The back deck overlooks Church Lake and connects into the large Tsala Apopka Lake system. If you love to fish, then you will be in your element. There is a small dock that can accommodate a bass boat or other small boat. The cottage sits on one acre and provides a quiet and secluded escape

The 'Rails to Trails' bike path is only 100 feet from the driveway where you can walk or bicycle the entire 42 mile trail. There are bikes available for your use.

Kayaks are available for use in one of the most beautiful kayaking location. If the lake is too big, then go and enjoy the numerous springs. So many natural spring parks are located within a hour drive or less. 41 minutes to Rainbow Springs and 20 minutes to Three Sisters Springs. Manatee, fish and wildlife are right there for you to enjoy one of Florida's most beautiful areas!

The entire furnishings are for sale by Velvet Cabbage. The queen size beds are two side independent air adjustable beds (by Anderson Beds), so you can set it to the way you like your bed.

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!

If this house is not available, check out our other lake house 12 miles north on the same lake #125005. You will love either house and all the wild life around it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay here in this lovely cottage. As soon as we walked in the decor left us absolutely breathless. The color palette was very relaxing and soothing. The backyard deck was amazing. We kayaked through Church Lake and enjoyed the biking trails. We spotted some deer along the trails too! We explored the town and found that the locals were very pleasant. We went to a few antique stores and thrift shops and had great lunches in town :)



We even built an awesome bonfire!! Although there were many entertaining things to do throughout the town, we always loved coming back to the cottage. We felt really at home here. It's truly been a romantic, rustic, adventerous experience. So unlike everything in Miami.



Can't wait to come back!

Peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cozy little place! We biked the nearby trails, fished the lake and enjoyed the wildlife everyday. Sitting on the deck enjoying the serenity of nature was our daily highlight. Rainbow River was 20 minutes away so took a day trip and tubed down the river. The accommodations were amazing, so warm and inviting. Thank you for some wonderful memories.

Beautiful comfortable cottage! A cool and partly shady deck with great furniture and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for anything more! The cottage was over the top pretty, well equipped, and so clean! Everything was there as promised and in working order. The owners were gracious and so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the bikes and kayak. We would recommend staying here! Simply a treasure of a place.

Comfortable, eclectic cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful February here. The kitchen is fairly well equipped for stay-in meals, the bed comfortable and the deck in back is just great. Can't beat that view and the privacy it provides.

Fifty yards from driveway to 46 mile rails-to-trails biking, running, walking trail. Easily launch your kayak from the back yard. You really don't have to go anywhere if you don't want to. But you should. Parks and good restaurants are reasonably close. GO TO SEAFOOD SELLER CAFE IN CRYSTAL RIVER. It's worth the 20 mile drive.

Only drawback, a minor one, is the weekend motorcycle traffic. It can be pretty noisy.
