We have stayed at the Landing four times now and I can't say enough about the ambiance at the resort. I only have to mention two slight negatives in my review, but overall if you're looking for a quiet family getaway, this is the place for you.
Grounds: Beautifully manicured. Their selection and placement of foliage and shrubs make me long to have enough money to hire their landscaper to revamp my yard! All of the cottages are well-maintained on the outside in a really neat "cracker style." It's very Disney-esque.
Things to Do: There is a petting zoo with bunnies and goats, two donkeys in a separate area that are very friendly (bring some fruit or veggies if you want them to approach you with gusto), canoeing, kayaking, bike rentals, a gigantic pool, a fitness center, a hot tub and sauna, shuffleboard, a kids' playground. The list just goes on. There is also a really neat wedding chapel and a gazebo + koi pond behind it if you're thinking of having a wedding there. They have a conference center steps away from the chapel where you can hold your reception and they will provide the food as well (I believe). In all reality, just wandering around the resort is a treat in itself.
FYI: There is a small grocery store in town, Mason's, that is very close to the resort. Also, there are a couple of restaurants, a bank, two bars I believe, and two gas stations (one is at Mason's) in Steinhatchee as well.
Inside of the Cottages: You will find beds, dressers, linens, silverware, some cooking utensils, televisions, toity paper, and the majority of the items you'd expect in a rental house. Bring whatever you think you may need though as not every house is fully stocked (paper towels, roll of tape, scissors, etc.).
The only two cons to me are:
#1 - Twice now we've had issues with the nightly rate and I've had to ask them to explain the difference in price when I booked versus when I checked out. It's merely human error and they have always apologized and promptly fixed the error, but I feel like I have to be on guard now and that annoys me. Bottom line is to get a copy of your receipt when you check out and make sure the price matches what you were quoted.
#2 - Cleanliness in the cottages has been an issue with two of our stays. This last time, we were in one of their older cottages and perhaps that was the issue. It was very dusty and there was mildew on one of the bathroom shower curtains. Yikes. Anyway, we cleaned up as much as we could in anticipation of a party we were having there and I can honestly say that the dirt wasn't so bad that our guests would have noticed it.
Overall, Steinhatchee is a really neat place and the Landing only improves it. Those two gripes of mine are very negligible when compared to what the resort really does afford to us: Quality time with family.
