Deer in Tall Grass

So you’ve traveled a bit and hit the typical tourist spots, and now you’re seeking more out of your vacation: a nature connection. Perhaps the thought of river cottages, log cabins or some other rustic vacation home retreat beckons you; a campfire ring, cane poles, and catfish, a deer or hawk in the camera frame, the silent paddle curl as the canoe cuts thru the morning mist, the hoot of the owl as night falls and the firefly backdrop as the ghost stories begin. We love the natural energies of our wooded retreat vacation log cabin, river cottage, island home, and saltwater spring getaway, and invite you to recharge and reconnect: take in the natural beauty and rustic surroundings they offer; truly, a unique and refreshing departure from the condo, hotel, concrete, cookie-cutter tract homes of the everyday tourist experience. Florida has much nature to offer, and we invite you to a ringside seat: the deer you see here stood only 15 feet away from the log cabin back door, century oaks embrace the Riverhouse, and the saltwater lagoon connects directly to the Mason Creek inlet to the Gulf of Mexico at the springs retreat and the island home is a perfect getaway from it all. Privately owned, these vacation rentals are affordable adventures in fishing, bird watching, canoeing, hunting, kayaking, biking, and exploration. Each of our Florida vacation rentals is located in the west-central Florida Gulf coast (see the map) area just north of Tampa Bay.


Reconnect with nature and recharge your batteries at one of our wooded retreats.

The Talisman Riverhouse

The Talisman Riverhouse

Central Florida Riverfront

This vacation home rental, embraced by ancient oaks, sits directly on a spectacular stretch of the upper reaches of the Withlacoochee River (where it exits the state forest). Perfect for family gatherings, the home is situated at the end of a lime rock road that forms a private and secluded point on the river. Directly across the river on the other bank is the former Florida Creek Indian Tribal Grounds. This riverfront retreat offers incredible scenic beauty, magical in the simple diversity of the river wildlife and its peaceful surroundings. Whether you find your relaxing pleasure in fishing, boating, kayaking, observing birdlife, or just reading that book you've meant to get to, you'll be delighted with all the opportunities offered by the Riverhouse.

Rustic Comfort Log Cabin

Rustic Comfort Log Cabin

Central Florida Gulf Coast

The log cabin is a 2-bedroom; 1-bath western cedar home nestled among old growth hardwood trees. It sits on ½ acre and is a perfect "getaway to nature" without being too far from town. This charming 1990 log cabin is about 1,000 square feet and can comfortably sleep 6 guests. And you'll still be close enough to go into the city if you want to. We're located between the Gulf Coast area of Crystal River and Homosassa Springs and the major Disney and Central Florida attractions of Orlando. Just 8 miles east of Inverness, Florida, and only a mile away from the famous waters of the Withlacoochee River, which makes it close to all of the major attractions in the Tampa Bay area as well.

Saltwater Springs Retreat

Saltwater Springs Retreat

Gulf of Mexico

Unique and enchanting, this refreshing vacation retreat is located on a salt-water lagoon just off the Mason Creek Inlet to the Gulf of Mexico. The 1,840 square foot, Jacobsen™ home is nestled among native cypress, palm, oak and cedar trees on nearly 1 acre of beautiful land. This property is in an area of secluded, upscale homes and is only a few minutes away from eating, shopping, and sightseeing venues of Homosassa, Florida. In the backyard, you'll find an incredible screened-in tiki hut awaiting your family get-togethers. At night, swap ghost stories (or tales of the big one that got away) around the campfire ring. In the morning watch the mullet jump and the dolphin and manatees play. On the opposite bank of the lagoon is a preservation area that begins the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge.
