Lake views are seen from the kitchen, dining/living room and all glass sunroom. There is a flat screened TV and a DVD player. Internet/WIFI, unlimited telephone service and Digital TV are also provided. Table and chairs for outside dining are on the upper deck. There is also a charcoal grill. The property is fenced for medium to small sized pets. A circular driveway leads to covered parking for three vehicles. The white sand beach on a 75 acre lake is large enough for all water sports. Orange Springs (2 miles away) is centrally located for easy access to Ocala, Gainesville, Palatka and Orlando. Beaches on the Atlantic and Gulf are within a drive of an hour or so. Silver Springs theme park is 25 miles away. The University of Florida has a Natural History Museum which boasts a Butterfly Rain Forest. While in Gainesville, another worthwhile visit for the nature lover is Devils Millhopper State Park.
