Property description

Escape to the tranquility and simplicity that awaits you in this two-bedroom/two bath spacious cottage nestled in seclusion on the point of four rustic acres on Lake Consuela. The fully screen enclosed porch with three rocking chairs await you as they overlook the beauty of the lake.

This recently renovated 1,300 square foot cottage, located 12 miles west of I75, can sleep up to 4-6 people.

A row boat is available for front row, on-the-water seats for the sunset or for fishing.

Floral City holds a delightful Strawberry Festival in March.

1/2 a mile away you can enjoy Blueberry picking in April; Blackberry picking in May.

Beautiful Rainbow Springs - a must see and feel - can be reached in 40 minutes. Swimming in any of the many refreshing, invigorating Florida Springs is like non other. Secluded cave exploration awaits you fifteen minutes away. Airboat rides, horseback riding, miniature golf are close by. For an exciting evening, attend the races at the Citrus County Speedway just down the road. Shopping, restaurants and theatres are within minutes.

Withlacoochee State Rails to Trail bicycle path is within walking or riding distance @ 0.4 miles. Bikes can be rented at Hampton's Edge right around the corner.

YOU DESERVE THIS!

PETS: Pets are welcomed; additional pet deposit required.

Located down the country road from this property is our sister cottage, Cove Cottage, an adorable 1000 square foot one bedroom/one bath (VRBO listing #221342). Cove Cottage is not lake side, but lake access is less than two hundred yards away and boats will be made available.

Also nearby to the east side of Lotus is a beautiful 1920s cypress cottage with lake view, spacious porch, deck, knotty pine interior walls and ceilings, fireplace and charm galore. It is a 1000 square foot two bedroom/one bath with full amenities. Outside you can enjoy the two-picnic table pavillion, fire pit, deck, bikes and boats (VRBO listing #266094).

All three properties are ideal for multi-family vacations, church groups, retreats, etc.

We've enjoyed this area so much that our families have been vacationing in the peaceful beauty of Floral City since 1968. So much so, that in the last five years we've acquired these additional properties. We hope you'll enjoy any or all of them as much as our families do.

Busch Gardens is 75 minutes to the southeast. Disney World is 80 minutes to the east. This property is located 75 minutes north of Tampa Airport.
