This newly remodeled cottage is located just a few miles downstream from the convergence of the Withlacoochee River and the spring-fed Rainbow River, Lake Rousseau is a place to relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of Old Florida. Set amidst majestic Oaks and Cypress trees draped in Spanish Moss, the wildlife and natural setting is ideal for fishing and relaxing. For the more adventuresome, there's tubing, swimming and snorkeling on the Rainbow River, golfing at Juliette Falls or El Diablo, swimming with the Manatees in Crystal River, or bring your own boat and explore the local waterways. In addition to the Withlacoochee and the Rainbow, the Crystal and Homosassa Rivers as well as the Gulf of Mexico are all within a short drive, with plenty of public-access boat ramps available.

In Dunnellon, visit Rainbow Springs State Park and tube or kayak on the crystal clear Rainbow River. In the city of Crystal River, there are plenty of things to do for the whole family, including world-class flats fishing in clear waters for red fish, trout, and tarpon. During the cooler months, you can swim with the manatees, or if you'd rather see them without getting wet, visit Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Crystal River offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. Offshore, there is terrific shallow and deep water grouper fishing. Within a short drive, there is a mall with a multiplex movie theater; restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River; kayaking, walking and bike trails; snorkeling and scuba diving. Plan a day trip to any of the nine state parks within 50 miles or work on your back swing at one of the 12 nearby golf courses. We are located 90 minutes north of Orlando and Tampa, convenient to major airports and Theme Parks.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: My wife and I are originally from South Florida, and moved to the Ocala/Dunnellon area 15 years ago to get away from the concrete and congestion of city life. We run our own electrical contracting business and are very active in the community. My wife volunteers at the local Humane Society and Wildlife Care Centers, and we are both volunteer musicians in the local symphonic band which performs free concerts for the community six times a year. When we have free time, my wife loves to kayak and knit; and you can usually find me bass fishing in my boat.
