About Terry & Tim

Eustis residents! Local business owners! Just regular folks like yourselves! We love to TRAVEL and enjoy staying in homes during our trips so we know what to provide to our guests since we're regularly on the other side of the coin! We also love to boat, ride motorcycles and camp! We are helpful but not intrusive with our guests......

Terry & Tim purchased this house in 2006

Why Terry & Tim chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

Great location to downtown Eustis and all it has to offer with the festivals, restaurants, Lake Eustis boardwalk. While our home is in city, we also are fortunate to be on a private gated compound with lake behind our cottages! It is like having the best of two worlds!!


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Very neat home and Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Home was clean and well maintained. Owners are very friendly which is a good thing since they live next door to this property. Home does however sit very close to very busy road. We forgot our box fan and had to buy one ASAP after first restless night with road noise. Would recommend this property visiting Eustis area.

Spectacular! Extremely clean. Felt at home.

  • 5 of 5

We have so many options these days as to how to spend our time away. We were extremely fortunate to have chosen Ross Cottages. We felt totally relaxed and at home the moment we arrived. Our cottage was immaculate and everything that we needed was there. All we needed to bring were clothes, food and drink. Whatever we forgot or needed the grocery store was 5 minutes away. The view of the lake out back and the abundance of wildlife were awesome. They even had binoculars ready to capture the flight of the eagles or the osprey feeding. The variety of wildlife is very impressive. We were especially fortunate to be there for the monthly "first Friday" of the month festival in the center of Eustis, which is 2 blocks away with very quaint stores, street merchants, music, friendly people and several places for a nice cold beverage that you can carry as you walk.

The owners, Tim and Terri Ross, exceeded our expectations. We look forward to seeing them again soon. Naturally it will be the first Friday of the month.

Best vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off let me start by saying that both Tim and Terry Ross were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The information provided by both the internet instructions as well as a welcome packet located in the home answered any questions we may have had, as well as the Ross's being easily reached if we had additonal question. The location was perfect, within walking distance of downtown area, one block over from a beautiful view of the lake. The accommodations was more of a home setting versus a cooped up hotel. It was vary spacious with all the luxuries of home that you won't find at most hotels, especially for the price. I'd definitely recommend staying here and I myself plan on doing so on my next vacation. By the way, Alexander Springs is definitely a beautiful place to take the family swimming and having a picnic. I rated our stay with 5 stars, wish there was more stars to give because it's definitely worth more the 5. I like to personally thank Tim and Terry Ross for making our stay an experience both my children and I thoroughly enjoyed.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Terry and Tim are the ultimate hosts. Always available to your questions but never intrusive.

The house was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. They think of everything!

We enjoyed our walks around the city and especially the boardwalk.

This is a perfect place for couples and families.

They also have this adorable mini dachshund, Peanut, that we had the pleasure of her company for two days.

We will most certainly return.

Awesome! Clean, comfortable, and lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family reunion and had several people come from different states. Terry and Tim were fantastic! We could not ask for better hospitality! The house was very clean and comfortable. It is easily accessible to shopping, restaurants, and other activities plus only an hour from Orlando. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying with Terry and Tim. They are wonderful hosts that care about their properties and worked hard to ensure our stay was perfect. The house is well stocked with all the necessities; the deck is a great place to sit and enjoy the morning sun; and their suggestions for good local restaurants was spot on. Terry and Tim, thank you for another great vacation.
