This charming house is located in historic Yankeetown across from the public boat ramp. Three bicycles and a canoe are available for your use. Bike through quaint and historic Yankeetown, or to the gulf along "Follow That Dream" Highway. The Withlacoochee (Native American for crooked river) winds peacefully by, less than 200 feet from the living room window, and is a wonderful place to explore by canoe.
The house is surrounded by cedar trees, cypress, and native palms, with a wetland area directly to the west. You'll be just a few miles from the Gulf, with easy power-boating access to Crystal River and Cedar Key. In the immediate area, on the scenic Withlacoochee, you're close to nature - explore by canoe, kayak or boat, and you may see osprey, roseate spoonbills, wood storks, egrets, herons, otters, alligators, manatees or dolphins.
You’ll love the proximity to the river, the quiet location, and the awesome nature experience. The master bedroom is large, featuring a comfy king-sized bed and a fireplace. The second bedroom is average in size and has a nice queen-sized bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, etc. You'll enjoy dining in, if you like to cook.
Spend the day away, and enjoy Three Sisters Springs, Rainbow Springs, Manatee Springs, Silver Springs, or Homosassa State Park. All these are within an hour drive. (Three Sisters and Rainbow Springs are less than 30 minutes.) In summer, enjoy scalloping in the shallow waters of the Gulf, between Crystal River and Homosassa. You'll be able to leave from the boat ramp directly across from the house, and you'll have plenty of covered parking for two vehicles and two boat/trailers in the long garage area under the house.
This house is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, kayakers, boaters, and small families. Please note that it's built on stilts because of its proximity to the river - therefore it is likely not a good choice for those who have difficulty with a full flight of stairs. Come stay at the Withlacoochee River House, and enjoy the nature experience!
