Rainbow Springs State Park is a great place to plan a picnic or barbeque. The park offers many activities for people of all ages: canoe & kayak rentals, nature trails, swimming in the springs, tubing down the river, and much more. There is a gift shop, snack bar and pavillions. If you're looking for a restful day of doing nothing much, relax on the back porch with a book and listen to nature. Or sit out on the deck overlooking the Withlacoochee. The view alone is breathtaking. You'll be visited alligators, turtles, anhingas, and ducks. There are many antique & specialty shops nearby such as Grumble's House. Or go out for some home-cookin' at The Front Porch Restaurant. Take a ride on a glass-bottom boat and meet Florida's state fresh water mammal- the manatee at Homassassa State Park. It's only a 20 minute drive from the house.

There are many, many things to do and see while staying in the peaceful town of Dunnellon. Feel free to email me for suggestions that would suit your interests. Make my home on the river your next vacation spot. Tranquility guaranteed!!!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I grew up in the Tampa Bay area so I have a true appreciation for all that Florida has to offer. Since my day-to-day job requires much of my time, I've become an expert at seeking out new and exciting places to explore. My favorite adventures are found off-the-beaten-path and that's exactly what my house in Dunnellon is. My family has made many wondeful memories here. I hope yours will, too!

Why the Owner Chose Dunnellon:
I purchased this home to escape the non-stop business of city life. Whenever I come alone, with family or with friends, my heart melts with the view and my mind settles upon the quietness. It's also fun to spend your days soaking up the sun pontooning down to Rainbow Springs or enjoyng the festivities down at Gator's on the river. But take comfort in knowing where I'll be at the end of the day---my piece of paradise on the river!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is truly your home away from home. Stay a week, 2 weeks or longer. No need to leave Fido at home; bring Fidos pet bed. We are pet-friendly.
