We offer a totally remodeled old Victorian-style farmhouse
situated on 21 beautiful acres of pines, oaks, and birch trees with 300 feet of the most beautiful sandy shoreline and beach located on the south end of Long Lake, together with 1600 feet of access on both sides of the gorgeous crystal clear waters of the Crystal River, the only outlet for the entire Chain O' Lakes. You can enjoy boating, safe swimming, fishing, or idle time just watching the Crystal River fun boats pass under your private bridge. We also provide the use of a free 14-foot fishing boat, an aluminum pier and bench, and swimming raft for your enjoyment. The sunsets are across the lake and so the beach is generally sun filled until around 8:30 p.m. in the summer. You can hike the marked woodchipped trails through the woods or the groomed trails along the river and, more than likely, will observe the natural wildlife of deer, wild turkeys, and other woodland animals.
For the active, there are is a horseshoe pit, a basketball hoop, volleyball equipment, and a beach/fire pit.
The residence is located adjacent to the picturesque Rural Road away from the beach, but there is a private road and parking area solely for our guests automobiles or, if you choose, an easy lovely pathway through the woods to the beach in one direction or to the Crystal River in the other. The beauty and privacy of the entire area is yours alone to enjoy.
