Welaka cottage description

Nestled under live oaks, palms and magnolias, on a high bluff overlooking the beautiful St. Johns River, is a slice of paradise, old Florida Style. Catering to the casual and avid fisherman and their families, outdoor enthusiasts, or those just looking for a quiet respite in a beautiful setting, Welaka Lodge and Resort provides luxury cottage accommodations in an old Florida setting. This traditional cottage with lap siding provides you with modern creature comforts. With a fireplace in the great room, front and back covered porches, metal roof, hardwood floors, and tongue and groove pine cathedral ceilings it's hard not to imagine a simpler time. We want you to have the best of both worlds so we've added a kitchen with handmade hickory cabinets, dishwasher and gas stove, refrigerator with icemaker, tile countertops, and a three person spa on the back deck.

Built with an open design, a king size bed with 600 thread count linens are an added luxury. The front porch has a swing for two facing the river and two rockers that overlook the pool. The back porch features an outside dining table and a Jenn Air stainless gas grill and, of course the spa. This adds another 200 plus square feet to the existing 600 of the cottage

We have a total of three cottages available with plans to build nine additional. Please check out our other listings, VRBO #100986, VRBO # 136291, and VRBO #58000. Eleven original boat slips are complimentary on a first come first serve basis. Additionally, we have three new covered boat slips with electric lifts that are available to rent on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis. Two new large uncovered slips accomodate largeer vessels or sailboats. Space fills quickly so make sure to reserve one early!

We are located in the quaint town of Welaka know for its beauty and, of course, its bass fishing. It is so much more than that! A golf cart friendly community, access to the restaurants, parks, neighborhood markets, and pubs are just a short cart ride away. You can rent one of ours licensed carts for excursions around town. The Ocala National Forest is across the river as is the Ocklawaha River, a pristine environment that takes you back in time. Live Oak Golf and Country Club is a semi private course less than four miles away. Juniper Springs, Salt Springs, Silver Glen Springs, Favre Dykes State Park, Washington Oaks State Gardens, Historical St. Augustine and it's beaches, Rodman Reservoir, and Ravine Gardens are all within close driving or boating distance.

Opportunities for recreation abound. The Ocala National Forest is across the river, as is the Ocklawaha River, a pristine environment that takes you back in time and also gives you your best chance to see an alligator. Take your boat out and explore, or rent or charter one of ours, it is an opportunity not to be missed. Silver Glen Springs and Salt Springs are located off Lake George and are a great day trip by boat. You can also take the oldest operating ferry in Florida across the river just south and into the town of Salt Springs.

Heading south you'll come to Juniper Springs and Run, excellent for canoeing and kayaking, and Silver Glen Springs. Being in the Ocala National Forest, you'll have access to many trails including the Florida Trail which, when completed, will extend from the southern tip of Florida into the panhandle, eventually connecting to the Appalachian Trail. Hiking trails in the Welaka Forest just south of town provide an up close way to see nature and allow you access to a secret spring. Strong paddlers can access it by water. Of course, for many, fishing from the dock or their boat will provide all the entertainment they desire. And for others a dip in the pool followed by a beautiful sunset will be their respite. Let us host your event. With the amenities provided we are an ideal location for family reunions, corporate retreats, and wedding parties.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My husband Kevin and I purchased an old fish camp in 2004. It was called Wolfe's Camp. We loved the location, sunsets were beautiful, but the property was dilapidated and housed many run down mobile homes, many abandoned. Gradually, we begin restoring the place. Mobile homes were removed or dismantled. City water and sewer were added as well as underground utilities. We remodeled the existing cottages, and began construction on the pool and bath house. An office and laundry facility was also added. In 2006 we completed another cottage. 2008 brought us to the completion of our dockside bar and grill and our fourth cottage. Welaka is a beautiful place and one we love! This has been a labor of love for us and we hope to be here for many years to come, adding slowly and improving our place!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Welaka is Old Florida. We have no shopping malls, multiplexes or even a fast food restaurant. What we do have are friendly residents, one stop light, beautiful views, great fishing, quiet relaxation, and the promise of good times with friends and family!
