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 Crystal River's natural beauty. My husband is retired from the military and says 'there is no place, like this Place'. It has huge deck & lots of dock space, as well as a spacious lanai. We've spent countless hours enjoying the outdoors and the quiet. We especially love to sit on the lanai in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the Manatees feeding and generally being Manatees. It's just a short paddle in our kayaks to 3 Sisters springs, the Manatee's living room, especially during cold winter days.
Judy or Jack purchased this house in 2012
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. We come here to recharge the batteries, so to speak, and generally decompress from the rigors of life. Only minutes after you arrive, you'll understand what I mean.
Bait & tackle
Boat launch (Pete's Pier)
Guided fishing (in shore/off shore)
And anything Else....
We spent a week at this amazing home. To start his is our second time dealing with the owners, we have also stayed at their Homosassa home which is also amazing. We spent a week with the family at this home. The house is in great condition, cute, modern, and very clean. The best part is the location. A few minutes kayak to the springs, and a very easy ride via boat out to Kings Bay and to the Gulf. We spent a week and never felt bored at all. We will be returning here next year. The owners are great to deal with, which is an added bonus. You can't go wrong staying in either of their properties.
What a beautiful home. Clean and newly remodeled. My family had a wonderful experience staying in the home. Location is great for getting to 3 Sisters Spring. My teenagers loved taking the 2 kayaks to the springs. The Dock is perfect for docking your boat or boats. Plenty of room. The cleaning station makes cleaning scallops and fish a joy. I have nothing negative to say about my rental. I know that I will book this home again for next years scallop season. I highly recommend this home.
We stayed at this house for opening scallop season for obvious reasons. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. The location of the house couldn't be better. We've stayed at a few homes in Crystal River and Homosassa and this was BY FAR the BEST yet. Starting with the communication with the owners, friendly and extremely helpful. Judy and Jack were quick to respond with any and ALL questions we had at any time via text, calls and email. The house was completely and 100% CLEAN (my self diagnosed OCD was at ease) and supplied with everything needed for a nice getaway. It was comfortable and well laid out with several upgrades and has remodeled very tastefully, VERY modern inside. It has that open communal feel to it for entertaining which made it that much more relaxing. All the rooms and amenities were excellent. From the enclosed patio with celling fans, the middle deck for laying out, to the tow boat docks, not to mention the fish cleaning station (which came in handy) were so useful. The house is literally a peaceful 5 minute kayak stroll to the head of 3 Sisters Springs and maybe a 10 min idle out boat ride to the heart of Kings Bay. (which in case you're wondering, a T-Top will clear the bridge to the bay at any tide, well at least it did on my 21' bay boat) I can go on and on about this house. Everyone had a great time and we will certainly be back... that's a guarantee!!! Thanks again for an EPIC scallop/river fun weekend and a great house.
BTW, follow up in regards to the security deposit return was extremely fast! Could not ask for a better overall experience.
What a great place to relax and recharge! All the outdoor living spaces make it great for family get togethers. I would definitely stay here again.
This area of 'Old Florida' has many activities, both indoor and outdoor. They call this area of Florida 'The Nature Coast' for a reason. If you are an outdoors person, this is the place for you. With miles of hiking/biking trails, over 100,000 acres of Wildlife Management Area, hundreds of square miles of the Gulf of Mexico waters, just a ten minute boat ride away, there is no shortage of outdoor activities. You'll need to bring your toys: boats, bicycles, kayaks, motorcycles scuba gear & fishing equipment. When you stay in our home, you will watch Manatees right at the dock, or hop in the kayaks and paddle to 3 Sisters water that is gin clear and 72 degrees year around. We refer to it as being reborn by simply taking a swim in it. The springs pump out millions of gallons of pure spring water a day. The word refreshing only begins to explain these waters on a hot summer day. The entire Kings Bay is accessible by kayak and diving Kings spring. Our waters are some of the best fishing whether its off shore in the Gulf of Mexico or staying inside our mangrove estuaries and the Salt river. There are any number of local restaurants of all types of cuisines, numerous small local pubs, watering holes and our own local Copp's Winery. Its only a mile and change from our house, with their own brews and wines produced from their own vineyard. Motorcyclists will love the 'Old Florida' charm of the local communities, all within an hour ride in any direction: Homosassa 15 min, Leesburg 1 hour, Cedar Key 1 hour, Tarpon Springs 45 min, Hudson 45 min, Ocala 1 hour, and many more to be discovered on a day's ride. We have been riding through the area for 8 years and still have not seen it all. There are scenic drives that start at HWY 19: Ozello, Homosassa, Chassahowitzka, Yankee town, Cedar Key and more.
