Relax in beautiful lakefront home located on the large Tsala Apopka Lake in Hernando, Florida. This home is professionally decorated in the cottage/shabby chic style and is warm, inviting and romantic. All of the home decor items and furniture are for sale from a home decor store, Velvet Cabbage!

Enjoy stunning sunsets from the upper deck or patio overlooking the lake. There is a covered boat dock available for your boat or just fish off the dock and relax with the slow pace of Florida living.

Canoe, kayak and paddle boat available for use, adult over 18 must be on board.

This is part of the old Florida, which has natural springs and moss covered trees. Numerous natural spring parks are located less than 1 hour drive. Enjoy manatees, fishing and wildlife. It is absolutely beautiful. 29 minutes to Rainbow Springs and 20 minutes to Crystal River, Three Sisters Springs

Withlacoochee State Bicycle Trail is one mile from the house and covers 46 miles of Florida beauty.

The house is located one hour from Disney World and 1.5 hours from Tampa. It is close enough to the Florida attractions but away from the traffic and crowds. There are numerous golf courses located nearby and including some championship courses.

This is the perfect place for a week or a month. Ask about a monthly rental discount; escape the cold winter and come to Florida for much less than a hotel room.

This area is offering new and upcoming businesses of wineries and breweries that showcase local talent. Barnyard Winery and Brewery, Copp Winery and Brewery, Whispering Oaks Winery, Lakeridge Winery, plus many more!

Pet friendly to pets who are not allowed on the furniture, please.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Marianne's rentals. We love them both so much that it will be difficult to decide which one to go back to next. Both are fabulous. We lacked for nothing. So cute, so comfy, so perfect. We absolutely loved the lake views. As soon as we got settled we fell into relaxation mode. Honestly just can't wait to go back bc it is such a great home. Restaurants galore & we had breakfast & dinner out daily and they were all amazing! We are so blessed to be less then a 2 hour drive away & we are already looking at our calendars to figure out when we can come back! Marianne is a jewel. She is so helpful & easy to work with & a wealth of information. Thank you Marianne!!

This cottage is outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

The décor is shabby chic (love it!) but this cottage is anything but shabby!!

Our family surprised our Patriarch with a birthday weekend at this wonderful location and we were all pleasantly surprised.

The location is quiet and the lake view is beautiful. We ate all our meals outside on the upper deck off the master bedroom. Beautiful breezes and gorgeous sunsets were our backdrop.

The bedrooms were spacious and plenty of seating in the living room. Very clean all the way through.

The canoe was well used. Did not use the kayak or paddle boat, but it was nice to have them available.

Inverness is just a hop away, so if you can pull yourself away, there are lots of shops and scenic rides close by.

The lake is large and we saw many airboats, bass boats and jet skis. Only one snag for us. We brought a pontoon (rather large three pontoon) boat. The locals laughed when we pulled up to the public boat ramp. Not only were we too large to launch, the lake was not deep enough for us have done much boating. No worries. We did take a trip to Crystal River and enjoyed the opening season of scalloping.

Delightful. The "Partriarch" said he would love to own this place. And that from an absolute naysayer to second home ownership.

The owners were extremely helpful, especially since we could not talk, but arranged everything by email.

Thank you, thank you for a memorable family experience.

We were very happy when we discovered the home and the place around. It was like we imagined, a home with many , many, charm, inside and outside . Here ,the nature is magnificient with the lake and the somptuous trees ....

There are a lot to do from this location , we loved very much our choice . Marianne , the owner was always nice and sincere with me when i was asked her about Hernando and around. And, sure, i wrote her many many times ....She was , never, unpleasant!

We hope to meet Marianne and her husband a next time in the future! There are very great and helpfull.

Sorry for my poor English , i do not speak very well but however i hope everybody understand that we had a lot of joy to stay in this home and in this country!!!

Great fishing and boating on Tsala Apopka Lake system. Bring your own boat and dock it at your own covered boat dock. Plenty of wild life on the lake and peninsula to enjoy from the deck and patio area. There are championship golf courses located nearby. The rails to trails system is located only one mile away and covers 42 miles of beautiful land for some of the best biking trails in Florida.
