About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 14

This property is professionally managed by Oversee Rentals.

Welcome to Sandy Oar, this traditional lake house gets a dose of rustic refinement in this charming cottage with accommodations for 14 in the Lake District. Natural hues of pine and driftwood are enlivened with red accents to create an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication.

In the living area, a sectional sofa faces a smart flat screen television with DVD. The adjacent dining area has a round table for eight, with five additional seats at the expansive kitchen island. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with granite countertops, stainless dual fuel range, and panel-front refrigerator and dishwasher to match the espresso-toned custom cabinets.

The romantic master is furnished with a king iron bed facing an armoire in which a television and DVD are concealed. The private bath has a large walk-in shower with bench seat, and dual granite-topped vanity. Also on the main level there is a queen bedroom with a television and DVD, which adjoins a hall bath equipped with a combination tub and shower, plus single vanity.

Upstairs are two bedrooms - one with a queen bed, the other with two sets of built-in twin bunks and includes a large closet with built in shelving. Both rooms are furnished with televisions and DVDs. They share a hall bath with a walk-in shower and single vanity, which adjoins the queen bedroom.

The recently completed carriage house has sleeping for 4 with a queen bed in the master, queen sleeper, efficiency kitchen and covered parking. Generous porches and outdoor seating invite leisurely conversation and the outdoor fire-pit will provide great family memories of late evenings by the fire. The community recreation area, including The Frog Pool, is just one block away.

This house is a fantastic vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just loved staying at the Sandy Oar - main house and carriage house. It has a huge kitchen, all the amenities you can need and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for a large family to stay very comfortably. The carriage house is perfect for extended family to stay too. The front porch and patio in the back made outdoor eating and socializing so nice. We strongly recommend staying here as it centrally located (walking) to several pools, the boat house and grocery store. We will be staying here again for sure!

Fantastic home made for a fantastic weekend

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I rented the Sandy Oar for a weekend trip. The main house is beautiful! Great for the group of us to hang out, watch tv, eat together, etc. Everything in the house was clean, modern, and working while we were there. The rental came with a little apartment separate from the main house, which was comfy and clean too. The beach is a short walk or bike ride away and very easy to get to. We enjoyed bike riding in the neighborhood. The house is also within about 5 minutes from a Publix, which was very convenient for us. I've been many times down to Seaside / WaterColor and would rank Sandy Oar among the best houses I have stayed in!

I loved my stay at the Sandy Oar! Breakfast and great conversations on the lovely front porch! Smores and wine around the fire pit in the back! My best family vacation memories are from my stay at the Sandy Oar! I love the fact that there was ample space for private conversations and plenty of space for my family, my sister's family, my Dad, my brother's family--everyone! The design is well laid out--I got a little work done on the closed in back porch, while the kids played a lively game! We were able to make dinners together without bumping into one another and then sit down on the large round dining table to share great meals. The kitchen had everything I needed. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were spotless. I love that there were only a few steps and we were outdoors to stroll the lovely streets, get to the pools, fish on the pond, and get to the beach. I can't wait until our 7th vacation at the Shady Oar!

The home is very well maintained with a top quality, well-equiped kitchen. The decor is very homey and comfortable. The location is superior. Quiet street located close to pools, parks and walking trails.
