YOU DESERVE THIS!

Lose yourself in the charm, beauty and the tranquil surroundings of this cozy Floral City country cottage. Wood beams, wood floors and wrap around beadboard warmly embrace you when you cross the threshold to unwind and recharge. Hike or ride on the Withlacoochee State Rails to Trails' bike trail 0.2 miles away. Bike rental at Hampton's Edge 0.2 miles on your way to the trail.

Our 800 square foot cottage sleeps 2-4 people.

Floral City holds a delightful Strawberry Festival in March.

Beautiful Rainbow Springs - a must see and feel - can be reached in 40 minutes. Swimming in any of the many refreshing, invigorating Florida Springs is like none other. Secluded cave exploration awaits you fifteen minutes away at Peace Caves. Airboat rides, horseback riding, and miniature golf are also a fun day trip. For an exciting evening, attend the races at the Citrus County Speedway just down the road. Shopping, restaurants and theaters are within minutes.

VRBO listing #194799: Located down the country road from this property is our sister cottage, another sanctuary to relax and unwind, Lotus Lake House, a 2 bedroom/2 bath which sits on Lake Consuela. It sleeps 6-7 people.

VRBO Listing #266094: Just to the north of Cove Cottage is Cypress Cottage, our brother cottage, a beautiful rustic lake view cottage with wood exterior and knotty pine interior walls, ceilings, beams, fireplace and charm galore. It is a 1000 square foot two bedroom/one bath (shower) with full amenities. Outside you can enjoy the platform porch, two-picnic table pavillion, fire pit, deck, bikes and boats.

All three properties are ideal for multi-family or group vacations, retreats, etc.

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.

Busch Gardens is 75 minutes to the southeast.

Disney World is 80 minutes to the east.

This property is located 75 minutes north of Tampa Airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Mary, for sharing your little piece of restland retreat. Reminded me of being back in the Carolina mountains. Peaceful, restful and relaxing! A joy to be at and hard to leave...a chance to step back in time and regroup. Being next door to Floral City was a plus. George

Wonderful accomodations and area!

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed Charming Cove Cottage! It's as the title implies - - very charming - - with a quiet, off-the beaten-path location, and all the amenities one would desire. I hope the cottage is available next time I'm in the area!

A little bit away off the beaten path, but very cozy!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here a few days while exploring the area. Very comfortable and affordable. Short drives to Homosassa Springs, Crystal Springs, Inverness and Brooksville. Short jog to bike trail for a morning run. Would stay again! Thank you for the hospitality.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was the perfect size for us, and great spot for our dog. Great location for access to biking trails. Heard the sandhill crates every morning, and saw pileated woodpeckers. If the bed was better and bath sink didn't drip, it would have been five stars.

Very nice place for a good price

  • 4 of 5

Place on the inside was very nice. Washing machine and dryer were very handy to have. Didn't use the gas grill that was on the front porch because it was so dry around there. Didn't want to set it on the wood floor of the porch or the ground. Bed needed a slight adjustment to it because it sloped down on the one side. Did not look to see exactly what the problem was. Quiet location to relax and enjoy. Definitely pleased with our stay.

Absolutely Wonďerful😀

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was awesome and very clean.. Owner was just a phone call away if I needed to ask questions, The neighbors, Betty and John were so helpful, and very nice people. Floral City is quaint. We walked on the state railroad trail several times with our Boston Terrier. The Cozy Cove Cottage sits on a large wooded lot just out of town.. We'll equiped...The pictures do not do it justice. We definitely plan on returning.
