Dunnellon cottage description

Whether you're looking for a cozy and tranquil retreat or the perfect spot to launch an adventure, this is the place for you! This adorable 2 bedroom, l bath home right on the river, plus a convenient outdoor shower, is nestled among majestic cypress, pine and oak trees and boasts 100 feet of pristine Rainbow River frontage.

Relax and unwind with your favorite beverage on our large, private dock with panoramic vistas of the river and its variety of wildlife. On any given day you may spot playful otters, turtles, or a vast array of birds, including cormorants, wood ducks, hawks, great blue herons, anhingas and many others.

Scolloping season around here is July 1 – September 24. There is plenty of room for your trailered boat in the back yard.

Situated mid-way between the headwaters of Rainbow Springs and the confluence of the Rainbow (6 miles of clear water) and Withlacoochee (the Bass Capital of the World) Rivers, this location is perfect for watching or participating in just about any water sport you can imagine: kayaking, tubing, boating, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, etc. Your rental includes access to our kayaks, inner tubes and canoe. There is also a volleyball/badminton net in the spacious front yard and a fire pit for gathering on chilly fall and winter days.

Accommodations upstairs include a queen bedroom, a full kitchen, living room/dining room combo, bathroom and screened porch. Downstairs is a queen bedroom, a single bed, large screened patio, outdoor shower and laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer. There is a second refrigerator downstairs. Home comfortably sleeps 6 including sofa in living room. A queen air mattress is available upon request for a small additional charge.
In addition to all the local activities, shops and dining options in historic Dunnellon, there are many nearby attractions conveniently located to this area: The Gulf of Mexico is 20-30 minutes away if you enjoy salt water fishing, boating or diving; nearby Crystal River is a premier dive location and is known for its plentiful manatees; Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators, has an abundance of restaurants and cultural activities and is within 45 minutes; there is a popular biking trail nearby which connects all the way to Tampa; Disney and other Orlando attractions are only about an hour and a half away!
