Overview

Dunnellon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Lakeview Cottage with Private Dock

This newly remodeled cottage is located just a few miles downstream from the convergence of the Withlacoochee River and the spring-fed Rainbow River, Lake Rousseau is a place to relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of Old Florida. Set amidst majestic Oaks and Cypress trees draped in Spanish Moss, the wildlife and natural setting is ideal for fishing and relaxing. For the more adventuresome, there's tubing, swimming and snorkeling on the Rainbow River, golfing at Juliette Falls or El Diablo, swimming with the Manatees in Crystal River, or bring your own boat and explore the local waterways. In addition to the Withlacoochee and the Rainbow, the Crystal and Homosassa Rivers as well as the Gulf of Mexico are all within a short drive, with plenty of public-access boat ramps available.

About Mike Holt

My wife and I are originally from South Florida, and moved to the Ocala/Dunnellon area 15 years ago to get away from the concrete and congestion of city life. We run our own electrical contracting business and are very active in the community. My wife volunteers at the local Humane Society and Wildlife Care Centers, and we are both volunteer musicians in the local symphonic band which performs free concerts for the community six times a year. When we have free time, my wife loves to kayak and knit; and you can usually find me bass fishing in my boat.

Mike Holt purchased this cottage in 1999

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely perfect! Clean and just the right size for the two of us. Dock for our boat was an added bonus as we fished everyday! Mike and Terri are just the nicest couple. Mike helped us out and even took my husband fishing one evening. They were kind enough to invite us for dinner our last night there and we all had a great time eating the Bluegill we caught from their dock. When we do get back to Dunnellon, we will be staying at their cottage again-no doubt! Highly recommend their place if you are in the area. I'm missing the beautiful weather and the hospitality already!

Great Find

  • 4 of 5

This was a great little discovery off the beaten path of all the touristy spots. Owners were very hospitable, yet allowed the privacy that we needed. We got more than we payed for.

Nice spot, great view.

We stayed for a couple days at the tail end of our 3 week Florida vacation.

Owner was very accommodating and cottage was perfect for our needs.

Perfect place for a peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon as early the following morning we had a manatee tour booked (Crystal River is only 15 minutes away). It is an absolutely beautiful cottage and property! I would recommend staying more than one night as it is the perfect place to relax and decompress. The cottage is bigger than it looks in the photos and extremely comfortable. We will definitely stay here again!

In Dunnellon, visit Rainbow Springs State Park and tube or kayak on the crystal clear Rainbow River. In the city of Crystal River, there are plenty of things to do for the whole family, including world-class flats fishing in clear waters for red fish, trout, and tarpon. During the cooler months, you can swim with the manatees, or if you'd rather see them without getting wet, visit Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Crystal River offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. Offshore, there is terrific shallow and deep water grouper fishing. Within a short drive, there is a mall with a multiplex movie theater; restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River; kayaking, walking and bike trails; snorkeling and scuba diving. Plan a day trip to any of the nine state parks within 50 miles or work on your back swing at one of the 12 nearby golf courses. We are located 90 minutes north of Orlando and Tampa, convenient to major airports and Theme Parks.
