Cozy Acorn Cottage in Downtown Tarpon Springs

Apartment with balcony, near Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks
Cozy and private Acorn Cottage is in historic downtown Tarpon Springs, walking distance to the world famous sponge docks, located just blocks away from breweries, restaurants, the Pinellas Trail. And the beach is only 3 mi away! The cottage offers a full size bed, Wi-Fi, Roku TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and shared use of the back yard of our 120-year-old Victorian home.

The space was fully remodeled in 2021!

The cottage is private, and the yard was designed to feel like a tropical paradise. Acorn Cottage has a private bistro set, great for having a cup of tea or coffee and enjoying the outdoors.

Acorn Cottage offers Florida beach town life at its finest. You can rent bikes nearby at Neptune's or Tarpon Tom's. You can rent kayaks or water bikes at Fred Howard. There are dolphin tours, museums, restaurants and so much more within walking distance. Or just hang out in the back yard with a beverage and unwind.

Tarpon Springs was founded in 1876 and thrived for decades on the industry of sponge diving. Now, the town has so much more to offer than sponge diving, but the rich history remains. Acorn Cottage is located downtown in a residential historical neighborhood just a few blocks from Tarpon Ave (our "Main Street"). The main home is 120 years old, and the surrounding homes are historic as well.

We chose Tarpon Springs for its walkability. If you need rides to or from the airport or anywhere else, we have a driver we would be happy to refer you to. The Jolly Trolley is a great public transportation option. There's also a 46-mi bike trail one block away, with rental bikes close by as well. The beaches are a short bike or drive away.

Nice cottage
It was just the right size for me. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The shower was great and the bed was comfortable. I liked the refrigerator. I would stay there again.

Short stay
We only needed a place to stay for a few nights. It was very well located to stores and anything you needed. Rather small place but worked for the few days we were there.

Brewery & Greek food paradise
We stayed at the cottage for my boyfriends birthday weekend. It was the perfect location for us to explore the local brewery’s and Greek restaurants! It was a little smaller than I had imagined but it had everything we needed. We stayed 3 nights and still didn’t finish seeing everything! We are for sure coming back because we found some great places and met some awesome people.

5/5 Excellent

Great place

5/5 Excellent

Overall was excellent, was gone most days there, went down to the Sponge Docks two of the dais and went to Hommassa to visit my sister the third day. The landscaped yard was awesome!
