Description of the Welaka vacation cottage rental
LAST MINUTE AVAILABILITY FOR WINTER 2016 -Take advantage of the new lower weekly rate for this cute little riverview cottage! Ideal for two. Fall and winter travelers welcome for one week or two weeks! Book now for October through March by the week. The Riverview Cottage is spacious and quaint with an open floor plan. You'll enjoy a river view from most areas of cottage. Upon entering, the open living room and kitchen; the living room features a leather sofa, recliner chair and large screen hd tv with french doors and gorgeous river view. The full size kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities and supplies that a cook could ask for including a hanging pot rack, dishwasher, pantry, tile floors, and plenty of counter space. The bedroom has a comfortable top of the line queen bed with tall dresser and also with french doors. Featured in the bathroom is a jacuzzi tup and stand up shower, all tiled. Unit also has full size washer and dryer with plenty of closet and storage space. Dock is just outside with a deck walkway. Bring your boat and feel free to fish, grill out and enjoy the wonderful sunsets on the quiet cove.

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.
Area Information
This private and secluded water front property is located in southern Putnam County, nestled in the middle of the historic Fruitland Cove. Just to the south is Georgetown, where the St. Johns River enters Big Lake George. A short boat ride in either direction you will find Silver Glen Springs, Salt Springs and the Ocklawaha River. South Putnam County is like the old Florida of yesterday. The Oak canapies, the scenery along the water, and the absence of traffic and noise make Putnam County a little slice of paradise to many.

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.

Last minute long weekend trip

August 18, 2015

Had an awesome time. Very quaint little cabin. Just like you're staying at your favorite aunt's house. The owner Pauline is an absolute delight. Our son had a wonderful time fishing off of the dock and playing with the crabs and we were even able to keep our boat right there in the boat house. Looking forward to a future visit!

We booked the small cottage for the last week in March after spending 2 weeks in southern Florida. It was a clean, cozy little cottage and although you can't really see the water from it ( the larger cottage is in front of it blocking the view), it was a very short walk to the dock which was very pleasant. We enjoyed sitting out on the dock in the evening with the owner and enjoying the peace and quiet. This is a very rural area in Florida - no traffic! There is a state park 3 miles down the road which had really good walking trails and we took a day trip to St Augustine which was only about 1 1/2 hrs away. If you are OK with a studio cottage this is a great place to stay.

Owner's reply:

Christy, thank you for the nice review. I would like to thank Mr. Fogg for his help with the sofa.
I enjoyed having you here as my guest. I'm sorry you missed the view of the river through the French doors.
I've never had anyone say that. Regardless I hope you visit again soon!

Fish Camp Cottage

March 12, 2015

Very small, clean one room cabin with kitchen and living area somewhat separate from bed. Nice bathroom with separate shower and jucuzzi tub as well as washer and drier. There is another larger house between it and the river, but easy access to the dock. Fruit trees in the yard make nice breakfast. This is a rural setting with a few restaurants nearby in Welaka and Cresent City. Visit Blue Springs, ride the 2 car ferry to Salt Springs, drive to the Orlando area for stuff to do. Very peaceful place to stay and fish.

Owner's reply:

Elizabeth, I just want to thank you for much for the very nice review. I do hope you will return for a visit
in the near future. Being the dog lover that I am I enjoyed your lab. Go ahead and refer my home to some
of your friends in the North I'm so happy you enjoyed the River!

My wife and I stayed in the river house the last week of October. It was a great vacation, nice house on the river with great views. We took our pontoon boat and spent the days on the river fishing and sight seeing. It is a beautiful place to visit. The evenings we spent fishing off the dock. This place is the perfect getaway for anyone who loves being outdoors.

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.

Review Submitted: October 27, 2009 Date of Stay: September 2009
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.

This is not Minnesota!
Review Submitted: March 12, 2012 Date of Stay: February 2012
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
