We invite you to come recharge at this tranquil, luxuriously appointed cabin on a citrus ranch, surrounded by nature. Features a BBQ area, fire circle, covered event pavilion, and additional space for the family and friends to camp.

About the Property

The Love Lodge is a tranquil oasis within minutes of the Alafia River State Park, Florida's #1 mountain biking trail, as well as a number of other destinations for boating, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, carting, ATV, and skeet shooting. We are only 5 minutes to the Alderman Ford Canoe Launch on the Alafia River, just upstream of Lithia Springs. The property is also a great jumping off point for berry picking and flower picking when the season is right. 

Located in the town of Lithia, conveniently between Tampa and Orlando, we are 15 minutes away from antique shopping in Plant City and Lakeland; 20 minutes from Dinosaur World; 30 minutes from Busch Gardens Tampa; and an hour and 15 minutes from Disney World. The Gulf beaches are also within striking distance if you’re looking to enjoy some time on the coast.

About the listing

The Love Lodge is a beautiful and spacious light-filled cabin that can accommodate five guests comfortably (we offer a master bed, pull out bed, and couch). Approach the cabin on the long driveway built using shells from the famous shell mounds of Apollo Beach -- built up over thousands of years by Native Americans deriving their sustenance from the Gulf waters. If you look closely, you may find shark teeth amongst these shells. 

While at the site enjoy access to clean water, a comfortable bathroom, hot showers, cozy fire pits, and a picnic area for outdoor dining. You will have access to the cabin's kitchen which includes an oven, fridge, freezer, sink, cookware, cooking utensils, dishware, and cutlery, basic seasoning and oils. 

Pets are welcome. 

While you have complete privacy at the cabin, we do have another listing on the property, so you may run into other campers out on the grounds. 

Your Hosts are available to greet you upon arrival if you like, or are also happy to offer self check-in per guest preference.

Very cute and clean cabin! Christine is so personable and surprised me with flowers for my birthday (since I told her the reason for our visit) She is a great host and everything you could want our need is at the cabin. She has it stayed so beautifully too. It's a normal cabin with plumbing, full kitchen, etc., so no "roughing it out" here. The bed and pillows are so soft and comfortable. Everything was so great and wonderful. We were able to bring our dog too! To top everything off, my guy proposed while we were here! He really liked how peaceful and quaint it is (except for the walnuts falling on the metal roof but I didn't mind it). We can't wait to come back again soon. Thank you so much!! -Antoinette

We really enjoyed this place. Besides it’s beauty, we loved the bonfire, the quiet, the relaxing deep baths💗💗 The location is perfect. Away from everything but close enough. The lodge is well equipped and so cozy!! We will definitely be going back. 👍👍

We loved our stay here at this beautiful cabin! All the little decorative details were so cute! The place itself is so cozy and felt like a home away from home, very relaxing & grounding.

We had a lovely evening with our kids and dogs, and met some new friends who were RV camping on the grounds as well. The kids were kept entertained by the playground and the net swing during the day, and the fire pit at night. The home is rustic chic, totally cozy, and every accommodation was accounted for. Top it off with an attentive, responsive, and caring host. A total gem.

This property was incredible. The place was meticulously curated and offered lots of spaces to gather. Just hanging at the lodge was a highlight of our trip. We had everything we needed and more. Christine was an awesome host and it was really cool hearing the history of the property. We already wanna go back!

There are so many wonderful things about the Love Lodge that there’s not enough space here for me to comment. The hosts have thought of everything to give visitors a wonderful quiet weekend away. This place also could double as an event gathering with a beautiful lighted outdoor pavilion area. It was a very cozy, relaxing, romantic weekend. We cannot recommend it highly enough. Thrall who choose to stay here, you won’t be disappointed.
