  • The house was so much bigger than I expected! What a great deal, especially for the price! It’s a lovely home—clean, comfortable, private. I highly recommend!

    Chelsea2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location! the host was very friendly and accommodating. The cabin was perfect, No bugs or dirt. Comfortable bed and plenty of space. The property was beautiful, lots of trees and even the pond in the back is great for fishing. A bald eagle even landed on the far bank!

    Aaron2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • The host responded quickly and allowed a earlier check in. A great place for the price. I plan on staying there again.

    #cottagecore dreams? Look no further. With "modern rustic" outhouse composting toilet and thoughtfully designed, private outdoor showers, the Garden Cottage is approximately 200 sq. ft., heated and cooled, has a wet bar/kitchenette and a large front porch. Note: We are 2 hours north of Orlando, near Worthington Springs Florida, not Lake Butler of Orlando. Please do not book us if you are seeking a space near Disney World.
    The Garden Cottage was formerly a humble garden shed, but, with the help of our resident Tiny House Expert, Mark, we refurbished the interior with a contemporary rustic design aesthetic. The cottage is best described as a studio space, ideal for a writer on retreat or a couple staging for a trip to the springs. The bathroom and shower are separate from Garden Cottage, which is located on the backside of the building. The newly completed bath house structure features a rainfall shower head with natural surroundings and ample space for separate shower and changing areas. The bathroom includes a deep basin wash sink with a custom-made copper faucet. To help curb wasteful water use of traditional toilet facilities, a composting toilet is used. We will gladly give you a quick tutorial on its use and the benefits of composting. If a composting toilet makes you uncomfortable in any way, please do not book the Garden Cottage. Our Tofu House has conventional plumbing for a comparable price.
    Rural but not completely isolated. We're 20 miles from Gainesville (a major college town), 12 miles from downtown Alachua (a quaint but full-service little town), and 7 miles from Lake Butler.
  • Amazing place to stay and great host

    Briyanna2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay. The living space was great for one or two people. Additionally, the environment of people and animals is unparalleled. Truly a great and unique experience. I hope to go back and visit some time.

    Samual2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re hesitating, DONT. This place is incredible, super cozy and bright. Plus being on a farm comes with it’s animal perks! The compost toilet is easy to use and the shower is beautiful and amazing! Please wear close toed shoes at all times and bring an extra blanket for cold nights. But the place is incredible. 10/10 would recommend

    Kiarylane2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful farm and cottage! What was surprising to me was the cleanliness. There were no bugs inside the cottage or even in the outhouse or the shower. I was a little worried about bugs being in the outhouse but there's really none. Love what they've done with it! I've lived at a farm before and this is definitely an easy farm for newbies. Also, Maureen's partner showed us around the farm a bit and let us meet his adorable dog, which was great :)

    Pauline2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve stayed here 2 times with my gf and we always hate leaving. We love waking up to the roosters crow every morning and hearing all the animals. Can’t wait to come back again!

    Sterling2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here if you want peace and relaxation!

    Lophongla2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were extremely welcoming and generous. They're very happy to help in any way possible. Plus it's a gorgeous property.

    Caleb2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • What a great space! Unique, clean + stylish, and affordable. We weren't so sure how we'd handle the composting toilet or the outdoor shower set-up, but it was totally fine! The AC unit kept the room very comfortable during the day and the space heater worked great for a chilly Florida overnight. We definitely want to come back!

    Cozy farm house in the woods, outside of Gainesville close to Alachua & High Springs. Nice home to get away from city life for a weekend, close to springs, rivers, & many fun year round activities. It's next to our farm, so you can watch cattle graze outside of the window. Also has an enclosed yard & carport. We can be reached by cellphone, via the airbnb app, & at times can be working around the farm. Close to the racetrack for gator nationals & gator games.
    The house is about 20 minutes from the UF stadium & downtown, has a few table top games for guests, the house was recently updated, All the amenities of modern living included in the country. Jeff & I recently bought & fixed this little slice of heaven in the country earlier in 2019. The property on either side of the house have been in Jeff’s family for the last 80 years with his sister living next door, in the older house you see when coming down the dirt road & the big open pasture on 35 acres being Jeff’s and I’s future home.
    The dirt road is private for only residence & guest. So the only people driving down the road are residences or guest. Very quiet, & close to nature, the house is out of Gainesville area however a nice drive from the city lights. There is so much to do in Gainesville, whether its seeing a performance/concert, going to a Gator game, sightseeing the museums or just visiting the Gainesville area. Gainesville is big on having something going on most weekends.There is a park about 4 minutes away & another park off of 441 across from the Walmart. Farmer's market on Saturdays.

    Nice little lake house with a quiet safe environment. The house is simple and meant as a getaway from the hustle of the city. It has a little lake access with a canoe and kayak available for your enjoyment. The area offers a quiet "getaway". The home has three little bedroom, kitchenette, 1.5 bathrooms, living room and a small dinning area looking at the lake. The hot tub is available with advance notice.
    The little house comes with enough amenities to provide for a comfortable stay. It has one queen bed, a single and a bunkbed. The house has a full shower bathroom, a spacious living room, queen bed, two twin beds, and a small kitchen. The kitchenette comes with everything you'll need. The lakeside porch is private and serene. The back yard is partly fenced for midsized n small dogs. The house is kid friendly.
    Keystone is a small town with the small town feel. Things to do are bike ride, atv, fishing, hunting, bird watch, star gazing, movies, and much more. Keystone Heights is conveniently located less than an hour from Gainesville, Orange Park, and Jacksonville. There are several local grocery stores, a fishing store, cvs, walgreens, liquor stores, Friday night band, other local pubs and restaurants.
  • Another great stay. Nice spot and good host.

    Thomas2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Jason was great. The home was clean and felt much bigger than it was. Very cozy for a small family. Very cool lake in the back. Highly recommend!

    Raul2019-11-08T00:00:00Z

  • Wonderful, peaceful, no-frills tiny house by a gorgeous lake. Each sunset is better than the last. This quiet respite was exactly what I needed to escape the January/February Northeast winter. Rom’s responses to minor issues were quick and helpful.

    Lorraine2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience from start to finish! Loved taking the kayaks out on the lake! And having a fire under the stars each night! Would definitely recommend this place, if your looking for a quiet getaway! Excellent hosts! Would stay here again!

    Eric2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at this rustic lake cabin. Ann maintained excellent communication throughout and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a terrific time. The view from the cabin was beautiful. We especially enjoyed taking the kayaks out to explore the lake. The cabin was very clean and had just enough essentials to be comfortable. We went into Gainesville each day (for the UF bat caves, massages, vegan restaurants, the Florida Museum of Natural History and the Tu Vien a Nan Buddhist sculpture gardens) but also enjoyed the antique and flea market in the town of Waldo and then returning to this lakeside retreat. We would for sure recommend and stay again.

    Teresa2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and an amazing view of the lake. Would recommend!

    Eric2019-08-01T00:00:00Z

  • Ron's place was absolutely 100% perfect little Air BnB. The cleanliness of the place was superb and top notch. Hes added alot of little touches that really make the place feel like home. Two TVs with Roku on them made the stay very nice. Bed sheets were cleaned and shower was plentifully hot. Nice quiet neighborhood. 100% will be back on my travels.

    Matt2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great budget stay! Lots of nature in the area. . .MULTIPLE lakes with parks, state parks, hiking trails and natural springs all in 45 minutes or less from this location. Keep in mind, the RV is an older model, however it was obvious it has been thoroughly cleaned. The kitchen is a little understocked, bring your own things if you plan to cook a lot. Ron is a super nice guy and great host, we had a great time exploring the area!

    Brent2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The rental is about 5 miles south of Lake Butler, in a quiet country setting. I am an avid bike rider and found numerous bike trails nearby in all directions. I highly recommend driving to Trenton and riding the bike trail to Old Town. Along the way you will ride over the Suwannee River on an old railroad bridge. Very cool. Ron, the host, was outstanding in all aspects during my stay.

    Rick2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Lake Butler, FL, United States

    The Peacock Perch is named after the four peacocks that roam about . The suite is connected to an occupied house by a locking breezeway. The perch is situated atop a hill looking out on beautiful Lake Rosa. We swim, fish and boat regularly in the beautiful clear sand bottom lake. The walk from the cabin to the lakefront is down hill and semi steep, but terraced. You will enjoy sipping wine on the screen porch among the deafening frog and cricket sounds.
    The Perch has an open studio layout. A queen bed, a pull out sofa, and a twin bed are all in the common living space. The bathroom and laundry room are separate from the common studio area. We offer a fully functioning kitchen with A gas range cooktop and oven. There are also a microwave and an electric kettle for making tea and french-press coffee. The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea, cream sugar and ice. There is a kitchen sink and a full sized refrigerator. A charcoal grill is provided upon request. The perch features four sets of adjacent french doors which open out to the screen porch. There is no boat ramp to the lake, however you could easily bring kayaks or canoes if you wish. I also have two older kayaks and a paddleboat available for guests. There is a lake front beach area, as well as a small floating dock for guest use. We do not observe gators in this lake, however this is Florida so always be on the lookout for wildlife. We regularly swim in the lake, and will be sharing the lakefront space with you on occasion. The Perch is 5 minutes to a Melrose grocery store and 10 min to Keystone Heights grocery and liquor stores. There are various restaurants in Melrose and Keystone. Check the guidebook for suggestions! We are located 30 minutes to Gainesville , One hour and 15 min to Jacksonville, One and a half hour to St Augustine beach.
    Melrose offers unique small town flavor. Chiappinis is an old time full service only gas station which also features bands and the occasional food truck on weekends. They love to give free bait & tackle to young kids, and are the friendliest guys in town! Blue Water Bay is a fixture destination offering fine dining and a full liquor bar. One side is a bar with a few booths and tvs, the other side is white tablecloths. For the most casual atmosphere Gator Bait is a great place to catch sports on TV. In the neighboring town of Keystone is Brooklyn Brothers Pizza a great pizza place with some family friendly night life. For breakfast and lunch Clyde’s cafe in Keystone is our favorite small town country diner.
  • The Peacock Perch was clean and very quite. First our need for the night. Pretty lake and really looks like old Florida.

    Dennis2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Of all the places I have stayed at in the past, Clea's place was my favorite. It is so enchantingly beautiful and serene. I loved the orange trees and the view of the lake was great. This is a wonderful place to unwind and refresh. It's very cozy and has a great old Florida feel. The peacocks were fun. They kept looking at our chrome bumper and pecking at their reflections. I loved this place so much that I didn't want to leave it for a second. I will definitely be booking this place again!!

    Lauren2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Matt 2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

  • Perfect place to stay in the area. Clea thought of everything! Highly recommended.

    James2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We felt fortunate to have discovered the Peacock Perch cabin. It was as presented by Clea on AirB&B. The cabin has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen allows for daily food preparation. We ate "in" the majority of our week-long stay. During our stay the Florida temperatures were very cool and we were thankful that there was adaquet heat available. There were plenty of towels, and clean bedding. Communication with Clea was easy. Some of the other features we used were the screened porch, WiFi, the washer and dryer, and the paddle boat. Overall, it was a great stay.

    Cecilia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wow - what an oasis Peacock Perch is! The scenery is so tranquil and beautiful and you have a crystal clear lake right in the back yard. It's an animal lovers paradise (the peacocks are amazing!!). The locals in Melrose are so welcoming and Clea's recommendations were exactly what we were looking for (check out her guidebook). The house was incredible value - full kitchen and washer / dryer as well as loads of space for a couple to hang out. We really want to go back if Clea will have us :) 10/10 best air bnb!

    Emma2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, great spot. It was so quiet and peaceful. The board games were a nice touch to play with the 12 year old that joined us on trip to play Disc Golf. Would love to come back again and just enjoy the serenity.

    Private cottage close to Keystone Heights and Melrose. Many local lakes make this a fisherman's dream, and it's 3 miles from either of the Lake Santa Fe public boat ramps and beach, while gas and grocery stores are within a half mile. Both towns offer a variety of dining, shopping and activities like farmer's markets and art walks. The location is also convenient to Gainesville for Gator games and UF events (23 miles from stadium). Rates can be flexible for longer multi-month accommodations.
    The cottage has plenty of parking for a boat or RV (no hookup) with a large yard and patio for grilling and dining. While only one bedroom, it's 600 square feet and spacious enough to sleep 4 with a day bed/trundle bed in the common areas. The bathroom has a full sized tub/shower combo and is a jack-and-Jill configuration where it is accessible from either the bedroom or living room. Lots of amenities including a kitchen with all the cooking essentials, coffee, tea and sugar/creamer. All ages are welcome, with pack-and-play and baby gate available upon request. Smart TVs in the living room and bedroom have built in chromecast, and Xfinity internet allows for fast streaming on most platforms, just bring your login info (Netflix provided). There is also an enclosed exterior laundry room off of the carport just a couple steps out of the side door.
    The neighborhood is rural, safe and quiet, with either Melrose or Keystone Heights 3 miles away. There is also a large grocery store, Harvey’s, 1 mile from the cottage.
  • This place was such a lovely place to stay. Perfect for our trip.

    Beckie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jolleen's place is super quiet and independent. The location is very convenient to reach either Melrose or Keystone Heights and the access roads and the driveway are paved which is a plus and not a given in the area. The AC and the heating system work very well. The place is spacious and very well appointed.

    Brigitte 2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Jolleen's place was our first Airbnb experience and it was great! We were there for almost two months. I really can't say enough about how thoughtful, accommodating, and kind Jolleen is. The cottage was immaculate and exactly as described. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, cooking utensils, glassware, and dishes; and they were all sparkling clean. There were sponges, dish soap, baggies, garbage bags, paper towels, etc. Basically everything you need for a kitchen. The other rooms were equally well-appointed. There were lovely touches throughout the cottage - you can tell that Jolleen has the comfort of her guests in mind. She even left us a basket filled with "goodies," and surprised us with biscotti and a lovely bottle of wine during the holidays. Jolleen's response time was great!! She also provided great suggestions for local activities. If we are in this part of Florida again, we will definitely stay with Jolleen!! Thank you, Jolleen!!

    Maryellen2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jolleen was a wonderful host! She went above and beyond for us. It is a lovely cottage.

    Jeffrey2019-11-29T00:00:00Z

  • This cottage was very comfy and clean. Perfect space for a family or couple. Everything was exactly as listed with some lovely extra touches like the snacks and coffee. Would recommend for anyone to stay

    Arianna2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Cottage was amazing! Perfect place for a weekend getaway with family. Jolleen had everything we needed and more. She was very responsive and super sweet. I’d recommend this place to anyone.

    Jenna2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Jolleen’s place was just what I was looking for! It was cute, comfortable, spacious and had absolutely everything you could need and then some. Jolleen was extra helpful and considerate as a host. When I told her there was a possibility I might need to extend my stay because of my parent’s health issues, she went ahead and blocked out the dates just in case. How amazing is that? I would highly recommend this home to anyone staying in the area. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back!

    Cozy two bedroom bungalow on Lake Geneva in Keystone Heights FL. Great place to un-plug and view some beautiful sunsets over the lake. The 1 acre property gives you plenty of privacy. Large deck facing the lake has a BBQ grill and large table that seats six comfortably.
    This cute two bedroom bungalow in Keystone Heights is just 30 minutes from the University of Florida. The beach at St Augustine Florida is only 45 minutes away. Some of our favorite places to dine in the area include McHenry's, Blue Water Bay and for breakfast and lunch The Florida Cracker.
  • Cozy Little Gem on the Lake! My wife and I wanted to get away to a quieter area to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of our world, and reconnect with each other. This cozy place on a lake was just what we needed. The house was very clean and full of thoughtful touches. From the CD player with the eclectic collection of CDs, to the cozy rockers set in front of the fireplace, from the inviting raised deck to the amazing sunset view of the lake in the living room, the house dares you to sit back and relax. The owners were very responsive and accommodating. You will not be disappointed!

  • It’s a cabin by a lake with amazing wildlife. It’s in a tropical part of the world so be prepared to share your space with lovely lizards and don’t walk barefoot down the garden to the lake as there are seeds with spikes that look a little bit like World War One sea mines and they will cut you. What you are getting is peace, wildlife, amazing sunsets, and all the comforts away from home that you could need. We canoed and fished and soaked in the tranquility of this lovely location. We would return in a heartbeat

  • If you want a slice of Heaven this is your place to go. I personally need some alone time to sort out my thoughts and refill/recharge. This place is absolutely beyond words - amazing.

    Kathleen2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing! It was a little cold but there was heaters so it was okay and it was clean. There was kayaks and canoes available for use. I will definitely be coming back! Marcus was a fast responder and this trip was way better than expected. Can’t wait to come back! This weekend trip was a 10/10

    Sydney2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Honestly you can expect peace out of this place. I enjoyed sitting on the kayaks watching the sun go down.

  • This was the perfect getaway for my boyfriend and I. The heat kept us warm and when it got too warm it was nice to be able to open the door without getting the home dirty. Huge backyard overlooking the lake that was the most amazing thing to sip your coffee to in the morning. It always felt like you had so much privacy but also in a safe and secure area. The listing was so easy to get to and enter. The listing was also super clean. Many moments I was amazed at the cleanliness feeling like a hotel. My boyfriend and I packed stuff we realized quickly we didn't even need! So much cute additions to help make our stay feel the most welcome and seamless. Would totally stay here again!

    Brandy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at the lake house! It was nice and quiet, really pretty lake, and was a great home away from home. Had a beautiful newly renovated kitchen with everything we needed to grill and cook.

    Danielle2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was the second time we've stayed at this lake house and the third time we've stayed with Steve as our host. This cottage is comfortably furnished and includes everything you would need to make your vacation great. Though we didn't do any cooking at the cottage, it appears to have everything you would need (including some spices) to cook. There is a Keurig coffee pot as well as a regular coffee pot, refrigerator with ice maker, Direct TV, gas grill on the deck, screened porch, washer and dryer, ceiling fans in the bedrooms, shower with plenty of hot water and much, much more. There are two bathrooms. And the view of the lake is awesome! We were in the area to visit family and this little cottage was so convenient for us. There is a grocery store nearby along with some restaurants if you want to eat out. This will be our go-to lodging when we visit the area. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future!

    Stay on the farm with all the comforts of a regular guest house! The Tofu House comes with small kitchenette and dining area, full bathroom, and "overflow" room with an additional full size bed and its own AC unit. You'll be cozy and comfortable, but only a short stroll from the horse barn, chicken coop, and duck pond. There is a lot to explore here, so come make a weekend of it!
    Built in the 1950s, this former industrial building was originally part of a small chicken farm. In the 70s, the Prins family (who now live next door to us) purchased the property to build a home. After settling in, they remodeled the chicken barn and building to create a small-scale tofu manufacturing facility. Thus was the beginning of Lecanto Tofu - a backyard brand that experienced overwhelming success until it was ultimately acquired by an international food brand! Hence the name "Tofu House," -- a reference that started as a joke while buying the property in April of 2017 -- but in the way of nicknames, it kind of stuck.
    Rural but not completely isolated. We're 20 miles from Gainesville (a major college town), 12 miles from downtown Alachua (a quaint but full-service little town), and 7 miles from a country hamlet with all the essentials -- but no fancy restaurants.
  • Not fancy, but still perfect. The animals are super friendly and loved to be rubbed and pet. There is enough space for everyone. There are little bits of history all throughout the house.

    Michelle2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Maureen’s place because we had to attend a funeral. The place was simple, clean, a very peaceful. I have no complaints. Wish I could have stayed longer.

    Ginger2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We found at Maureen a place like nowhere else! A corner of nature where we stopped overnight and of which we have fond memories.

    Michele2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great for a place that's not home.

    Stephan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Tofu House. We were there for a family loss but it was a nice way to wind down being on the farm. We all enjoyed the interaction with the animals and all the guests were very friendly. We will definitely stay again when visiting family!

    Denise2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great when you just need a bed for a night or two!

    Richard2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Maureen's place was a wonderful spot in the country with lots of farm animals to watch interact with each other. Beds were nice and comfortable, our house was clean, and just the right cooling and heating that we needed.

    Terri2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Dannielle2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we arrived, we knew that our stay would be everything we hoped, and more! Jim and Betty June greeted us, along with sweet Abby, their beautiful black lab. James showed us into the apartment which was exactly as described, sparkling clean, cozy, and comfortable. And they had even provided fresh baked cookies!! Our party was made up of our daughter and son in-law, their two children, our other grandson, and my husband and me. If you're in a group like ours, and you require complete privacy when sleeping, this might not work for you. But, we had no problem with it!! The kids loved the arcade room, and it was so awesome to introduce their generation to pinball machines!! We spent most of Saturday in Gainesville, about a 20-25 minute drive away, at a Gator game. James even offered to drive us in, but we had already made parking arrangements. The property is beautiful, and you won't be sorry if you rise early and catch the sunrise from the dock. We can't wait to go back, hopefully soon!!

    Deanna2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best B&B I’ve stayed in ever! What a great host and hostess. Very comfortable living space with plenty of space to sleep extra bodies. Modest kitchenette and sitting area for dining in. Fantastic lakeside view for your morning coffee or just an afternoon of relaxation. Did I mention the pinball room? My, my, my! What a blast that was! Haven’t had that much fun playing since I was in high school. These hosts are amazing and aim to please. If you’re headed to Gainesville and want a quiet place with just a little drive, you have got to try this place! Thanks for a great stay!!!!

    Ozone cleaned! This is a well appointed 2 bedroom 1 bath lake front cottage with a full eat in kitchen, breakfast bar, dining area, screened porch, and multiple decks. There is internet, and satellite, with multiple flatscreens. Washer dryer, and Covered Carport. The bathroom is located off of the queen bedroom with access only through the bedroom.
    This may be a small cottage, but it is packed with resort features ! Wake up to fresh coffee of choice from a Keurig coffee maker, watch tv on a 40" flatscreen, or just enjoy the breeze on a beautiful solid wood rocker on the screen porch.
    Keystone is a quiet place, where people love the peace and tranquility. But, it's 30 mins from Gainsville and the University or Florida, 45 Mins from Jacksonville, and an Hour to Historic St. Augustine. Enjoy!
  • This cabin was just the right size for our group. The deck and screened in porch were great for morning coffee and winding down at the end of the day. The location was perfect. Close enough to everything, but far enough away. Steve was very attentive and made sure he was very open to communication.

    Karyn2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a home run. The location was very unique for north Florida the drive down the hill to the lake house was a surprise. Very quiet area and picturesque as well. The wrap around, screened in back porch was a wonderful place to sit and relax. We will most definitely want a return stay.

    Steven2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful view. This cottage has all of the amenities one could ask for. The surrounding area was peaceful and truly relaxing. The beds are soft and comfortable.What I liked most was having coffee on the back deck overlooking Bedford lake.

  • My husband, college-age son, and I spent a most relaxing Thanksgiving at Steve's place. The place is so cozy and comfortable. The view of the lake is beautiful. And the kitchen is the largest and most well-equipped of any AirBnB we've stayed at. Steve was a gracious host and checked in to see if everything was ok. The weekend was topped off by the bald eagle that landed in the backyard just before we left! I hope our travels take us back someday.

She owns an adorable house next to a lake, and at night, you can see all kinds of stars in the sky. Her home is very clean and her waffles are amazing! If we came back to the area, we would love to stay with her again.

Situated about midway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, Melrose is a small (approximately 3500 residents), charming, unincorporated community once famous in the 1800's as a tourist destination, now known for its growing art community. This unique area in North Central Florida with its many beautiful lakes has been attracting visitors and residents for over 135 years.
  • Beautiful home on a lovely, tranquil lake.

  • What a unique spot Karen and Dean have. Dean greeted me and gave me a tour. The lake and back yard are wonderful! My favorite, besides the lake, was the massage chair. I could sit in that all day! They have a hot tub, fire pit, dock, lake, billiards room, back porch, back deck, front porch. So many places to relax. Bedroom is nice and comfy and there is a pocket door to close off guest rooms and bath if extra privacy is needed. They are very gracious hosts and I would gladly visit again.

    Sarah2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Karen and Dean's house was sparkling clean and in a very scenic location with a beautiful view of Lake Sante Fe in the back. The hosts did everything possible to make me feel at home away from home. If you are considering a stay here by all means book it. You cant go wrong.

    Dan2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place with a cozy room! We will definitely return to Lake Santa Fe!

    Dominique2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The room is located just inside the front door with a bathroom nearby in the hallway. You have access to come and go as you need, also access to the game room, kitchen and family room. Karen and Dean were very nice and helpful for anything we needed. Offered us coffee in the morning and provided feedback for GameDay in Gainesville. The waterfront area at the house is beautiful. This is a very easy drive to Gainesville and St. Augustine....as well as other locations in Florida. The house was very clean and we ensured we were quiet when we came in to ensure we didn’t wake anyone. Definitely recommend.

    Erin2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Karen and Dean made us feel very welcome! The home is beautiful and the 2 acres on the lake is absolutely gorgeous! We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely revisit again in the future!

    Kelly2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is like a Paradise! From the beginning until our checkout moment. Everything was perfect, Dean and Karen are awesome hosts, the house is beautiful and very comfortable, but the backyard with the lake is the best! We recommend The Lake House to everybody, and for sure we will visit them again! Thank you and Go Gators!!!!!

    Gloria2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Melrose Retreat was an amazing weekend stay. The sunsets were absolutely breathtaking. There is so much to do in the surrounding area. Whether you want a quiet place to relax or to stay while visiting the springs or catching a game, this place will meet those needs! Karen and Dean are wonderful hosts and I am so happy I was able to stay here!

  • Stayed here for a week work trip and it was a very peaceful stay out on a beautiful lake, if your looking for something secluded in the outdoors this is a great stay!

  • Swan Lake is absolutely beautiful. If you are looking for peace, there's nowhere better. I am heartbroken to leave but am definitely going to make it a priority to come back soon. Marcus and his property manager Kelly are truly awesome people and very accommodating. You will be amazed at how breathtaking this property is.

    Cadee2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect hideaway from the world distractions

    Kidd2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great experience. It’s in a beautiful, rustic lakeside setting so you really feel you are away from the rat race, but the cabin is so comfortable and well-appointed that you never feel like you are roughing it. An excellent experience!

    Fred2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • It is a really nice place if you want to step away from noise and stress of the city. Cabins are ok, decoration seems familiar, I am from Guatemala... access to the Lake and sorroundings are good, didn't run into any issues with bugs or animals. Cabins are small but comfy... I enjoyed the stay!

    Lisa2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We spent our honeymoon at Amber's place, it was the absolute best Airbnb we have been too, they had met all our expectations plus! We are looking forward to spending our anniversary there too. We highly recommend her place, nothing bad to say, five plus stars! She went over and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Beautiful sunsets too on the lake, very relaxing.

    Monica2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

Quite neighborhood with enough parking for everyone in the driveway great big back yard with a long dock a nice place to watch the sunset. Will Stay Again !! **And Oh Yea Amber is a Super Host **

    Wayne2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very charming cottage on a lake. A quiet, relaxing place. Very clean. Amber made us feel like neighbors next door.I can't recommend staying there enough.

    Honey2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet and relaxing. The yard was much bigger than what the pictures showed, which was nice for our frisbee throwing sons. The hosts were nice enough to let us use their kayaks. The bird life was a nice surprise. We viewed, cardinals, robins, hawks, all kinds of Florida specific birds and wetlands birds. It was an unexpected delight.

    Daniel2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amber was so friendly and kind and the house was stunning and has a lovely dock and comfy beds. Cannot recommend this space enough! Xx

    Steph2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious house with everything we needed for the perfect weekend stay. The house has fantastic views of the lake and was extremely spacious. Also, perfect distance from the University of Florida campus. Amber was accommodating, helpful, and kind. We will definitely be back.

  • She is a great host. There is lots of things for families to do and keep kids busy. Games, both inside and outside, books, etc. Front porch on temperate days. This was a 'working' stay so we left early and arrived late each day. But having a 'home away from home' with access to hot showers and a clean bed was welcome after each long day for us. It is a great place for families with courteous and responsible kids as guests.

    Karen2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so cozy with everything you could possibly think of..this place is totally equipped with everything for your stay!!..we loved it!!..we give it a 10!!

    Bruce2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location with all imaginable recreation amenities provided. Managed to pretty much win me over on the whole Airbnb concept. Would strongly suggest to anyone.

    Patrick2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Darci's place is an absolute gem. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful but also central to activities and easily accessible to Gainesville and Micanopy. Darci has the gift of hospitality and is a wonderful host. Everything we could have possibly wanted or needed - and then some! She thought of everything and was so easy to work with. We very much enjoyed meeting her on the day we arrived. Our weekend was so relaxing and comfortable and we hope to spend a week there sometime in the not-too-distant future!

    Kathy2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a weekend or sometime away from home, look no further. This place is a home away from home located in one of the most beautiful places in Florida. See real old North Florida and enjoy one of the best lakes in the state Lake Santa Fe. If you in the mood for the lake there’s fishing poles, kayaks, and tube floats, even a canoe. The home is plush for a lake place and has all the amenities from coffee and waffle makers to a big screen tv with digital satellite. Kitchen is great to cook in, all new appliances. Beds are very comfy. Big batch room, lovely screened in front porch with seating and fans. No complains from me. Love the place!

    Christopher2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Darci's place. It's a quick and easy drive from the UF campus so our commute to watch the game was no problem at all. The combination of price and proximity to Gainesville FL is hard to beat. The home had everything you needed and more, and was a very charming little lake house. Highly recommend!

    Brandon2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a weekend getaway this is the perfect spot. The place is stocked with goodies and really has everything you need to enjoy a lake house + extras. Lake Santa Fe is spring fed so the water is very nice. Darci provides kayaks, a canoe, and tube float so you can really get the most out of the lake. The place is clean, comfortable, and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are nice and there is a charcoal grill in the back that’s perfect for cooking some real BBQ. Finally, Darci is an excellent host and makes you feel right at home. 10/10 A+++

    Christopher2019-09-26T00:00:00Z

    A beautiful three acres can be all yours for a true camping experience. Escape into a wonderful world of shady tree canopies where natural springs trickle down to a navigable creek perfect for canoes and fishing. There are several guest moderated changes and additions to the property....guests who would like to release their inner child and artist to the evolving camping project are warmly encouraged to :) Bring a tent or tie a hammock and take it all in while the breeze rocks you to sleep. The property is located close enough to a small town to easily refill on supplies or ice or even hit a local restaurant if you forgot to bring food lol Stay for one night, or as many as you like. Feel welcome to request special offers for numerous day stays. Guests are required to remove all trash and liter before check out. Please ask any questions before reserving your stay. Thank you for your considerate and I look forward to hearing about your adventure!!!
    The neighbors are few and far between...this is a fairly secluded area considering the close proximity to town.
  • Peaceful. Lovely little stream. Big tree as an umbrella when you’re under. Very cool on a full moon.

    Leo2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful

    Leo2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Is only a hike away from the road and has good grounds for tents. Beautiful view to the river !

    Juan2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great mini retreat from the world. It’s about a 4 minute walk to the actual campsite from where the entrance is but definitely worth it. The area is really beautiful with a lovely stream in the middle and the campsite has a hammock and other special quirks. Would definitely return and recommend to others!

    Fedora2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a very special place in my heart. I have so many great memories from my visits. Hope to come back soon.

    Roger2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!

    Michael2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing. Definitely not for inexperienced campers. Camp site is about .25 mile down hill so climbing back up with all your belongings was an assbusting experience. No bathroom or showers so definitely need to know what your doing campwise. Beautiful relaxing spot, definitely recommend to anyone.

    Angel2019-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for deep woods camping while still being able to run to the store, this is your spot! You get the impression that you're the only ones there for miles but there are neighbors to either side, they just arent visible through the trees. As a previous review stated, there are dogs nearby that bark a lot at night, but since we have a dog it didn't bother us that much. And they settled down about midnight. I will say you should be physically able to handle a decent hill hiking from your car to the campsite, but it's more than worth the exercise for the beautiful view and peace you'll find. Alexis has several wonderful goodies such as some tools you need, toilet paper if you forgot some and tiki torches to help with bugs. The hammock was our absolute favorite part, gifting me a nap that lasted over an hour, a rarity for a mom of 4! All in all it is a fantastic deal, and we'd recommend to anyone!

  • Angela's place was just great for my aunts who were visiting us from out of town. Her place is right in the middle of town, so close to virtually everything. The pictures and descriptions were accurate, and the check-in process and communication were professionally rendered. I'd recommend Angela's place to anyone needing to stay in quiet, safe, in town spot in the Keystone Heights area.

  • Such a nice place to stay during the hot Florida summer to enjoy the lake. Good beach area for little ones to play in the water. Great view of the lake from the huge deck. I already want to go back!

  • The lake house is absolutely adorable. It's very well furnished and our family of five were perfectly comfortable. The lake itself is gorgeous and we enjoyed being able to bring our boat. It was a little tricky actually getting it down to the water but once we made it down it was very easy to load and unload. I loved drinking my coffee (and later wine...) on the deck and watching the view of the lake. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous!!

    Cozy, quiet space to relax and enjoy beautiful Lake Santa Fe. Perfect for a 2-3 day getaway. Spacious 1 room, 1 bath lakeside studio cottage at the historic former Buddy's Landing site on Lake Santa Fe in Earleton. Private and gated with direct lake access. A peaceful, quiet space to unplug and get away from the daily chaos. Use of the private boat launch for a small additional fee ($20). (Currently 6 cottages for rent. Perfect for multiple families to hang together on the lake!).
    Located on west side of beautiful Lake Santa Fe about 30 minutes from UF, and convenient to Gator Nationals (approx 10 miles). Private gated lake access with private boat ramp for launching your boat or jet skis for a small additional fee of $20. Beautiful lakeside backdrop for special events (family reunions, weddings, baby or bridal showers, holiday parties, and meetings) from banquet space available for rent at fantastic prices with comfortable accommodations for 40-60 guests.
    The Boathouse at Lake Santa Fe Harbor is located in Alachua County in Earleton, Florida. Melrose and Waldo are about 5 miles away (opposite directions), Starke is about 15 miles, and Gainesville (UF) is about a 30 minute drive. The Boathouse is a great place to get away, unplug and relax for a wholesome day at the lake. Read a book, fish, stick your toes in the sand and chill out.
  • The cabin is lovely and rustic and is right next to a peaceful and serene lake. Great place for a weekend getaway.

  • This is a lovely, very clean, nicely decorated, inviting space. We very much enjoyed our brief stay there, and found many nice touches to make the stay more comfortable. It is set in a beautiful environment with great views of the lake. We found Julia to be a very responsive and accommodating host. We would happily return to this location.

    Barbara2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I came down from Atlanta to attend a UF football game (about 30 min away). We were pleased that the location is in a quiet, gated area and the cottage was cute, clean, and comfortable. The host greeted us upon arrival and even provided a nice bottle of wine and offered local tips. We had a great weekend and would recommend this cottage!

    Heather2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! Julia was wonderful and responsive. I enjoyed being outside the city, especially since it was a game day. It was a quick drive to where I needed to go! Place was clean and nicely decorated.

    Jill2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic get away location. From the time we entered the private gate we felt very at home, relaxed and comfortable. The cottage was adorable and well stocked with thought to every need a visitor may have. They provided teas, hot cocoa, coffee, and fresh blueberries were waiting for us. We brought our boat and the private boat ramp was so convenient. We could jump in and go and return for quick breaks throughout the day. The owners are very kind and thoughtful, with their guests comfort number one. The beautiful sunrises and sunsets on Lake Santa Fe make this such a special place to visit. The town of Melrose nearby has a few restaurants and local grocery store, some retail business for vacation needs. We loved our visit and can’t wait to plan another visit soon!

    Alice2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved the night in the cabin. Wish we could’ve stayed for longer. My wife and I came to Gainesville to see a concert at the stadium and Julia arranged to drop off and pick-up making it very easy for us as we do not know the area. Awesome place. Nice and quiet cabin on the lake after a loud concert - perfect! Will stay again! Go Noles

    Jason2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great rustic get away, I was able to launch my Kayak from the boat launch and caught fish and the cabin was well designed and well stocked with linens, some coffee had a microwave, fridge with a freezer (micro type) pullout couch. It did get cold, so if you think to bring a space heater if it is forecasted to be cold, only has an A/C. Very clean, truly enjoyed the stay and plan to stay again in the future.

    Adorable 2/1 home on two thirds of an acre on Private all-purpose Swan Lake. Located on a paved road. Swim in the clear water lake. Catch some of the huge fish. There's even a slalom course for the water skiing enthusiasts. Large open porch as well as a spacious screen porch. Can comfortably sleep 9, but remember it's only one bathroom. Just fully remodeled top to bottom. Boat ramp on the property. Fire pit for s'mores and storytelling. Very private and appealing. Come and enjoy! You'll be back!
    We recently renovated this cozy house and decided to make it more open by knocking down some walls! Now you can see the lake when you stand in the kitchen. Not sure if my favorite space is the front room with all the natural light and high ceilings, the screened in porch, or the claw foot tub that’s great for an Epsom salt detox soak or just plan bubbles (we provide both 😉)
    Located only 25 miles from Gainesville, FL, this property offers the best of both worlds (nature and city life). A perfect get away for a Gators Fan!
  • Just a few hours from Dayton and the St Augustine. Very nice private beach, fishing. Camp fire is a nice touch. The views from the screen in porch was delightful. The cottage is charming.

    Melissa2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Swan Lake! Adorable little home. Super peaceful.

    Madison2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Scott and Aimee we t above and beyond with this place. They literally thought of everything, from a set up campfire to board games to fresh eggs from their chickens. We can’t wait to come back again. This was everything we expected and much more. The place was super clean, quaint, and thoughtfully put together. We had the best weekend on the lake, it was so perfect and peaceful.

    Abby2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • I found all of the previous positive reviews to be pretty much spot on. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

    Brian2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Tranquility Cove and we enjoyed it just as much the second time around. Scott and Aimee are very responsive hosts and go to great efforts to make their getaway clean and comfortable.

    Nancy2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot beat the peace and tranquility of this property. It was the perfect place for my husband, myself and our dogs before moving day!

    Tracy2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Get out of your car and instantly you'll start to unwind and relax. Your cares melt away in this unique hideaway spot. Breathtaking sunrises and sun sets. You won't want to leave!

    Thomas2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for letting us make last minute plans and for your generosity. It was nice to have a homey, quaint place to go in the evening to crash after some long, emotional days as we grieved my father. Wish the weather had been better to enjoy the water and beautiful outdoors. The fresh eggs from your chickens were delicious!
