Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Perfect getaway to enjoy the sunsets on the lake each night. Would be perfect for snowbirds wanting to get away from the cold and snow in the north during the winter. Private lake where fishing is great. This is a wooded area and the house sits on 1.2 acres.

Canoe and paddles are onsite. There is also a jon boat with oars. You can also launch your own boat from the property.

Roast marshmallows over a camp fire and eat either on the dock or the picnic table.

Enjoy swimming, fishing, and canoeing on a beautiful, private, spring-fed lake.

Disney World or the Orlando area attractions are about a 2 hour drive. Busch Gardens and other Tampa Bay area attractions are about a 2 hour drive.

If you want to stream video or need a high usage of data, this is not the place for you. There is a MIFI hotspot with limited data only for basic emails, etc.

Had fun! Pinball was nostalgic. Don't buy fishing worms or charcoal. There is enough there.

Greg was there when you needed him and not before. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect place for quality family time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time! The home had everything we needed. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious. The livingroom/kitchen area was a great place to gather. The fishing off the dock was great, no keepers, but lots of bites! We had a great stay!
