Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Retired, travel enthusiast, nature lover. After living 2 yrs on an offshore island in the FL Keys without utilities, I decided to venture back to civilization, but still wanted the seclusion of a rural setting. I bought this cabin, which was previously a corporate hunting lodge, and updated it in early 2013. I now spend half my time here and rent it for others to enjoy when I am traveling.

Why the Owner Chose Heritage Bay:
A great place to reconnect with nature, yet close to whatever interests you. Its like camping out, but with all the luxuries and convienences of a world class resort!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Quiet, private, secluded... But yet close to all the action. Abundant wildlife, frequent sightings of deer, wild hogs, turkey, and an occasional black bear. A comfortable experience in a Florida Nature Preserve.
