Our Central Florida accommodations feature unique gardens that change year round, offering a casual and pretty landscape. We are set amid 8 acres of beautiful lakefront land. That makes us feel very rural, even though we are only minutes from everything!
In this Central Florida garden, each area of the yard has something different for you to see. We have lots to show off to you, from the exotic to the plain. Ginger is next to elephant ears, is next to azaela bushes, are next to oranges, are near basil, behind palm trees…Come and see what we have for you!
Enjoy Central Florida Birdwatching
Central Florida is rich with birds of all kinds, from majestic eagles and osprey, to tiny tufted titmouse and cardinals – a birdwatchers paradise! Sit on our porches and watch our feathered friends fly through the air, fish in Lake Eulalia, chase each other through the bushes and splash around in the bird bath. At night you will hear the sound of the owls. Both screech and barred owls are common in this area.
Birds seem to sense that our Central Florida accommodations are a Certified Wildlife Habitat, and know there is food, water and shelter here for them to enjoy. They make their nests among the many trees and bushes that are here on over 8 acres of beautiful lakefront land. Just a half mile walk from our Central Florida Bed & Breakfast will bring you to an official Audubon Birds of Prey Center. There you can view birds such as kites, hawks, kestrels, owls and falcons in their natural habitats. “Trouble” and “Francis,” both bald eagles, are unable to be released back into the wild, so they are on display daily to visitors.
Stroll around any of our 22 Maitland lakes, and you will see our feathered friends in their natural environments. Lake Lily boasts many duck families, along with snowy egrets, great blue herons, ibis and anhinga.
