Description from owner
Open for week of Valentine's Day! One week available in February! This river front house was designed with luxury and comfort in mind while paying aattention to details. First, enter the river house from the wrap around lanai and and enter the office with cherry desk. Next you'll see through glass doors to the river and you can see the river from most parts of the house. The lanai features a king size bed tucked away with an incredible view. It also has two tables on the lanai so you can dine there or at the dining table. Now you step up to the spacious living room and one side includes a leather sectional sofa facing a large screen tv. Now the other side of living room features a sitting area with a sofa and recliner that faces a wood burning stove. From there you enter the master bedroom through solid wood french doors; complete oak bedroom set with stern and foster mattress. Next the one bath has tub / shower, linen closet, vanity, etc, all tiled. Down the hall from bedroom you'll find the galley kitchen, new appliances, new stove top, beautiful oak cabinetry, much storage, large pantry, rack for pots and pans above the sink and then to the right side is the breakfast room with brown porcelain gas stove. The kitchen is a chef's dream. To the left of the breakfast room is the dining room that seats 8.
Located on the Fruitland Cove along the historic St. Johns River just north of Lake George. This romantic "get-away" house 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.
Boat lifts with covered dock.

“Even better than we imagined...”
Pauline's place was the ideal escape. The photos do not do this picturesque home justice. If you are looking for an escape from everyday life, this is the place. Pauline was an absolute gem and a perfect hostess. She spent time introducing herself and gave us a complete tour of the property. Once we were settled in, she gave us ample privacy to enjoy all the peace and tranquility this area has to offer. From our mornings having breakfast on the dock watching eagles and gators pass by to our afternoons spent fishing to our evenings playing board games and enjoying the sounds of nature, this was absolute perfection. Not only did we get reacquainted with one another and nature but we made a new friend in Pauline. She has stories to share and she is a pistol of a lady. The home itself was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need to cook and entertain ourselves. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. We definitely will be back to this home away from home. Thank you so much Pauline for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Owner's reply: This was by far the best review I've received in quite a while. You have such nice things to say about me and that goes both ways. I know classy people when I see them. I look forward to your next visit when you bring the boys so we can teach them how to fish. Thanks again and stay in touch. Pauline
“Cozy and pleasant”
I was planning to stay at the river house, however it was already booked. At the end, Pauline, nicely offered the smaller house and it was a nice option for the three of us(my husband and my 26-year-old son). We were lucky to spend new years eve at the Renegades Camping party. Excellent band, Mr. Natural. Next time, we want to come back with my whole family and stay at the river house.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the nice review. I don't know how I missed it. All three of you were such a delight to have here over the holidays. I can tell you guys were happy and enjoyed every minute of it. You were goi g to make plans to bring your family back so get in touch with me when your ready to make a reservation. Maybe by then my garden will be ready and I'll fix you a pot of fresh peas! Thanks again. Pauline
Had a wonderful Memorial weekend on the Lake, even had a family gathering with a visit from Banjo my brother-in-laws horse. The dock was wonderful to sit on and just relax and enjoy nature and its sounds. Pauline was very accomadating and even joined our family party. Thank you and can't wait to return in September
Owner's reply: Dear Teresa, Thank you for the awesome review. I really enjoyed your family. Your visit with Banjo was entertaining for me too. Really looking forward to seeing you folks Labor Day! Pauline Dunn
“Great Weekend Get Away”
My husband and I had a great weekend. It was nice to have the covered boat dock so we didn't have to get the boat in out of the water everyday. Great view and very nice home. Ms. Pauline was extremely nice and everything was as she said it would be. Very quiet and relaxing area.
Owner's reply: George & Debra, Thank you so much for the nice Review. I enjoyed meeting you both, you were the perfect guests! I look forward to seeing you again soon.
Owner greeted us not properly dressed. ROACHES on floor everyday. When told of them, the owner said if they are their backs, then they are dead. Personal belongings in bath, closets and dressers. Had to put them in boxes or move some to other cottage. Jacuzzi and dishwasher did not work. Lights in kitchen were not wired. Cupboard was missing. Bath ceiling was coming apart. Owner was very intrusive. Etc. Owner told us if she got a bad review from people who left early she can delete them.
Owner's reply: Dear Ed, I'm sorry you were disappointed, As a rule most of my guests comment about the house being more beautiful than they expected. I did what I could to make you all happy, even purcasing a new grill for use. I am aware the jacuzzi does not work and I removed it from the add. The dishwasher is working. Everything in the house is in top shape with the exception of a few repairs that come along. I feel that some people you just can't please no matter what you do.
“Great Fishing and Country Living!”
My wife & I had a great month at Pauline's River House! I enjoyed fishing almost every day and certainly enjoyed the covered boat dock with lift. Biggest fish was 10 pounds, 9 ounces, a personal best! My wife enjoyed sewing on the Lani, with the great light and wonderful view. The place is peaceful and our hostess, Pauline, was accomodating and very gracious ... we love her! My wife enjoyed the large kitchen and we enjoyed the large HDTV in the evenings. A perfect place to get away. We also found the local restaurant had a wonderful variety of good food at resonable prices. If you seek a restful retreat, this is the place!
Owner's reply: David and Esther, I can't say enough kind words about you both! What a team you are. I really appreciate the nice review, it means so much. I couldn't be happier about the big bass you caught. It was the largest bass my guests ever caught during their stay. If Astor gets too crowed for you or there's too much traffic, there's always 2016! You all are welcome to come back anytime! God surely blessed me by having you both as my guests. Keep in touch with me. Pauline
“Nice relaxing weekend!”
We were looking for a place to just relax and enjoy a long weekend. This was the perfect place! Quiet, beautiful, and laid-back. Pauline was the perfect hostess. She fished with us -- even let us use her new tackle! And the last night we had a fish fry with her. Best hush puppies I've had in a long time! The house has all the amenities you could need. Snowbirds could easily spend a winter here. The river and lake offer tons of opportunities for boating and fishing. Lake George is on the edge of the Ocala Nat'l Forest, which has myriad hiking trails, and there are springs nearby with a swimming beach. You can make your stay here as active or as lazy as you like.
Owner's reply: What a Review, Thank you for taking the time to send such a nice review.I really had a fun time cook-en up them fish and the hush puppies turned over in the hot oil like they are suppose to when they get done on one side.I hope you folks can come again soon,oh PS I caught a Red Bass (my first) the other day.He was 15 inches long but I kept and cooked him anyway.I thank God for Pauline's Paradise and that I can share it with folke like you. Thank you Pauline Dunn.
“Perfect for our family”
This was a perfect place for our southern way of life, and very accommodating for our family of five. We brought two boats , which were housed nicely within the dock area, fishing and boating at our pleasure with absolutely no problem. Ms. Pauline was a gracious hostess, providing great side dishes and joining us for an evening fish friy. Memories of this vacation will last a life time. Many thanks to Ms.Pauline and we hope to return again. Phil, Karen, Ben, Nick and Joseph
Owner's reply: Phil, Thank you so much for the review I had a fun time with your family and injoyed every day of your visit. Those boy s are some thing else. I can't get over all of Bass they caught.Every time they went out they came back wth bass, one if not more.I hope you come again soon. Pauline.
My husband and I had a really great time. No problems, very clean and very private. We weren't interested in talking to anyone and were burnt out. Felt much better after the weekend.
Owner's reply: I really enjoyed Stephanie and Husband as my guest.They enjoyed just hanging out on the dock and relaxing in the sunshine. Thank you so much for the very nice things you had to say about the River House. Thanks Pauline.
