  • Great location


    We enjoy how close this property is to Bok Tower and the fact that it has a beautiful, quiet location on a lake. The home is clean and well-stocked with towels, cooking supplies, novels to read, and a piano! (My only problem came when it was time to check out and I struggled to see the numbers on the lock box in the dark, but that is probably as much my aging eyes as anything!) Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us. Looking forward to staying here again.

  • Lovely Spot


    The Lakehouse was the perfect spot to relax, enjoy the quite and watch the wildlife! An older Florida home, this place was clean and comfortable! Watch the lake activity and the sky! A perfect place to relax and unwind!

  • A wonderful 2 weeks of R&R!


    We have stayed in several vacation rentals across the country so we have learned to bring certain items like laundry soap & plastic food storage containers with us – not needed at the Lake House. Bill & Sandra thought of everything and more.

    We soaked in the Florida warmth surrounded by the peacefulness of the lake. The variety of birds that visited included egrets, sandhill cranes, & gulls that gathered on the lake every day in late afternoon.

    We brought a couple of books with us but never opened them as we found 100s of books here to enjoy. In fact, if you can’t find something to read, then you just don’t like to read!

    The location of the Lake House gives way to many day trip possibilities – 1 hour to Tampa or 1.5 hours to Vero Beach or Mt. Dora.

    Thank you for a wonderful 2 weeks of R&R!

  • Welcoming charm makes for great family memories!


    Bill and Sandra,

    What a joy to stay at the Lake House. Its welcoming charm sets a perfect stage for making great memories with the family and the peaceful setting makes for great R&R.

    Your Lake House is clean, well-furnished, and very comfortable. The beautiful lake view and multiple days of sunshine can’t be beat. Wish we could stay to see the turtles hatch.

    Loved every minute here. Sad to leave! ☹ Thank you for sharing.

    Sherry & Martin, Gracie, Dick & Marty, Ida.
