Mary Dudley purchased this cottage in 2007
Our families have been vacationing in this beautiful, rustic, secluded neighborhood since 1968. We've acquired several properties since then.
Lotus is the ideal RELAXATION STATION. Coffee on the rockers overlooking the lake first thing in the morning is one of our favorite places in the entire world. You won't want to leave the three rocking chairs. We have a row boat waiting at all times. There is a bike trail .02 miles from lotus. bikes can be rented .09 miles away. There are many options to set up for a croquet championship or badminton tournament. While we do have corn toss boards, if you have your own bags, bring them along. Guests have caught nice fish on our lake.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay here at Lotus Point Lake House. We will definitely be back! Your home is beautiful and perfect for a relaxing vacation on the lake. We're looking for the exact spot of heaven. Can we buy this place? LOL. We hope our extended family will join us next time we come to Florida. Loved spending time on the enclosed porch listening to the sounds of wildlife and watching the cranes swoop over the lake and walk along the shore. Thank you for providing the bikes and rowboat. We biked the Withlacoochee Trail and fished from the boat (and caught fish!) Enjoyed an afternoon at Fort Island Gulf Beach, an afternoon at Rainbow Springs, andn an afternoon at Weekie Wachi. Breakfast at Bagels and more outside of Floral City on the way to Inverness is not to be missed. For visitors reading this entry who are visiting the area for the first time, be sure to see Cooter Pond Park in Inverness for turtles and gators. Also, Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park for the wonderful variety of animals and especially the beautiful manatees.
Thank you, Dudleys, for sharing your home with us.

Lake was beautiful..hubby even caught bass. Home was clean and furnished adequately...we will rent again when we come back to visit family. Loved the country setting...reminds me of my old Floral City home.
We stayed for a weekend and had a wonderful time. The home was clean, comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. The property was spectacular and was just private enough without being too far away from things to do. Floral City and Inverness are very charming towns. Even though there is a lot to do in the area, if you want to relax and do a whole lot of nothing, this property is the perfect place. Thank you for sharing it and we hope to come back soon.
This house is clean, modern and beautiful. Property is a quiet retreat with plenty of room for spreading out and just relaxing.
This was my first time spending time in this home owned by the Dudley family. My family enjoys that area and how laid back it is. The home was very accommodating and relaxing. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to spend some quiet time and getting a little fishing to boot.
Great, private location to relax and unwind. I would recommend this property to friends and family. In addition, I will stay here again in the future.
