My wife Nancy and I, William, live in Polk City, Florida. Nancy is from New Jersey and I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. We met at the First Baptist Church in West Hollywood, Florida.

I served four years in the Air Force. Nancy and I attended the Bible Baptist Seminary now known as Arlington Baptist College in Arlington, Texas. Here we studied for the ministry and I graduated in 1962.

We organized a church and Christian School in south Florida where we served for 14 years. From there we moved to Ocala, Florida and organized Abundant Funds, a fund raising company for private Christian Schools serving schools in 24 states. In 2008 Abundant Funds merged with another Christian Company and I went into 'semi' retirement. I still work with Christian Schools part time with a company founded by my youngest son

Dr.William Roberts

William Roberts purchased this cabin in 2005

Nancy and I wanted a place close by to get away from it all and a place where our four sons and their families could enjoy and relax with their families (sixteen grandchildren and one great). The river cabin is also a place we can invite friends on special occasions. We had a choice between the Gulf and the River. Nancy chose the river and it has proven to be an excellent choice.

Our cabin on the river offers scenery and relaxation. Unfortunately we are only using the cabin about 25% of the time. Our bills continue 100% of the time. We decided to place the cabin on the rental program and make it available to others.

Dr. William Roberts

The cabin is in a rustic setting on the river. This is total change of scenery and being on the water is super relaxing. Across the river from the cabin is the Weeki Wachee Perserve where we observe all types of wildlife and of course the river is full of many varieties of fish and manatees.

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Four of us stayed here and totally fell in love. Its extremely peaceful and the river was awesome. The place has everything that you need..its as if your at home. My youngest is 6 and my middle child is 14 and they had a blast kayaking and swimming the river. The owners are absolutely wonderful people. My boyfriend had to be hospitalized while on vacation and the owner called everyday that he was in to check on him. They were very kind to us. I am grateful that we had the opportunity to rent this place and look forward to renting it again in the future.

BIRDS & FISH & MANTEES, OH MY!

Birds & Fish & Mantees, oh my!
  • 5 of 5
Our family of six had an amazing ten nights at this home. The house has a cute rustic exterior and inside is spotlessly clean yet warm and inviting. The river is absolutely beautiful, the dock area is great and we used the canoe nearly every day. It seems that at any given point wildlife abounds right off the dock, we saw manatees, blue crabs, heron, cormorant, and all sorts of fish. Speaking of fish, we caught bluegill, grunt and bass right off the dock as well and then used the newer grill on the patio to cook it up! We had a rental car and made day trips to nearby Pine Island and even Tampa was only about 45 minutes south. The house had everything that we could possibly need and the owners were wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend this home to anyone without hesitation.

RESTFUL!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at your lovely cabin this past January, 2014. It was like being home away from home. We appreciate the use of your canoe so that we could see the Manatee. It so much fun! When we weren't on the Weeki Wachee River, we enjoyed just walking in the area enjoying all the birds. Thank you again for allowing us to stay at your cabin. We made wonderful memories. Thank you for the wonderful surprise of the Ice Cream Basket! We enjoyed it very much. You are certainly delightful hosts.

Owner's Response: The River Cabin has been a source of joy and a place of relaxation for Nancy and I, our four sons and their families (16 grandchildren). It gives us great pleasure to see others enjoy the river and relax in the cabin. A walk through the area and relaxing on the docks in the evening across from the Weeki Wachee preserve observing the manatees and other Florida wildlife is always a great way to close out the day. Thank you for being GREAT GUEST.

VERY NICE, CLEAN, COMFORTABLE CABIN.

  • 5 of 5
Thank You so much for letting us stay at your cabin. We are so comfortable here we don't want to leave. The weather could have been better for our two week stay, but a lot better then what Mich. had to offer. We did get to see quite a few manatees in the river, and birds galore. We are looking forward to staying again next year. Thank You again, what a very nice, clean, comfortable home you have.
