Secluded Lakehouse w/ 3 Bedrm, 2 bath, Garage, sleeps 8, fishing or boating
About Sharon Cline
My husband and I searched for years to find a perfect vacation home that our family to gather on Holidays and weekends. We have five grandchildren and this Lake House was centrally located between our children with one daughter in Orlando and the other in Sarasota, FL. Our family enjoys jet skiing, going out on the pontoon boat and just relaxing together creating family memories. We quickly discovered that we had a piece of paradise that could be shared with other families so we listed our home on VRBO.
Why Sharon Cline chose Haines City
Four years ago when we first saw this property we instantly fell in love with it's beauty, the view is breathtaking. We love that it's a private community of six homes, yet our lake house is surrounded by woods on three sides so we are very secluded. Everytime we visit, the stress of work and our busy lives melt away. We have Golden Retrievers and our dogs love our lake house so much that when we try to leave to head back home, it's the only time they refuse to get in the car.
What makes this House unique
If you want total seclusion for a while this is it!!! Lake Marion is a huge lake, 3 miles long and 2 miles wide. Although there are few boats on the lake, motor boats are allowed so Lake Marion can accommodate any size boat that you can launch from a trailer. We have a 160 foot dock which is the longest dock on the lake with an 8ft x 10ft platform you can fish from or just sit and relax. It is a very popular fishing location with many great fishing lakes nearby. However, you are only a few minutes drive from the shopping, movie theater, grocery store, pharmacy, gas station, hardware store or even Super Walmart. The home is fully stocked with all the essentials, just bring your own food, wine or beer. We feel having a well stocked vacation home is so important when vacationing so we stock our home with the what we would want. Our guest should not have to purchase anything other than food. I am OCD about having a clean home so our cleaning crew conducts a "Spring Cleaning" every time a Guest checks out and before a new Guest checks in. I insist on comfortable beds so all of our beds have thick mattress pads and plenty of extra pillows. There are plenty of extra linens and towels in the linen closet as well as as toys, games and puzzles for family fun. A fully covered garage allows you to park your vehicle inside and stay dry if it is raining outside with an inside set of stairs leading up to the main house for convenience. Out on the lawn we have a fire pit and lawn furniture so in the cooler months you can enjoy roasting marshmallows with your family. We love animals so pets are always welcome. Obviously as grand parents we love kids too, so children are welcome of all ages.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Thank you! Sharon and Brad have unmatched hospitality and communication. Our reservations were cancelled last minute and I stumbled across their amazing lake house. It was a true blessing. The pictures do not do this property justice. It is well stocked with not only essentials, but extras to make your stay less stressful. Sharon was in communication with me throughout the entire trip to insure everything was accessible and to help in any way. We were greeted with breakfast items, fruit, some goodies for our kids, and special treats for our dogs. This made my vacation! The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable with quality linens and bedding. There were plenty of extra linens and blankets. The bathrooms were stocked with a few extras in case you may have forgotten your soap, lotion, etc. The kitchen had all the "tools" and dishes you would need to prepare any meal. The pantry was stocked with cooking necessities and paper goods were also provided. The house was well maintained and was simply a breath of fresh air! Thr furniture was comfortable and plenty of sitting room for our family. The porch was fantastic at night with the cool breeze. The view of the lake was incredible and the privacy was great after the hustle and bustle of Disney. It is private, but well within a short drive of Walmart, Publix, and restaurants. It is great for a Disney trip if you want to relax after navigating the parks all day. We even came back for dinner and to recharge before returning to Disney for the fireworks.
We will return any time we are headed back and it's available. It will be our first choice. It is just the perfect place for our entire family (parents, kids, and fur babies) to truly relax and just recharge. Thank you again Sharon and Brad. We are truly grateful for your home and hospitality!

Sharon and I really appreciate the wonderful and thoughtful review of our piece of paradise.
So glad to hear you had a wonderful time during your stay.
Sharon works hard to make sure our guests are as comfortable there as we are when we go.
We were lucky enough to find this gem for our weekend getaways.
I know what you mean because Disney and the other amusement parks are a blast for the family, but by the end of the day you are so exhausted you need to just veg out.
Hopefully, you and the family had a chance to take the zodiac or the pedal boat out on the lake.
Again, thanks for being such considerate guests and please come back when get the chance, we would love to have you back.
Best wishes to you, Landon, Cam, Laney and your fur babies Barney and Boris.

Absolutely gorgeous and relaxing!
Thank you Brad and Sharon for sharing your lakehouse. The views are amazing! This house is everything described and more. From beautiful sunrises, fishing, and the gracious hospitality from the owners, we couldn't have been more blessed and appreciative. Thank you again for making the puppies feel as welcomed. They loved the yard and toys. We will be back!!
We are so happy you enjoyed our lake house as much as we do. I sat on the dock this morning to watch the sunrise, the view was amazing. We hope to see you again next year, you and your family will always be welcome back! I can't thank you enough for taking such good care of our home, it was obvious that you took care of our home as though it was your own. I'm at the lake house week as we prepare to have NEW flooring installed throughout the house. We decided to get rid of the laminate and upgrade our flooring. We will be updating our VRBO photos of the new flooring next week.
We wish you and your family a wonder Holiday and very happy New Year!

Best rental ever!
This lake house rental is the best! It was perfect for us (2 adult couples)! It was so very clean and relaxing. I loved that it was quite and private. Sharon and Brad went out of their way to stock their rental with everything you could think of and possibly need! They even went out of their way to stock the fridge with milk, OJ, bottled water and a fruit bowl. And they even provided us with cereal, english muffins, and bananas! I've rented several rentals from HomeAway (I've always had a great experience) but have never seen a rental so well stocked and owners that went out of their way to provide all that food. Not only that, but Sharon and Brad were super accommodating with an offer of early check in and late check out. They are very easy to communicate with and replied quickly to all of my questions. The lake house itself is so inviting and comfortable. The sofa is so comfy and cool with reclining chairs and even adjusting headrest! The recliner and huge beanbag chair are super comfy too. The bedrooms were plenty big (the master has a walk in closet) and the king size bed was really comfortable (much better then my own bed at home!). We had more than enough linens and towels and everything was so very clean! The bathrooms were perfect too. The kitchen was the most stocked kitchen I have seen in a rental! Everything we needed to cook was there and they even have a Keurig (with coffee pods) and a crockpot! All the dishware/pots & pans were in great condition. If we needed any cleaning supplies, they were there too. And they even stocked dishwasher detergent and washer/dryer detergents too! The enclosed porch is fabulous and was a great place to eat breakfast and watch the sunrise; we opened the windows and enjoyed the cool breeze and fresh air. If all that wasn't enough, I loved that I could bring my two little senior dogs with me. This is seriously the best rental I've stayed at! Thank you Sharon and Brad! If we're ever in Haines City again, I will definitely want to rent your lake house again!
Brad and I very much appreciate your amazing review of our Lake House. It's so rewarding to see that you enjoyed our home and that your vacation was everything you had hoped it would be. We are committed to providing the best experience possible for our Guest by ensuring you have a stress free vacation. We are happy to hear that you brought your furry babies on vacation with you. We love all pets and often travel with our Golden Retrievers. We also wanted to thank you for taking such good care of our home. We would welcome you back any time. Have a wonderful Holiday Season!
Best Regards, Sharon and Brad
A beautiful lake front property
We were remodeling our home and needed a place to stay for 2 weeks that accepted pets and had a driveway to park our boat. We hit the jackpot. What a great secluded getaway. Great house stocked with everything and more! Right on beautiful lake Marion. If your family is looking for a hideaway on a lake, close to the attractions, that is comfortable and fun, you found your place. Met with the owner Sharon who ensured all our needs were not only met but exceeded.
What kept us from giving 5 stars is that due to the remoteness the satellite internet is s l o w. Not a big deal and maybe even a benefit for those looking for off-the-grid time.
Thanks for the nice review of our lake house. Sorry that our internet/WiFi satellite (HughesNet) service wasn't as robust as a dedicated cable company system like Comcast, but Satellite service was our only alternative here--peacefully tucked away from all the hectic hustle and bustle in the city. However, at least we do have the highest level of service HughesNet can provide. BTW, hope all your upgrades on your new home are finished and looking good.

Great Getaway on Beautiful Lake Marion
We enjoyed a wonderful Labor Day weekend at this beautiful house. We have rented homes all over the world and this house was the most well stocked we have ever stayed in. It was more like staying at a friends home than a rental. The beds were very comfortable and all the linens and towels were high end. The kitchen is well equipped and efficient. Adjacent is a nice large table for the whole family to gather for meals - with a great view of the lake. The family room is very large with a big screen TV and a super nice recliner sofa. The screened in patio was amazing! When you opened the windows a beautiful breeze blew through making it my favorite place to hang out. The yard is simply unbelievable. Our German Shepard was in heaven running around on the grass. The lake was great - I skied every day. We only saw 3 other boats the entire weekend. The dock is nice and sturdy - we were able to leave our boat tied up overnight which was awesome for the early morning ski runs. I would highly recommend this property to all lake lovers. The owners Sharon and Brad were so nice and accommodating. They responded to emails and texts almost instantly. You can tell they really care and want you to have a great experience.
Thank you for the lovely review. It means a lot to Brad and I that our guest enjoy their stay at our lake house. We want your experience to be the best vacation possible.
My Golden Retrievers also love playing in the back yard. Jasmine my female Golden will sit in the middle of the yard for hours just gazing out over the water. When it's time to head back home, we can hardly get my dogs to leave.
Thank you for taking such good care of our home, we hope to have you back again next year!
