About Jamie Zito

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

Why Jamie Zito chose Sorrento

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Hammock House wedding!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my weekend wedding at the hammock house and so did my guests! There was plenty of space indoors and out for mingling and activities. I only had a few minor issues : some lights were out or dim and could use replacing, the pool table area was amazing but the table and cues could use some repair and new felt and as expected the well water was stinky but it was okay for showering and we brought bottled for coffee and cooking. We had an amazing time overall and will definitely be back for another stay!

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

This house was used for my wedding, just the setting I wanted! Laid back, relaxed, calm and peaceful. I could easily live full time in this home! My family loved it so much, we plan on renting again in the future for the family to have simple getaway still being close to home.

Our group had a delightful weekend.

  • 4 of 5

The spacious house allowed small gatherings for various activities and then all be together if desired. Our group of ten brought our horses; the stables and fencing are showing signs of much deferred maintenance. However, we managed to keep the humans and animals safe. Rock Springs Run State Park offers many trails for equestrians, bikers and hikers. Our group rode in the mornings and canoed/kayaked in the afternoon. The Wekiva River is interesting but can be challenging to the novice. One needs more than a few days to explore all the way upstream to Kelly Park and then downstream to the St John's River. Hammock House is a great place to spend a weekend or weeks. It's definitely a place to relax and enjoy nature and take a peek back in time to what early Florida might have been. Sulfur smelling water gets attention from those who have not experienced it before but many oldtimers have lived their entire lives without water conditioners.

Nice Property, rough around the edges.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property is spacious and perfect for large groups. The problems are as follows:

-Well water is highly sulfuric and basically undrinkable. You also have to shower in it.

-The space is mostly clean but spiderwebs are in every corner.

-Communication with management could be better.

-Online check-out says 11am but according to the sign on property it's 10am.

These are small easily fixable issues that I hope are addressed in the future.
