LAKEFRONT COUNTRY HAVEN NEAR OCALA & FOREST -

Ocala House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 2-7

Absolutely stunning lakefront home (one of my 3 available to you) sits on 300 feet of shoreline on Miles Kale Lake in northeast Marion County (between Ocala, Gainesville, & Palatka) near Orange Springs, FL. Incredible renovations were recently completed including a fantastic addition. The Great Room of the house, built in 1949, sports beautiful tongue and groove wood paneling and a beamed ceiling. The new addition includes a convenient large gourmet, dine-in kitchen, a spacious laundry/pantry, a new full bath, and a fabulous screened porch overlooking the lake. Large Pella picture windows allow viewing the lake while cooking, dining, and relaxing. This tranquil lake retreat is minutes from the Ocala National Forest, numerous springs, the Ocklawaha River, and the charming towns of McIntosh and Micanopy. The dock is great for fishing and the lake for swimming. Miles Kale Lake is about 40 acres. Check out my other homeaway.com lake places -- listings 117133 and 910353.

Activities & Attractions: Tranquility, views, relaxation; swimming, fishing, boating -- sandy bottom, spring-fed lake; snorkeling in the springs; using nearby rivers (Oklawaha, St. John's); Silver Springs Amusement Center; University of Florida & Central Florida Community College; Ocala Horse Farms; McIntosh 1890's Days; Micanopy artist town; easy drive to either coast (Daytona or Cedar Key); Disney - 2 hours.

The house has new, outstanding mattresses in the bedrooms: a Supplepedic Memory Foam mattress, and a new Serta Pillow-top comfort mattress. The trundle bed in the sleeping alcove makes two twin beds and has two new single regular mattresses.

To accommodate a seventh person, there is a twin mattress under the queen bed in the master BR. It can be moved to the living room.

Other Lake Options: I have two other lake cottages. One is next door on its own acre. It is homeaway listing/Property ID 117133. This allows guests the option of having large groups or reunions close by to enjoy being with one another. I have rented both cottages for this type of gathering many times. Then, on the next lake over, big Island Lake, I have another fabulous home in the woods: homeaway listing/property ID 910353. It is a fantastic 2BR/2BA large redwood cottage with the option of a guest house on the same property. This retreat sleeps up to 9 comfortably. It too has a dock and boat house.

A HOUSE AS LOVELY AS IT'S OWNER

A House as lovely as it's owner
  • 5 of 5
This house, and it's owner made my 10th trip to Florida the only one I have EVER enjoyed. The house is wonderful. The kitchen has everything you need.

Ed makes the experience that much more wonderful for you. He is a true, honest, gentleman.

If you value a vacation at your owe pace. Lot's of privacy. Nature all around-yet close to the city, this is the best of the best.

I can't praise Ed enough!

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, HELPFUL OWNER

  • 4 of 5
We couldn't get a place in Gainesville due to UF graduation so we decided to spend some relaxing time on the lake. Overall a great stay. The location is beautiful and the house is kept in fantastic shape. Just a couple pieces of advice. It is a good 45-60 minutes to Gainesville depending what part you are going to, so keep that in mind. Also, I would advise checking in with Wanda a few days before you come to let her know what time you will be arriving so that the house is open when you get there. But overall, a great stay and we look forward to hopefully returning at some point. Ed is a great host and very responsive to questions.

FUN, COMFORTABLE, RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our time spent at this Lakefront home was amazing and the owner was awesome to work with. The owner has thought of everything to make your visit all you could want. There were 8 of us, 4 generations and 2 dogs. We celebrated Thanksgiving, 3 Birthdays and Christmas all in 4 days. Made wonderful meals in the well appointed kitchen and played lots of games on the big table for 8. Lots of fun was enjoyed outside by the fire and many smores were eaten. The kids and the dogs loved the big fenced yard. Thanks for creating such a great place for all to enjoy and thanks for being kid and dog friendly. We will plan on returning. Great place for family retreat. Loved all the pretty decorating touches, art and vintage items.....real style!.....even the dishes have class and style! :} The owner has paid attention to details.

IF YOU CAN'T RELAX HERE, THEN YOU CAN'T RELAX.

If you can't relax here, then you can't relax.

I will truly miss this home. It was peaceful and quiet. Clean and accommodating. From the well stocked kitchen, to the plentiful linens for the bath and beds you won't need much. We really enjoyed the rides in the canoe, sitting on the dock and relaxing in the screened in porch. A wonderful cozy home that we will return to in the future.

Two of my 3 homeaway.com listings are on Miles Kale Lake next door to each other. Miles Kale is a quiet small lake. On the next lake over is Island Lake on which I have my biggest lake home. See the map. They are within several 'blocks' of one another. Each home has a wooded acre associated with it. Two cottages share 300 feet of shoreline, an excellent dock, and a boat ramp. Miles Kale Lake is about 2 miles from the intersection of Marion County Roads 318 & 315 in Orange Springs, Fl, 32182. This unincorporated community sits on the northwestern edge of the Ocala National Forest and Lake Ocklawaha. The Island Lake house has a gorgeous lot, dock, and shoreline as well.

Other Activities: river kayaking, snorkeling in springs

Golf: There are public golf courses in the three surrounding cities: Ocala, Palatka, and Gainesville.
