Riverview Cottage on St. Johns River & Lake George
Description of the Welaka vacation cottage rental
Located on the Fruitland Cove along the historic St. Johns River just north of Lake George. This romantic "get-away" cottage is tucked among a canope of live oaks, facing west towards the Ocala National Forest, where you will find the sunsets breath taking from our covered boat dock. Lake George is three miles south by boat, and it has long been known as the "Bass Capital of the World". In days gone by, Spanish gallions sailed to the mouth of Lake George for fresh water and rice from a native settlement on an island that pre-dates St. Augustine. History and romance await you here at Pauline's Paradise. If you aren't into fishing - the birds, view and an occasional manatee under the dock will just add to your enjoyment of this vacation paradise.
It was here that Marjorie Kinnan Rawling wrote, "If I could have and hold forever, one brief place of beauty, I think I might choose the night on that high bank above the St. Johns River."
Whether this is a regular vacation spot or a new one, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you.

I had a wonderful three night stay at Paulines Paradise. Stayed in the "river house". All the comforts of home, a beautiful view of the river, a large dock for both fishing and lounging, and a great host in Pauline. A gorgeous location on a great river.

Oh my, I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay! My husband woke up this morning and was in near tears because we leave at the end of the week. If you like to fish (granted we didn't catch much, but I didn't want to clean them anyway!), love peace and quiet and you like your partner - this is a little piece of heaven! If you need more room, the river house adjacent to the cottage is beautiful.
The cottage is one room with a bathroom, huge tub and heavenly shower. Dishwasher, washer/dryer, place to put the boat, sit on the dock or patio. Quiet neighbors in the river house, close places to eat out or just cook in the fully functional kitchen. Close to wonderful activities - the Kennedy Space Center was our favorite - we spent 2 days there and even saw a satellite launch - Wow! Got to a Twins game for Spring Training and saw our son down here for spring break/baseball in Plant city.
Picked and squeezed fresh grapefruits, lemons and oranges. Tons of birds, wildlife. The weather was wonderful.
Cell phone access is limited, but wireless internet access works fine. Cell phones do work outside and sometimes inside - was not a big deal for us, we just used the land line if we had to make a call out or waited till we were out of the area. Wide screen TV and Xfinity services.
Pauline is a hoot! Will do anything to make your stay comfortable. We will be back next year

My husband and I loved our stay at this property so much the first time that we have been there twice. We were able to dock our jet ski behind the house and be ready to ride early in the morning. We had breakfast on the dock and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The owner made sure we had everything that we needed and was great help with places to ride and to enjoy great meals. If you are interested in a place to get away from it all and enjoy nature, you have found the right place.
