Wonderful Hideaway Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had for the month of March, 2018| The cabin was decorated in such a chaming, country style. Everything you need is there. The bedding is extra comfy and the kitchen is well supplied . The boat house has all your fishing needs as well as a nice deck to just enjoy the lake. There are plenty of hiking areas and other lakes nearby and a short distance to quaint places such as Tarpon Springs, Ybor City, Dunedin and of course, downtown Tampa. The owner, Carina, couldn't be nicer and very helpful. Don't forget to bbq on the gas grill and rock on the front porch! We hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. The weather was perfect! It is certainly an amazing experience to sit on the porch and enjoy the lake, or cook out on the grill on the side deck under the umbrella and see all that nature has to offer! It is a much more unique experience than just a "regular house" and yet with all the nice amenities! Relaxing, private and yet so close to everything you may wish to do in our beautiful Tampa Bay area! Thanks again for staying with us!!!

Charming log cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely decorated older log cabin with lots of country charm. Private and secluded yet many stores within a couple of miles. Handy to the coast or Tampa. Really nice golf courses within 2 to 5 miles. Lots of wild life besides the cows that reside on the property. Many different birds, raccoons, possum, and the turtles in the lake. None that caused any problems. Did not see any snakes or alligators (except on the golf course). Great place to get away from it all and relax!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

perfect location for people who just want to relax and get away from it all. No other homes in the area.

The cabin is decorated so uniquely, and cozy. If you like to fish, the boathouse and the dock are perfect

for catching bass,bluegill,and crappie. Largest bass I caught was 9 lbs. The huge old oak trees are so much like

Florida, with all the moss hanging down. The weather was fantastic-75-80. We enjoyed every minute!

I would highly recommend this truly relaxing getaway! The owner, Carina, was so gracious.
