This listing is our second site. Our homestead is located in the heart of Citrus County, FL. We are a small 5 acre operation which includes various livestock, mown pathways, and garden plots with water, outdoor sink, and composting toilet. We are 17 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico on Florida's Nature Coast. St. Petersburg, Tampa and Orlando are all within 100 miles. The manatee capital of the world in Crystal River is just a 30 minute drive, where you have access to fishing, kayaking, SUPing and so much more. Our homestead is within walking distance of the Citrus Wildlife Management Area in the Withlacoochee State Preserve where you will find caving opportunities, horseback riding, mountain biking and off roading as well as excellent hiking. In addition, Citrus County is home to the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes, and the Withlacoochee River runs right through it, increasing opportunities for boating and fishing experiences. There is a wealth of springs within a very short drive. The 46 mile Rails to Trails of the Withlacoochee Bike Path runs adjacent to the lakefront in downtown Inverness, where you'll find a thriving area of locally owned shops, restaurants and our very own brewery. We hope you'll visit our homestead in Inverness, a "small town done right"!

The area was spacious, clean, with access to a refrigerator, sink, and electricity. Inverness is equidistant to Dunnelon and Rainbow Springs. Very convenient for tubing, kayaking, especially at Rainbow Springs, Rainbow and Crystal Rivers.
