Totally charming and well-maintained, this cozy cottage is in a wonderful lakefront setting with 300 feet of shoreline outside your door. With a substantial dock, clean beach, and a concrete boat ramp, you can enjoy this spring-fed natural lake.
The cottage's interior boasts hand-finished tongue and groove pine paneling, and every room has a view of Miles Kale Lake!! A breezy screened porch overlooks this special place as well. This sand-bottom lake is clean and wonderful for fishing, swimming, and boating. Our whole family learned to ski here.
Exactly half-way between Ocala and Gainesville, you can be in either city or Palatka in 30 minutes for dining, shopping, entertainment, cultural events, or health care. Or, drive 55 minutes to Daytona Beach, or less than 2 hours to Disney attractions. This serene setting is for those who like to be close to nature with the advantages of cities nearby.
Great summertime place for the family - you commute to Gainesville or Ocala or P
Fantastic winter haven from the frigid north!! Wonderful Central Florida retreat for retired couples or family who are sick of go-go attractions.

Both of these listings are larger homes with many fine amenities as well. All 3 are close in case you wish to have a large group or family reunion.
What a wonderful retreat! We had such a great time at the cottage. It is a perfect getaway with everything you need to sit back and relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. From the warm welcoming comfort of the inside to the beautiful natural settings of the outdoors. We loved waking up to the view of the lake and the sun shining on the water. Drinking coffee on the porch as we made our way to the dock to enjoy the sounds of the fish jumping in the water to the birds chirping in the trees. The beautiful view from the inside family room where we watched the football game with all the Windows open letting in the cool crisp breeze of the outside. To cooking on the grill as we stoked the fire in the fire pit. The weekend get away was wonderful memories made from the best place you could be on the lake. This is definetly a 10 out of 10 retreat! Cannot wait to return!
My Husband and I love this cabin. We stayed in 2013 for 6days and again recently in July for 3 days. This will forever be our relaxing vacation spot. Next time we definitely need to stay a little longer. We went grocery shopping and didn't leave the entire time. The cabin is clean and has everything you need. We took our boxer and he loved it. Highly recommend staying here.
We spent 2 restful weeks at the Brown Cottage. My parnets visited and loved it so much they stayed with us. My sister and her family were next door so there was a lot of visiting while sitting under the trees and looking at the lake. You will not be disappointed if you book a stay at the cottage.
I highly recommend the cottage to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the sounds of nature and the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of the rat race.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed Valentines weekend there and will definately be back again. The property is beautiful and private and the cottage is cozy. Took a spin around the lake in a canoe and enjoyed sitting around the campfire.
Thanks Ed for your outstanding hospitality!
