This is also horse country, with hundreds of farms and stables throughout the county. H.I.T.S. (Horses In The Sun) is a local, ten week annual equestrian event that attracts competitors from all over the country. Farm tours, trails rides and lessons are all available locally.
Away from daily congestion, Dunnellon is easy access to either the Gulf for boating and water-front dining or Gainesville for Gator sporting events, theater, shopping and more dining. Although you will enjoy the natural beauty of the area and the "get-away-from-it-all" ambiance, you'll be only 15 miles west of Ocala and only 35 minutes away from the sparkling waters of the Gulf. Orlando 1.5 hrs; Gainesville 45 minutes; Tampa 1.5 hours; and Daytona Beach 1 hr.
From previous guest reviews:
"The neighborhood is quiet, the Winn Dixie Supermarket is only minutes away (with a good organic food section and decent wines), and there's a big Walmart very close by. We had some fun days out visiting manatees in Crystal River, seeing dolphins swimming off of Fort Island Gulf Beach, going to the Creative Playground and for lunch in Crystal River, and we highly recommend Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park about 40 mins away from the house. Cody's Roadhouse in Crystal River is also a fun place to eat." Ginevra B.
"The neighborhood was quiet and did not feel like as much of a tourist destination which was a positive for us. There were many trails in the area, golf courses and the rivers were great for spending the day kayaking or boating." Don M.
"If you're looking for a beautiful Florida rental home for just a few days (or for an extended stay), and you'd like to be in a relatively private, secluded setting, yet still close to shopping, restaurants, golf, water recreation, etc., look no furtherThis home is absolutely perfect!!! You can get in your car and drive to ANY of these things in less than 10 minutes. There is also a Winn-Dixie just down the street, so grocery shopping is very convenient." Steven B.
"We had visited the Rainbow Springs area several years ago when considering relocation and remembered it as a very nice environment. It is a quiet and upscale neighborhood, which also served as a good base for day trips to other areas we visited." Kathy C.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Dunnellon, Florida
The pictures online cannot fully show this amazing home. High ceilings, large rooms, tastefully decorate. The lanai is huge, gorgeous pool area. The beds are so comfortable. Master bathroom tub is a luxury. Kitchen is large with lots of counter space. Would absolutely recommend this property. Definitely will be rebooking.

Had a great time.
Anyone would be crazy if they didn't love this home. It is a nice quiet, conveniently located to all local activities and friendly neighborhood. The grands loved the pool. Go to the Purple Sage Cafe for breakfast, you will love it. Both Swampy's and The Blue Gator have great food and a great outdoor atmosphere. Excellent fishing and swimming. We truly had a great time.

Superb Vacation Home, Highly Recommend.
We enjoyed everything about this lovely home during our first vacation away from the cold Northern Illinois winter. The home itself was spacious and comfortable. Beautifully furnished and clean; even better than the description and pictures portrayed. We had visited the Rainbow Springs area several years ago when considering relocation and remembered it as a very nice environment. It is a quiet and upscale neighborhood, which also served as a good base for day trips to other areas we visited. Warmer weather during the second week allowed for some time in the pool, which was delightful.
We cannot think of anything that would improve our experience in the Fournier vacation home. In our household, my wife is the vacation initiator and I am the home body. This was the first time we planned a two week stay anywhere. So here is the ultimate compliment: I could have stayed longer.
Previous vacationers wrote in the guest book about how much they enjoyed their stay and our experience was superb. Thanks to Gary and Jean for sharing their beautiful home.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Home. Was even BETTER than described.
If you're looking for a beautiful Florida rental home for just a few days (or for an extended stay), and you'd like to be in a relatively private, secluded setting, yet still close to shopping, restaurants, golf, water recreation, etc., look no further......This home is absolutely perfect!!! You can get in your car and drive to ANY of these things in less than 10 minutes. There is also a Winn-Dixie just down the street, so grocery shopping is very convenient.
The owner is wonderful to work with. Very responsive (usually within just an hour or 2), very friendly and courteous, and she went out of her way to make sure we were settled in, everything was in good order when we arrived, and to ask if we needed anything. The house was in perfect condition; the cleaning team obviously does an excellent job. Hardwood floors are awesome. Bedrooms and closets were roomy, clean, and comfortable (especially the MASTER!!). The combined Living Room, Dining Room, and Sitting Area area is absolutely HUGE, with plenty of room to lounge around, watch TV, work on your laptop, or just sit and talk with your friends / family. We didn't use the Pool, but we did sit out on the Lanai every night, having a few beers and talking about our day on the golf course.
I very highly recommend this home!! (But not in late February.....because that's when I'll want it again next year :-)

Great home and location
My wife and I have been renting places in Florida for our winter getaways for more than 10 years. We had never rented in this area before and were pleasantly surprised with the location and the home. The home was very well maintained. The furniture and beds were comfortable and made us feel as if we were in our own home. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and cooking utensils. We found that the home offered more than most as far as little things like laundry soap, toiletries and other items such as bikes and pool floats. The pool was well sized and pool heat was included in the rent. The pool was just right as far as temperature and even with cooler nights it was very comfortable for swimming. The neighborhood was quiet and did not feel like as much of a tourist destination which was a positive for us. There were many trails in the area, golf courses and the rivers were great for spending the day kayaking or boating. The homeowners were very accommodating with the reservation and making sure we had everything set for our vacation. We did not have any problems with anything in the home during our entire stay. I would highly recommend this home to others looking for a stress free vacation. We hope to rent the home again in the future and perhaps even rent long term if available when we retire. Thanks to the owners for offering such a great rental.

A great place for family get togethers!
What a great house! It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It's spotlessly clean and well-maintained, comfortable and spacious enough for 4 adults and 4 kids. The pool was fantastic and we appreciated the pool floats and toys being available to us.
The neighborhood is quiet, the Winn Dixie Supermarket is only minutes away (with a good organic food section and decent wines), and there's a big Walmart very close by. We had some fun days out visiting manatees in Crystal River, seeing dolphins swimming off of Fort Island Gulf Beach, going to the Creative Playground and for lunch in Crystal River, and we highly recommend Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park about 40 mins away from the house. Cody's Roadhouse in Crystal River is also a fun place to eat.
Jean was always helpful and responsive, and we felt very well taken care of. Thanks, Jean, for sharing your home with us!
We highly recommend this property!
