Why so darn good? "These detached bungalows were used as barracks during WWII. When they were no longer needed, they were moved to their present location near the center of historic Dunnellon. Since then they have been extensively remodeled several times. Today each room sports a different theme and the decor and furnishings are absolutely gorgeous. The innkeepers are wonderful. There is so much to do in the area, and best of all, the rooms are just $55-65 - in season!"
Location: "Dunnellon is located on the Nature Coast of Florida (the Gulf Coast in the northern part of the state, where it meets the panhandle). The area is home to cross-country bicycling trails, miles of hiking trails, natural springs, and great access to boating, kayaking, and deep sea fishing."
Rooms: "Wonderful big fluffy beds with scads of tossed pillows, very clean and extremely well maintained. Each cottage also has a big screened porch with outdoor furniture for enjoying the evening breezes sans mosquitoes."
Food: "No on-site food, but great restaurants two blocks away in the center of Dunnellon's Historic District, which is home to more than 70 old homes, many of which have been restored."
Vibe: "Cool and laid back. Rainbow Springs State Park and KP Hole County Park are close by, and both are a best bet for activities. At night, several local places have live entertainment."
Keep in Mind: "This is not the "theme park" part of Florida, but you will discover fine folks and an area of the state where you can experience 'old Florida.'"
