  • Great Place - Bugs not so Great

    "We arrived on Friday after an 11.5hr road trip from ATL to find the house swarming in Midget Flies. I'll get to that in a bit. The house was very nice and decorated with all kinds of fishing stuff, which is right up my alley. The bedrooms were clean and neat with each decorated differently to satisfy varied tastes. The master was on the main floor which was great considering we had teens with us. It has 2.5 baths, but both full baths are downstairs. No biggie for me, but the guests we had didn't like having to go downstairs to bathe. The staple in the house was the ping pong table. The kids played on it constantly. Outside the deck was large and so was the hot tub, which was also used a lot. The sand on the beach was clean and soft, considering it was at a lake. The dock was nice and lift was great for putting our boat up without having to pull it out of the water daily. Over all the place was pretty nice. Now to the bad part, the bugs. I grew up on the Gulf Coast and am use to nats and mosquitos. It goes with the territory, especially in South Florida. However, the bugs we had the entire week would make you think another plague was in full swing. The Midget Flies were out in swarms. I mean swarms as in they covered the house to almost change it's color. They were all over the house, doors, windows, deck, grass, bushes and dock. They were especially bad in the mornings and evenings with the wind coming out of the East. It was impossible to keep them out of the house. Every morning we swept up at least a dust pan full of flies, the dead ones. At night, the hum of the buzzing was loud enough to be heard troughout the house. By mid-week, the smell outside was bad due to bug droppings everywhere. I was told by the landscaper that this is a regular occurance during the spring, especially with a constant wind out of the East, the house being on the western shore of the lake. Without the bugs, this would have been one great vacation and location for it. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. We may try this rental again, during a different time of the year, but will definately avoid it during the spring months for sure. This was just our experience, during this particular time period. I'm sure it's different at other times and what a great place to enjoy the lake."

  • 5 Weeks on Lake Henry from the Tennesseans

    "Loved our stay here! Beautiful weather, updated look to the 3B, 3B. We especially liked the privacy of the queen bedroom when we had a guest stay. She felt she had her own private area, far from the master suite area. The owner was wonderful to work with and answered me very quickly to answer any questions or concerns. We enjoyed all the neighbors too!"

  • Great time at Lake Clay

    "We have been going to this lake since 1984 but this was our first stay at this house. Great beach with plenty of shade from the trees and a good dock. Water level was great and the end of the dock has water 6 feet deep and it drops off quickly making for no worries with an inboard boat. We ski and wakeboard and this is a great rental for these activities. House is good size with plenty of room and a very big kitchen. Back yard is spacious and the porch has great room to eat outside and relax! We were there 6 nights and are already planning to return next summer."

  • Great family Vacation!

    "The week my family spent in beautifully scenic Lake Placid Florida was not spent in a house but rather a home. The pictures of this gorgeous safe haven nestled along the mesmerizing Lake June simply do not do it justice. Not only was the house furnished and decorated with charm and style, but the beds were very comfortable allowing for a peaceful sleep. The home’s personal dock that stretched out into the lake prompted afternoons spent fishing in the warm Florida sun. The ping pong table and cabinet packed with board games lead to sorely missed family game nights. While the grounds were pristine and the interior welcoming, the owner was the icing on the cake. Paula was great, did everything in her power to make sure we had a memorable stay. We all look forward to our next visit!"
