Best Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

So many Thank You's are due to this amazing couple!! The place was so beautiful, clean, and well equipped with everything we needed. We planned to stay 2 weeks til our house closed and only ended up staying a week. The owners even offered for us to join them on a boat ride everyday. And provided lots of info for things to do in the area since they knew we had a little boy. Sooo Nice!!! We were so very impressed by their hospitality and the view is something out of a magazine!!

Florida in January is Great

  • 4 of 5

Traveling from Kansas to Florida for a visit with our kids made this a great place to stay and a great get away from the Kansas winter. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay you can not go wrong. Bob and Sue were great hosts and the afternoon cruise around the lake with an adult beverage was a treat. It is also very conveniently located for some day trips. Did a little fishing with my grandson and we had a blast.

Attractive lake house with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The owners (and a long-time winter renter staying in the adjacent yellow house) live on the large property and were very kind and did much to help us feel at home and welcome during our winter stay. The small house is open, attractive, clean and comfortable with beautiful views of the lake. We especially appreciated the very comfortable beds and the nice porch with relaxing lounge chair and rockers. We felt at home. We found there was much to do in the area with Gainesville and interesting small towns close by and plenty of day hikes and lakes to enjoy. The location is convenient to the gulf and coast. We enjoyed a wonderful stay. Thank you!!

Quiet , tranquil vacation cottage.......

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed the peace and tranquility found at this beautiful lake cottage. Bob & Sue are wonderful hosts/owners ! They truly cared that our needs were met. There is a grocery store within about 10-15 min in case you forget any personal items. It was great to wake to a peaceful sunrise. Fish at anytime of day. Swim, kayak or boat throughout the day. Traffic is not heavy on the lake at all. There were occasionally other boats or jet skis, but not often. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place to get away from it all, this is it ! Great family stay. Mark & Robin Temes
