About Rob or Mike

Rob and Mike purchased this property as a get away... They wanted to be close to the Withlacoochee River, Forest and Rails to Trails bike path..... While initially only visiting the property once a month they quickly grew to love the area and all that it has to offer. About a year ago they decided to look for a permanent home in the area that would be able to accommodate their love of animals and give them space to have more... Well this summer they found the perfect place... Not far from the River House, in Sumter County a 60 acre ranch where they can raise their goats, horses and cattle on their own piece of heaven. Not wanting to completely part with the River House , they decided to rent it out as a vacation spot to travelers, so others could experience it.

Rob or Mike purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Rob or Mike chose Dade City

Picking out this River House was easy.... The first time they saw this property they wrote an offer to purchase.... It was just that simple. Where else can you find a house on stilts that makes you feel like you are in a tree house on the river!

What makes this cabin unique

The property has this amazing trail that winds around the woods... with gopher tortoises checking you out as you pass them, and almost the entire property is shaded by oak trees... It has a great mystical feel!

Cozy and quiet

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice and relaxing long weekend. Cozy one bedroom cabin on a very nice riverfront property. Fished from the dock and along the rivers edge, very nice firepit to hang out by and used the grill quite a bit. Although neighbors are somewhat close by and its not too far from civilization, it still had a very private and secluded feel and we never left the property. Never did use the kayaks or canoe either but they were available, maybe next time. I have no complaints well none except for those stairs, think I ran up and down those stairs at least a hundred times in the few days we were there. All in all, we had a lovely time.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at your cabin! Perfect place to unwind, and our dogs loved it too! So many nice touches - from the "goody basket" on arrival to the furnishings, eclectic decor, etc. This place has loads of character, and all of the comforts of home! I only regret that I didn't book it for a day or two longer! But we will be back. Thanks!!

Owner's Response: Steve,


Thank you for your kind words.... We are happy that we got to share our cabin with you! Glad your dogs had a good time as well..... Hope you get to visit again soon. The summer months are special as the Withlacoochee river goes through dramatic changes as it rises. Last year it rose about ten feet from where it is now... Great Kayak times!

Hope you can make it!

Beautiful property, perfect for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I visited this place for Valentines Day weekend and it was perfect. We immediately fell in love with the property, as did my dog. The cabin was perfect to just get away from everything and enjoy some time together. We turned our phones off and spent the weekend kayaking along the river, hiking at the Withloacoochee State Forest, grilling, and making smore's over a campfire. We ate breakfast out on the deck overlooking the river a couple times, which was the perfect way to start the day. We even laid out a tarp and sleeping bags one night and stargazed.

My dog loved the place just as much as we did. I live in an apartment so she only gets off-leash time at the dog park and dog beach. She laid out on the deck, played fetch behind the cabin, and explored all over the property. I have a great picture of her looking really sad as we packed up the car to leave. We will definitely, definitely be back and so will my dog!

PS The owners were great. They answered all my questions promptly through email and even had a Valentines Day giftbag out for us when we got there with chocolates, candies, hot cocoa, etc in it. Their efforts made the stay extra special.

A perfect getaway for two

My son and I were looking for a close weekend getaway to a cabin, and this was perfect for us! Only an hour and ten minutes from home. Very relaxing and cozy. I hope to return soon to this lovely cabin.

Best of both worlds.

  • 5 of 5
If you love the outdoors but don't want to "rough it" too much, then I recommend this property. The easy river access with available kayaks is the best feature, along with a very comfortable living area and bed. Kitchen has whatever you need to cook. Firepit is stocked with wood. Porch was recently redone. The cabin is very close to Tampa and Orlando areas. Grocery store and small restaurants are close should you not want to cook. The owners are quite accommodating and seem like genuine people. We will definitely be back. - Matt

I'm happy that you were able to Kayak a beautiful part of the Withlacoochee river! and got to do some biking along the rails to trails.
Your always welcome back and I hope you get to get back on the river this summer when the river is really moving.

Thanks again,

Located just an hour from tampa and and hour from ocala. Is a rolling agricultural and pristine florida forest... The withlacoochee river and the withlacoochee state forest as well as the longest continuous road bike path in the state. Withlacoochee state trail the trail is just a short 5 minute ride from our cabin door!!!!

At 46 miles in length, the withlacoochee state trail is presently the longest paved rail trail in florida. The trail corridor runs through small towns, ranches, and natural areas as it makes its way south from citrus springs to trilby. The trail traverses a region that offers many other outstanding recreational opportunities. Among the recreational highlights nearby are the unpaved trails in the croom area of the withlacoochee state forest, the withlacoochee river (south) canoe trail, and fort cooper state park. The withlacoochee trail will eventually join many other trails in the region, becoming part of the central florida loop.

For the trail bike users there is the croom trail: forest - croom off-road bike trail. This network of single-track forms two loops of 12 and 35 miles.

Actual trail length, including connectors, is over 55 miles. Trails consist of florida uplands, sweeping cross country trails (wooded and open) to abandoned mines and challenging pits and drop-offs. Check kiosks sites for trail maps.

Hiking trails start right from the cabin door... With the withlacoochee state forest trail head just 3 miles from the cabin. For a dip into the primordial wilderness that envelopes the withlacoochee river on its northward flow to the gulf of mexico, take a short jaunt to nobleton (hernando county) for a nature trail that showcases some of the biggest cypresses around. The trail is entirely in the shade of the floodplain forest – and loops around several sinkholes, including one with this massive cypress in it. It intersects with the orange-blazed florida trail in an upland pine forest, a separate 7-plus mile adventure.

A lesser-known part of withlacoochee state forest, the oxbow trail is on the northernmost tract of the forest along the withlacoochee river, the trails and campsites all eagle scout projects. While the easy-to-follow big loop trail is a popular circuit for families and folks taking their dogs on a walk, the tougher-to-follow but more visually satisfying addendum, the oxbow nature trail, makes its way out to the very tip of the peninsula, providing excellent scenic views of the river from a variety of perspectives. Riverside camping is open to individuals and groups who obtain a free permit from the division of forestry.

Kayaking or canoeing the withlacoochee river right from the cabin in our two kayaks made available to renters. Within an hour of orlando and tampa, the withlacoochee river meanders through an unspoiled cypress forest in rural florida. It ranks as one of florida’s most scenic rivers, and yet, it’s uncrowded and unspoiled. (on a sunny winter weekend when i visited, an 8-mile paddle involved seeing only one canoe. The count for alligators? Four.)

The river, florida’s fourth largest, winds through the withlacoochee state forest, a wild, natural region with many options for picnics and photography .

For the gay or lesbian traveler the sawmill camp ground is just 5 miles from the cabin. Sawmill is the premier gay and lesbian community in the southeast.

Relax at the heated outdoor

Clothing optional pool, experience the tranquility of the spacious grounds, walk around ricki lake with towering cypress trees along the withlacoochie.

Campers dance the night away in woody's nightclub and enjoy shows at the main stage inside the massive courtyard. Enjoy all 3 bars, various themed events, entertainment, daily activities and delicious food 365 days a year!
