When I recently visited the Palmer House in Lithia, Florida, it reminded me of the country days I experienced when my children were going up. Sometimes when you walk into a Bed and Breakfast you experience a feeling of, I’m so glad I came. I was fortunate to stay at the lovely Palmer House and received a warm welcome from the owners, Gail and Bob Palmer.  Every little detail of the Bed and Breakfast was well thought out. The color of the front door and the wreath that hung there was so inviting.   I was charmed by all the décor and the spaciousness of the guest rooms. Palmer House sits on 8 acres of land housing a beautiful gazebo for the Weddings that take place there, along with the screened outdoor pool, the enticing hot tub and the beautiful oak trees that give you a feeling of peace. You will see cows grazing in the pasture. I breathed in the fragrance of the blooming orange blossoms and smiled at the lovely flowers blooming as I walked around the yard.

Even though you feel you are in the country, civilization is just around the corner. Palmer House backs up to the amazing community of Fish Hawk Trails off of Lithia Pinecrest Road and the nearby restaurants are plentiful. Also, very nearby is horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking and all the pleasures of the country. What a wonderful place to spend the dog days of summer.

Lithia is located in Hillsborough County near Tampa with lots of shopping nearby. Disney, Adventure Island and the beaches are all within an hours drive or less.

Florida kayaking

Imagine yourself on a paddling adventures in Central East Florida.

Kayak tours are a fantastic way to explore both coastal waters and inland waters. Try a romantic sunset paddle, or a moonlight cook-out and paddle. Consider an afternoon of kayak sailing; it’s a great way to cover more distance and pick up a little speed. Kayak the Jack Island Preserve area of the Indian River Lagoon or the quiet Sebastian river. Explore Blue Cypress Lake, home to many wonderful birds, or paddle around the Barrier Islands, home to dolphins and manatee. Any time in a kayak will be fun. See Tropical Kayak Tours for more possibilities.

Stand up Paddle boarding is a fantastic way to feel fit and have fun. It doesn’t matter if you’re experienced or a novice–if you fall in, the water is warm. See what it’s like to walk on water in the company of dolphins and manatee. It could be one of those life-changing experiences. Please see Super Eco Adventures for specifics.

Honest John’s Fish Camp is a local treasure. The legacy of an honest man who loved to fish lives on here, run by his grandchildren. This is a good place to rent a fishing boat and learn about the local waters and fish. You’ll also see wonderful wildlife.

Come explore the quiet side of Florida. Get out in nature. Keep it real by lodging in a Melbourne Beach, Florida Bed and Breakfast.
