About Jamie Zito

Deb Zito has owned and operated Cactus Jack's Trail Rides LLC for the last 5 years in Ocala, Florida. When the stables at Rock Springs Run Reserve became available for a new horseback riding vendor, Deb and Jamie Zito decided to take on this beautiful new location. Along with the horseback riding, the Hammock House rental seemed like a great addition. We have always had customers ask 'Is there a romantic place to stay?' Now we can offer this amazing home to riders, and non-riders.....everyone will enjoy it!

Jamie Zito purchased this house in 2013

Why Jamie Zito chose Lake Mary

This home is all made from pecky cypress. It was originally a rancher's home. It sits in a 14,000 acre park and is right on the Wekiva River.

What makes this house unique

It has a barn/stable for guests to bring their own horses, or they can go riding at the riding stable in the park. Hiking is encouraged and wildlife is seen daily.

great place to relax, play and enjoy the outdoors

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of students from Spain to spend a few days in the area. The house was a perfect choice. The kids had a bonfire and made s'mores, a park ranger came and talked about the sea life, they went canoeing in the river, we went swimming in the nearby springs, and horseback riding at the nearby stables. All agreed this was their favorite activity of the summer!

Beautiful spot to enjoy nature and "Old Florida"

  • 4 of 5

Pictures and description of the property were accurate and helpful. Maintenance on this property is not easy on this large house and property, and seems to have fallen behind. The management is aware and they are working on upgrading. Jamie was away, but responded quickly to cell phone calls. The kitchen was sparsely outfitted, and I needed to wipe out the refrigerator before before putting our food into it. Ice make did not work, so we bought bags of ice. The rest of the house was clean and comfortable.

This was a family reunion, and we had a wonderful time being together and close to nature. On an early morning walk, we spotted 3 bears... mom and 2 yearlings. More common were the wild turkeys, deer, hawks, etc. We enjoyed bonfires and listening to the frog chorus at night. When mosquitoes drove us in, we took advantage of TVs and pool table.

The highlight was canoeing Rock Springs River in canoes rented at Kings Landing. We were not in shape, so the 8.5 miles and 4 1/2 hours were challenging. But if you like canoeing FL rivers, this is a must! We cooked all meals at the house, except a birthday celebration dinner at the German restaurant in Sanford Historic District, a charming village.

Great place for Family Reunion!

  • 4 of 5

Huge home, lots of room. Lots to do. Horseback riding was great. Did the canoeing, everyone enjoyed. Fishing, bring your own poles. Needed chairs for huge back porch, which luckily we brought. Had to bring own grill for the Reunion. Small gas grill on back porch. The Managers were awesome. My only complaint was the well water. Definitely need plenty of bottled water to drink and cook with. Horrible smell and also turned jewelry black. Next Year here we come!

Overall we'd go again!

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted by Mel at the end of wekiva rd through a gate and taken down a long bumpy dirt rd. We approached the property and entered another gate. The house looked, first impressions, like it had been unoccupied for quite a while. A bit scary. Took note of leaves, spider webs all over porch, dark. Went inside and loved the rustic look, once again dark inside even with very large windows. Spider webs all over. There was also a stench, well water. Had previously read about the bad well water. The home was well supplied with everything, linens, kitchen supplies, t paper, garbage bags, etc.. We went there for a family reunion and it was perfect for it. Plenty of room. Huge front and back yard. Used the canoes, fished and did the horseback riding. Communication was not good. Was not told where to go for the ride, so we were late. Poor service on cell phones while in the house. Had to walk way out to connect and missed several calls from family trying to find the place. Treated real good from people running the place. Felt like at home for the most part. Would have liked it to be a little cleaner, better water, and notified of the communication issue. But overall we had a great time, reunion was a success and we will definitely go again. Also the bathrooms are only in the bedrooms with no hall access, found that a little strange.

Beautiful property, great, isolated getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean & well kept. The managers are extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The surrounding state park is gorgeous. If you're looking for an incredible Central Florida getaway, the Hammock House is perfect.

Thanks Deb & Jamie!
