We had the best time - this location has everything!
We had the best time - this location has everything!
My family and I stayed here for the weekend - we have a 13 year old and twin 4 year olds and everyone had a blast! This house has everything...just bring whatever groceries you need/want and you'll be set. It is very kid friendly, even has toys for them to play with! As if the house wasn't enough, you are right there at one of the most beautiful state parks Florida has to offer, Torreya State Park. There is a play and picnic area, beautiful nature trails and the view from the overlook is amazing! The combination definitely made for an unforgettable weekend for my whole family! We plan on repeat visits!
