Old Homosassa is a quaint Florida Village on Florida's Nature Coast located 60 miles north of the Tampa Airport. The area is known for the spring fed Homosassa River, Halls River, and Mason Creek, which leads into Homosassa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The area's waterways are home to a large diversity of wildlife including manatees, river otters, porpoise, and many species of birds, fish and shell fish native to the west coast of Florida.

Old Homosassa still retains the charm of a river village setting with riverfront restaurants, art galleries, fresh seafood shops, and of course a few old time honky tonks for evening entertainment. The annual Seafood Festivals draws talented artists and thousands of visitors.

Activities in the area include excellent fishing, scalloping, swimming, biking, boating, kayaking, canoeing, bird watching and just enjoying the local rivers, Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and Withlacoochee State Forest all one half mile from Mason Creek Launch Ramp and the Creekside House available for rent. The Mason Creek launch ramp is three blocks from the Creekside House. Water access ,dock privileges, and moorage are available at our private dock across the street from the Creekside House.
