Just returned from my 9th stay at Grasshopper Lake Lodge! As always, I return restored & renewed.
The peace & quiet & nature all around the cabin, just can't be beat!
My husband compares it to the float plane fly-in trip we took to Ontario 13 years ago, & we sure had to go A LOT farther and spend A LOT more $$ to get there!!
David keeps upgrading the comforts at the cabin & makes it the most welcoming & well appointed cabin in the woods!
Up each morning before dawn with the bird's song...then a hike or canoe/kayak trip....bit of fishing ( don't worry, if you don't wish to go out on the lake, the bluegill & catfish will happily visit you at the dock!
A nice lunch on the deck...then perhaps a nap...you want to be rested for the firefly show after dark...or to roast marshmallows by the fire & watch for the gray fox to visit!
We always have the BEST & most relaxing time here! We have never returned so many times to the same vacation spot! So it HAS to be VERY SPECIAL!!
We are planning our 10th visit very soon....
one foot inside the door, and you know you have arrived in a cherished dwelling. peace is all around. watching the sunset, or the occasional kayak or fisherman cruise by on the lake is so sweet. within a couple of days you sync with natures time-clock, and rise for coffee and daybreak. after the sunset, you can hear the old wood cabin creak a little as it cools in the night air, then you know its time to get comfy for the night. The cabin has every amenity, and all in good working order. Books games movies, cards, a couple of good "old movie" channels on TV take you back in time a little. when I am here I dont think about much, when I am back at work, I think about Grasshopper lodge!
Amazing secluded little cabin. The owner makes you feel like you're staying at a friends home, Stocked better than my own home, with things to do (i.e. kayak , canoe, movies, games, etc). My wife is already planning another trip to this cabin.
We found wonderful solitude close to hiking and exploration opportunities. David designed a cabin retreat true to its rustic roots with tasteful updates and decor. Can't believe this is Florida and not the northwoods! We enjoyed relaxing on the porch or dock after our daily adventures, and enjoyed the indoors during a gentle overnight rain. We appreciate the detailed driving instructions and advice to shop for groceries before arriving. No AT&T cell coverage within several miles so call in advance with your ETA. Doris was so helpful and friendly in getting us situated and being available if needed.
We sincerely thank David for this piece of heaven on earth and for even allowing this cabin to be rented. This place is absolutely beautiful and unforgettable. We had the most relaxing and peaceful vacation we have ever experienced. The lodge itself is thoughtful from end to end. Everything you could possibly want and need is there, from central air and heat, to flat-screen tvs, to a king size bed, to a full kitchen, to a gas bbq outside, to a beautiful canoe for the lake out front. Those are just a few things out of a hundred that provides luxury and everything possibly desired while staying. The surrounding nature and the area is gorgeous. The lake is simply beautiful and so clean you can see 20 feet down, and loaded with record size largemouth bass. The dock you can sit at with the table and chairs is lovely.. perfect for the divine sunsets and the glorious sunrises. I could never say enough good things about this place. We simply cannot wait to return and stay again and again, every year. The peace and serenity it allowed to enter our souls was simply a blessing. This is one of the hidden gems and best kept secrets in Florida. Thank you again.
