The Hammock House on the Wekiva River is a gorgeous resort rental cabin. It hosts 4 bedrooms/4 bathrooms, stone fireplace, huge decks under an Oak Hammock right on the Wekiva River with 2 canoes available to guests. Looking for a quiet getaway? This vacation rental is a jewel in the woods, yet so close to Orlando, Sanford, Lake Mary, and Mount Dora.

This rental home is great for your vacation getaway! Perfect for horseback riding, hiking, or just relaxing. You will not believe the wildlife in this park!!!

Great for reunions, vacations.
This home is owned by Rock Springs Run Reserve (Florida State Parks). It is operated by Jamie and Deb Zito from Cactus Jack's Trail Rides LLC. We take pride in offering this unbelievable home to the public for enjoyment.
Deb Zito has owned and operated Cactus Jack's Trail Rides LLC for the last 5 years in Ocala, Florida. When the stables at Rock Springs Run Reserve became available for a new horseback riding vendor, Deb and Jamie Zito decided to take on this beautiful new location. Along with the horseback riding, the Hammock House rental seemed like a great addition. We have always had customers ask 'Is there a romantic place to stay?' Now we can offer this amazing home to riders, and non-riders.....everyone will enjoy it!
Jamie Zito purchased this house in 2013
This home is all made from pecky cypress. It was originally a rancher's home. It sits in a 14,000 acre park and is right on the Wekiva River.
It has a barn/stable for guests to bring their own horses, or they can go riding at the riding stable in the park. Hiking is encouraged and wildlife is seen daily.
Our family is so large we don't fit well just anywhere but this home worked well. We had twenty something people, toddler, baby and three horses. We did use living quarters horse trailer there as well for extra sleeping area. Rented extra horses at the stable so everyone who wanted to got to go on trail riding. Enjoyed the Wekiva River in kayaks right from the backyard everyday as we had perfect weather. Great nature hikes yet only short drive to mall and grocery store. Many good family memories which are cherished forever. Great place to get away from it all yet convenient.
This house and property was perfect for our family gathering. Quiet setting and very spacious. We loved it.
Our huge family had the most wonderful week!!
We just love activities in nature and this location was so much fun for the whole family. Everyone had a really great time. The weather was picture perfect the entire week. We went horse back riding on great trails in the State Park, kayaking on the Wekiva River right from the back yard, hiking on trails/roads right there at hammock house, family bike riding on paved roads at nearby Seminole Wekiva trail, and drove to the spring heads for hiking and swimming. We enjoyed all the wildlife viewing. Campfires every night. The kitchen was great for cooking and feeding our huge crew. The home is spacious enough to accommodate our crowd and was clean. The guys played pool on the pool table while we were cooking. Restaurants and stores are only a short drive away.
Recommend you bring bottled water to drink because tap water has a sulfur smell.
We will definitely be back again next year.
Great stay go to cactus Jack to ride horses will be back. Saw deer, bobcat,wild turkeys and more.
I am sorry to just be writing this review so late as we stayed here over a year ago with couple different families and all of our horses..... we fell in love with this paradise. Thrilled to be back to this site and booking it again for a special get together! Last time we were there, we not only rode our horses on great trails but we went paddling down on the river from the back yard and found good fishing along the way. I brought mountain bike and enjoyed peddling some of the trails. We had a rainy day which turned out to be a blessing because we played games provided in the house and pool (which I hadn't played in years) together which made us laugh alot! Wonderful memories and excited to return soon now.
I reserved the Hammock House to host a large BBQ celebration for my wedding reception. We had family staying in all of the bedrooms and hosted a party of about 85 people and the spaciousness made it perfect! We set up five tables with chairs under the car port, a small acoustic band under the front porch, a row of corn hole boards in the front yard, a cup cake stand on the card table, and the food spread on the kitchen table. All of the bedrooms were very spacious with their own bathroom attached.
The grounds were beautiful with turkeys, deer, and canoes. It feels very remote but has the conveniences of a stocked kitchen, A/C, internet access, and television. People also enjoyed the pool table. I would highly recommend for a family gathering, holiday get together, or even just to get away for the weekend.
The decks around the house are fantastic and spacious, overall great value for the money!
A couple things that could be improved: The place was mostly clean, but we did have to sweep off the cob webs from the lights and ceilings in the car port and porch and it looked like it had been a very long time since the rugs have been cleaned (the kitchen and living spaces in the main house were dust free and nice). There were some dead bugs here and there in the corners. The separate bedroom to the left of the carport was dirtier than the main house, with crackers in the side couch, a couple of roaches, and some dust. The gate at the front has to be closed and locked at all times which made us have to have someone up at the gate letting people in. TV reception is spotty on a cloudy day. Motiff slightly outdated, but appropriate for a rustic lodge.
This resort rental is rural, but 10 minutes from mall, restaurants, movie theaters. 15 minutes from hospital. Bring your own horse or trail riding available within the park. House is riverfront for canoes and fishing.
