Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Julie. We enjoyed our visit. Caught 6 bass off the dock and enjoyed watching the little gator that hung out around the dock. We named him Peewee! Fished in Lake Seminole for the fist time... caught some beautiful bluegills! We also tried the Pond House.. wonderful food! Thanks for sharing your cabin. We had a great time!

The property was very clean and comfty.Although we did not catch any fish we enjoyed the early morning on the dock. We will surely be returning. It's not far from home but far enough to get away from work and kids.

Loved our stay at the cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a nice quite place to spend our 4th of July get away. We found it at Hucks Lake Cabin. We spend five nights and enjoyed everyone of them. Nothing like having that first cup of coffee sitting on the deck watching the fish jumping in the water and listening to the birds singing their early morning songs. We didn't see any gators in the water, only some turtles and a duck. We did see a big snake! Our time there past way to fast. But we are already making plans for our next visit to Hucks Lake Cabin. Thank you Julie, for sharing your cabin.

Jim,Betty,Brittany and of course Chloe.

Another Great Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry this review is late!!!! We had stayed for the second year at our favorite home away from home! It was so peaceful and just like we remembered! We got to catch some awesome fish and we even ventured out a little further than last time, lol. Julie was great and the lemonade was just what we needed after a day of fishing!!! And it was so nice to meet her mom too! We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the "real world" and just want to unwind and relax in peace and quiet. We will definitely be back again next year, if not sooner : )
