Perfectly appointed, lovely home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished spending four nights at this lovely home and wanted for nothing! Rose met us upon our arrival and gave us a quick tour of the home and showed us where the dock, kayaks, canoes, etc. were just a few steps around the corner. We spent a wonderful four nights. During the days, we were out on our boat on the Homosassa River; but always made it back in time to sit on the dock and watch the beautiful sunsets and enjoy dinner around the fire pit. The home is perfectly appointed, and you need bring nothing with you for the kitchen, as it has everything you could need. Thank you again, Rose!

Beautiful Home in Quiet, Tranquil, Peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

Rose was very gracious, meeting us when we arrived to give us a tour and take us to the dock for the sunset. That was just a glimpse of the beautiful weekend we had at the Creek Side House. Beautiful accommodations, spacious and all we could have hoped for. Thanks again for letting us stay at your beautiful home!! We will surely be back!

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This was just like visiting family. Captain Ron and Rose are great and make you feel welcome when arriving. The house was well stocked with pots, pans, and dishes to do all your scallop cooking and eating. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Thank you Captain Ron and Rose for a great time.

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at the Creek Side House for a week this summer. This is a wonderful home. I call it a home because my family enjoyed the experience of being at home during our stay. Captain Ron and Rose are great hosts and go out of their way to ensure everything is as described. They checked on us during our stay to make sure all of our needs were met and that we were having a great time. Captain Ron showed us the way down Mason Creek the first time we went out scalloping (I highly recommend this), also he gave us some GPS spots to ensure we collected our limit. We did each of the days we went out. The Creek Side House is a great place to stay, it is close to other areas of Homosassa but far enough away from the hustle and bustle so you do not experience the crowding. This was our first time here and we are currently planning on another stay next summer. The house and property are exactly as described and fully equipped. We had planned on going out to eat several times at local restaurants but we did not do so due to full days on the water and the food that we brought with us. We stayed in and enjoyed the property.
