About Jeanne & John

We also live on Lake Weir and love it! We work and participate in the near by Lady Lake (The Villages) community which has a lot of hometown activities and events but also has every convenience of a city. The area is a great place to work, raise kids and spend time with family and friends. Hope to see you here!

Awesome Rental, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house so much we stayed for 2 years! (the review would only let me go back to last March for our arrival date). What started as a short-term rental turned long term and the house was great. We've stayed in many vacation rentals and the house is very clean and well stocked. The beds are comfortable as well. John and Jeanne are great and very pleasant to work with. They will take care of any issues right away. The sunsets on the lake are beautiful and it is very peaceful sitting outside on the back deck. The home is in a safe neighborhood and the neighbors are great. You are far enough away from town to feel like a retreat, but have easy access to grocery stores and shopping. Highly recommend it!!

This home was spectacular and we enjoyed ourselves to much... John & Jeanne were great to work with and made sure that our stay was exceptional. The home was equipped with everything that we needed. It was beautiful and so very clean. The view from the home in the evenings was breath taking. We cant wait to book our next stay in this home.

Thanks again for sharing your home with us.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lakehouse. The newly-remodled home was beautiful and so well equipped. We had everything available to make our vacation satisfying. If we needed anything at all, John and Jeanne did everything to provide it for us. They were always available if we had questions, and our comfort during the months of February and March was their primary concern.

The lake view from the side deck was lovely during the day and spectacular at sunset. In addition, every morning, we enjoyed our walk at Carney Island Park. This park, with its lush, green walking trail, is well-maintained and interesting with its foliage and wildlife.

The neighbors nearby were friendly and generous with their time. We will not forget the kindness that they showed to us.

The nearby Villages had great nightly entertainment and unique stores in each of the town squares. We also enjoyed programs and concerts at the Savannah Center.

During the month of March, we enjoyed visits from various family members. All of them were quite impressed with the house and loved their visit there.

We would certainly recommend this peaceful lakehouse to anyone wishing to see the lake area of Central Florida.

Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We truely enjoyed our stay in the Lake House during the month of March, 2010. The house was really gorgeous and the sky lights gave the house a warm sunny light all day. It was nice sitting on the deck or in the gazebo and looking out over the lake. Very peaceful. Everything we could possibly need for a month was provided. We gladly recommend the Lake House for a home away from home. John and Jeanne were easy to communicate with, always available, and very pleasant. A very good experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Jan & Feb 2010 stay at the Lake House on Little Lake Weir. Peaceful, serene, beautiful and well maintained, this home is fully equipped and well located in Central Florida. My husband enjoyed the lake fishing and we all enjoyed the breathtaking sunsets from the deck. Carney Island Park, less than one mile from Lake House was a wonderful place to picnic, view nature at its best or just hike its trails. We highly recommend this lovely home and its attentive owners.

Dear John and Jeanne,

We certainly had a great time for the 2 months we stayed at your beautiful, new lake house. Everything about the house is lovely and comfortable and it is very well furnished. The view of the lake and the quiet, rural setting make it a perfect place to relax. And it is only a few minutes from The Villages where the restaurants and shops are excellent.

Best Wishes,

Phil and Nancy
