Enjoy the peace and quite of simple seclusion on the beautiful Withlacoochee river. Five acres with over 500 riverfront feet directly across from the State forest for your ultimate nature vacation. Surround yourself with the peaceful forest where birds (land and water) deer , turkey , fox , are common sighting (their home) yet you are just 15 minutes from I-75 and SR 50;
Exit # 301.
Come relax and regenerate in this riverfront cottage, nothing fancy (1600 SF), not a luxury hotel! Free use of canoes and kayak. Relax and unwind in the warm bubbles of the hot tub while your steaks (or veggies) sizzle on the grill. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea on the first story back porch; the hummingbirds, cardinals, and many others come in 'close' for their breakfast at the feeders and the 'resident' pair of Hawks and Pileated Woodpeckers are always about. Or... wake in the tree tops on the second story screened porch (2 sofa's and a single bed).
Bring all the novels you've put off reading...kick back in the recliners in the reading room and enjoy the peace and quite of seclusion from the city.

I purchased the Riverhouse 13 years ago. I was searching for riverfront property for a client and drove out to preview the property. I fell in love immediately....called the listing Real Estate Agent and the rest is history!! I almost sold the Riverhouse a few years back. The children had grown up and moved out and everything seemed too quite. I had lost my initial appreciation of the beauty and solitude, and the amazing wildlife and river. The 5 acres 'felt' like a lot of upkeep. But I couldn't! I could not imagine 'not being there' to make certain the birds (and humming birds) that I have fed for 13 years were provided for... or that someone may cut down the trees, or, on and on! A friend told me about VRBO and the incredible guests they have had. So, here I am over 4 years later with a renewed appreciation. I have had the privilege of meeting so many amazing people that have such enthusiasm, love and respect for nature, it's refreshing! Vicki
