The cottage is a simple, quaint little place; very well maintained, and in a very
peaceful rural location on a horse farm. The owner Jean was friendly and helpful.

“Charmingly Quaint Cottage”

I enjoyed my stay at this cottage, which is situated on a ranch, surrounded by neighboring ranches - plenty of horses and livestock on hundreds acres of beautiful green pastures. The cottage is roomy and clean. The owner keeps up with correspondence and stays in touch when needed (I never had any problems with communications) - but also provides optimal privacy during the stay. This is a very nice, well-kept place that's worth the value. I HIGHLY recommend and will rent again on my return journeys to Florida.

“Wonderful Retreat!!!”

My husband and I just visited the area and stayed at the cottage. We were very glad we decided on staying there. Jean maintains her property beautifully. The horses are an amazing bonus to the peaceful retreat. We very much enjoyed everything. The cottage was very reasonably sized, very clean, organized we had all the basic necessities available to us as listed on the site. We basically just brought the food and personal stuff since everything else was inclusive. We also had no problem with Wi-Fi or any connections. We also had TV and reception at all times. We loved walking around and enjoying the horses, the property and everything else the area has available. Jean was a wonderful host to our get away weekend. We loved every minute of our long weekend. Will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends, as well as would love to go back. Thanks Jean.... We had a wonderful time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the cottage. We were busy all day taking in the sights and sounds of Stetson, DeLand and the entire area. This quiet cozy cottage on the horse farm was a great home base and offered a wonderful nights rest. Highly recommend and we look forward to going back.

“Terrific way to enjoy Florida”

What a wonderful way to visit Florida!!! The "tourist" Florida was within 10 minutes and the peaceful quiet of Jean's darling cottage was a terrific way to enjoy the "quiet" Florida after a day at Daytona Beach. This has to be one of the best kept secrets in the DeLand area! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
The Horse Ranch is beautiful! A horse lovers heaven. Wake up to the trainers working the horses, the sounds of nature and Jean's warm, welcoming smile.
It will be our "home away from home" next year. Oh, and most importantly...bring carrots!

My 2grandchildren and I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the farm. Everything was there that we needed. Very clean and adequate space. We just had to bring our games, personal items and food, and of course, carrots for the horses. Our host, Jean and her staff were very helpful, and we even went swimming in Jean's pool. I knew the weekend was a success when my granddaughter asked when we were coming back.

“What a wonderful experience to stay on a horse farm.”

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage on the horse farm. What a pleasure it was to wake up and look out the window and see horses running in the pasture. It was such a great experience for our family (which consisted of school age children) to walk around the farm and see the horses and feed them carrots and talk to the staff and the owner. There is numerous things to do near by.......springs, pancake breakfast at DeLeon Springs State Park, pioneer village. The cottage is nice and our family of four stayed there comfortably. From a previous review we learned there is well water and therefore we brought our own water so it was a non issue for us.
