Welcome to Duck Havens Airbnb page!! During the COVID 19 pandemic we are making sure to keep everyone safe by have minimal contact with our guests. We are a small family run working horse farm that also has a small flock of Gulf Coast Native Sheep and Texas Longhorn Cattle. During your stay you will have the opportunity to interact and pet some well behaved animals!! We are located in one of the few hilly areas of Florida, with the Trilby Trails just minutes away.
“When my wife and I planned a trip to Florida, we wanted to include some things and delete others. It was based on our collective ideas for this two-week jaunt including our stay at a working horse farm. It turned out way better than we could have imagined. Why? Because of a woman named Aleta. (We believe the spelling is correct.) She is the matriarch of this working horse farm and we hit it off from the very start. Aleta pointed out things of interest like the fact that a small building once used to store grain was converted to house guests, including my wife and me. It was cozy, very quiet and played a key part to ensure that we had wonderful time. We did! Thank you, Aleta!!”
Wonderful house on the Withlacoochee River, with large deck looking over the river. Just 5 miles off the interstate, it is an hour's drive from Disney, Busch Gardens, and Universal Studios. It's rural, so you may see owls, otters, herons and egrets from the deck, but it is less than 10 minutes from restaurants and a large grocery store.
“Great space for some riverside R & R. Lovely access to the river. Enjoyed coffee in the am, dinner in the pm, out on the deck. The house is well equipped- cold ac & hot shower. Only thing missing were kayaks or a canoe, so bring your own.”
It is a quiet rural area 2 miles from I-75. Exit 293. Lots of biking trails. 35 miles to Tampa, 10 miles from St. Leo University and San Antonio, 8 miles to Dade City. To the north are Homosassa, Weeki Wachee Springs and Crystal River for fishing and boating. There are numerous golf courses in the area. Perfect for a weekend getaway, enjoying nature and relaxing. ***Making sure to disinfect all surfaces and doorknobs in-between guests***
“If you could rate an Air BnB more than 5 ⭐ Jennys Cottage absolutely deserved it! I was playing golf while in the area and my Golf game was a tale of two 9s, one was just horrible and one was amazing! On this same trip I had two Air bnbs and this was the tale of two Air BnBs Jenny's Cottage was amazing! Thoughtful touches, clean and full of amenities! Hopeful to stay there again next time I'm in the area.”
