Arrived on a Friday evening and stayed thru Sunday morning. Rained almost entire time but made the best of it. Hotel staff all very friendly. Room 17 is bottom floor nice and roomy but heard the ppl above us every time they walked around. Bed is a little too firm but bathroom was nicely updated. Rented a bass boat for... 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!

We had lunch at, Shady Oaks and dinner at, German restaurant, Emmy's Time Out Tavern. The locals were great, along with the staff everywhere... More

We have been staying here for years. We have sent many friends and family and they all love it too. The rooms are nice and clean and you can get a kitchen with most rooms. 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

It was great to find this gem ! Rooms were comfortable and large and clean. Property is well maintained. There is a nice fleet of well kept pontoon boats. 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

Hontoon Landing has everything you would wish for to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We brought the family for a weekend getaway and then my husband and I took advantage of the extra night special and stayed in the Captain's suite. It was better than a 5 star hotel. The room was imaculate and the staff... More

Laid back comfort. Natural beauty. Hontoon Landing grabbed us at first sight. Lovingly maintained property has Old Florida ambiance right on the St John's River. Birds, gators, manatee viewing from one of the many decks and tables around the property. Nice pool. Steps to the Hontoon Island State Park ferry, where we rented kayaks and walked the trails. We had... More

Wonderful boat trip on a remote part of St Johns River. Beautiful scenery, lots of birds, alligators, and a very knowledgable and personable tour guide. Great ride and a great value. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Scenic drive from Orlando. Allow enough time as the drive takes longer than one would think
