We stayed in the Capt. Quarter's on the St. John's River at Hontoon Landing and Resort. FANTASTIC stay. Nice size pool, room was spacious and riverview amazing. We had breakfast one morning. Cook/owner a little grumpy but that didn't stop us. Amazing view and wildlife. Thank you for an amazing stay.

Amazing day of seeing the park and the birds and Gators! Stopped in the state park to see manatee as well. Renting the boat was wonderful to really see the park. People are great! Nice little gift shop. Easy access

We rented the hummingbird cottage and found it quite nice. Housekeeping did a fine job keeping the cottage nice. The bedroom and bath were a little small but manageable. I don't like hard mattresses and the found the cottage mattress to be very hard. My back started aching after one night. The staff at the resort and the marina were...

We stayed for two nights in cottage 3. My whole experience at Hontoon Landing was all better than I had expected--always a welcome outcome. Our cottage was very clean, and equipped with everything we needed. The photos of Hontoon Landing are accurate, but everything is even better than pictured. The whole experience here is extremely peaceful and serene. The river...

Our family spent a delightful Thanksgiving weekend there. We rented a pontoon boat had a nice picnic on Hontoon Island, did some fishing, and got away from it all for a very relaxing Thanksgiving. The food there was great, management and staff very very friendly! Would definitely go there again!

What a hidden gem this is.... Deb is the owner, chef and manager and is delightful. The food is incredible and homemade. I cannot get enough of the soups that she makes. the wraps are delicious and the Ruben is one of the best I have eaten. Yesterday I had the Ahi Tuna salad that was the best dish yet....

Sandy, thank you so much. We are excited about our new Deli and our Chef Deb thanks you as well. The Deli is a gem that Deland is discovering. Deb always has little surprises with her daily specials.

My wife and I stayed at Hontoon Landing after a day at nearby Blue Springs and Hontoon Island State Park. It is central to many state parks and just out side of Deland.

We had our annual visit to Hontoon Landing Resort & Marina last weekend to watch the Boat Parade. Our rooms were on the second floor, affording us a great view of the lake and parade.
