                                                        This house is beautiful and spacious. There is a screened in back pouch to watch the sun rise. It has a well stocked kitchen and beautiful views. We enjoyed our stay very much and we are looking forward to next year. Thank You

                                                        Brian H.

                                                        We rented the home for a couple of weekends during May including Memorial Day Weekend. The owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with for any needs prior to arrival or while at the home. The home was just like the pictures presented. It was very nice, clean and actually larger than expected. The home was well stocked and appointed for renters. The boat ramp is just down the street and there is plenty of parking for trailers and vehicles if you have a boat at the residence. We also found the neighbors to be very welcoming and several came by and introduced themselves making us feel right at home. We loved our stay and would definitely rent the home again in the future.

                                                        Hi Brian, It was a pleasure having you stay as you were very accommodating as well. Hope to see you back anytime!

                                                        Beautifully decorated, comfortable house, with fully-equipped kitchen & peaceful lanai. Lovely!

                                                        Judy and John P.

                                                        The online pictures of this home showed an attractively furnished vacation home. It looked even better in person! We loved staying here as it was very clean and comfortable, with great views of Lake Placid from every window. Since we ate many of our meals here, I enjoyed using the well-equipped kitchen - a cook's dream. The owners have also decorated the place with so many nice plaques with delightful sayings. Really enjoyed discovering them and reading them.

                                                        It's a lovely, peaceful setting, and we enjoyed morning coffee in the screened-in lanai, and Happy Hours later on, after a fun day of golfing, shopping or touring the beautiful area. A trip to the Chamber of Commerce in town is a must. The staff is friendly and helpful, plus they show a video of Lake Placid, and a history of the 55 beautiful murals that Lake Placid is famous for. And don't miss the Caladium Arts and Crafts store downtown. Wow!

                                                        Melanie Ford, and her husband, Will, offer a lovely place to vacation, plus are very helpful, kind, prompt and easy to deal with. We would highly recommend this wonderful place! Enjoy!

                                                        Ginny B.

                                                        My husband and I rented this property for the month of February 2017. The lake house was very clean and full stocked with all the necessities of home. Waking up each morning to the sun rising started our days. The view from the lanai, over looking the lake was calming; listening to the sounds of the many species of birds or just watching the fishing boat and water skiers.. Even though we never met the owners, they we just a phone call away to answer any questions that arose. We would have definitely come back next February but someone else rented it for that month. I recommend this to both families and seniors.
