Fully renovated, climate controlled with a spa-like private outdoor bath-house
I enjoy the art of living well, creatively. Nothing pleases me more than to share my little slice of paradise with friends and family. When life gives you you pull up your boot straps and make some amazing lemonade. Oh so sweet with a little zip, I enjoy the art of living well creatively with great food, friendships & a healthy lifestyle close to nature. While my kids are off into the world creating their own amazing life adventures, you’ll find me tending our homestead, baking in the kitchen, singing & playing music, practicing yoga or planning my own next adventure.
Judi purchased this Guest House in 1956
Why Judi chose Lutz
Years ago, and seemingly a lifetime has passed since I first stepped foot onto this Old Florida homestead with its cypress trees, sleepy Spanish moss and a breeze that blew the scent of lake through this cypress and heart wood pine saltbox style home. As a college student I rented the house, designed and built by it’s owners in 1956 while they were wintering in Honduras; little did I know I would return as a full time caregiver and marry into the family. If these walls could talk….babies were born, gardens have come and gone, there were birthdays and celebrations of life, marriages & anniversaries, house concerts, meditation retreats, school and scout parties and more dinner gatherings than I can count. Nearly 30 years later, with lots of sweat equity, the passage of loved ones and a few tears, I continue to call this place home and now share it with others, with joy and gratitude as Little Cypress Guest Suites.
What makes this Guest House unique
As a super host with over 80 5 star reviews (as of June 2019), I love the art of hosting and offer a beautiful unique experience convenient to all Tampa Bay has to offer, yet a world away. Thank you for considering my home for your vacation.

Loved it !
Judi had everything you would need for a comfortable vacation. Miss Ruby was a joy..... glamping at its best. Would definitely like to rent her again.
Thanks Diane for booking Miss Ruby. I hope to host you again in the future.
A unique get away
This is a super cool, cozy camper with a character all its own. Judi was a wonderful and friendly hostesses. The grounds are pretty, quiet and inviting. The lake is a little gem. The bed is big and comfy. The shower house is a little chilly when the weather is cold, but we absolutely loved our time there. What a great little place to stay.
Thanks Derrick for booking Miss Ruby. I look forward to hosting you again in the future.
