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 Florida

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..

A wonderful getaway on a beautiful river

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very homey and you can sit on the docks to watch folks and manatee go up and down river or take out the canoe and enjoy a quiet time rowing up to springs yourself. I would return time and time again. Wonderful time of rest and real relaxation.

Third time back!!! Booking another weekend....You will not be disappointed...

  • 5 of 5

Well this was my 3rd time staying at this incredible cabin right on the main river....And the perfect location upstream made it perfect to just jump in a tube and float in the crystal clear waters.... Even though it is not really manatee season we did see quite a few along with otters and fish galore. The bugs were not so bad this time around - Deer flies can be quite a nuisance but wear deer fly spray and you will be fine.

The house itself was clean clean clean!!! Everything worked perfectly and the double dock was just a blessing to get in and out of the river...Used the canoe a few times which was in great shape as well. Quiet neighbors as well, so no major noise. Nights were perfect....I would suggest getting a 5000 lumen light like I did and it lights up the Weeki at night or a good spotlight would work. Everyone is so friendly kayaking down the river. I highly recommend this vacation home. The owner Dr Roberts called to make sure everything was good and was very accommodating. Beds were comfy and shower worked perfectly. See you soon!! I see a couple of days open in May still...I might be booking this - Great price too...Cant go wrong. Thank you again Dr. and Mrs. Roberts for a wonderful stay... :)

This was a delightful place to get away. We miss it already.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had all the comforts of home in a peaceful, inviting setting. We particulary enjoyed the quiet time by the river in the early mornings. It was also fun to explore the area, which has some beautiful drives and good Gulf seafood. We highly recommend a stay at this cabin on the Weeki Wachee.

Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very comfortable and had everything we needed for an extended stay. The first days we did see manatees going by. The river always had something - boaters, birds, fish, etc. we made good use of the canoe. A free use landline helped, too.

Owner's Response: A Great Review, The Weeki Wachee River is a busy and FAMILY River full of activity. The large docks are great to sit on and observe the people having FUN and enjoy watching manatees, fish, crabs, birds, squirrels, otters, butterflies and other creatures. The River is patrolled by the Sheriff Department to ensure safety for ALL. We look forward to your return. William

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.
