Deer Cottage

Deer Cottage is a delightful two bedroom, one bath cabin that sits on a forested corner lot that abuts up against the Osceola National Forest. In addition to the deer, the heavy forest canopy provides protection from smaller wildlife, offering more viewing opportunities. Squirrels, wild turkey, racoons, and the occasional armadillo frequently wander into the yard.  

We call it, "Deer Cottage" as it's right in the path of the deer as they wander out of the woods to Sonny and Linda's across the street, munching on Linda's delicate roses, and then on down to Sharon's Cabin, where they take in a gardenia or two. 

The cottage will sleep up to 4 with a two bedrooms, each with beds that can be setup as a California king, or two extra long twins. The mattresses are new in 2017. There's a full kitchen and dining area, as well as a small table in the kitchen. It has a 32 inch tv with direct tv and wireless high-speed internet via Hughes net in the living room, as well as in the master bedroom. It also has several outside sitting areas, including a back porch which is screened in,  a front deck that is great for basking in the sun. Spend your summer evenings sitting outside watching the fireflies rise up from the three acre lawn, and listening to sound of whippoorwill in the forest trees. Grab a cane pole that's provided, and dig a can of worms and head down to one of several lakes in the area just wating for you to drop a hook.  If you're looking for real country, this is it.

Availability & Booking

Located in the Osceola Forest, East of Lake City, close to the Olustee Battlefield, 30 miles from Itcheetucknee River, the Santafee, and the Suwannee Rivers. Great for hiking, fishing and tubing the river. If you're wanting to go see the Jags play, it's about 50 miles away, the Gators are about 40, and we even have our own little speedway if you're into racing. Perhaps one of the most popular things to do here is ATVing. The miles and miles of free atv trails that wander through the forest all around all the cabins. There's also many geocaches hidden nearby.
