Floral City holds a delightful Strawberry Festival in March.

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

Beautiful Rainbow Springs - a must see and feel - can be reached in 40 minutes. Swimming in any of the many refreshing, invigorating Florida Springs is like non other.

VRBO listing #266094: Also nearby to the east side of Lotus is our brother cottage, a beautiful 1920s cypress cottage with lake view, spacious porch, deck, knotty pine interior walls and ceilings, fireplace and charm galore. It is a 1000 square foot two bedroom/one bath (shower) with full amenities. Outside you can enjoy the two-picnic table pavilion, fire pit, deck, bikes and boats.

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

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We're a family of five. We purchased Lotus for family getaways but are now able to share our slice of heaven with people from all over the world.

Why the Owner Chose Floral City, FL, USA:
Our families have been vacationing in this beautiful, rustic, secluded neighborhood since 1968. We've acquired several properties since then.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Lotus is the ideal RELAXATION STATION. Coffee on the rockers overlooking the lake first thing in the morning is one of our favorite places in the entire world. You won't want to leave the three rocking chairs. We have a row boat waiting at all times. There is a bike trail .02 miles from lotus. bikes can be rented .09 miles away. There are many options to set up for a croquet championship or badminton tournament. While we do have corn toss boards, if you have your own bags, bring them along. Guests have caught nice fish on our lake.
