Rivers Edge Retreat is a private oasis located on the Withlacoochie river in citrus county florida. Great location to enjoy all the nature coast has to offer. Short distance to Ocala, Inverness, Homosassa Springs, Crystal River, and Dunnellon. Come and experience swimming with the manatees, tubing down the Rainbow River, scalloping in Homosassa and Crystal River, fishing on the withlacoochie and lake rousau, bike riding and hiking, kayaking on the rivers, horseback riding, and Golfing. So much to do or just do nothing at all but enjoy and relax. My home offers you the perfect place to enjoy the privacy, sitting on the dock or in the screen room enjoying all of nature. You can bring your own boat and tie up to the dock or enjoy the use of two kayaks available for your use. At night you can sit around the fire pit and listen to nature sing. Grill your catch of the day on the provided gas grill and eat on the deck under the stars. The backyard is completely fenced and has two beautiful old oaks with huge staghorn ferns offering you plenty of shade. There are many bird feeders so you can enjoy watching many varieties of birds as they come and go. If you choose to take day trips we are located close to Orlando with all of it's attractions and Tampa which is home to Bush Gardens. If you love to eat out our area offers some of the finest seafood in Florida. We have numerous festivals throughout the year celebrating our pioneer and Indian history and seafood festivals allowing you to taste all the local foods. I love this area of Florida for it's beauty and laid back lifestyle. So come and enjoy, relax, unwind, in what Florida once looked like.

About Donna Coleman
I was born and raised in Florida but now reside in Tennessee.
Donna Coleman purchased this House in 2017
Why Donna Coleman chose Dunnellon
We bought this property in citrus county on the river because of my love of nature . The withlacoochie river is a nature and bird lovers paradise. I love kayaking and boating on the river and photographing the wildlife along the river.
What makes this House unique
My home has a secluded backyard that lets you sit on the dock or in the screen room and enjoy nature. I have many bird feeders that let you enjoy the birds as they come and go. You can go kayaking or boating right from the property or throw out a fishing line from the dock. This property is so peaceful it allows you to relax and unwind and enjoy nature without ever leaving the house.

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.
Tranquil riverfront bliss
Very quiet and well kept home. River access was fantastic. Really enjoyed the screened outdoor building at night. Would highly recommend if tranquility is your goal.
Gary I am glad you enjoyed your stay and you were able to relax and unwind.
Wonderful stay! Quiet and relaxing! Close to Rainbow Springs. Will never stay at a hotel again! And will definitely come back!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you in the future.
A wonderful vacation property!
From the moment I walked through the front door, it felt like home. It was much more than I expected! There was more than enough stocked goods in the house (Donna, the owner, thought of everything). Donna was fast to reply on any inquiries that I had. I have lived in the area before, so I knew what to expect for things to do. On this trip I brought along my Daughter, Son in Law, and my two grandchildren. The kids (and the adults) had a blast on the river. The neighbors were fantastic and helpful. The Lanai was great for quiet evenings just sitting and relaxing. It's close enough to everything you need, but yet far enough away from all of the hustle and bustle of city life. The house is very clean, well kept and very comfortable. When traveling it sometimes is hard to get a good night's sleep in an unfamiliar bed, but not here! Like I said at the beginning, it felt like home. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, but then again maybe I wouldn't because I would like to keep a secret and have it all to myself! I am looking forward to renting this property again for next year's vacation. I absolutely loved it! Thank you Donna!!
Thank You Joe for the review. I am glad you enjoyed my home and all it"s amenities. You and your family are always welcome and I hope to get the opportunity to host you in the future.
my wife and daughter arrived to find a home full of charm, very clean and with everything we needed. We took several river trips and noted the fish are coming back. My wife and daughter caught a lot of red breast bream from the dock out back. We also met a fellow that lives a few hundred yards down stream and he took us on boat trips. Ate some very good sea food at peck's in ozello and crystal river seafood in Inverness . A great time was had by all. We would recommend this location and home to anyone . 5 stars
John I am so glad you got to enjoy the river and fish. Enjoyed hosting you and your family and if you don’t buy a place I hope you will return.
Restful, relaxing, riverfront oasis
We stayed at the Riverside home for the month of February (2018). We were extremely pleased with this Dunnellon beauty, on many fronts. The house was nicely and comfortably decorated and extremely clean, equipped with EVERYTHING, in a great setting, and convenient to the town of Dunnellon as well as the "box stores" on route 200. We were within a few-several miles of six or seven hiking trails, too.
The owner, Donna, was quick to respond with questions or requests. When the AC wasn't working, we tried to fix it ourselves. When we couldn't, we contacted Donna and she immediately had a repairman contact us. Before he was to come to the house, it was again working (apparently moisture in the lines) and we texted Donna that we didn't think the work was necessary. She said she would feel better if he came out and she would know that it was going to work. Wow. Rather than save a few bucks, she was interested in making sure our comfort was confirmed.
When we have rented homes in the past, we have brought our own spices, cleaning supplies, etc. Here, there were spices, a sweeper, brooms, Swiffers, extra towels, great sheets, and every imaginable kitchen appliance and gadget. Very well stocked home.
The outdoor space is also great: a deck on the river, a nice yard, and a screened-in gazebo. About the only complaint is that it appears that the prior renter used up the fire wood for the fire pit.
We would definitely stay at this home again.
Thanks Greg and Jan. I am glad you had a wonderful stay and look forward to hosting you both again if you return to the Dunnellon area.
