The bunkbeds, well they are bunkbeds but we do have memory foam under the beds to give extra cushion or you can stack the bunk mattresses to make it comfier.

Most days there is someone else checking in the same day there is someone else checking out but we try to go above and beyond if this is requested. Q: What to expect that is different than a hotel or house? A: It is a camper. it is a unique FUN experience. Campers are not insulated it is imperative to keep the front sliding glass door closed as much as possible if you want to stay cool inside. Furniture is as comfy as a camper can be. Toilets, well they are camper toilets that you have to fill with a pedal and drain after using the bathroom. Sometimes the toilets can omit an odor from the dump tank. If so, in the medicine cabinets we provide toilet pods where you fill the toilet, drop the pod in and then flush. Camper toilets DO NOT have the same plumbing as a house. There is propane used for the stove and heat so be careful NOT to hit the knobs on the stove so the camper does not fill with propane. There is a Carbon Monoxide alarm in the camper should one of the knobs get turn accidentally which will send off a loud alarm to exit the camper and allow it to clear out. We take great care of our camper but we expect guests to tell us if anything is not working properly and we will PROMPTLY respond and will try to repair it in a timely manner. Q: Do you allow pets?

We do have ducks and neighborhood dogs that run around so we ask that you do not allow your pet to chase our ducks and be attentive in case a neighborhood dog stops by to say hello. They are all friendly. Q: Can we hold events or parties? A: Yes, but we must know in advance how many people and what type of party since we have neighbors we want to respect. Also, if you have guests visit that want to stay the night, we ask that you let us know since we charge for more than 4 guests booking. There are no camping tents allowed on the property unless you ask in advance. Q: Parking? A: We have signs up for designated parking.

House in Micanopy, FL

Centrally based around the living room, two bedrooms have queen beds with ensuites and the third bedroom has a twin bed with desk and dresser. The galley kitchen looks through to the dining room. An internal laundry with washer, dryer and ironing facilities is off the dining room. Outside has a three bay carport/pole barn as well as a patio area with 6 seat outdoor table and BBQ. There is also a firepit underneath the beautiful crape myrtle trees and oaks. Located 20 minutes to downtown Gainesville, UF and Shands, 10 minutes to Paynes Prairie, 25 minutes to downtown Ocala, 75 minutes to Disney and Universal and close to I75, this property is very centrally located. Downtown Micanopy is only 2 miles away and offers amazing antique stores, awesome boutique eateries and a taste of "Old Florida". Being on the south side of Gainesville gives easy access to UF and Shands without the dreaded Gainesville traffic. The farmhouse is located on a main road but is hidden behind a large row of trees. It is very private but there can be some road noise at peak times of the day when outside. It is very quiet inside the house. The wifi is rural wifi and is good enough to stream Netflix or chat with friends online but may not support people wishing to work from home unless you bring your own hotspot. The Micanopy area is known for its bad internet service and unfortunately this is out of our control. There is a fully fenced horse pasture that can be utilized with prior approval and discussion.

Article from Gainesville Times 2004 By BOB ARNDORFER World Class Water Skiing Posted Jun 10, 2004 at 12:01 AM TUCKED IN THE SANDhills between Melrose and Keystone Heights, Lily Lake is a familiar name on the professional water-skiing circuit. Over the years, young people who learned to ski on Lily Lake with the Gatorland Show Ski Club of North Central Florida went on to great things at Sea World, foreign competitive ski clubs and even the legendary Cypress Gardens before it closed. “A lot of (ski) club members live on Lily,” says Lily Lake resident Nancy Rembert, who with her husband, Thomas, owns United Warehousing and Trucking in Gainesville. “But it’s not just a water-skiing lake.” It’s a neighborhood, residents say of this 135- acre, sand-bottom lake. It’s a place where people know each other, where potluck dinners are held and where children can frolic in and out of the water without fear. “It’s really a great lake for kids,” says Rembert, a mother of two teen daughters. “They can feel very safe here. There’s a sense of security on a small lake. You know the people around you.” When Billie Gerard and her late husband first bought property on Lily in 1968, there were fewer neighbors to know. “We came down on weekends from Jacksonville,” says Gerard, one of a number of retirees who live on Lily Lake. “When we bought our lot, it had a well and a little picnic house. There weren’t that many places back then that had big, nice houses.” Gerard now lives with her grandson in a house that started out on the drawing board at 1,800 square feet and ended up at 3,500 square feet. LILY LAKE FACTS POPULATION: About 75 LOCATION: About 25 miles from Gainesville, northeast of Melrose. BY THE NUMBERS: The average home size is 1,500-2,000 square feet. Price range: $200,000 to $400,000 for lot and dwelling. (Lot only, 100 feet on water, will cost $75,000-125,000.) STYLE: All over the map. You could see a little 1950s weekend cottage to a glamorous mix of new and old. “Next to Lake Santa Fe, Lily is one of the most sought-after lakes to live on today,” Gerard says. “All the houses that are being built here now are big, nice homes. A lot of people are moving here permanently. There are some people who work in Gainesville.” Gerard, a former registered nurse who for years helped her late husband in his insurance agency, volunteers once a week at Shands at the University of Florida. The diverse Lily neighborhood includes a mix of retirees and young families, of white collar and blue collar backgrounds. Some live on the hilly side of the lake, where steep slopes lead to the water. Others live on the lower level, where it’s pretty much a straight walk to the water. A cove on one end of the long lake remains mostly natural. Though the water level has declined in recent years, Lily is a deep-water lake fed by at least two springs that help stabilize levels. Still, years of drought have left some docks high and dry. But there’s plenty of water for the ski club to continue its weekend practices. “It’s a pleasant place,” says Sandra Banks, a retired insurance agent who had her own agency in Gainesville for several years and now is active in the ski club. She and her husband, Bill, a semi-retired corporate pilot, discovered Lily Lake about 25 years ago, when some sources spelled the name “Lilly”. Their daughter, JoAna Banks, learned to ski on Lily and then turned pro. She worked at Sea World and toured much of the world with professional teams, including one stint as the only American on a Canadian ski team. “It’s built up a lot more today,” Banks says. “For a while, we didn’t have any neighbors. Now we do, and everybody knows everybody.” Gerard says Lily is more than a lake and more than a neighborhood. “When you come back here,” she says, “it’s like you’re in another world.”
