Eclectically decorated-Bringing nature in doors. Distressed Butcher block countertop w/a wash pale sink,Exposed pipes in the kitchen & shower w/ Edison lights for the industrial, yet nostalgic look. An antique-claw tub outdoor shower. FRESH & CRISP sheets on a brand-new King & Queen size Beautyrest mattress. Premium pillows round off a restful nights rest/sleep. A great deal of care went into the build & décor, as we are continuously having family & friends visit & wanted a place for them, that was just as comfortable as my own home. No sofa indoors, only outdoor living area, however there is a 3 sided wrap around porch with gliders that can be moved/rearranged/relocated with ease. Situated on just over 2 acres, nestled next to the river. RV & boat trailer parking on site, Large fishing dock w/ 2 poles. **2 single rider Hobie Mirage Kayak's (peddle NOT paddle! Much easier & relaxing), & last a new trolling boat; all are available for rental (see hosts for pricing), Private driveway w/ electric gate & opener, Secure grounds, Pet friendly *small fee applies, large dogs ok ****NO CATS NO EXCEPTIONS! $10 pp/PD. Cash due to host upon checking. 2 dog maximum...!!!!DO NOT LEAVE YOUR ANIMALS UNATTENDED/uncrated WHILE YOU ARE HERE. This fishing community is extremely laid back & quiet. The streets roll up early & there's VERY limited nightlife! Our crime rate is ultra low, our Sheriff William Snyder - doesn't mess around! We are approx. 10 miles from both I-95 & Florida's Turnpike, making it a convenient stop for travelers. An array of birds gather around the many feeders, providing soothing melodies. Manatee are year round in Florida and can be observed with ease from the rockers on the covered porch. Occasionally seeing a small alligator (they are native here folks) or the otter can been witnessed playing on the dock/water. A 8'L x 3'W x 2.5'D Galvanized water trough doubles as a freshwater lounge pool, complete with a foam float for sunbathing & large enough for 2 adults to enjoy-with room to spare. This rests directly on the dock, under the heavenly skies & is ideal for late night star gazing with a glass of fine wine & your best friend. 2 lounge chairs also for sunbathers. Newly planted, Thick, Dark Green Bamboo, Palm & Cypress trees are prominent, providing that extra layer of desired privacy. Our "Florida Shack in the Back" was a small building that came with the home we purchased in 2013, that we commonly referred to as The Shack. We watched the sun rise & set for 2 years before we finally decided on the desired layout & possible amenities it would include. The final product was more than we imagined. We are pleased to share our home with you & your family during your travels through our beautiful state.

About Daniel Lawrence & Shannon Reynolds
Dan & Shannon have been best friends for many years. Dan, born in 1961; grew up in Newburg, NY & graduated from Marlboro HS. His family still resides in the same location & offers a "pick your own" style of farming, Lawrence Farms Orchard. Dan relocated to Florida & became a Specialty Contractor: Fence. Shannon, born in 1970 and is a born & raised Floridian. She grew up in Orlando & graduated in '88 from Apopka HS. She is a permit administrator for her boyfriend's company and a full time host. They currently have 2 dogs. Kona & her dog Girlfriend Mary Jane will patrol the fence line for intruding squirrels, lizards & the Pizza Delivery men. Both dogs are kid friendly & docile...so long as your not a squirrel! Our 2 cats, Jazzy & 8Ball will rarely be seen. Although they are outdoor cats, they never venture far from the bathroom patio at the main house. You have a greater chance of spotting Big Foot than my cats. We enjoy antiquing across the country, adding all that you see to our property which is all for sale if you like it, speak with the owners.
Daniel Lawrence & Shannon Reynolds purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Daniel Lawrence & Shannon Reynolds chose Palm City
It's Florida! The sunshine is HOT & consistent! You will all the comforts of home while visiting, from sunscreen to bug spray. Dock, Fishing, Star Gazing at night, Laying in fresh water on a float, Going to our pristine beaches......We've got it all right here! I promise: you will not be disappointed! Our "Florida Shack in the Back" was a small building that came with the home we purchased in 2013. It was basically an unusable building that we commonly referred to as "The Shack". We watched the sun rise & set for 2 years before we finally decided on the desired layout & possible amenities it would include. The final product was more than we imagined. We are pleased to share our home with you & your family during your travels through our beautiful state.

Awesome weekend getaway
My family and I had an awesome weekend at the “Shack in the back”. Shannon and Dan were so very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful atmosphere and the house was so clean and nice. We would have loved to have had more days to spend, hopefully we will be back in the future!
Postcard Picture Family. We look forward to your return.
Owners are wonderful. Think of every detail. Will go back several times and recommend it to others. I live in Florida near by and this is true southern hospitality.
