Ocklawaha house description

Beautiful lake front cottage offers sand beach on clear lake with expansive deck for lots of outside entertaining. Deck is canopied by a huge, century oak tree and rain tree for a shady oasis. Enjoy the shady deck, stroll on the private dock or feed the ducks and lake birds. Relax in the glider at the end of the dock while you view the sunset. If you're a sunbather, the white sand beach will beacon you to sit in the lounge chairs and enjoy the lap of the lake's waves. The clear water is perfect for swimming, fishing, boating, waterskiing or jet skiing.

The kitchen is completely equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal including dishwasher, refrigerator and ice maker, microwave oven and stove. Small appliance include mixer, blender, juicer, crock pot and more.

The gas grill is new and we supply the gas! There's also a cozy hammock just waiting for you.

Both bedrooms have new, queen-size beds and bedding -- two queen pull-out sofa sleepers are perfect for overnight company. We supply all the linens -- just bring your clothes and toothbrush!

Near The Villages and the Orlando attractions, this is the perfect place to serve as your headquarters in Central Florida while you explore the rest of the state or play rounds of golf at the many championship golf courses in the area.

Leave the snow and ice behind and spend the fall at our lake house. We give discounts to long term renters! This is our family home and we'd love to share it with you.

It was owned by my father and now myself, my husband, David Bachus and my brother own the property. We have spent time updating our home and keeping it warm and friendly. We are committed to raising our grandchildren here and want others to enjoy it when we can't.
