I stayed here two years ago and wrote an excellent review. Last three times I have tried to book, two to three months in advance, I have not been able to get in. Suggest to me they are as good as ever but really have a limited number of cottages. If you want to try them, you need to be... More

My daughter and children (16 yrs and 12 yrs) visited August 3-5, 2014 staying in room #5. They enjoyed every minute and as usual, Lorraine and David were the perfect accommodating hosts. My son and his family arrived on August 7-9, 2014 and stayed in room #6. I can't express how wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable this stay was for everyone. The... More

I highly recommend The Nest. The room was beautiful, loved the continental breakfast, the bedding, how clean it was, everything! I cannot wait to go back with my husband and swim and enjoy the lake and stay in a king bed room.

The hotel has a fantastic location down to Lake Weir, the staff and owner are very friendly, the fridge were stocked with items for breakfast, There's paddleboards and kayaks that you can use free of charge. We'll certainly be back some time.

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

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
