About Bert Terwilliger

I grew up in Tampa so I already had a love for water.I came up to Weeki Wachee to visit friends and rented a cottage there. After a couple weekends there I became hooked on the natural beauty of the area and the water.

Bert Terwilliger purchased this house in 1997

Why Bert Terwilliger chose Spring Hill

I purchased this property as a weekend getaway from the hustle of the city. I could not wait for friday to head out to Weeki Wachee.

I have since moved up here and now live just five minutes away.Now I offer the place so others can enjoy the nature and beauty.

WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Burt's place. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The springs were great and we saw several manatee!!! We enjoyed ourselves so much we ended up staying an extra day and Burt went out of his way to make the booking process easy !!

Loved sitting on the dock!! Good times. :)

  • 5 of 5

House was good. Had everything we needed. A plus was bringing the dog which she loved swimming in the canal. The boat ramp was excellent! You can launch your boat and kayaks safely. Most places don’t offer a boat ramp. Big yard for the dog. Plenty of parking. Manatees and egrets galore. Mullet jumping like mad. Cute place. Owner stopped by to check if we needed anything. Bert was a really nice man and we chatted for a bit. :). Yes we will come back. Thanks again!! Bye bye Weeki. Until we meet again!!

Most relaxing vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bert's cottage during the month of Feb. The cottage is very comfortable and clean. It was wonderful having the dishwasher, washer and dryer. The location is ideal. A short paddle up the canal and you are on one of the most beautiful and pristine rivers in Florida. We loved watching off the dock for Manatee and turtles and watching the Mullets leaping in the air. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook or you're close by to several excellent reasonably priced restaurants. We brought our own kayaks and were able to check out the Chaz and Silver Springs. We're looking forward to staying at Bert's cottage again next Feb.

On the canal

  • 4 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay. Bert went out of his way to make our trip more enjoyable. We used the kayaks and little boat in the canals and the river, we did see manatees, that was a lot fun.

Beautiful location - property needs a lot of improvement. Host was nice & responsive.

  • 3 of 5

Location on the cool springs of Weeki Wachee canal was perfect. We enjoyed the water so much and kayaking down the river to Rogers Park was super fun. The house is perfect for socializing with comfortable (if out-dated) furniture. The A/C, Wifi and ice maker worked great. However the manufactured home was very run down but "clean enough". Needs a lot of work and am pretty sure there is lots of mold there. We were all sniffling the whole time there and I saw some mold along gaping baseboards. Also squirrels (I hope) were heard in the house walls or crawl space? House could also use some written instructions about operating DVR and checking out. Host was very responsibe and helpful about local weather and restaurants. I think this rental may be a good value but you get what you pay for. Home just provides the basics at a reasonable price.
