The Cabin at Cedar Landing is your base for exploring the hiking, fishing, paddling (canoe & kayak), birding, and hunting opportunities in the Ocala National Forest. A 1,500sf, 2 BR/2 BA log cabin that comfortably sleeps six (living room couch folds out) is perched on a clearing above +6 acres of forest sloping down to the Rodman Reservoir & Oklawaha River. The feeling is tranquil and rustic, but with modern amenities such as WiFi and central air conditioning / heat. A separate 350sf cottage sleeps four more people (futon + twin bunk bed, bathroom w/shower stall, wall unit A/C & heat, 350sf screened porch, no kitchen).
Stroll down a short wooded path to fish at the dock with views of the Cross Florida Greenway, or trailer your canoes & kayaks to the same spot or any number of nearby paddling trails. The river is packed with bass, pike, catfish, perch, alligator gar, mudfish, and the occasional gator. Paddling trails are shaded by canopies of forest, and transport you to the heart of the natural world. Boat launches for larger craft are located in Hog Valley (5 minutes drive on paved roads) and Rodman Reservoir (15 minutes drive over dirt roads); access to the St. John's River is available both at Rodman Reservoir and Salt Springs (25 minutes away, paved roads).

Take a break from outdoor adventures to enjoy peace & quiet on cabin's 65 foot long screened porch graced with ceiling fans and views of the forest.
