About the Property
Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
I have a gourmet kitchen that makes anyone who likes to cook drool with pleasure. Since Cindy and Joe know the hospitality business, they have thought of everything when furnishing and finishing me. They iron the sheets and supply you with lots of big fluffy towels. They also keep the kitchen stocked with spices and condiments including coffee set up so all you need to buy is your perishable and cook away. There is a 50 inch high def TV in the great room with a supply of DVD's and comfy leather couches. I have a spectacular view from everywhere you look. Joe and Cindy like to cook dinner and eat out on the deck and watch sunset. In the mornings, they wake up, make their coffee and take turns deciding which porch, deck or screen room to enjoy.
You see, when you come visit me, you never want to go anywhere. You may feel like a quick hike but mostly you just want to relax when you stay at the Villa! Come rest awhile...I know you need the break.

About the owner: Joe and Cindy own and operate a Bed and Breakfast Inn located in Gainesville, Florida. They met on a blind date when they were 16 years old. Six years later, when Joe was attending The University of Florida, they married. After 15 years, they moved back to Gainesville and opened their Inn. Cindy runs the Inn and Joe quit corporate America and opened his own engineering office.
Why the Owner Chose Big Canoe:
In the 1980's when all we could afford for a vacation was a camping trip, we received a brochure from Big Canoe inviting us to take a tour. We figured we were heading to the mountains any how and taking the tour would give us a few days out of the tent. We fell in love with the area and we bought 2.5 acres. We spent the next 20 years dreaming of the house we would built.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This is not your typical rental. Everything is high quality and much more than just furnished. We know hospitality and have made sure that you will know how to make the most of your trip.
