Property description

Come to beautiful Citrus County! Rent a boat or bring your own and enjoy sunny days and sparkling waters. Experience scalloping in the Gulf! Go tubing down a crystal clear river, kayak or swim with the manatees!! Bring your bicycle or use ours to travel through parks, natural areas, and small unique towns on the Withlacoochee State Trail, which is only 3 blocks from the cottage. Inverness is near the center of the trail which is a paved 46 mile path. Stay in our quaint cottage one block from Lake Henderson where you will find some of the best fishing in Florida or use our canoe for a fun outing on the lake.
Escape to our small town, where you do not have to fight the traffic or wait in long lines at restaurants. At the cottage you will be within blocks from the trail, lake, park, restaurants, shopping and farmers market. The public pool is only 5 minutes away at Whispering Pines Park where they also have tennis courts, racket ball courts and miles of walking and biking trails.
Inverness is the perfect place to stay in Florida where you can get away for the day and see the Orlando theme parks, Tarpon Springs sponge docks, Crystal River Manatees, and wide white beaches.
We have plenty of festivals to keep you busy! The nearby Strawberry Festival is the first weekend in March. Bikes and BBQ in quaint Floral City is the First Sat in October or step back in time and come to Heritage Days the first weekend in December. At the cottage, canoes, bicycles, and fishing gear are provided! Whether you like to sit on the front porch in the rocker or venture out and do things you've never done, Inverness is the place for you! IF THIS COTTAGE IS NOT AVAILABLE ON THE DATES YOU NEED I HAVE OTHERS THAT MAY BE.

The 'Nature Coast' of Citrus county has many activities. The 46 mile Withlacoochee Trail runs through the area where you can walk, bike and horseback ride down the trail. Inverness is near the center of the trail. We have several large lakes, and many rivers. You can fish, canoe and kayak many different waters. Citrus County is the only place in the world that you can swim with the Manatees. Also in the area you will find air boat rides, scalloping, a great auction house, art gallery with cafe, Historic Courthouse Museum, Heritage Hall Museum,putt putt golf, jet ski on the river out to the Gulf of Mexico and much more!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We moved to Citrus County in 2007 because we love the 'magic' in this area. With all the lakes and springs here, there is never a shortage of things to do! Inverness is the perfect small town with many opportunities for fun or relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Inverness:
We bought the cottage because it is close to the Withlacoochee Bicycle/walking trail and Lake Henderson.
