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!

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.

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.

We have been visiting Hontoon Landing to hire a pontoon for at least 10-15 years and it never disappoints! The staff are helpful and friendly.
