Located at the southern tip of Ocala National Forest, there are hunting, fishing, 100 miles of horseback riding trails and 100 miles of ATV and Off Road Vehicle trails. J&B Horsehaven is nearby for horse rentals; or you can bring your own.

Fishing, boating and boat rentals on the Harris Chain of Lakes and the Ocklawaha River are available from Nelsons Outdoor Resort. Nelsons also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 6am to 8 pm daily. Paintball is to the north at Old River Paintball.

Just 10 miles to the west is The Villages where there are 38+ golf courses, restaurants & shopping (chain and mom & pop), a hospital, clinics and every kind of doctor you could want. Antiquing is available at Mt Dora, Eustis, Leesburg and other neighboring towns. To the north is Silver Springs with glass bottom boats, water park and live outdoor concerts.

Other Amenities

  • Rustic Cabin, the rustic cabin played a major role in the folklore and culture of central Florida. Early settlers had to build their homes using locally available materials. They also had to be sturdy so would stand in a storm. (Our homes are built to withstand hurricane force winds). They had to go up quickly so they could provide shelter from the elements and protection from local Indian attacks (just kidding again…most of us are the friendly type). Steeped in the rich history of past centuries, this cabin emulates the look and feel of a time when the pace of life was a lot slower and the folk very cordial. ...moreless

Year Purchased: 2007

About: I am from Maryland and my wife from New Hampshire we both love the outdoors. We live in Apopka and have four grown children and five grand kids. we attend church at Journey Christian and volunteer for the Bread of Life and Wealth Insights for Local Landlords.

Why Spanish Springs:
Located on the river at Nelsons Outdoor Resort, just around the bend is Lake Griffin where there is some of the best bass fishing in the area. To the north smooth water for Kayaking. A stones throw away is Sunnyhill with hiking, biking, bird watching and enjoying nature and fresh air. Two miles to the east is horseback riding and 10 miles west The Villages where there is nightly entertainment, restaurants, shopping, churches, medical facilities, and 38 golf courses.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Staying in this home you will notice the stars (no city lights), the quiet (no traffic) and leave your cell phones and lap tops at home and really experience the magic moments of the outdoors. If you need to connect there is WI-FI. A full kitchen with Granite counters, stove, full size frig, dishwasher and double SS sink will assist you in preparing your favorite dishes. Nelsons has two boat ramps, boat rental, kayak rentals, a 50 boat marina and camping and full hook up RV spots. or book a guided air boat tour on the river. To the northwest is 300,000+ acres of Ocala National Forest. Here there is hunting, fishing, horseback and ATV riding. One of the most unique aspects of this home is the location. in the woods near the lakes and just over an hour to the beach or a theme park like Disney, Seaworld, lego land or Universal.
