Perfect for some rest and relaxation! Rooms are beautiful and the lake is tranquil place to destress. Ideal for a weekend getaway for people living in Tampa or Orlando. The staff was very accomodating. Highly recommend eating at Eatons Beach Restaurant while you are in town.

We had a Celebration of Life gathering at this facility catered spending two days reminiscing, sitting by a beach fire, chasing children and releasing paper lanterns. This is a five star facility with attention to every detail and non-boring embellishments. Relax and enjoy bliss.
