“Historic, Unique, and Comfortable!”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

Chassahowitzka Hotel is a unique little piece of history from the early 1900's, tucked away in the Crystal River region of Citrus County. The facility is comfortable, clean, charming, and the room rates were very reasonable. The owner David is easy-going, good-natured, and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the handicapped room downstairs which was spacious and had its own large bathroom. The area itself is ideal for people that like to fish, kayak, hike, birdwatch, sightsee, and best of all swim with the manatees -- and the hotel is centrally located to access all of it. It's a paradise for the eco-tourist, outdoor enthusiast, and angler alike. Definitely recommend! My only criticisms that subtract a point are that the included breakfasts could be improved with healthier more wholesome options, and that the bed was a little bit uncomfortable.

Room Tip: The handicapped room has a private bathroom. The other rooms didn't.

My sister and I visited Chassahowitzka because we had spent many childhood days there with family and friends who lived there. We loved the spring fed river, the woods, the wildlife presereve, etc. and wanted to see "wild florida" again. June is Not the best time for fishing back bay, but we wanted to experience the river and outlying area. We stayed at the Chassahowitzka Hotel because it was center stage for our activities (and there are many more activities you could do). The owner, David Strickland was there to greet and check us in. He was gracious, helpfull and you could tell he took pride in his hotel. He recommended a wonderful restaurant nearby callled "Pecks Port of Call, in Ozelo, and it was OUTSTANDING! I'm a florida native and the seafood platter (grouper, shrimp and bay scallops) was perfect, just superb. Driving out the 9 miles is an adventure in itself, winding roads barely above the backwaters. Pretty. The hotel accommodations were extremely clean, neat and "homey", with modern conveniences and plenty of charm. The beds are on the "firm" side, but we slept well. You could see the pride of ownership and the loving way this 100yr old hotel was refurbished. I understand they get most of their business from golfers. Some take over the whole hotel and it's a bargain and close to the courses. A friend had a family reunion there and it's a great idea, everyone staying close together and all. It helps to go to the Hotels Facebook page. They can have dinner provided for parties of 8 and up. Also, David got us a fishing guide that was moored at a dock only steps away. Many people love to kyack, canoe and enjoy this wild river. And there are parks/preserves and the like nearby. Homosassa Springs has a nice nature park where the fish are up close and personal, too. Well, I'm just saying, if you want to enjoy a simple, nature themed vacation or excursion, check the area out. Check out the areas around and you'll see that this hotel and small town (next to Homosassa) is a great starting point or destination. It's for nature lovers, there's no spa or bar or the like.You can find that in the near vacinity. But we got what we went for, and then some. Hope you go and enjoy.

Our group of Memphis area golfers loved the facility, food and outstanding service provided by David and his staff. Look no further for the perfect golf get away!
