Welcome to the Lodge at Hidden Creek! Our incredible 2700 square foot woodsy Floridian home awaits you and yours to vacation in the Sunshine State with family and friends. Whether you are in Merritt Island for a wedding, graduation, family reunion, soccer tournament at Rotary Park, to bike, hike, visit the Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Village or Cocoa, to boat, fish, swim, dive, or play, you will not find a better situated location than Hidden Creek. Not only is the location amazing, the house is like an indoor/ outdoor playground, sprawled out on almost an acre and includes games for everyone in the family. Ping pong, puzzles, pool table, corn hole game, darts, board games, cards, lots to do after spending time at the beach or when you are tired of the same old theme parks! And nothing is better than hide and seek at Hidden Creek.
The House: With 3 bedrooms, 2 and ½ baths and a 2 car garage our home in Merritt Island is clean, bright and features an open floor plan with soaring vaulted ceilings, custom stained glass, tile floors, gobs of outdoor decking, gas grill, wandering paths and screened in porch. A smiling Mr. Sun greats you up the winding path, opposite one of the largest staghorn ferns you have ever seen. The flagstone porch continues into the foyer through the inviting front door. Upon entering you will notice a sparkling crystal chandelier above you, until your eye is drawn to the gorgeous blue-felt professional pool table immediately to your right in the fantastic living room. The kitchen, dining area and “fireplace” room (with flat-screen tv and sleeper sofa) flow seamlessly together with windows to enjoy the incredible scenery that is right outside your door. A bright sun room is perfect for reading your favorite book or butterfly and bird-watching. Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and all of the essentials for creating fabulous family meals when you are tired of eating out. In-season produce can be purchased at any one of Brevard County’s many farmer’s markets. A washroom with full size washer and dryer is right off of the kitchen with the house’s half bath opposite. The two car garage leads into the kitchen. The ping pong table is available to set up a rousing game in the garage. There are several bikes available to take advantage of the endless biking opportunities that can be enjoyed all over the island, and for the adventurous, to Cocoa Beach.
The Decks: Double sliding doors continue to the deck with gas grill, tables and chairs and loungers providing copious outdoor seating. A huge carambola or "star fruit" tree is dripping with fruit during the season. Set up the “corn hole” game to toss while grilling burgers and sipping long tall glasses of lemonade. Kids can have a tea party at the Fairy Table, set up around a beautiful cypress tree trunk.
The Bedrooms: The bedrooms at Hidden Creek are located in a separate area of the house in a wing off of the living room. This hallway can be shut off from the main living area by a convenient pocket door. The large master bedroom has a king size bed, two closets (one walk-in) and an en suite bathroom with double sinks. As a bonus for parents who want to get away, this room also has a large screened in porch with coffee maker, sink, refrigerator and microwave. The porch can be accessed through the back yard or sliders from the master. The second bedroom, the Peacock Room, also has a king size bed and a charming window seat, while the 3rd has two twin beds and a 3rd trundle bed that can be easily accessed to accommodate 3 guests. This sweet room also has a window seat. The second full bathroom also has double sinks. The Grounds: Luscious Florida vegetation surrounds Hidden Creek as if it sat by itself on its own island. Butterflies and hummingbirds frolic among natural a habitat. Changing seasons bring about blossoms from gardenia, giant bird of paradise, vinca, verbena, azaleas, crepe myrtle, magnolia and jasmine. A kumquat drapes over the grill and a banana plant greets visitors at the end of the driveway. Paths crisscross stone steps with pavers and pine needles. If you have your own boat or small rv, there is room to keep it here.
The Loft: As if there are not enough reasons to love Hidden Creek, the loft can arguably be the best part of all. Imagine your surprise when you climb the steps to find a huge lounge-style entertainment room…it’s a throwback to the ‘70’s with shag carpet and pit couches! Here you will find a TV with DVD player, shelves full of books and games, a daybed, computer desk and dart board for hours of entertainment and a great getaway for the kids big and small. Break out the card table for a game of poker or Texas Holdem. Or just climb the stairs for your own personal getaway. The open railing provides a direct view to the pool table below.
The house can comfortably sleep 7- 10 guests with the bedrooms, queen size sleep sofa, and daybed in the loft.
Not only families but companies as well can enjoy Hidden Creek as a corporate rental for when temporary housing is needed for company retreats, interns, special meetings and getaways. Also, if you are having a house being built or are in between moving, the fully furnished house could be a great transition. You might not want to leave!
