Our lakefront cottage is called "Remember When".
Remember when life was simpler during those family get-a-ways to the lake? You can recreate yesteryear when retreating to "Remember When". Extensive upgrades and renovations were just completed in March of 2016! This lakefront home offers stunning views and quiet lakefront living.
You'll love the wood planked walls, wood ceilings, and wood floors, along with the wide open lakefront vistas through the many large windows. A spacious deck off the sun room offers commanding views of the lake. At about 30 feet in elevation above the lake level, you will love spending leisure time here, both day and night!
The large dock has both open and covered areas. The covered areas are great during the summer mid-day heat and during a passing rain shower. Plenty of space for fishing on this 80 foot wide x 45 foot deep dock area!
One of the two covered boat slips is available for your boat with advance notice. There is even a lake level platform for easy access to your kayak or canoe! A Leon County maintained cement boat ramp with 2 floating docks is available nearby down the street. NOTE: Please DO NOT tie up your boat to our dock overnight. Our available boat slip is 8 1/2 feet wide. The water depth is 2' deep. The boat lift board is 1' tall so therefore when the lift is lowered to the lake bottom you must not have a draft of more than 1'. The available boat slip and lift are not designed for large boats. A 17' to 18' foot long or less boat is best.
Two bedrooms and one full bath are located on the main level. There is a downstairs, ground level, "walk out basement" bedroom with lots of extra sleeping space. This downstairs bedroom has it's own covered AND screened-in lanai. A nice place to hang out during the mid day sun or passing rain shower! This particular downstairs space offers privacy and separation for an extra couple or or adult kids.
For the convenience of coming off the dock or lake along with the ground floor bedroom, there is a new outdoor covered and private bathroom that features a hot/cold shower, toilet and sink, each in it's own room. Even a sitting area! This is located at the entrance to the walkout basement bedroom. There is a covered walkway from the downstairs bedroom to the outdoor bathroom in case it rains. You'll love how this new addition enhances lake life and even makes you feel like you're in the mountains!
There are just 3 steps up to the main level front door. The downstairs is located down some exterior stairs at ground level as well. "Remember When" is advantageous for folks that prefer not to navigate lots of stairs.
The front of the home offers plenty of parking, even for your boat trailer. Please call or email us anytime, day or night, with any questions or to secure your lakefront get-a-way. We'd love for you to create memories at our lake house so that you'll also fondly "Remember When".

$85.00 Cleaning fee which includes clean linens and bath towels.
If you bring your dog, we have a $25.00 pet fee. We simply ask that they'd be well behaved & trained, current on flea/tick meds, non-scratchers on doors/windows/furniture, to keep them off the furniture & beds, and that you'd pick up after them in the yard and neighborhood. Due to the fact that your pet is not familiar with his/her surroundings at the house, please bring a kennel in case you plan to leave him/her alone. Lastly, please keep your doggies from barking so as to not disturb the neighbors.
If you need to cancel, we provide a refund, (minus the 12.5% tax that we do not pursue which acts as our administrative fee), only if we're able to re-rent the dates that you had been holding, which had prevented anyone else from reserving those dates. Purchasing trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended because you never know what unexpected life event could occur.
