Jean Thornton purchased this house in 2000

Why Jean Thornton chose Florida

This house has a lot of space for large groups. It is a quiet location with a fenced yard but it isn't far to drive to attractions ranging from Disney to the Pioneer Village.

What makes this house unique

De Leon Springs State Park is nearby which is a wonderful place to see the waterfall, birds and orchids and make stoneground pancakes right at your table


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay in this house was outstanding. It was the perfect location for my husband and I to be able to visit with our Florida family. It was quite a bit bigger then we really needed but it was nice to be able to have a place to cook and play board games with our kids and grandkids. The owner was very gracious allowing our three grandchildren to visit the beautiful horses and even let them feed them out of their hands. The house was very clean and well equipped with kitchen supplies and bedding. We will definitely stay here in the future and would highly recommend it to others.

Great for small youth group.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 5 of my FFA officers - we needed a large house with a big yard, far enough from the school to make it special without having to spend hours on the road. The house was awesome, plenty of room for a larger officer team but it was nice for us to have the extra room. We were able to use one table for our planning activities and the other for meals. There was plenty of room outside for a variety of team building games and activities. The home owner offered the use of the pool at their residence but we did not take advantage of it.

It was a short drive to the grocery store for the officers to complete their meal planning challenge and to DeLeon Springs State Park for a morning of pictures, canoeing and swimming.

The owner is very pleasant to work with and responded to any questions we had quickly.

We enjoyed our stay at Jean's house. She was easy and great to work with. She was attentive to our questions. The house was exactly what our family needed. It was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and the horses. I would highly recommend this house to others.

I thank Ms. Jean for hospitality and genuine concern for comfort. The house was clean and rooms very spacious, friendly neighbors and plenty of yard for kids to play. Nice fence-in area with plenty of terrain to setup anything, i.e. jumping castle or any other bulky entertainments. The air conditioning seem to work fine but it need a little more tweaking, the house was a little to warm for us, fix or upgrade will help significantly in comfort. Thank you Jean for your attention

We had a great experience with our children, spouses and grandchildren. The house was spacious and we each had our own bedroom and there were plenty of bathrooms. We really enjoyed swimming in the pool at the owner's house. We also enjoyed petting the beautiful horses. We were out in the country but only a few miles from restaurants and Publix! It was a very relaxing weekend! I would recommend this house to families that want to stay together. It was much better than three families staying in hotel rooms and trying to enjoy time together. We were all together and it was so special to us!
