About Cheryl Lewis
My husband and I both grew up in central Florida (Ocala) and we both love all types of water activities. He is an avid fisherman and taught me to love it also. I grew up swimming in nearby lakes or vacationing in Daytona Beach. I never dreamed we'd own a piece of waterfront property but I think he always had that as one of his goals!
Cheryl Lewis purchased this house in 1995
Why Cheryl Lewis chose Dunnellon
We purchased our property and built our house to enjoy the beautiful waterfront and still be close to our business and family. We also enjoy fishing in the Gulf and this brought us closer to the West coast of Florida. All of our friends and guests loved to visit us at 'Blue Cove'! While we still thoroughly enjoy all water activities it became necessary for us to move back to Ocala where we grew up. Sharing our home gives us the opportunity to continue these activities and allow others to enjoy the outstanding beauty of 'Blue Cove' and the Rainbow River.
What makes this house unique
Enjoy coffee on the dock or back porch watching the fog lift off the water, or take an exhilarating swim after a walk or bike ride through the neighborhood. You can also enjoy the view from the kitchen and most other rooms in the house! Bring your favorite sheet music and play the piano. There's 2 new waterfront restaurants, one within walking distance. The Rainbow Springs State Park is very inexpensive and beautiful and you can take guided hikes/birding/canoe trips at various times throughout the year. A 'tubing' trip down the river is a unique experience!
