Cypress Point Cottage


Property Details

Updated: Apr 11, 2016
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Florida Vacation Rental

Welcome to Cypress Point Cottage located on one of the small canals

leading to the Dead River. This 1 bedroom 1 bath cottage newly

remodeled is nestled amongst the cypress trees. Step out of the door

to enjoy the serenity of nature, where you have osprey, eagles and

barred owls as your neighbors. This quiet cottage offers both

privacy and convenience to Mt. Dora(just 5 miles south)known as the

City of Festivals.

When in season, walk out and pick your own fresh citrus fruit or

avocadoes. We have grapefruit, tangerines, juicing oranges, blood

oranges and Meyer lemons. Eat as much as you want or take a few home.

A fig tree is also available if you can beat the squirrels and birds

to taste this delicacy.

Boat house is available, depending on water level. Or we offer a

place to park your boat or camper. There is a public boat dock

within 2 miles. The Dead River leads to and connects the Harris

Chain of Lakes. Lake Harris and the surrounding lakes are well known

for incredible fishing. Better yet just bring your pole and fish

from your cottage!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my fourth year staying in the cottage! I come down from cold Cleveland and spend every day cycling. I rode over 1100 miles during my two and a half month stay. Not bad for a 70 something guy! I love it here. The cottage has everything I need to make each day here a great one. A definite five star rating!

This was my second stay in this wonderful cottage.

Cozy and quiet and equipped with all you may need for one night or two months. I've stayed six and eight weeks.

The cottage is convenient for recreation, entertainment and good food. The owner is available and attentive to

your needs. A perfect unit for a single person or couple.

*Beautiful Gem in Tavares*

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing experience while in Taraves at this beautiful cottage. We would recommend this cottage to anyone. The Hosts were so sweet and thoughtful. Our time there was to short and can't wait to go back. If anyone is looking for a place to unwind, relax and feel completely at home (without being home) this is the place. The cottage is very secluded with beautiful scenery. It is also o

n the river (literally). We have already told all of our friends about it. I am sure they will be making a trip down there sooner than later. We can not say enough about this place and the people there. Thank You.... Thank You...Thank You...for such an amazing time.. which makes for amazing memories. See you on our next trip :-)

My stay at Cypress Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very pleasant and the discovery of the wild life and the fauna was a pleasant surprise.The cul de sac is very quiet and private.

Of course the grapefruit tree in the garden (and juices every morning) allowed us both to shed a few pounds.

The central location of Tavares makes it very easy to travel around and visit Orlando and Tampa.

Perfect retreat for couples.

We were really pleased with our stay at this rental cottage. The house was immacutely clean, was complete with all of the things you would want or need to enjoy the cottage. The home owners were very gracious and left us a note with a bottle of wine to welcome us to the area. We were able to communicate before and after our visit with the home owners which was very helpful in terms of making arrangements for our stay and future rentals. We will return to the cottage again next year.

Home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as described, the pictures are accurate. We arrived to welcome gifts for us and for Muffin, how nice! It was very clean, I did not hesitate to use the kitchen or living areas. The bed was very comfortable, no aches or pains the next morning (the things we appreciate as we get older!). There were 2 outdoor areas to take advantage of, and both were nice and private, I had a book reading area, and Muffin had a place to explore. The surroundings are peaceful, but it took less than 5 minutes to get to the grocery, shopping, and good places to eat. It is located in a residential area with no traffic, so if you are a walker or runner, make sure you bring your shoes. Kim was so nice and made sure we felt right at home from the time we got there, and when we wanted to stay an extra day, she made that happen and gave us a very good deal. I would not hesitate to stay again, Thank you!
