Description of the Lake City vacation cottage rental
Dove Cottage invites you to the forest, and to a time of good neighbors, country roads and peace and quiet.

Located in the Mt. Carrie area, just east of Lake City, Dove Cottage is about 8 miles from Lake City Airport, 11 miles from Olustee Battlefield, ten miles from the VA and downtown, about 60 miles from the Jacksonville Beach, and 100 miles from St. Augustine. Oh, yes... bout 200 miles from Orlando.

This delightful cottage is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, A-Frame home that sleeps up to 6, with additional sleeping areas available, if needed. Since its' back yard is the Osceola Forest, deer and wild turkey are frequently seen, and trails behind the house wind for miles into the forest, complete with many small lakes and one large one, Ocean Pond closeby.

It comes fully furnished, including; all furniture, kitchen pots, pans, dishes, linens, sheets, towels. All you need to bring is your clothes. It also has satellite TV and Internet and a 50 inch flat screen TV and a 32 inch in the upstairs bedroom. There's also a propane fireplace inside, as well as a firepit and grill outside.

Osceola Estates, a small country community of about 45 homes that sit in a niche that is carved out of the Osceola National Forest. Hunting, fishing, hiking, birding and ATVing are very popular.

Downstairs is a living, dining, kitchen, a front and back deck (screened in), one bedroom and bath. Upstairs is one bedroom and bath, and has a screened in deck on the front.

The downstairs bedroom has a queen size bed, and bath has a tub/shower combo, and the upstairs bedroom has four twins that can be setup as a two California kings, or four extra-long twins, and has a walk-in shower. There is also a mother-in-law cottage that if you would like to rent it for a larger group, can be setup for extra sleeping.

You will have a full kitchen, with a propane stove, microwave, coffeepot, and such, with seating for up to 4, plus extra dishes if you want to setup a picnic outside and such. The upstairs bedroom has a 32 inch flat screen TV. The living room has a 48 inch flat screen TV.

It's very peaceful and quiet out here. I love it, particularly in the fall and winter. Summer brings lots of mosquitoes and is not the perfect time unless you plan on staying inside a lot, that's why I charge less then.

We have central air and heat, but also have the propane fireplace, if you'd like to have a fire. There's also lots of bird seed here if you'd like to put it out for the birds. We frequently have the Palliated woodpecker in the yard as well as the occasional hawk and egret. Once in a while there will be rabbits, possum and raccoon. And, if you are an early riser, the deer are in the yard pretty much everyday about 5am.

Dove Cottage also has 4 bikes for guests use. They are simple Huffy 26 inch bikes, specially selected for dirt roads, and few mechanics, so that most anyone can ride them. If you are larger, or smaller framed, you might want to bring your own.

Rate shown includes 6, $10 per night for each additional person.

Pets are welcome for a $30 extra fee. We provide a welcome kit for our furry guests that includes treats, toy and poop bags.
