Property description

If you love to fish or just want to get away from the day to day hectic activities, then you have found the place. We are located on a canal directly connected to Lake Istokpoga, which is Florida's 5th largest lake where you can find some of the best bass fishing. Make sure to bring your boat!!! Covered boathouse with an electric lift. There is plenty of dock space which has a fish cleaning station. The boat ramp is conveniently located just two blocks away and there is plenty of room to store your trailer on the property. There is a bridge to go under from the house. An 8 foot beam should be fine and the center of the boat should not be higher than 5 feet. The yard is spacious for any outdoor activities and there is even a fire pit for those cold nights, so make sure you bring some marshmallows.

Country styled home is surrounded by acres of farmland, and if you are lucky the friendly cows even come to visit. This property is quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the incredible sunsets over Lake Istokpoga.

Covered breezeway between the home and garage has great views of the farm and canal. It has a bench seat, and 2 rocking chairs with cushions, so grab your morning sup of coffee and watch the sunrise.

Our home is fully furnished with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2 car garage. As you enter the home you will be in the bright sun room. This room has a loveseat, 2 chairs and a table. Great place to grab a book and kick back. There is a full sized washer and dryer and laundry detergent is supplied.

The living and dining room are very spacious. Living room has a sofa, loveseat, swivel rocking chair and a 47” flat screen TV. Also here you will find over 100 Dvd,s for your enjoyment along with many books, board games and puzzles. The dining room seats 4 and has a sliding glass door opening to the side patio which is a great place for barbequing. There is additional seating for 4 at the kitchen counter.

Kitchen is fully equipped. Refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Serving for 8 is supplied along with all your cookware and utensils needed for your meals. We supply basic pantry items and food storage.

Split bedroom plan. Master has a king sized bed with full bath, and 2nd bedroom has a full sized bed also with a full bath. Each room has 2 closets, a dresser, nightstands, alarm clock and ceiling fans.

Sliding glass doors open to the large patio which has windows all around allowing for a panoramic view of the canal. 27” TV with dvd player, couch, end tables, and a separate dining table for 4. So you can enjoy your meals while taking in the view.

For entertainment, shopping and restaurants we are approximately 10-15 miles from Sebring or Lake Placid, or you can check out some of the local establishments. There is a convenient store and a Dollar General just 10 minutes away where you can pick up all of your basic supplies.

So, book your vacation home today and see why people love to visit Lake Istokpoga.

Owner info

About the owner: We have lived in south Florida for over 20 years. Originally from New York, we decided one day to pack our bags and relocate to the sunshine state, after a cold winter with over 23 snow storms. We have always lived on a lake and enjoy being able to relax and enjoy the peaceful views. I own my own plumbing company and my wife works for a real estate office.

Why the Owner Chose Lorida, FL, USA:
We have bought and sold properties in the past, but now decided to purchase a home that others can enjoy and maybe even one day we will retire there. We have 2 boys who also love to fish and be on the water, which is another reason we decided to purchase this particular home. We find that the peacefullness of the area is something we really enjoy, and if we want a little more entertainment then it is just a short drive away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you love to fish you came to the right place. Some of the best bass fishing is right here at Lake Istokpoga. Step outside and within minutes you will be on the lake. Spacious outdoor breezeway allows for a view of the water, wildlife and farm animals all in one spot. A great place to start or end your day.
