Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Wellborn - Do Duck Inn on Bethea Lake

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful lakeside log cabin for rent. It is fully equipped with cookware and linens. You just need to bring your clothes and food. It is only 40 feet from the water's edge of Bethea Lake, located in Suwannee County, Wellborn, Florida. Wildlife such as wild turkeys, various species of ducks and waterfowl, deer, and raccoons are frequent visitors.

Alligators and various species of fish such as bass, bluegill, specs, and catfish are found in the lake. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place to spend a long or short vacation. Great for bass fishermen, artists, and writers. Also a wonderful winter retreat from the snow. Snowbirds welcome.

Awesome Place To Relax!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I enjoyed a lovely two-night stay at the Do Duck Inn. This is a beautifully well kept cabin on the lake and is the perfect place to just relax!. Michael is a friendly and gracious host and so accommodating to our needs, including the check in time. Michael walked us through the inside and around the property, pointing out amenities free for us to use and showing us how things worked. He offered lots of suggestions of places to visit and answered all of our questions. We would stay again if we get back to this area. Highly recommend.

A time we will never forget

  • 5 of 5

I rented the cabin for my girlfriend and I to get away and have a relaxing time alone to recharge and decompress from the craziness of the daily grind. I had no idea that I stumbled upon a little slice of heaven because no pictures or description can do justice to the majestic beauty you will find at the Do Duck Inn. First off Michael is a true genuine person who cares about the experience that his guests have and he wants everything to be perfect, which it was. He walked us around the property showing us all of the amenities we could enjoy during our stay and made sure that we were comfortable. The cabin was absolutely gorgeous and immaculately clean and the view from the lake is breathtaking.

It was truly a time we will never forget. I asked the love of my life to marry me during our stay and we will definitely return to the Do Duck Inn to enjoy our anniversaries and special times to come again. Thanks Michael for the special memories. You truly have a little slice of heaven at the Do Duck Inn.

Honest, professional & gracious

  • 5 of 5

We were unable to visit due to the tropical storm heading directly to their area & when I called 2 days before the arrival date they offered a full refund! It is rare these days to find people so kind & considerate of the circumstances that were out of our control & not greedy & selfish in business! Many hotel locations in Florida will not give a full or partial refund due tropical weather. I am very touched at the kindness & will definitely be rescheduling to see this little bit of heaven as soon as possible!

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.
