Florida Travel in Marion County for the perfect Bed & Breakfast. A mother’s job is never over when the day ends. A mother wears more than one hat which includes being a cook, a doctor, a nurse, a teacher, a housekeeper, and so much more. Do you ever wonder when you get to relax? When I can’t get the much-needed rest and relaxation that I need, I am not a mom you want to be around. Taking time for yourself is important to not only your health but for your family as well. Instead of catering to kids all day, washing dishes, and folding the laundry, I take one day a year to pamper myself. I mean when you’re a mom, you have to do it for yourself because no one else will do it, right?! Marion County’s fabulous Bed & Breakfast locations have become my home away from home. There are some fabulous options for getting the much-needed rest and relaxation you need and deserve. So, moms treat yourself any day with my top Ocala/Marion County Lodging choices:
Shamrock Thistle & Crown Bed & Breakfast:
If you love the countryside, Shamrock Thistle & Crown B&B is one of the most beautiful. This 3-story B&B is on top of a hill giving you a picturesque of the rolling countryside below. Not only is it stunning, but you get a full breakfast in a formal dining room which includes Eggs Benedict (fully cooked I might add), Belgian Waffles, Decadent French Toast, Pancakes and anything you could possibly want to drink. This Victorian beauty is fully equipped with:
- A spa (my personal favorite)
- A fireplace
- A King Bed
- A Home Theatre System
With silver springs, canoeing, hiking, and biking only 18 minutes away at Ocala National Forest, there’s a ton of things to do in the countryside. However, if I want to go shopping or out on the town, it’s only minutes away from Villages Town Square.
Country Chalet Inn
Country Chalet Inn is an elegant 7-room property in seated in the hillside of Florida. What I love about this place are the horse farms that surround the property. The Country Chalet gives you the country surrounding while making you feel like you’re in an upscale hotel. It is not too far away from the Gulf of Mexico, and some of my favorite activities: biking, kayaking, airboat rides, fishing, and hiking trails. Here’s what you get at Country Chalet Inn:
- Indoor fireplace (so romantic)
- All Amenities
- Cable TV (of course you need to appease the husband)
With city life not far off and the beauty of the country, I just can imagine I would love staying at Country Chalet Inn.
The Nest on Lake Weir
As a mom nothing is quite as relaxing as watching the sunset on the waterfront of Lake Weir. Starry nights, beautiful sunsets, lake views, and acres of white sandy beach make your stay at the Nest on Lake Weir worth every bit of planning. One thing I really enjoy about the Nest on Lake Weir is that they offer a way for you to rent all 11 rooms (the whole cottage). Many times, I like my Mother’s Day getaways, but sometimes I would like to spend time with all of my family, and still enjoy the rich luxury of breakfast in bed. The Nest on Lake Weir gives me just that with great amenities such as:
- Use of kayaks
- Beach chairs with umbrella and beach towels
- Shared lakefront deck
- Gas firepit on the beach
- Continental Breakfast in my room
- Jacuzzi tubs
Not only is this a haven of luxury and beauty, but there are an array of things to do as the cottage is only a short distance away from so many outdoor adventures and many serene views!
