Quiet and peaceful

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The perfect quiet get-away. On day one, we sat on the marina deck where we were entertained by watching all of the "retired" couples work on their boats, amused by all of the boat renters attempting to dock, and enjoyed all of the little geckos running around all while consuming a bottle of wine bought from the marina. Late afternoon, we took a very short walk down the road to the free ferry that ferried us to the Island, so we could walk off the bottle of wine on the well-groomed paths. That evening we drove down the road a couple of miles to a fun little authentic German pub and consumed a few German beers on tap. On day two we took the two-hour guided boat tour, which was very affordable and saw dozens of gators and hundreds of birds. (Manatees were just out of season) We then topped off the weekend by laying at the pool under the umbrella while consuming another bottle of wine. This resort is in the middle of nowhere and a tiny piece of relaxation heaven. The staff are over the top and extremely friendly. The airport (Sanford) is about 40 minutes away and there is a Winn-Dixie close by. What more could you ask for? Oh yes, this place was less expensive than a hotel room! We definitely recommend staying here.

Blissfully happy at Hontoon

Hummingbird cottage was awesome. We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every minute. April warmly welcomed us and her staff was very kind and helpful. The cottage though dated was sparkling clean. It was very private and quiet. The TV's worked very well and got many stations. The kitchen was amply supplied if you choose to cook. The onsite deli served delicious breakfasts and sandwiches. It was an active marina, and we enjoyed watching the rental boats coming and going. As avid birdwatchers we enjoyed the many birds on the river. We would highly recommend Hontoon Resort and Marina.

Humming Bird Cottage hits the mark - so cute.

A lovely little hideaway. As a couple we stayed at Hummngbird Cottge (number 3) for four nights at Hontoon Landing Resort and Marina. What a find. The little cottage is set up for two people perfectly (with wheelchair access). There are kitchen amenities (fridge, cooker, microwave), dining table and chairs, separate room with double bed and en suite shower and toilet. A little shed on site with coin operated washing machines and dryer - what more could you want? We hired a pontoon boat for one day and took our time floating around the St John's River bird spotting. We took 100's of photos so we could identify them all on our return. We saw many alligators, though I'm sure there were more that saw us. We found playful otters and watched a few manatee cruise past. They also offer organised 2 hour cruises from the marina. The Hontoon Marina Deli provides a great breakfast and the staff were ALL so chatty and welcoming. Mary Lou introduced us to Whitey the Great Egret who comes when called for his minnows. We were able to photograph a Limpkin showing off how he eats mussels. We caught the ferry over to Hontoon Island and spent a few hours wandering around taking in the sights and sounds. There are minimal facilities on the island but you can camp or use their cabins which are all very basic. We had a fabulous time, thank you, I just know we WILL go back. Very best wishes Sue and Richard.

5/5 Excellent

The resort is older but the cottage we stayed in was very clean. The grounds are very mature and very well maintained. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The deli was convenient and had great food. My husband rented and fishing boat and caught 36 crappies (or specks as we call them). Very quite and serene. A truly beautiful place to stay. We will return.

Stayed 5 nights in Dec 2018

Hummingbird Cottage at Hontoon

Anytime I spend time in DeLand, FL, the Hummingbird Cottage at Hontoon will be the place that I would stay. The cottages furniture, especially televisions are outdated, but the cottage itself was great. I'm happy that there are rules put into place especially for quite time from 11:00 p.m., to 8:00 a.m. It was very peaceful and the St. John's River is beautiful. Great place to stay!
