The natural sights and sounds from this river home will quickly ease you into vacation mode. With approximately 2,500 square feet, this 3-bedroom/loft, 3-bath home, can accommodate the whole family. The private master suite features a king-sized bed, plus a cozy living area of its own. Other rooms feature a queen-sized bed, twin beds, and double beds. A short walk from this hidden treasure is historic Dunnellon, where you’ll find antique shops and fun local restaurants.
Thanks for your very kind review. I really enjoyed having you guys as guests and look forward to your next visit in April 2012. In the meantime the deck is waiting as well as the fishing gear. Thanks again, Harold Korb
We had a wonderful 50th birthday celebration at the Rice River House Retreat! When we arrived, Lisa took us on a thorough tour of the home and spent time getting to know us. She even baked us amazing bread and had a special birthday banner for our arrival.
The location and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. The home was well maintained and we really enjoyed meals and hanging out in both the outside and screened-in patio areas. We rented boats down the street to explore the rivers. We also enjoyed fishing and kayaking right from the backyard dock. We would recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life!
There are no words to describe how amazingly beautiful this home is, the location is perfect near town but yet hidden in the woods, we never heard a car go by, only the sounds of nature were heard...so relaxing, our kids enjoyed playing pool, fishing, watching movies, figuring out puzzles (great selection by the way) and hiking in the woods.
We WILL definitely return! The owners are so sweet made us feel so welcomed. Thank you Lisa and Ray for having such a beautiful home.
Love, the Pavon Family
Perfect birthday getaway for my husband and anniversary trip for my in laws. We enjoyed everything from the beautiful open country home on the river to sounds of wildlife and close proximity to rainbow River, withlachochee state trail , rolling acres of horse farms and the gulf. We had a wonderful experience. Loved kayaking from the back deck. Best bass fishing just minutes from the dock and plenty to see and do in this charming small town. Lisa made my in laws feel right at home and had fresh home made bread when they arrived. 5 stars. Definitely hoping to make it an annual trip!
My high school aged kids and I had a wonderful time here. I highly recommend this location and I rarely write a review. Lisa greeted us with her famous bread, which was great. The house was very clean and comfortable. Plenty to do around here and a nice escape from all the noise and distractions in life. This has to be the coolest place on the river. All the other positive reviews are right on the money!
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.
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!
