About the Property
Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
This wonderful old Florida cabin, circa 1940, celebrates the charm of the era in a very romantic & cozy setting. The open 600 sf layout of this cabin is very comfortable and perfect for only two people. The screened porch looks out over the picturesque Rainbow River offering 116' of pristine river frontage. You will encounter otters, wood ducks, turtles, foxes & exceptional birding, along with other forms of wildlife.
Explore this unique river on our kayaks or canoe should you choose to indulge. Fish or dive off our dock where vast fishing opportunity abounds. We furnish a gas BBQ grill for your outdoor dining pleasure & fire pit to relax by in the evenings.
This historic river property steeped in Florida history, nestled in a very serene setting on 1.5 acres of towering pines & majestic oaks, is very much like a storybook. The property boast an ancient phosphate mine, excavated during the Dunnellon boom days, circa late 1800's. This phosphate mine was bridged over to access the cabin & river.
Wondering about the property literally brings you back in time in a park like setting. You will enjoy the natural flora & fauna, some of which could be considered prehistoric, such as the large mastodon fossils in the phosphate mine, which can be viewed. Many of the majestic pines are centuries old & history reveals they have been used for turpentine harvesting. Come and take a stroll through our beautiful property which we have been blessed with. The 1.5 acre has 2 cabins. The 1st is the rental cabin & the 2nd cabin the owners live in
There is also a small vineyard on this land, and if in season, wine may be available for tasting.
