This place was perfect. We rented several units out with some friends and every one was filled with amazing character and a touch of home.

We booked the room with the screened in porch and even on the day that it rained all day we completely loved every minute of our vacation. Kayaks to use during the day. Beach chairs on the sand and a fire pit for the evening. We are... More

Perfect for some rest and relaxation! Rooms are beautiful and the lake is tranquil place to destress. Ideal for a weekend getaway for people living in Tampa or Orlando. The staff was very accomodating. Highly recommend eating at Eatons Beach Restaurant while you are in town.

We had a Celebration of Life gathering at this facility catered spending two days reminiscing, sitting by a beach fire, chasing children and releasing paper lanterns. This is a five star facility with attention to every detail and non-boring embellishments. Relax and enjoy bliss.
