The private master suite features a king-sized bed, plus a cozy living area of its own. Other rooms feature a queen-sized bed, twin beds, and double beds. A short walk from this hidden treasure is historic Dunnellon, where you’ll find antique shops and fun local restaurants. Rainbow Springs State Park is an 8 minute drive from our home or swim in the crystal clear water at the local beach park less than 5 minutes away.

Why Lisa Rice chose Dunnellon
Relax on our huge deck on the river to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Fish from our dock to catch big mouth bass. We have 3 single kayaks for you to explore all the nature that surrounds us. Our home is nestled in amongst 52 acres of woods yet the grocery, local restaurants, Rainbow Springs State Park, and antique shops are all less than 10 minutes away. Once you arrive at our home you would never know that civilization is close by. This is the perfect escape from our busy lives in the city.
What makes this House unique
The home is spacious and comfortable. Our favorite spot is our huge screened-in porch overlooking the Withlacoochee River as we play at our pool table. The deck creates a covered boat slip. Enjoy making smores with your family and friends at our fire pit area.

A little bit of heaven
This house was just perfect for our needs, quiet and secluded with a beautiful view. Most of the time was spent on the screened porch, sitting around the table visiting with longtime Air Force buddies. Had we wanted to, we could have gone kayaking or fishing. Although it feels like you are a long way from civilization, you are actually very near shops and restaurants. Lisa was extremely welcoming and even had a pan of brownies waiting for us. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.
Carla, it was a joy to meet you and your husband and your dear friends. We are pleased that you all enjoyed your special time together at our home. You all are welcome to come back for your reunions anytime. We appreciate how nice you left our home. Thank you for recommending our place to your friends and family. That means a lot to us!

This home is amazing!!! It’s perfect for multiple couples!! It’s so quiet and relaxing. I could have not asked for a better home owner that greeted us when we arrived!! Lisa and her home are such a blessing in this busy world!! It just forces you to have a little R&R!!!
It was a pleasure to meet you all!! Thank you for taking such good care of our home and even giving me a head start on laundry. :-) Your kind words warm my heart and reinforces why we enjoy renting our home to nice people like you that need the relaxation our home gives people. We look forward to having you return anytime!
Kindest Regards, Lisa & Ray Rice
Beautiful and Serene!
The home was absolutely wonderful. The relaxed ambiance was immediate the minute you walked through the door, it is a true river house. Our family loved sitting on the deck during the sunset hours to listen to the sounds of nature all around us. We brought our boat and took rides down the Withlacoochee to see all the wildlife and also took a short 10 minute ride to the Rainbow River. The home has everything you need for a wonderful vacation and we loved the little touches that the owner did for us before our arrival. Thank you for the surprise treats Lisa! We will be back soon!

Great house. Very fun time. Recommend.
Beautiful home, not a rental feeling at all!
We truly enjoyed our stay at your home. The pictures truly do not give justice to how beautiful this home is. It is so nice to come in to a space that is equipped properly to allow you to enjoy yourself. Many houses I have leased do not even have the basics, let alone the extras. The kitchen is fully equipped and so is the house. We really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Thank you for your wonderful review and recommendation to others wanting to stay in our nice peaceful and relaxing home. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and that your family was able to have the quiet time together that you needed.

The MOST beautiful River House
It’s been 3 weeks since we left the Withlachoochee River, and not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought back to our awesome stay. All of us are still missing the Rice’s gorgeous River House Retreat. It is beyond beautiful. Lisa and Ray are wonderfully gracious hosts, and epitomize hospitality. They are just the right blend of friendly and helpful, without being too overly envolved. The house is simply amazing. It was very clean and tidy, and well stocked with every amenity. Even though the kitchen is small, it is fully functional and was just the perfect size for us. It had exactly what we needed for cooking every meal. I even baked a birthday cake for my mom. My family and I were there celebrating a combined Mother’s Day/ birthday weekend. The six of us were all more than comfortable with our accommodations. When in the house one can’t help but feel at home. It’s almost magical how it feels both equally cozy and spacious. The front and backyard are nothing short of serine and breath taking. The house is tucked away down a narrow dirt road in the woods. Yet, it’s just a short 5 min drive into town where there are grocery stores and a pharmacy, and restaurants. Then just another 5 minutes to the oh so fun Rainbow River. On Saturday, we rented a glass bottom boat on the Rainbow River. We brought our own tubes and even one of the kayaks from the house. Then on Sunday, we took turns on the peddle boat, in back, while my husband fished off the dock. My daughter and I had so much fun on the peddle boat that we were out for two hours before we even realized the time. In the evening we enjoyed playing pool on the beautiful screened in porch. The billiards table is in excellent condition and is well equipped. There were flat screen TVs, a Blu-ray player and WiFi for when we felt like lounging. We can’t wait to come back!
