The Cedar House of Deland is a beautifully furnished large 3 bedroom, 1 bath home on 2 beautiful acres within the city limits of Deland. With two queen bedrooms and a king, it sleeps six very comfortably. The master bedroom has its own sitting area and its own entrance from the outside and is located on the opposite side from the other two bedrooms in case you need extra privacy. The second bedroom with a view of the landscaped property, has two huge walk in closets. We've even had guests who used one for their baby's room- we have a crib if needed.The black canopied bed of bedroom three adds an interesting flair to the decor. Both the second and third bedrooms share the hallway with the remodeled bath and large walk in pantry for the kitchen. The bath has two granite topped vanities making it easy for two people to get ready to go out at the same time. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make your favorite meals, including pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker with coffee,and linens. The laundry room is right off the kitchen with a door leading to the privacy fenced back yard. The dining area is large with sufficient room for a four seat oak dining table and china hutch as well as a marble bistro table for two.
