Tampa Cabin Rental Photos and Description
2/1 Log house sleeps 4. Lakefront views and 'Old Florida' char
2/1 Pole House Cabin w/ Loft (1 Br. Apartment has just opened up for February!)
This 'Old Florida Cracker House' is a charming, lakefront pole house, located directly on this sparsely populated 27 acre lake. This lake adjoins another 64 acre lake and it is perfect for canoeing or kayaking. You can fish from the dock or just enjoy a peaceful sunset. The property is almost 2 acres and it is very quiet. The weather is beautiful during 'the season'- sunny and warm! This is a historic property and the original Cabin was built in the late 1800's and is an authentic Florida 'Pole House' with a large, flagstone fireplace. a loft with a futon couch and two bedrooms. The large bedroom has a King size bed, the smaller bedroom has a new full-size, turn of the century wood carved bed with new IKEA mattress.
There are the original hard-wood floors throughout. There is a large screened porch facing the lakefront and a private dock with expansive view of the lake. It is a great place to cook out dinner or enjoy a glass of wine and relax then roast marshmellows in the fire pit.
Kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped. There is an organic fresh-fruit and veggies market a few miles away. The Brooker Creek Preserve is nearby which supplies the water to this region.via springs and lakes. There are many Golf Courses nearby and a half dozen within 5 miles. I can even provide the guide! The sun coast trail is only a few miles away for long bike rides or walking. There is a wonderful public park for running 3 miles away and another park for various outdoor activities even closer. Owner's live on site. This is a STRICTLY NON-SMOKING property. There is WiFi (high speed internet) throughout the property and cable TV. Full bath in both with new cotton linens. We are sensitive to those with allergies.
We are not set up for large events such as weddings. Small family get-togethers are good. I am a Folk Music DJ on a Public Radio station in Tampa, so we love other music-lovers and can point the way to lots of great music events large and small. (There is a smaller, lakefront 1 Br. Apartment also available on the property with Queen Bed and Full size pull out sofa in living room).

About Owner/Property Manager
We love music and nature and enjoy a good meal! We are music DJ's on Public Radio, and have stayed at Bed & Breakfast locations throughout the world! We welcome people that will enjoy the 'Old Florida' atmosphere. We love it here. I lived here when I was first married, then moved away and was President of The Historic Hyde Park Neighborhood Association in a historic neighborhood near downtown Tampa. We lived there for 30 years, raised four children who are all grown now. We decided to move out to our lake house- which happens to include several houses. It's fun to have extra houses for friends and family. If you enjoy music and nature, we'll be able to send you in the right direction!

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Tampa
This property is the best of both worlds! It is quiet and peaceful and in the 'country'- just across the street from several acres of a Blueberry Farm, yet there is always so much to do in Tampa, only 30 minutes to downtown center with lots of great theater and music events, interesting museums and lots of many restaurants of all kinds. The beaches are nearby, as is Tarpon Springs, a sleepy Greek town with great food! Downtown St. Petersburg is really growing to be a destination in itself with great dining and museums- a very clean, and well-planned city. The great thing about this location is that you get the best of both worlds- if you want to keep busy, there are plenty of things to do. We are so centrally located that you could head any direction to find things to do. We are very convenient to activities, but you can just come out and relax and enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine and weather- you will know why so many people move to Florida in the winter! It is gorgeous here!
What makes this cabin unique
The weather is beautiful, the lake is peaceful and inviting and the location offers the best of both worlds - convenient to everything yet still in the 'country' on a property at the end of a cul de sac. There is great music and warm weather- who could want more! While the owner is onsite, we try to give you a lot of space for quiet rest and relaxation. We'll have plenty of suggestions for entertainment!
