About Jamie Zito

Deb Zito has owned and operated Cactus Jack's Trail Rides LLC for the last 5 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

Why Jamie Zito chose Central Florida

This home is all made from pecky cypress. It was originally a rancher's home. It sits in a 14,000 acre park and is right on the Wekiva River.

What makes this house unique

It has a barn/stable for guests to bring their own horses, or they can go riding at the riding stable in the park. Hiking is encouraged and wildlife is seen daily.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We visited Hammock House for a family reunion. We fell in love and plan on going back every year. The house is spacious and very comfortable. Everything was very clean. We have 2 small children and they had a blast running around looking at all the wildlife. Every morning we woke to deer, turkey, and horses!!! The house came with 2 canoes that we took out a few times. The kids (little and big) enjoyed it very much. Booking was easy and Jamie gave us some great ideas!! We can't wait to come back!!!

What we had hoped for!

Our family spent the weekend together at the Hammock House and had a GREAT time! We enjoyed the property, the spacious accommodations, the wildlife, the canoes, and of course, each other. It was perfect for us and we appreciated all that it had to offer.

Amazing, quiet, great get away from the real world

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It more than met our expectations.. Our guest were taken by surprise at the over all property. Most including myself, did not know that this beautiful place was available for rental. We will definitely use it again. It was well kept, spacious, a lot of wild life and a great place for a large gathering.

Wonderful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Hammock House, and again we had 3 wonderful days there. We spent time canoeing on the Wekiva river, taking evening walks to observe the rich wildlife and sometimes just relaxing, playing in the spacious, nice house.

For the first time, we saw a black bear.
