We escaped Irma's wrath, so come and enjoy our rustic 1800+ sq. ft. pine cabin on eighty acres. Up to date with a wide screen TV and plenty of room to relax. Two bedrooms plus a sleeping nook, all fitted with luxurious, hand ironed linens. One complete bath with shower, full kitchen, spacious great room that features a working fireplace, and beautiful country views out every window.

The space

Spend a weekend and enjoy our pond, hiking trails, and country charm. Conveniently located off US 41, with easy access to Inverness, Brooksville, Crystal River, Interstate 75, and more. Tampa International Airport is just an hour away. Plenty of parking space for a trailer, with easy turn-arounds.

Guest access

Nearly half of our 80 acres are accessible to our guests. You can can hike or ride horses on the beautiful wooded trails, stroll down a hill to our hidden spring fed pond to watch the birds, turtles, and alligators, and perhaps do a little "catch and release" fishing from the dock. Visits inside fenced areas where the cattle and donkeys live must be accompanied by a host.

Interaction with guests

We love to meet people from other places and walks of life, and welcome you to our farm. We'll be available to answer any questions, but won't hover - just relax and enjoy!

Other things to note

This gated property is safe and secure. The gates open at 7 AM, and close at 7 PM. Passcode will be provided for extended stays so you can come and go.

Cyclists will love our location, only 1 1/2 miles from the Withlacoochie Trail. Dogs are allowed off leash inside the fenced yard adjoining the house. Beyond the fence - keep all animals on leash. Sorry, no cats due to allergies.

Bring your own groceries or carryout and reheat in full kitchen. Dishes, pots and pans, and utensils provided.

Pictures doo not do this place justice. It is beautiful from the decor to the location. Time of communal room and incredibly inviting. I can't wait to come back for a longer stay.

Thanks Nicholas! You’re welcome back anytime we have an opening. Maybe you can retrieve the disc (looks like a bean bag to me) which was left here on your next visit!

This place is not done justice by the posting. Ruth's home is beautiful and peaceful. The cabin is huge and well equipped. Five can sleep comfortably. Cold a/c and hot water, fully equipped kitchen and extras too. My three year old loved going out to feed the donkeys in the morning and riding with Ruth in her gator. We brought our furry friend and she was right at home. Tucked in the back of the street where it is quiet but easy to find, the cabin has all the comforts of home and more. We spent the days spelunking and swimming in springs, all a short drive away. We loved our stay, it exceeded our expectations and then some. :)

The house is lovely and the farm is too! We enjoyed getting out of town to this setting and being greeted by cows and donkeys. The grounds are beautiful and the fishing was great fun! (Ask first and make sure you catch and release!) Ruth gives you all your privacy, but is gracious and available if needed. We may return again on our next weekend away.

Hi Mary, Thanks for letting me know the TV's secrets, and I will head to the dock and collect your chairs. Hope the winds didn't blow them into the pond!

My husband, granddaughter and I had a wonderful time at Ruth's place. She showed us all around and let my granddaughter help prepare the cow's and donkey's food... and then she took us to their pasture, for an up close experience. The "cabin" is beautiful, large and welcoming. We had a great time. Thank you, Ruth.

Absolute perfection! Great home just in the right area for this trip with a couple friends and myself! Ruth went above and beyond providing water, a nice selection of beer, and a complimentary bottle of wine! She was also very helpful suggesting restaurants and springs to go snorkeling. The front bedroom bed was very comfortable as well! We all will definitely be back for a return visit! Thank you again for your gracious hospitality and sharing your beautiful property!

I really liked staying in this home, it was nice and secluded, which is what I was looking for. The host lives on the property but they're really good about giving you your space. Ruth is also really sweet and helpful, even left us water and coffee to use to make our first morning easier. She's very thoughtful. I would stay again if I had the chance.

Ruth's place was amazing and so was Ruth. She went above and beyond. Beautiful farm and great location for a home base for our excursions kayaking in Crystal River and mountain biking at Croom. Thank you Ruth!

Semi-retired former apparel designer, now cattle rancher. My spare time is spent pulling weeds, redesigning flower beds, and finding ways to thwart the attentions of our rose-eating deer. Oh, and I like to read (after it's too dark to pull weeds.) When I travel, I like to see how other people live, not just stay in 4 or 5 star hotels.
