A secluded romantic getaway in Florida's Ocala National Forest. This cottage is situated on a privately owned property on a beautiful canal one turn off the St. John’s River, surrounded by Florida's Ocala National Forest. It's the perfect retreat! You will find miles of hiking, off road vehicle and horse trails in the forest. Trophy bass fishing in our many lakes or the nearby St. Johns River, and hunting for deer and wild turkey in season, are close at hand. So... bring your easel, camera, binoculars and boat and join us for a truly unique getaway experience and see what Florida was like in years past. Come spend a weekend or a week with us. Whatever your indulgence, your comfort and privacy is our main concern.
