This little retreat/resort is perfect for a weekend getaway. It’s got old Florida charm with various cabins to rent and direct access to the Homosassa River. It’s clean and still maintains its rustic charm. We brought our kayak and enjoyed some paddling and then spent the rest of the time just sitting and enjoying the cabin and the fresh air. We’ll definitely be back!

Stopped by for two nights and ended up liking it so much I stayed for several more. The first cabin was directly on the water, but had to move to a nearby cabin for the remaining days, but it was no problem. Both were very clean. They had basic housewares in the kitchens - more than enough for simple cooking, making eggs, etc. The coffee maker looked like it had been through a war, but it worked ok. Fishing from the dock was great, and when there was enough breeze to keep the no-see-ums away, it was great to just sit by the water and look at stars. Only complaint was that the beds were hospital-gurney-style firm, so if a firm mattress isn't your thing, then look elsewhere. The manager Keith and his family were fantastically friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If one of the cottages right on the water is available, take it - it's worth the extra few bucks

The Homosassa River Retreat was fabulous! Recommended by a friend, I booked a surprise weekend getaway for my boyfriend and the pups. We stayed in the bait house, orange house right on the river. The spot was larger than photos led to look; the spot was spacious and nearly perfect. The bed was hard as a rock and not ideal but you can’t expect five star accommodations at this getaway. You’ve got the necessities but there are so many things to do in the area that hopefully you’re not inside much! We rented a pontoon boat for the day (don’t recommend Homosassa River Marina that’s .3 miles away, terrible boat that didn’t run well that we returned early to then get charged a damage fee 😣) but I def recommend trying another rental or maybe kayaks. We went to Crystal River and Rainbow River (35 min away) for day trips. The retreat is perf for evening relaxing at the dock or around the fire pit. We’ll be back!

My husband & I spent an early 30th Anniversary, Dec. 26th, 11/18/17 3 night stay in Villa 1, room 104, facing the river, had a dock out back, so romantic...! Bath, 1 King, we were able to enjoy peace & quiet time but were able to ride our personal bikes to local areas, for example The Freezer bar, recommended, Lower Level room was just right for us, Homosassa Springs State Wildlife National Park not far, educational, we decided to adopt a manatee to help it rehab it, Grannies restaurant in nearby Crystal River was great for breakfast, have to drive but not far, be patient, lots of people go there once they find this gem of a local favorite.The local Starting Gate breakfast restaurant was closed when we rode our bikes there.No problem-We were able to enjoy covered porch in our suite, make sure you have insect repellent to keep the no seems off you, if you forget, go to the resorts gift shop & buy some, We also found a Dollar Tree nearby by Winn Dixie down the street & it is helpful for those who forgot those necessary items.

They were very accommodating to our large group. We had rooms reserved prior to the hurricane that damage a large number of their rooms. They worked with us and got us all rooms. If you have a group needing a place to stay in this area, look no farther. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Had a great night sleep with no problems. We hope to come here again.
