Yalaha house description

Bring your boat or enjoy the views from the land, this gorgeous lake house has it all! Built from Cypress cut from the property, this house was home to the original settlers of the area. Fully remodeled in 2013, the 1920s charm is still present throughout. Decorated in Florida Nautical/Lodge style, the home feels comfortable and sophisticated all at the same time.

A stay with us includes use of the Mission Inn Resort facilities. The outdoor and recreation experiences offered by Mission Inn Resort & Club are both diverse and unique. In addition to championship golf, the resort offers guests an opportunity to experience trap & skeet shooting, tennis, fresh water fishing, nature trails, a pool, playgrounds, many restaurants, and more. You'll run out of vacation days before running out of things to do at Mission Inn Resort & Club.

The house is fully furnished with a fully stocked kitchen. Three bedrooms include a master with a king bed and a master bath, and two additional bedrooms: one with a full-size bed and the other with a queen and a twin. These two bedrooms share the guest bath. The living room has a queen pull-out sofa for which linens are provided. We have a pack & play if you would like to use it (bring own crib sheet & blankets).

We do generally accept small and medium-size dogs with a nonrefundable pet fee of $200. We do not have a fenced-in yard.

Our house is a wonderful place to bring children as there are peacocks that roam the neighborhood and lots of wildlife to be seen around the property. The Yalaha Bakery is in walking distance of the house and has live music on Saturdays from 11 to 2. The house is conveniently located just 10 minutes from grocery stores and restaurants.

Other Area Activities
Located in Central Florida, Yalaha is sequestered from, yet convenient to, the world's most famous theme parks and attractions in Orlando. In addition, Yalaha is surrounded by an assortment of activities and nature experiences that complete any vacation.

Lakeridge Winery – Clermont's award winning winery offers tours and insight into the cultivation and harvesting of the grapes, along with samples.
Mount Dora – Antiquing in this lakeside community is plentiful.
Yalaha Bakery – Authentic German and Bavarian master bakers serve delicious treats in an authentic old-world German setting.

Free boat ramp just around the corner.

The popular and historic Mount Dora area is only 15 minutes away. Mount Dora merchants invite you to shop their quaint downtown boutiques and antique shops. Bicycle, fish, or water ski on Lake Dora, golf, and dine in the fine restaurants.

Centrally located, approximately 1.5 hours to spend a day on an Atlantic Beach or in the opposite direction, a day on the Gulf side.

Our children love visiting the town of Tavares, only 15 minutes away by car or boat. Tavares is the Sea Plane capital of Florida and the quaint downtown has a great waterfront with delicious restaurants and a huge playground and splash pad. No visit is complete without a visit to the train. Children also love visiting Uncle Donald’s Farm (15 mins) where you can meet adorable farm animals up close, or the Amazing Exotics Education Center which has more than 300 exotic and endangered animals on view.

The Trout Lake Nature Center has picnicking, hiking and environmental education opportunities, and you can be a cowboy for a day at Fiddler’s Green Ranch, where National Mounted Police horses are trained. Eighteen beautiful golf courses are located near Tavares, and wine-tasting tours are available at Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards (15 mins).

Tavares is host to the annual 'Downtown Fall Festival' at the end of October, and the 'Light Up Celebration', usually held in late fall.

Pick this house because of the amazing views over the lake, free access to the Mission Inn Resort (under 5 mins) and the peace and relaxation of the countryside - just a short drive to the excitement of Orlando and the Parks.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We are Brad and Christina, live most of the year in Orlando and have three small children.

          Why the Owner Chose Yalaha:
          This house was built in the 20s and we bought in 2013 from the family that built it. It overlooks beautiful Lake Harris and the neighborhood is peaceful and tranquil. Often on Saturdays we walk to the Yalaha Country Bakery and get lunch and listen to live music. This home has been a weekend house for our family and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The original owners of this home were the original settlers of this area and the home has a lot of character. We've furnished it to be cozy and inviting for our family. The views from the front room over Lake Harris are amazing and we hang out in the swing by the lake while the kids play on the beach in the afternoons.
