Poised to delight,  Floating Cottage provides a magical space to relax, replenish and explore.  Relax on the front porch, enjoy the warm breeze while turtles leisurely beg for a treat.  Replenish in the peaceful comfort of the fully equipped home.  Observe nature by boat or by foot, and explore the old-town charm of nearby Sanford, Florida.   Disney World is less than an hour away.

The cottage is berthed in the Boat Tree Marina, just north of Lake Monroe on the scenic St. Johns River, a river of abundant wildlife and scenic vistas.  The marina offers a casual deli and restaurant, bait shop, laundry and pool.  Guests of Floating Cottage enjoy a 15% discount on boat rentals.

Quaint downtown Sanford is home to cobblestone streets and brick-lined store fronts, restored nineteenth-century Victorian homes, lovely towering oaks draped with spanish moss, numerous art galleries, unique shops, and great restaurants.

The Riverwalk on Lake Monroe, a bit over a mile long, has shady places aplenty to watch lake activity or beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
