Vacation Oasis

May 12, 2008

It appears we've christened Paty's vacation oasis- we are her first paying customers! Quite an honor as it is obvious Patty has tremendous enthusiasm for creating charming and idyllic spaces. We have had a fine time staying in her well equipped vacation cottage. The home is comfortable, inviting and has all the importanct conveniences. It even boasts of some original exquisite photography from Patty's world travels. We intended to spend our days exploring the national forest, but we found the serenity of her property, with its many decks, river access, choice of boats and eating spaces and all embraced by a circle of mature trees offering full privacy, too attractive to leave. Patty did everything possible to make our stay the best it could be and catered to our every need. A charming retreat and a very pretty, solicitous host. Well there is one more thing: Patty could have let us steal one of her dogs. We would of taken either Mia or Red, two more loving dogs you will not find.

First, Patty is an excellent host. She is accommodating, friendly, and conscious that her guests' time is best spent relaxing, and enjoying the natural beauty of area. (She's cute, too.) Her property is spacious, covered with live oaks, natural flora, and plenty of shade. The kids (or adults) can fish off the pier for bass, bream, and a little fighting freshwater devil called a "chinquapin." But the best part is slowly cruising down the river, which is crystal clear, full of fish, and remarkably undeveloped in areas. Patty is a licensed boat captain who can tell you about the area or her adventures sailing the West Indies and across the Atlantic. See alligators, blue heron, egrets, and the rumored Skunk Ape, which is Florida's mythical (?) version of Bigfoot. I haven't seen one yet, but my two boys and I wil be back in a month or so to widen the search. If you are an artist, writer, or someone who draws inspiration from sheer natural beauty, this is the place to recharge.

We are New Yorkers and stayed at Serenity during our Easter break. It is both peaceful and charming. The views are spectacular and the owner was more than willing to accomodate our every need. We will be back next year!

The unit we stayed in was very comfortable and nicely furnished. The master bedroom easily accomodates two adults with its queen-size bed. There is a pull-out sofa bed in the living room for an additional two guests. The small den/office can accomodate small children also-my son's pack n' play fit very well in here! The best part of our stay was the property. Truly breathtaking! The large sundeck sits right on the river and offers an excellent spot for sunning, reading or just relaxing. There is a pontoon boat at your disposal for leisurely cruises up/down the river, including a picnic lunch. Follow your day's adventures with a nice glass of wine and a soak in your private hottub and gaze up at the myriad stars blanketing the night's sky and your are truly in heaven! If you are looking for additional eco-adventures, both Homossassa Springs and Crystal River are a close drive. My 7-month old son, Conner LOVED the manatees! Thanks, Patty, for a wonderful stay! Truly relaxing!

Guestbook

On the 4th of July we stayed at Serenity Springs Retreat. Captain Patty took us out on Kings Bay, Crystal River for the 4th of July events and fireworks. It was the most memorable fourth of July that we had ever spent!! The fireworks were spectacular, the BBQ on the boat, was a delicious experience, and the following river cruise was splendid and relaxing. We BBQ'd on the boat at sunset in a perfect hidden cove, while the wonders of nature surrounded us. It was an experience we will never forget!!! We will be sure to return. The unit was cozy and homey and very relaxinging. In all, it is THE place to go to destress from everyday life. Thank you Captain Patty!!!

It is splendid!! Absolutely beautiful! A little piece of heaven!!
