Wonderful weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for our 2 families to enjoy a weekend away together. Plenty of room for us all and not be in each others way. We'd stay here again.

Our group of four adults and six kids very much enjoyed our stay at the Victorian house in Lake City. The spacious home is beautifully furnished and is conveniently located. Our children went fishing, swam in the lake, and played tennis from dawn until dusk every day. The friendliness of the locals, the charm of the home, and the proximity of activities for the kids made our vacation extra special.

Spacious, Accomadating, Victorian style with a view

  • 4 of 5

This house was a perfect cozy little getaway for our family of 8 adults & 6 kiddos ( big enough that we didn't feel cramped). Very charming w/ a pretty view of the lake.It had a very Pinterest/ Vintage feel, which I love. Our trip was all about relaxing and bonding, so we took advantage of the amazing record collection, games, and videos. I would definitely repeat this trip again.

What a great experience!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a guys weekend and I must say, it was an excellent experience!! The house itself is very easy to find, and located in an excellent spot. There are tennis courts, basketball courts, a skating ramp, and 2 bars/restaurants all about a block away. The lake is right across the road and the front patio provides an amazing view...especially in the evening. All of the guests were very impressed with the property, and several inquired about staying here again with their families. All in all, I can't say enough good things about this house, it's location, and the owners. I look forward to staying here again...maybe sooner than later!!
