Come and stay in our Vacation spot while we are away!
- WE DO NOT CURRENTLY OFFER DISCOUNTED RATES FOR MONTHLY RENTALS....This is our Florida vacation home, we would like to have space to visit too! - Thanks for understanding, and we hope to hear from you soon! :) *
Oh, and by the way, we visit less in the Summer, please watch for our updates and specials at that time... :)
Our Florida home away from home, is nestled in the heart of The Ocala National forest! Talk about back to nature! Enjoy the ATV trails, swim at the "Healing Springs" or just enjoy the wildlife! We are in a fully secured, gated resort in Salt Springs with night security.
Our home sleeps 4 comfortably or up to 6 with recliners and/or cots/air-mattresses set up. We have one Queen bed in the master bedroom and a full size pullout sleeper sofa in the living room.
We are located right next to an 8 unit bath house, so no worries if someone is using the bathroom! Just head next door and there is bound to be a free one!
We have a small washer/dryer combo right inside if you need to wash or dry a few items. Don't feel like doing your laundry? Check out the laundry service at the laundry mat right by the gate! They offer a full service laundry option during the week from 8-10am!
Feel like just hanging out at the resort? Check out "The Lodge" where there is always fun to be had! There are special events scheduled on the weekends here. Easter egg hunts, dancing, bingo and all kinds of fun! Outside during the Summer there are 2 swimming pools, one for adults and one for kids! They each have an accompanying hot tub/spa! During the winter they only keep one side open for everyone to share.
Inside this place is equipped with 2 pool tables and two ping pong tables too! You check all things out at the local bar by the gate "Saltys" or just stop in to read one of the many books in stock to share or play a game with a loved one.
Our favorite place to go in Florida is to the local Warm Springs. They are crystal clear springs that have very deep limestone sinkholes that release millions of gallons of water each day!
In the winter time you may be lucky enough to spend some time with a few manatees! They swim up to the surface in the springs to get warm in the winter. Many people are lucky enough, especially early in the morning, to swim with them!
Don't be fooled by the term "Warm Springs" though....They feel cold! Don't get me wrong it's beautiful and very refreshing to swim in such clean, mineral rich water, but 72 degrees Fahrenheit is kinda cold. That hasn't stopped us though...We get an annual pass to visit all of the local springs all year, for just $65.00 each!
Let me tell you, between the trails and the springs, we never want to leave this place!
Our full kitchen is equipped with a gas stove top an oven, a full size fridge, coffee maker and basic cooking and baking dishes and utensils. Towels, washcloths, blankets, linens and pillows are provided. We also have some games, like a mini bean bags set, ladder golf, washers, our own ping pong set (So you don't have to get one from Salty's), and even a pool stick with a set of balls. (Just in case the ones at the lodge are being used.)
Pack your food, clothes and personal hygiene items and you are set to go!+ More
