About Laurel Hall

I am an engineer and I have owned my own company since 2001. I built this house with a guest house for my parents. My parents are gone and this beautiful house has been empty. The house is so adorable and I want it to have life again, that's why I am sharing it with lucky vacationers/business travelers.

Laurel Hall purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Laurel Hall chose Lake Keystone

When we moved to Florida from Oklahoma, we initially rented a home in this area of Tampa for a year to make a decision about what area of time would be perfect for us. We ended up loving the Odessa area. Odessa is peaceful with a country feel yet it is close to all area attractions and business areas...the best of both worlds.

What makes this cottage unique

The property and the lake are so beautiful and peaceful. This property is also VERY pet friendly.


This cottage will be decorated in farmhouse style and will be very near the lake with a large porch.

Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom guest house was perfect for me, my wife and Sheltie. There was separate entrance that provided easy access to the apartment, which was very nice, clean and nicely furnished. We met Laurel who was a great host and worked with us in arriving late.

Enjoyed out stay!

  • 3 of 5

Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is nicely furnished and Laurel was helpful and an excellent host. Beautiful location and we felt welcomed and at home. Suggestion to Laurel:

It would have been nice to have some basic cooking stuff, like salt & pepper, cooking oil so we didn't have to buy it, plus bottled water for coffee and drinking.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely guest house in a country setting, but still convenient to everything in the Tampa area. The interior is beautifully decorated and well equipped. After busy days of running our dogs to doggie daycare (we highly recommend Happy Tails in Land O' Lakes), and visiting friends and family, it was wonderful to come back to this beautiful, relaxing guest house. The owner/hostess will make you feel right at home. We can't thank Laurel enough for such a wonderful stay!

Beautiful Location, Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my mom, and my dog all had a lovely time at Laurel's place. They made sure we had everything we needed and took care of minor issues right away. They were great at communication, just a text, call, or 2-step walk away. This guest house is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and about a 40-minute scenic drive to a lovely beach on the Gulf. In the backyard there's a lovely lake to sit in front of and drink coffee in the morning. All in all a perfect little place to get away. We would definitely stay again and maybe do some more touristy things, but we had a relaxing long weekend July 7-10.
