Property description

(This home is located in the quaint fishing village of Yankeetown, 11 miles north of Crystal River)
After a busy day fishing, visiting the attractions in Orlando, golfing, or any of the other many close by activities you will love sitting on the screened-in-porch and watching the shrimping fleet depart for the night or observing the varied wildlife that is always in and around the river or just walking around the 'Olde Florida' town of Yankeetown. When you turn off of Rt 19 for the 4 mile ride to Yankeetown you go back 50 years in Florida.

This is a comfortable privately owned home that has two queen beds and two twins in three bedrooms with 2 full baths. There are two kayaks, and a canoe for your enjoyment. A deep water boat dock with 50amp power and water.

Don't you just hate rental properties that only have the minimum in the kitchen for dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, pots/pans, and kitchen accessories. Then when you want to cook you have to go out and buy the condiments and spices which you end up leaving. Well this home has been our second home for many years so there is an extensive collection of all the above. Not guaranteed, but most of the time there will be all the basic condiments.

You will love sitting on the deck watching the sunset and of course you can still stay in touch with Internet WiFi available. Kayaking the river or one of the many side creeks affords a varied wildlife or bird watching experiences.

We are centrally located to all major Florida attractions such as Disney and Busch Gardens. We are 10 minutes from Crystal River and the Manatees. Fishing here is outstanding. You can fish off the dock or rent a boat to fish the waters of the Withlacoochee River with access to the Gulf of Mexico. Lake Rousseau and the Rainbow River are just minutes away. If horses are your passion Ocala (Horse Capital of the World) is about a 30-minute drive where are some of finest horse farms you will ever see. The Goethe State Forest boasts more than 120 miles of lush forest trails where you can ride, bike, hike, hunt, camp or bird watch. If golfing is your pleasure our area has several top rated golf courses: Golden Ocala, Rainbow Springs, Rainbows End, Juliet Falls, El Diablo, and Black Diamond.
