Property description

Old Homosassa is a quaint Florida Village on Florida's Nature Coast located 60 miles north of the Tampa Airport. The area is known for the spring fed Homosassa River, Halls River, and Mason Creek, which leads into Homosassa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The area's waterways are home to a large diversity of wildlife including manatees, river otters, porpoise, and many species of birds, fish and shell fish native to the west coast of Florida.

Old Homosassa still retains the charm of a river village setting with riverfront restaurants, art galleries, fresh seafood shops, and of course a few old time honky tonks for evening entertainment.

The Terrace House is centrally located in the village of Old Homosassa; a leisurely 10 minute walk on the bike path to the village waterfront activities; McRay's Tiki Bar and launch ramp; art galleries and other waterfront eateries.
