About Deidre Whitt
We came to the small town of Dunnellon to raise our two girls. We had a canoe livery in Ohio for over ten years. We used to travel to the Keys often; as that is where my father-in-law lives. On the way through, we found the Rainbow River and knew this was a piece of Florida undiscovered. 17 years ago, we opened a canoe livery at the end of the Rainbow River on the Withlacoochee River, www.rainbowrivercanoeandkayak.com
Why Deidre Whitt chose Dunnellon
This property is so unique, as it sits at the confluence of both rivers: The Rainbow River and the Withlacoochee River. The view from balcony is breathtaking!
What makes this House unique
This property is located close to our canoe and kayak livery. Shuttles run every day! We shuttle up either river-the Rainbow River ( a crystal clear spring-one of the largest springs in the world) or the Withlacoochee River (more of a forest float-deeper, dark panic water), and you float right back to your rental. You get one complimentary shuttle (for up to 4 People) with your stay. You also have use of up to 4 boats of choice to take out whenever you please ~ during your stay. Another unique benefit is that we are so close to town, but the area is so peaceful, you would not even know it. You have two bikes on site for your use, whether biking to a local restaurant or shop or to take an amazing trip on Dunnellon's new paved bike trail which hugs the Rainbow River.

Relaxing and Comfortable Stay
We had a wonderful time in Deidra’s home. This was a great find! Right on the water watching the wildlife. Everything was convenient to get to from the house. The kitchen had everything that we needed. We walked to close by restaurants. This was a very relaxing stay and can not wait to return. Deidra was communicating with us throughout the entire experience if I had questions. Great Place!
We had a great time and I agree with previous posts that the property is even better than depicted in pictures.
The house was very clean, nicely decorated and a great river location. We were provided with whatever type of boat we wanted for our stay and then chose a canoe for our up river “float back” trip. The staff was fantastic and we will definitely be back.
Awesome place to getaway
Otter’s Landing is a beautiful home with an awesome ever changing view of the river. We just wanted to getaway to relax , which we did just that. The house is so homey. Our favorite place to relax was on the upper deck porch, and sitting in the circular swings by the fire pit. There is a small deck area off the water where you can fish, we caught 3 blue gills. Stars at night were beautiful. We also saw lightening bugs (fireflies) over the Lilly pads on the other side of the deck. I haven’t see them since I was a small kid. Awesome light show. If you are more adventurous , there is a kayak place right next door ,the owner provides kayaks if you would to use them. We can’t wait to come back when it’s cooler weather.
Thank you so much!
Better that the pictures
Relaxing stay on the river...
This property was very comfortable, very cozy like being at home. The decor was so nice and the owner provided many nice little touches such as magazines, books, (I probably missed some of the other things), the binoculars for wildlife viewing. We had everything we needed. The deck overlooking the Withlacoochee was wonderful. I spent a lot of time out there.
Our time on the Rainbow River was wonderful! We can't wait to do it again. So much wildlife from wood ducks and their little ones, loons, turtles.... And the people at Rainbow River Canoe and Kayak, they were AWESOME! They were very helpful making sure that we had the right Kayaks, gave points of interest and instruction about the river... great crew.
All in all it was a great stay and we hope to be back soon....
Thank you so much. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know. Hope to see you again soon!:)
The Rainbow River is one of the largest springs in the world. It is commonly known for its clarity. Swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing is a must.
The Withlacoochee River is known for its bass fishing, beauty and solitude.
This house is located right by the confluence of both rivers - giving renters two amazing river options of fun!
