About Dean Ellis

Our family has used this lake house as our get away from it all escape from reality. We have been pressured for many years to rent this property so everyone can get to enjoy one of Florida's most hidden and unusual secrets. Henry David Thoreau said ' A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive features' A lake with a house in the middle of it is nature as it's best. We are very sorry we can't share our Lake House Blue with Mr. Thoreau, but we are sure he would love it....

Dean Ellis purchased this house in 1978

Why Dean Ellis chose Crescent City

We bought this lake house because we wanted to get back to the old Florida of days gone by. This area has changed very little compare to other parts of Florida. Just 25 miles North in Palatka was as far south people came around the turn of the 20th century. The great people of that era names like President Grant, Mrs. Lincoln, wanted to see the wild Florida and all it's natural wonders. Palatka had as many 100 Paddle Wheel boats tied up at the city docks. Years later Babe Ruth came a couple of years and taught a base ball school. Highway 17 is the original highway to Florida as well as US1 on the East coast. These are the things that I saw when my parents brought me thru this area in the 1950's. It made a lasting impression on me and I get to enjoy this area today just like I was a kid again...

What makes this house unique

This is a one of a kind home with class, modern features, and a view from every window and door. Wildlife is all around and likes to show off for our guest. Bald Eagles,Osprey's, Ducks,Blue Heron's,White Egret's, even an occasional Manatee. This is just the beginning because every month has a different supply of nature's best. Come experience the wonders of nature at it best....

An Experience That Cannot be Beat!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Our 30th anniversary experience at Lake House Blue will always hold a very special meaning and memory in our hearts! The pictures do not do this awesome home on the lake justice. You MUST experience this home for yourself! It is so very comfortable and decorated perfectly! The owners are so very personable and a joy to work with! It rained both days we were there, however, that did not deter our enjoyment of how very special this home makes you feel. Complete relaxation over takes you once you walk down the dock to the house and open the door and you just melt! Ahhhhhhhh, wow, look how awesome this place is is all you will be able to say upon arrival. The sunrise is right there unobstucted from nothing! Fish jumping everwhere! Peace and Quiet abound. This is the most serene place in Florida I do believe and I am a Florida native. We saw 4 eagles and many other birds as well. We visited 3 Bananas Restaurant as suggested by Dean and told them we were friends of Dean and they could not say enough good about Dean! They also treated us like royalty! Thanks, Dean and Amy for making our special day getaway one we will NEVER forget! And thank you so much for making it possible for others to share your beautiful Lake House Blue!~ May God Bless You and yours!

Owner's Response: WOW....what a review .....It is so satifying to have someone appreciate your efforts to provide a retreat that people feel at home. We have always thought that mother nature has given us a front row seat to her inter world and the very least we could do is make sure we do our part to compliment her wounderful display. The fact that every day is a different show than the day before never gets old. Having GREAT guest like these expressing there experiences back to us is what our world is all about... Thank you so very much....

Magical

  • 5 out of 5
This place is truly magical and offers everything you need for a wonderful time, should it be fishing around the house (literally) to relaxing with a front row seat to nature's wonders. It's like being on a five star grande size house boat but without the rocking. Everything in this home is top notch, fully stocked and the decor so pleasing. Though I was hard pressed at times to leave the peace and tranquility of this floating paradise, I did manage to fill my Land Rover to the top with wonderful treasures from several antique stores nearby. Our week ended with a rainbow that started on the water right in front of the house and laid across the lake until it moved to the horizon where it met up with another rainbow giving us a double magical pleasure. This was our sign that the Lake House Blue was now a part of us and couldn't wait to get back. Won't have to wait long since we're already booked for a two week stay in November. Thank you for sharing the magic. -Kim and Roland

Owner's Response: This is a wonderful review and we never get tired of this positive feedback for our hard work in keeping this home in the best condition we can. We have owned this home for over 30 years and we just kept it for ourselves with family and friends until a few years ago. We were not sure that guests would appreciate our efforts fully. Guests like these are what we always hoped for, but were not sure we would get. We love to share our wonderful piece of paradise with anyone who can appreciate what nature has provided. We are so glad to welcome this family to our Lake House Blue family. We are looking forward to their next visit and we are so glad that they love our home as much as we do......Thank you for a great review...

Florida Gem!!!

  • 5 out of 5
I'm born and raised in Florida and have traveled the entire state. This is my new favorite place. I wish it were mine. Truly a National Geographic setting. Everything from otters to ospreys to gators. We had sunshine and storms. The storms were great to watch being out over the water. We spent most of our time on the porches or fishing or crabbing outside. Accommodations are impeccable! Everything is provided for you except food. Even very nice crab traps! The house is beautiful. The pictures don't quite give it justice. We will be back very soon and again and again thereafter!!!

Absolutely stunning!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the most relaxed and refreshing trip we have been on! I'm from Florida and didn't know such an amazing place existed. It's a true hidden gem! The owner's were more than accommodating. I really didn't know people like this even existed anymore.

My husband and children love to fish so this was the perfect place for them. It was great bonding time with our children! My kids are 12 and 8 and they had so much fun there and can't wait to go back!

If you are looking for a relaxing get away with your family this is the place to be. We plan on making this a family tradition trip :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for a GREAT review. We love guest who know how to have a good time, and we are so glad they chose our Lake House Blue for there get away. We really owe this family a big thank you for being so understanding when the central air conditioning system broke. But they would not let that stop them from having a good time. It is so nice having nice guest you can talk too easily when the unexpected occurs. Margie and Mike are a class act and I beleive we became good friends because of this problem. We are looking forward to their return visit. THANKS GUYS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It was a pleasure doing business with you both...

Holy Smokes!

  • 5 out of 5
We made a week-long whirlwind North Florida road trip and Lake House Blue was on our itinerary. Not only was she the highlight of our vacation, but quite possibly the highlight of anywhere I have ever lodged anywhere in the state as a lifelong Florida resident with a fair amount of travel under my belt. If the sheer beauty, comfort and uniqueness of this home, literally ON the water, doesn't strike you as a dream, the fact that hosts Dean and Amy have accounted for everything one could possibly need or want prior to arrival will. I can't recommend Lake House Blue enough. If you're a fisher person, all the better. If you're not, it doesn't make a lick of difference. You'll love every minute of staying here, nonetheless. This is an amazing place!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jason, It was a pleasure to have you at Lake House Blue. Thank you for a great review, and we appreciate it very much. Reviews like these just makes Amy and I work harder to keep our guest pleased. It doesn't say to us, you have done a good job and let's just rest on our sucess and not change a thing. For us it says, what else can we do to provide our renters a great vacation? We cherish our vacations and we know our guest do the same. A great vacation is something everyone hopes to have and we want to do everything we can to uphold our end of the bargin.......Thanks again......Amy and Dean

Awesome Lake House, Awesome 9 day Vacation!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you Dean and Amy for sharing your little slice of heaven with us! We had the most wonderful 9 days at your lake house. We caught some HUGE red fish right off the back porch! And the manatees!!! I have never seen anything like it. One morning we woke up to find a PILE of about 10 manatees right next to the front dock. They were climbing all over one another, it was a site we will probably never see again. Amy posted the picture I sent her on the Lake House Blue facebook page! The owners make every effort for you to have everything you need. We fished, rented a pontoon boat from Mcgee's Boat rental for 7 days (he is very reasonably priced). The kids loved fishing from the boat and jumping off of it and swimming in the middle of the lake! This was our second stay at Lake House Blue, and we will definitely come back again and again!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Charlotte for your kind words. You have seen something that no one in our family and frends has ever seen. 10 Manatees.....We have seen one or two on occasion but never this many....We will always treasure your picture...I am also glad you said something about the boat rental guy...He does a nice job and his prices seem to be fair. We get a lot of questions about boat rentals and you have helped us with sharing your experience... Thank you very much....
