The house is located right on Lake Rousseau. This lake is approximately 12 miles long and averages 1 to 1.5 miles wide. The Withlacoochee River runs through Lake Rousseau and helps create what the older locals call the Back Country. The river is unmarked but the lake is with red and green channel markers. It is very important to stay between the markers because the lake is full of cypress stumps, but the stumps create great fish habits and predator hideouts. The lake and river system connects to the Rainbow River which is a 7 mile long river with crystal clear water. It is a very popular river for the tubers. Of course, you can enjoy the entire water system right from your dock. Bring your boat and paddle craft! You are also welcome to carefully use, at your own risk, the 2 canoes and 2 kayaks that are available during your stay.
This is an ideal getaway from the city and the noise.
The house has a cozy and warm feeling to it and your stay there will be very relaxing. There is cable TV, WiFi, stereo and a smart TV in case you would like to access Netflix, etc. There are also board games and cards available.
This house in the country is located right in the middle of two towns. To the east 8 miles, is Dunnellon, which is well known for its leisurely ride down the Rainbow River, and down south about 11 miles, there is the Crystal River, known for its Gulf of Mexico fishing, scalloping, a golf course, and numerous fresh water springs.
