  • We rented the cottage for an entire month and had a great time. Ron and Ann are very welcoming and pleasant people. They were there when you needed them but certainly respected our privacy. The cottage had everything you may possible need; pots, pans, all kinds of utensils, salt/pepper, lots of towels and sheets, cleaning stuff, vacuum cleaner etc. We had some cooler days, but there are 2 electric heaters in the cottage which heat up the place pretty quick. Air conditioning was also working very good and all the rooms had ceiling fans. There are 2 golden retrievers in the back yard. Molly and Marley, very friendly dogs, who only pay attention to you when you're snacking something on the back porch. :) We spent most of our mornings on the back porch overlooking the canal. That was very peaceful, watching all the different birds, turtles and the occasional small fishing boat going by. The direct area is kind of quiet. I think it's mostly older people, retired or snowbirds, living there, what we liked. We had our car to visit neighbor towns and the beautiful springs in the area. The store in Barberville, where they sell all kinds of pottery and huge statues etc. is worth a visit and Deland is not that far, as well as Daytona and Ocala for shopping. Overall we had an awesome time and Ron and Ann's place is certainly recommendable!

  • Wonderful cottage situated on the St. Johns river in a very quaint community. Private deck, extremely clean. Outstanding! Ron and Ann are fabulous hosts and I would recommend it for anyone. I would do it all over again - and may very well do so!

    Candace2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ron and Ann are fabulous hosts that run a lovely cottage overlooking a canal that's on the St Johns River. They were very friendly and helpful hosts who took the time to tell us about the area's attractions and were alot of fun to be around. The cottage itself is spacious, fully stocked and has a Florida room and porch which is very quiet and pleasant to chill out on. The attractions in surrounding areas we enjoyed most were the trails in the woods, the springs and the St Johns River. We wholly recommend you give this place a try, its a slice of Old Florida which not many will get to see and experience. We will definitely be back! Shay and Dory

    Shay2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Private cottage. Everything spotless, quiet, nice view on the canal.

    Donna2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful stay at Ron and Ann's place! They are very warm and welcoming hosts. We found their place comfortable and very clean. The location is a perfect base for exploring the area. We enjoyed the deck right on the water, a well stocked kitchen, pool table, as well as the washer and dryer. We highly recommend!

    Fran2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Ron and Ann are great host. They are very knowledgeable of the area and very hospitable. The cottage is very nice and clean. Would definitely recommend their cottage. Overall experience was amazing!

    Andrew2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What an amazing place to stay. Ron and Ann’s place was only excelled by them. Ron and Ann are a lovely couple who went to every length, above and beyond, to ensure we loved our stay. They gave us so much advise for places to go and things to do and they were really friendly and lovely people. They provide everything that you may need for your stay, from cookware to laundry. The space is perfect, we loved sitting out in the evening over the water and then when it got dark playing a few games of pool. I loved that they had a full kitchen so that I could cook us a few meals during our stay. There was parking on their driveway which is something we always look for on our travels. There is nothing i didn’t love about our stay here. I highly highly recommend a stay here. Thank you both so much!

    Hannah2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The couple is super nice. They had some good advice as to where to go to kill some time. The cottage was very clean and beautiful. 10/10 would recommend

    Studio cottage a block from the St. Johns river in golf cart community. 15 minutes to Juniper/ Alexander and Silver Glen Springs. 45 minutes to Daytona beach and 1.5 hr to Disney. Free use of kyak. Internet Tv via a roku with Cbs, Hulu and more. **No safer place to be than out in the forest where you come in contact with very little other people.We are going the extra mile to sanitize everything. You can swim, fish ,hunt or kayak.We even have a golf cart available for use. Come get away!
    Not fancy smancy:) This is a basic, "low end", no frills cottage/cabin. If your looking for perfection, this place isn't for you.
    Astor is a quiet river town along the St. Johns river. We moved here because of the Springs and we like to swim.There and several within 10-20 minutes from us. If you havent ever seen a spring such as Juniper or Alexander Springs, I think this ought to be on your agenda. :) If you like to kyak, Juniper has a 7 mile run and will pick you up at the end and return ya to the park. We are about 45 mins from Daytona and and Hour and a half from Disney.
  • It was an older cabin but super clean and easy to find. We felt that it was very affordable. It was perfect for our family stay to Florida and will stay again if we are back that way.

    Isaiah2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!

    Niko2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Actually nicer and bigger than the impression you get from the pictures. Was only there one night but I'd stay again.

    Rick2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa and Jeff's place was exactly what we expected. It had everything we needed and was in a good location to go to the springs in the Ocala National Forest. They also had great communication and check-in and check-out was very easy.

    Erin2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • I rated this cabin a Five because it was just as advertised. It is not a villa on the beach but it is a small, clean functional, older cabin with two beds and a pull out couch and a small complete kitchen. There is a full bathroom (tub with a shower) with more hot water than you will ever need. This is a cabin, all in one room & perfect for a single, a couple or a family. Cabin is located in a blue collar fishing/retirement community near the St. John's River and plenty of fishing lakes. It is 20+ miles west of Daytona. There are at least two good local restaurants and a local grocery less than a mile up the main road. There is also an upscale bar/grill/restaurant right on the river. I choose the location because it is close to the Volusa Speedway which hosts 12 days of dirt car sprint and late model racing at the same time as the Daytona 500 speedweek. The hosts were great on communication and check in was easy. Also they helped make sure that I was able to hook up to wireless, the internet and to tv stations. Over all this was a good value and i will be back.

    Scott2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing experience. The space has an intrinsic charm and comfort. The cabin aesthetic is good for the soul. We felt reunited with nature. We were happy with the level of privacy and ease of entrance. Truly satisfied with our choice in this space.

    Joe2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • place was just as advertised located in a rustic neighborhood with close access to water. ideal for kayaking and canoeing. Jeff also clued us into nearby Alexander and juniper areas. the former is great for snorkeling in crystal clear springs. Florida isn't just about beaches!

    Michael2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place was as expected, quaint and perfect for a place to sleep while in Astor. Jeff and Lisa made sure we had everything we needed.

    It is a 2/1 with new tile floors and a screened in porch. Peaceful and lots of nature. Located in the Ocala National Forest a 1/4 mile from the St John's River. Bring your boats and toys, plenty of room to park and breathe. 15 minutes to Juniper/ Alexander and Silver Glen Springs. 45 minutes to Daytona beach and 1.5 hr to Disney. Free use of kyak. Come get away from it all. Going the extra mile to sanitize everything.
    Astor is a peaceful quaint small town located in the Ocala National Forest along the St John's River.
  • Very nice place to stay especially if you have numerous people with you.

    Dylan2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • This home is not a lux 5 star hotel... but it don't claim to be, nor does it charge like one. It was neat and tidy ( I was nervous with no cleaning fee ) and it had everything we needed. Jeff and Lisa are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and happy to help. ASTRONAUT DREAMS is a wonderful place to grab ice cream. (the best ice cream shop EVER! plus it's connected to a smoke shop) DOLLAR GENERAL and the groc store have anything you forgot. The property is close to several springs, the raceway, blackwater inn and st John's river. I read other reviews before going on my trip, just like you, and if you remove the cob from your bum you'll have a fabulous time! I wasn't expecting much given there was NO CLEANING FEE and another long review suggested it was not up to standards... There was clean sheets, clean towels as and plenty of room to relax. Having coffee on the screened in porch each morning was a great way to start each day. We even seen black bears. This is a perfect place to relax and get back to nature....So quiet and definitely NOT the city. We will certainly be back to stay again.

    Sarah2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great quaint spot for if you want to be close to the beautiful springs in northern Florida. This small rural Florida town is over an hour away from both Jacksonville and Orlando. Used the home for a couple getaway but there is more than enough space for 4-6. Jeff and Lisa were very responsive and offered great tips for enjoying the local nature. Wouldn’t suggest this space if you are looking for a fancy home. This is an instance where you certainly get what you paid for.

    Arianna2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great

    Kenneth2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed Jeff and Lisa’s place. It was a decent place to stay after the springs. They were very responsive and let us check in early.

    Briana2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very great spot, highly recommends

    Robb2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great. It had a screened in porch and a nice living room and kitchen area and two bedrooms. Close to Juniper and Silver Glen Springs and surrounded by nature. I enjoyed my stay

    Jennifer2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little house for what we needed, went racing at volusia speedway which was about 15 minutes away, if you stay here you gotta eat at Sparky’s great food for a great value, the hosts own another smaller house in the same driveway that can be rented as well if you need more space for a larger group we slept 6 comfortably in the stilt house

    Astor, FL, United States

    Waterfront paradise in the Ocala National Forest, down a 4 mile dirt road. Located on Beautiful Lake George at the mouth of the St. Johns River, a romantic getaway for two or fun small family water vacation. Adjacent to boat ramp. Close to 5 Florida Springs. Mother-in-law apartment. Quiet, small neighborhood far from the noise of the city but close enough to anything you need. A nature lovers delight! Birdwatching, kayaking, fishing, canoeing, relaxing or sightseeing, hiking and Amazing sunsets!
    The house is located on Lake George, the second largest lake in Florida and is surrounded by trees and water. We are in a small neighborhood but when you look out across the lake, there is not another house in sight. The sunsets are amazing. The quiet is unbelievable. The stars at night a brilliant. It is a beautiful, relaxing slice of paradise and the perfect retreat.
    Central Florida and the Ocala National Forest is a sanctuary from the noise and busyness of life. We live at the end of a 4 mile dirt road in a small neighborhood of about 10 houses. The neighbors are quiet and keep to themselves but friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. Several of them are air boaters so there will be airboat noise from time to time. There is usually a rooster crowing to grace our morning but the quiet is peaceful, the views are beautiful. We have a dock where you can put in to kayak or canoe and there is a boat launch adjacent to the property. The back yard is Lake George!
  • Very well decorated, good for people that want to get away from city. Loved loved loved that Jim and Sarah provided 2 kayaks for the adventure in the lake. Had a great time would say if your traveling with baby definitely consider bringing a portable chair as I found it a little hard to feed my son. I'm sure if you tell Sarah and Jim they'll make sure to help your stay be as comfortable and breezy as possible. Quick response and beautiful place.

    Jessica2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet slice of heaven in florida. Get away from the ordinary and try this place in a breathtaking setting right on the water . Cozy and inviting . Highly recommend staying at Jim and Sarah's place . They were very friendly and the entire experience was extremely pleasant. 5 stars all around

    Daniel2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • My stay here was awesome. Jim and Sarah have a great home on the lake! The view of the lake is outstanding and the sound of the water is so peaceful. Plus I saw so many neat wildlife that I don't get to see in NY. They even left out books where I could read about what I was looking at, which I thought was a nice touch. Jim and Sarah were so easy to communicate with and genuinely great people that love the area. They recommended a few restaurants that were fantastic local places. I also worked there via internet connection and everything worked just fine with that. The space was clean and in good shape. I have nothing but good things to say about this stay and hope to return again in the future.

    Chad2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • There aren’t even enough words to describe how wonderful this place is. It’s a beautiful space with amazing views, has everything you could need for a short or long-term stay (we stayed 5 weeks!), and plenty to keep you busy. The lake is serene and beautiful, and you could easily spend all of your time right there, but there is also a lot of natural beauty to enjoy at several parks and springs nearby. And Astor is a sweet little community and everyone was very nice. Jim and Sarah are amazing hosts and have loads of wonderful ideas and you will never get bored! They also happen to be two of the most kind-hearted, wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in my life. If you book this spot, I think your worst-case scenario is a peaceful stay in a beautiful spot, and best-case is that you have those things and end up leaving with family you never knew you had!! I can’t recommend this place enough!

    A little bit of Old Florida - stay in this quirky cottage on the edge of Ocala National Forest with its beautiful clear springs! Set in an acre of land away from the crowds, with plenty of room to bring your toys, you're all set for adventures - St. John's River boating, kayaking in Juniper Springs, skydiving in Deland, hiking- who needs Disney? The cottage has gorgeous outdoor deck& patio, grill ready for you! Bring Fido for free! Important: PLEASE UPLOAD GOV. I.D BEFORE REQUESTING TO BOOK!
    Update:This is a perfect bug-out place to escape a town or city and to spend time in nature. We are meticulously undertaking deep cleaning and disinfection after each stay. This takes a lot longer than usual and means we cannot offer early check ins at this time. Please bear with us if we are taking our time getting it perfect for you! Enjoy your own home from home, with heaps of space to grill, relax and soak up the sun. New for 2020, fully fenced yard. The cottage is in a small quiet area within walking distance of the river and includes free use of the residents' boat ramp which leads onto beautiful Blue Creek (see photos). There you will encounter bald eagles, manatee, gators, ospreys, and more. Largemouth bass, crappie, bluegills, shellcrackers and catfish are the highlights. But redfish, snook, flounder, striped bass and warmouth are also present in the river and its lakes. If Kayaking is your thing, then nearby Juniper Springs Run is just gorgeous. The home has a fully equipped kitchen, including dishwasher. The fridge/freezer is small but guests staying longer than 7 nights can have access to a full-size fridge/freezer and laundry facilities on site. The sofa bed in the living room is suitable for two extra guests so the maximum is four which would include children. Only guests named on the booking are permitted to occupy. (If you are booking for two people please be aware that we only supply linen for the full bed. ) We request guests to please uploaded government-issued I.D plus recent selfie. We also do not accommodate smokers - we strictly enforce no smoking ANYWHERE on our property, both inside and out. We will retain the full deposit in the event of any person smoking. PET POLICY: We do allow 1 small dog ( under 35lbs) but no cats, sorry. The yard is now fully fenced however we make no warranty that it is escape proof! We advise owners to make their own checks and not to leave pooch unattended outside, not least because we have a lot of wildlife. Owners must PICK UP after their dog, keep their fur-baby off the furniture at all times. This means crating pooch when leaving unattended. This is because our furniture doubles as sleeping space. Unlike most places, we don't charge a dime for your four-legged best friend; most owners are respectful of our policy, so it has not been necessary. But in the rare event that we do have to pick up after your dog or clean dog hairs from the furniture, an additional cleaning fee of $75 will be charged. Thank you for taking the time to check out our cottage, stay safe and hope to see y'all soon!
    . Astor Forest Campground is on the edge of the beautiful Ocala National forest. The springs are close by, Silver Glen Sorings and Juniper are only 10 mins away. It is a community where most residents are seniors and most homes are vacation homes or mobile homes. This is a place to relax in nature, not really a vibrant scene or somewhere to party. You will need a vehicle. But there are five restaurants, three of which are excellent, two grocery stores, two gas stations. Daytona Beach, Flagler and Ormond Beach are about 40-50 mins away, Deland with its beautiful downtown and Fri night market is are around 30 mins away.
  • Such a cute little spot… I really enjoyed my stay here.

    Carol2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and nicely renovated cottage. Owners are very responsive and provided a lot of great tips. Highly recommend.

    Josephine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very cute cottage for two maybe three people. Very clean and neat. You will not find any better host Cher & Tony. Has all the amenities that you need. Very quiet neighborhood. We loved it.

    Glen2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • You will find a lovely little cottage with a history of its own. It's very cozy and quiet. The hosts are most accommodating and checked in several times to see how my stay was going. Luckily they do accept a pet (responsible pet owner of course!). The fenced yard is a bonus. I've love to stay again!

    Pat2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice cottage, very clean, great host, perfect for two people looking for a reasonable price for a vacation.

    Glen2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you desire a getaway in the sunny southlands, and prefer to move a bit away from another suburbia, this cottage could be your answer. Astor is a small community within a few miles of natural attractions best experienced with walking shoes, bicycles, and small boats. If you like to walk or bike, check out the state park just east across the St. John's River both north and south of route 40. If you are a moderately skilled paddler, the Juniper Run 7.5 miles of spring water is hard to beat as a kayak trail. We found Sparky's to be a friendly source of good food in generous portions and at reasonable prices.

    Harold2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

    Becca2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second time at this place. Everything was great. The cottage is so cozy, full of little touches that make your stay wonderful. Location is excellent if you love nature. Char is a true super host. Thank you again.

  • We're so glad we found Runaway Bay Lodge. It made for the perfect spot to get away from it all and to enjoy our 31st wedding anniversary surrounded by tranquility in a laid back, unpretentious atmosphere. 3 nights were not enough. We're definitely coming back. You'll enjoy serene sunsets over the lake to the sound of gentle waves lapping at the seawall, and walks on the trails just minutes away in the Lake George Conservation Area. Kennedy and Christine are great hosts, thoughtful and thorough. The property is cozy and rustic with a laid back islander feel. This is truly a one of a kind slice of heaven!

    Our home is spacious in all the right places. Cozy with a Lodge feel, plenty of yard space to hang out and relax, and nestled within the Ocala National Forest. 3 Natural Springs, Volusia Speedway, and the St. Johns River, are 5-15 mins away. 20-45 is Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, and Silver Springs Park. Whether you Go fishing, swim with manatees at Silver Glenn, kayaking, hiking, or race around the track, we are sure you will find adventure waiting . Astor also has great dining choices.
    We have two Queen Beds in the Bedrooms, and a Queen Sleeper sofa with sheets in the credenza below the TV. We have internet, and smart TV to log into your own Netflix or Hulu accounts or watch DVD's on the Blue Ray machines in each room. We hope you enjoy the company you are with and getting away from all the cable tv / hustle and bustle. There are also games available to play. We start you off with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, i.e. laundry pods, paper towels, toilet paper, you will have to buy any additional toiletries, as these are just to get you started. There are bath towels, and linens, and fully stocked kitchen, feel free to add to our collection of things.
    Astor is a small town feel, ironically everyone knows our neighbor crossed the street, Sammy. Astor has a Grocery store, ice cream shop, Dollar General, Ace Hardware, and a few great restaurants. On the weekends Linda's Antique Mall is open and theres always something fun to find. Music can be found sometimes at Castaway's and The Black Water in upstairs. Sparkey's is great home town cooking and you feel like you belong. There are boat tours out of the Black Water Inn you should defintely check out. Sunsets are great most anywhere on the river. Be aware Black Bears are in the area, and We LOVE when we are blessed to see one. Just be careful and keep your distance.
  • Very nice place to stay at. A lot of decorations that make the place very cozy to stay at!

    My place is close to Daytona Beach,Daytona Beach International Speedway and 1.5 Hrs to Walt Disney, Orlando. Ponce DeLeon Springs with Pancake house, Alexander Springs, Silver Glen Springs and minutes from the finest freshwater fishing in Florida! Public boat ramp within 1 mile of cabin. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Great place for writers that need a quiet place. Close to nature and wildlife.
  • Shane and Kathy's cabin is perfect! We were secluded, but a short drive from some great places for adventures. Lake George, Blue Springs, Deleon Spribgs, and Woodruff National Park were some if the places we visited. Ormond beach is only about 40 minutes away and worth a trip. The cabin is clean, has comfortable beds, and has good spaces for relaxing. We hope to return!

    Wendy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had another wonderful stay here! Such a peaceful, quiet area and a cozy cabin with great amenities. The hosts are excellent and easily available if you need to reach them. Highly recommend this place!

  • If you’re looking for a relaxing and tranquil escape, we would highly recommend ‘Cabin in the Woods’. The space offers everything you need. We happened to be there in super bowl Sunday and the TV room was perfect for it! The cabin is clean, cozy, and offers all of the amenities you could need. The fire pit and grill outside were such an added bonus! You are surrounded by nature. There are so many outdoorsy activities as well! There are several local parks close by and an old sugar mill where you can make your own pancakes. Great location and great stay! We will def be back again!

The hosts were kind and accommodating and easy to reach when needed. The neighbors were also very friendly. The amenities were great - the bed was extremely comfortable and the full size dining room table was great for meals or working on the computer. Overall a great value!

    Robert2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at the cabin. Rustic yet upgraded with plenty to do there and nearby. My husband and son fished the river and canal when we were home and we spent three days exploring many nearby fresh water springs during the day. It's a charming place with nicely kept yard and natural areas. Boat traffic on the river was heavy on the weekend so we couldn't kayak from there. Otherwise, perfect spot for water activities!

    Cozy, newly renovated cracker cottage 2 blocks from De Leon Springs State Park. Close to Deland. Pet Friendly!
    Grace has a metal roof, jalousie windows, a wood-fired stove, a front deck with rails wide enough to sit on, a swinging bed on the sunny, enclosed front porch, windows placed for cross-ventilation, a back deck and a sizable fenced backyard (safe for children and pets) with native flora. A train runs on the railroad track just behind Grace. The setting and cottage is owned by an artist and makes a perfect creative retreat for artists, writers and musicians. Grace's modern amenities include cable TV, Internet, fans in each room and a window AC/heating unit in the living room. Nearby De Leon Springs State Park is a 625-acre park that is home to a spring which feeds the Spring Garden Run, producing 19 million gallons of water a day at 72 degrees year-round. Visitors can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, bird watching, picnicking, fishing (a Florida freshwater fishing license is required) or hiking the 4.2-mile Wild Persimmon Trail or the half-mile paved Nature Trail. Canoes, paddleboats and kayaks are available for rent. The park’s paddling trail provides access to the 22,000-acre Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge, where adventurers can explore lakes, creeks and marshes. Visitors who take the 50-minute boat tour through the Lake Woodruff refuge will likely see alligators and numerous birds. Chuck Lennon Park is also very close by and offers sports courts. Grace Cottage is only 7 miles from Deland which is the home of Stetson University. Deland features interesting art and music venues as well as a variety of restaurants.
  • Grace is a great place to escape! It has a back yard for pups and a nice, cozy, art centered atmosphere inside. If you’re looking for somewhere that’s close to a lot of springs and parks, this is it; the occasional train that comes through probably won’t even bother you because you’re so eager to get up early to enjoy your day and so tired after that you sleep like a baby. St. Augustine is only about 1.5 hours away as well if you want a cool place to do a day trip or night out. Rachel was a great host; check in/check out was easy and she even provided us some extra cooking items since we were there for Thanksgiving.

    Andi2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

The large fenced back yard was a great place for our puppy to run. And the large spacious front porch was a great place for us to relax with a glass of wine.

    Joe2018-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Runaway Bay is basically a little drinking village, with a fishing problem - After the 4 mile trip through The Lake George Forest, you will pass the small campground community of Pine Island. From this point on most of the vehicles you will see are golf carts & boats. About 1/4 mile after you pass the entrance to Pine Island (on the left), you will come to a small boat ramp/marina & RV Campground called Mary's Pine Island Resort. Our property is on the other side of the fence, just past the RV Campground. The area is small and, outside of the RV campground, there are only about 30 permanent houses, in the neighborhood.
  • MMMmmm my favorite place in the world. This was my second trip to Runaway Bay and its so much better than I remember it. Kennedy and Christina are so very talented in they hosting skills. They provided me with a place I was able to connect with an old friend, create new memories, and get away from the city life. I couldn't have asked for anything to be different unless I asked for more time at Runaway bay. I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who enjoys watching the stars shoot across the night sky, exploring interesting tiny towns with yummy food, or just loosing cell service and enjoying the quiet.

  • I have stayed in quite a few AirBnbs and hotels but I’ve never had a stay like this before! The moment you pull up to the property, you feel warm and welcomed. My girlfriend and I were here for our anniversary and I opted to have champagne, candles, flowers and chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival. The setup for this was so beautiful! There was a greeting with our names with champagne on ice when you walked in, soothing music, one of the most beautiful bouquets in the living room and strawberries and rose petals in the bedroom. It was literally the most romantic thing I’ve ever seen. Then, there’s just this picture perfect view of the lake no matter what part of the house you’re at with this beautiful long dock. Curled up in that comfy bed waking up with that view was amazing. You walk right out of your bedroom outside and you can sit and enjoy you coffee and watch the fish jumping. Good coffee maker and plenty of pans and dishes to use! We spent a lot of time there because with the tiki bar they have with a sweet pool table and being able to make food we didn’t really want to leave. LOVE the outdoor shower! The indoor shower was wonderful, too! There’s just so much peace and good vibes there. Every little touch of decoration goes so well and reminds you to relax, breathe and just enjoy yourself and your surroundings. Vacation here. You will not regret it. We’ll be back as much as we can.

  • This was a beautiful retreat and exactly what I needed to let my hair down... it was perfect. The folder for the cottage to explain everything wifi, etc was non existent. Not a problem though as I found the wifi and password on my app and as for everything else it was really easy to figure things out. The light switches for the outside area are very hard to find and we eventually gave up. But the automated lights did well and provided enough light for entertainment. It was a great place to just be surrounded by tranquility and nature and the cottage was immaculate. Very warm home and cosy to the smallest detail. Feels like a family home and you will feel right at home without a doubt. Overall 5 stars🙏🌅

  • My boyfriend, our lab, and I came for one night to escape the city for the nigh. We had such a great time looking at the water and enjoying each other’s company. The house was so cute at night I did a little photo shoot of it and posted it on my Instagram. The host, Kennedy, was really generous and let’s personalizes touches that made us feel welcomed. Next time I’m bringing food to grill out and our Jon boat!

    Tori2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

  • Staying at Pam’s was perfect for an after-Thanksgiving family get together. We fished in the canal behind the house, brought a canoe and paddled up the river, and visited Alexander Springs. We cooked all of our meals and found the kitchen very well equipped.

    Justin2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Pam was amazing y’all! I’m going to let you know, I’m a super picky person but this place was amazing. It’s not a big bad mansion, but it is super spacious for a 3 bedroom house! You want a good master bedroom and an amazing hostess, this house has it! Pam answered every little question I had. I wouldn’t have changed a thing other than having more time there!

We will definitely recommend this home and be back in the future🙂 If you are looking for a water vacation close to all the spots by boat or ski, this is the place!

    Jessie2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location for an old Florida experience. Directly on the St John’s, this older home was a great bargain and perfect for exploring the area. Either bring your boat, or rent one (Pontoons from castaway’s 5 min away were awesome) and cruise blue creek and visit Silver Glen Spring. Easy drive to some other springs in the area, or just relax while watching life go by on the river.

    Jay2019-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Words cannot express my stay at Denise’s riverhouse. The house is warm and welcoming, with pretty much everything you’ll need to enjoy your stay. The house has lots of space. And the views of the river are spectacular. Can’t beat going outside in the morning, and taking in the crash morning air and peacefulness is the area. I WILL be coming back here, and bringing a boat along to take advantage is the dock and GREAT location!

  • We spent NYE 2010 here. We had a large group of 12 with kids and adults in the mix. We loved our stay here as it was exactly what we were looking for...A getaway with a house on the lake with peaceful and quiet surroundings. The kayaks given were an awesome treat as well. We enjoyed Ziplining at the canyons, rented a pontoon boat to the springs and ate a lot of local seafood and Gator (YEAH BABY!). It is a great house to host a lot of ppl and the way everything is laid out it still maintains privacy for all parties.

    Lanash2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had an extended family post Christmas get away here. We liked the ability to be close together yet have separate units for each family group. This location is great for boat access, kayaking, large yard for games, fire pit, etc. We would definitely use this location again.

  • This place is AMAZING

    Adriana2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa’s place is awesome! We came with a group of kids who LOVED every second fishing for Catfish off the beautiful dock. And some big ones the caught indeed. The house itself is super clean and fit all us comfortably. The surrounding property is beautiful surrounded by huge oak trees and Spanish moss. When you wake up in the morning the wild turkeys and sand hill cranes can be seen wandering the yard. The host are very welcoming and quick to answer any questions. (Ask if you can watch them feed the hawks. Really cool experience). I wish I could rate ten stars because we really enjoyed it that much! Our only regret was not booking another couple days.

For a historical experience, take a day trip to the oldest city in the U.S., St. Augustine, where you can visit the Castillo de San Marcos, a 17th-century Spanish stone fortress with magnificent views of the St. Augustine Inlet. In St. Augustine, you can also visit Anastasia State Park, a protected wildlife sanctuary, or the beautiful St. Augustine Beach and Crescent Beach! Other nearby cities with entertainment and activities for all include Alexander Springs, Deleon Springs, and Crescent City, all just a 30-minute drive from the house.
  • Our family had a great stay at this lake house. We were looking for a place in nature as an antidote to Orlando’s suburban sprawl and the theme parks. This place exceeded our expectations! It’s on a quiet and truly beautiful lake. Canoeing among the bald cypress trees was a highlight. The house is equipped with functional, and well worn, canoes and fishing gear. The hot tub was great, the linens were comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed, and we loved the card table and game area. If we come back to this area, we’ll definitely try to stay here.

  • The place is Amazing! Just in front of a lake! The house is so authentic and so like you imagine planning a trip to Ocala I love it! There are many parcs to visit around! I forgot a ring after my check out and the host had been very helpful to get it back. Thank you very much

    "RIVER BEND LODGE"is a private lodge where your family/group occupy the entire home, boat bunkhouse/ gameroom. It is the Jewel of the St John's River. Its is a spectacular river front custom-built home designed to entertain and relax with your family/group. The very open floor plan features an incredible island kitchen that opens directly into the sprawling great room with full stone fireplace under vaulted ceilings with beautiful solid wood beams for those cool nights.
  • It’s a big house with a great set up. Lots of space for kids to run around and they won’t bother as much. The decor is a little dated but fits fine. We stayed with 5 adults and 5 kids. Everyone had a bed, their own space, when someone needed more space, it was there. It’s a very small town without much to do. The food markets don’t have a great selection, so bring any specialized foods you will want OR be prepared to drive a bit to a full sized supermarket. Mark, our host, was available for communication before, during, and even after as my wife left some jewelry. Overall it was a perfect house for our family trip!

  • Mark, Is the owner of the house he made sure everything was in order I had no problems getting into the house. The owner made it very easy for us to navigate through the entire house. The Few questions I had he responded within 15 minutes. I definitely would recommend staying here this place is great we had a blast. 😎🙌🏼🤙🏼

  • beautiful, peaceful, and serene! those are the three best words to describe the setting at our site. we got in late (after dark) and the campground host nathan couldn't have been more patient and helpful! he made sure we got in our site where we wanted, assisted us in getting level and setup. the next morning we woke to the sound of wild turkeys calling nearby, stepped outside to enjoy our morning coffee and saw the sun coming up through the trees. we quickly realized we were on a farm! goats, donkeys, and horses to name a few, made our stay even more special. the rv site we stayed in had 30 amp electric and potable water. nestled under mature oaks, and away from the rest of grounds gave us a sense of being alone out there. though the site itself could use some hard packed gravel and a good leveling, nathan offered some bricks to remedy the leveling of our 36ft travel trailer, and we used our outdoor rug to help keep the sand out of the rv. we were supposed to have friends stay with us and boy did they miss out! such a very special place and cant wait to come back!

    A secluded romantic getaway in Florida's Ocala National Forest. This cottage is situated on a privately owned property on a beautiful canal one turn off the St. John’s River, surrounded by Florida's Ocala National Forest. It's the perfect retreat! You will find miles of hiking, off road vehicle and horse trails in the forest. Trophy bass fishing in our many lakes or the nearby St. Johns River, and hunting for deer and wild turkey in season, are close at hand. So... bring your easel, camera, binoculars and boat and join us for a truly unique getaway experience and see what Florida was like in years past. Come spend a weekend or a week with us. Whatever your indulgence, your comfort and privacy is our main concern.
    Astor is a quiet, friendly, boating, fishing, retirement community, that is often referred to as the Hidden Gem of the St. Johns. There are a number of very good restaurants nearby and of course the mystical Silver Glen Springs are located just a short boat ride, north.

  • First, let me start by saying this place was truly amazing and that is because of the wonderful owners. Moreover, when I started looking for a house I was not really sure on even what area we were going to stay in and this was partically

    Lindsey2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, had a great stay. Love the ice maker!! :)

    Alicia2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • When my high school classmates from the Class of 1977 approached me about finding comfortable accomadations on the St Johns River for a weekend reunion, I was fortunate to find Rob's house in Astor Florida. Its central location, and outstanding amenities made for a very special time for old friends to gather, travel the river, and enjoy a couple of great local restaurants like the Blackwater Inn. Rob was attentive to our needs and was always a phone call away if we needed anything. I highly recommend Rob's place in Astor to anyone looking for a true natural Central Florida river experience.

    Jeffrey2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house was in top shape. Very clean, and everything worked as it should. The next time I'm in Astor, I'll be staying at this house again.

  • This place was fantastic. Four of us stayed for Daytona bike week. Big open living room, nice kitchen, nice bathrooms etc. The bass stocked pond and the farm animals were a cool addition too. This place is back in the woods a bit off of rt40, and right around the corner from a gas station. We would fuel up in the morning and get right on 40 straight to Daytona. Cathy is very hospitable and just a text away if you need anything. This place is a great value for the money, and I definitely plan on booking it again if we take another trip to that area.
