Even though it's an older post, don't want folks to misunderstand. The post titled “Very Disappointing” (pssprinkle) could not have been about HRR, since there is no restaurant, or a front desk per se, (one of front cabins is). Our room was great, (Bait house) basic but just fine, clean. Also peeked in a few of the other rooms and... More

We stayed in the Baithouse which is right on the water... well 15 ft away. Quaint, Rustic ... it is not a Marriott type of room. There is a boat ramp available too. I called ahead so Jeff had the air conditioner turned on and cooling. If you like fat pillows bring your own cause the ones supplied are 'flat'... More

This place is amazing. You wouldn't think it was close to town. It has its own launch ramp for guests. It is so relaxing. The cottages are clean and affordable rates. It's well worth the money. You can even fish off the dock, filet your fish then cook them right up in the kitchen. Nothing better.

Came on a rainy night and the parking lot was flooded. Had to park at the next building and haul luggage. Booked a river view room but room was outdated and worn. Service wasn't great. Probably would not stay again.

We visited Homosassa last year at Christmas and decided to do it again this year. On this trip we had planned to take our dog and this place is pet friendly. So I called to check and see if they had rooms available and the price. I talked to someone, got the information I needed, but wanted to discuss it... More

Stayed in the Bait House the weekend of April 17th. It was our 20th anniversary, and was a wonderful relaxing getaway. Sitting on the porch in the morning, sipping coffee and watching the river traffic was such a delight. Jeff the owner was very accommodating, friendly full of recommendations for local attractions, Captains to take us fishing, or just rides/tours.... More

My family and two other families came from around Florida and stayed there for a week, during the second week of scallop season. We split the A-frame cabin with another family, while the third stayed in their own cabin directly behind the A-frame. The view from the porch of the A-frame is spectacular. probably very similar to what it looked... More

We visited on a Saturday during the annual Copia Tournament. We were on a road trip and only there for 1 night, which is actually all we could have tolerated any way. I did not have high expectations since I knew it was basically a fishing camp, but from the descriptions of the hotel rooms, I did expect clean and... More

we spent the day crabbing off the dock and enjoying the owner and his friends company - made us feel welcomed and at home right away - basically a fish camp so nothing fancy - clean but if a little rust on the refrigerator bothers you look elsewhere - if you like to hang out on the river and fish...
