    My wife, Nancy and I are retired. We have four sons and 16 grandchildren, two great children. We live on 30 acres in Polk County. The cabin on Weeki Wachee River was build for a family get- away. It is close by and convenient (only 90 minutes away ). We decided to share it with others.

We have been returning guest for 3 years-we just booked next year WHILE SITTING ON THE DOCK AT THE RIVER CABIN!!!! Words can not describes how wonderful this place and The Roberts are.......you WILL NOT be disappointed!!!! GOD IS GOOD AT ALL TIMES......however He does "show off" at the river!! BEAUTY BY GODS HANDS:-)
