Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Ranch-Style Country Home On Beautiful Wooded One-Acre Lot.

The Norwood, a smoke-free home, is comfortable 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 is large enough to include a crib or playpen. The Norwood sleeps 8 comfortably. 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.

There are plenty of opportunities to see and experience what country living has to offer. If you choose an equine experience, Soquili Stables is a 5 minute walk. Learn what it is like to take care of 19 horses on a daily basis. Or, go for a guided trail ride. 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."

Tree Top Adventure is walking distance as well if you would like to experience an aerial adventure. For additional information about Tree Top Adventure and Soquili Stables visit online at: faithhavencrc.org. You will also find contact phone numbers there as well.

This is a cozy house that is perfect for a family or extended family. It is great to be able to cook meals on premises and hang out there. Nice grounds. Close to everything we wanted to do in the Crystal Springs area.

A back door should be added to the property! (only a screen door right now)

We loved the zip line/obstacle course feature up the road and wish we had had time to ride horses, too.

Great vacation for my wife and I, also our two dogs .we stayed for seven days and it was just fun!!

  • 4 of 5

Cozy home, we went to the Rodeo in Lake City FL before we started to rent the house so we were on the lazy side plus we drove down from NH and this was our first house renting experience instead of hotel motels. Myself and my wife feel this is the only way to go. The house is big enough for six kids and a mom and dad easy. We didn't chose this home for the ocean we wanted to do FL. Great Springs something we have enjoyed in the past . The house is set back on a dirt road away from the sounds of traffic so you can get that country feeling. In the evening we would sit on the rear screened porch and enjoy the sounds of nothing but silence. I was able to let my two dog's of leash and the area has plenty of walking areas and a field to play ball with my dogs. We will rent again from Miss Diane I am on line looking for this year's rental for March .We are looking in the east coast area some place to relax like we did at this home . We will be renting again with Miss Diane. I just love renting versus Motel Hotels so much better and relaxing. The house is a comfortable home not so fancy just comfy and relaxing. I hope this helps you because this is my second time I am going to be renting I Hope all goes well for us again. I just want to find a place to kick back and enjoy our life. Good luck and enjoy if you are thinking about going this way.

Very Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

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.

Country living at its best

  • 5 of 5

Great home to "get away" from the daily hustle. Quiet, peaceful, safe. Owners go over and above to accomodate you.

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.
