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!!

Charming House with Character

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! The view from the living room/master bedroom is absolutely stunning, with the back patio open to the lake, complete with dock and paddle boat/canoe for use. We didn't use these since it started downpouring during our last day there, but it was so nice to have the option. The kitchen was well stocked with flatware and plates, pots, pans, and spices. Everything was very clean and you can tell the owners have truly taken care of this home. Finding it was also easy, once you spotted the garbage cans with the house numbers on them. The covered carport was also a nice perk since we had some rain! The grill was the perfect size and was easy to use (propane). I had a bit of trouble sleeping on the mattress in the smaller guest room, as it does seem to be a bit older, but my travel companions said the master bed was extremely comfortable. The bathrooms have been mostly updated, except for the shower heads (be careful with these since they are plastic and have rusted and corroded a bit over the years. We had the hand held showerhead nozzle snap off and break when trying to adjust the spray). Tim was so understanding when we called to tell him about this and was a pleasure to speak with. Always take care of things like they are your own and give the owners a heads up if something unexpected happens. You're staying in someone's home, so treat it with extreme care and consideration. We only stayed two nights but wish we could have stayed longer! This was a Father's Day surprise for my Dad and he fell in love with this house. It was perfect for relaxing, unplugging, and unwinding. Everything is nearby - Walmart is 12 minutes away, Rainbow River is about 30 minutes away, and there are local restaurants nearby as well. Thank you Marianne and Tim for a wonderful experience. We will be back!!!

Beautiful home, relaxing lake

  • 5 of 5

This house is so cute! It is cozy and feels like home. The view of the lake from the couch is mesmerizing, I watched it while the family watched tv. Saw gators and lots of people fishing and doing other boating activities. We took the canoe out and planned on taking the paddle boat also but the rain kept us inside. We also enjoyed sitting out on the dock for hours just enjoying the breeze. We will be back!
