Year Purchased: 2017

Why this property? This property was to be torn down but we had a vision to restore it. The home was part of an old fishing village. Completely made out of Cypress and Pine. We saved the center of the home but had to tear down the front and back. In doing so we saved the wood to reuse within the home. The living room picture frames, dining room table and kitchen island were made from the wood we salvaged. The front and back porch ceilings are the original ceilings from the parts of the home.
This home was a labor of love for us as weekend worriers and now use it as a weekend getaway.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Beautiful home and view!!

I had a very nice get away!! Everything we would need was there! Had a nice time tubing down Rainbow River! Being on the back porch with a view of the lake was perfect. Thank you so much for this beautiful place.

Lovely cottage

We stayed a week in this nicely done home. It had everything we could need -even nuts to feed the friendly squirrels. Loved the back porch and kayaking. Very clean and comfortable.

Perfect Location

We had a great weekend getaway at the lake house. Took the jet skis all the way up the Rainbow River (the boat ramp is just around the corner from the house). Enjoyed our time fishing from the dock and catching a glimpse of a gator. Utilized the grill a few nights and paid a visit to The Loft down the street another night. This place is super clean and had everything we needed for 4 adults. Thank you!
