Eustis house description

This 1,600 sf, one bedroom loft home is on beautiful Lake Dorr in the Ocala National Forest. The home has a spacious, open floor plan with a loft bedroom that overlooks the living and dining room areas. The huge windows on the lakeside offer a picturesque view of the property and pristine lake front where you'll enjoy gorgeous sunrises and moonlit evenings. There is also plenty of wildlife to see...turkey, deer, lots of birds and even an occassional bear sighting. Evenings are a great time to sit outside and listen to the sounds of the forest. The most mesmerizing one is the echoing sounds of the owls hooting at night. It's a perfect retreat for outdoor enthusiasts who love to boat, canoe, kayak, fish, hike, bike or horse back ride. So whether you are here to enjoy the outdoors or spend the day exploring the area's attractions, we have the perfect vacation rental home for you.

You are in a safe neighborhood on a 30-acre private estate. There are nearby grocery stores, and you’re a short drive to Eustis and Mt. Dora. Orlando, Ocala, The Villages, Leesburg, Daytona are within an hour drive. There are plenty of natural springs nearby that are within 15-40 mins. You can also spend the day at Kennedy Space Center, St. Augustine, several of the Atlantic beaches or head for the Gulf of Mexico. You are centrally located.

Out of courtesy for our other patrons smoking and pets are not allowed. Sorry, no exceptions.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Bill & Vicki Rogers - We decided to move to this area because we were tired of the hustle and bustle of living in a larger city, Clearwater, FL. For eight years, we traveled all over the state of Florida looking for that perfect place. This property was such a paradise, we knew this is where we needed to be. It is a 30 acre estate with a main house and guest house. We are located adjacent to the Ocala National Forest on a 1,700 acre private lake, yet only a short distance from great restaurants, shopping and attractions. We are centrally located and truly have the best of both worlds!

                  Why the Owner Chose Eustis:
                  This estate is our retirement home. The view as you enter the property is breath-taking. It's in a great neighborhood, and the property is centrally located but also away from constant traffic and noise. We enjoy star gazing, and there's no bright city lights, so you can really see the stars. We love this lake because it is large enough to ski, fish, etc., but yet it is still a hidden gem with little traffic. From the boat dock, we've watched many shuttles take off from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. We can sit down by the lake and relax and unwind, yet be in touch with nature as the bald eagles soar by. We also enjoy fishing on the lake. Most importantly, we enjoy exercising and can walk or ride bicycle on either the paved roads or the trails.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There are plenty of things to do. Horseback riding in the Ocala National Forest is available within 5 minutes. You'll love visiting the natural springs. Bring your bicycle or walk to adjacent trails. You can spend part of your day on a canoe trip around the lake or you can go fishing right off of the dock. Spend your day at the attractions in Orlando and come home to retire in a beautiful, relaxing setting.
