About Rene

Nurse traveler, Grandmother, Frugal traveler, Snowbird, Adventurer, Golfer, Artist, Gardener, Photographer, Blog Writer, Bargain Hunter, Paddler

Rene purchased this house in 1998

Why Rene chose Ridge Manor

Perfect Simplicity, I love it. It has been my winter nest and will be my retirement base station. Greatest place for golf, 30 great courses within 30 miles. Use golfnow, for great deals.

What makes this house unique

I love the quiet neighborhood with a rural atmosphere. Where couples of all ages stroll hand in hand in the evening. Spanish moss drapes from magnificent oaks and roads twist and turn to accommodate the trees. It's great to never sit in traffic and to just be minutes from the interstate to take advantage of all Florida has to offer.

Very clean, comfortable and private. Rene is very responsive to confirming reservations and answering questions. We stayed for 6 weeks while we looked for a house. It felt like a home away from home. We loved relaxing on the screen porch as much as possible. Perfect for our long stay.

Comfy, quiet and convenient!!

This place was a life saver for us. We found ourselves between houses when ours sold faster than we were able to find another. Enjoy the nice homey and relaxing feeling here with easy access to I-75, US 301 and SR 50. Orlando is only 45 min. away and Tampa is 35 min. Beaches in Hernando county are only 20 min away. Highly recommend this for you next Florida stay cation or vacation.

Review of Dade City Property ID 420476

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property very much. Everything was as listed in the ad, and the

house was immaculate. Our favorite spot was the beautiful screened-in back porch where we could watch the sandpipers and enjoy the beautiful flowers. It's over an hour from Clearwater, but we did drive down a couple of times to see two musicals at the Ruth Ekhard


Dade City is a lovely little town with interesting shops such as antique shops, The Book Shack (a good used book store), gift shops and restaurants. The Angel Tea Room has the best tarragon chicken salad for a lunch.

Thanks, Rene, for a lovely respite from the cold weather in Ohio!

This was our 3rd year vacationing in this lovely home. We just love the area. This home is spotless and located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Our favorite time was breakfast on the screened in porch watching the birds. Beautifully maintained backyard. Dade City is a quant town with many little shops and restaurants. The owners are very accommodating. The TV broke and a new one was ordered immediately. You will love this home!

This was our second year staying at Ridgewood Manor. We absolutely love the house and area. Very, very clean and very quiet. Large back yard with screened in room to enjoy the birds and having breakfast. Owners are very accommodating. Grill is available for cook-outs. TV broke while we were there, two days later a new TV was delivered. Love Dade City. Nice shops and restaurants.
