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. Go for a guided trail ride or take riding lessons. 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: You will also find contact phone numbers there as well.

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

Reminded me of my uncle's home we would spend summers at as kids. It was nice to be able to spread out and relax during our stay. We hope to be able to rent this place again! Scott was wonderful!

A Really Cozy Country home!

  • 5 of 5

It is exactly like the pictures. If you know that you are looking for a total relax, not another noise that the ducks flying and quacking, some birds, this is the place. The cleanness is 5 stars, the smell of the house, the kitchen, and every room is just as expected. We spent Thanksgiving and we will never forget this special one, with grandma, my daughter, our dogs, and my husband enjoying nature. My daughter and husband had a blast at the Tree Top Zip Line Park, just in walking distance, or riding the ATV. Scott and Diane were very attentive, with even tips were to go. The recommendations were great, Scott told us to go to Peck's Old Port Cove, a seafood Restaurant, famous as a Blue Crab Farm, the food was amazing and the view was a top!. They have plenty of table games, we enjoy Monopoly , and UNO. Thank you Scott and Diane for everything! you have a hidden treasure that others can enjoy!

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.

Crystal River is the only place in the U.S. where you can swim with manatees in their natural environment. Crystal River and Homosassa are local areas for scalloping. Crystal River has been identified as one of the best fishing destinations in the United States. The Norwood has plenty of parking for your boat as well as the means to clean/flush your boat daily. Enjoy the clear crisp waters of Hunters Spring in the heat of the day; swim, canoe, kayak, or float. Or, participate in the thrill of an aerial adventure at Tree Top Adventure.

Tree Top Adventure has 24 elevated elements and 7 zip lines. Build your self confidence, challenge yourself. Wonderful outdoor activity for one and all. Great family fun! Only a short walking distance from the Norwood.

If your heart's desire is to be with horses, Soquili Stables is walking distance as well. They offer trail rides and private lessons. Most of the horses are involved in equine assisted therapy as well. "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." (Winston Churchill)

Visit: faithhavencrc.org for more information about Tree Top and Soquili Stables.

Antiquing in the quaint downtown neighborhood of Dunnellon is always good for a limitless stroll. Heritage Village in Crystal River is one of the U.S. Main Street rehabilitation projects providing local shops and restaurants.
