Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 28, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

"Hypo Haven", my Beautiful Lakefront Home sits on 300 feet of

shoreline on Miles Kale Lake in rural NE Marion County (between

Ocala and Gainesville and Palatka. The nearby community is Orange

Springs, FL, 32182. The home boasts vacationrentals.com "Owner Badge" for outstanding feedback from guests. It recently completed a year's worth of

renovations and the construction of a fantastic addition. The

Great Room, built in 1949, sports traditional tongue and groove wood

paneling and a beamed ceiling. The bedrooms have pine paneling as

well. The new house addition includes a fantastic dine-in kitchen,

large laundry/pantry room, a new bath, and fabulous screened porch

overlooking the lake. Large Pella picture windows allow viewing the

lake while cooking, dining, and relaxing. The cottage is near the

Ocala National Forest, numerous springs, the Oklawahwa River, and

the charming towns of McIntosh and Micanopy. The dock is great for

fishing and swimming.

The house is located 2 miles from the intersection of Marion County

Roads 318 & 315 at Orange Springs. Orange Springs sits on the north

western edge of the Ocala National Forest and Lake Oklawaha. The lake place is ideally situated between the larger cities of Ocala, Gainesville, and Palatka. These communities offer a wide range of shopping. Ocala has some of the nation's tiop horse farms, Gainesville has the Univerity of Florida, and Palatka is on the St. John's River just minutes from the beach.****

This house, and it's owner made my 10th trip to Florida the only one I have EVER enjoyed. The house is wonderful. The kitchen has everything you need.

Ed makes the experience that much more wonderful for you. He is a true, honest, gentleman.

If you value a vacation at your owe pace. Lot's of privacy. Nature all around-yet close to the city, this is the best of the best.

I can't praise Ed enough!

Beautiful Location, Helpful Owner

  • 4 of 5
We couldn't get a place in Gainesville due to UF graduation so we decided to spend some relaxing time on the lake. Overall a great stay. The location is beautiful and the house is kept in fantastic shape. Just a couple pieces of advice. It is a good 45-60 minutes to Gainesville depending what part you are going to, so keep that in mind. Also, I would advise checking in with Wanda a few days before you come to let her know what time you will be arriving so that the house is open when you get there. But overall, a great stay and we look forward to hopefully returning at some point. Ed is a great host and very responsive to questions.

Fun, Comfortable, Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our time spent at this Lakefront home was amazing and the owner was awesome to work with. The owner has thought of everything to make your visit all you could want. There were 8 of us, 4 generations and 2 dogs. We celebrated Thanksgiving, 3 Birthdays and Christmas all in 4 days. Made wonderful meals in the well appointed kitchen and played lots of games on the big table for 8. Lots of fun was enjoyed outside by the fire and many smores were eaten. The kids and the dogs loved the big fenced yard. Thanks for creating such a great place for all to enjoy and thanks for being kid and dog friendly. We will plan on returning. Great place for family retreat. Loved all the pretty decorating touches, art and vintage items.....real style!.....even the dishes have class and style! :} The owner has paid attention to details.
