Overview

Dunnellon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Uncork your spirit & indulge in the phenomenal rainbow river on a property with an ancient phosphate mine & whimsical past.

This wonderful old Florida cabin, circa 1940, celebrates the charm of the era in a very romantic & cozy setting. The open 600 sf layout of this cabin is very comfortable and perfect for only one couple. The screened porch looks out over the picturesque Rainbow River offering 116' of pristine river frontage. You will encounter otters, wood ducks, turtles, foxes & exceptional birding, along with other forms of wildlife.

Explore this unique river on our kayaks or canoe should you choose to indulge. Fish or dive off our dock where vast fishing opportunity abounds. (dock mooring is available for rental boat). We furnish a gas BBQ grill for your outdoor dining pleasure & fire pit to relax by in the evenings.

This historic river property steeped in Florida history, nestled in a very serene setting on 1.5 acres of towering pines & majestic oaks, is very much like a storybook. The property boast an ancient phosphate mine, excavated during the Dunnellon boom days, circa late 1800's. This phosphate mine was bridged over to access the cabin & river.

Wondering about the property literally brings you back in time in a park like setting. You will enjoy the natural flora & fauna, some of which could be considered prehistoric, such as the large mastodon fossils in the phosphate mine, which can be viewed. Many of the majestic pines are centuries old & history reveals they have been used for turpentine harvesting. Come and take a stroll through our beautiful property which we have been blessed with.

There is also a small vineyard on this land, and if in season, wine may be available for tasting. The property has two cabins, the owner lives in one of them.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the cabin and it was amazing. So peaceful right off the river. We experienced the town's Cracker Festival at the state park, canoed up river to the spring head and enjoyed great meals at Loafer's and Blue Gators. The weekend was relaxing and just what we had hoped for. Mike and Nancy were great hosts! We are looking forward to coming back again sometime soon.

Our Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have visited this whimsical place and it won't be our last! We absolutely adore Mike and Nancy, they are truly wonderful hosts and make it a point to provide a beautiful enviroment to relax and recharge. We love to take full advantage of all that this beautiful place has to offer - fishing on the dock, kayaking up the river, canoe rides on the river, hiking the State park, roasting marshmallows at night, cooking on the grill and eating our meals on the screened in patio over looking the river as well as long walks along the property and enjoying the new beautiful gazebo that sits in the middle of everything. THIS IS OUR HAPPY PLACE... if you are looking for a getaway that offers a little adventure but also gives you the opportunity to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet - this is your place!

Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the cabin for a long weekend and had a fantastic time. We spent a lot of time on the screened porch reading and watching the people tubing down the river. We also took the time to use the kayaks including kayaking all the way to Swampy's and back.

The owners Nancy and Michael are fantastic and have set up the property so that it is pure relaxation in a very peaceful settings, while at the same time giving the guests the opportunity to have adventures on the river.

We cannot wait to go back on another trip when we can have more time to enjoy the tranquility.

Wonderfully Relaxing Time - Really felt like we got away

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I had such a lovely time, the cabin is decorated nicely and well maintained. I loved the view from the porch in the morning while we sipped our coffee. It is so peaceful there all day. We tubed down the river and kayaked as well. The owners were ever so helpful and friendly, they really made you feel at home. We could not have asked for a better vacation spot. If you are looking to get away and just relax and enjoy the outdoors a little. This is a great place where you have the comforts of home and then some. Really want to say thank you for making our time there special.

It was a great Anniversary weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My wife an I had a great time at the cabin.

We took full advantage of the river, kayaks, and canoe. Everyday we were on the water. The property the cabin sits on is beautiful, with its garden, dock and the landscaping. We loved it. The cabin was fully stocked with everything you would need minus food and your toiletries. Every night for our 3 night stay we grilled on the gas grill, and ate dinner on the screen porch.

It was a 90-95° weekend, so the water was a must, and the a/c in the cabin worked great. We got plenty of sun in the private waterfront yard. It felt great exploring the rive in the canoe and be able to pull right up to the cabin and not worry about any sort of drive. If you bring all the things you need personally, there's no reason to leave the property during your stay.

We even kayaked DOWN river to Swampy's. The kayak trip back UP river was a bit of work but it was a good experience :).

I am 100% positive we will be back to the cabin in the future, whether it be an anniversary trip again, or just a random weekend to get away from it all!.

Thanks again

Adam & Kristin
