About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Conveniently located just 4 miles from Good Counsel Camp.
This unique 1000 square foot 1940’s cottage has knotty pine tongue-in-groove paneling through out and has been family owned for more that 40 years. Each bedroom has a queen bed with old fashioned quilt. The spacious, fully equipped kitchen is filled with country charm. The living room has a brick wood burning fireplace to enjoy on those cooler evenings.( firewood included). During the day, you'll enjoy a leisurely bike ride (bikes provided) on the oak lined lanes of Floral City or the Rails to Trails, (more than 40 miles long for the serious cyclist) which is less than ½ mile away, or browse some of the many antique and art stores throughout Citrus County. In the evening enjoy an open fire grilled dinner under the lighted pavilion or enjoy a cocktail while finding the stars that you've never seen before from the city.
Surrounded by towering cypress trees and moss-covered oaks, this beautiful little town is reminiscent of the days of 'Old Florida'. An abundance of springs, lakes, rivers and parks has rightly billed this destination as 'Mother Nature's Theme Park'. Within 20 miles of Chazhowitzka, Homassasa and Crystal Rivers where you can experience beautiful Florida Springs and a manatee adventure like nowhere else. Explore limerock caves just 15 minutes away. On Saturday nights attend the stock car races at 'The Citrus County Speedway'. (They have school bus and boat trailer races several times a year, a must see!) Golf everywhere, airboat rides 5 miles away, horse back riding, blueberry picking , strawberry festival in the spring. There is always plenty to do.
Located a stone's throw down the country road from this property is our sister cottage, Cove Cottage, a cozy newly renovated one bedroom/one bath (VRBO listing #221342).
And around the bend just a little further, within walking distance, is our two bedroom/two bath lake house 'Lotus Point' located on four acres of rustic Florida land (VRBO listing #194799).
All three properties are ideal for multi-family vacations, church groups, retreats, reunions, etc.
Busch Gardens is 75 minutes to the southeast. Disney World is 80 minutes to the east. This property is located 60 minutes north of Tampa Airport.
Our property is pet friendly - well-behaved dogs, 35 pounds or less, please. Small pet deposit required.
