Weeki Wachee: Manatee House

Experience a peaceful and relaxing stay at our simple, comfortable lodging that serves as the perfect base of operations for your outdoor adventures. 3-bedroom waterfront home, accommodating up to 6 guests with 4 beds and 1.5 baths. Take in the scenic views of the canal and river, and after a long day of fishing or kayaking unwind in our private hot tub or by the fire pit. Stay entertained with our TV and stay comfortable with air conditioning. Stay connected with our WIFI, and cook your own catch in our fully equipped kitchen. Our outdoor amenities include outdoor furniture, an outdoor dining area, and a BBQ grill, but we draw specific attention to our fire pit, which provides the perfect ambiance for a relaxing evening. Additionally, we offer free parking on premises to make your stay even more convenient.

Spend a day inshore fishing on a mudboat, kayak, or bay skiff! Catch redfish, trout, pompano, and snook with natural or artificial bait, all just a stone’s throw away from your vacation home. We’ll provide the bed, you provide the dinner. Offshore fishing offers grouper, cobia, tripletail, snapper, and kingfish in the Gulf of Mexico! From trolling to chumming, we’ll use a variety of tactics and baits to make sure your trip is unforgettable. Explore reefs, wrecks, sunken springs, and ledges, and be amazed at the variety of fish that are waiting to be caught. Scuba diving enthusiasts can’t miss the Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, a natural spring that flows into the Weeki Wachee River. Experienced divers can explore the park’s designated dive area, but be sure to make a reservation to ensure access. If you prefer, there are several dive operators that offer charters to popular dive sites in the Gulf of Mexico.

For a fun-filled day with the family, take a Scallop Tour along the Nature Coast’s miles of pristine, clear-water grass flats. Snorkel in 2-4 feet of water and enjoy the underwater scenery, spotting a variety of fish, turtles, seahorses, conch shells, corals, sponges, and of course, scallops. And after a day of adventure, indulge in the wonderfully tasty little morsels of bay scallop goodness! After the sun sets, explore the shallows in search of sheepshead, flounder, black drum, snapper, mullet, and other tasty treats just below the surface. Our Gigging Charter Trips last for 5 hours and take place in the backwaters of Crystal River and Ozello, where you’ll navigate the mazes of mangrove islands, creek mouths, and oyster bars. We can recommend some local experts to make sure your night stalking adventure is a success!

The Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located just 10 miles north of Weeki Wachee. It offers a vast expanse of sandhill, mesic hammock, and forested wetland habitats, as well as three nearby satellite tracts. You’ll find a remnant population of Florida black bear, gopher tortoises, Sherman’s fox squirrel, and many imperiled snake species in this region of Florida. You can explore the area by bike or on foot, with two interpretive trails and plenty of unpaved roads and old logging trams to choose from. Hunting is also popular in the area, but safety is always a top priority due to the presence of underwater caves that house populations of troglobitic invertebrate species. Bird and butterfly enthusiasts will also enjoy the species diversity found in the area.
