About Ron

We came to Cedar Creek Lake looking for a special place to relax and rejuvenate away from the city. We found more than we ever expected!

Ron purchased this lodge in 2001

Why Ron chose Cedar Creek Lake

The trees! The lush, green setting among tall cypress, oak and pine trees is simply breathtaking. The filtered sunlight and spectacular sunset views are some of the most beautiful you will ever see! We love the smooth, sandy bottom swimming area and the sandy beach in the summer is the best on the lake!

What makes this lodge unique

We fell in love with the spectacular sunsets and the majestic trees which provide lots of cooling shade in the summer and create a 'dappled' light over the living in a tree shaded paradise on the edge of the lake glistening in the sunshine. The wonderful swimming area and soaring ceilings with tall windows in the home were the 'cherries on top'!

Walking into this house is a feast for your senses!

  • 5 of 5

What is the fastest way to fully immerse yourself in peace, relaxation and calm at Cedar Creek Lake? Walk through the door of Michael and Ron's Summer House. I'm not kidding...that first step inside is a feast for all the senses.

Yes, ALL the senses...even taste. The fridge had freshly laid eggs, a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbly, and a large jar of fresh-made goat's milk yogurt. And the makings for s'mores and ready and waiting for you to head on down to the fire pit for a camp fire. It simply gets better from there. Who knew a heated bathroom floor would feel so incredible in the middle of the summer. But, trust me, it does.

When you are back home and think back to your vacation here, I bet the thing you think the most is, "What was the wonderful fragrance in that house?" Seriously, you will think of it again and again. You sigh, and for just a moment your vacation smile returns.

They have thought of everything.......truly, they have. Go stay in one of Michael and Ron's homes. You will be glad you did.

Great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over spring break for four nights and had a great time. Good property, great location, and recently updated kitchen and bathrooms. I would have to say that the hospitality of the owners was over the top and would be one of the biggest draws to come back here. Well stocked kitchen with all sorts of good quality cookware, dishes, and utensils. Normally we bring items with us because there is always something missing with vacation rentals or is of poor quality, but was not the case here. My son mentioned in passing that I like to use a coffee press and within an hour the owner produced one for us to use - wow, great service. Awesome elevated fit pit with all the firewood you could need with plenty of outdoor seating. Property is right on the water with a nice retaining wall and walkway (which was going to be redone the following week), no beach area though or really anywhere on the lake for that matter. We rented 3 jet skis and a boat and there was room to tie up, probably need to let the owners know ahead of time about your intentions. If we find ourselves looking to come to this area again, this would be our first choice and we would only bring groceries and nothing else. The only thing we had to adjust to is that there are several properties so there is somewhat of a shared space. We accidentally used the wrong fire pit and camped out on the dock, but I don't think that was associated with the property. Not a big deal, just be courteous and have a great time.

Exceptional. No, Beyond Exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. My girlfriend and I stayed in the main house for the weekend. Ron and Michael were friendly and accomodating. The patio and dock to sit on the lake are beautiful. Everything the house has is nice, esp the grills and cookware. Best showers ever. Great lake view from living room. Great place to get away.

Where do you live?

My second visit and looking forward to many more!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to this gorgeous property and will definitely not be my last.

As a vacation rental owner, myself, my eye is drawn to every detail and these guys have it "nailed". They have thought of everything and more.

Not only do you get to experience a wonderful property and location, but 2 very gracious and caring hosts.

Thanks, Guys...see again soon!

Mini resort getaway

  • 5 of 5

The best rental home I have stayed at this far. With the amount of amenities it had it felt like a small resort. We were able to get to try many new things on this trip. Everyone morning we were able to go goat milking which was a fun experience. The rental homes had paddle boards available to use which was something I had not yet tried before and was alot of fun. Also they had many free food waiting for us including duck eggs which are very tasty. I came with a group of 12 friends ages around 25 just to have a good time at the lake. The homes had plenty of places for everyone to sleep comfortably.This rental property had everything you could want to have a great time.I also have to say that homes themselves were very nice... best showers I have been in. All in all it was a great weekend at a great house, I would highly recommend staying here!

Great lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Easily the best equipped rental lake house I've ever seen. It had an excellent kitchen, comfortable beds, and was very clean. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The only issue we had, aside from a truly amazing lakeside population of spiders, was the lake access. Tropical storm Bill did some damage to the break water and the was no dock, so getting to the water was less pleasurable for us than it probably is most of the time. The owners said they're working on getting it fixed. Also, we had to share that access with a family from a nearby "farmhouse" that passed through our porch area at weird times and that was a little awkward. Those small wrinkles aside, we had a great time and would definitely recommend this lake house!
