Our entire trip with Captain Josh was a delight. He was informative, entertaining, extremely familiar/well-educated with the nature surrounding us, and most impressively patient with the questions posed to him. The tour itself was a delight as well; each member of my family saw exactly what they wanted: rare birds, manatees, gators, and even a resting deer in the woods... More

Our long anticipated stay at this lovely place last weekend was not what we expected. It seems our entire building along the river front was inhabited by a young party set who came to drink, curse, and hang out. It was our family's celebration weekend for our daughter's 40th birthday, but shes and her 3 little sons wound up with... More

We have stayed at this resort and marina a couple of times in the past several years while attending a rowing camp. It is the perfect place to stay with a dock just a minute away. Rowing here is amazing with the Dead River and Blue Springs close by. Rowing with the manatees is a total treat. We styed in... More

Entire hotel is right on the water, slightly off of the lake. Beautiful area and very quiet. State park is right across the water and there is a free ferry, great for just taking in nature. Room was clean with wifi and a full kitchen. Staff was very professional and helpful. Pool was also great!

They also have small apartment type cabins and suites. Hontoon State Park is just across the river and there is a free ferry to take... More

We rented a 24 footer and took ten people for a ride up the St Johns and around Hontoon Island, back for a pit stop, then down river for lunch at... More

It's about 8 miles outside of the downtown area of Deland, FL. Rooms were clean and larger than most hotel rooms. We had a one bedroom "suite". It had a small sitting area as well as the bedroom. Very old tv in the bedroom but a 32" flat screen in the sitting area. There were ample sitting areas outside of... More
