Hontoon Landing Resort & Marina is a delightful place, located on the beautiful St. Johns River near DeLand, FL. It's convenient to the attractions and beaches, but is a destination unto itself. There is much to see and do.
The grounds are planted as a hummingbird garden, which doubles nicely as a butterfly garden. You're surrounded by "old Florida" wilderness, so rent a boat, or enjoy the informative tour offered by Blue Heron River Tours which is based here. There is wildlife galore, making this a destination for photography, birding, fishing, and for anyone who appreciates natural beauty. The resort's Ship's Store provides info and supplies.
The rooms--some with full kitchens--and suites are most comfortable, offering water views and an inviting pool. This is also a first-rate marina, so you might decide to wander the docks at sunset. The locals are helpful and friendly!
Bottom line, Hontoon Landing Resort & Marina is a gem.
