About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

YOU DESERVE THIS!

Lose yourself in the charm, beauty and the tranquil surroundings of this cozy Floral City country cottage. Wood beams, wood floors and wrap around beadboard warmly embrace you when you cross the threshold to unwind and recharge. Hike or ride on the Withlacoochee State Rails to Trails' bike trail 0.2 miles away. Bike rental at Hampton's Edge 0.2 miles on your way to the trail.

Our 800 square foot cottage sleeps 2-4 people.

Floral City holds a delightful Strawberry Festival in March.

Beautiful Rainbow Springs - a must see and feel - can be reached in 40 minutes. Swimming in any of the many refreshing, invigorating Florida Springs is like none other. Secluded cave exploration awaits you fifteen minutes away at Peace Caves. Airboat rides, horseback riding, and miniature golf are also close by. For an exciting evening, attend the races at the Citrus County Speedway just down the road. Shopping, restaurants and theaters are within minutes.

VRBO listing #94799: Located down the country road from this property is our sister cottage, another sanctuary to relax and unwind, Lotus Lake House, a 2 bedroom/2 bath which sits on Lake Consuela. It sleeps 6-7 people.

VRBO Listing #266094: Just to the north of Cove Cottage is Cypress Cottage, our brother cottage, a beautiful rustic lake view cottage with wood exterior and knotty pine interior walls, ceilings, beams, fireplace and charm galore. It is a 1000 square foot two bedroom/one bath (shower) with full amenities. Outside you can enjoy the platform porch, two-picnic table pavillion, fire pit, deck, bikes and boats.

All three properties are ideal for multi-family or group vacations, retreats, etc.

Our families have been vacationing in Floral City since 1968. We've enjoyed this area so much so that we've acquired these additional properties. We hope you'll enjoy any or all of them as much as our families do.

Busch Gardens is 75 minutes to the southeast.

Disney World is 80 minutes to the east.

This property is located 75 minutes north of Tampa Airport.

(Charming Cove cannot accommodate same day bookings, nor bookings with less than five days notice.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Mary, for sharing your little piece of restland retreat. Reminded me of being back in the Carolina mountains. Peaceful, restful and relaxing! A joy to be at and hard to leave...a chance to step back in time and regroup. Being next door to Floral City was a plus. George

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the charming Cove Cottage over the Christmas weekend. It is definitely charming with all the amenities you could want. It is really the most charming little place with a lovely wooden interior! We were pleasantly surprised. It is tucked away in the forest and very peaceful. It is the perfect jumping off point for exploring all the springs in the area - we visited Rainbow springs, Silver springs and Crystal river, all easy drives from the cottage. The best thing about this little cottage is that it's pet friendly and we were able to bring our dog, Toby with. He had the best time ever. We definitely plan to return for longer next time, as there is so much to see and do up there!

Thanks Mary, for being such a wonderful host! I hope to meet you in person some day!

Very secluded. Comfortable king bed. Beats a cramped hotel room. We will be back.

The sweet and friendly neighbor across the street made us a delicious banana cream pie. Thanks Betty.

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 4 of 5

We are South Florida residents but we frequently have the need to disconnect. Mary's cabin was perfect! The home is cozy, clean and quiet. We loved our stay there and have every intention of returning.

What a quaint cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We often come up to the area so that we can bike on the Withlacoochee Trail. We have stayed at many places over the years and I think this may be our new favorite. Everything was so cozy and we had a wonderful trip. It was close enough to the trail that we could just ride straight from the house and not have to load up the bikes on the car every day. And Ms. Dudley was so great to deal with. We had originally scheduled our vacation earlier in October but had an unexpected visit from Hurricane Matthew on that weekend. She understood our situation and was kind enough to let us reschedule for another weekend when all the trouble was over.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home in a quiet secluded area. Floral City is a one stoplight town that has managed to retain it's "old Florida" charm, yet it's close to anything you need. The Withlacootchie Rail Trail is minutes from your doorstep, the Gen. James A. Van Fleet trail is 30 minutes away. Besides the massive Live Oak Trees, some of my favorite things were the strawberry milkshakes at Ferris Citris and the cabbage rolls and eggplant parm at the Old World Restaurant. The art gallery should not be missed. Looking forward to my next visit.
