About the property

Perfect getaway, minutes to fishing/kayaking/beaches, professionally decorated.

Treat your loved one to a couple of nights at Heron's Retreat in this newly renovated 1 bedroom cottage nestled into the trees in the Steinhatchee Landing development. As owners we are very strong believers in delivering an excellent experience at an incredible price. We want to be the best in luxury and the most affordable too. Why not get pampered without breaking the bank. Check out our reviews and see what other guests are saying about us. Our cottage got more 5 star reviews in 2016 than any other property in Steinhatchee.

Heron's Retreat sits creekside with a gently flowing creek immediately off the back porch and walking trails that wind through the tree hammock and down to the river. It is important to note of the eight honeymoon cottages, ONLY the creekside cottages have back porches that offer a view of the creek and walking trails.

Heron's Retreat is professionally decorated with some gorgeous artwork and décor that makes it stand out from any other property. Newly painted interior and exterior, you will find the cottage to be immaculate! Brand new flat screen TV's and bluetooth audio system add to the quality experience and ours is by far the most updated of all the honeymoon cottages.

The back porch will create a feeling of being immersed in the trees with high end patio furniture for a perfect cup of morning coffee, or evening beverage. Just listening to the creek and birds will make it hard to ever leave. Wait till you hang out on the on the swing, you will love it!!!

Brand new posturepedic pillow top mattress, with 1000 thread count linens, with a lofty down-like comforter with Duvet cover invites you for a luxuriously restful sleep. The brand new convertible sofa will provide additional sleeping if you decide to bring the little ones.

Steinhatchee Landing Development is an amazing 30 acre preserve with a full time staff of groundskeepers that ensure that everything remains beautiful. With weddings a commonplace, the onsite Chapel, and Koi ponds provide some amazing photograpy moments. Park your boat right at the community dock, light a fire at one of the firepits by the river, or just relax on one of the rocking chairs at the waters edge. Also feel free to use the community pool and indoor spa and sauna to enhance your Heron's Retreat experience.

Why Abby and Steve Hale chose Steinhatchee

This property is simply amazing! We have been in love with Steinhatchee for 15 years, and this is our second vacation property in the area. When the opportunity came up to purchase a Honeymoon Cottage in Steinhatchee Landing resort, we jumped on it. These cottages are soooo Cute!!! Never have we seen a more romantic place. The fireplace and the jetted tub, combined with a porch that is to die for, is a "see it for yourself" kind of thing. The grounds are outstanding and well taken care of.

What makes this cottage unique

Resort lifestyle in a fishing village. Excellent amenities including jetted tub, fireplace viewing, creekside porch, petting zoo on site, sauna, exercise room, and 10 person spa next to the pool area. Did we mention, boat slip on first come first serve basis.

Beautiful and quaint little getaway

  • 5 of 5

The small touches and how cute the place was made it perfect for us. We were there with a group of people to go scalloping. Captain Don at "Her tanning bed" was the best captain ever. He helped us get our quota for scallops and a lot of people were not coming back with any. Great location. Loved eating at Roy's but you do need to drive there. The touches of coffee, wine bath salts, snacks...perfect!

Relaxing Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our anniversary getaway in March of 2018 and highly recommend it to anyone. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The house had everything we could imagine and more. We loved it so much we decided we wanted to book again. I went to book the house again for this upcoming March and was bummed to see the increase in rental prices.

Clean and great community.

  • 4 of 5

First time stay and very impressed with the cleanliness, cute decor and community ammentities. Would stay again. Although the 1 bedroom description is a bit misleading. More of a studio as there is no separation from the bedroom to the living area. All one room. But it worked for us!

Cozy simplicity

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend. It was very clean and comfortable. It has a very cute screened in back patio that has plenty of shade and has a view of the creek. Although there are other homes/cabins beside it, I never saw anyone when we relaxed on the patio. The place is well stocked and it seems like the owners thought of anything that you might have forgotten. I was there for business, but I will return to go fishing and scalloping!
