“Somewhere…” is a beautiful haven on the scenic Rainbow River in Dunnellon, Florida. The home commands a hilltop with a long view to the river below. Just blocks from downtown Dunnellon, Somewhere… feels like miles from everywhere. It is newly decorated with three spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, top of the line appliances, a big open plan living and dining room with a gas fireplace, a separate TV room/den, laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer and two-car garage. Each bedroom overlooks the river and the wall of french doors in the living room opens onto the perfect view. There is a large deck that wraps the river side of the house providing fresh breezes from the spring fed river to the accompaniment of dozens of varieties of birds. There is even a dock on the water.
The master bedroom with en suite bath is furnished with a king bed. One guest room holds a queen and the other is decorated with twins. There are two sofa beds, bringing the sleeping capacity comfortably to ten.
The kitchen is well-appointed with GE Profile and Kitchenaid appliances including a gas range. There is also a gas grill on the deck. Careful attention to detail means you’ll find everything you need to prepare meals here.
The living room/dining room overlooks the large back deck. It is open and airy with french doors and a vaulted ceiling. One of the sleeper sofas is in the living room. The cozy den holds a large TV and Blu-ray player and the other sleeper sofa. Internet and satellite TV are provided.
The Rainbow River is fed by the fourth-largest spring in Florida and pours up to 600 million gallons of crystal clear, ice cold water into the Withlacoochee River daily just downstream from Somewhere…. The Rainbow flows at a constant 74° year-round. It may be a little warmer by the time it gets to Somewhere…, about 5 miles downstream from the spring, but it is always bracingly refreshing. Tubing is the most popular activity on the river and the fishing on both the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers is excellent. Rainbow Springs State Park, at the river’s head spring, is just a few miles away and easily accessible from Highway 41, the main road through town. On the river you’re likely to see otters, turtles, deer, osprey, eagles and the occasional alligator. Local tour operators and rental companies can provide everything your party needs to spend a wonderful day on the water.
Dunnellon is abut 30 minutes from Ocala and Crystal River, and less than 2 hours from Orlando, Tampa and St. Petersburg.
The minimum stay at Somewhere… is seven nights. Pets can be accommodated; contact the owner to discuss.

About Andrea Wilson
Born and raised in Florida, I fell in love with the Rainbow River when a friend who lives upstream invited me to spend a few weekends. These days we live in St. Petersburg and divide our leisure time between Somewhere... and Alamanda by the Gulf, a lovely vacation home in Anna Maria.
Andrea Wilson purchased this House in 2017
Why Andrea Wilson chose Dunnellon
We knew that Somewhere... was the right home the minute we walked in and saw the amazing river views from the open living room and each bedroom. Everything about the property seemed just right and now that we have redecorated, we love it even more.
What makes this House unique
Somewhere... is close to town and the conveniences that it provides yet it is all country living at it's best. We are downstream from the typical tubing take-outs, so it is peaceful and quiet even at the height of the summer vacation season. The house is open and spacious; comfortable for all ages. Additional discount applies to stays of 2 months or longer.

From the minute we pulled into the driveway we knew we made the perfect choice in choosing this property for our Easter Spring Break. We planned this trip with our three boys and another couple with two teenage girls and the house was perfect. It had all the kitchen amenities and grilling supplies, was spacious and had a bunch of puzzles and great games. The back deck overlooking the river was great for morning coffee, afternoon lunch and evening wine. It was close to everything. We brought our kayaks and paddle boards and were able to drop right in and take them up to the local grill Swampy’s. We rented a pontoon boat at The Blue Gator and did the airboat tour which were both grear. We did Zip lining at Tree top adventure about 20 min drive and had such a fun time.
All in all the property was great and so close to everything. We will definitely rent here again.
AMAZING!!! Such a beautiful house and property!
The house was exactly as it looks in the pictures. Walking in the front door and seeing the french doors with the water view is like a slice of heaven. Andrea made sure we had everything we could need too! The location itself is also wonderful. We were able to take day trips no longer than 40 minutes away to Silver Spring, Ziplining in Ocala, swam with manatees at Crystal Springs/Three Sisters Springs, and enjoyed morning walks at Rainbow Springs State Park. We didn't want to leave, and hope to come back again.
As soon as walked in I was shocked to see see the very spacious house and back yard. That was when I knew that this was the perfect home to spend my Christmas/Winter vacation. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed and it was also very close to grocery stores and gas stations. The back yard was the highlight of the house, there’s a beautiful river that you could swim, kayak, and take boat rides in. Overall it was a very peaceful and relaxing vacation that allowed me to spend time with my family and enjoy time in nature.
Guests have also enjoyed swimming with manatees in Crystal Springs and zip lining in Ocala. Silver Springs is a nearby water park and Rainbow River State Park is a local gem.
