A Gem on a beautiful part of the Weeki Wachee River

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was fantastic. A serene part of the Weeki Wachee River. Manatees floated by daily, which was a awesome sight to see! The new screened in porch is a great addition. We had our dogs with us and it was nice to be able to sit in the new porch and feel like you were still out in the open on the river. The house is fully equipped with anything you need. We cooked several times and had everything we needed. If you want a tropical, peaceful vacation we would highly recommend this beautiful home.

House was beautiful had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful had all the amenities plus!! It was especially cold this week and the TV family room is not heated with a vent but the space heater worked well and the rest of the house was toasty warm. Loved having my morning coffee on the river. Felt right at home. Will be back someday but not during January want to see how great it would be to swim and paddle in the river. House is close to all the other tourist areas went to Weeki Watchee saw mermaids, Homassasa Springs and Three sister springs, Crystal River all a comfortable drive up 19. Saw 3 Manatee swimming down last morning coffee before we left.

So relaxing, lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage/house tucked away in the Florida environs. Very comfortable, nicely decorated, everything you need. WiFi nice and strong. Central a/c worked well, all appliances new and clean. We loved the deck overlooking the river and all the wildlife. We have family in Spring Hill and will definitely try to stay here again the next time we come down.

Very clean, spacious property with beautiful views! We stayed outside on the beautiful deck.

The Bear House had everything we needed for the perfect vacation. The only time we left this beautiful place was to take our granddaughter to see the mermaids. We enjoyed kayaking, watching the fish and manatees, swimming, and meeting the friendly people on the river. This trip was just perfect in every way. Thank you, Mr. Nock for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Car: recommended

We are on the Weeki Watchee river, a kayaking destination. The location is semi private and secluded, right on the river in the "Tunnel Section", complete coverage of the river by the trees. We are about 4 miles from the State Park and 1 mile from Rogers Park.
