Secluded Lakehouse w/ 3 Bedrm, 2 bath, Garage, sleeps 8, fishing or boating

Ultimate Seclusion

This private home that sleeps 8 is tucked away on beautiful Lake Marion and is the perfect naturist hideaway from the hustle and bustle, yet it is still only 20 minutes from fine dining and shopping. Lake Marion is large, 3 miles long by 2 miles wide, and it is perfect for fishing (large bass. Stripers, bluegill, crappie and more), boating, jet skiing, just quiet cruising or even arriving by seaplane!

This special hideaway is nestled in a tiny gated community of only 6 homes along the lake. This house provides total seclusion since it is completely surrounded by only Lake Marion and many acres of undeveloped forest (see photos). The home is a 3 bedroom and 2 bath layout that can sleep 8 comfortably (1 king, 2 queens, a toddler day bed and fold out king). All the rooms are on the second floor with covered parking for up to 2 cars below.

The home is situated about 40 minutes Southwest of Orlando and an hour East of Tampa. Also, it is only 20 minutes from Winter Haven and Legoland. The location is secluded yet it is only 7 minutes from the nearest Publix grocery or Manny’s Steakhouse with Walmart and Lowe’s hardware an additional 3 minutes away. Shopping malls are only 20 minutes away.

Home has 2 large TVs with DirectTV and internet Wi-Fi for those that need to get away, but can’t be without their web service.

KITCHEN and APPLIANCES

Full kitchen with all appliances (electric stove, large refrigerator with icemaker, microwave, dishwasher, small toaster oven), laundry room has large capacity washer and dryer setup.

The property is almost an acre and a half of manicured lawn. Lake Frontage is huge at over 250 feet and the private dock is over 160 feet long which can dock most any size boat that you have. Although the lake is huge, there is very light boat traffic.

What makes this House unique

If you want total seclusion for a while this is it!!! However, you are only a few minutes drive from the grocery store, pharmacy, gas station, hardware store or even the Walmart. Lake Marion is a huge lake that handles any size boat that you can launch from a trailer. It is a very popular fishing location with many great fishing lakes nearby. The home is fully stocked with all the essentials, just bring your own food, wine or beer. 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 for convenience.

                                                                Great spring break stay

                                                                B K.Cary

                                                                Great property on the lake. The house is fully stocked and has all you need to relax. Screened in porch is great. We used the paddle boat, row boat and the little motorized boat. The dock is nice and long and great for fishing. We didn't have all that much luck fishing, but it was a great spot to relax. Sunrise on the dock is wonderful, listening to all of the wildlife. Only negative was the bugs in the back yard, but that is no fault of the owners, just that time of year in Florida, by a lake. Bug spray helped though. Fire pit and all of the games are a nice touch.

                                                                The owners were great and made sure we had everything we needed.

                                                                Great family place on the lake.

                                                                Judy L.

                                                                The house on the lake was very comfortable and well maintained. Everything was clean and the bedrooms and bathrooms were dust free! The kitchen was well supplied with any condiment you might need and there was the best selection of utensils and cook ware i have ever encountered in a rental property. Would definitely recommend this if you enjoyy solitude and want to enjoy the outdoors. To truly enjoy the fishing on the lake i recommend people bring their own boat. The owners were very pleasant and went out of their way to ensure all needs were met.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Dear Terry and Judy,

                                                                So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our lake house. I wanted to thank you for the wonderful review and taking such good care of our home.

                                                                Your feedback and suggestions are encouraged so we can better serve our guest and ensure a wonderful vacation. So please reach out and let us know what we could do to improve your stay in the future. I agree that having your own boat to explore our large lake would be wonderful. With a 160 foot dock our guest can bring almost any size boat.

                                                                On a side note, we are in the process of renovating our Pontoon Boat and hope to be able to make that available to our guest in the near future.

                                                                We look forward to having you stay with us again next year!

                                                                It was a pleasure having you stay at our lake house. So happy you enjoyed your vacation. We appreciated your feedback and communication during your stay. Thank you for taking such good care of our home, we hope to have you back again soon!

                                                                Sincerely,

                                                                Sharon & Brad

                                                                Perfect Place at a Perfect Time

                                                                This house is everything it was advertised to be and everything we wanted. It is set in a private little paradise with nothing to wake up to but a beautiful view of the lake. Everything that we needed was there and more. The hosts were extremely accommodating and easy to reach. The added pleasure was that our dog was very welcome. The house was secluded but close to many Florida attractions. We explored the surrounding areas but loved to come home to the peace and quiet of "our house".

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                It was a pleasure speaking with you periodically throughout your stay. We appreciated your willingness to call and/or text with questions, as we welcome the opportunity to help make your stay the best vacation possible.

                                                                Brad and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our lake house. We can't thank you enough for taking such good care of our home and hope to see you back again next year.

                                                                Sincerely,

                                                                Sharon and Brad

                                                                Lovely Spot

                                                                Beverley H.

                                                                You will find yourself back in the times of Old Florida with dense foliage all around filled with different animals and waterfowl. If you want you can just sit back and enjoy the isolation and wildlife or if you want to do more, the property is close to many attractions. We hope to make in a yearly event. Our pup had the best time of his life.

                                                                Dear Bev,

                                                                So happy you enjoyed your stay at our lake house! I really enjoyed seeing your photo of the Bald Eagle eating a fish near the shore. We can't thank you enough for taking care of our home. We look forward to having you back next year!

                                                                Sincerely,

                                                                Sharon and Brad

                                                                Sweet Seclusion

                                                                Summer B.

                                                                This property is beautiful and well-maintained. We were very comfortable inside the home (The blankets are so plush!), but we spent much of the day relaxing on the patio, playing in the huge yard, or taking our boat out on the lake. There is very little light pollution at night, so the view of the stars was spectacular from the dock. We were certainly stay here again! Thank you for sharing your incredible home with us, Brad and Sharon.

                                                                Dear Summer,

                                                                We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our Lake House and that you, your children and husband were able to spend quality time as a family after his return from military deployment. We would like to thank your husband for his service to our Country.

                                                                We too find the views over the lake to be amazing. My favorite moments are getting up early to watch the sunrise over the lake, playing with my grandkids and my dogs in the back yard. The seclusion allows for an opportunity to relax and focus on family.

                                                                I also wanted to thank you for taking such good care of our home, we look forward to having you stay with us again next year!
