About the property

Cottage #52 in Steinhatchee Landing Resort


The 2017 bay scallop season for Dixie County and parts of Taylor County will be open from June 16 through Sept. 10. This includes all state waters from the Suwannee River through the Fenholloway River. These changes are for 2017 only and are an opportunity to explore regionally-specific bay scallop seasons.

Cottage #52 in Steinhatchee Landing Resort

Turtle’s Nest is a beautiful 2 bedroom cottage located in the most beautiful vacation resort in Steinhatchee. Steinhatchee is known for its fishing and scalloping, as well as its ambiance for offering a taste of “Old Florida” style living. From the laid back atmosphere to the moss-covered trees, it is truly a vacation that will offer a step back in time.

This 2 story cottage with its large living/dining/kitchen area on the first floor offers a wonderful gathering area for friends and family. The hardwood floors and ceiling fans add to the rich decor of the home. Sit on the screened-in front porch and watch the guests walk by with their 'catch of the day.'

Upstairs offers a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, plenty of closet space and a private master bathroom. The second bedroom with a queen-sized bed and the double sofa bed in the landing area share the second bath.

Conveniently located to the pool, spa, petting zoo and the docks, the Turtle’s Nest is perfectly located within the resort. Just a short stroll to anywhere in the resort.

Come enjoy the Steinhatchee life for a weekend, week, or more. It will be a vacation memories are made of!

Just a few more utensils please

  • 3 of 5

The Turtle's Nest is a sweet house, like others that we have stayed in at Steinhatchee Landing. I love this little "community"

The furnishings are very sparse. Luckily I brought a few extra towels as well as a frying pan and large cooking pot. They only had a spatula for utensils, so come prepared, or eat out. Overall, we had a great time.

Turtle's Nest is the Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

My favorite thing about the Turtle's Nest is the screened porch and patio area. We have had the pleasure of staying here twice and it's like a second home. Perfect location within the resort. Close to the pool, spa and workout area. Close to the docks. The landscaping in incredible and every time I took a walk around the grounds I would see something new to enjoy. It's quite and tranquil and I never want to leave! The house is clean and comfortable and I plan on returning again and again. One last thing and I know it says not to get personal on these reviews but I have enjoyed working with Trish of Steinhatchee Retreats to book our stays for a couple years now and she never disappoints. You can count on her .....and to me that makes the whole experience so much more relaxing! Thanks Trish!!

Two family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! It was very clean and well managed the only suggestion would be that the second bedroom needs thicker pillows but that is minor!

winter haven,fl

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do no justice. We were amazed at how much bigger in person it was. Plenty of room. We stayed for 5 nights. First time at steinhatchee. Very relaxing and serene. Beautiful resort with plenty to do. This is a place to get away and simply relax and enjoy quality family time. We stayed with family in two rentals in landing resort with two teenagers. They even had a great time, we played alot of tennis:) Thanks for sharing your beautiful home and community. We are already planning on returning and staying in turtle's nest again.
