Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Larry and Scottie Swor love entertaining visitors to Swor Cottage and sharing the beauty and the fun of historic Lake Weir. They live year round on the two acre estate and are available to make sure guests have everything needed to insure a delightful vacation experience. Because the Swors reside on the grounds of the estate, guests get first class service and personal assistance if needed. Please read the reviews posted by some of our past guests, including the couples who have married here

Why the Owner Chose Stanton, Florida, USA:
To live on Lake Weir is to be in a vacation paradise all year long . We have been privileged to enjoy this enchanting lifestyle since 1987. Over the years we have built our two acre estate into a beautiful haven for guests of all ages. We love sharing our home with people who appreciate nature and who are seeking a respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
We live only 7 miles from The Villages, Florida's premier retirement community. All the great chain restaurants are nearby. Lots of great shopping, and ,of course, golf! Many of our guests have told us they love visiting and playing in The Villages but prefer staying on the lake where there is so much more room to move around. This is especially true of guests with small children or dogs. Our two plus acres is the ideal venue for small weddings.
