Overview

Floral City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy your morning coffee on our 300 square foot deck with a spectacular view of Lake Consuela. Watch hawks, owls, and cranes fishing along the lake. Cast a line from the private dock, the shore or from one of the the rowboats or canoe provided. Take an evening boat ride on the placid water of this private lake that is part of the Tsala Apopka chain. This place has it all! Whether you are looking for a get away with family and friends, dropping the kids at camp or planning a private weekend, you will enjoy all that our cottage has to offer. Pack a bag, stop by the grocery and enjoy your own memorable stay where nearly everything else is included.

Conveniently located just 4 miles from Good Counsel Camp.

This unique 1000 square foot 1940’s cottage has knotty pine tongue-in-groove paneling through out and has been family owned for more that 40 years. Each bedroom has a queen bed with old fashioned quilt. The spacious, fully equipped kitchen is filled with country charm. The living room has a brick wood burning fireplace to enjoy on those cooler evenings.( firewood included). During the day, you'll enjoy a leisurely bike ride (bikes provided) on the oak lined lanes of Floral City or the Rails to Trails, (more than 40 miles long for the serious cyclist) which is less than ½ mile away, or browse some of the many antique and art stores throughout Citrus County. In the evening enjoy an open fire grilled dinner under the lighted pavilion or enjoy a cocktail while finding the stars that you've never seen before from the city.

Surrounded by towering cypress trees and moss-covered oaks, this beautiful little town is reminiscent of the days of 'Old Florida'. An abundance of springs, lakes, rivers and parks has rightly billed this destination as 'Mother Nature's Theme Park'. Within 20 miles of Chazhowitzka, Homassasa and Crystal Rivers where you can experience beautiful Florida Springs and a manatee adventure like nowhere else. Explore limerock caves just 15 minutes away. On Saturday nights attend the stock car races at 'The Citrus County Speedway'. (They have school bus and boat trailer races several times a year, a must see!) Golf everywhere, airboat rides 5 miles away, horse back riding, blueberry picking , strawberry festival in the spring. There is always plenty to do.

Located a stone's throw down the country road from this property is our sister cottage, Cove Cottage, a cozy newly renovated one bedroom/one bath (VRBO listing #221342).

And around the bend just a little further, within walking distance, is our two bedroom/two bath lake house 'Lotus Point' located on four acres of rustic Florida land (VRBO listing #194799).

All three properties are ideal for multi-family vacations, church groups, retreats, reunions, etc.

Busch Gardens is 75 minutes to the southeast. Disney World is 80 minutes to the east. This property is located 60 minutes north of Tampa Airport.

Our property is pet friendly - well-behaved dogs, 35 pounds or less, please. Small pet deposit required.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your cottage. From the moment we stepped in the living room we felt the good atmosphere. We sure enjoyed the BBQ, the lovely and powerful shower (yes). We used the trails often for a run or bike tour. Nice little town for rest and peace. The tree was giving us a show and all the critters that live in there; salamanders, caterpillars and a couple of spiders, birds, heron, butterflyand more. Great for me becuse I was trying to mmake picture of small animals that posed for me and helped me get better in making good pictures. GREAT PLACE and perfect weather. Thanks again and maybe till next time.

All the best,

We loved our month at Cypress Cottage. It was everything the VRBO listing said it would be. Proximity to Withlacoochee bike trail was perfect for us. We'll be back next year!! Thanks Chris.

A quiet getaway with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found Cypress Lake House to be a gem. The owner has the house decorated nicely and guests will find everything and anything they need for a comfortable stay. The views from the deck are magnificent and one could sit there for hours watching wildlife. We had a wonderful stay and found this a good base to visit nearby state parks and forests. We have stayed at many rental homes, but would put this at the top. We can't wait to return!

Magical getaway

  • 5 of 5
From the second we opened the door into the main room of this amazing cottage, we were in love and felt instantly at home. What a wonderful feeling this getaway home has! It is clear how loved the Cypress Cottage has been for many years and what a great, great story on how it came to sit on the side of this beautiful lake. We wrote in the Guest Book about all the wildlife we saw and how we spent almost the entire trip at the cottage, when we had originally planned all these outings. Once there, we just didn't want to leave. We did go into historic Floral City Saturday afternoon for a while and we were enchanted. The Heritage Museum is not to be missed, not only for the great history but for the wonderful people that volunteer there. The little bakery (which looks like a house) has the best cinnamon raisin bread and the woman that owns the small store called "Forgotten Treasures" was a treasure herself. The cottage is so well-kept and loved and we didn't want for a thing. The fireplace was such a treat, the character of the cottage is fascinating, the deck is perfect and honestly? The pictures don't do it justice. Chris couldn't have been more kind, helpful or considerate. It was my birthday the day we checked in and he had everything so ready and perfect for us. Thank you! I have decided that this is where I want to spend each birthday because I came back completely renewed and relaxed. Thank you for sharing such a special place with us.

We had a wonderful time at our Cypress Lake Cottage. It was an awesome cabin, with a beautiful view, and a very peaceful place. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, actually we hated to leave! The owners were very accommodating.

Great getaway, nice lake view, close to the bike trail.

  • 5 of 5
I thought this cottage was very charming, nicely furnished and decorated and certainly well stocked with everything that one would need including a laptop with DSL access. It is very close to the bike trail with easy access onto it. The bedrooms are small but adequate. I would recommend it and I would stay there again. The property was very clean. I thought the photos adequately reflected the cottage and its charm.
