Lovely, relaxing spot close the The Villages but away from all of the hustle that comes with Lady Lake. We stayed here for three nights while visiting family in the Villages and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grounds, the nicely appointed room and the evening sunsets on the dock. Walking distance to Big Bob's restaurant and just a short drive to...

My son had his wedding here and it was just perfect! It's a beautiful location, well tended and the rooms were immaculate. The wedding and reception under the lighted tress made for gorgeous photos. Everyone loved their rooms and enjoyed their stay. I would not hesitate to highly recommend The Nest to anyone.

I stayed at the Nest while I was in town on Business and after a long day it was so nice to come back to a beautiful cottage. The entire property was beautiful with strings of lights hang from the trees. I hope to return for pleasure in the near future.

We stayed in Room 6 with the open porch. The room was very clean and well maintained with a wonderful view of the lake and live oaks. The swings beneath the oldest and biggest live oak on the property were romantic. There is a dollar general and fantastic Italian restaurant across the street. The manager was very sweet and accommodating...
