    Family Forest Retreat, Paradise at Point Pleasant is an amazing property out in the woods on Lake Kerr. It's like summer camp for grownups. Pretty rustic, no frills, woodsy, with a lot of love put into the place. The owner is super attentive and...

Adventure awaits at Paradise at Point Pleasant! Bring your boats and ATVs to this pet friendly, handicap accessible home on canal to beautiful Lake Kerr. Located in the heart of the Ocala National Forest, Lake Kerr is a freshwater spring fed lake with great swimming and fishing. Pontoon and ATV rental available on site. Sit around the fire pit, make S'mores and view the night stars! Great fishing onsite. Play cornhole, enjoy the disc swings or just relax in our hammock built for two.
I am a traveling healthcare professional. I traveled here to work last year and fell in love with forest life! I loved it so much I decided to make this my home! I can't be happier to share this area with others to explore. Please note the the 4th bedroom is a shared space with a cabinet bed in the dining room. We live nearby so we are available for any help/questions/concerns you may have or we can give you as much privacy as you would like.
Boat launch for Lake Kerr 1 mile away. Lake Kerr is great for fishing, boating and swimming! Salt Springs is 10 min away with restaurants, bars, marina, parks, fishing bait and supplies as well as sporting goods for boating and hunting.. 30 min from Silver Springs State Park. Boat launch/rentals available at Salt Springs Marina with access to Lake George and St. Johns River for world class bass fishing if you prefer. Plenty of parking on property in the front and side in addition to lot across the street. Most of the people that live in our neighborhood use ATVs like golf carts since we have sand roads.
