Melrose house description

Come stay in our private home on beautiful Lake Santa Fe. Our home is open to travelers just passing through or looking for a week long getaway. You will enjoy a retreat like setting in this custom lake-front home with a spacious living area, separated game room, and private dock. In the living area, enjoy a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of seating including a large sectional for comfortable lounging while watching the game or a movie (via Netflix or Blu-ray disc) on the 50' flat screen television.

The large covered screen room provides a perfect setting for enjoying your morning coffee and home cooked breakfast. A built in gas grill can also be found on the screen porch, providing easy access rain or shine, for that grill master in your party.

For those rainy afternoons, make your way to the attached game room which includes a wet bar, full size pool table, ping pong, and an assortment of games or puzzles to choose from as well as its own big screen television.

Step out of the screen room onto the back porch and into the yard where you can play your favorite lawn games or continue on down to the water and enjoy the private dock and beach area which provide ample room for swimming, boating or just relaxing in the sun.
The property sits on the east side of one of the largest lakes in Florida with breath taking sunsets year round. Quoted by world renowned biologist, Tom Morris to be 'the Queen of Florida lakes'; Lake Santa Fe is a 5,850-acre (2,370 ha) spring-fed lake that offers abundant wildlife, excellent fishing and recreational boating with two public boat ramps only minutes away. Our guests enjoy the serenity of a quiet getaway with all the necessary conveniences only a short drive away.
