39th Wedding Anniversary Spent In A Nice Gated Resort Cottage.
We came to tour, dine, and fish. We did all three by staying in a nice cottage which is across from the lodge with a view of the lake. We tried to watch the sunset a couple nights, but it was too cold to stay out for long. LOL. If you like to bake you need to bring your pie, cake, and casserole pans. The kitchen has a gas stove (no timer) and coffee maker (we travel alot and use our own). The landlords were helpful with a couple things. Space was made to park our boat. There is room for two cars but our truck is longer than the parking space allowed by the resort and the boat just made it. So now there is room. The neighbors were also friendly and helpful. WiFi can be picked up free from the lodge. Just to mention, Salt Spring Square is just outside the resort. At this time it has a beauty shop, real estate office, laundromat, post office, visitor center, fishing shop, restaurant and country store with pizzeria, maybe more. And a Dollar General nearby. We love to tour and on our list for this trip was Marjorie Kinnan Rawling’s Historic State Park, author of The Yearling. Great place and I love her kitchen. Afterwards we ate at The Yearling Restaurant. My husband ate the Free Range Venison Sandwich, I tried sides of cheese grits, fried green tomatoes, and tomatoes and okra. I tried the tomatoes and okra for the first time and enjoyed it (wasn’t slimy at all). We will definitely go back there. We had to come back a second time to visit the Florida State Natural History Museum and Butterfly Garden. It’s around an hour away. Also on our list is fishing. My husband especially loves Bass fishing. We hired a guide and found that it is the way to go to catch fish in a new area. We might come back again.
Thank you for staying at our cottage. We will put some baking and casserole pans in the cottage and definitely provide a timer.
We appreciate the information and would love to have you come back and stay with us again.

Cottage in peaceful community with a lake view
We loved the location in a lakeside resort community. It was a 1-minute walk to the edge of the lake, which we could see from the cottage. We sat by the lake and watched the sandhill cranes and sunset each evening. It was also nice being near the resort's lodge, pool, pickleball courts, etc. We could use the lodge's wi-fi without leaving the cottage! The cottage was neat, with a well-equipped kitchen; TV had a large variety of cable channels. Kayaks and other recreational items were made available to us. The cottage owners were especially kind in accommodating for our needs in several ways.
2 restaurants at entrance to resort as well as a laundromat, Dollar General, Tackle shop;. There is a small grocery store nearby. Bass Champion Restaurant is nearby.
