We had a great week stay. I took my wife for her 40th B-Day and we went fishing and scalloping. Great host they will make your stay enjoyable and stress free. I can not thank them enough for all they did for us. We will definitely be back again. Only issue we had was having to return to real life.

Romantic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Chatming cottage decorated with antiques with backyard sitting on a canal similar to Florida bayou. Perfect for a couple. My hubby was able to fish off the back deck. Canoe kayaks paddle boat available for use. My hubby and I wish we could have stayed longer but will definitely be returning next year. Debra and Dennis couldnt have been more welcome in opening their cottage to us. Surrounding area so much to do. Manatee swim, state park, food delicious (the freezer and biscuit barn). Only about 1 hour to Clearwater we drove to see Dolphin Tale dolphins. Fell in love with the cottage and this area of Florida. Thanks Debra and Dennis for making our weekend getaway so perfect.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely georgeous. They had it decorated beautifully. The yard was fenced in so our dog Molly had the run of her life. The setting was very peaceful, except for the deer flies of course. We enjoyed our stay very much. Our kids came and used the canoe and the pedal boat and had a great time also. We will definitely stay again. Thank you Dennis and Debra for an enjoyable stay.
