This DESIGNER HOME is located on the Roosevelt Golf Course and behind the newly-built Truman Recreation Center with a large, heated Family Pool. Views of the Roosevelt Golf Course, views of the Truman Recreation Center and views of the beautiful, flowing 4'-high grasses. We scoured The Villages a long time before choosing this particular lot on which to build our Dream Home and have been absolutely thrilled with the results. No through street and an end of road cul-de-sac provide a very quiet location and yet with a wonderful 'neighborly' feel. You will have awesome VIEWS from the master bedroom suite, with a king bed, double sinks, extra-large titled shower with seat, his and hers closets and these awesome VIEWS are also seen from our fully-equipped and nicely appointed kitchen, VIEWS from the newly-expanded lanai, VIEWS from the den or 3rd bedroom and VIEWS from the Florida room.

You'll have a fabulous vacation in the fabulous Villages and in our fabulous Home!!

High-end furniture and high-end Garnet Hill bedding will provide you with lots of sleeping comfort after your active and fun-filled days. 42'-in HDTV in Living Room and a flat-screen TV is also in Master Bedroom, high-speed Internet, wireless and 4 recliners are just a few of the amenities.

2 Trek Bikes with Helmets are included in the rental fees, as well as Tennis and Pickleball Rackets and 2 sets of Golf Clubs and our neat 4-seater electric Golf Cart. We learned to play pickle ball in The Villages and absolutely love it. We also love the friendly atmosphere. The Villages certainly lives up to its reputation as being 'America's Friendliest Hometown.' Other favorite activities for us are Water Volleyball, Softball and Biking with the Bike Club. And, just this year, we discovered Dragon Boating.... which is so much fun and great exercise!

You will be receiving a copy of the Daily Sun delivered to 1060 Alcove Loop every morning. It is a great place to check out the myriad of activities for the day and week. There is also a Recreation News that comes out weekly, every Thursday, and will be included with your copy of The Daily Sun.Try something new... trying it in The Villages is a great place to start! Also, VERY exciting in May, 2015 is the GRAND opening of the Sharon Theater for live performances which will have 1,000 seats and from the pictures we have seen thus far, looks like a fabulous addition to The Villages.

Glenn and I are very active people here in Southern Vermont, however, when we are at The Villages we go to bed exhausted every night. We hit our pillows content and happy and very well exercised! Also, every night, 24/7, there is dancing at the 3 beautiful Town Squares; Sumter Landing, Brownwood and Spanish Springs, along with Happy Hours! Some of the myriad of organized activities include pickle ball, tennis, biking, line dancing, water volleyball, drive-in movies with your golf cart, polo, yoga, tai chi, swimming, aerobics, dragon boating and dancing, dancing, dancing....We love it here in The Villages and we are sure you will, as well.

About Anne Lemke

My husband, Glenn, and I absolutely LOVE The Villages and visiting our wonderful home located on the Roosevelt Golf Course. We get to play, play, play all day and dance, dance, dance all night! We both grew up in Glens Falls, NY and graduated from St Mary's Academy and even went to the Junior Prom together. Yikes, we even grew up on the same street. Yes, my husband and I, indeed, have known each other for a long, long, long time! :) We are the parents to 2 beautiful daughters; USC graduate and St Lawrence graduate and 4 cherished granddaughters who know us as Nona and Gaga.

Anne Lemke purchased this House in 2008

Why Anne Lemke chose Hemingway

We scoured FL for an investment rental prior to retiring and everything seemed the same...gated communities with golf. Not much to do except golf and sit by the pool. And, although we like to golf, we didn't want to ONLY golf so we would come back from our FL searches disappointed. Then we were watching the Golf channel and an ad came on about The Villages so we inquired. We made reservations to check it out and within 48 hours we were hooked. The myriad of activities available, the interesting, athletic and happy people we met and the pristine condition of The Villages sold us. And, after almost 5 years, we feel we made a great decision as our family and friends love visiting us when we are in The Villages.

What makes this House unique

Everything is golf accessible in The Villages. It's fun to take the cart when you go out to dinner or if you want to go to a show or even grocery shopping. You'll love our VIEWS from the lanai, our convenient location and the hundreds of activities available to you each and every day. I will guarantee you will come away from The Villages and our home feeling like you just had one of your BEST VACATIONS ever! And, you will be back. Many of our renters have turned into buyers and those not ready to retire have come back to our home often and with wonderful memories.

It feels like our “home away from home”! We love The Villages lifestyle and we make good use of all the amenities that Anne provides so that we can partake of that lifestyle—the pickleball paddles, the bikes and the golf clubs. We start our day on either the lanai or the “morning room”with the Daily Sun and our coffee, and finish our day at one of the centers with a Happy Hour beverage. Believe me, it is hard to leave Anne’s “Piece of Paradise “!

This rental is also used by family, including me, so we maintain it as if it was our primary property. The golf cart is purposely geared to run slower since some guests have not had experience being in a golf-cart community. (The golf cart, like my home, is very well maintained but don't expect it to win any races!:)

                                                                      UPDATED 11/1/2017. Since another guest had mentioned the golf cart being too slow, we did get it checked for speed and it was slower than we left it. So it is fixed now to run at

This is a community of very active and very friendly people who have come together from all over the world to simply enjoy life. There are about 75 golf courses, clay tennis courts, pickle ball courts, water volleyball, dragon boat racing, yoga, tai chi, line dancing, bike club rides and literally hundreds of other clubs and activities. Be as active as you want or simply ride around in our golf cart and soak up your beautiful surroundings. There is shopping conveniently located right around the corner at Colony Plaza and The Villages sponsors musical talent 365 evenings a year on all 3 of their Town Squares. We are conveniently located between the 2 newest Town Squares; Sumter Landing and Brownwood. Happy Hours and the entertainment start at 5:00. And, best of all, it's all FREE! Most other activities are free and all Executive Golf Courses are free, as well. And, another neat thing here is that EVERYTHING in The Villages is golf-cart accessible. You will have a 4-seater, electric golf cart for your use during your rental for no extra charge. We are located on the Roosevelt Golf Course, on Hole #3, so our views are just superb. And we are right behind the Truman Rec Center so convenient for swimming, tennis, pickelball and various exercise classes like Yoga and Walk-Away-the-Pounds. Glenn and I (along with the rest of our family and friends) simply LOVE The Villages. We go to bed exhausted every night but can hardly wait to get up the next day for our jammed-packed and FUN schedules. If you have been to The Villages, you know you will be in for a treat. And, if you have not been here, then be prepared for a ton-of-fun! Also, our home is in The Village of Hemingway which is a great spot for shopping, dining and convenience. Please call, 802-558-6516, with any additional questions. We look forward to hearing from you. Have a great day and make it a good one! Best, Anne and Glenn Lemke
