Paula Germain purchased this cottage in 1975
This is a smaller home but you will be amazed how roomy, comfortable and completely relaxing this home is. We have had friends and family stay here and they have been pleasantly surprised by the comfort and charm of the home. It is close to restaurants, all the chain and lots of local ones. Plus all the shopping you will need.
The home is located in Weeki Wachee Gardens, it is close to everything but far enough away for relaxation. The yard is completely fenced in. You can canoe or kayak from the ramp in the back yard.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this location during the winters of 2014 & 2015. (10-12 weeks per visit) Photos and descriptions of the cottage are accurate. It was recently redecorated, is clean, and well outfitted. Paula and Ray are attentive, friendly landlords. We enjoyed local attractions & events listed on the Hernando County website. Other renter reviews confirm our observations. Our circumstances have changed, or we would return for a third season. Thank you and best wishes to you Paula and Ray.
My husband and I spent three fabulous weeks at this very comfortable, cozy cottage on the canal! It was pure pleasure meeting the owners, Paula and Ray, both of whom could not have been more helpful or more accommodating. The cottage offers peace, quiet, comfort, all the amenities of home, and plenty of space! The canal provides manatees at your feet, turtles, and high jumping fish for entertainment! The cottage, though very private and peaceful, is conveniently located, just 5 miles to anything you might need.
Though we did not take advantage of the canoe or kayaks, they were available.
Our two small poodles loved the fully fenced yard, and had a great time chasing frogs and small lizards.
What a great house for a weekend getaway! The owners were very flexible with our arrival and departure time, and took the time to meet us there to explain what's available in the house, give us the passcode for the Wi-Fi and the local for the 2 canoes and 2 kayaks available, and point us toward the lifejackets and oars. The house is beautifully remodeled and there seemed to be everything we needed there. The outdoor area was very nicely manicured with beautiful native plants around the property and plenty of seating space. The only downfall with the property is the proximity to a major road, so you can hear and see cars driving by from the backyard. There are restaurants and gas stations within a half mile of the house, but the major road doesn't have a sidewalk, so you pretty much have to drive everywhere you go, unless it's by boat (and one of the restaurants was on the river). We saw a couple manatee during our April visit, and the river wasn't as crowded as it gets in the summer. It's about a 10 minute paddle from the house down the canal to the actual river. The access to the canal from the house could be improved, as it seemed we had issues getting in/out of our boats every time. But all of these were small issues in what was an absolutely wonderful weekend! We'll be back.
What a great little cottage; decorated perfect for the area. Easy river access from the canal. Had a great time kayaking and canoeing and will definately be back. Just down the road is "Howard's" Flea Market and Homasassa River State Park. Great location and the perfect vacation get a-way! Owner's are wonderful and easy to deal with.
Weeki Wachee River is a quiet community and yet it is only minutes from everything....Weeki Wachee State Park and Buccaneer Bay Water Park, restaurants, shopping, golf, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, tubing. North of us is Homosassa Springs, Crystal River and Rainbow River. To the west are Orlando theme parks which are about an hour away as is Tampa and Ybor City to our south. Clearwater, St.Pete & Bradenton Beaches are also about an hour south of here. The Gulf of Mexico and local beaches are about 10 minutes away. Local canoe and kayak rentals are located at Rogers Park. The sandy bottom and crystal clear water make it an ideal spot to witness lots of wild birds, turtles, manatees, otters, dolphins and a abundance of fish.
