A Beautiful Surprise!

Pictures do not do this place justice. After driving through acres and acres of groves, then down a street where I wasn’t sure if I would be able to turn around we get waved in by the super friendly host. Then we drive into find a stunning lakeside view. It was one of those places that makes you feel so grateful that they share their home with BW. Lucky us!

Unexpected Oasis

After traveling miles through endless orange groves we were suddenly greeted by our host who allowed us to park anywhere on their property which had hardwood trees and a beautiful lake. Our host quickly responded to our request and was very warm and welcoming. We also were treated to a community barbecue where we were able to meet the very gracious and generous locals. This is a great stop to stay and visit the Bek Tower and Gardens. Thank you for allowing us to stay and enjoy your future travels.

Beautiful lake, catfish, and nice people

Enjoyed our one night here. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. They even let us tag along to go visit a neighbor who feeds catfish .... it was a real treat! This is a beautiful place with great hosts and we highly recommend it!

Scenic quiet shoreline

This site is a wonderful place to shake off the Florida driving and busyness. I was given my choice of how to position myself for the best view and breeze. It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful, while feeling very safe. I enjoyed my 2 nights and a beautiful visit to Bok Tower and Gardens. Thanks to the hosts for making this available!

Lovely Couple & location

Agordon9292 did a fabulous job communicating with us on our way in and got us settled in their beautiful location. We were only there one day, but will definitely return. They are both very friendly and their location is super quiet and looks out on a beautiful lake.

Wonderful place to rest, and enjoy the view of the lake!

Picturesque lakeside setting, beautiful.

This spot is a Boondockers dream with the Spanish moss filled old trees and the large lake. The location is open and quiet. We did not get to spend enough time here and would love to come back. Our host were very accommodating and great folks to meet. Loved it and convent for our day at Disney.

Lake retreat

Very friendly hosts and a great stay. Large mowed back yard compound mostly flat on a dead end road. Great view of the lake right from our van caught a fish off their dock. Very quiet spot couldn’t have asked for more. This place is what makes Boondockers welcome so special and unique.

Beautiful location off the beaten path

As you approach this host's home you will pass through miles and miles of orange orchards. During our stay most of the trees were laden with oranges. We can only imagine the beautiful scent when the trees are in bloom! The hosts were gracious, meeting us as we arrived and helping us pull into a spot on their large yard overlooking a lake. Our stay was peaceful and relaxing. Thanks!!!

Absolutely perfect!

This place is everything you could ever wish for in a boondocking stay. These hosts are so welcoming and friendly, you instantly feel like you've been longtime friends. So generous, thoughtful and just genuinely good people. There property, oh their property! So so beautiful and peaceful! We loved having our morning coffee and devotional time on the dock. Our spot was perfectly shaded with views from every window of the lake, level and plenty of space for not only our rig but for our kids to run around. We are so grateful for our stay and hope to someday be able to meet again sometime!

Quiet spot by the lake.

We had a nice restful stay. It is very quiet. Beautiful view. Loved the huge oak with the moss. Agordon9292 were very friendly and we had a short chat . We wish we had more time to visit but we had to get on the road.

Secluded and peaceful

Tucked up on the shores of a quiet lake, nestled back in the orange groves. Our hosts we're very communicative and allowed us a completely private experience. We walked along the lake, rode our bikes through the groves, listened to the owls & watched all the brilliant stars under the gorgeous live oak canopy. Thank you for such a pleasant first time boondocking!

Fantastic location and very nice hosts :)

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location right at a lake is really beautiful and our hosts made us feel very welcome. If we had not been on a schedule, we would have gladly extended our stay.

Amazing Hosts & Beautiful Property

We'd like to thank these wonderful hosts for letting us enjoy their little slice of heaven! Not only did we practically have 180 degree views of the lake, but the hosts at Shorewood Retreat were very welcoming and helpful. Weather was going into the 30s at night and we were assured that we could use our generator if we needed - or come inside if we were freezing! How warm of a welcome is that?! Super nice folks. If we're coming back through this area, we'd love to stay again!

Wonderful Hosts

Really enjoyed our visit! The hosts were friendly and welcoming. Fort Meade reminded me of my hometown. Definitely recommend staying here if you’re in the area.

Great stay

We really enjoyed the drive to get to this location. The drive through the acres and acres of orange groves made it such a pleasant drive. Then once there, you sit under the blue sky, look at the blue lake, and listen to the birds. It just doesn’t get any better, right?! Oh, but it does! The hosts are SO awesome! They are super helpful, friendly, and informative. We truly enjoyed our time there and would love for them to come visit us sometime. Thanks to both of you for the great hospitality!

Excellent hosts!

Pete and Angie treated us royally and went above and beyond. This spot along the lake is very peaceful. A bonus was watching the neighbor feed the catfish off of his dock. The dead end road provides a super place to walk or bicycle along the orange groves.

Wonderful hosts.

They came to meet us on the road to direct us. A very large lot very close to a magnificent lake.
They offered to go to the dock to relax.
Very quiet place. Our hosts received us with burgers, we spent a very nice evening with them and Ryan another boondocker, fortunately because our English is not yet very good.

They made us visit one of their neighbors who feed cats fish.

I recommend a stop at Shorewood Retreat.
Thanks

Peaceful and Beautiful

Wonderful stay. Great communication with A and got to meet and chat with P who was very helpful directing us to park.
Property surrounded by Lake Buffon and we were able to enjoy the evening sitting on their fishing pier. Woke up to a gorgeous overcast sky and windy morning after a great nights sleep!

Thank you A and P for your generosity sharing your wonderful home with us.

Great hosts and a great location!

Thank you Agordon9292 for your hospitality. After fighting traffic all day it was a surprise to find our campsite came with a lake view and quiet, peaceful location and access to your boat dock. Sorry we missed you on the way out but I'm sure we will stay with again in the future.

2nd Time Back! Beautiful Property & Amazing Hosts!

If we are ever back in the area we will definitely return. Nice big spot to park right near the water! The one thing to know is there are ants where you will be parking. Not a deal breaker by any means, but just something to be aware of.

Wonderful!

Angie & Peter are both wonderful hosts, a great addition to Boondockers Welcome.
Their location in Central Florida is very country like with many orange orchards &
a beautiful lake. Have your camera ready, especially for the beautiful sunsets.
Thank you Angie & Peter, I hope to someday spend more time to get to know you.
Sincerely,
Chuck

Lakeside Paradise

We recently stayed for just one night on our way through and wished we hadn’t already booked ahead as we would have stayed for more. The spot was flat, quiet and backed right onto a beautiful lake. The hosts met us on arrival and were so generous with their offerings including use of their golf buggy, kayaks and dock. Highly recommend!

Lake view paradise.

The best Boondockers Welcome host and lake site by far! We were welcomed to this beautiful lake setting, by our hosts and invited for a nice dinner. Our coach overlooked the lake, and we launched our kayaks off their boat dock our 1st evening, then after breakfast another kayak stroll. This place is a MUST see gem! Paved roads to driveway, nice shade, and good southern hospitality, by our hosts. Thanks!
