About William Roberts

My wife Nancy and I, William, live in Polk City, Florida. Nancy is from New Jersey and I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. We met at the First Baptist Church in West Hollywood, Florida.

I served four years in the Air Force. Nancy and I attended the Bible Baptist Seminary now known as Arlington Baptist College in Arlington, Texas. Here we studied for the ministry and I graduated in 1962.

We organized a church and Christian School in south Florida where we served for 14 years. From there we moved to Ocala, Florida and organized Abundant Funds, a fund raising company for private Christian Schools serving schools in 24 states. In 2008 Abundant Funds merged with another Christian Company and I went into 'semi' retirement. I still work with Christian Schools part time with a company founded by my youngest son

William Roberts purchased this cabin in 2005

Why William Roberts chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Nancy and I wanted a place close by to get away from it all and a place where our four sons and their families could enjoy and relax with their families (sixteen grandchildren and one great). The river cabin is also a place we can invite friends on special occasions. We had a choice between the Gulf and the River. Nancy chose the river and it has proven to be an excellent choice.

Our cabin on the river offers scenery and relaxation. Unfortunately we are only using the cabin about 25% of the time. Our bills continue 100% of the time. We decided to place the cabin on the rental program and make it available to others.

Dr. William Roberts

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a rustic setting on the river. This is a total change of scenery and being on the water is super relaxing. Across the river from the cabin is the Weeki Wachee Preserve where we observe all types of wildlife including a variety of birds. The river is full of many varieties of fish and manatees..

There should be more Stars than Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We returned yesterday from a 4 night stay here.....it is AMAZING....clean....comfortable....extremely well equipped! I could go on & on but I will say that I would recommend this cabin to anyone & everyone (& I already have :) ) Awesome location and right on the river! Weeki Wachee park is but maybe 4-5 short miles of country road traffic...there is also another park (Rogers) just a couple miles away. Excellent choice of places to eat from the normal chains to down home restaurants with local flair. Close to Pine Island for the beach & Bayport for fishing & the Bayport Inn serves excellent food & beverages...with an outside tiki bar & friendly visitors that land on the rails to hope for a bite.

I can't say enough to properly describe the cabin...well equipped for the little ones also...lots of fluffy towels....am ice maker...washer/dryer.....comfy furniture & beds & movies...puzzles & games for rainy days.

We will be returning...I have a back injured that hindered some of our activity....a canoe is furnished for your use...with plenty of life jackets & paddles...we were unable to take advantage of that due to my back but next time For Sure!! The duel docks are perfect for watching the steady stream of kayaks & canoes...we didn't see any manatees's..too many boats so they probably stayed in the canals....maybe next time :) I Highly Recommend this for your vaca & the owner is extremely details oriented & everything you could want is supplied....just bring your food & drinks! Amazing vacation...even with a bad back!

Cabin On Weeki Wachee

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay. Had so much fun watching all the wild life right from the dock. Highly recommend for families, clean, canoe and so many things to do on the river. We rented a motor boat and spent time on river.

I also loved we could do our own laundry right there. They have everything you would need. We will be back!

Owner's Response: The Weeki Wachee River is absolutely amazing. The Weeki Wachee preserve is directly across the river from the Cabin. From our spacious docks one can view all kinds of wildlife in the woods and in the water. Manatees visit our docks frequently. Included in the rental is a canoe and life vest for you and your family to explore the river which leads to the Gulf and the Weeki Wachee Springs. And yes the cabin is fully equipped. You only need to bring your personal items and food. William & Nancy

Good Morning,

We just got back from your home yesterday, we stayed Sept 10 - 13 2015. 3 nights is not enough, but we so very much enjoyed our stay. Home has everything you need. (Well we had to get toilet paper and garbage bags) Otherwise, it is in a perfect location on the river!! Saw 10 manatees pass us in the canoe travelling upstream. I heard its breeding season, so they were just incredible. We have rented several houses over the past 20 years, and this location was definitely the best one!! Directly on the river, up stream, just a short canoe/kayak ride to pure heaven up stream. Crabs right under the dock feeding, mullet jumping, manatees galore. I am already looking at dates to go back. Price of this home is so reasonable and I just posted the link to my Facebook to share this home with others. Thank you again, we look forward to coming back...sooner then you think!! :)))

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 3 children ages 1 1/2, 3 and 13) all had an amazing time the week we spent here! The location is perfect, the house is clean and homey(even toys and games for the kids...we left a few!)! The moment we walked in after our 3 day coastal journey in the SUV, we felt at home! Weeki Wachee Spring and River are the most beautiful waters anywhere! The wild life is all over! We saw manatees, butterflies of all colors and sizes, birds and frogs, crabs, and even lizards in the yard every day! It's like living in a nature preseve! The kids all loved it and no one ever felt bored! We used the canoe every day and snorkled the river several times! The patio and docks are second to none, for relaxing and enjoying the awe of beauty abounding around! Everything about this part of Florida and this house are amazing! A rare gem! We'll return for years to come!

Owner's Response: Great review. When staying in the Cabin on the Weeki Wachee River the feeling is amazing. It is an experience difficult to explain. The moment my wife and I arrive at the cabin and walk through the door it seems the everyday burdens of life are lifted. My favorite time and place is the porch early in the morning drinking my coffee, watching the river wake up and the wildlife begin to move about. It is absolutely amazing. My wife and I are always excited to go to the river. William/Nancy

Our cabin is located directly on the crystal clear Weeki Wachee River at one of the widest parts of the river. It is across from the Weeki Wachee preserve where you will experience the wildlife and beauty of Florida’s Nature Coast. It’s Florida at its finest with our two new, gorgeous inviting docks (24x24 / 8x24) to view our animal neighbors: manatees, river otters, herons, ibis, and eagles frequent the river both at our docks and across the river on the Weeki Wachee Preserve. See the fish clear to the bottom and swim with the gentle manatees that make daily treks by our home. Only 20 minutes by boat to the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak or paddle board, or just rent them nearby. You may also want to visit the Weeki Wachee Springs State Waterpark with the world-famous LIVE MERMAID SHOW and Weeki Wachee Canoe rentals (15 minutes), the white sand beach at Pine Island on the Gulf (20 minutes), Rogers Park, 3 acre sandy beach on the Weeki Wachee has roped off swimming area, volley ball court, playground, boat ramp,and kayak ramp. (5 minutes). At the end of the day you can cook your own catch on the cabin gas grill and lounge on the two docks or dine at one of many great local restaurants. Within 20 minutes you can choose from two state parks equipped with pavilions, picnic benches, grills and fishing spots. Fishing boats for deep fishing in the Gulf are also available. Just an hour north of Tampa and St. Petersburg and minutes from Hernando Beach, restaurants, and shopping. Only two hours to Orlando theme parks (Sea World, Disney World, MGM & Universal Studios ). 30 minutes north to Homosassa Wildlife State Park or 20 minutes south to the BIRD SANCTUARY in Aripeka, Florida.

A lot to see and do in the area. ENJOY &RELAX.
