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, toaster oven, small refrigerator, located upstairs in our barn is a one of a kind cozy and eclectic escape. 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 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!

The loft is a great getaway for a couple. Plenty to do at the site (Lake, canoe, swimming, fishing, and more). Mike and Rica are very nice and laidback. They have dogs and horses, which add to the fun—great biking and other activities close by. I highly recommended it.
Beautiful property with everything a glamper can ask for. The space was stunning, eccentric and charming. Our hists were gracious and generous. Every animal on the property was happy and friendly. We had a fantastic time swimming in the lake, canoeing, sitting around a camp fire, biking on the nearby trails, kayaking the springs and just hanging out on the various swings. Our pup loved it too and their pack welcomed him. I would highly recommend this place. Be prepared for some serious stairs (good exercise) and no kitchen sink. In spite of this I still give it 5 stars. We look forward to going again.
Beautiful cabin loft
Beautiful cabin loft on a family farm! Lots of wonderful details in the well-kept cabin loft. The property is beautiful and is on a spring-fed lake for swimming, fishing, canoeing or other water activities. The hosts are very friendly, warm, & hospitable! They went out of their way to make sure everything was just right, including bringing us fresh eggs! We will definitely go back. :)
We had such a great time at the Loft. Met family there that we hadn't seen in 20years and it was the perfect little gathering spot. Loved that we could swim from the dock and just hang out. The lake and surrounding areas is just beautiful, amazing colors from Sunrise and Sunset. We loved being around the dogs and horses felt just like home. The gas grill came in handy for cooking! Would definitely love to go back again!
A gift of a window view
This was my first time staying at this loft. I have to say, this loft exceeded my expectations. I saw photos. But, the loft was so much better in person. The wood loft was ABSOLUTELY beautiful. Looking at water from the wide window view as I meditated, was so serene. I am already anticipating returning next year or even in a couple of months.
Our stay at the loft over the 4th of July weekend was wonderful! The location was clean & well kept and our hosts were warm, friendly, and very attentive. It was the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure. My boyfriend and I loved playing with the pups, seeing the horses, hiking nearby trails, and grilling outside. It was everything we hoped it would be and more! We will definitely be coming back!
Fun, friendly, and charming!
My son and I had a blast at the loft! The entire trip really exceeded our expectations. The place itself has a ton of charm, and you can tell that the owners really care about the little details. As much as we loved the cabin, we loved the hosts even more! The whole family went out of their way to give us tips about the area, show us around their farm, introduce us to their animals, and more. For us, it was the perfect blend of adventure-filled days and peaceful evenings. Away from the farm- we paddled the springs, hiked in the woods, and biked the awesome trails nearby. Back at the farm- we played with baby peacocks, fished from the dock, went swimming, canoed the lake, and hung out with chickens, horses, and some of the sweetest dogs you'll meet! The hosts will give you as much space as you need, or they'll take you in as one of their own. This really is the perfect spot for anyone, as there is something for everybody. The only thing we didn't like was having to say goodbye. We will definitely be visiting this little farm again.:)
