It's Your Time to RELAX!
Come enjoy the Lake Weir Getaway on sparkling Lake Weir. The Lake Weir Getaway is nestled among the massive Live Oak trees and white sandy beaches that make Lake Weir such a special place to create great Florida memories. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Nature is alive here as bald eagles, osprey, herons, egrets, ducks and otters make their homes on Lake Weir. The lake is also well known by fishermen for its plentiful large mouth bass, blue gill and crappie. You're also welcome to bring your boat and use our dock while you're here. There's plenty of room to park your trailer. Wake boarding, water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing are just a few of the fun water sports you can enjoy on the lake. Our kids love jumping off the dock and playing in the sandy shallows. We've loaded our white sandy beach with custom built Adirondack chairs for you to move around to find that perfect spot to wiggle your toes in the sand or snuggle in close to a beach bonfire to roast
marshmallows under the stars. You'll be about 15 minutes from Publix Supermarket, WalMart, Sams Club and every other national retailer you could think of, so don't sweat it if you forget something. And there's WiFi here to help you stay connected. Disney, Universal and the other Orlando attractions are about an hour and a half drive from your North Shore Getaway. The Ocala National Forest boundary is 10 minutes away. The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf coast are each about an hour and a half drive and offer tons of things to see and places to visit. Explore historic St. Augustine. Swim with the manatees at Crystal River. Kayak and snorkel down crystal clear Rainbow River. Mountain bike on the Santos Trail. Fish for world class tarpon, redfish and trout. Or get unplugged and just relax! This is a duplex and we live next door, so if you're looking for a party house or place for a large family reunion, North Shore Getaway probably isn't for you. A maximum of 7 guests are allowed on the property and there's enough room to park three vehicles. NO PETS allowed, however, there are kennels and pet care facilities available in the area. This is a great lake house for rent in Central Florida.

About Bartow McDonald
We have lived on Lake Weir for 11 years and love it! We're an outdoor kinda family and have been so blessed to experience the wonder of this beautiful part of the world. We can load you up with ideas for adventure and getting the most out of your time here at the North Shore Getaway.
Bartow McDonald purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Bartow McDonald chose Ocklawaha
Nestled on the North Shore under the massive and ancient live oaks, you'll enjoy the magnificent serenity and beautiful waterfront that make Lake Weir so wonderful. From our naturally white sandy beach, you can watch the eagles and ospreys fly against the dramatic sunrises and sunsets. The lake's surface sparkles brilliantly during the day against an ever changing hue of blues and a full moon at night is simply magical. This is a great place to create happy memories.
What makes this Condo unique
Yes, the sand really is naturally this white and many of these massive oak trees that surround you are hundreds of years old. Bring your boat or rent one on the lake. Disney is a day trip and you're 15 minutes from Publix and The Villages. The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico are an hour and a half drive.

Perfect Place on Lake Weir
This place was well worth it. This includes the hospitality by Bartow.
I would HIGHLY recommend it.
This was my 2nd stay at this property and it was so good. The property, its location, and the hospitality of the owners are the things that drew me back this year. The house and grounds are so comfortable and a good location to area stores, etc.
Our family had an amazing vacation at the Lake Weir Getaway. The house had everything you could need and was very clean! There were a lot of things to do to keep us busy. This was our second year here and we will definitely go back.
A pure delight, all the comforts of home in a wonderful setting.
The property speaks to the great hospitality extended by Bartlow and Laura. Without a doubt we would return! I highly recommend it for the quality and location.
Comfy, cozy & relaxing!
We stayed for a long weekend and are already planning our return visit! Owners are welcoming and accommodating and incredibly gracious.
Aside from bringing your own food/drinks & personal hygiene items, you are well provisioned! Towels, well-equipped kitchen, fire wood for the fire pit, it's all waiting for you!
It's an absolutely relaxing and lovely way to enjoy some quiet getaway time.
Can you tell that we loved it? We see many more visits in our future!!
Our hosts were very welcoming and kind. They were available both before and during our stay.
Our family was pleased with the house and we enjoyed the quiet beauty of the lakefront. The kayaks were fun and sitting on the beach watching the sunrise was a special memory.
An hour and a half drive from Disney, Universal and the other Orlando theme parks. Visit both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts while you're here.
