Great location in a country-like setting but less than a few miles to local grocery store, gas station, Dollar General-they have practically everything, Subway and more. Walmart is about 5 miles away and town is just a tad further. The house is on a dead end street that ends at the water on a corner lot w/intersecting canals. Canal leads to Chassahowitzka River and 7 Sisters Springs is close to the house via the canal and at the entrance to the river. It has a full yard with 2 docks both have lower docks off main docks to access kayaks/canoe, a small boathouse (only half of boathouse comes with house) and comes w/2 kayaks to save you renting them but if you need more, rentals are only a few blocks away. Make sure you bring or wear life jackets as they are required by law. Life jackets are located in screened in room off back of house. See pics of 12' culvert that boats must traverse to from house to river-there is a map in the house on how to get to river. 2 bedrooms, 1 with 3 twin beds, the other has a King canopy bed. Master bedroom has full bath with a garden style tub/shower combo. Fully stocked kitchen w/everything you need-all the dishes/pots-n-pans, silverware, glasses, etc. Sleeps 7 with 3 in twin bedroom 2 in master bedroom, 1 on a pull out loveseat in the living room and 1 on the sofa. If you have more than 7, there is a 4" foam pad and another foam pad in the master bedroom closet with extra bedding to accommodate them comfortably on the floor.
Fast Wi-Fi and cable TV in living room and both bedrooms, and dvd player in bunk bedroom so you can always play a movie, some dvd's provided in home.
If you bring a boat, other than a canoe or kayak or anything you can't carry, you will need to put it in at the boat launch and in order to bring it back to the house, you will need to be able to fit thru the 12" culvert. Water is shallow, especially at low tide. Pontoons that are not deck boats usually fit, you have to lower the top, lower the fishing rods and bimini tops. The pics show the passage. Most boats can put in 4 blocks away at the Chassahowitzka River Campground launch, larger boats can put in at McRae's on Halls River Road on the Homosassa River. There is room to store your boat and trailer at the house on the property. Hope that helps. Call the Chassahowitzka River Campground if you have questions regarding boats on the river.
The Seven Sisters Springs is on your right as you come out of the canals at the beginning of the river. It is really beautiful and truly "Old Florida" setting. Great place to park the kayaks and swim in the crystal clear spring water. Some of the springs connect and you can swim through them and come up in the next spring. The river is shallow and runs about 5 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful serene views the entire way with lots of wildlife and nature to see.
