About Jamie Zito
Deb Zito has owned and operated Cactus Jack's Trail Rides LLC for the last 10 years in Ocala, Florida. When the stables at Rock Springs Run Reserve became available for a new horseback riding vendor, Deb and Jamie Zito decided to take on this beautiful new location. Along with the horseback riding, the Hammock House rental seemed like a great addition. We have always had customers ask 'Is there a romantic place to stay?' Now we can offer this amazing home to riders, and non-riders.....everyone will enjoy it!
Jamie Zito purchased this House in 2013

Family of 8 shared this home for a weekend. It was very comfortable and the kids in the group loved the home (to the point they were sad to depart). Deer visited each morning by the river. Lots of games and the pool table was a hit. Very peaceful and relaxing. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
1. Be sure to use the address to the Park and not to the house or you will end up at the wrong gate. You must enter the Park to access the house. (Follow the owner's instructions once inside the Park.)
2. The house is on well water and does have a mineral smell. It was very mild. Our family brought water to drink, so the well water had little impact on us. (Its just life in Florida when you have a well.)
3. Overall, the house was very clean. However, it could use a deep clean of ceiling fans/vents/etc. and a run through to replace burned out bulbs. All living, bath, and bedroom areas were spotless and there are no "cleanliness" issues with this home. Again, just facts of life in Florida...spiders will make cobwebs and dust does collect.
Overall this was a great place for a family reunion and I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this location.
Idyllic house in the woods
We’ve had a wonderful stay - we took out canoes and paddled through the rivers, we spent well on very comfortable beds, we sat up and talked around the fire area in the back garden. You couldn’t ask for a nicer spot.
Paradise in the middle of suburbia
Once you make it through the construction chaos on 46 into Rock Springs Run State Park and turn left on Ethel it is like you have entered another world. Great place to kayak, bike or just relax. Definitely a hidden gem.
Peaceful beauty on the river
We enjoyed this unique house on incredibly beautiful land. Woods and river made it a dream for our group of nature lovers. 4 bedroom & 4 bathrooms gave the 8 of us plenty of space and privacy. The big kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed to cook the food we brought. The back porch view was so satisfying. Thank you.
Secluded river retreat
The property and house is amazing just as described. Spacious family areas for visiting eating and hanging out.
we were surprised the house did not contain a guest book or map of The Preserve area or surrounding activites. However we were local and figured it all out anyway.
The house could use a few repairs on the shower doors, but other than that it was well furnished and stocked with everything but food. We would definitely stay again. Everyone felt at home.
Nice and quiet
We had my daughter’s 30 th birthday here with family and friends staying over. We had a wonderful time!
This resort rental is rural, but 10 minutes from mall, restaurants, movie theaters. 15 minutes from hospital. Bring your own horse or trail riding available within the park. House is riverfront for canoes and fishing.
