This was exactly the place for a weekend get away. There is no detail missing from this charming cottage. My sons and I fished, canoed and laid in the hammock. My dogs loved the property but found a gap in the fence and got away so be careful if you bring your pets. The rainbow river tubing was a great experience. Loved it!

This place reminded me of my grandparent's cabin when I was a kid. LOVED IT!!!! Everything you could need and more. Clean, comfy beds, view that was amazing!!! This is located close to Crystal River in a town called Dunnellon. The people we met at the local bar and grill on the Rainbow River, were so nice and welcoming!!! Great little town. I honestly can not say enough good things about this place. We are planning our next trip soon! I will make sure we have a boat. If we would have had our own boat our vacation would have been over the top!!! Still had plenty to do, and my son was able to fish right off the dock, well I watch from the hammock on the lawn with great shade trees. Just a great little place to see the true Florida!!!!

My husband and I were looking for a getaway close to Tampa. We found the perfect peaceful place and you would think you are much farther away than 90minutes from home. The tranquility was just what we needed. We fished, grilled out and spent alot of time outdoors and in the screen house. This wass everything we expected and more.

The cottage comes exactly as advertised, the pictures are absolutely accurate. My wife and I spent January 2012 at the cottage and we woke up with a smile every day. We walked almost every day, we saw wonderful sunsets and we spent many happy hours on the dock watching the alligators. The canoe is a little small and not designed for the uninitiated but I enjoyed it. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you will need. Crystal river is worth visiting and we liked Vintage on 5th and the Blue Alligator in Dunnellon is a hoot. You have to try the devilsfood donuts at the Dunnellon donut shop on Pennsylvania st. This is not your typical Florida vacation so be advised. We are from Wisconsin and it is truly a "northwoods fishing cottage" with designer touches. The decks make the place work.

My wife and 4 small boys had an awesome time. Everything that we needed was there for us at our disposal. Fishing is great (caught a 6lb largemouth)! The area springs and thrift shops were our favorite places to go to outside of the home. We honestly felt relaxed after being here for a week...no vacation from a vacation needed after coming here!

Glad We Found the Hidden Cottage

My family and I stayed at the cottage for a week in August and absolutely loved our time there. The moment we pulled in the driveway we knew it was exactly what we hoped for. The beautiful back yard is fenced on both sides providing privacy and a safe place for our kids to run around and play tag. The cottage is picture perfect and well cared for. The dock is large enough to tie up your boat and still have room to fish off it. The fire pits (there are two) are great spots to spend your evenings, smores are always a big hit with the kids. We spent the week exploring the rainbow river, we took our boat out on the lake every morning and evening for some fishing, took the canoe for a spin around the lake, drove up to Homosassa and went scalloping. It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend. If you are looking for a place to rent in the area, I would highly recommend the Hidden Cottage.

My husband and I took a mini vacation to this property and loved every minute. It was so peaceful. It felt like we were completely away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and yet restaurants and shopping was close by. It was a wonderful place for some R and R. Hope to do it again and stay a bit longer. Top notch place - don't change a thing!
