Located in the Horse capitol of the world. Come stay and relax in a tranquil setting under old live oaks overlooking a private, spring fed lake while enjoying country living on our small family farm. The upstairs loft apartment, with lake view, A/C, microwave, coffee maker, small refrigerator, couch, one king and one queen size bed all located upstairs in our barn is a one of a kind cozy and eclectic escape. There's also an outside gas grill. We do provide linens and towels. Enjoy farm fresh eggs from our happy hens and the rest of our furry friends, Jazz and Jasper, our two horses, as well as our 4 friendly, energetic Labrador retrievers who love to swim, play, and have fun. There are two large canoes for our guests to enjoy, a floating dock to fish or swim from. Bring your kayak, boat or fishing gear and enjoy the surrounding beauty around the lake. WE are located just a few miles from The Florida Greenway and the world renowned, Santos Trailhead, where you can hike, bike, or horseback ride through winding roads and beautiful scenery. Also, just 3 miles away, there's Carney Island, one of my personal favorite places to hike and enjoy nature or bring your boat to their boat ramp and spend the day on historic Lake Weir. You can even dock your boat, if you have one, and enjoy great food and fun at the two restaurants on the lake. There are many delightful places to experience from restaurants, parks, and cafes. Silver Springs State Park is only 10 minutes away where you can hike, picnic, rent kayaks or ride the glass bottom boats and enjoy the magnificent, world famous, 72 degree, crystal clear Springs as well as the many other like it throughout the county and adjoining counties. You can even dock your boat and enjoy a couple restaurants on the lake as well. Also around the corner from The Villages, and Spruce Creek Fl. a golfer's paradise! We will do our best to help accommodate any extra needs or requests within our ability to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible:)

We had a wonderful time at the Live Oak Cove Loft. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and their property was beautiful. We spent a lot of time sitting out looking at the lake around the fire. We were very comfortable and will visit again.
We loved our stay at the loft! Rica and Michael were very accomodating when we had time to talk to them, the dogs and horses were all adorable and the space very tranquil. Great place to relax at the end of the day while we visited the nearby springs. Just wish we had time to bike!
Our new favorite staycation place!
OMG! I am a critic by nature, and let me tell you there is nothing but praise for this place and the hosts. I mean “above and beyond” is short of what they will do to make sure you have a great time during your stay. Honestly, I wouldn’t know where to start. From the fresh eggs, to lending us their car when ours broke down.... and a myriad of other things in between. I will be posting as many pictures as I can. I can not, can not over state how happy my whole family was during our stay, from my three year old to my husband. It was a birthday get away my 12 yr old will never forget, and neither will I.
We picked the Live Oak loft because we were looking for a place that had air conditioning and multiple things to do on site. We immediately fell in love with the place. The lake is beautiful and the animals there are extremely loveable. The loft was cozy and had a few DVDs to pick from although we brought along our Roku. Ricca and Michael put a lot of love into this place to ensure you feel at home. We will definitely return.
My family and I had an amazing time at Live Oak Cove: Loft. Ricca, Michael and their sweet daughter are wonderful host. They made our time so special. We are so thankful for the relaxing and enjoyable time we had. We totally recommend their place. 😊😊
Get away from a hectic lifestyle
Rica and Michael were so great and their barn loft was cozy, quaint, and the perfect weekend getaway for my partner and I.
We fed their horses, played with their lovable dogs, swam in the lake, fished off the dock, cooked out with the grill they provided us, and had farm fresh eggs from their hens for breakfast! You could have such a wonderful time here without ever leaving. Although, there are springs only 15 minutes away which we loved.
The bathroom and whole loft was clean and the linens and towels provided were quite nice. The AC worked great and they provided us with essentials likes cutlery, paper plates, small cutting board.
This place is perfect to get away from a hectic busy lifestyle and get into nature to just relax. Rica and Michael are friendly and wonderful but absolutely give guests space and you feel like you have the property all to yourself. Thank you Rice and Michael! We will be back!
Loved the rustic, quirky design of the loft with the use of old doors and barn siding on the walls. Comfortable bed and furniture along with a great view of the lake. Would have loved a little more counter space and a small kitchen sink, but still very workable. Be aware of the steep stairs which could be a challenge for some people.
