Geneva Florida Bed and Breakfasts are located in East Central Florida. Geneva is on Route 46 between Lake Harney and Lake Jesup in Seminole County.  Just beyond Orlando’s theme parks, Geneva puts you within some of the best natural attractions Florida has to offer. From enjoying birding trails to canoeing wild rivers, to spotting gators on an airboat tour Geneva puts nature nearer.  Pristine waterways plus acres of beautiful parkland are yours to explore.  Anglers will thrill to Florida's best freshwater fishing.


The area was once home to the Timucuan tribe and Naturalist William Bartram explored the area in the 18th Century.  Geneva was once called "Harney Cove" after a military leader, Colonel Harney


Geneva derived it’s name form a lady who was from Geneva, New York .   Emma Van Brunt Wilcox is said to have thought that Harney Cove (what the Geneva area was originally called) looked like her native Geneva, New York.


Geneva's Tie to the Lincoln Conspiracy.  Rumors abound about the person (skull) buried in the Geneva Cemetery who was involved in the Lincoln Conspiracy.  That person is Lewis Thornton Powell.   


The area where "Fort Lane" was located is now Fort Lane Park, owned and operated by the Geneva Historical and Genealogical Society, Inc.   This beautiful park overlooks Lake Harney and the St. Johns River and is open to everyone for public use.  


The very first Seminole County Historical Marker was erected at the Fort Lane Park.  The Sieg Pavilion, donated by the W. L. Sieg family, was dedicated in 1966, has a view of the lake and is screened with picnic tables, refrigerator, and overhead fans.  There are also restrooms and picnic tables on the grounds.   Fort Lane Park is an ideal place for family reunions, picnics, casual weddings, outdoor events, primitive camping, etc.  There is an outside fire ring for group campfires. 


Lake Harney.  A 6,058-acre lake with an excellent bass and crappie fishery in early spring, as well as good bream fishing in late spring and summer.  There is also Puzzle Lake near Geneva, which forms the border of Volusia and Seminole counties. It is one of the lakes that make up the St. Johns River system.    Lake Proctor Wilderness Area has more than six miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails and The Ed Yarborough Nature Center is located in the 180-acre Geneva Wilderness Area in East Seminole County.
