Totally charming and well-maintained, this cozy cottage is in a wonderful lakefront setting with 300 feet of shoreline outside your door. With a substantial dock, clean beach, and a concrete boat ramp, you can enjoy this spring-fed natural lake.
The cottage's interior boasts hand-finished tongue and groove pine paneling, and every room has a view of Miles Kale Lake!! A breezy screened porch overlooks this special place as well. This sand-bottom lake is clean and wonderful for fishing, swimming, and boating. Our whole family learned to ski here.
Exactly half-way between Ocala and Gainesville, you can be in either city or Palatka in 30 minutes for dining, shopping, entertainment, cultural events, or health care. Or, drive 55 minutes to Daytona Beach, or less than 2 hours to Disney attractions. This serene setting is for those who like to be close to nature with the advantages of cities nearby.

We loved the little brown cabin!
We absolutely loved our stay at the little brown cabin! It is so cozy and we felt like we were staying at a friend's house. It had everything we needed for a long weekend. The backyard and the dock on the lake are just beautiful. We enjoyed the fire pit at night and our boxer dog loved the fenced in yard. Ed, the owner, is very helpful. He provided directions to the property as well as ideas of things to do in the area. There is another house on the property that would make a great way to have a family vacation by renting both homes. We will certainly be back! Thank you for everything!
A true hidden gem !!
Loved the setting, loved the place, and most of all loved my memories.. the house and environment was perfect.
The best cabin I have found in Florida.
As soon as I walked into the cabin I felt like home!!Coming from W.Va. the atmosphere of the woods and the homey cabin was just what we needed and everything was clean and comfortable.Getting away ftom traffic and noise was a plus also avery serene atmosphere.Lila&Tom Cason

Away from the noise
This cabin was the perfect spot. Right in the middle of Gainesville and Ocala, this place was a wonderful escape to enjoy some peace and quiet. Would definitely stay again.
