Living on Lake Time

  • 5 of 5

The physical setting is beautiful. The lake is circular, two miles in diameter with an unimpeded view to the east across Camp Blanding, Florida's National Guard Base. The sunrises are spectacular. The gazebo over the water affords easy access to swimming with plenty of shallow water for the little ones in your fold. If has a small refrigerator and wine cooler right there. We see Bald Eagles, Ospreys, American Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Belted kingfishers, Barn swallows, Pileated woodpeckers, Red-bellied woodpeckers and Laughing gulls from the gazebo.

The house itself is very comfortable and sleeps eight easily. The kitchen is very well appointed, featuring a convection oven, large refrigerator/freezer and everything necessary for preparation of a gourmet meal (it helps to have a chef in the family, as do we!). If rice is a substantial ingredient in your diet, you should bring your rice cooker--a small inconvenience.

Kingsley Lake is only an hour or so away from Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Gainesville so that a day trip to the Zoo, Fort San Marcos, the University of Florida or other such attractions is easily accomplished.

A visit here will be long, and fondly remembered.

Superb facilities for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The home easily accommodates eight people. The spacious and well appointed kitchen is perfect for gourmet-level food preparation, as well as snacks and light lunches. The two bathrooms are more than adequate. The large living room and porch are very comfortable. We very much enjoyed lounging around the shaded deck over the lake.

This is a perfect setting for a relaxing vacation.

Charming, beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's 6th year visiting this lovely lake home on Kingsley Lake. The house if very clean and beautifully decorated. It is fully equipped with updated kitchen appliances, and newly redecorated living areas. Comfortable sleeping and sitting areas. Very charming and feels like home. The dock is roomy yet provides a large shaded area & plenty of seating. We have had the privilege of being there for a Father's Day, and a few birthdays. Fun place to celebrate. Easily accommodates a large family.

Beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this wonderful lake home was most enjoyable and very accomodating for our family of six adults and two children. It was very well equipped with everything we needed. We found it very spacious, exceptionally clean, and well maintained. The dock was spacious and had plenty of chairs and chaise lounges. We did not even unpack our own. The beachfront was great for our small grandchildren!

The listing was accurate, and homeowners very pleasant and helpful. We look forward to a return stay!
