About William Roberts

My wife Nancy and I, William, live in Polk City, Florida. Nancy is from New Jersey and I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. We met at the First Baptist Church in West Hollywood, Florida.

I served four years in the Air Force. Nancy and I attended the Bible Baptist Seminary now known as Arlington Baptist College in Arlington, Texas. Here we studied for the ministry and I graduated in 1962.

We organized a church and Christian School in south Florida where we served for 14 years. From there we moved to Ocala, Florida and organized Abundant Funds, a fund raising company for private Christian Schools serving schools in 24 states. In 2008 Abundant Funds merged with another Christian Company and I went into 'semi' retirement. I still work with Christian Schools part time with a company founded by my youngest son.

William Roberts purchased this cabin in 2005

Why William Roberts chose Weeki Wachee Gardens

Nancy and I wanted a place close by to get away from it all and a place where our four sons and their families could enjoy and relax with their families (sixteen grandchildren and two great). The river cabin is also a place we can invite friends on special occasions. We had a choice between the Gulf and the River. Nancy chose the river and it has proven to be an excellent choice.

Our cabin on the river offers scenery and relaxation. Unfortunately we are only using the cabin about 25% of the time. Our bills continue 100% of the time. We decided to place the cabin on the rental program and make it available to others.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a rustic setting on the river. This is a total change of scenery and being on the water is super relaxing. Across the river from the cabin is the Weeki Wachee Preserve where we observe all types of wildlife including a variety of birds. The river is full of many varieties of fish and manatees..

Fantastic wild life and a cozy and clean cabin.

  • 4 of 5

A nice and clean cabin located at the crystal clear Weeki Wachee river. The owner, William, even called us on the first day, to make sure everything was ok. We enjoyed the river from the docks and from the canoe. A lovely place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the Great Review. Our desire is to make our guest welcomed and relax and enjoy their time with their family at the River Cabin. The docks and the canoe(provided with the rental of the Cabin ) are great to see the River Wildlife. The Cabin is located directly across from the Weeki Wachee Preserve where one can view the wildlife and manatees which come daily to our docks.Looking forward to your return.William & Nancy Roberts.

Wonderful stay, will keep you coming back.

  • 5 of 5

This has been my 3rd time staying at this cabin in past 5 years with my family. It has been a wonderful vacation each time! The cabin is well kept, clean and cozy. The spring river is refreshing and we got to see a few manatees as well. My kids love it so much that they did not want go back home and cried half way home. Mr. Roberts thank you for a great stay and for sharing your vacation home with us!

Mermaids and Manatees!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had such a great time in the cabin! The outside space is amazing right on the river with so much wildlife to see. We used the canoe each day to explore the river and saw 6 manatees just down the river at hospital hole. Just Perfect!

Our cabin is located directly on the crystal clear Weeki Wachee River at one of the widest parts of the river. It is across from the Weeki Wachee preserve where you will experience the wildlife and beauty of Florida’s Nature Coast. It’s Florida at its finest with our two new, gorgeous inviting docks (24x24 / 8x24) to view our animal neighbors: manatees, river otters, herons, ibis, and eagles frequent the river both at our docks and across the river on the Weeki Wachee Preserve. See the fish clear to the bottom and swim with the gentle manatees that make daily treks by our home. Only 20 minutes by boat to the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak or paddle board, or just rent them nearby. You may also want to visit the Weeki Wachee Springs State Waterpark with the world-famous LIVE MERMAID SHOW and Weeki Wachee Canoe rentals (15 minutes), the white sand beach at Pine Island on the Gulf (20 minutes), Rogers Park, 3 acre sandy beach on the Weeki Wachee has roped off swimming area, volley ball court, playground, boat ramp,and kayak ramp. (5 minutes). At the end of the day you can cook your own catch on the cabin gas grill and lounge on the two docks or dine at one of many great local restaurants. Within 20 minutes you can choose from two state parks equipped with pavilions, picnic benches, grills and fishing spots. Fishing boats for deep fishing in the Gulf are also available. Just an hour north of Tampa and St. Petersburg and minutes from Hernando Beach, restaurants, and shopping. Only two hours to Orlando theme parks (Sea World, Disney World, MGM & Universal Studios ). 30 minutes north to Homosassa Wildlife State Park or 20 minutes south to the BIRD SANCTUARY in Aripeka, Florida.
