This cabin retreat was a fantastic getaway for my husband and myself on our 12th anniversary. The cabin is quaint, clean and organized....everything that we had hoped it would be. The view of the lake from the cabin itself was spectacular, especially in the morning with the sun rising over the water...breathtaking!!.. We enjoyed the kayaks, the jacuzzi, grilling outside and the fishing!! We especially appreciate that Michael's son, Mathew took us fishing in his boat one morning along the lake banks. And we all caught fish!! We also caught lots of fish from the dock itself and enjoyed cooking it on the outdoor grill.....

If you want a place to recoup and relax, and very private...this is it! We would highly recommend the Do Duck Inn as a wonderful retreat....and plan to return ourselves. Michael and his wife, Teri, have made this a wonderful place to get away from it all and have gone beyond in making your stay a memorable one. Thanks again for a GREAT time! Roger and Sherri Lane

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the place. It is very romantic and private. Everything is well kept and very clean. Everything they claim to have there is there so there is no jeed to leave. Owners were eapecially nice and accomodating. They really pay attention to detail and make aure that they put time and effort into making your stay as you imagined. Defintely reccomend this place to anyone who is looking for a romantic private getaway or just a visit with mother nature. Will defenitely go back ourselves.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Michael was responsive, personable, and helpful from the time I submitted questions online through the end of my stay via email, texts, and phone calls.

A situation occurred that made me not able to stay the weekend I booked. I was going to take it as a loss, but when I explained the uncommon circumstances to Michael, he allowed me to re-book!

Upon my arrival, Michael walked us through the inside and around the property, pointing out amenities free for us to use and showing us how things worked.

The cabin was simply wonderful! Enough rustic charm with a modern touch (Wi-Fi, cable, washer & dryer, nice appliances, jacuzzi, etc.) about 15 min from Lake City which has shopping plazas. The beds were very comfortable, the view of the lake was spectacular. We enjoyed making a fire and roasting marshmallows (yes, even in June!), sitting out on pier looking at the water and catching glimpses of wildlife. Michael and Terri have done an excellent job making it feel like home, a respite, and blessed haven. There is a sweet peace and presence there that makes it hard to leave. I definitely plan to return and after telling my family and friends, and showing them my pictures, they want to experience it too!

Quaint, clean, and cozy with all the modern conveniences for "luxury" camping!

  • 5 of 5

My family used to go camping when I was a little girl. So, I booked the cabin for a country get away for my mother and I. It has modern appliances, Wi-Fi, and everything you need to make it a home away from home. We went tubing on the Ichnetucknee River and really enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit when we returned.

Refreshed and Recharged. The Ultimate Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the cabin for my birthday weekend. We were looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. This cabin was PERFECT! You don't want to leave. You have everything you could possibly need to enjoy time in the outdoors. We loved having access to so many simple things to do: fishing, fire pit, kayaks, hot tub, BBQ grill and a comfy living room to catch a movie & nap while it rained. Life seemed to slow down the weekend we were there and it was exactly what we needed! We enjoyed the quiet nature of the cabin that allowed us to enjoy the serenade from frogs, crickets, and birds.

Michael is simply the best!! He is extremely gracious and genuinely wants you to enjoy his little slice of heaven. He and Terri have clearly poured their absolute best into their cabin to make it a retreat for all who are fortune to enter its doors. Book this cabin! You will love your time here and be looking at the calendar for a return visit!!

My fiancée and I rented Michael's cabin this past weekend for my birthday and it was absolutely amazing. The cabin was impeccable and Michael was fantastic. It had everything we needed and more. We will definitely be back and recommend to our friends and family.
