Property description

Unforgettable Waterfront Cottage Retreat on a canal that leads to the springs and the gulf . This house also has the option of renting the vacant one bedroom cottage on the first floor.
This home is inviting to your cozy
gathering. It is decorated in warm log cabin like atmosphere with a fireplace that sizzles in both the living and dining rooms. The dining room can sit 12 for dinner with a full kitchen supplied for entertaining. All the homey conveniences while surrounded by mother nature at her finest
If you are looking for a vacation rental in Florida, this is it. This beautiful, cozy cottage is totally remodeled. It has wood flooring throughout, and the bathroom is totally remodeled. This 3 bedroom cottage sleeps 6 people. The living room area has high-volted ceilings with a cupola and wood beams and 3 sets of French doors which open to a wrap-around, screened in porch that affords waterfront views. A floating dock is available for you to dock your boat.
Come for a perfect vacation on the beautiful Homosassa River. Rent any boat from Safari Rentals on Yulee Drive and spend any number of days on the river exploring its endless water trails (detailed maps provided by Doreen, the owner). Go up the river to crystal clear springs for a swim. You may also see manatees and lots of fish. Enjoy the evenings at the Monkey Bar (an excellent full menu restaurant with moderate prices), watching the monkeys play on the Monkey Island, have a beer at the Shack and watch the boats pass by, or just relax in the privacy of your beautiful waterfront home with its gourmet kitchen and cozy living room with family and friends.  
 
There is a wildlife park just round the corner too, which provides an entire day of wonder and adventure for people of any age. Ask Doreen for a program and directions to the park and see manatees, bald eagles, wolves, Lou the hyppo and everyone else.
 
You are only 19 miles away from Inverness, where you can begin your bike ride on the longest paved bike trail in Florida, the Withlacochee State Trail. It is also the most beautiful. An average biker may need 3 days to do this trail, which runs 46 miles one way. Just South of Nobleton,  the trail gets you to a network of off-road trails (the longest is 32 miles), which makes some of the trails in Northern US look like a joke.
There are many other things to do close by like fishing, boating, sailing, sightseeing, antiquing, golfing, flea market, horseback riding, zoo/wildlife park, kayaking, water skiing, swimming, shelling, scalloping and many more. If you want to rent a boat, there are a number of marinas close by (within walking distance).

The canal is only minutes away to the Gulf of Mexico. You can sit on the fabulous porch and enjoy your morning coffee/breakfast or have an enjoyable dinner out on the porch, with a beautiful view of the waterway. Sometimes you might get lucky seeing dolphins or manatees swimming in the canal right off the deck. Smoking is not allowed inside.
