Nice place for scallop trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while scalloping for the weekend and it was perfect! There was room to park the boat and truck and the cottage is close to crystal river boat ramp. We also had 2 dogs and he fenced yard made it much easier than if we were at a hotel. We were even granted an early check in. Thanks Dennis and Deborah!

Cute place for a short stay...

  • 4 of 5

This place is perfect for people looking for a mini trip. The landscape was lush and green, the inside was well kept, and the bed was very comfortable. The boats were in a convenient location, the fenced in yard was awesome for the dogs, and the water made for a great view out the back window. Debra and Dennis were kind people and made sure to give us tips on local hot spots. They greeted us upon arrival and were very helpful throughout our stay.

My complaints...

We normally prefer to stay at the cottage our whole trip, but with no full size stove and refrigerator it made it hard to cook meals in. The mosquitoes and deer flies were also REALLY bad. We went out and bought tiki torch fluid, candles, and spray, but still left with bites all over. I'd like to say we loved our stay, but we definitely didn't get to enjoy the outdoors as much as we would've liked due to the bugs.
