in at MacRae's in Homosassa and doing a little sight seeing, and putting in at Ozello and doing a bit of fishing. Not staying on the water actually gave us more access to the water. The screened sitting area was great for relaxing and listening to the birds (the peacocks even came into the yard one day). We only used the master bedroom and the bed was very comfortable. We brought our small dog and had plenty of room to walk him around the yard and down the dirt road. He also enjoyed the screened sitting room! The Norwood has a great selection of books to read if you forget to bring one of your own.
Crystal River is the only place in the U.S. that you can swim with manatees in their natural environment. Crystal River and Homosassa are local areas for scalloping. Enjoy tubing, rafting, or canoeing down Rainbow River. Swim in the clear crisp waters of Hunters Spring in the heat of the day. Antiquing in the quaint downtown neighborhood of Dunnellon. Heritage Village in Crystal River is one of the "U.S. Main Street" rehabilitation projects.
