Thanks. I take great pride in keeping it like a 5 star hotel. Glad you enjoyed it.
Wonderful, peaceful and private!
My two dogs, Lila and Calli, and I spent three relaxing months here and enjoyed every day. Lots of things to do and explore nearby and an awesome dog park within a couple of miles. We arrived before Halloween and departed just after Christmas so I enjoyed a wide variety of holiday events and festivals.
The house is in a great location with friendly neighbors and very private. We enjoyed the positive energy within the home and felt very safe as well. The owners have a keen eye for detail, the house was spotless and is very well stocked with kitchen and bathroom needs.
I look forward to spending time here again this summer.
Thanks Beth, we try hard to make it the HOME for our guests.

Floral City 2 bedroom
The house has been newly renovated. It is about a mile from the Withlacoochee trail via 48. The neighborhood is safe to walk in at night and the neighbors are friendly. As it is near a lake, bring bug spray for when you are outdoors. I would recommend the home.

Your right the area is very neighborrhood friendly SAFE and like life use to be. Very proud of Floral City a small quaint friendly town.
EXCELLENT COUNTRY GETAWAY
Had a great time fishing at the boat dock area, rented a pontoon boat from Moonrise across the lake for a day. Went cycling on the great beautiful Withlacoochee Bike Trail which was 1/2 mile from house. Walked at night on the quiet country roads and meet friendly people who live there year around what a nice neighborhood peaceful, quiet, no traffic birds, wildlife. We ate uptown at some great country hoe cooked food resturants. There also was a few small quiet bars that we had a cocktail at and enjoyed talking to the regulars. We hope to comeback in the winter when we will have snow and this place will still be as beautiful as now.
Crystal River is 25 minutes which is the Gulf of Mexico. There you can rent fishing boats, Pontoon boats, Swim with the manatees, in the spring fed water. Withlacoochee Bike trail is 1/2 mile away which extends several miles for your bicycle riding and walking pleasure. This is also great for Hiking.

Come rest and relax in our beautiful quiet country home.
