I am a real estate broker in Citrus County and love my job. There is always someone new to meet. We moved here from Miami in 1997 to get away from the fast paced way of life and crime. Citrus County is like a breath of fresh air.
Come experience why we chose Floral City. You will love it.

This is our guest cottage on our farm where we raise Cattle. We are part of the growing Agri-Tourism trend of city dwellers wanting to refresh their systems and experience nature at its best. Our personal guests all love to come here and stay so we decided to share it with others when it is not in use by family and friends.
There is a sense of peace and serenity here yet we are so close to everything. Come find out for yoursel why we love it here.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Cabin. A great place to get away from the cold North. We enjoyed the animals both domestic an wild. Nice location for walks and bike riding. Floral City is a wonderful slice of Old Florida with a very nice Art Center and a major bike trail that runs through the village. I enjoyed the quiet for painting and relaxing on the porch. One highlight was going on an airboat ride with Arron. Both Darlene and Arron were very accommodating and made us feel at home. We plan on returning.
Last night, I had a dream about this cottage, which reminded me that I hadn’t posted a review about it! I’m fixing that now. :)
My husband and I spent our weeklong honeymoon in this little cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, quiet, and charming. The location is just beautiful; we loved walking along the road every day, enjoying the scenery and wildlife. We appreciated having the option of cooking our meals and doing our laundry. It was a little home away from home.
We also enjoyed local attractions, such as the nearby Rails to Trails walking/bike path, and the art gallery in Floral City. Inverness is a nearby town, and we were able to find everything we needed there. For eating out in Inverness, we especially liked El Ranchito (Mexican) and Joe’s Family Restaurant. It was nice to have amenities so close, while still feeling like we were away from the world.
This was our second year in a row my wife and I stayed at this peaceful cottage.As we drove thru the gate, it felt like we were coming home again. Darlene, Aaron & family really make you feel welcome. If you want to experience Old Florida, Floral City is it. Public boat launch is only 2 miles up the road if you want to fish or canoe. It is centrally located so there are lots of attractions within 1-3 hours. Also the Withlacoochee Bike Trail is in Floral City. We love it here and will definitely be coming back.
We just got back after two months in this cottage. We really liked how quiet it was. There was a herd of deer, a flock of wild turkeys, three sand hill cranes and the wild hog that we were lucky enough to see. The cottages was very clean and neat and had all very good utensils and dishes.The bed was very comfortable also. The owners are exceptionally nice people and care about your needs.There is a nice bike path in Floral City that can also be walked on. Also a nice friendly library. Inverness is a short ways away and has just about any kind of business or restaurant that we could think of. We would recommend this rental.
This was a wonderful experience! I selected this location because I needed a really quiet place to focus on my writing. This turned out to be the perfect place for concentration, peace, and quiet. The only interruptions were twice-daily visits by sand-hill cranes. Highlights of the days were the sunrise and sunset out on the patio, as well as daily rides on the best bike trail in Florida. The house was beautiful and well-kept and the hosts warm and helpful.
We enjoyed our stay. We did a lot of hiking and bird watching and visiting family, but it was so good to come back to the cottage and relax on the porch. The museum in Floral city was great for information on the local area itself . Also the rail trails were great for walking and biking. There are many restaurants in the area along rt41 and also at Inverness. The cottage and surrounding area was quiet and the owners very friendly. The weather was great too! Thanks for a great time. Mike and Sharon
