The cottage was situated about 20 minutes from downtown DeLand on a beautiful horse farm. We loved waking up in the morning and strolling around while drinking coffee. The owner, Jean, was accomodating of every request and Debbie, who works with the horses, was full of knowledge and always happy to answer questions. On a couple of mornings it was really foggy and the whole place was like something out of a fairy tale. There are two thing to be aware of before you go - driving in this area at night is DARK. It is rural. So just be careful. Also, the water has a lot of sulfur in it (actually all of DeLand's water seems to be like this to varying degrees). If that is a problem, bring jugs of water with you to drink and brush your teeth.
