We wanted to stay near Ocala and found the Nest on Trip advisor. The place is a real gem - our room was well appointed with lots of amenities such as a fridge with water, a coffee maker, glasses and plates. The grounds were well kept and the dock/beach area was a perfect place for a wine at sunset. The...

I could go on and on about this place with the outstanding staff and the overall beauty of the Nest really standing out!!! We will be back and are considering making this a yearly stop!! If you want to enjoy Florida in a private setting this is the spot for sure........

We needed a room on short notice and the Nest was the only available spot in the greater Ocala area. What a nice surprise. The manager called us after receiving the TA reservation to make sure we had directions. Our only regret is that we could only stay for one night.

The Nest on Lake Weir is both unique and comfortable. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. I would definitely try to stay at The Nest on Lake Weir if I am in this area again. You may have to use MapQuest or some other locator to find the best driving directions, but it is worth the time and...

Spent only one night here, but want to come back. Great room and staff. The location can't be beat if you are looking for a quiet getaway. Beautifully landscaped and kept grounds. Beautiful old oak trees with spanish moss and cafe lights strung in them. Very magical at night. Would be an amazing place for a wedding or event or...

Spend a day or several here and you will feel as if you've entered a different space and time. Recline in one of the yard swings and look up at the live oaks on a gentle night lit by tiny white patio lights and you'll feel like you've died and gone to heaven. Stretch on the dock in the morning...

We stayed here for one night while on a self-supported bicycling trip. What a lovely place! Beautiful grounds, large oak trees, a nice sandy beach on Lake Weir, plenty of outdoor seating to relax in the sun or shade. Our room was spacious, clean and pleasant. Breakfast was just a simple do-it-yourself offering of yogurt, juice and packaged snacks, but...

We stayed at the Nest Halloween weekend, this is by far the most beautiful, relaxing place we have been in a very long time! Actually I don't think I have ever stayed somewhere that the pictures are exactly the way the place looked...I can't tell you how impressed I was when I walked into our cottage....amazing! From the hanging lights...

We just love the Nest, we chose to bring our entire family here for the weekend for a family reunion and couldn't of been happier. From the cozy cabins, the boat rentals, and the local eateries everything was amazing. Thanks again to everyone at the Nest for taking such great care of us.

This place is a hidden gem...though not so hidden anymore. We stayed in room 11 this time and what a wonderful room. Alex was extremely pleasant and always willing to assist us. We will definitely return.
