Ask owner. There are NO baby locks, easy access to cleaning supplies under sinks, etc.in the home. There is a fence around the property on 3 sides, but NOT on the lake side. Your children will have free access to lake water and wildlife, so if you bring children, you will assume all responsibility and risk....moreless

About the owner: We live in Fort Lauderdale, Fl and Don is an engineer/general contractor and Kathryn is an artist. We orginally thought the house would be a great vacation house, but it seems it is a source of endless creative projects!
Why the Owner Chose Sebring, FL, USA:
WE HAVE A SPECIAL FOR ALL RACE TEAMS, WEEKENDS $84.00 a night per room, minimum 4 rooms to rent. Don is an amateur race car driver and loves the track. Kathryn is an artist and loves the natural lake views and peaceful atmosphere. She is originally from Indiana and is reminded of that Midwestern niceness of the people in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have plenty of room to entertain family and friends. After a noisy day at the track, or a busy day of sight seeing, it is wonderful to come 'home' to a quiet beautiful sunset over the lake. Life is good! Upstairs balcony makes for great star watching on the clear nights away from the big city lights.
