This property was unspoiled, all forested, and offered opportunity to nestle the house among native trees and wildlife where nobody had cleared before. Maximum trees and native plants have been retained. Wildlife is appreciated and views are natural.
Architect designed and built this home to maximize the spectacular forest setting, using major glass areas to frame vistas from every room. Featured is a great room with ceiling slope matching the roof, bedrooms/baths on opposite sides of the living area. In this house you can experience the Florida wilderness in comfort and style.
Great place and Owners were wonderful. Very clean with comfortable beds. Worked well for us as we had 2 couples and bedrooms were at opposite ends of home providing our own space while still in the house
Super cool house with all the amenities! Very clean and great property. We had a great time. Will definitely return. Thank you!
The house was lovely and the grounds were nice. The location is very rural and since we stayed for a Christmas vacation we mostly cooked all of our meals, due to restaurants being closed. The silverware and kitchen utensils are very sparse.
The house was very well put together and had everything we needed! The area was beautiful and peaceful.
I loved the property, I loved everything about the house. They even provided 3 different types of coffee pots to meet everyone's needs. The house was musty smelling when we first entered it, but after about an hour of running the ceiling fans, the air was normal. None of the bedding or furniture was musty smelling. All the beds were comfortable and the house has lots of windows. I would go back in a heart beat. We were about 10 to 15 minutes away from several of the Forest entrances and the food in the area restaurants was great.
We were very, very pleased with our first stay at wonderful Millennium Cottage. We were quite comfortable there. It proved a perfect home base for our exploration of nearby trails, the charming little towns of Cross Creek, Micanopy, and McIntosh, as well as visits with family. There is so much more we would like to do and see in the area.
We did have a most wonderful time at the cottage and hope to plan another visit there very soon.
