About the property

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.


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.

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.

Definitely will come back!

Great, quiet, private, clean, properly furnished property on large lakefront lot. The owners were wonderful and communicative. Everything went perfectly smooth. We stayed for four nights in early April 2017, and would definitely do so again.

Great Getaway on Beautiful Lake Marion

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Lori, 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! Best Regards, Sharon & Brad

Peaceful And Quiet Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not begin to show the beauty and peacefulness of this property. We spent a month here and loved every minute. The home is very clean and well stocked. The owners provide more than any other property we’ve stayed at. You literally only need clothes and food! All paper products, cleaning supplies, even spices and other cooking supplies are provided. Beds are very comfortable, lots of space for everyone. Games and toys for children, fishing rods and supplies for fishing, paddle boat, zodiac boat with electric motor, fire pit with wood supplied. It’s like a resort! But the best part is the beautiful property. Over an acre of sodded and landscaped yard leading to the lakeshore and dock. The lake is quiet. We saw few boats, actually more seaplanes! A variety of birds including water birds, hawks, eagles, kites. Every morning the air is filled with birdsong. The owners are super friendly, easy to deal with, accessible. I cannot say enough good things about this property. We hope to return and enjoy it again. Even our little dog had the time of his life! And our granddaughters were enchanted with the Lake House! We have rented many homes through homeaway. This was far and away the best ever! Thanks, Brad and Sharon, for a great month!

The home is near all the Orlando theme parks, restaurants, and attractions. We are Floridians spending time near our grandkids so we didn’t go to the theme parks on this visit. Spending time here was better than a theme park as our granddaughters have annual passes to Disney and go all the time. Just wanted to mention the house is great for folks who want to visit theme parks and come home to peace and quiet with no crowds!!

Owner's Response: Dear Diane and Mike, Brad and I are so happy you and your grandkids enjoyed our little piece of paradise, we sure do appreciate you taking the time to write such a lovely review. When we made the decision to rent our vacation home, we made a commitment to offer the best possible vacation experience for our Guest. A big part of being able to relax on vacation is having everything you could possibly need when you arrive so you can immediately start to enjoy your vacation. With that in mind, we stocked our lake house with just about everything possible not only to minimize the extra cost for our Guest but more importantly, we didn't want our guest to spend precious vacation time shopping for supplies. Honestly in our opinion, every vacation home should be well stocked with appliances, pots, dishes, utensils, paper products, towels, linens, non perishable condiments and spices. For me, I want the vacation home to be clean and it's extremely important the beds are comfortable so we put thick mattress pads on every bed . We make sure our Guest have what we would want, if we were renting a vacation home. Brad and I are committed to ensuring our Guest have the best possible vacation so we welcome your feedback on how we can improve upon your vacation experience. Thank you for taking such great care of our home, we hope you'll be able to stay with us again as it was a pleasure having you as our guest. Best Regards, Sharon and Brad

Great spring break stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Bill, So happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at our lake house. Brad and I came up this weekend to do some updates, we expanded the patio area where the fire pit is to provide more room to seating. We've also almost completed renovations on the Pontoon Boat, so the next time you come up, we should be able to offer the Pontoon Boat as another option for fishing or just touring (Lake Marion). Luckily the bugs you saw only show up a few times each year, usually when it's dry and hot. We saw them when we arrived yesterday but they were gone today. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to you staying with us the next time you vacation here in Florida. Best Regards, Sharon & Brad
