Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Floral City - Charming Cove Cottage

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


Lose yourself in the charm, beauty and the tranquil surroundings of this cozy Floral City country cottage. Wood beams, wood floors and wrap around beader board 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: Also 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.

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

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.

The house was comfortable and it was furnished as advertised. Neighbors were exceptionally nice. The bike trail being close was a plus.

Very Cute, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Cove Cottage was indeed adorable-very clean and nicely decorated. There were lots of windows so the cottage was open and airy. The location could not be beat- if it is outdoor adventure you are seeking, it is only minutes away. I loved relaxing on the huge front porch after a full day of hiking. I hope to return!
