we stayed for 2 nights in APril and it was simply stunning. We had the loft cottage, which is very nicely decorated (think French boutique) and has a lovely deck with jacuzzi and gas bbq. The setting is stunning, right by the river, so we spent a lot of time on the deck watching the river and gator spotting. The sunsets are wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the cookout they have on a Sunday was great - lots of locals around and a very good vibe. I would absolutley recommend this as the perfect way to relax after a few days of fun in Orlando. Simply beautiful.
