This rental is a versatile option for everyone from solo travelers, to couples, to groups. The rooms in this home can be rented out individually for small groups but the entire home is available to book for larger groups if available. It is located near the Florida Caverns State Park, which offers a unique opportunity to tour the caves and see the stunning natural formations inside. For a taste of local history, visit the Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail, a half-mile long trail that leads to its namesake bridge that was built in 1914. By day the trail passes through beautiful scenery and you may catch a glimpse of unique plants or animals. By night you might encounter one of the ghosts that legends say the area is haunted by-for the adventurous, there are guided tours around Halloween.
