Perfect for couples looking to enjoy the Tampa/St. Pete area but in the comfort and serenity of a 2 acres oasis set on beautiful lake. This 600 square foot studio-style cottage has a bright sitting room that opens into a kitchenette with microwave, mini-fridge, coffeemaker. Bedroom with flat screen tv with HBO and more. Enjoy cocktails on the lakefront gazebo at sunset. Relax in the lakefront hammock or kayak from one lake to another.
Our family loves living on this beautiful lake and we love to have guests stay in the cottage. We moved here in 2008 and immediately fell in love with this property. My husband wanted to raise our kids the way he was a lake where you can fish, swim and kayak the day away. I am a writer and author of a children's book called Lollipop Seeds that Sprout for Kind Deeds. Hence the name, Lollipop Cottage!
Cherri Prince purchased this cottage in 2009
This almost 2 acre property is often described as a resort. Our goal is for guests to feel like they are staying in a park, with lush green grass and tropical plants to a gazebo (perfect for our kids wedding someday!) a lakeside hammock and even a zipline. Relax and renew yourself.
We fell in love with the sunsets over the lake. We've had the best conversations over a glass of wine in the gazebo. We travel a lot on business so we designed the cottage interior to match what we love about the best hotels we stay in---flat screen tv, roomy sitting area with plenty of sun, comfy bed and of course coffee.
My husband and I came down for a business trip in June. We wanted somewhere off the beaten path, and this was more than we imagined! The view out back is GORGEOUS. We loved the hammock, dock, and the gazebo! The cottage was comfy and had just enough room for us. Everything was clean and well taken care of! Cherri is so kind and helpful! This was a FABULOUS trip. I told my friends and family that it was more fun than my honeymoon! We definitely recommend the Lollipop Cottage!
We had a really good time here. Well kept cottage, welcoming and friendly hosts, beautiful lakes. Cheri and Frank went out of their way to accommodate us. Lots do do and see in area.
This was an adorable little mother in law suite, that provided all our needs for the weekend. It was well kept, comfortable bed and the view was outstanding.
This is a great small property 20 minutes away from Tampa Bay. The property is very well maintained and clean.
The sunsets never got old from the dock.
I would recommend this property to couples traveling to Tampa Bay. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay at cottage.
Thanks Cherri for your hospitality and the privilege to stay at your property.

We had a great time at this property! The cottage is very sweet and comfortable, and having the kayaks was an easy way to get out and enjoy the lake and sunshine. This location was perfect for our daily trips into Tampa. Frank and Cherri are gracious hosts and I've already recommended this property to friends and family going to the Tampa area. Truly a little jewel.
We were impressed with our stay from the very beginning! We came to Florida to visit my good friend and her new baby right after Easter. Cherri writes children's books and had a gift bag ready with her book about the Lollipop Cottage for me to give to my friend. Our stay was perfect. The cottage is very private and we got to enjoy the dock every morning while we drank our coffee and finished the day on the porch watching the sunset. We also went kayaking one morning on the lake. The Lollipop Cottage is the perfect romantic get away. We definitely plan on returning soon! Thank you Cherri and Frank!

While you will feel like you are in the middle of a rural oasis, you will actually be only 20-30 minutes from downtown Tampa (historic Ybor city), Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, Tarpon Springs (world famous Greek area) and some of the nations most beautiful beaches in Clearwater or St. Pete. You could even do a day trip to the parks of Disney World (90 minute drive). Plus getting here is easy as we're only 20 minutes from Tampa/St.Pete International Airport
