Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: 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. Dr.William Roberts
Why the Owner Chose Weeki Wachee, FL, USA:
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. Dr. William Roberts
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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..
