Acorn Cottage * Lush Yard * Quiet AC

Vacation home in Tarpon Springs with balcony
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 queen 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 121 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.

If you need a ride to or from the airport (or anywhere else), we have a driver we can refer you to.
