The world-class Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course, just two miles away from Arcadia, is a 245-acre daily-fee club open to the public 7 days a week from mid-April through mid-November. The facility is designed to foster enjoyment in guests of all golfing abilities, with a premier 18-hole layout, full practice range, and separate short-game facility.

Heathlands Golf Course is 10 minutes away, Crystal Lake Golf Club is 15 minutes away, and Crystal Mountain is 26 minutes away with two courses and a water slide. For an eventful and diverse golfing experience, you could practically try a new golf course every day! <br/><br/>As for fishing, deep water close to shallow water in nearby Lake Michigan brings seasonal runs of brown trout, a few chinook, and coho salmon.

There is parking for 15 vehicles. <br/><br/>For more exploring, take a drive on the beautiful M-22 loop, recently voted "America's Number One Best Scenic Autumn Drive" by 10Best and USA Today. This stretch of road is pretty in every season and will take you to wineries, art galleries, and numerous small towns along Lake Michigan's coast full of friendly Michiganders!

Arcadia is home to Arcadia Daze every July as well as Inspiration Point, the highest point (and the best view) on the shore of Lake Michigan. Manistee, the county seat, is known for the historic Ramsdell Theater, 1.5 mile Riverwalk, and the Little River Casino. Each year, it holds a Forest Festival on July 4th and Old Christmas Weekend in early December. Onekama is known as the "Two Lake Town" as it offers shoreline along Lake Michigan as well as the peaceful Portage Lake. It also has restaurants, antique shops, a farmer's market, and a Fall Festival each October. Just north of Frankfort is the famously picturesque Point Betsie Lighthouse, but you will want to stop first in this quiet town and enjoy the large Victorian houses along tree-lined streets amid galleries, specialty shops, and waterfront restaurants. <br/><br/>Farther along M-22 is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, listed on CNN Travel's list of "20 Can't-Miss Beaches" and named "The Most Beautiful Place in America" by ABC's Good Morning America viewers! With 35 miles along Lake Michigan, two islands, 21 inland lakes, 400-foot sand dunes, hiking and biking trails, and the Maritime Museum, this park brings in over a million visitors each year. If you take M-22 all the way up and around Leelanau County through more beautiful locations and charming small towns, you'll end up in Traverse City, the Cherry Capital of Northern Michigan and one of America's Top 10 Beach Towns (by Fodor's Travel Guides). This area is home to 34 wineries; golf championship courses with designs by pros; premier spas; baseball; the National Cherry Festival lasting 8 days every July including concerts, a crafts fair, a vehicle show, parades, and fireworks; the Traverse City Film Festival in July-August, one of the largest film festivals in the Midwest; and the Taste of Traverse City event each September.

In season, most guests like to keep all the French doors open for a real sense of outdoor living. The front deck is a great spot for dining al fresco while enjoying views of happy travelers out for a taste of the sun, and even a lovely view of Tampa Bay across the street. A heated pool and hot tub are perched canalside, with a large open patio that's the perfect place for a picnic. An upstairs deck overlooks this area, offering lovely views down the canal to Bimini Bay.<br/><br/>Inside the house on the first level you'll find a bedroom that can be made up as two twins, or as one king-size bed. Tell us when you book which you'd like, and our housekeeping staff will take care of the setup. Another bedroom at the front of the house features a daybed with trundle, along with a built-in twin on the other side of the room, a large walk-in closet, and en suite bath with walk-in shower. This bedroom has French doors that open directly onto the large front deck, allowing refreshing breezes into every corner.<br/><br/>Upstairs you'll find a master bedroom with a queen bed, en suite bath with walk-in shower, and a private deck boasting fabulous views over Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway bridge. Be sure to watch for the big cruise ships on their way out to sea; it's fun to imagine where they might be traveling!<br/><br/>Ready for a salt-water swim and the feel of sand between your toes? The beautiful white-sand beach and crystal-clear waters of Tampa Bay are just across the street. The water here is shallow with a sandy bottom, so it's usually a great place to swim with children, or just float on the smooth waters. Fishermen love to wade out a distance from the shore and cast their lines, while shell-seekers know they're likely to find something special in this relatively unpopulated section of the beach. The charming Historic Anna Maria City Pier is just 200 yards down the beach.<br/><br/>When the shopping bug bites, or you feel like eating out, you can walk to Anna Maria's restaurants and shops, as well as the Historic Society Museum and Community Playhouse. Ready for something a bit further afield? Catch the free Island Trolley to travel the length of the island from 6 am to 10 pm. Get off anywhere to access the Gulf beaches, walk as far down the beach as you'd like, and then catch the trolley for a ride home...all you need is shoes to get on and off the island's favorite mode of transportation.<br/><br/>Sleeps 7. Small dogs considered with a non-refundable pet fee. Stays of less than one week may be available depending on time of year.

Looking for an absolutely charming spot to spend your vacation, perhaps something a bit unexpected? Tucked away behind lush privacy hedges is Hidden Cottage, a gem that will transport you away from your cares and into a relaxing Florida vacation. <br/><br/>Hidden Cottage is nestled on Camino Real (pronounced cah-MEE-no ray-AL), a lovely street just to the mainland side of the north bridge onto Siesta Key. When newcomers to Sarasota started to build homes in the 1920's, Spanish Colonial architecture was all the rage, and streets often took their names to reflect that influence. Literally translated "Royal Road," Camino Real today is home to many original cottages and gorgeous newer homes. Its true gem is The Field Club, located at the south end of the street. Built by Marshall Field III on the banks of Sarasota Bay, it's a breathtaking example of the Spanish Colonial style.<br/><br/>As you enjoy the drive down this historic street, don't miss the arched entry carved out of tropical foliage. Turn onto the curving brick-paved driveway and discover a hidden oasis! You'll find yourself surrounded by a gorgeous assortment of tropical foliage, all native to the Florida landscape. Fruit-bearing trees offer papayas, avocados, oranges, lemons, and mangoes. Bougainvillea and jasmine bloom during much of the year, and a spectacular Royal Poinciana tree crowns the property with gorgeous red blooms in May and June. <br/><br/>The main cottage includes its original wood floors, plus a remodeled kitchen filled with a gourmet's pick of European appliances, including a gas range, double-drawer dishwasher, and French door refrigerator. Although there's a dining area for eating inside, your favorite place to eat will undoubtedly be the screened patio, with dining for six and a large gas grill. <br/><br/>The main cottage also features two bedrooms, each with an en suite bath. The master bedroom and bathroom offer a king bed, flat-panel TV, spa tub, walk-in shower, and direct access to the screened patio, while the second bedroom features a queen bed and a large collection of books for your reading enjoyment.<br/>A separate guest cottage with a queen bed, full bath, flat-panel TV, and small kitchenette is located across the way. Separated from the main house by the beautiful free-form pool and spa, it's the perfect spot for members of your group who might want a bit more privacy. <br/><br/>The pool, designed to give the feel of a hidden natural lagoon, is surrounded by white bird of paradise, bougainvillea, and colorful crotons. It's the perfect spot for sunning and relaxing. <br/><br/>When you're ready to explore the area, it's an easy 4-mile drive or bike ride to Siesta Key village and the beaches. The attractions of Sarasota also await: known as a cultural center, you'll find a world-famous botanical garden, theater productions, opera, and the renowned Ringling Museum complex just a short distance away. <br/><br/>Sleeps up to 7 in one king, two queens, and one full-size sleeper sofa.

Boaters will love the dock available for their use...bring your own, or rent one while you're here. This deep waterway provides direct access to Clearwater Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Pack your cooler, head out the back door, hop on board your boat tied up at the dock, and take a leisurely cruise up the harbor to Caladesi Island State Park. As one of the few completely natural islands along Florida´s Gulf Coast, Caladesi´s white sand beaches were rated America's Best Beach in 2008. Beach lovers can enjoy swimming, sunbathing and beachcombing, saltwater anglers can cast a line from their boats or surf fish from the beach, and nature enthusiasts can spot wildlife while hiking the three mile nature trail through the island's interior, or paddling a three mile kayak trail through the mangroves and bay. <br/><br/>A little further up the harbor is Honeymoon State Park. Nature lovers will find osprey nests, a wide variety of shorebirds, and one of the few remaining virgin slash pine forests in South Florida. The park boasts several nature trails and bird observation areas. This is another terrific spot to swim, fish, and snorkel in the warm waters of the Gulf. Shelling is particularly good here, as the Gulf currents deposit an incredible variety of seashells on the shore.<br/><br/>Ready for a party? A trip in your boat can also take you down the harbor to the action of Clearwater Beach. Although it's been around for 100 years, Clearwater is an up-to-the-moment year-round destination, offering a seemingly endless supply of entertainment, natural beauty, and outdoor activities both on land and at sea. Enjoy casual and fine dining, vibrant activities and the rich history and heritage of the Gulf Coast, all from your backyard!<br/><br/>Of course, if boating isn't your thing, you'll still enjoy the waterfront pool at your home-away-from-home, and the easy access by bike or on foot to all the fun things to do and beautiful beaches to visit in Clearwater. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter the dolphin, is on your route to the beach! <br/><br/>So don't delay...you'll be so glad you booked Island Retreat for your Clearwater vacation!

And if you like to see the water, you can't find a better spot than this wonderful two-bedroom, two-bath ground floor condo in Seaside Gardens, where the water is so close, you may forget you're still on land!<br/><br/>This charming unit features a newly remodeled kitchen that opens to the dining area. There is comfortable seating in the living room with a whole wall of beautiful views of the water.<br/><br/>The Master bedroom has a queen bed, a walk-in closet, an en suite bath with a tub/shower combo supplied with plenty of fluffy towels and linens, and great water views of the sunrise. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, as well as walk-in closets, twin beds and a television. The laundry room is outside the front entrance. Villa Roma sleeps up to 4 guests.<br/><br/>Seaside Gardens is a friendly community located in the heart of Holmes Beach, offering loads of choices right at your doorstep. Walk to the library, shops, restaurants, and the beach, or go a bit further afield by hopping on the free Island Trolley; the northbound line stops right at the end of the street. A ride on the trolley will connect you to shops and restaurants on Pine Avenue, the Anna Maria Historical Society Museum, the Island Players Theater, the historic Anna Maria City Pier, and lots more opportunities to hit our gorgeous beaches. <br/><br/>From your unit you can also walk into Holmes Beach and catch the southbound trolley for a visit to Bradenton Beach and historic Bridge Street, or take a stroll on the miles of beachfront paths that run along Coquina Beach. You might also decide to connect to other lines that can take you to Longboat Key, St. Armands Circle, and the artistic options available in downtown Sarasota. <br/><br/>If a water adventure is your style, bring your kayaks and launch them right off your personal dock. The dock also happens to be a great place to fish. Bringing your own boat? The Holmes Beach public boat launch is conveniently located next door. <br/><br/>You don't have to be a boater or a fisherman, however, to enjoy the beauty of Villa Roma's water views. The large patio is likely to become your favorite spot for relaxation and soaking up the sun. It's also a great spot for bird-watching, and is a favorite with the elegant birds of prey and sea birds.
