Property description

Located on little ‘Blue Cove’ adjacent to the beautiful Rainbow River you can relax and enjoy the view from your private dock or screened lanai. You’ll find everything you need to make yourself comfortable and have lots of fun.

The famous Rainbow River is a designated Florida Outstanding Waterway and Aquatic Preserve. Visit the Rainbow Springs State Park at the crystal clear, spring-fed head waters. Take a relaxing boat trip or swim, float, snorkel, dive or fish out your back door. Photograph turtles, herons, ducks, otters and perhaps an elusive alligator in their natural habitat. Diving excursions in the crystal clear waters and kayak rental are available nearby. Experienced boaters can enjoy a pontoon boat ride up the river for a small additional charge.

Enjoy a walk around the friendly neighborhood or enjoy Historic/Antique shops and great food in downtown Dunnellon, the Bass Fishing Capital of Florida! The cities of Ocala and Crystal River and all they have to offer are an easy drive.

You’ll be conveniently located 90 minutes North of Orlando and Tampa airports and Theme parks. Go Saltwater fishing in the Gulf of Mexico (20 min. away) and visit World Famous Daytona Beach (approx. 90 min.) Golf Courses available in the area are Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club, Citrus Springs Golf & Country Club, El Diablo Golf Course and the new, beautiful Juliette Falls Golf Course.

Enjoy all the best Florida has to offer in beautiful 'Blue Cove'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: My husband and I both grew up in central Florida (Ocala) and we both love all types of water activities. He is an avid fisherman and taught me to love it also. I grew up swimming in nearby lakes or vacationing in Daytona Beach. I never dreamed we'd own a piece of waterfront property but I think he always had that as one of his goals!

Why the Owner Chose Dunnellon:
We purchased our property and built our house to enjoy the beautiful waterfront and still be close to our business and family. We also enjoy fishing in the Gulf and this brought us closer to the West coast of Florida. All of our friends and guests loved to visit us at 'Blue Cove'! While we still thoroughly enjoy all water activities it became necessary for us to move back to Ocala where we grew up. Sharing our home gives us the opportunity to continue these activities and allow others to enjoy the outstanding beauty of 'Blue Cove' and the Rainbow River.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy coffee on the dock or back porch watching the fog lift off the water, or take an exhilarating swim after a walk or bike ride through the neighborhood. You can also enjoy the view from the kitchen and most other rooms in the house! Bring your favorite sheet music and play the piano. There's 2 new waterfront restaurants, one within walking distance. The Rainbow Springs State Park is very inexpensive and beautiful and you can take guided hikes/birding/canoe trips at various times throughout the year. A 'tubing' trip down the river is a unique experience!
