Great time spent at the Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need for a wonderful relaxing time. We are big "hiker's and "bikers". There were wonderful trails for both hiking and biking in easy driving distance. This is a great central location....... short driving distance to Crystal River and Dunnellon both. Only one mile to the dam where you can hike or bike or fish, too. We enjoyed our stay.

I beautiful pace to be if it were warmer.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our vacation in this cute cottage. It met all of our needs for 10 days. It is close to friends in Ocala and The Villages . Very close to the cute town of Dunnellon. An awesome Tea Room, yarn shop, Art Co-op Gallery and Antiques. Also enjoyed seeing the over 200 Manatees hibernating in 3 Sister Springs. We had delicious sea food at Charley's in Crystal River and Stumpknocker in Inverness. We had quiet down time on a few warm days and got to see the beautiful sunset over Lake Reusseau.

Well Built. We rode out Hurricane Irma there on Sep 10-11th, 2017. Cat 2 hurricane. Our stay was a last minute arrangement after we got a mandantory evacuation order in Putnam county Fl. We apprecite Amy's rapid short term notice booking with a flexible leave date. Our actual stay was 9-12th Sep. Really a nice 2br house on a clear lake with all the amenities. All you need is your food. Cable, Wifi, full kitchen, dock, aluminum boat, grill, patio with furniture. Would hold a family of 4 or a couple who want a lakeside retreat or vacation. We will return when we can enjoy good weather and all the amenities. Amy was a gracious host.

Amazing sunsets over the lake!L

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this cottage, very relaxing!! My dog loved the fenced in yard. We grilled out a couple nights and watched the sun set. Didn't get a chance to use the canoe or row boat as we went out exploring the Springs which are close by. We did try fishing but had no luck.The owner is very easy to talk to about anything and the cottage is clean and roomy. I would recommend this place, and would definitely stay again!

A nice get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation, just the two of us and our 2 dogs. It's the perfect spot to get away, nice quiet neighborhood and beautiful river front view. House is well equipped and comfortable. So romantic sitting on the dock watching the sunset every day. We have this one bookmarked for future vacations
