About Michelle Bolhuis
Recreational triathlete that has completed 12 iM and is attempting to complete her first Anvil (double Ironman). Like to think my properties represent my healthy gardens, relaxing environment where you can get a good nights sleep & good access to places where one can swim, bike and run:-))
Michelle Bolhuis purchased this House in 2010
Why Michelle Bolhuis chose Clermont
Most lakefront properties in the area have a road separating the beach from the house. This lake house is situated right on the water! Some people don't want to be RIGHT on the water if that's you please check out our brand new adjacent property that is directly across the street. 4628359 HA
What makes this House unique
Being situated on a major chain of lakes is both very revitalizing and tranquil at the same time.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Beautiful property on Lake Louisa
This was our third stay at this property and look forward to returning again. The spacious lakefront house was as advertised and easily accommodated our group of four adults. The house was clean and well maintained. Michelle and Jeff were just a phone call away and responded very quickly to any needs. The location allowed us to cycle right from the property and was just a short drive from all the amenities in Clermont and Central Florida attractions.
We look forward to your return!
Very Clean & Inviting House - Great sunset views
Great fishing spot!
The house was very clean, recently updated, very user friendly, well equipped and a great place to relax for a weekend or for a week.
I would highly recommend it.
It's on a fairly busy road, you have to be careful entering & exiting the driveway but the back of the property, the lake, the dock, the fishing, the view, the large sun-room, modern kitchen, did I say "fishing", king beds and convenience to restaurants and grocery stores more than makes up for the road it's on.
My wife will turn around and leave if a place is not clean or smell clean when we walk in the door and she really liked this home. There was a pleasant welcoming note with contact information if needed which is always comforting when you're out of town if something does go wrong.
Everything went well and worked perfectly. It looks like the kitchen and entire home has been renovated recently but still has the charm of an older Florida lakefront home.
I hope we're able to go back soon.
It's guests enjoying our house and appreciating our attention to details that make it all worth while. Hope to see you back soon!
great place to stay in clermont fl
enjoyed our stay. this is the second year we rented this house for our snowbirding trip to Fl. Michelle and Jeff are great and available for any questions
We look forward to your return and you becoming permanent neighborhors (because you liked the area so much👍)
It’s all about the view, and the million dollar sunsets. If the weather’s good, and it usually is, then nothing beats sitting on the dock, or the deck and watching the sun go down. Enjoyed our time here.
I hope your travel plans take you this way again next year!
Great Place to stay in Clermont FL
Great Spot. Very Clean and well organized. Plenty of cooking pans and serving items. We love sitting outside to view the lake and all it's activity. Michelle and Jeff are very friendly and always around to help with any recommendations.
We look forward to your return in February 2019!
Lake Louisa Road House
The house on Lake Louisa is absolutely fantastic. If you want a place to stay in Florida, please don’t miss this home. Jeff and Michelle were the most gracious people. They were great hosts and we became good friends.
Please reach out to use if you are waiting for your house to be built. We have 4 properties in the area with less expensive long term options. Sometimes moving into your new home is delayed longer than you think it will be and we have the flexibility with the 4 properties to make contingency plans for you.
We were blessed to become good friend with Crissy & Jack while they waited for their new house to be built.
Clermont Chain of Lakes, Florida: Sun Setting Over Lake Palatlakaha

Water paradise awaits in East Central Florida: the Clermont Chain of Lakes offers over 9000 acres of water surface with additional miles of canals and rivers. Eleven of the 13 lakes in the chain are connected with channels and with stretches of the Palatlakaha River that remain navigable to small boats. The other two lakes are connected to each other, but separated from through-boat traffic by a water control structure on the Palatlakaha River. Located a few miles southwest of Orlando, the Clermont Chain of Lakes is one of central Florida's hottest housing markets in the area and a popular destination for water sports lovers year round.
The larger lakes are popular for waterskiing and are densely populated with water lovers. The largest of the lakes are Lake Minneola (1,888 acres), Lake Minnehaha (2,298 acres), Lake Louisa (3,634 acres) and Cherry Lake (401 acres). All four are on the main portion of the chain along the river and easily accessed by water. Lake Winona (64 acres), Lake Palatlakaha (102 acres), Lake Hiawatha (49 acres), Wilson Lake (32 acres), Lake Susan (81 acres), Lake Crescent (122 acres) and Cook Lake (21 acres) are all peripherally-connected lakes either by river or manmade canal. Located near the town of Groveland, Lake Lucy (346 acres) and Lake Emma (173 acres) are often considered as part of the chain due to their location on the Palatlakaha River. The highest elevation among the lakes is a normal 97 feet at Lake Susan.

Palatlakaha Run, the longest water trail in the Lake County Blueways system, offers over 26 miles of paddling enjoyment along the chain. The deepest spots in the entire chain are about 26 feet with the majority considerably shallower. The unpopulated areas of the shorelines are wetlands harboring a wide variety of native wildlife. Attractive moss-draped cypress trees line the canals and shelter many of the shorelines-the perfect backdrop for a scenic kayak trip. The Clermont Chain of Lakes is one of the most pristine in central Florida, but water color varies according to water source. Some lakes are primarily spring-fed and clear, while others gain their water from nearby Green Swamp and offer water tinted by tannin. The brown color does not indicate poor water quality however, and these darker lakes are often preferred for swimming as the lack of light penetration keeps the water temperatures cooler than in clearer lakes.
Two marinas are located on the lakes, one at Lake Minnehaha and the other at Lake Susan. The marina at Lake Minnehaha offers some boat rentals and rental slips for local boaters, and Lake Susan sells boat gas. Several public boat ramps are located on the chain; some allow launching for a small fee, and many commercial facilities offer boat launching from their docks. The main boating lane north from Lake Louisa has directional signage for the convenience of boaters. A swimming beach is offered on the south side of Lake Louisa at Lake Louisa State Park. The lakes are well-known for being excellent fishing lakes, with smallmouth bass, redear sunfish, largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and channel catfish most often caught. Most of the lakes have fallen trees and dredge holes acting as fish attractants; these are marked by buoys. Several fishing piers offer shore fishing and access to the disabled. A Florida fishing license is required.
The City of Clermont is widely known as the 'wakeboarding capital of the world,' with a year-round camp dedicated solely to teaching the skill of wakeboarding. Clermont has a boat ramp and public beach at Waterfront Park on Lake Minneola and offers rentals of bicycles and kayaks to access both the chain of lakes and the many trails in the area. The South Lake Trail, popular with walkers and rollerblade fans, is a 'Rails to Trails" path that connects to the West Orange Trail. Half- and full-day paddling tours can be arranged here from the rental facility. The Great Clermont Triathlon is held here each year, taking advantage of the water and trails in the area. The towns of Clermont, Montverde, Minneola and Groveland offer several forms of lodgings to suit the visiting Lakelubber. Chain hotels join small resorts, campgrounds and RV parks to house visitors, while a few weekly private rentals can also be found. Real estate is mostly upscale, with new gated communities being developed every year. Many small unusual shops and artisan galleries offer the best of eclectic shopping, while cafes and restaurants cater to every taste.
Lake Louisa State Park holds about 60 full-service campsites and two primitive camping areas suitable for tent campers. Several equestrian camping sites offer convenient access for horse owners who enjoy the horseback trails in the area.
