  • Exactly as advertised


    The house was clean, quiet and looked exactly like the pictures. It has everything you need and more. It is conveniently located to multiple grocery stores, attractions and restaurants. We had a great time exploring the area and looked forward to coming "home" each evening to relax in the Florida room or on the screened porch. I would stay here again anytime.

  • Super clean, quiet, but old Florida


    So this is a little out there, and in an old Florida neighborhood. It didn't bother us, we are both from Florida and enjoyed the property very much. The home was super clean and inviting, the beds were comfortable, water pressure was good, and everything functioned as it should. We spent most our time exploring the nearby Citrus WMA, but it was the perfect spot to stay. The owner was friendly and communicated well, we never needed anything, so we didn't speak much, but I knew she was there if we needed her.

  • Awesome experince!


    Two words came to mind within an hour of being at the cottage; comfortable and peaceful. You won't be disappointed staying here. Joan and Calvin are excellent hosts and wonderful people. Joan thought of everything and the house is fully equipped. The wildlife viewing is awesome. Highly recommend staying at Laurel! I'm already looking forward to a return trip. :)

  • Beautiful Florida home


    We enjoyed our stay here! It was clean, comfortable and a great size for our family of six. I enjoyed having coffee on the lovely screened porch each morning and watching the water. The beds and other furniture was comfortable and the house was very clean. It was a little off the beaten path but we did make the most of our trip by driving to some of the area attractions. The Villages, Wicki Watchee springs, and Crystal River were all about 50 minutes away (in different directions). We will likely stay here again in the future!

  • Awesome Place to stay, Will Be Back


    The place is Immaculate, Very clean and beds slept well! We loved the outdoor fire pit and the fishing in the canal. Bring your poles for some fresh water fishing. We also enjoyed the closed in patio on back perfect for coffee drinking or playing games. Lots of room to spread out and just chill. We came to ride bikes on the withlacoochee and will be booking again in near future! Don't hesitate to book if you need a place to stay near Flora city or Inverness …you wont be disappointed!!!
