2007 modular home located in majestic 'Old Homosassa,' off Mason Creek Rd/ near Hancock, this 2/2 was custom built for the perfect getaway. The Withlacoochee State Forest is located just 1/2 mile from your doorstep and offers pristine oak hammocks, deer and other animals, and very well maintained accessible trails. Enjoy wildlife coming right up to the dock as manatees and otters swim about during various times of the year. The coldest months January/February are peak for swimming with our gentle giants, the Manatees, in Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River, only 15 minutes from camp. Just head North on HWY 19 about 7 miles. Manatees give birth every year in our waters near the dock during the spring time. It is protected and quiet with little to no boat traffic where the mother can rear the calf. Check out our recent Manatee swim (2/2/13) to see these gentle creatures. Copy/Paste This Link:
With access to the gulf, you can help yourself to some of the best fishing in the world. Launch your boat at community boat ramp located down the street, at the end of Mason Creek Rd or at Macrae's in town, your choice, there are several to choose from. Our house has an extra long/wide driveway for boat/trailer and cars. There will be aerial views and a chart noting the Homosassa River and Mason/Petty creeks, as well as other points of interest in the Homosassa area accessible by boat. The scalloping grounds are roughly 20 - 30 minutes by boat from the dock. Additional information will be provided in our Guest Book. If you have questions during your stay, don't hesitate to ask. The Scallop season was permanently extended last summer by two weeks so the season now runs from July 1st through September 30th. In the Scallop grounds, the water depth will range from 3-6', your choice based on your physical ability. You literally can stand and catch scallops. There is a fresh water hose, sink and cleaning station at the dock for you to rinse your boat, gear and catch, have fun! We know you will see why we love our Homosassa. Observe mother nature and see why this place is nicknamed the 'Nature Coast.' I have gps coordinates, like a crumb trail, leading out to the Homosassa River, with areas of concern marked, and the water gets skinny in those areas at extreme low tide, can't say it doesn't. There are google earth images and GPS coordinates in the guest book and if needed, I can provide you numbers to get you in the scallop grounds. Its about 20 - 30 minutes to the mouth of the Homosassa River, depending on how much you plane and there are no idle zones, except for exiting the neighborhood. Last year we did not receive reports of guests damaging wheels (props). If there are any further questions about your boat or navigation, you can call me at (561) 676-4791.

About Judy or Jack
We love retreating away from the busy lifestyle here to relax and fish the Gulf where the fish are plentiful! As avid divers and water people in general, we have been diving and spearfishing the Gulf since 2005 and can tell you first hand that some of the best fishing is in the Gulf. Whether its spearfishing, hook & line or scalloping, access to the Gulf of Mexico is right at your doorstep and only minutes away.
Judy or Jack purchased this house in 2007
Why Judy or Jack chose Homosassa
I frequently travelled to Crystal River from Gainesville in the 70's, and when I married in 2002, my husband and I decided to spend our honey moon at Plantation Inn, and he fell in love with the area, especially Homosassa's natural beauty. We purchased our property in 2005, adding a home the following year. It has a deck & dock, as well as a spacious 'no see em' screened back porch. We've spent countless hours enjoying the outdoors and the quiet. We especially love to sit on the porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and listen to the birds.
What makes this house unique
We love the coziness of our wood burning stone fireplace and when we're not enjoying the quiet, we are enjoying all there is to do in the area including fishing, scalloping, kayaking and some very nice motorcycling through the old Florida scenery. There are numerous destinations from Cedar Key to Ocala and Leesburg to Flora City. I love the fact that we can walk out our back door, straight to the boat, and enjoy a nice beautiful scenic ride to the Gulf, with little to no boat traffic.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We came down from Iowa as most northerners do to escape the cold months. It was our first time in Homosassa and we just loved it. We really enjoyed our time in town taking in the local color. The seafood was always fresh, there's nothing like fresh. There were a wide variety of things to do in Homosassa and the near by towns. We will be thinking of our stay and how much we enjoyed it. Thanks for inviting us into your home.
