Property description

Absolutely stunning lakefront home (one of my 3 available to you) sits on 300 feet of shoreline on Miles Kale Lake in northeast Marion County (between Ocala, Gainesville, & Palatka) near Orange Springs, FL. Incredible renovations were recently completed including a fantastic addition. The Great Room of the house, built in 1949, sports beautiful tongue and groove wood paneling and a beamed ceiling. The new addition includes a convenient large gourmet, dine-in kitchen, a spacious laundry/pantry, a new full bath, and a fabulous screened porch overlooking the lake. Large Pella picture windows allow viewing the lake while cooking, dining, and relaxing. This tranquil lake retreat is minutes from the Ocala National Forest, numerous springs, the Ocklawaha River, and the charming towns of McIntosh and Micanopy. The dock is great for fishing and the lake for swimming. Miles Kale Lake is about 40 acres. Check out my other homeaway.com lake places -- listings 117133 and 910353.


Activities & Attractions: Tranquility, views, relaxation; swimming, fishing, boating -- sandy bottom, spring-fed lake; snorkeling in the springs; using nearby rivers (Oklawaha, St. John's); Silver Springs Amusement Center; University of Florida & Central Florida Community College; Ocala Horse Farms; McIntosh 1890's Days; Micanopy artist town; easy drive to either coast (Daytona or Cedar Key); Disney - 2 hours.

The house has new, outstanding mattresses in the bedrooms: a Supplepedic Memory Foam mattress, and a new Serta Pillow-top comfort mattress. The trundle bed in the sleeping alcove makes two twin beds and has two new single regular mattresses.
To accommodate a seventh person, there is a twin mattress under the queen bed in the master BR. It can be moved to the living room.

Other Lake Options: I have two other lake cottages. One is next door on its own acre. It is homeaway listing/Property ID 117133. This allows guests the option of having large groups or reunions close by to enjoy being with one another. I have rented both cottages for this type of gathering many times. Then, on the next lake over, big Island Lake, I have another fabulous home in the woods: homeaway listing/property ID 910353. It is a fantastic 2BR/2BA large redwood cottage with the option of a guest house on the same property. This retreat sleeps up to 9 comfortably. It too has a dock and boat house.

Two of my 3 homeaway.com listings are on Miles Kale Lake next door to each other. Miles Kale is a quiet small lake. On the next lake over is Island Lake on which I have my biggest lake home. See the map. They are within several 'blocks' of one another. Each home has a wooded acre associated with it. Two cottages share 300 feet of shoreline, an excellent dock, and a boat ramp. Miles Kale Lake is about 2 miles from the intersection of Marion County Roads 318 & 315 in Orange Springs, Fl, 32182. This unincorporated community sits on the northwestern edge of the Ocala National Forest and Lake Ocklawaha. The Island Lake house has a gorgeous lot, dock, and shoreline as well.

Other Activities: river kayaking, snorkeling in springs

Golf: There are public golf courses in the three surrounding cities: Ocala, Palatka, and Gainesville.
