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

one of our best rentals

My husband and I stayed at the Holt's while kayaking in the area. The cottage is adorable and very nicely appointed. The Holt's are delightful host and it was a pleasure to stay with them. There is a truly magnificent view from the dock, sunrise is to the right and sunset is to the left.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely cottage for one night as a stop over on our way to South Florida. It was well appointed and Mike could not have been more accommodating. With a rate of $75, why would you stay in a hotel room when you have so much more in this cottage, plus you are on the water with beautifully kept grounds. By far the best deal I have come across in a long time. Highly recommend!

Guest Cottage Lake Rousseau, Dunnellon, FL

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for a get away! Met our expectations. Clean and well maintained. Owners Terri & Mike made us feel at home. Spent most of our time relaxing on the dock., watching the wildlife. Especially enjoyed their beautiful butterfly garden. Dinner at Swampy's on the Rainbow River was great. We were there off season & mid week so the boat tours were not available. Boating activities are available weekends off season. Would highly recommend this property.

great retreat

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was everything we hoped for. We were very impressed with how beautiful it was. The place simply reeks with good taste, attention to details, and shows the care and pride the owners take in maintaining the place, inside and out. The only disappointments were that the cottage is on the other side of the owner's house from the lakeside deck, and that the water there is not suitable for swimming. But for the price, it can't be beat.

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.
