Awesome and comfortable older home with charm and
My 4 sisters and our husbands (5 couples) stayed her for a family wedding in the area. We all loved it. Very spacious and comfortable. We had just lost our mother last month, so being together in one house was very important to all of us- it reminded us of our childhood! The house itself was absolutely perfect and we felt pampered by the owners. The kitchen was well stocked with anything a large group would need. The beds were comfortable and everything was so clean. The grounds were gorgeous and as well as the house, a lot of cozy little spaces to just sit and talk and relax. We would love to stay at this location again. It was perfect.
Thank you, Hollie. Again, my condolences to you and your sisters. So glad Ardendales could provide you a welcoming and peaceful respite for your wedding visit to Brooksville. Please come again!
Great for large group
Great place for large group. Plenty of space.
Place was perfect for all of our out of town guest to spend time together for our sons wedding.
This house has tons of charm and is very well maintained. The owners were great and provided all the extras to make our stay perfect. I would definitely recommend this property to all.
Thank you, Laurie, for your lovely comments. So glad Ardendales was a good place for your wedding stay in Brooksville. Come again!
Classic comfort in downtown Brooksville, Florida.
Lovely restored historic house in downtown Brooksville. Perfect house for guests attending a wedding or other event at Saxon Manor. Spacious dining room and serving area. Huge living room for everyone to gather in addition to other living areas. Love the considerate touch of the welcome basket with card and note on the blackboard.
Thank you! We appreciate your warm and generous comments. Welcome back anytime!
My family, and my siblings and their families (including a 3-year-old), traveled to the area for a family reunion right after Christmas and the eleven of us were very comfortable in this house. It had plenty of space, a well stocked kitchen, and all the other amenities we needed. The three older kids stayed in the Garden Suite and enjoyed having a space to themselves. Several of us took advantage of the walking trail nearby. The backyard, deck and screened in room provided even more space to play and relax. The homeowner made us feel very welcome. She answered all of our questions in a timely fashion before we traveled and she was available by phone/text if we had questions during our stay. I would recommend this house to others if they had to be in the Brooksville area.
Thank you for your thoughtful and great review. Please come again!
A great find!
A nice property that can sleep a lot of people. Not far from World Wind golf course and only 40 minutes from Tampa. The Garden suite is a separate apartment for a lot of privacy for multiple families.
Thank you, John, for your review. If you come back to World Woods Golf Course we would enjoy hosting you again.
Trips to Weeki Wachee, Pine Island Beach, the many biking paths, nature preserves and woodlands are just a few of the beautiful and serene options in the local area. Golfers will love staying here and enjoying the golfing at World Woods Golf - just 10 miles away. For a little longer drive, you can take a day trip to famous Ybor Square in Tampa and have a meal at the famous Columbia restaurant, visit the Clearwater Marina that houses the dolphins Winter and Hope, relax on Clearwater beach, visit the downtown St Petersburg area of charming cafes, and shops and bayfront parks. Heading east, it is just a day trip to Orlando and the many theme parks there, including the Disney theme parks and SeaWorld. Cycling enthusiasts will enjoy the many terrific biking trails the area has to offer, including the lengthy Withalacoochee bike trail. Birders can enjoy many small and larger parks and nature preserves with lakes or beach front to spot the wide variety of birds in this area. We have our own great birding spot in the 1/2 acre of woods behind the house with a screened room for viewing them or just relaxing with a morning coffee or evening drink.
