My wife and I planned to visit Weeki Wachee park (mermaid show about 20 miles away) but we wanted a nice quiet place. The Rod 'n' Nod was just perfect. Pretty setting on a canal that feeds into a lake. Quiet, pretty, comfortable. John, the owner, is pleasant, helpful, and unobtrusive. We took the provided canoe out around the lake...

I agree with all the reviews! This is a great place. Bring your kayak and you'll be in the river in seconds. Nothing fancy, but everything you need for a nice getaway. Great location, great hosts, and a wonderfully comfortable king-size bed. Super stay!

What a great place!!! John, the owner is a great guy. The motor canoe is the best thing, manatees will come right up to you. I've been several times and am planning my next stay now. A great place to just..breathe. Thanks John!!

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place, on the water, to just relax and unplug. Rod 'N Nod was the perfect resting spot. John, the proprietor, could not have been more gracious and accomodating. Although John was literally right next door you would never have known it other than things were magically manicured and tended to. The...

Very nice and comfortable acommodations right on the water. Living area with complete kitchen is a big plus and use of boat (a gheenoe) makes a stay at the Rod n Nod a terrific value. Hosts John and John Sr are very pleasant and helpful (listen to John's tips on where to fish!). Also just a short walk to the...

My family just can not get enough of this place. Homosassa is "Old Florida" at its best and the Rod N Nod has become our home away from home. John does a fantastic job at making your stay as comfortable as possible. His units have all the creature comforts you could possibly need. I'm fortunate to travel to many exotic...

My wife, father, and I had an excellent experience at the Rod N Nod. The quiet setting on the canal has very good access for kayaks, canoes and boats. We were cool and comfortable with ALL of the ammenaties of home. There were manatees, dolphin and birds around and it was nice to just relax on the porch and enjoy...

I have stayed at Rod n' Nod twice. It was great. It is two houses connected by a tiki lounge. It is right on the water (a canal off a large river)-we saw manatee and dolphins swim right by our place-3 feet away from us! We have stayed in both apartments-the smaller one is really best for 2 adults, maybe...

I took some friends from England to hopefully see "the real Florida". None of us could believe the beauty, general ambience (and hospitality of our host), coupled with unbelievable relaxation! We were treated to a comfortable and clean place to stay, with MANY extras, not least of which was a boat trip on the river (where OVER 24 manatee swam...

Our stay at Rod n Nod was awesome, very quiet, very comfortable and very clean. Our host "John" bent over backwards to make sure we were happy during our stay. There was nothing better than sitting out on the deck in the morning with coffee and watching the manatee swim through the canal. We look foward to our next stay....
