Escape to the Lake
We had a wonderful time at the Lake House Blue. The kids enjoyed fishing and kayaking, while mom and grandma enjoyed relaxing and enjoying the view. The home is well maintained and cared for, every thing needed was right there for us. Look forward to a future trip back!
Thank you for a Great review. Every time we see parents bringing their children fishing it makes everything we do worth while. Who better to expose kids to fishing. Fishing has a lot of things going for it like fun, skill, food, bonding, and sharing experiences that can last a life time. We are so pleased to play a small part in it all...
This Lake House Blue is the best Vacation that I have taken in a long time for total R & R. We were happy to get away to escape reality for awhile. Especially with this pandemic going on. My husband and his brother enjoyed fishing the whole time. My Sister in law and myself got to read and relax. This house has everything. My daughter who is autistic and usually wants to go home after two days, kept herself busy and enjoyed watching the lake. Plenty of rooms to just view the lake. I loved it!!!! We are already thinking when we can book it again. Don't hesitate this place is worth it....
Thank you for a great review. Boy, this is a hard review to comment on because of the wonderful praise. It is so satisfying to have guest appreciate all the effort we have put into this vacation home. We have tried to create a place where you really can get some well deserved rest. In this modern fast paced society it is hard to find a place that puts a emphasis on rest and relaxation. That has always been our goal and we are so pleased when our guest notice and appreciate our efforts....
Oasis on the lake
My husband and I stayed with our children, 19 &10 and in-laws. All ages enjoyed this rental home! Lots of amenities such as crab trap, fishing pole, kayaks, and grill. The house has everything you need inside. It is clean and well maintained. There are lots of bugs at night, be sure to bring bug spray/ thermocell so you can enjoy the evenings on the porch. The mullet jump constantly!
The fish didn't bite near the house. A lot of boats cruising by and alligator sightings. As a Mom, it's not much of a swimming area by the house. The kayaks were very sturdy, enough so that my mother in law ventured out with our daughter! Life vests included!
Perfect for people looking to unwind and take it easy!
Thank you for a great review. We are glad you had a nice stay. We are not in a position to recommend swimming in the lake because of the Gators, although the locals swim and water ski in the lake all year long. We have have a clear lake with-in a mile that we recommend for swimming with a sandy beach at Lake Stella. Dark water lakes make for the best fishing in Florida and we are glad Lake Crescent is one of those...
Great loved it and the views from the house
Will do it again next year
Thank you for a great review...Those are the words we most like to hear...
Lake House Blue
Our second time visiting and it was just as relaxing as our first visit. Only downside, the fish were on vacation as well. The house was very clean, well stocked. Already planning our third visit.
Thank you for a great review. We love repeat guest because they already know what to expect and can get right into relaxation as soon as they get here. That is what Lake House Blue is all about and that was our plan from the beginning....
The area serves as a hub for day trips to nearby shopping, recreation and tourism. Located within an hour's drive are Ravine State Gardens in Palatka; Deland, with Blue Springs and DeLeon Springs (the real Fountain of Youth); the Ocala National Forrest with Juniper, Salt and World Famous Silver Springs; Daytona with its shopping, Daytona International Speedway & Museum and famous beaches; Flagler County, Marineland; and the historic city of St. Augustine. Within two hour's drive are Jacksonville, Orlando, Walt Disney World Resort, Universal and MGM, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center, and Mount Dora for the antique lovers. All this from the Bass Capital of Florida.
Other Activities: Swimming 1 mile away at Lake Stella with picnic area and restrooms
Golf: The Live Oak golf course is a local venue, and fancy it's not. But the locals like the idea of having their own private setting. There is also a municipal course in Palatka that is only about 30 miles away. Now, if you are a serious golfer there is St. Augustine, Daytona and Orlando that can fill any dream you might have.
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....
