About Terry & Tim

Tim & Terry Ross. This home was Terry's parents 'winter/snowbird' home and has been a fun destination for the family to get out of the cold Ohio winters! Located close to the Harris Chain of Lakes -great for boating --- nice walk and boardwalk of Lake Eustis, etc! PLEASE WRITE OR CALL. We'd be happy to help you have a warm and sunny winter!

Why Terry & Tim chose Central Florida

Great location downtown Eustis! Close to lake and the heart of Eustis' shopping & restaurants. Enjoy the boardwalk! Walk or bike around to enjoy the quaint city life of Eustis. OR--minutes from many golf courses and boating ramps!!! Located in central Florida, one can easily get to either coast in a little over an hour!

What makes this house unique

Extremely clean & well-kept small cottage with a great location. Large GATED yard/property, fabulous driveway for larger vehicles, and beautiful lake in back yard. Reasonable vacation get-away to enjoy Central Florida or drive to Disney or either coast in under an hour!

This was our first time staying at one of the Ross's residents. The house had everything we needed to have wonderful vacation with our dog. The fenced in back yard was perfect for our dog to run and enjoy herself. We enjoyed the shopping and antique car show in Eustis. We were close to Mount Dora and Tavares which provides a wide variety of restaurants and shopping. The home is centrally located and allowed us to take day trips and return to our dog in the evening. We enjoyed a glass bottom boat ride at Silver springs and a boat ride up the Dora Canal, and a trip to the Villages and Ocala. We definitely recommend this home to friends and hope to come back and stay again.

Wonderful !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have rented a home from Terry and Tim, and the accommodations and care could not be better. They are delightful people and added to the joy of our stay. The location is terrific and everything was A-OK. We have already booked a stay for 2017, and give this home our highest possible rating. Try it, you'll love it.

Relaxing, tidy, roomy cottage in Eustis

  • 5 of 5

Your little house fit our needs just perfectly. Plenty of room and so neat and tidy. We had everything we needed.

We will surely recommended Egret Cottage to anyone looking for a get-a-way in that area. We ate at the Oyster place twice. The broiled shrimp were scrumptious too.

Great Location, Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with renting a house for a vacation and I was very pleased and impressed with the Egret Cottage as well as Terry & Tim's work they put in to make sure everything was clean in the cottage and that it had what we needed for a comfortable and relaxed stay. It was a perfect location for us to visit with friends and family in Eustis & Mt Dora, take a trip to New Smyrna beach (couldn't beat 85 degree weather in December!), visit the shops of Mt Dora, as well as go to downtown Orlando to the SAK Comedy Club. We even played some of the board games that are available in the cottage late one night not to mention tickling the ivory's on the piano. We will look to stay here again when visiting the Eustis/Mt Dora area again. Thank you.

Great place, great experience.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property with all the facilities needed for people who just want to get away from the stress of the city or for people trying to make a transition into a new place. That was our case. Terry and Tim made this experience more enjoyable. They were really kind with us and always accessible. The house was very clean and decorated with great taste. The patio was always kept in excellent conditions. It was great to have met Terry and Tim and our family is very thankful for everything.
