Nature Awaits You!

The Talisman Riverhouse

A Riverside paradise awaits you!
This vacation home embraced by ancient oaks sits directly on a spectacular stretch of the Withlacoochee.

This vacation home embraced by ancient oaks sits directly on a spectacular stretch of the upper reaches of the Withlacoochee River (where it exits the state forest). It is situated at the end of a lime rock road that forms a private and secluded point on the river. Directly across the river on the other bank is the former Florida Creek Indian Tribal Grounds. This riverfront retreat offers incredible scenic beauty magical in the simple diversity of the river wildlife and its peaceful surroundings. Whether you find your relaxing pleasure in fishing, boating/kayaking, observing birdlife, or just reading that book you have meant to get to, you will be delighted with all the opportunities offered by the Riverhouse.

Located approximately 8 miles north of Dade City near US 301, the river house is less than 1 hour away from all the major central Florida attractions (to the Northeast) as well as within less than an hour of the Tampa Bay metro area (to the Southwest), yet you may find it more pleasurable to simply stay in this rural area and enjoy the many entertainment festivities that seem to be ongoing throughout the year from the several different town communities. Whether it is a day at Rock Springs (near Apopka), horseback riding in Sumter County (in the Bushnell area) or taking your exercise on the state-designated trail, we doubt that you will run out of things to do. For those less inclined to physical activities, there are also the antiquing opportunities both in Dade City or in Mt. Dora. We even have our own drive-in theater and nearby local "country" golf courses all at unbelievably low prices.
