Adventure, Enchantment, and Seclusion Await You!

Located behind Clyde Butcher’s gallery in the Big Cypress National Preserve in the center of over a million acres of wilderness, the cabins allow you to escape to the Florida Everglades in comfort while exploring this one-of-a-kind ecosystem. Our charming cottage offers you all the comforts of home, yet it’s a hideaway nestled within the cypress swamp.

Be sure to bring your own groceries – there are no grocery stores or restaurants in the immediate area.

Due to limited space in the vicinity of the rentals, and the configuration of our paved driveway, we cannot accommodate boats, trailers, RVs or any other pull-behind in the area of the rentals. Inquire for details about parking if needed.

Plan a 2-3 night stay – there is a lot to do and see! Located just 17 miles to the east is the Everglades National Park, Shark Valley. Ride the tram, bike, or walk up the tower ramp for excellent viewing of the swamp. During the winter months, birds are in abundance, and identifying them is a fun activity. Everglades City is located 25 miles to the west. This location is excellent for kayaking through mangroves, fishing, airboat tours, and dining.

If you want to stay close by, the Big Cypress National Preserve Oasis Visitor Center is just a few miles west of us. Park Rangers are happy to inform you of the activities, including guided canoe rides down Turner River (where you can explore mangrove tunnels), guided hikes, viewing the night sky, and much more. Also close by, just 8.5 miles to the east, is Kirby Storter Roadside Park. There you can enjoy a 1-mile round trip boardwalk stroll through a mature cypress strand.

Only 6 miles from our location is Loop Road. As you travel down Loop Road, you’ll come to the Gator Hook trail, where there are picnic tables and a restroom. Gator Hook Trail is where Clyde took one of his well-known photographs. Further along the road is Sweet Water, a creek that flows under the road and a great spot for early morning bird watching.
