Totally charming and well-maintained, this cozy cottage is in a wonderful lakefront setting with 300 feet of shoreline outside your door. With a substantial dock, clean beach, and a concrete boat ramp, you can enjoy this spring-fed natural lake.
The cottage's interior boasts hand-finished tongue and groove pine paneling, and every room has a view of Miles Kale Lake!! A breezy screened porch overlooks this special place as well. This sand-bottom lake is clean and wonderful for fishing, swimming, and boating. Our whole family learned to ski here.
Exactly half-way between Ocala and Gainesville, you can be in either city or Palatka in 30 minutes for dining, shopping, entertainment, cultural events, or health care. Or, drive 55 minutes to Daytona Beach, or less than 2 hours to Disney attractions. This serene setting is for those who like to be close to nature with the advantages of cities nearby.
Great summertime place for the family - you commute to Gainesville or Ocala or P
Fantastic winter haven from the frigid north!! Wonderful Central Florida retreat for retired couples or family who are sick of go-go attractions.
Centrally located: this wonderful lake home is centrally located between Ocala, Gainesville, and Palatka, Florida. it is one mile from the intersection of Marion County Roads 318 and 315.
OTHER OPTIONS: I have two other homeawayc.om lakefront properties: Listing/property ID 127321 on the acre next door and Listing/property ID 910353 on the next lake over. Both of these listings are larger homes with many fine amenities as well. All 3 are close in case you wish to have a large group or family reunion.
We are coming to the close of our lovely month at the little brown cabin, the perfect place to kick back and relax. Our dogs love the quiet, and we love the screened in porch overlooking the lake. We got lots of reading done this month, but also explored the area. The info that Ed (owner) gives you about the area and where to go, what to see and where to eat have been extremely helpful
We have explored McIntosh, Micanopy, Gainesville, Palatka, Silver Springs, Salt Springs and, of course Ocala. And lots more!
The cabin is perfect for 2, but easily can hold a few more if company arrives.
We have loved our stay here and will be sorry to see it end. Thanks Ed Wynne! (Wanda is the greatest!)
A great little cabin. We had a fabulous time. The cabin was clean, comfortable and cozy. It had everything you needed. The fenced in property was great for our dogs. It was so nice to see them run free and play in the lake. They had a blast. The only downside were the occasional deer flies and wi-fi which didn't really work. It was like dial up. Not a big deal. We would definately go back. So nice to get away from the hustle and bussel of everyday. The owner was very nice and helpful as well, responding promptly to my emails and questions. Thank you Mr. Wynne!
We enjoyed our stay. The property was a nice cabin located on a lake. The property was everything the owner stated. It was very clean and well kept. We would go back and recommend it to friends. We were thankful that it was pet friendly.
This was perfect for my husband and myself along with our Boston Terrier. We were visiting his niece and nephew in Ocala. We even hosted them at the cottage for a day! Everything we needed was provided. We'll definitely co e back when we come down again from Ohio.
We loved the little brown cabin on the lake. We were looking for a getaway, and we found it. It was clean, peaceful, quiet and all we needed to relax. We loved canoeing on the lake and just sitting on the dock. We will definitely be back!
This cottage is perfect if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway. The size of the cottage is just right for a small family, and it is fully equipped with everything you need from the kitchen to the washer & dryer. As soon as we arrived, my kids insisted on going out on the lake in the canoe. My daughter was fascinated by the lily pads in the lake. I enjoyed just sitting out on the dock in the sunshine listening to the birds. It was nice to be able to cook meals in the kitchen; it is stocked with very nice cookware and dishes. During our stay, we went snorkeling, horseback riding, and to the local speedway. All of these places were about 30 minutes away, which isn't bad considering the serenity of being away from it all. Also, the owner is extremely helpful and will provide you with all the information you need, including a map, things to bring, instructions for the water heater, Wifi, etc. He is very responsive to inquiries and it's obvious he cares about the comfort of his guests. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone!
