About the owner: Owners are both retired principals and now live on Lake Santa Fe outside of Gainesville, Florida. We enjoy fishing, boating, traveling, and Gator Games at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Panasoffkee: This is our first home and is located in Sumter County where we both grew up and attended school. This home then became our summer home as our children were growing up and we had summers off from teaching. Now we are able to share our home with visitors and also use it as we visit our families residing in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The lake views from the living area make you feel as though you are on a cruise ship! The quiet neighborhood, abundant wildlife, crystal clear pool, and dock for fishing all add to the variety of activities for you while you visit.
