About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The natural sights and sounds from this river home will quickly ease you into vacation mode. With approximately 2,600 square feet, this 3-bedroom/loft, 3-bath home, can accommodate the whole family. 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. We have 3 single kayaks for you to enjoy right off of our dock so you can explore the beautiful nature that surrounds us on the Withlacoochee River. We are located on a quiet part of the river so fishing is great for the Big Mouth Bass. Call today to book your relaxing get away and find out why guests come back year after year.

Why Lisa Rice chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for your very kind review. I really enjoyed having you guys as guests and look forward to your next visit in April 2012. In the meantime the deck is waiting as well as the fishing gear. Thanks again, Harold Korb

Beautiful setting for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Lisa, for sharing your home with us. We really enjoyed the lovely setting among the trees....saw deer, gators, and lots of nature right from the dock. The house was perfect for our group of 6 and we enjoyed the screened porch the most....watching the world float by. I will send you some pics so you can add us to your wall of fame!

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This river house is such a cool house. The owners make the stay totally worth it. This house comes with everything you need, from the Kayaks to fishing poles and every household amenity you can think of. Lisa is a great host. Thanks for the homemade bread; it was delicious... We had a great time exploring. We went scalloping several days. The property accommodated my 21 foot boat and was 20 minutes from crystal river. Will stay again and will recommend to friends and family.

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Charming Withlachoochee Home started due to a scheduled group swim down the Rainbow River. We decided to turn it into a weekend away from the kids and birthday celebration as well. The home couldn't have been any better! Lisa was so kind and quick to respond and accommodate us and our last minute decision to get away! The home is spotless and well furnished with every amenity you need! It is in a very quiet and peaceful nook of the river, but so easy to get into town if needed. We enjoyed the outdoor activities as well as peaceful rest in the evenings/mornings. We were greeted with a handmade birthday banner, homemade bread and a warm welcome from Lisa, the owner. We enjoyed watching the wildlife, eating and playing pool in the back screened in enclosure and even doing AM yoga on the back deck! (Ok, that was just me...but it was wonderful!) I am so thankful we found this gem and look forward to another stay soon! Thank you Lisa for making our stay so perfect!!!
