River retreat was a dog friendly heaven.
My family and I had a wonderful time staying here over Thanksgiving. House was roomy, comfortable, and tidy. Had everything we needed. Our two small dogs were very happy and comfortable and we loved having a fenced in backyard so we didn't have to worry too much about them while enjoying backyard. Being on the river was AMAZING. Sitting on the deck, in the screened in outdoor area, around the fire pit at night - just a stunning, serene backyard right on the water with gorgeous cypress trees all around. We kayaked and canoed from the backyard with the ones provided. Calm easy waters to navigate with no other people on the water when we were. We also visited Rainbow Springs State Park where we walked the trails with our dogs and swam in the crystal blue waters (not with our dogs). A great vacation home in a wonderful location. Highly recommend.
Emily I am glad you and your family and dogs enjoyed your stay over the thanksgiving holiday. It is such a beautiful area and so much to enjoy there. I welcome you and your family and dogs back in the future.
Charming home on the river
We absolutely adored this home! My favorite spot is the screened in room by the river. So peaceful. Being able to put our kayaks in from the properties private spot was perfect. We paddled and explored and continually found beauty at every turn. The home has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing vacation in one of nature’s most beautiful places.
Aaron I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay and got to enjoy all the beauty that this area has to offer. I hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future.
We had an outstanding stay at Donna’s house in the Withlacoochee River!
From the moment we stepped into Donna’s lovely Riverside home, we felt welcomed! The wood floors and beautiful decor made everything cozy and warm, and everything was clean all nd inviting! As if this wasn’t enough, the wonderful screened-in room next to the dock and the dock itself sitting right on the river was magnificent! During our 4 day stay, we spent every possible moment on the dock savoring this beautiful and peaceful Setting! The kitchen was well equipped too, So we made most of our meals there, and simply enjoyed eating them on the dock, where we had the nature preserve across the river all to ourselves. We even utilized the gas grill, and the fire pit twice! We also managed a couple of trips to rainbow River Park, which was truly gorgeous and only 20 minutes away. There, we hiked one day,and the other day we canoed on Rainbow River. By the end of our stay, we felt completely at home. Now, we can’t wait to come back for another visit! Thank you Donna for sharing your beautiful home with us!
Roland I am so glad you had such a great stay and were able to enjoy all the amenities and beauty of this wonderful area. I hope to have another opportunity to host you and your wife again.

We would definitely stay here again and again. It's the perfect getaway place for us!!!!
Marlene I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and everything you needed was provided. I hope to host you again in the near future.
the property was very neat and clean. We were very impressed on how well stocked everything was. I was also excited that the major park we wanted to attend was only a short distance away. I have already told a few friends that are looking for a place to stay not to far from home. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
