About the Owner

Loved the Rustic feel of the cottage & property with large trees and sunsets over the lake as I grew up with Ontario cottages in the summer starting at age 6

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. It is always great to host you and I appreciate you leaving the property in the state that you find it. I love those breathtaking sunsets over the water also and the reflective time at Loon Cottage. I know we both share our love of Highlands hammock park, too. My repeat guests are my favorites and you're welcome to continue coming every year!

Peaceful,romantic getaway

My boyfriend and I had the most wonderful time at Loon Cottage. The house was clean, cosy and had all the amenities (and more)you would need to make you feel at home - pots/pans/toaster oven/coffee machine/juicer etc. The living area was comfy with a huge couch, reclining chairs and a large selection of movies to watch after enjoying the sunset from the dock outside. We spent almost every evening out there, watching the wildlife and enjoying the breeze off the lake.
Neither of us are into fishing, but we met a couple of people who said the lake is 'the place to be' if you want a quiet, relaxing place to take a boat and catch some great fish. We took the kayaks out instead and it was just wonderful to float out at dusk, the water is so calm there and it was the perfect place for a first time kayaker!
The house is in a great location if you want to get out and about. It was close to Hammock Park (about 6miles), which has beautiful trails and some awesome wildlife (we saw alligators, birds and an amazing yellow spider!), the town is a couple of minutes drive and there are plenty of restaurants (see the guidebook at Loon Cottage-most of them are listed, with menus) and shops if you prefer to cook in. We also went on an airboat ride, which was a real experience. The guide was great, so knowledgable, and we saw tons of alligators, turtles and birds. Go at dusk for a real treat, the swamp is supposedly at its most beautiful then!
All in all I would highly recommend Loon Cottage. We had one of the best vacations ever there and left feeling peaceful and relaxed. The place even sparked the idea of us moving from Colorado to sunny Florida next year!

The Loon Cottage is the perfect place to stay in Sebring, Florida. Clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, close to restaurants and beautiful lakes for fishing/boating. It's also close to Lake Placid, home of the "murals". If you haven't seen it, don't miss it. This house is on Lake Josephine, a 3 section lake that's full of bass and crappie. Pretty neighborhood with a boat ramp on a dead end street made for morning walks without the worry of traffic. Highlands Hammock State Park is close by and worth the visit. Just magnificent!
Overall a great place to stay, we will return soon!
