Surrounded by Crystal Clear Springs


Home Description

5 Acres of wilderness surround this simple block house, clean, only 10 years old, large deck set up for your vacation. Owned by Bird's Underwater Dive Center in Crystal River, home of swim with manatees tours, this is our 3rd listing in one of our favorite playgrounds. Ginnie Springs Resort is only 12 miles away a 200 plus acre park along the Sante Fe River. Ichnetucknee Springs Park, Manatee Springs State Park, Little River Springs and many other public access sites within 20 miles. This is cave diving country, but awesome for snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, an absolute nature get-away but only 40 minutes from Gainesville and 30 min. to Lake City. This large concentration of Florida Spring sites is unique to central Florida. 72 degrees all year around, there are many public access sites that make this get-a-way a nature experience. House is located off of County Road 138th, 2.3 miles down a county maintained dirt road which ends at a small public park. Fish and Wildlife manages thousands of acres to the west, and down river you will see untamed State Forests.We have two light weight kayaks at the rental unit for your use, but you will have to carry or transport them on your car a distance of 2 blocks. In the evening you will hear the owls, coyotes, and deer. There is no limit to the stars. Highly recommend that you check out for a day of kayaking, picnics, bike riding, snorkeling, tubing, and/or volleyball.
