Welcome to our home in Lake Placid, Florida, located in Highlands County, 100 miles south of Orlando on US 27, 100 miles southeast of Tampa and 100 miles northwest of West Palm Beach, Lake Placid is 'in the center of everything while in the middle of nowhere.' Known as the 'Caladium Capital of the World', Lake Placid is a small town with friendly people in the middle of Florida, safe from crime and the fast pace of the typical Florida big city.

Our spacious home is located on Lake Clay, a large, sandy bottomlake with clear, clean water ideal for fishing and water sports. On a private, dead-end street, our 3300 square foot, beautifully furnished one-story, 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is situated on two sprawling lakefront lots with 202 ft. of beautifully landscaped lakefront. Enjoy a beautiful view of the lake from every room in the house. Perfectly located, you can actually walk to Publix, restaurants, etc.

It's perfect for relaxing or entertaining, with a screened 8' x 20’ porch with seating for 10 people overlooking the lake, an oversized dock, large entertainment deck, and a strip of sandy beach. Our dock will accommodate jet skis/boats. And pets are welcome, if they are house-trained.

About John DiPaolo

We have owned this property for over 12 years and our guests have felt at home when they visit. We accommodate your needs to make you comfortable.

John DiPaolo purchased this House in 2004

Why John DiPaolo chose Sylvan Shores

We chose Lake Placid because is a small, friendly town perfect for getting away from the city. The lakes are beautiful and it's the perfect place to bring kids and friends for a weekend of fun on the lake. Lake Clay is perfect for boating, jet skiing, tubing, and fishing because it is big but not SO big that the water is choppy.

What makes this House unique

Our house is at the end of the lake on a dead-end street and totally private. We are on two lakefront lots and the front and back yard are huge, perfect for letting your pet run around. Our location is ideal because we are feet away from US 27 in the center of town, walking distance to Publix and other shopping.

To start out the Owner John is a Gentlemen and extremely helpful, his Cabin is amazing, its location allows you to enjoy beautiful Sunrises and amazing Sunsets. Bass fishing from the Dock was incredible every day I had a few catches including an huge 20 lbs. This is our second visit to John''s beautiful Lake House and we just cannot get enough of it. My kids and dogs had a blast swimming in the lake. The House it self it built perfectly, from the bedroom to the leaving room to the kitchen all have amazing lake view. Extremely peaceful and accommodating place..... Thank you John
