Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place and wish we could come next year. Park-like setting. Cottage is older but full of charm. Quiet small town atmosphere and close to bike trail. Stephen had kayaks we could use which was a nice surprise .

We loved this beautiful cottage, where we spent 3 memorable months in 2018.

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a gorgeous, quiet spot for your next stay, we highly recommend this Charming Lakefront Cottage. It was all we hoped for and so much more. The comfortable, sparkling-clean cottage is set back from the road, nicely decorated, and very well maintained. The large, secluded yard is full of spectacular huge Live Oak trees, ferns, beautiful blooming bushes, and even has it's own pair of friendly Sandhill Cranes. We were very pleased to have so many amenities provided and appreciated comfortable furniture as well as air conditioning and heating units that were dependable and quiet. We loved being able to bicycle to the Withlacoochee State Bike Trail.

We're very grateful to Steve, the owner. He was anxious to help however he could to make our stay enjoyable and provided us with many interesting facts about Floral City and it's history. It's evident that he cares about this cottage and puts a lot of thought and effort into providing a top-notch vacation rental.

lake cottage

  • 4 of 5

The place was old but very nice. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean it was. The yard had plenty of space to park my boat and the public boat landing was only a few yards away. The lake was interesting and the birds were every where. I was very happy to be there.
