Property description

Reviews! Instead of requesting reviews on line, we have a unique way our guests leave messages. Just send us an email and we will let you see for yourselves.

This 'new construction' 3br 2 bath, 2 story home is located on 5500 acre Crooked Lake, a state registered Outstanding Florida Water, one of only three in the state! Not only is the lake an outstanding Bass and Speckled Perch (Crappie) lake, but push a KAYAK off our beach and you are 100 yards from state protected wetlands, some of the finest fishing waters in Florida. Bird watchers, nature lovers, photographers, this area I'm talking about is the Crooked Lake Prairie State Park. By KAYAK, quietly paddle through incredible wetlands where the scenery and sunsets are spectacular! If hiking is your passion, a short walk from the house is the entrance to the park where a network of trails guide you through protected lands that look the same as they did when Indians once lived here!
When building the property, our primary goal was to create a destination where relaxation and rejuvenation were possible. We have done so designing seven different sitting/play areas, each with it's own unique characteristics. Your choices include; playing on the beach, relaxing in wooden rockers or a hammock under the trees, traditional porch swing on upstairs balcony, sunning platform on rear porch, Adirondack chairs downstairs in back, game room complete with leather recliners and shuffleboard, and the upstairs living room/ kitchen that gives you the feeling of being in a tree house!
Speaking of the house, there are two bedrooms with queen beds and one with a twin and trundle. Full laundry room, a downstairs shower that's wheelchair accessible. We can rearrange the beds to accommodate guests needs.
Currently we have a 'restricted pets' policy 20 lbs maximum, with an additional security deposit. Ask us about it! Showing up with without prior consent to include a pet may forfeit your stay.
Internet and WiFi included. Basic cable tv. We had the premium cable but found the property is so geared to being outdoors or playing games it wasn't necessary.
Local restaurants - we love to grill at the lake but have also found some really great places to eat. Not the chain restaurants, but really awesome tucked away, family run restaurants where you can get stuffed lobster, 5 star Italian food, the best pork chops we have ever eaten, great burgers, and the popular 'loaded waffle fries'. Oh, and don't forget ice cream!
I could go on but I bet you get the picture. If you have additional question either call or email.

Owner info

About the owner: I had always dreamed of building a lake house so that my family would have a great place to have fun and relax, and had hoped to do so by my 50th birthday. Well we almost made it. Actually had my 50th birthday party in the house. It was just missing things like doors and drywall!LOL

Why the Owner Chose Babson Park, FL, USA:
I built on this lake and selected this location for many reasons. 1) Love the proximity to Crooked Lake State Park. 2) Dead end street reduces traffic. 3) Boat ramp is right down the road. 4) Best KAYAK location on the lake. 5) Situated in a friendly neighborhood where there is a mix of seasonal and year round families. You know your neighbors and people help each other. 6) No street lights so it's extremely dark and the stars are AMAZING!
