Property Description

Enjoy the sunrise AND the sunsets over gorgeous Cedar Lake. Yes, we have an small island directly offshore that's a protected rookery - often teeming with exotic and endangered birds. I bought this home on first sight for my counseling agency, The Packard Institute, Inc., specifically for it's richly ambient, healing, and therapeutic qualities. The sounds created are mesmerizing. You will return year after year for the birds alone. Among the endangered species you will see are Everglade Snail Kite, Audubon's Crested Caracara, Piping Plover, Florida Scrub-jay, Wood Stork, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, and if you get lucky, the occasional otter has been known to visit. Take the kayaks out to the island... but please try not to disturb any of the area's many species.

Friends, this is a modest, two bedroom home - but we feel the location is hard to beat. The master bedroom has a king, the guest bedroom has a full, and the Florida room has a pull-out couch bed. Minutes from the gulf, you are at end of a cul de sac and on the point of Cedar Point Drive. Water views from the east, south, and west. Prime fishing off of our private dock (the "sweet spot" of Cedar Lake), or grab a rod and hop in one of our kayaks to explore one of the lake's many channels. If you kayak into the gulf, be sure and use the clear-bottomed kayak. It's taken us years of searching, but we've discovered where the wild dolphins frolic. Secret map available upon request. In ground kidney-shaped pool (with lanai).

52' and 48' HDTVs w/DVD & 1000s of Movies and Channels via Roku, and a spectacular nature show out on the lanai. Basic kitchen. Linens and towels provided. We are pet-friendly. Secure, 1/4 acre fenced in lakefront yard - perfect for your well-behaved dog, with pet-doors installed to the lanai, Florida room, and garage area. Pool and lawn service included. Premium cable/high-speed internet included. Hop on one of the many bikes or kayaks and discover the Nature Coast. They are included without any extra charges - we only ask that you use them with great care and return them clean and in repair. Please check us out on a satellite map - the location and setting will speak for itself. Try zooming in on the island... imagine the sounds. Better still, view our current video tour available on request from The Packard Institute, Inc.

Oh, and did we mention the birds?
