Mom's River House..quiet n peaceful, canoes, docks

The cottage is situated on a dead end road...road ends on a canal. The wide porch with rocking chairs face a cypress lined cove which opens into an area called, "Lake Rousseau" which really is the Withlachoochee River. There is a dam (see dam spillway pics) below the house with a recreation area and fishing. The cove where the cottage is located is has only four houses...outside the cove is a wide expanse of river in which to fish. The house has been in our family for forty years and belonged to our parents and is new to vacation rentals. We treat you as family. The house has been updated and refurbished, but still maintains the "old ...Read more

Additional Location Information

The area abounds with lakes, rivers, springs, and is near the gulf. So there is fresh water at the cottage, but near the gulf (about 10 minutes). Crystal River is a small town but has several nice restaurants and a neat antique and boutique shop area...Kings Bay located in Crystal River is spring fed and hosts manatees during the winter months. Rainbow River is to the east of the cottage, about 15 minutes away, and is a crystal clear river which offers tubing and kayaking. Actually the river outside the cove flows past the Rainbow River. North of the cottage is a town called Inglis. The main road through Inglis to the bay is a lovely drive through marshland to the gulf on the Follow That Dream Highway...named after the Elvis movie filmed on this drive. Saltwater marshes and the river flowing into the gulf at Inglis affords good saltwater fishing and a boat ramp. A small park with tables allow for picnics. A dam is located just a few miles to the west, also has covered tables and fishing piers.

The immediate area of the cottage has a fish camp close by...boat ramp, camping area, fish bait. The neighborhood is quiet as the cottage is on a dead-end street. On the cove you will find only five houses and a canal (dead-end street). The cottage has rocking chairs facing the cypress tree lined cove...chairs on the dock and an outside grill area replete with wet sink and mini frig...charcoal and utensils. For cookouts with extra people, we have more tables and chairs available, just ask Allen.
