About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 2-7

The house has new, outstanding mattresses in the bedrooms: a Supplepedic Memory Foam mattress, and a new Serta Pillow-top comfort mattress. The trundle bed in the sleeping alcove makes two twin beds and has two new single regular mattresses.

Other Lake Options: I have two other lake cottages. One is next door on its own acre. It is homeaway listing/Property ID 117133. This allows guests the option of having large groups or reunions close by to enjoy being with one another. I have rented both cottages for this type of gathering many times. Then, on the next lake over, big Island Lake, I have another fabulous home in the woods: homeaway listing/property ID 910353. It is a fantastic 2BR/2BA large redwood cottage with the option of a guest house on the same property. This retreat sleeps up to 9 comfortably. It too has a dock and boat house.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Two of my 3 homeaway listings are on Miles Kale Lake next door to each other. Miles Kale is a quiet small lake. On the next lake over is Island Lake on which I have my biggest lake home. See the map. They are within several 'blocks' of one another. Each home has a wooded acre associated with it. Two cottages share 300 feet of shoreline, an excellent dock, and a boat ramp. Miles Kale Lake is about 2 miles from the intersection of Marion County Roads 318 & 315 in Orange Springs, Fl, 32182. This unincorporated community sits on the northwestern edge of the Ocala National Forest and Lake Ocklawaha. The Island Lake house has a gorgeous lot, dock, and shoreline as well.
Other Activities: river kayaking, snorkeling in springs
Golf: There are public golf courses in the three surrounding cities: Ocala, Palatka, and Gainesville.
Year Purchased: 1955
About the owner: A native Floridian, this lake property was owned by my grandparents and my parents. The lake was one of our vacation homes where we spent time as a family and enjoyed being with our cousins who owned the cottage next door. The ten of kids had a blast and were always challenging one another on water skis, swimming, and many other activities.
Why the Owner Chose Fort McCoy, Florida, United States of America:
It has been in the family for over 60 years. The cottage was extensively renovated and upgraded recently. It is rural, quiet, and beautiful.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Serenity Spectacular views Close to Ocala National Forest, natural springs, and Atlantic beaches
