Friendly staff and nice furnishings. We have stayed in an apartment and in two different rooms. Love the facility and the location on the St. John's river. Boats are available for rent. Take the Blue Her on your that leaves from Hontoon.

Nicely landscaped grounds and very clean accommodations. The room description said ours had a full kitchen which through my travels I've discovered can mean anything from a microwave to a real full kitchen. This one had the latter - a real fill kitchen with oven, cooktop, microwave, full size refrigerator/ freezer and sink. Pots and pans, dishes and utensils were...

We were in Deland for our grandson's birthday. Unfortunately, we did not book our first night here. We arrived at the hotel very early and ask for an early check-in. The staff was great and as soon as the room was ready we checked in. The clerk also gave us a map and recommended several places nearby to go while...

What an awesome place right on the water. Staff was very friendly and the room was super clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back soon. We highly recommend this place for a short to extended stay. The room we were in had all the amenities.

Positive: clean rooms, friendly people, quite, great location. Negative: Noisy AC. No AC for kitchen or bathroom so the whole room was warm. Second hand smoke when sitting on the balcony. View from room was of drunk people on their houseboat.

We loved this resort tucked away on the lake/river. We stayed here while visiting my daughter who is a student at Stetson University. This place is quiet and secluded but only a short drive from downtown Deland. Our room was spacious, with a full kitchen and was clean and had a beautiful view of the water.

Very nice people. Very well maintained grounds and pool. Easy access to Hontoon Island Park. Easy acces by boat on St. John river. Will be back this winter. Rooms were clean, but a little dated. Better than staying in non air conditioned cabin in August on Hontoon Island state park. Go back in time and enjoy a little getaway.
