House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps
Escape winter's chill in a peaceful lakefront cottage, loaded with country charm. Sunkist Citrus Cottage is a private home, located directly on Floral City Lake, which is in the Tsala-Apopka chain of lakes. This cottage has a 2 bedrooms & 1 bath. The master bedroom offers a direct view of the lake, a king-sized bed, large closet, ceiling fan, and a 36' cable TV. The second bedroom has a bunk set up for 2 people, a closet, and cable TV. The sleeper sofa is located in the Florida room, which is curtained for complete privacy. The living room offers a 50' TV and wood-burning fireplace.
You can swim with the manatees, at nearby Crystal River. Fish or bird-watch from your private dock. Bring your boat or kayak - or rent one, and cruise the miles of unspoiled lakefront. Pick grapefruit, oranges, and tangerines from mature citrus trees, in the yard.
Cyclists will enjoy trekking for miles on the Withlacoochee Biking Trail, which is the largest biking trail in Florida. The trail is located about 5 minutes (by bike) from the house. Hunters will enjoy the opportunities provided in the Withlacoochee State Forest. Golf is nearby, if that is your preference.
You will enjoy the variety of shops in the area. Antiquing is an important pastime, in this historic area. Local artists display fine and folk art in local shops and galleries. Festivals are held several times during the year, to celebrate seasons and holidays.
Historic Floral City is located just South of Inverness and is far enough away from Orlando and Tampa, to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, but is close enough for day trips and amusement park visits. If you are looking to beat the cold this winter, and want to experience the peace and serenity of 'natural' Florida, Sunkist Citrus Cottage is the place for you
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Each of us enjoyed our stay in your area... Keith used the bike trail from one end to the other, I found DynaBody's indoor pool to do my lap swims, and our mini-schnauzer, Snickers, visited the Dog Central Dog Park, in Inverness almost everyday! What a ball for us to watch the big dogs on one side of the fence and the smaller dogs on the other side ... run and bark like crazy 4 leggers.
