Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely georgeous. They had it decorated beautifully. The yard was fenced in so our dog Molly had the run of her life. The setting was very peaceful, except for the deer flies of course. We enjoyed our stay very much. Our kids came and used the canoe and the pedal boat and had a great time also. We will definitely stay again. Thank you Dennis and Debra for an enjoyable stay.

Words can Never be Better than the real thing

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, this is about our 4th time here and I knew it just couldn't get any better, but this time every morning at 7:30am our Dolphin came swimming up the canal stirring up the morning breakfast for him and his 2 sidekicks, 2 huge Blue Herons !! We saw otters, turtles, snapping turtles and fish. It is just a piece of heavenly nature we were allowed to see. The frogs frogged all night and the momma owl brought her baby by. She couldn't hoot yet but squeaked at us and turned her little fuzzy head round and round. Dennis and Debra were absolutely fantastic. If you want a girlfriend for the day just mention antiques !!! Off you go...oh but first have some fresh squeezed orange juice right from your own tree, Dennis will pull all you can drink and my gosh how pleasantly sweet it is. Can't wait for the next trip down. When you go you will find everything I said to be the truth. IF it is the time of the year for the Dolphin. No 2 nicer people on this earth....We love you and Roxie. They love dogs too and there is a huge loop of road for a nice long walk in the mornings.

Wonderful Vacation Cottage for 2

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband spent 8 nights at this cottage. The cottage was perfect for 2 people who want to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. You can sit out back and just watch the turtles and fish in the canal for extra enjoyment. There is plenty of State Parks to explore and enjoy while you are there.

Our hosts Debra and Dennis were a pleasure to meet and were helpful regarding anything we wanted to know. We will definitely be back next year.

Four days to remember

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in December 2014. Even in December we ate dinner on the patio three nights out of the four. The cottage is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean; we were continually noticing yet another treasure. The location is perfect. We enjoyed visits to the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and to the Crystal River Archaeological State Park. Despite the quiet location in the woods a Publix supermarket is conveniently nearby. For the rest, I endorse the positive comments of previous reviewers. We are determined to come again to stay in this wonderful place, it truly is one of a kind; we hope especially to come when the days are longer to enjoy the evenings by the river. Finally I must mention Dennis’ warm welcome. In short, a very, very special place.

Beautiful, peaceful, the place to clear your mind.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time here. To my husband and I there will be no other place to come to for vacation to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the Real Florida. We were on a canal and there is nothing more calming than to go out in the morning with your coffee and look up at the stars and hear the owls. I set my alarm each morning in order to get up before daylight. The couple that own the cottage are everything you would hope for. They know EVERYTHING about the area. The property was so clean. They allow us to bring our 3 little girls (dogs), no extra fees. We always pick up after our girls. That's the least we can do for these wonderful people. We all ate out at Fat Daddy's for the all you can eat fish, uuummm, went to Granny's for breakfast, oh my gosh. These are some of the things you would never know about on your own. We shopped at thrift stores. If you want the perfect getaway please give this property a shot. You will never be sorry.
