This two story house has a laid back lodge feel. The original owners built this house using trees that came out of the river (as you will see in the pictures) that adds to the rustic feel of the four open ceiling bedrooms upstairs. This charming home has plenty of room for up to 12 people if the large sofa is used for sleeping as well. There is a queen size bed located down stairs for anyone that may have issues with climbing stairs. There is also a bath on both levels. the bath down stairs also has access to the river so that you don't have to necessarily go through the house to get to it. We also offer the use of two kayaks to enjoy the exploration of nooks and cranny's of the river. Plenty of local restaurants in town, however the kitchen is ready for you to cook if you prefer. we provide linens, and towels, but you may want to bring extra towels if you plan to swim often.

Kid friendly clean quiet & relaxing!
We will definitely be coming back! Perfect swimming area for the young ones and the adults loved swimming to the rock in middle of the river. House was very accommodating. We all enjoyed the paddle boat very much. Fishing off the dock was plentiful. Donna treated us with a basket of goodies and was pleasant to deal with. Love love love this treasure of a spot!
It was great having you all. Looking forward to having you back. Thank you so much for the review.
Rainbow river magic
This is our second year staying at the river house. The addition of kayaks and washer and dryer were great. It is comfortable and accommodates our tribe of littles and elders. See you next year
Great River House on Rainbow River
Our stay on the River at Donna’s place was great! Cute rustic place with plenty of space. Kayaks provided by owner was a nice addition! We kayaked to head spring then kayaked downstream back to the house. It was a blast! Upon arrival we had a “sweet” surprise.....carrot cake greeted us! It was a nice touch by the owner. Owner was very responsive and directions/house rules were clear and straightforward. Overall, I’d recommend this place for a nice getaway doing outdoor activities.
Lindsay, we are so glad you guys enjoyed your stay. Myself and the owner Mary, would love to have you and your guest stay with us any time. You all were a true pleasure to deal with.
We had a great time and made many memories at Donna’s beautiful river house! The location is perfect, we enjoyed having direct access to the river and the use of the 2 kayaks. We saw otters, went river tubing, hiking at Rainbow Springs State Park, kayaking, checked out the local antique stores, and tried gator for the first time at Blue Gator! Unfortunately the paddleboat that was advertised was not there so that was a bit disappointing since there were 6 of us. However we still had a great time, it’s a fun house with a lot of charm. Donna is a great host, easy check in process, left us a hand written note and the pastries were a nice thoughtful touch
Nina, I'm so sorry that the paddle boat was broken when you got there. I have taken the paddleboat off of the description of the house. We are going to try to purchase more kayaks for the house for next season. The kayaks seem to hold up better to all the guest using the property. You were a lovely guest and we hope to have you again in the future.
Thanks for booking with us.
We had a wonderful relaxing time. Enjoyed the stay.
When we arrived we had a wonderful basket of muffins. The house suited our needs very well. We were able to tube right from the house down river to the park at the bridge. Had a great time , thanks
We're so glad you all had a good time. We hope to have you all as guest again.
Beautiful! Clean! Fresh fruit and banana bread left in a basket for us! Plenty of room! Quiet! Relaxing!! Love it!!! I would love to come back next year! My son got to catch little fish off the dock and we got to see a bunch of otters swimming and eating!
Thank you so much Shanon. We are so glad you enjoyed our little slice of heaven on earth, here in Dunnellon. Thank you for taking such good care of our vacation rental. You and your guest are certainly welcomed back any time. It was a true pleasure to have you as guest.
