Located down the country road from this property is our sister cottage, Cove Cottage, an adorable 1000 square foot one bedroom/one bath (VRBO listing #221342). Cove Cottage is not lake side, but lake access is less than two hundred yards away and boats will be made available.

Also nearby to the east side of Lotus is a beautiful 1920s cypress cottage with lake view, spacious porch, deck, knotty pine interior walls and ceilings, fireplace and charm galore.

All three properties are ideal for multi-family vacations, church groups, retreats, etc.

We've enjoyed this area so much that our families have been vacationing in the peaceful beauty of Floral City since 1968. So much so, that in the last five years we've acquired these additional properties. We hope you'll enjoy any or all of them as much as our families do.

Busch Gardens is 75 minutes to the southeast. Disney World is 80 minutes to the east. This property is located 75 minutes north of Tampa Airport.

                        Our stay at Lotus Point was absolutely wonderful. The view is spectacular as you drive into the property and it continues from every side and front window of the house! The home was clean and the kitchen and bathrooms were well-stocked. We fished using the dock and boat provided. The weather was beautiful...we sunbathed, roasted marshmallows around a campfire, ate meals on the porch, and relaxed reading a good book from every corner of the property! Touring Floral City and eating at the Cafe and Art Museum were very special. Thank you for a wonderful time!

                        This place was all you said it would be and so much more! The house itself was so comfortable and I loved the screened porch. The lake with all of its wildlife was a welcome getaway from the rush of everyday life. Falling asleep to the symphony of the frogs along with the occasional owl soloist was so soothing...and that first cup of tea in the morning on the porch listening to the world wake up was lovely. I also fell in love with Floral City and would love to come back and spend some more time "downtown". The only negative of my trip was being chased away a night early because of Tropical Storm Andrea heading in this direction. :) I have already recommended your place to several friends and I will definitely be back!

                        Dear Dudleys, We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay here at Lotus Point Lake House. We will definitely be back! Your home is beautiful and perfect for a relaxing vacation on the lake. We're looking for the exact spot of heaven. Can we buy this place? LOL. We hope our extended family will join us next time we come to Florida. Loved spending time on the enclosed porch listening to the sounds of wildlife and watching the cranes swoop over the lake and walk along the shore. Thank you for providing the bikes and rowboat. We biked the Withlacoochee Trail and fished from the boat (and caught fish!) Enjoyed an afternoon at Fort Island Gulf Beach, an afternoon at Rainbow Springs, andn an afternoon at Weekie Wachi. Breakfast at Bagels and more outside of Floral City on the way to Inverness is not to be missed. For visitors reading this entry who are visiting the area for the first time, be sure to see Cooter Pond Park in Inverness for turtles and gators. Also, Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park for the wonderful variety of animals and especially the beautiful manatees. Thank you, Dudleys, for sharing your home with us. Paul & Stacey ~ MD P.S.

                        Dear Dudley Family, Lovely home, perfect location, peaceful and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay here. We really appreciated all the little extras supplied, including paper plates, cooler and picnic chairs for our many picnics. We spent the evening hours on the fully enclosed (no bugs) deck in the rocking chairs overlooking the lake, candles and lights glowing to match the glorious sunsets. We were very impressed with our visit to Homosassa Springs State Park only 40 minutes away, took lots of photos of the hippos, alligators, flamingoes and many other nature birds. Another day went to Rainbow Springs and swam in the refreshing fresh water spring waters. Then finally drove 50 mins to Fort Island Gulf Beach golden sand and sea and plenty of sunshine. Splendid holiday! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We shall treasure the memory and enjoy all our photographs on our return to the U.K. Jack, Joy, Daniel, Andrea & Levi

Trevor Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of property with us. It was all we hoped it would be. Two days just wasn't enough. Hope to come back and stay for a week next time! Teresa This was a beautiful vacation, and I couldn't have asked for a better place. The lake and all of its surroundings was gorgeous and I enjoyed seeing all the wildlife. Thanks a lot. Katie

                        Dear Duddly, I realy loveed staing here. It is a realy nice house. I hope I can sa here next year. Love Evelyn (child guest) Hey Dudly, I had a good time at the house. It was a nice place and I want to come back sometime. I'd really like a house like this one. This was one of my most funnest vacations, yet, even the furniture was comfortable. Thank you for letting us stay and I really had a great vacation. Thank you. Sincerly, Norman S. (10) Dear Lotus Point, What a great place you have! Very comfortable and homey accomodations. The kids loved being able to take the rowboat out and go fishing. They loved playing badminton (actually, we all did). My husband and I love the outdoors and really enjoyed walking around the grounds and looking at all the beautiful flowers and trees. We sure are glad that we were able to stay here on our vacation and we weren't stuck in a hotel room somewhere. Six of us stuck in a hotel room would not have been any fun at all! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!! Richard, Sharon, Ariel, Aaron, Norman & Evelyn

                        Dear Lotus, This really is a jewel of a place, off the beaten path, but so much to offer, starting with the view of the lake. The charming interior was comfortable also. If that wasn't enough, just around the corner is the cute city of "Floral City." Good fishing! Good food! Nice people! No traffic! That's why we look forward to returning next year! Elaine & Paul
