Angela Markus purchased this House in 2016
Why Angela Markus chose Inglis
We first visited the Riverhouse in March 2016, promptly falling in love with it. Surprise! It was for sale! It is to be our retirement home in a few years, but in the mean time, we want to share our little retreat with others who cherish pristine nature, quiet evenings by the fire pit, and family fun indoors and out.
What makes this House unique
The immediate sense of calm that descends upon you when you drive down the rustic driveway is intoxicating. In the morning, there is nothing quite like sitting by a fire in your side yard with a cup of coffee, or taking that coffee down to the dock to watch the fish and turtles begin their day. The dogs LOVE crashing around in the woods - they are wilderness dogs here! The new fence around the perimeter ensures that you don't have to worry your pets will stray too far. And taking a canoe or kayak trip up or down the river is so easy with the floating dock right outside the screened in porch. And for you foodies out there - this is no cramped little vacation cottage kitchen! Lots of counter space, a gas range, a chef's island, and every gadget you can think of to prepare meals from simple sandwiches to gourmet meals.

A little piece of riverfront heaven
Wonderful place to stay while visiting the Nature Coast or going tubing at Rainbow River. Our little dog loved the fully fenced in property. Everything you could need is provided (the BBQ is charcoal, so you might want to bring some if you plan on grilling, since there was none left over from previous visitors). The owners have everything organized and well labeled, so there is no issues finding anything you need. The little screened patio has all kinds of fun things to do, there is a great fire pit and of course the dock and the canoe launch dock. We tried the rope swing and just had a blast. The only bad thing with our stay is that it was too short. Wonderful RnR is to be had here.
Everything we hoped for
Celebrated my boyfriends 40th birthday exactly the way he envisioned - with a quiet weekend on the river in this amazing house. Angela has taken such care to make sure you had everything you could need or want to have an amazing time. Instructions before, during and at check out were so clearly laid out. We didn’t want to leave - 2 nights is too short, trust me. We want to come back soon with our kids - they were jealous that the grown ups only weekend included canoeing and rope swinging! If you are waivering between where to stay on Florida’s rivers near crystal river / homosassa, this is the one.
Our stay was perfect! The homeowner was always easily accessible, even assisted with my need to change our dates no prob! The home is very well kept, very clean and full of activities for the family to enjoy! I could sit out on the dock on the river all day! Easy to get to the home and to eateries and shops in neighboring towns! Highly recommend this home to others!
Amazing River Getaway
The house was everything and more. Great location, secluded and quiet. We had a blast hanging in the enclosed patio area playing pool and darts. We had some pups with us who also loved the stay. They were able to run around and play constantly without us having to worry any.
Peace and Quiet
The house has a lot of space and had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. It's secluded and quiet and the river is just a few steps away. It rained a lot while we were there, but it was nice to sit on the screened porch. My wife read and I would fish some between rain showers. We played pool and darts. Away from the house, we went to some antique shops in Dunnellon and Crystal River, and had some great seafood in Crystal River. We bought some fresh shrimp and cooked some meals at the house. We sat on the dock when it wasn't raining, and saw a dolphin and a baby manatee. We also saw a lot of turtles and a couple of small gators. It was a good time.
Thanks, Randy. You and your wife were good sports as we had some work done during your stay. Really appreciate it
The perfect combo of adventure and relaxation. Wonderful, relaxing, rejuvenating, family friendly.
We absolutely adored the property. The owner was super responsive. My family was always kept in the loop and checking in and out was so incredibly easy and smooth. The environment is perfect. We had so much fun with the canoes and rope swing. Picnics on the deck and just overall the entire property and home. We enjoyed the surrounding towns and how close to other experiences the property was. It was a nice centralized location with the feeling of being secluded and private. We look forward to visiting again.
