Awesome true Florida rustic experience
Owners were very respectful and there to make sure we had a great experience. Cottage is cute as a button with that true Florida rustic experience. Had a great time on the lake and even better coming back to the cute cottage. Great overall experience.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Weekend Getaway
Our son requested a weekend on the lake fishing and this property provided that and more. There was no WiFi which was perfect because the two children (ages 12 and 9) played games watched DVD’s and fished. We really enjoyed the family time. Our hosts were very helpful. They provided the fishing poles and supplies for s’mores. It was a very special weekend

5/5 Excellent

Lovely escape!
This place has it all. Well-appointed, gorgeous touches. Plenty of space to relax in seclusion. Owners easy to communicate with and offer some great amenities. The property itself is fabulous---nice water views and a huge awesome yard to run around in. Fire pit was an added bonus. We can't wait to visit again!
