About the property

Sleeps 10*, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths

Connect with family, friends, and nature in our 2-story spacious home on beautiful Lake Palestine. Enjoy outstanding views of the lake from two porches: a main-level enclosed sun room that gives all-weather enjoyment and a downstairs screened-in porch open to the lake breezes. You can walk down our shaded lawn to the dock on the lake where you can swim, float, fish, relax, and tie up your boat. The backyard provides relaxation under tall pine trees - watch the kids play, grill a favorite meal.

About Sharon Huvelle

My parents had a lake house built on a lot on a small lake not far from Lake Palestine in the late 1960's. I loved our trips to the lake with my family and later with my husband, children and my siblings' kids. As our family grew through marriages and babies, we spent most holidays and summers at the lake. During the days, we swam, boated, skied, floated, played on the lawn, sunbathed. In the evenings, we'd grill and lake-watch. We also loved to gather in the living room and play games - spoons, 20 Questions, the dictionary game. From the oldest to the youngest, there was much laughter and togetherness.

I also loved alone-time on the porch, reading and looking at the lake.

Sharon Huvelle purchased this house in 2013

Why Sharon Huvelle chose Lake Palestine

We were charmed by the lake views and spacious comfort of The Water's Edge the moment we first stepped inside.

The Water's Edge also reminded me of the special times that my family shared and that I wanted to continue.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The property is well maintained and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Very well configured for a large family. The stairs to the basement are awkwardly placed, but the gate at the top prevents small children from falling. If you have small children you may want to bring another gate for the bottom. The kitchen is well appointed and prepared for whatever cooking you might want to do.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is beautiful with a truly picturesque view. Our family girl's trip to celebrate our Mom's 75th birthday was perfect. We spent mornings and evenings sitting on the porch just soaking in the view. Large home with great bedrooms and beds. Hope to be back with the boys!

Enjoyable Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for what we needed for a family getaway. The house is just as the pictures show. It has a terrific view and we really enjoyed the upstairs screened in patio. The video of opening and closing the windows helped! Bed and bath arrangements worked well for us. Kitchen is well stocked. Only caution we would express was the steep stairs to get to the bottom floor. Since we are all over 60, it could have been an issue if we had health problems. However, most of us were able to navigate them once we were aware of the steep climb. We really enjoyed our family gathering. Very relaxing!
