About Jamie Zito

Deb Zito has owned and operated Cactus Jack's Trail Rides LLC for the last 5 years in Ocala, Florida. When the stables at Rock Springs Run Reserve became available for a new horseback riding vendor, Deb and Jamie Zito decided to take on this beautiful new location. Along with the horseback riding, the Hammock House rental seemed like a great addition. We have always had customers ask 'Is there a romantic place to stay?' Now we can offer this amazing home to riders, and non-riders.....everyone will enjoy it!

Jamie Zito purchased this House in 2013

Why Jamie Zito chose Sorrento

This home is all made from pecky cypress. It was originally a rancher's home. It sits in a 14,000 acre park and is right on the Wekiva River.

What makes this House unique

It has a barn/stable for guests to bring their own horses, or they can go riding at the riding stable in the park. Hiking is encouraged and wildlife is seen daily.

                                                                8 professional colleagues of mine needed a quiet place to retreat. Though not too far from the restaurants of downtown Sanford, we felt like we were way out in the woods. It was a quiet, restful, rustic, beautiful space to meet. The spring air was cool in the woods, and the river was full of bass! If you are looking for an old Florida ranch style experience, this is the place.

                                                                For nature lovers

                                                                The house is spacious and the air conditioner works great. The outdoor scenery is serene and there are nice open areas for a get together . We had a wedding that went into the night and were able to hang market lights and it looked great . This is February so the bugs were not out of control yet. Just know that you are in the woods and the water into the house is god awful and stinks of rotten eggs ...so bring lots of room air fresheners . The indoor lighting is soft . Its is pitch black at night so bring some spot lighting for the outdoors for parking. And bug spray. All in all we had a beautiful time !!

                                                                Out of the , but in the way getaway.

                                                                Rosemarie M.Umatilla, FL; Winter Springs, FL; Deltona, FL; Winter Garden, FL

                                                                This was a weekend meet up with my group. HH afforded us the opportunity to engage in multiple activities without leaving the property. Although we didn't use the canoes I'm sure we would have if there hadn't been horses to ride. The group got split by having varying activities available. While I sat by the fireplace in the evening I could hear a vigorous game of pool being played in another room. I love rustic, woodsy places and this fit the bill. I slept well so my bed was comfortable. That said there could be a bit more maintenance performed. Also, the password for WIFI could be left somewhere in the house to be easily accessible, even though service can be spotty. Despite the beautiful, quiet and relaxing setting some people have to stay connected. Thankfully I'm not one of them. My weekend was terrific, thank you!

                                                                Absolutely had a marvelous long weekend in January 2018! Absolutely beautiful property and had to believe you were in Florida! Owners were wonderful to work with and extremely accommodating! Thank you so much from a traveling soccer mom!!

                                                                We all loved our time out in the "wilderness"

                                                                Great new years weekend at the river house. Kids ran wild outside. Cooked s'mores over the fire. Hiked to Indian mound. Road bikes and petted the horses.

                                                                The house was very roomy and clean. Kitchen well stocked. (except I couldn't find a can opener).

                                                                Minor issues, beeping fire detector and missing sheet for futon, were addressed immediately by Cactus Jack and his men.

                                                                Only suggestion I have would be a big table on the porch to feed the kids outside.

                                                                Can't wait to do it again!!
