  • 40th wedding anniversary


    40th wedding anniversaryWe were originally scheduled to visit Punta Gorda, Florida but the hurricane changed those plans. Our stay at bumblebee cottage was very cozy and relaxing. The only problem we had was a power surge on the day before we were supposed to leave. The surge took out the whale and we had no water for the last day and a half of our stay. Other than that, our stay was wonderful!

  • Cute little cottage away from it all


    We had a great stay at the bumblebee cottage! It was a perfect little getaway for our family. Loved that we could bring our pup with us, she’s small so it was the perfect little yard for her. It’s definitely away from all the hustle and bustle so that was nice to just have peace and quiet. It was a drive wherever we went but we expected that. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Bumblebee Cabin


    We had an amazing stay at the Bumblebee Cabin. The property was exactly as pictured. This is probably one of the most “stocked” VRBOs we have ever stayed at. Anything we needed the cabin had, which made our stay much more enjoyable! Thank you to the owners for opening up their home to us!
