About William Roberts

My wife Nancy and I, William, live in Polk City, Florida. Nancy is from New Jersey and I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. We met at the First Baptist Church in West Hollywood, Florida.

I served four years in the Air Force. Nancy and I attended the Bible Baptist Seminary now known as Arlington Baptist College in Arlington, Texas. Here we studied for the ministry and I graduated in 1962.

We organized a church and Christian School in south Florida where we served for 14 years. From there we moved to Ocala, Florida and organized Abundant Funds, a fund raising company for private Christian Schools serving schools in 24 states. In 2008 Abundant Funds merged with another Christian Company and I went into 'semi' retirement. I still work with Christian Schools part time with a company founded by my youngest son

William Roberts purchased this cabin in 2005

Why William Roberts chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Nancy and I wanted a place close by to get away from it all and a place where our four sons and their families could enjoy and relax with their families (sixteen grandchildren and two great). The river cabin is also a place we can invite friends on special occasions. We had a choice between the Gulf and the River. Nancy chose the river and it has proven to be an excellent choice.

Our cabin on the river offers scenery and relaxation. Unfortunately we are only using the cabin about 25% of the time. Our bills continue 100% of the time. We decided to place the cabin on the rental program and make it available to others.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a rustic setting on the river. This is a total change of scenery and being on the water is super relaxing. Across the river from the cabin is the Weeki Wachee Preserve where we observe all types of wildlife including a variety of birds. The river is full of many varieties of fish and manatees..

This place was everything we were looking for. You do need to bring all food you'll want to eat (duh!) and TP and dish soap (if you want to hand wash dishes). They have a dish washer, and we were alotted 2 packets to run it. They supply all the towels and washcloths you need. I didn't see if they had laundry detergent for guests to use for the washer...

We arrived about 11pm. Easy keyless entry. Grocery store about 10-15 min drive away. I cannot WAIT to get back. I could live here indefinitely!!!!

Owner's Response: Great Review, Thank You. Sara is correct you do need to bring your own brand of TP and dish soap for hand washing dishes. We only give you enough to get started. The washer and dryer are on site for your convenience. A great place to enjoy family/friends and RELAX. Looking forward to your return visit William & Nancy

Superb stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ahhh, how I wish I owned this cabin! It was such a treasure. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. Usually, I have to warm up to a place before I feel comfortable. But not the case here. The entire place was so clean and uncluttered. The bathroom looked like it had never been used; sparkling white! Everything was where it should be, even down to the electrical outlets. The AC & hot water run perfectly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Weeki Wachee. We did go to the busy state park for the kids' sakes (be sure to get a $2 blow mold mermaid from the machine outside gift shop), but my husband & I couldn't wait to get back to "our" cabin :) We felt envied by all the river goers, as they drifted by eyeing this adorable cabin. The river is so clear, cold & refreshing! We saw manatees every day. And no mosquitos?! Only some no-see-ums. Morning cup of coffee on the dock was the best.

And can I just say, it was so nice to not have 101 rules and regulations to follow while at the cabin. Check out was a breeze! Can't wait to come back. I was already checking my calendar when I got home.

Owner's Response: A Tremendous review. I agree a cup of coffee on the dock or porch early morning (6-8) and watch the RIVER WAKE UP . The birds begin singing, squirrels begin running around looking for nuts or what ever, lizards looking for bugs to feed on, rabbits hoping around, fish jumping and butterfly's decorating the scene. This is my favorite time to just relax and commune with GOD. Nancy & I look forward to your family returning to the River & River Cabin.

The perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on the weeki wachee river for the past 5 years and this was the very best location. In the past we have stayed in homes on a canal. Staying right on the clear part of the river was such a great time. We could swim up the river and just float back down to the cabin all day long. It was also fun watching all the kayakers passing throughout the day. We caught blue claw crabs right off the decks and saw manatee swim by several times. The two decks were wonderful to sit on and relax after a long day on river and we were able to tie up our boats easily. Having the gas station right down the road was very convenient as well if you ran out of something. If we decide to stay on the river for a 6th year, this will be the house we rent. Thank you so much! Our time at your cabin home was wonderful and a blessing.

Amazing location perfect river get away!

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this to anyone especially those who like nature and want a river retreat. Able to launch own kayak from dock or use canoe included with rental. Clean fully furnished down to extra sandwich bags to pack items on the river. I would recommend packing extra toilet paper as they only supply one roll. The gas grill was convenient as well. Grill was a little dirty but could be overlooked given all the other positive things about this property.

Owner's Response: Your review is appreciated. The grill is difficult to keep clean but a cleaning brush is provided to clean it before each use. Nancy & I are thrilled your family found the Cabin clean and fully equipped and enjoyed the canoe . William & Nancy Roberts

3 Nights of Beauty, Relaxing, Wildlife, Unforgettable Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hello, 2nd time at this cabin!! A repeat customer!! Just amazing...On the best part of the river. I have stayed at many different homes over the last 20 years and this is the best part of the river if you are looking for quiet . And if you paddle just a little upstream there are no houses for miles and just pure blue crystal clear water!! Sitting on the dock we would receive so many compliments on how beautiful the house was (I only wished we owned it)....The kayakers would ask for the property owner because it is in a such a great location!! The canoe was wonderful and very steady. We paddled for hours upstream...Saw a few manatees over the weekend and a special egret friend bird. The crabs below by the dock were in abundance!! Mullet jumping at night and frogs chirping was so peaceful...The owners were awesome and called to make sure we got in ok and if everything was good. The price for this house is perfect too if you are on a budget compared to other houses. I cant say enough about the perfect location. We will be back a 3rd time I am sure!!! Books up quick so make your reservations now!!

Did I mention we also had a small wedding ceremony on the dock!!!?? It was perfect with the background and pillars that we decorated with white streamers and white balloons!! Made it extra special since I performed the ceremony...Something I will never forget and cherish.

There should be more Stars than Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We returned yesterday from a 4 night stay here.....it is AMAZING....clean....comfortable....extremely well equipped! I could go on & on but I will say that I would recommend this cabin to anyone & everyone (& I already have :) ) Awesome location and right on the river! Weeki Wachee park is but maybe 4-5 short miles of country road traffic...there is also another park (Rogers) just a couple miles away. Excellent choice of places to eat from the normal chains to down home restaurants with local flair. Close to Pine Island for the beach & Bayport for fishing & the Bayport Inn serves excellent food & beverages...with an outside tiki bar & friendly visitors that land on the rails to hope for a bite.

I can't say enough to properly describe the cabin...well equipped for the little ones also...lots of fluffy towels....am ice maker...washer/dryer.....comfy furniture & beds & movies...puzzles & games for rainy days.

We will be returning...I have a back injured that hindered some of our activity....a canoe is furnished for your use...with plenty of life jackets & paddles...we were unable to take advantage of that due to my back but next time For Sure!! The duel docks are perfect for watching the steady stream of kayaks & canoes...we didn't see any manatees's..too many boats so they probably stayed in the canals....maybe next time :) I Highly Recommend this for your vaca & the owner is extremely details oriented & everything you could want is supplied....just bring your food & drinks! Amazing vacation...even with a bad back!
