Property description

This secluded cottage is located directly on the Withlacoochee River, designated an 'Outstanding Florida Waterway'. Our newly renovated cottage features a large well stocked kitchen, dining and living areas with cathedral ceiling, and two cozy bedrooms. The screened porch is just feet from the river complete with palm trees and old cypress.

A nature lovers paradise where you can view manatees, otters, turtles, many varieties of birds, and an occasional alligator or dolphin. Bring your boat and cruise down the scenic river to the Gulf of Mexico. There is plenty of room to park your trailer or RV. Swim in the river or adjacent lagoon where you might encounter a napping manatee, or use our kayaks or canoe to paddle back to 'Old Florida'. Fish from the private dock or during season, harvest scallops in near by Crystal River

The perfect place to get away from it all, but close enough to enjoy a day trip to Tampa Bay, or several Florida attractions like Silver Springs, Homosassa Springs, or Weeki Wachee. Walking, bike, and equestrian trails are minutes away at the Cross Florida Greenway where you will also find a boat ramp to the Gulf of Mexico. Antique shops, golfing, and spas are located nearby. Beautiful Lake Rousseau is minutes away with some of the best bass fishing in the area. Watch mullet or tarpon jumping directly from the dock located at the cottage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We purchased our riverfront property next door in 2005. We love the quiet and secluded setting and find it relaxing just watching the river flow by. We enjoy watching all the wildlife, kayaking, and boating on the river and the gulf. The lagoon separating the property is a favorite spot for manatee to rest and birds to fish. We purchased the cottage in 2009 so we could share this little piece of paradise with family and friends. We hope you enjoy all 'The Nature Coast' has to offer.
