The living room has a wonderful bay window. There wooden plantation shutters throughout the home, hardwood floors, leather sofa bed (queen), cozy chairs, built-in electric fireplace, large flat screen 37' TV with cable & wireless internet.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: John & Sharon own four vacation rentals in Lake City. They all feature a 'coastal theme' as they believe there is nothing more soothing and more comforting than to be near the water in a cozy, coastal home with lots of space and lots of family & friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
                      All three of the 'vacation rentals' are within a few hundred feet of each other. Two properties are back to back and are separated by a cute picket fence but connected by a gate. Occasionally, large groups choose to rent both homes as they can walk from one home to the other in about 30 seconds.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Because this property can sleep up to 12 and offers options; it can be configured to meet your needs. It is very attractive to larger groups who need space and beds. It's perfect for that family reunion, girl friend getaways or that multiple family gathering.
