My wife and I stayed over night a few nights ago and loved our stay. They were nice enough to upgrade us to the #6 room since no one had that room and it is by far the nicest. Rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. We came in on the heels of a storm and the only bad thing... More

Alex checked us in to room # 4 and we were thrilled right away with wonderful decor and comfortable feel. We enjoyed breakfast every am on our little prch area in the... More

Peaceful get away, perfect room and great owners that take personal care of your needs. We fell in love with this place and will recommend this to our friends and family. Will book another weekend-er soon!

The Nest is just the perfect place to stay. When my family comes to town they look forward to me booking a cottage/room here. The beach, kayaks, twinkle lights at night on the deck, super beautiful and relaxing. Best value and experience. I'm so lucky to have found The Nest when a friend booked their weeding here.

From the gated entrance to the beach on Lake Weir, The Nest is a real treat. We stayed in #5. Living room area, small dining area, small kitchen (refrigerator with healthy foods included), 2 double beds and bath. Very comfortable. Never slept better. Dave & his head of housekeeping were available and very concerned with making our stay pleasant. And... More

Take my advise and plan this trip as a surprise. Give a few hints such as quiet, quaint and romantic. Drive or Keep the directions to yourself and share as you go along..ie ..take I75...it keeps him guessing. Once you arrive at the gate, you will understand. Check in was quick and personable. You'll forget all your cares once you... More

This was the best place we have ever stayed. Very relaxing and quiet. I was able to enjoy a little peaceful moment on the beach all by myself and just listen to the waves crashing. My family came over to see the place & absolutely loved it - we sat outside and had a cocktail & had a nice conversation... More

Would classify The Nest as a boutique motel...very cool!! We were at Lake Weir for a family Christmas gathering and stayed for two nights. Although the Nest is not without faults, there is much to like. David and Lorraine are hands on owners who live on site. They take a personal interest in all aspects. Bed was super comfortable. Unfortunately,... More

My wife and I are avid bikers, and spent time around Lake Weir during the Leesburg Bikefest...just a beautiful spot in the country. The Nest was absolutely spectacular...lake front sitting, nice restaurants close by and centrally located for our riding needs. We will be in room #6 for our second anniversary getaway at the Nest!
