Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great week. Cycled on the Withalotchee Bike Trailwhich was 1/2 mile from home. Had great country cooked food in the small Floral City area. There was a lot of people walking, riding bicycles, everyone was very friendly to us and had nice chats with people. Our small dog loved the area and was able to be outside with us since there is virtually no traffic this home is located on a very nice private island but very country and there is horses and a cow farm down the road. The home was EXTREMELY WELL KEPT and very clean appears the home has been 100% redone everything was brand new!

Excellent location we will be back. Thanks!!

Floral City 2 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

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.

EXCELLENT COUNTRY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very Clean Cute Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great July 4 week-end at this cute country home. It was near quant family restaurants, a few small friendly bars. There was a bicycle rental shop uptown at the only red light in town which had a wide assortment of bikes to rent. Then we went to Moonrise Resort across the lake an rented a pontoon boat this was great.

Traveled to Crystal River and ate great seafood at places on the Gulf of Mexico.

Will return next year. Owner was nice and called upon our arrival to make sure we were able to use the lockbox and that everything was to our satisfaction.
