  • Great location, great house


    Very nice and clean house. The kitchen was very well-appointed with everything you could need. The water pressure is inconsistent and new bed pillow would be nice. We really enjoyed the kayaks and the experience would have been even better if the vegetation near the floating dock was trimmed back enough to more easily launch the kayaks. But, the locations was great and the house was very pretty and spacious.

  • Perfect!


    The home was lovely, spacious and clean. The furnishings were nice, inviting and comfortable. The home had everything we needed. It is a short paddle to the main river. I highly recommend a stay!

  • Great place to relax.


    The house was beautiful and very spacious. I have wanted to return to FL and it’s clear spring rivers for a few years and wanted an alternative to a hotel. The large three bedrooms made it more relaxing and accommodating for my wives and myself. Each room offering restful privacy. I had zero problems with neighbors, loud animals or any excessive noise. Access to water was great and two nice kayaks provided with the house. Confused by a previous review involving man eating canines and traumatized service animals. Service animals my ass. Service animals don’t get aggressive and just because you don’t want to leave the mutt at home doesn’t classify him as a service animal. “In-Breds “ Am I right? The property is great and Dunnellon a wonderful little town with some great eateries and shops. Rainbow spring head just a short drive and it is a paradise. My wives are already wanting a return trip later this year. If you’re family is more than a few…this is the place.
