Property description

My comfy country escape is yours to enjoy year-round, for a weekend, week or month at a time. The 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom private home can accommodate 8-10 people. It's a nature lover's paradise w/ wooded trails, just 25 miles from Gainesville and UF.

There is a kitchen bar, brick fireplace, oversized bath in the master suite, full laundry, 6-person dining room table, a piano, lots of open windows, a back porch and flower garden. Pet friendly, and has a chain-linked fence on the back of the home so your pups can play!

Melrose is known for its many lakes and water activities. We also have several art galleries and wonderful antique shops. If you need any restaurant or other recommendations, please do not hesitate to ask!

The home is located 25 miles from Gainesville and UF, an less than and hour from Saint Augustine beach. We also have great little towns to explore all around, including Keystone Heights, Palatka, Starke, and historic Micanopy.

You do not need to worry about noise. I want my guests to use the space as if it were their own! Please leave the home in the same condition you found it, and smoke only outside.

INTERNET IS LIMITED. If you have your own internet access through a cell phone provider or iPad, etc., I ask that you please use it. I can offer use of my Verizon "jetpack" but do not allow video streaming, movie downloads, video game or music streaming, or anything that eats up data too quickly. Normal email and web-browsing is fine. Any data use over 2GB/week (or weekend) will be charged at $15/GB. Month-long guests must limit their use to 8GB. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but have had issues with guests in the past who have cost me hundreds of dollars in internet overage charges.

If you need anything at all, I am just a few miles away!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I was born and raised in North Florida, about an hour northwest of Melrose on the Suwannee River. After spending 7 years up north in Chicago and Philadelphia, my love for nature brought me back home. I now have a small law practice and enjoy painting, playing piano and guitar, and gardening on my little country paradise, Forest Hills Estate.
