Husband Larry is retired FL State worker. Wife Linda is a retired registered nurse. We love to boat and fish and always take our dogs along. We have two Chihuahuas and two maltipoos. All four pups have life preservers and enjoy their time on the water and exploring islands. I, Linda, love gardening and collect orchids, ferns, begonias, and succulents. It has been fun landscaping around the cabin.
Larry loves to fish in the inshore and back waters of the gulf. He loves to share fishing tips.
Linda Roderick purchased this cabin in 2012
We moved to this location in Weeki Wachee 22 years ago and enjoy it very much. We consider this area a paradise. In January 2012 the place across the street became available. We decided to remodel it and use it as a rental so others could enjoy our haven. Now, I must explain, although we are across the street, we cannot see the cabin for the trees. And we will of course respect your privacy. But if you have a need, we are here to help. We want to share our paradise with others.
We especially enjoy that we are just 4 miles from the conveniences and crowds on the US 19, but yet in this peaceful haven it is laid back and stress free. Seeing the seabirds, boats going by, people enjoying the sunshine as they kayak past us, viewing manatees, river otters, deer, and porpoise from our second story window is always a joy. We never tire of seeing herds of manatees and have enjoyed their touch as they have brushed against us on the river. Cooling off in the 72 degree water refreshes us for the entire day. There are so many sandy private beaches along the winding river to get out of the kayak and take a dip or you may prefer to dip at Rogers Park. Our favorite kayak trip is down the Weeki Wachee River to the connecting Mud River to a narrow creek that has wild orchids growing in the trees. It takes several hours to make the trek and it has been a ritual we enjoy every few months. Recently we put our kayaks in at the Weeki Wachee Springs Attraction ($5.00 fee per kayak to launch from the Springs) and enjoyed a scenic four hour kayak adventure. The river has no houses and is unspoiled like Old Florida for the first four miles upstream.
Booked the cabin for a little family getaway. It was a great spot, the whole family had a ball. Lot's of kayaking, fire building and marshmallow toasting. The cottage absolutely spotless. Thank you so much, we will be back.
The cabin was very clean and had a lot of extras that most places don't have. It was set up very nicely and it gave us a very comfortable feeling. The owners are super nice and knowledgeable about the area. We will definitely vacation here again and we recommend the cabin to anybody who is looking for a great vacation with a special touch of nature. Make sure to utilize the kayaks/ canoe that come with the rental and can be docked from the property. The water has so much to offer; great fishing, clear water, swimming, manatee and much more! The only regret that we have is that we didn't stay longer.
Awesome! We just wanted to get away and relax. It felt like Home away from Home! Definitely would go again, and the hosts were just so nice. Thank you very much for a much needed small vacation!
This is a fantastic cabin and feels like home the minute you walk in the door. Linda has thought of everything you might possibly need and its these extras that make this cabin so special. We went kayaking and swimming every day and have come back from our vacation totally refreshed and relaxed. We will definitely return for another stay.
One of our best vacations. One of the kids said that this was so good that we should change our plans of the next European vacation and come back here next summer. Everything was great, everyone loved it. We would like to thank the owner Linda for the excellent work that she does with the cabin's maintenance and the cleaning. W have recommended this cabin to all of friends and family. Thanks.
This is an adorable cabin, and we had a terrific weekend! The boys lost some lures in the trees, and we did a lot of relaxing on the porch with "Cabin Kitty", who came to visit us daily. You will want for nothing at this cabin, because Linda has thought of every contingency possible. I highly recommend!
