About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 5)
This secluded home is set on THREE ACRES of private wooded property on Mason Creek. This is a fantastic location to get away, unplug, go fishing, boating, diving or experience old Florida in any number of theraputic ways. Dock your fishing boat at your own PRIVATE DOCK or launch at any of 3 free ramp locations less than 4 minutes away. Picture 230 feet of private water frontage with endless waterways to explore. CANOE, KAYAK or load up your outboard for a day on the water! A scenic 15 minute boat ride will take you into some of Florida's best fishing areas in the Gulf of Mexico or cruise up the Homosassa Springs River toward Homosassa’s Wildlife Park where you can SWIM WITH MANATEES in crystal clear springs! (By land the Nature Park is less than 5 minutes away.) Only 10 minutes from highway 19; 20 minutes from Crystal River; 30 minutes from Weeki Wachee, golfing within 5-10 miles, this area is remote enough to take you away but close enough to grocery chains & restaurants and other fun excursions. At local establishments like the Riverside Crabhouse, The Freezer, MacRae's, the Starting Gate and the Old Mill Tavern you will undoubtedly experience America's small town friendliness teeming with local color. Old Homosassa is also very biker-friendly whether you are a pedal pusher or a motorized biker.
Our simple Florida lifestyle home is not high-end-fancy but it is absolutely clean and fully furnished for your comfort and convenience. Our favorite spot is the breezy 13 X 26 foot screened porch overlooking the water. This is where your daydreams begin. We have lovingly named it PARADISE PORCH. Step inside to a large comfortable great room with a panoramic view. The large island kitchen is well equiped. Other features are an indoor laundry; two full bathrooms and two bedrooms (one has a full-size bed and the master has a King. All bed and bath linens are furnished and of high quality. The spacious living room will accommodate additional day guests. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of staying on a natural unspoiled florida waterway and enjoy the sounds and sights of nature including, egrets, blue heron, ospreys, manatees, dolphins, otters, deer and hummingbirds! Spend endless days on the water FISHING and BOATING. No boat? No problem! There are plenty of charter excursions and boat rentals available in the area.
Whether you just want to relax and allow daydreams to visit, or you want to take in all that Florida has to offer, this is the perfect place. Less than 2 hours to Walt Disney World; less than 1 hour to white sandy beaches. Less than 1-1/2 hours to Tampa Bay area & Busch Gardens.

About the owner: We live and work in Orlando, Florida but found our favorite vacation spots are not overcrowded beaches, highrises & tourist attractions, rather, we enjoy areas like this nature coast paradise. We chose this place because we felt others would enjoy a unique kind of place with lots of space, privacy and being on the water. We think our rental has a relaxing cottage-in-the-woods feeling, is rejuvenating, serene and once you get here you will not want to leave.
Why the Owner Chose Old Homosassa, Homosassa, FL, USA:
If you are looking for a private natural setting with gulf access that is comfortably furnished, well equipped & very clean, but is not fancy and not as pricey give us a call. We will handle your reservation personally and we respect our guests privacy first and foremost. Ask about the special services we offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Lots of parking space for your RV, boat, etc. Very private, quiet setting of unspoiled nature with access to the Gulf of Mexico and other popular and endless waterways. Popular fishing and scalloping destination.
