Lol I was told that was taken care of but I don’t know how. The forest is a big place.

There was a neighborhood by Lake Nicatoon(I think that’s the right lake) that had its own common area- like a big park with no hunting - that had lots backing up to it. Seemed nice and kind of upscale, but not too much so.

Wish I could remember the exact place.

Anyway, I’ve passed homes in the forest while hiking that have several very loud dogs. Perhaps that’s just a security thing and they don’t ordinarily bark like that.

Some areas of the forest are not very serene. Plus there’s hunting season, and sounds carry.

Yes I've become wary of living too close to Ocala forest due to hunting season and animal problems and such, and I also heard there is bomb testing done there?!
Anyone have details on the bomb testing?
Doesn't sound very serene!

Definitely interested in your search as it seems like we are looking for similar.

I live about 6 feet away from a neighbor who has a constantly talking parrot. A screaming macaw really wouldn’t bother me, as that is nature.

But a talking parrot constantly spewing obscenities in a voice that sounds almost exactly like her nutty owner? That’s too much. I can’t complain due to the vengeful owner.

I never in a bazillion years would’ve imagined this.

ByeByeLW, I feel for you. Your situation is totally unacceptable. I would lose my mind if I were in your situation! I know how loud birds can be, I once lived next to a woman with 2 geese in a pool 15 yards from my bedroom!

My neighbor now is not nearly that bad; but I bought and moved to what I thought was my ideal nature place, picked for its quiet and beauty and nature. 9 acres! I imagined myself living in a nature Reserve.

Then some ahole bought the property next to me which I thought would not/could not be developed because there was no road to it. Now I have a neighbor 60-75 yards away but directly across from me with a small valley in between us. the sound carries like crazy. I hear his every word, plus shoveling, scraping, backhoe, dog barking, talking loud on the phone everything. Honestly it was quieter in my Big City apartment! Trying to sell my property now and move to FL.

I am doubtful I'll find the nature and quiet I truly want but nevertheless will try to find a place as quiet as i can find. I'd rather live with elderly people (I guess I am elderly myself, but healthy and active!) in a gated community than here on my 9 acres, IF the community is quiet and enforces those rules!

Try looking at some rather beautiful land bordering the Alabama line - quiet, great people

North Central Florida, the Panhandle and other areas mentioned are well outside the OP's scope of "Central Florida" and it's kind of disingenuous to suggest there aren't any quiet areas remaining there. Much of Lake County and Polk County would certainly fulfill the requirement minus a 100+ mile or more adjustment.

Paisley, Pine Lakes, Center Hill, Green Pond, parts of Ridge Manor, anything East of Haines City in Polk County.
Also, it's been a while since I been out there, but Christmas at one time was a quiet town. Maybe some one else can confirm if it still is

Thanks, will consider looking at other areas. But then the main reason I am looking at the area within an hour or less from Eustis is because a) I like what I've seen of that area ; and b) two good friends live around there.

Altoona just past Umatilla might be something too. I know some people who
Live on Lake Yale( I think) and they like it.

Oh, another place is Crescent City in Putnam County. Just make sure you are on high ground as there was a lot of flooding with the storms last year.
