What better way to spend your Florida vacation than to feel as though you’re returning home each night?  Experience the cuisine, nightlife, and nature that Central Florida has to offer, while forgoing the overcrowded, noisy hotel experience in favor of a cozy, comfortably-furnished vacation retreat. 

1903 Hontoon is a gorgeously-appointed vacation rental home located on Lake Beresford, which feeds directly into the St. John’s River and is surrounded by Florida’s beautiful natural landscape and captivating wildlife.  Whether your tastes are epicurean, eco-minded, or eclectic, the area around 1903 Hontoon offers something for everyone.  We are located just minutes away from historic downtown DeLand, FL, which boasts gourmet food, craft beers, and a vast shopping selection; just minutes in the other direction is Hontoon Island State Park, which can only be reached by boat or park-operated ferry.  Here you’ll find a vast selection of Florida’s native wildlife, campgrounds, bike trails, and kayak rentals. 

If you’re interested in exploring some of Central Florida’s more well-known tourist destinations, 1903 Hontoon is located approximately 25 minutes from New Smyrna Beach, 35 minutes from Daytona Beach, and an hour from Orlando’s theme parks and shopping attractions.  But don’t forget to explore DeLand! This small town packs a lot of activity into a small surface area.


Downtown DeLand is home to numerous top-rated restaurants, and you can find pretty much every type of cuisine – including Greek, Thai, Italian, BBQ, and much more.  If you consider yourself a foodie, you’ll love exploring DeLand’s hidden gems. 


Whether you’re diving tastes tend toward sky or sea, you’ll find plenty of both near 1903 Hontoon.  Skydive DeLand is the skydive training capital of the world, hosting military and sport teams from around the world throughout the year. They also offer dive opportunities for both novice and experienced skydivers.  Blue Springs State Park in nearby Orange City, FL is a mecca for both scuba diving and free diving, and during the winter months you can see the great manatee migration as the manatees search out the warmer waters of the springs when the ocean temperatures start to drop. 


When you’ve finished exploring all that DeLand, the beaches, and Orlando has to offer, return to 1903 Hontoon and relax in one of 5 well-appointed bedrooms, our beautiful deck overlooking Lake Beresford, or the comfortable main living area. We highly recommend taking advantage of Florida’s beautiful waterways and renting a boat for the duration of your stay.  1903 Hontoon comes equipped with – you guessed it – your very own boat launch and docks.
