It is absolutely beautiful. 29 minutes to Rainbow Springs and 20 minutes to Crystal River, Three Sisters Springs

This is the perfect place for a week or a month. Ask about a monthly rental discount; escape the cold winter and come to Florida for much less than a hotel room.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Marianne's rentals. We love them both so much that it will be difficult to decide which one to go back to next. Both are fabulous. We lacked for nothing. So cute, so comfy, so perfect. We absolutely loved the lake views. As soon as we got settled we fell into relaxation mode. Honestly just can't wait to go back bc it is such a great home. Restaurants galore & we had breakfast & dinner out daily and they were all amazing! We are so blessed to be less then a 2 hour drive away & we are already looking at our calendars to figure out when we can come back! Marianne is a jewel. She is so helpful & easy to work with & a wealth of information. Thank you Marianne!!

Fabulous! Spacious and beautiful Lake View. It met our family's expectations.

  • 5 of 5

There were steps at entry way that sometimes caused us to stumble. One of our party uses a cane and that was hard for her to maneuver at times. That should probably be noted on the property listing for future customers.

Beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what we wanted for a peaceful getaway in the heart of the beautiful Crystal River area. The home has a nice open floor plan, high ceilings with lots of light, is decorated in a cute shabby chic and was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped which is always big for me b/c I cook all our meals. Plus, the hosts had lake toys so we canoed, fished...the lake view faces west, and sunsets were just incredible. Marianne and Tim were always available, a great place to stay! Thank you!

Plenty of wild life on the lake and peninsula to enjoy from the deck and patio area. There are championship golf courses located nearby.
