Property description

Totally charming and well-maintained, this cozy cottage is in a wonderful lakefront setting with 300 feet of shoreline outside your door. With a substantial dock, clean beach, and a concrete boat ramp, you can enjoy this spring-fed natural lake.

The cottage's interior boasts hand-finished tongue and groove pine paneling, and every room has a view of Miles Kale Lake!! A breezy screened porch overlooks this special place as well. This sand-bottom lake is clean and wonderful for fishing, swimming, and boating. Our whole family learned to ski here.

Exactly half-way between Ocala and Gainesville, you can be in either city or Palatka in 30 minutes for dining, shopping, entertainment, cultural events, or health care. Or, drive 55 minutes to Daytona Beach, or less than 2 hours to Disney attractions. This serene setting is for those who like to be close to nature with the advantages of cities nearby.

Great summertime place for the family - you commute to Gainesville or Ocala or P


Fantastic winter haven from the frigid north!! Wonderful Central Florida retreat for retired couples or family who are sick of go-go attractions.

Centrally located: this wonderful lake home is centrally located between Ocala, Gainesville, and Palatka, Florida. it is one mile from the intersection of Marion County Roads 318 and 315.

OTHER OPTIONS: I have two other homeawayc.om lakefront properties: Listing/property ID 127321 on the acre next door and Listing/property ID 910353 on the next lake over. Both of these listings are larger homes with many fine amenities as well. All 3 are close in case you wish to have a large group or family reunion.

  • Pets Considered:

    I am pet friendly to well-managed and well-behaved pets. I love animals and have always wanted to travel with my dogs. I encourage my guests to have their 4-legged loved ones on Heartguard and Frontline (or their equivalents) to protect them from ticks, fleas, and Lyme disease which are frequently found in rural Florida year round. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture. When the gates are closed, the property is fenced on three sides. It is not fenced across the lakeside so as not to obstruct views of the lake and to allow easy access for going in and out of the water. Therefore, I stress well managed. It is the guest’s responsibility to manage their pet. A pet could swim around the ends of the fence. Lastly, if the pet is to be left alone, the guest must have a plan to not let them roam inside the house. After a decade of sharing my properties with guests, I have learned to expect them to be more attentive to their pets. ...moreless
