About the Dunnellon area

 

Surrounded by two beautiful rivers, the historic community of Dunnellon lies between the plush thoroughbred horse farms of Ocala, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. With its carefully preserved Old Florida character and spirit of hospitality, its spectacular rivers, springs, vegetation and wildlife - all only 15 miles from the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico - Dunnellon is the perfect gem in Florida's natural paradise.

Residents can gain a sense of the early days as they stroll the oak-lined streets and view the authentically restored nineteenth century homes. Just north of Dunnellon is Rainbow Springs State Park with Florida's second largest artesian spring emptying between 315 to 795 million gallons of water into the Rainbow River each day. Great for boating, tubing, canoeing, swimming, diving and snorkeling, the crystal clear Rainbow River winds southward and meets up with the mighty Withlacoochee River in downtown Dunnellon. Known world wide for its largemouth bass, the Withlacoochee River offers freshwater fishing at its finest and runs west out of Dunnellon into the Gulf of Mexico where saltwater fishing is abundant. Dunnellon's central location is minutes away from larger cities such as Ocala, Gainesville, Inverness and Crystal River Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. Only 90 minutes away are all the major tourist attractions such as Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida and Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. The area's dramatic springs and vibrant waterways, delightful climate and most certainly its location on U.S. 41 makes Dunnellon the ideal Florida place to live.

Our little town is surely growing. I for one am pleased in the direction it’s taking. It seems to me we are hanging onto that “small town feel” that seems to be so rapidly disappearing from our grasp.

Please feel free to give us a call.
