Our families have been vacationing in Floral City since 1968. We've enjoyed this area so much so that we've acquired these additional properties. We hope you'll enjoy any or all of them as much as our families do.

                                                    Lovely getaway - great location

                                                    Lee C.Grand Isle, Vermont

                                                    We spent a wonderful month at th Cove Cottage. We love Floral City and this cottage. Its proximity to the Withlacoochee Trail made biking easy, and we were able to easily access many other fun activities in the area. The cottage had everything we needed in a comfortable and quaint setting.

                                                    We loved the Cove

                                                    Elaine R.

                                                    This was our second visit to the Cove. It is beautifull, cozy, and comfortable inside. Outside, it sits in a quiet, friendly, small neighborhood. We feel at home there.

                                                    Nice Getaway

                                                    Carol C.

                                                    This was my third visit to Cove Cottage and I'm looking forward to returning. It's quiet and relaxing. Besides bicycling I also ran my kayak on the Rainbow and Withlecootchee Rivers.

                                                    Perfect for a long weekend

                                                    Jennah j.

                                                    My husband, our dog and I stayed at the Cove for Thanksgiving and it was the perfect place to get away from it all. The cabin has everything you need to prep a Thanksgiving dinner and the Dish TV was welcome surprise on a cold rainy day. Also close to many trails/state parks and "downtown" Floral City. Would stay again.

                                                    COZY and peaceful

                                                    Lynn G.

                                                    Perfect place to call home when you are on a busy schedule especially. Just comfy and so peaceful, very clean, very great owners. Will be back for certain. Thank you Mary :)

                                                    Walking into such a clean wonderful space with everything that a home should have.

                                                    Rick H.

                                                    From the moment I pulled in I could tell this was a well maintained home. Once walking in I had the feeling that I was walking into someone's home not a rental. The neighbors were great and welcoming. All the appliances were clean and worked wonderfully. We did message several times with the owners as I was here because of a family illness and they worked with us on needing to extend my stay. They made a very stressful time for my family better by having such an awesome home and being so accommodating. I would recommend anyone to book this place before any other.
