About Roman Northcut

I enjoyed a wonderful childhood in this cabin full of exciting adventures on the lake, nearby rivers, and the Gulf. Currently, I am a partner in an interior design company. I love getting out to new places, the outdoors and water. Lakes and beaches are the best. I read a lot and enjoy hosting friends and new friends. My motto is do for others what you want to receive yourself :)

Roman Northcut purchased this cabin in 1981

Why Roman Northcut chose Crystal River

This property has been in my family for decades. Its such a beautiful and unique location with some of the best views on the lake. Recently we remodeled it to include a beautiful Florida room with lined with windows making a very relaxing place to sit and watch the lake. Lake Rousseau is also know as one of Florida's most rich fishing secrets. Quiet and tucked away from most travellers, the lake stays full of fresh water fish. For salt water and gulf fishing, only a couple miles away is a boat ramp into a large canal leading directly out to the gulf.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautifully remodeled to blend that "Dad's Fishing Hole" feel with the modern comforts of today, the Kingfish is a beautiful and relaxing get away. Away from it all, yet close to Crystal River, gives it the best of both worlds.

Tranquility meets Nature

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to spend some quality time with Mother Nature! The cabin is in an RV park, but fenced off from three sides, so very private. Apparently it's been owned by the same family for decades, so lots of cool history in the pictures and books that line the walls and tables of this cozy place. There is a nice big, green grassy yard that leads directly up to the lake front complete with beautiful Spanish moss draped trees. I spent every night out in the yard watching cranes, pelicans, egrets and even a few herons parade around the water and into the gorgeous sunsets... I even witnessed a white egret fly down to the waterfront dock and walk right past me, not three feet from my chair! She must be a regular here, as she was not afraid of me in the slightest. The cabin itself was comfortable and well appointed. The outside temps ranged from uber warm to quite cold during my stay, yet I had no issues with the air or heat working properly....big plus in my book :) Really enjoyed the close proximity to so many of the natural springs to see the manatees, kayaking down the rivers and there's a beach within a 15 minute drive! Great for seeing the small towns or the larger cities, all within 10-30 minute nice to be "away" from the hustle and bustle, yet so close at the same time. Will definitely keep on my "list" of places to return to! Thanks Roman for all your hospitality!
