Enjoy a totally unique experience on beautiful Saddleback Lake
Hello! I've had the good fortune of traveling to amazing places and the experiences have often been enriched by outstanding hospitality. It's my wish to offer you the same at our family home stay. I love life, beauty and the art of living well through kindness, great food, friendships, art & a healthy lifestyle close to nature. While my kids are grown, you'll often find me baking in the kitchen, talking to the chickens or planning my next great adventure. I look forward to meeting you on yours.
Judi purchased this Cottage in 1956
Why Judi chose Lutz
Our home was designed and built by Elyse & Hubert Sheppard in 1956. I married into the family and moved into take care of Elyse in 1994. By this time the old cypress Florida cracker house was in need of a little TLC. It's hard to believe that over 24 years have passed, as have the folks who built the house and once called this home. I birthed and raised my children here, gardens have come and gone and now. With a lot of sweat equity I've spruced up the house, sectioned off the suite for guests and just completed the renovation of Miss Ruby, our Vintage Camper and her bathhouse.
