Our Story
Discover the natural beauty of Florida!
Let's go Lily Paddling!

We spend our days canoeing and kayaking the waterways of Florida.
We often invite folks to join us at The Lily Pad... 
If you have your own canoe or kayak, great! If not, we have extras.

We have been canoeing and kayaking Florida for over a decade.
We know and love the rivers of Florida!

Although we still occassionally camp out...we usually prefer a roof over our heads. It's the little things - like a coffee maker, fridge, temperature control, kitchen and a hot shower - that keep us happy, especially after a long day on the river!

In the past, we stayed at rental cabins or camp sites when paddling Florida.
...not always available when we were ready to go on a canoe trip. 
No problemo, now there is 'the Lily Pad' - our alternative to Florida camping or hotel rooms - and it's on Lake Santa Fe!

We love to paddle, talk, cook, and entertain.
What are you waiting for? Come see us!

Our 2005 construction project has finally been completed!!! 
We now have three guest bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living rooms, a new entertaining kitchen & dining room, on the lake, with  dock and plenty of parking.

Bring your fishing pole when you visit us, if you want to fish!
