An amazing place to relax with your family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly hidden away. We never heard a car or person the entire time we were there. All we heard was the sounds of birds, fish jumping and bullfrogs. We lived on the screen porch and the outside decks. My husband joked that he could not get me to come inside until the sun went down. We fished, kayaked and paddle boarded as much as we could possibly stand. The listing description is accurate. The three bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and well maintained. There was room for everyone to have a little space of their own if they needed it. Lisa met us at the house and had a loaf of home baked bread waiting! The house was very well stocked with everything we needed and there is a Walmart just down the street.

We were able to kayak to the tuber bridge in less than an hour. You could continue up into the rainbow for swimming etc. The cove is also nice for paddle boarding etc. The kids pulled brim out of the lower deck all day long. We saw blue heron, alligators, turtles, an otter, etc... You literally could sit on the upper deck all day and be content. If you like to be outside and enjoy nature, this is the place for you.

An Outdoor Adventure Awaits.....

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, the first thing we were drawn to was the porch.....wrapped around the back of the house my little fisherman's eyes perked up and he was headed to the car to get his pole. Let's just say, he stayed on that porch for five days and mom was happy. As we entered the house, Lisa had a freshly baked loaf of bread for us and the house was spic and span clean. Spring Break was here and this teacher mom, two boys, 15 and 10 and grandparents were ready for a peaceful retreat.

The house was perfect...the boys claimed the upstairs room as my teenager was lugging up his gaming system....the parents had the master bedroom which had a sitting room with gorgeous views of the river. Now about the wildlife, we saw deer, gators, birds, frogs, hummingbirds, and butterflies...it was like we were at a state park with the comforts of home. We had fun padding around the river in the two kayaks they had...and morning walks watching the sunrise through the trees were amazing.

The town has some cute thrift stores we had fun looking through and one day we did venture to Rainbow River. We rented kayaks and spend the afternoon paddling down the clear blue waters. All in all this was a memorable Spring Break! We all went home refreshed and renewed. Thanks Lisa and Ray for sharing your special place with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting others know about your stay at our home. It was such a pleasure to meet your wonderful family and we are so glad that you had a great relaxing time. We loved the excitement of your son and him showing us the fishing pole he made from an old palm frown. We were very impressed! Thanks for taking such nice care of our home during your stay and leaving it so clean. We look forward to seeing the pictures of your adventures and having you come back again. Stay in touch, Lisa & Ray Rice

Ideal River Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from our fantastic stay 10/16-10/20 for my husband's birthday weekend. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the house was just as nice! Plenty of space for 6 and privacy for the adults. We caught huge Bowfin fish right off the dock! Grilled out every night under the stars and roasted marshmellows in the fire pit!

October in Dunellon was such fun...there is a little pumpkin patch called "The Pickin' Patch" we took the kids to...what a blast!! Hayrides, corn maze, slides and great folks. Rainbow Springs park was gorgeous too. Docking our boat in the back of the house was perfect.

Harold, thank you for a memorable time ...we will definitely be back next year!

Fishing & Fun

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great weekend. My cousin and I have not fished together in over 30 years!! He caught the most fish but I caught the biggest!!! Coffee and conversation on the deck was the most relaxing time. There is a lot to experience and see on the river and the lake.

Thanks again,Robert

Keep this a secret.....

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to tell anyone about this house and owner as we had such a great experience. I want to keep this all to myself. Harold was wonderful to work with and the house is well kept and stocked. The screened patio as well as the outside deck are perfect and the river view and access unbelievable. We will be back again and again.
