Our stay was wonderful. Staff was friendly, room was very clean, and there was so much to do.

What a pleasant place. Room great, food good, rented a pontoon and the river is beautiful. I will come. Again!

Everything about our stay was great. They first accommodated our late check in. Danny at the front desk was very friendly. The breakfast at the on-site deli was perfect. Very affordable, chef was very friendly, and we sat on the dock each morning and enjoyed or meal. Room was clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying here again.

Great customer service. Reminds us of a quaint Maine inn.

I loved being on the water and keeping the boat in the boat house easy acc. The first time staying in a cottage. You cant see the veiw there.not far just not look out the window of the rental

Friendly Mom and Pop resort overlooking the St. John's River, adjacent to Hontoon State Park. Boat tours available or rent your own pontoon boat. Guests can dock their own boat here for free or stop for lunch at their onsite deli/restaurant. Our hotel room was spacious and clean, but not fancy. We had a kitchen and shared balcony overlooking the river. Noise from other rooms is easily heard. No elevator in our building. Swimming Pool onsite and lots of cable channels in case you get a rainy day.

Everything from parking to staff to room was great.

The river is beautiful. The birding is excellent. The two hour boat tour of the river is just right--reasonable, informative, with lots of birds and alligators to see. The rooms are fairly basic, but comfortable. The staff members are exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is obviously a well-loved and meticulously cared for place. The restaurant is good, and important to have there. The state park almost next door is also a pleasure to visit. This is a very peaceful, tranquil place--definitely Old Florida.

not sure why so many great reviews, the reason why I booked there... room was small and dark; barely any sound proofing so you can hear neighbor's conversations and are very clear on what they're saying; if the room next door has kitchen, you'll be smelling their dinner and the cooking fumes like an exhaust; shower barely had any pressure... although at a scenic and serene location, boat traffic, boats docked, and their fumes destroyed it

Air Conditioner could not keep up with the temps outside. Was usually about 80 in my room. Had to leave early because of an emergency and they would not refund the money I paid. In 40 years I've never had a problem getting money back. I guess they are afraid people won't like the place and leave to have such a policy.

Convenient location for us, but still out-of-the commotion. Peaceful, scenic setting made it a great vacation spot. Want to return to do more - like rent a pontoon boat & try some fishing. This setting is ideal for a group wanting to meet here and relax!

Great relaxing time. Quiet, comfortable, homey. My daughter loved it so much she got a job working in the cafe! When you visit be sure to stop by the cafe and say hi to Jennifer!

Don't understand why they needed $10 more for third guest but I guess that's a common practice. Otherwise very pleased with this hotel
