Enjoyed our stay in the quaint cottage. In addition to Great Lake views and access, it had plenty of room, good location to both the Villages and Ocala. Hosts were friendly and helpful!

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

Our family absolutely loved our vacation! We didn't venture out much because we had all we needed right on the lake and at the cottage. If you are looking for relaxation and much needed family time this is the place to be! We hope to return in the not so distant future;)

Perfect house right on the beach of Lake Weir. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying for a week in this house visiting family and doing tourist things. We were able to spend an afternoon in Orlando and on another day several hours in St. Augustine. (Centrally located) It was nice to come back in the evenings, relax and have dinner on the patio overlooking the lake. And to spend the mornings on the beach or having breakfast in the sunroom. We all agree we'd like to stay again when we return to Florida.
