About Colette Wakeman

We are from North Carolina and also Florida. We live next door and my husband loves to bass fish from November - May.

Colette Wakeman purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Colette Wakeman chose Lake Placid

Our lakehouse cottage is a step above typical rentals here, not to mention that it is directly on the lake. We try hard to provide "turn key" accommodations for our guests to not only be comfortable, but also to fish from the dock. You can also bring your boat, as we've just completed a new covered dock with an electric boat life for your convenience. For those who prefer bird watching, we have eagles, ospreys, sandhill crane, owls, wild turkeys and many other birds . . . occasionally even an otter.

Lake Placid is a non-pretentious old Florida town, known as one of the most interesting towns in Florida, boasting its array of almost 80 building-side murals. Take the walking tour and learn about Florida's history (it's also fun to solve the puzzles located in the murals). This artsy little town also has a clown school and creatively constructed mailboxes.

This is a beautiful place and we loved it.

If you would like a beautiful view of one of Florida's best fishing lakes, then this is for you. Lake Istokpoga is beautiful and the birds are so beautiful. Remember that I said fishing lake. This lake has many, many alligators and no place on it is safe for swimming, jet skies, water skies or anything that is not on land or in a boat. The owners are wonderful people and very friendly. The home is very nice and and well stocked with everything you need to make you feel welcome and relaxed. Bring your boat and fishing equipment! The Lake is only around 4 to 5 feet deep on average, and has a lot of Lilly pads and pencil grass for cover. Bass boats and pontoons work well on this lake while deep hull boats do not. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
