The lighting in the kitchen and living room was not very good. The overhead lights worked but the bulbs were very dim. The bedrooms were great as far as lighting goes. The water has a sulfur smell, which will surprise those not used to it.
But you can't help but love the location if you want to be near the water and have peace and quiet.
This is a wonderful place to stay if you are seeking quiet. The home sits on 500 acre Lake Broward, with four acres surrounding the home. At times, all that can be heard are the cries of the sand hill cranes. (Of course at other times civilization intrudes, but the quiet is what you remember!)
The home is older, as are the furnishings, but the layout it great with the separate "mother-in-law" suite, and there is plenty of space for large families. The back porches (both screened and unscreened) offer superb views of the lake. Our grand children visited every week end, and enjoyed fishing from the dock and taking out the kayaks.
The home sits on a quiet road with little traffic. Just 1/4 mile down the road is the entrance to Dunns Creek State Park, where you can walk with even less traffic. Be sure to visit Ravine Gardens State Park in Palatka, as well as Corky Bells seafood restaurant with lovely views along the St. John's River.
