Overview

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.

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

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was the perfect size for us, and great spot for our dog. Great location for access to biking trails. Heard the sandhill crates every morning, and saw pileated woodpeckers. If the bed was better and bath sink didn't drip, it would have been five stars.

Very nice place for a good price

  • 4 of 5

Place on the inside was very nice. Washing machine and dryer were very handy to have. Didn't use the gas grill that was on the front porch because it was so dry around there. Didn't want to set it on the wood floor of the porch or the ground. Bed needed a slight adjustment to it because it sloped down on the one side. Did not look to see exactly what the problem was. Quiet location to relax and enjoy. Definitely pleased with our stay.

Absolutely Wonďerful😀

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was awesome and very clean.. Owner was just a phone call away if I needed to ask questions, The neighbors, Betty and John were so helpful, and very nice people. Floral City is quaint. We walked on the state railroad trail several times with our Boston Terrier. The Cozy Cove Cottage sits on a large wooded lot just out of town.. We'll equiped...The pictures do not do it justice. We definitely plan on returning.

So Peaceful and Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation with our little kitty Lucy and this was just the place! The cottage is so cozy and comfortable. The surrounding countryside is so beautiful. We put our canoe in at Nobleton and thoroughly enjoyed canoeing the Withlacoochee. Had a great pizza at Angelo's in Inverness and were honored to get a banana cream pie from the wonderful neighbors, John and Betty. We definitely plan on coming back. My only complaint would be the bed. While it was very comfy, it was definitely on the squeaky side.

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!
