Testimonials From Guests that stayed at the Cabin in the Woods

Date of Stay: Aug 18, 2017
This cabin is away from it all. Was clean and cozy. Was thrilled it was pet friendly, especially for our large dog. Loved the yard for the dog. Was able to cook and relax after our days of site-seeing. Linens were included which was a plus. TJ was most helpful in answering our questions promptly.The swamp was quite interesting especially at night. Really loved the peace and quiet. Thanks for a great stay. PS Daisy did come visit.

The cabin is old but very clean (clean,dry,& warm) for winter stay. It was about 1 miles on sand roads from main hwy to the cabin. We enjoyed the quiet and having Daisy come and visit us. Dale would walk on the sand roads around cabin and into the National Forest everyday The neighbors were all friendly. Great internet and cable tv-a great quiet get-a- way for snowbirds!

Our family loved the vintage feel of this cabin and the secluded grounds under the shady oaks! We spent a comfortable three nights in the forest retreat. We enjoyed having a fire in the fire pit and grilling suppers which we are at the picnic table. Beautiful surroundings and gracious accommodations. TJ was easy to correspond with and very helpful. We loved it! Hope to return to the little red cabin in the forest!

Date of Stay: Sep 9, 2016 What a great getaway! The house was very cozy, and provided everything for a very comfortable stay.This is a great location for anyone looking to visit the Villages, Ocala, Silver Springs, or Lake Weir. Safe and quiet area, with plenty of beautiful wildlife to make everyday exciting and interesting for my 6 and 4 year old. The wifi and home amenities kept us very comfortable for our month visit, and the children and dogs wanted to stay FOREVER!! We are looking forward to visiting again soon and enjoying more of the Spring areas and the Forest! Thanks for a great visit!

Me and my family had a great time. We enjoyed the view the nature. How quiet it was. No body said a word. And that there was wifi since we didn’t have any service. But overall we had a wonderful time

We really enjoyed our stay in Ocklawaha. This house was very clean and well stocked with everything you may need. It was quiet and peaceful . The neighbors were friendly and we found a few good restaurants. (Gator Joe’s, The Dam). The owner was very accommodating, and made the check in process simple. We are looking forward to staying here again!

Great hideaway nestled in the forest. It is centrally located near hiking, fishing, boating, swimming and snorkeling sites. Our purpose for this stay was for rest and relaxation over the holidays. This worked just fine for us. This cabin is in a quiet and laid back neighborhood. We also were able to entertain out of town family members during our stay. We enjoyed making s’mores around the fire pit with the kids. There also was an abundance of wildlife to enjoy and photograph. The locally grown winter fruits were a real treat. The landlord, T.J., is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Would definitely stay here again.

We booked to get away from the city into the countryside. The cabin was perfect for our needs as a base camp for excursions into the forest. Beds were comfortable and we were even able to watch the football games after a long day of paddling in the nearby springs. The kitchen was sufficient to cook an entire Thanks Giving meal. The dock is a prime location to view the stars. We had a great time.

Once again I stayed in this Tampa house. The property manager TJ did many upgrades this past year which made it even better. Any issues were handled immediately. Pleasant neighborhood to walk through.

Testimonials From Renters

“ was instrumental in us moving comfortably to the Tampa Area from Dallas Texas. I just landed a new teaching job and I needed to move my whole family to this area. We searched for a few weeks for a nice house to live in and most of the classified ads were confusing, or vague. If you were not a local already you might be lost as to where the house was, and if you had not looked for a home in while, you often could not decipher the abbreviations.

With the Homeseekers website, the organization was plain to understand, and each living space was photographed and posted on the site so that you could click on a picture and see what the inside and outside of the house looked like. The photographs were so important to us because we were out of state. We hated to make a decision blind and being able to look at the house was immeasurably important. My kids enjoyed seeing a pool and my wife enjoyed that as well as palm trees growing outside. Overall, I have to admit that the Homeseekers website was irreplaceable in us deciding to move into this very house. Great Work T.J.!!”
