Beautiful spot overlooking Lake Weir in The Ocala National Forest.  You will have a private area with a large fire pit away from the house for privacy but only a two minute walk to an incredible hot and cold outdoor shower and full bathroom complete with extra large soaking bathtub.  Watch the otters play and count the many different birds that make this lake their home. Treat yourself to incredible sunsets every night as the sun disappears into the water.  Stand up paddle board and kayak available for your use.  Electric and water hookup (consisting of extension chord to 110 and garden hose) available.  

As I am not at the property 24/7, last minute bookings should check with me to make sure bathroom can be unlocked and available.

The dock was damaged during a recent storm and we are in the process of rebuilding it - it should be available for use again soon.

Marci's property is centered around the breathtaking views of Lake Weir! I don't think that we could ever tire of gazing at the lake. Marci was a helpful host and she recommended local restaurants and springs to check out. She had plenty of firewood to utilize and offered us use of her kayak and paddleboard. We didn't have a chance of either as it was a rather rainy weekend during our stay. There is an indoor large tub and toilet and outdoor shower available.

We could not have been more pleased with the site and extend gratitude to Marci for sharing such a special place with us. Marci provided everything we needed and more like recommendations on day trips and local grub. If you love nature, Marci's backyard is like a nature reserve. Perfect place for birders. Great place and wonderful host! Could not have asked for more. It was a perfect place to land on our trip home after running from Hurricane Michael. Thank you Marci.

What a wonderful view and grounds. The lake is better than any netflix series - sunset just divine.
The outdoor shower is awesome even in a bit of a brisk chill, having hot water cascading down, knowing you can snuggle up into cozy warmth, great amenity.
There's also an indoor soaking tub, toilet and sink available.

My RV is 11.5" high with a rubber roof and there were quite a few low hanging and side-hugging branches on my way in, so I just parked it and didn't move until time to leave.

Marci had her yard person trim, but still not quite the width or height for my class C (I can't recall how wide my RV is).

She's got a sweet little cat and dog. And some frisky night creature, most likely a raccoon, stole one of my shoes! But I found it - I guess it wasn't their style ;-)

Marci has her porch available, too, should you want a change of scenery of the lake near the large tree in the backyard.

Really peaceful and enjoyable spot.

Marci's spot was a wonderful place to stay. Watching the wildlife and enjoying the lake view was relaxing. The added benefit of electric and water hookup made our stay comfortable. Marci went out of her way to make sure we had a good time, even socializing with us one night at a local restaurant. We planned ahead with her regarding watching our little dogs for an agreed price so we could go to Disney for a day trip. We also traveled to Silver Springs Park and checked out The Villages community while there. We would stay there again if in the area.

Marcy wasn't extremely friendly warm hose they gave us great insight to what to do. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived. She had severalfruit trees and encouraged us to take some. we had a wonderful time on her paddleboard and kayak which we took to the local outdoor bar and restaurant, which had a nice Beach. The best part was The lake view which just constantly became more colorful as the night went on. We would definitely return.
