We needed a quiet place to escape the everyday world. Base on the reviews I read online, this seemed to fit the bill. We arrived to find a very clean and comfortable waterfront cottage as described. We were on the lake, near the marina and next to a large fire-pit area. The view was superb....beautiful trees lined the lake. We...

Stayed in cabin 4, right on the lake. Super clean! Nice get away just hours from home but a whole different world. Just what the doctor ordered! Quiet and peaceful, super friendly owners and staff. I really didn't want to leave.

We decided that we needed to get away from the big city for a couple days and do nothing. I was looking for someplace away from population that had cabins to rent and was on the water. I found the Moonrise Resort on line and said this was the place. Don't let the name fool you. If your looking for...

Moonrise Resort is on a wonderful lake on the west coast of Florida. Perfect for fishing, canoeing and motor boating . Our cabin was so clean when we arrived, I felt right at home. The surrounding were very peaceful. I didn't catch any fish but I never do, lol. Come here to unwind from life. Two very nice towns within...

We thoroughly enjoyed our get away St Moonrise Resort. Quaint cottage but the modern amenities. The grounds are well tended and you just can't wait beat being on the lake! Campfire, grills, bench swings. boats and docks available or just chill on your own screened porch.

Moonrise has RV sites as well as cabins. I spent one night there in my small RV and can't recommend it. The other reviews were for the few cabins which are on the lake. The rest of the place is comprised of random RVs, trailers and mobile homes mostly of older vintage. Most of the RVs were there on a...

Just happened to run across this place online. So glad we did!! The cabins were immaculate! I am very picky about cleanliness and what not but it exceeded my expectations. The view from our cabin was spectacular. Very quiet place, friendly people, wonderful owners. We had such a great time we came back several months later and purchased a weekend...

Spent 2 night in cabin 6. Cute place, little hard to describe. Its sort of an RV park meets retirement village with cabins. Perfect for us visiting family nearby. The cabin is fully stocked with an updated kitchen and spacious living room. Nice screened in porch to get away from the mosquitos and watch the lake. Friendly people and a...

We have been coming to Moonrise Resort for the last seven years. The cabins have all of the amenities of home all you need to bring is clothes and pickup food. They have 5 piers that you can fish from and park your boat at if you bring it. You can also rent a pontoon boat, use rowboat or paddle...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Moonrise Resort sits on 9,000 acres of the shoreline of Lake Tsala Apopka. Travel back to the "Old Florida" with breath taking views. It is very quiet and peaceful. Five cabins are within 50' of the waters edge, with the last cabin only 200' from the lake. Each cabin is like a small house. They each have a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and screened in porch. They also have a patio with a picnic table and BBQ grill. Every cabin is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home. A boat launch and fishing docks are also available. We are a pet friendly establishment for an additional fee. There is a community fire pit, with plenty of firewood for campfires. Complementary canoe and row boats are available for guests use. Pontoon boats are available for an additional fee. The outstanding 46 mile Withlacoochee State Trail is located across from our entrance. This is a prefect getaway for families, couples, and guys and girls getaways. Many great restaurants are within 1-3 miles. ... more   less
