There’s a pot-of-gold richness to Florida’s Nature Coast, as if a “no Mickey Mouse, no Miami Beach” plea has been answered. Indeed, this is authentic Old Florida: moss-draped rivers; warm-water springs where manatees gather; peaceful environs best seen by boat and boot. A deer or two might even graze near the cottage porch at sundown as a Road Scholar adventurer in a rocking chair rewinds the day’s learning. The delightfully simple Chinsegut Hill Retreat’s 115 acres are the pleasant and cheerful base for educational forays to kayak or hike, engage in topics from Florida conservation to endangered wildlife, or simply revel in experiencing this quiet paradise together. You’re going to feel right at home.
