Quaint, charming, cozy and very unique older home! This Artists retreat is sweetly tucked away in Ocala’s National Forest. Find yourself surrounded by beautiful Oaks, pines & two abundant grapefruit trees. Sip your coffee or tea on the swing under the trees, have a picnic or grab a kayak & spend the day at Springs. Enjoy cooking meals in the full kitchen while the kids play (within view) outside. This gem has all the amenities you will need as you unwind from city life and decompress in nature.

The space
The entire house is yours to relax in.
Exterior buildings (aside from the wash house) are for our personal storage and are NOT available for guests to use or enter.

Neighbors are on both sides of the property.
Trees block almost 100 percent of the house to the right and a good portion of the neighbors to the left. Both are a good distance away.
Front of property (across the street) is all Forest and the rear of the home is all forest.
The neighbors are quiet, respectful and keep to themselves, both families have lived next to this home for 30+ years.
A warehouse with sever tenants is located on the corner of 314 before getting to the home, but is not within sight of our property.
Currently a Gun Shop and Donation Center are current renters.

Mr. M and his lovely wife are the sweet married couple that own “The Cozy Cottage”. They also happen to be my parents. They have always been by my side; aiding, guiding, loving, encouraging and accepting me for my good, my bad, and at times my ugly. I know ultimate sacrifice, ultimate kindness and ultimate unconditional love because of them. I (Melissa) am their daughter that used to live in this sweet home with my husband and kids (until we outgrew the space). One day I went to gather more of our belongings (while moving out slowly & hesitantly), when I had the idea to freshen the place up and put it up on Airbnb (to see what how it would do). I have had a deep love for this property since the first time I stepped foot on the land 9 years ago, it is filled with so much character and charm. What a huge privilege and honor it is to work along side my sweet parents in helping them manage, clean, decorate and upkeep this delightful slice of Heaven. We are still new to the hosting game; however we take so much pride in providing a unique, exciting and OH SO COZY experience for each and everyone of our guests. We thank you for checking us out and appreciate all the love and patience shown to us during this incredible journey. #blessed #GlorybetoGod #familyownedandoperated #dreamteam
