Natural Spring-Fed Lakefront 3/2 House With Dock
About Carol Watters
I am a Native of St. Augustine and local Real-Estate agent. My family built this tranquil lakefront home several years ago. We have had years of family fun on beautiful Lake Ida, our home away from home.
Carol Watters purchased this House in 2011
Why Carol Watters chose Interlachen
You get so much bang for your buck. Close but still far away. Everything you need on hand so you never have to leave. Arrive day one with your groceries and sit back and relax. This property is secluded enough to feel as though you are by yourselves while close enough to any local amenities you may need.
What makes this House unique
Lake Ida is a 45 min. drive from home, the Nations Oldest City, but still far enough away for us to feel like we are on vacation as soon as we arrive.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect Easter Weekend
Thank you for opening your home to our family... Beautiful Views each morning over looking the lake (Except for the nasty storm we had Friday)... home is well stocked with all necessities, grocery store near-by for everything you need....
We will definite back
Nice place to relax
We stayed 5 nights in this cozy home. It's nice and quite and wonderful being on the water. The place had a nice stocked linens and kitchen with most things needed to cook, which was great. The back yard was wonderful with a swing on the porch and a dock to sit on watching boats going by with your pole in the water. We caught a few fish just for fun. Catch & release only!
We went to a local bbq restaurant "backwoods bbq" which was a nice find, try the southern eggrolls... you won't be disappointed.
Only thing this house needs is a new TV... there is only 1 in the home, which is fine but the picture was going out. So watching was not the best, only could watch half the screen. If they replace that TV, then this place is perfect. We would totally come back and stay again.
Lovely lake front home. Beautiful sunsets
This home was perfect for us. We love the country and old Florida atmosphere, and this is what we found.There were ample country roads with minimal traffic to walk the dog.
The porch, and covered dock with plenty of outside chairs were a bonus to allow us to enjoy the Florida sunshine and lake scenery. The WiFi was convenient and faster than ours at home. Our Chihuahua enjoyed the low windows on the doors so she could look outside. The hard surface flooring was great and easy for housekeeping. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing vacation at this home.
We needed to get away for peace and quit. We greatly appreciate your kindness for the last minute reservation. That being said, I had to clean before using anything in the kitchen and bathrooms as there was a layer of dust. The back porch we enjoyed after cleaning it as well. Items on the porch were covered with dirt, leaves and pine needles. The yard had food trash in it. Several nights we were woken by a pack of dogs running in the front and back yards.
Relaxing, beautiful lake
What a beautiful, relaxing spot on the water with a great dock. I'm sure in the warmer weather the lake is great with a sliding board. We boated on the lake, and caught fish off the dock. For bass fishing, we trailered our boat to Rodman Reservoir which is only 10 miles down the road. The house itself had everything we needed including linens and towels. We were very comfortable there, they could have used an updated tv but we managed with what was there. Plenty of windows and very pet friendly. Owners were very friendly and easy to work with.
We had such a nice time!
We had such a great time fishing off the dock and building fires at night! Thank you for having us!
If you are a licensed SCUBA/Nitrox/cavern or cave diver this is an awesome launch point for you to go to the mid state springs, and leave the family in an environment thy will absolutely love if they would prefer to not go with you.
Also speaking of gearing up, don't forgot to grab that golf bag, as TPC Sawgrass, and other notable golf courses are all within driving range, (no pun intended). Plus the World Golf Village is within an hours drive with other premier golf courses.
