About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

The Heart of Florida... Highlands County. Here in the center of the Sunshine State, you'll find crystal clear lakes for fishing, boating, skiing and sailing, and more than a dozen golf courses. Our gently rolling hills, orange groves and charming small towns make this a relaxing country getaway - and our central location provides easy access to Florida's best attractions without the hustle and high prices of the major tourist areas. It's the best of both worlds - within two hours of most major attractions yet removed enough for that get-away-from-it-all feeling. Come discover Highlands County for yourself!

This home is the perfect place to enjoy your vacation. This remodeled home has new roof/tile floors and has been completely painted interior and is pet friendly. Located just 10 minutes from shopping, Highlands Hammock State Park, Florida hospital and numerous golf courses, Sebring International Raceway and other local activities.

Lakeside yard is graced by very tall oak trees displaying Spanish moss hanging from it's limbs. their shade, the pool and the breeze from the lake makes the back yard fresh in the heat of the summer. In the winter my favorite thing is to sit outside around our portable out door brick chimney and enjoy the skies full of stars.

Wild life watching in this property is a real treat, you can find a variety depending on the time of the year, owls, hawks, squirrels, turtles, cranes, wonderful Florida bird species.

Freddie was great to work with, the house was all that was advertised. The sunsets were fabulous, many evenings spent on the dock with a glass of wine. The place is well stocked with everything, the neighbors are great. Only two complaints. Since we were there for 3 months, a dishwasher was missed. And the pillowtop king sized bed was way too soft for our tastes. But I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway is a quiet are of sunny Florida.

Beautiful Sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

Nice house for families, couples, and friends. Great yard with lots of space. We renter this house for five months during the winter. Located half way between Sepring and Lake Placid where shopping and restaurants are easily available. On the down side even though there's a pool it is not heated and too cold to use in the winter. The boat dock is nice for watching the gorgeous sunsets but no boat lift to secure a boat. Kitchen was well equipped but if it matters to a renter there is no dishwasher. The bunk bed room was great for grandkids!

An Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home, pretty well sums it up. As soon as we walked in the door of this lovely vacation home, we knew we had made the right decision. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips. The cottage was very well equipped. We spent many days sitting around the lovely pool looking at the lake. Watching the sunset from the covered dock was often the highlight of many days.The dog enjoyed running around the large enclosed yard. The sounds and sights of nature were too numerous to describe. We saw and heard numerous varieties of birds. We even saw a turtle making its way across the yard to the lake. Being located between Sebring and Lake Placid gave us the opportunity to explore the area and some of the quaint attractions. We would recommend this lovely abode for a family vacation.

We all loved it

  • 5 of 5

The place is absolutely beautiful. The house itself has 3 bedrooms with a king in the master bedroom, queen in the 2nd bedroom and 4 bunk beds in "Bunk Room" so it can easily fit 8 people. Some things need upgrades (like cooktop and some furniture) but overall it's great. There is plenty of space for the kids to run around especially in the front-yard. The pool is a perfect addition and was a life-savior in hot August weather. We've caught some crappies, bass and even spotted gars right from the dock. It's also a perfect place to watch incredible Florida sunsets. There were some problems but owner Mike was on top of things and all issues were quickly taken care of. Highly recommend.
