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!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Nest in September, and it was exactly what we needed. After reading reviews, I had to book Room #6, the only room with a private porch. This was definitely the best pick for us! I spent the majority of our time lounging and reading on that porch, and I wish we... More

My husband and I and our two girls stayed at The Nest this weekend. We had rooms 3 and 4, which were adjoining. It was nice to have the extra room. That setup was great for our family. We enjoyed using the kayaks while visiting and playing in the sand. The fire by the lake in the evening was nice... More

We spent 3 nights in room 3 a week ago. The owners are very friendly and nice. The property is very quiet and nice. The room was beautiful and clean. We definitely enjoyed mornings at the beach on the lake. There are beach loungers, umbrellas, and beach towels provided. The fire pit was beautiful at night. There is bug spray... More
