Sweetwater Cabin - Juniper Springs


 You will the use of this cabin for one (1) week. 

The cost will be $90.00 per person for the week.

The Sweetwater Spring Rental Cabin is located in the Juniper Prairie Wilderness Area of the Ocala Naional Forest in the Silver Springs area. Gated access to the cabin is via approximately 1/2 mile of maintained sandy lane. The cabin, built in 1935, is a rustic 2 bedroom cabin that sleeps 12, and has a full bath, equipped kitchen including microwave, coffee pot, toaster, dishes and silverware. The living room has a rustic fireplace for those cozy nights. All you need to bring is your linens, pillows and food. The cabin is sited on the incredible Juniper Creek inland waterway that flows through the Juniper Prairie Wilderness area. Additionally, the cabin site overlooks scenic Sweetwater Spring and includes an observation deck sited directly over the spring. Unfortunately, due to the ecologically sensitive nature of the site, no pets are allowed inside or outside the cabin area.

      They tell me there is a charcoal grill onsite. So if folks want to bring charcoal, etc and do a "grill night" or two that might be cool. They have some picnic tables.
