“This cottage is simply AMAZING!”

We recently sold our house in Tavares and needed a place to stay until the closing. I located Fox Haven on VRBO and drove by it first, then contacted the owners. I have stayed at many rentals all over the place, but this was by far the most well stocked. Everything you needed was there, and more! The hosts, Bill and Betty were extremely accommodating and unobtrusive. They were there if you needed them, but were not pushy in any way. This cottage has a great screened in Florida room that I spent a lot of time in, just relaxing. It is a quiet neighborhood and there are bird feeders, which brings a lot of pleasure while you are sitting in the sun room. The bathroom has been completely remodeled and really cool. I took pictures so I could try to duplicate it when we find our new home. There were fresh flowers on the table for our arrival, which was a very sweet touch. Coffeemaker, coffee filters, and even Starbucks coffee was in the cupboard. I paid for the stay online and the owner noticed that his special pricing structure had not carried over to the website, and he was honest enough to mention it and charge the lesser price, which is amazing. Never had that happen before. He is an accountant and as meticulous about his cottage as he probably is with his client's taxes. We would definitely stay there again, when we go back to Tavares. There was also a neat guest book that had all kinds of details about the area. We didn't need that part of it, as we have lived in Tavares for 3 years, but it is there for folks not familiar with the area. Great place with great owners. I highly recommend it!

“A good base to visit Central Florida and to relax.”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Want to go to Disney World and not fight the traffic? Only an hour away and three roads with little traffic to Disney. Centrally located to Orlando, Ocala, and Leesburg . A very quiet neighborhood, a minute away from the business district and major highway. We stayed here four days to attend our grandson's graduation and went to Disney World Hollywood Studios. The cottage was perfect for a couple but has a pull out sofa for more. The living room was more roomy than I expected. Bill and Betty was so welcoming and asked if they could do any more to make our stay more pleasant. In the future when we visit our daughter and grand-kids, this will be our place to stay. When word gets out, we may have a hard time making reservations. So much better than a motel.

We stayed here while visiting family close by and were extremely happy with the cottage. So much nicer and more private than a hotel. Adorable décor and very, very clean - so happy I found it!

Every amenity that you wished for is here. Great location that was easy for us to come & go. Fantastic large lanai to relax on & read without bugs & sun. Would use again any time.
