We found the house is nice and in a nice setting. Unfortunately the home needs work related to the plumbing in the kitchen and bathrooms(toilets). The clothes dryer did not work and did not dry our clothes. We found the place to be extremely dusty with dust balls all over the house. It was the only place I could find in the area for short term rental that would fit our needs but I would not recommend it.

Owner response: I am very saddened by this review. I was NOT aware of the dryer not performing properly, or dust bunnies under bed ( these things you need to bring to an owners attention during your visit, not after). There is a brand new one in now. I am also sorry for the dust under the bed?( I inspected the home and found it to be beautifully cleaned, guess I missed the bed) I have a professional house keeper who must have had a bad day? I am more saddened you did not experience the GREAT factors this home has to offer,such as tranquility of beautiful sunrises, the upgrades/coziness of the home, the timer candles that illuminate the home at dusk, the resident ducks, and yes the PEACE and JOY it has brought so many others. I can only pray you can find what you are looking for in the future. :(
My wife and I were looking for a special place to enjoy a long week-end with our grown children. There was a total of 11 adults, with the wife's and my dogs. We found the home more than adequate, spacious, clean, room for everyone. The lake was awesome for swimming and everyone caught at least 1 bass, which we released, so the next renter can enjoy. We found (Dana) the owner to be very responsive and an eagerness to make our trip enjoyable. We most deffinetly will recommend, and return. Thank you Dana from our family. Walt and Liz Willhoite P.S. Your right Dana you cannot hear traffic in house or out back.

Owner response: This family was my first time tenants ever. I was so impressed by their cleanliness and respect for my things. Neighbors said they enjoyed their laughter. Wonderful family. I am confident now, sharing my home is the right thing to do. I hope it can bring pleasure to many families. God Bless.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I am a business owner in Sebring. I bought this home for a ministry of mine, I plan to use in the future, when I retire in a few years called 'A Place for dad'. My mother died unexpectedly and dad was left all alone. That generation the wife played the traditional role of Cook and housekeeper. My father was left alone, with no coping skills. I feel if he had a home to go to where he had a cook and housekeeper and similar friends he would have had more meaning to his life and cherished it more. Until I have the time to make my dream come true, I want to share this Blessings with others who will respect and love it like myself. I hope it will bring many fond memories to those who enter.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
This property exudes Peace and joy. Lake Placid is a #1 place of retirement. I spent 6 months redecorating a '70's house with Love. It has brought me much healing in a time of difficulty . I love this house, too big for just me, so Ill gladly share so others can enjoy my blessing, by renting either level, or all of this property. Perfect for a family reunion. Eventually I will retire in this home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
As soon as you turn into the driveway a beautiful yellow dogwood was in full bloom. Beautiful moss filled oak trees blow lightly in the breeze with the red brick home behind the split rail fence, laid out so nicely in the mist of them. Single story from the front of home, you walk in and immediate see the spectacular view of the lake thru the large sliding glass windows. Hard wood floors, cool painted walls, and an inviting presence. Lots of light and character. The layout of the back yard is unique with spit levels, a stairway down to the dock and a rope guardrail. The osprey gather in 3 trees around the lake and I watch them fish for their breakfast and lunch daily. A group of raccoons play in the tree outside the bedroom window at night sometimes. An owl perches on the rail while turtles sunbathe on the shore. Fish actually follow you around on the kayak. The spring fed water is perfect for swimming or floating in your raft! No gas motors allowed. ( 2 lakes with in 1 mile for gas motor boats, can park here in extra lot).Very close to all local hot spots. Many sleeping arrangement's can be made with placement of furniture.
