A jewel of a spot!
This was a great location. It’s sits on a great spot on the river. Lots of wild life and very private. The home has great character and the owner was very welcoming and informative. He went the extra mile to ensure our stay was nothing less then spectacular. My in laws live in the area and we have visited for years not knowing this area was a “thing”. We will definitely be coming back to the area and staying here again! Thanks.
Pictures do not do this property justice.
Absolutely beautiful property. Jim was a wonderful host. We celebrated my sons first birthday. He and his daddy were able to catch so many little fish of the dock. We will definitely return when the weather is a little warmer and float the river. Just perfect. Thanks again, Jim!
Wonderful, comfortable, scenic and relaxing
Our stay at the Rainbow Riverfront cabin on the Rainbow River was excellent. We found the cabin to be clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed to have a relaxing weekend. Jim was easy to communicate with and he gave us some good recommendations on places to eat and things to see in the Dunnellon area. The Rainbow River is absolutely beautiful. It is easy to kayak, canoe, or paddleboard up or down the river. Jim provided several kayaks and a canoe for our use. The grounds of this property are very pretty with oaks, pines, cypress, azaleas and other beautiful plants. During our stay we saw several deer, otter, and numerous birds along the river. There is a covered cabana, two docks, a hammock and lounge chairs on the property to make relaxing easy. We hope to visit again soon. Highly recommended.
Very nice place Owner was extremely helpful
Beautiful river view and a relaxing atmosphere
We really enjoyed our stay. The views of the river and grounds from the house were wonderful. The clear sparkling water of the river was amazing, we were able to watch an otter play by the dock, the bass swimming by, and so many water birds in the trees, the water, on the dock, and in the yard. We were also visited by a group of deer in the yard on our last night. Being up high on the hill and on the second floor was like being in a tree house with all the big oaks in the yard, and it was wonderful to wake up every morning to the river view. It was a really relaxing atmosphere for us, and the hammock was a bonus . Our host was just terrific. Jim ensured we arrived safely and gave us a tour of the home and the grounds and the equipment he had available to enjoy in the river. He topped it off by taking us on a boat ride up the river which was just beautiful. He is a terrific host who knows the area well, is able to give lots of information on places to visit and eat, and made sure we had what we needed to enjoy our stay.
Beautiful property right on Rainbow river
Beautiful property right on Rainbow River. Awesome views! I could sit on the deck by the water for hours just observing nature. Great place to just get away from it all. Thank you Jim for all the recommendations in town & history of the area.
