The Destination
Ocklawaha, Florida, offers lush forests and scenic waterfront vistas along the the 5,000-acre Lake Weir, a popular playground for boaters and outdoor enthusiasts. Just 62 miles northwest of Orlando and 20 miles south of Ocala, this quaint community is a much-needed refuge from the bright lights and big crowds. Silver Springs and Ocala National Forest—a favorite for hiking, biking, and bird watching—are only minutes away.

The Digs
Situated underneath the majestic oaks on the banks of Lake Weir, The Nest on Lake Weir features modern touches that are both aesthetically pleasing (wide plank floors, high ceilings, and airy décor) and convenient (a flat-screen TV, iPod listening station, and a wet bar with a microwave and mini refrigerator). You'll be tempted to roost here all day, lounging in the 350 thread-count linens, sinking into the Adirondack chairs outside, or soaking in the Jacuzzi tub. When you are ready to explore more of your habitat, there are multiple alternatives for enjoying the inn's two lush acres and beach.

The Diversions
Rent a pontoon boat and explore the lake, or paddle around on The Nest's complimentary kayaks or stand-up paddle boards. As the day starts to wind down, start a game of bocce ball or gather on the inn's large front deck for prime sunset viewing before heading to Gator Joe's Beach Bar & Grill or Eaton's Beach Sandbar & Grill, two excellent lakefront eateries with mouthwatering menus.
