Recreational triathlete heading to Kona for the World Championships in 2018! Like to think my properties represent my healthy lifestyle...vegetable gardens, relaxing environment where you can get a good nights sleep & good access to places where one can swim, bike and run:-))
Michelle Bolhuis purchased this house in 2010
Most lakefront properties have a road separating the beach from the house. This lake house is situated right on the water!
Being situated this close to a major chain of
lakes is both very revitalizing and tranquil at the same time.
“We were two families from up east and wanted to spend a warm winter in Orlando. This place was excellent and as described. Kids had wonderful time in the house. We spent a week which was never enough with kids. Lake view was wonderful and we were happy to spot couple of gators far enough! Sun room was quite warming, bed and bathrooms were great too. Hope to see you next time!”
The home is beautiful, quiet safe area and so much wildlife. We watched birds, fish & even a turtle in the shallows of the lake. Michelle & Jeff made us feel very welcome they even provided us with a brand New Seadoo jet ski to use which absolutely made the holiday for us, we were then able to get out on the lake which was fantastic!! I would have no hesitation in recommending this home to couples or family's...it is so much better than the 'run of the mill' villas around Disney!
Excellent! Book early as 90% occupancy!
Stayed in cabin at nearby Lake Louisa State Park and saw the residence - tri bike stored there temporarily. Owners were extremely supportive and friendly.
Swim bike and run needs nicely accomodated in the area.
Had a very relaxing stay in Clermont during Thanksgiving. Property was welcoming, there was fresh eggs and creamer in the fridge and coffee for the Keurig. Place was very clean but the furniture was a little dated. The back porch was right on the water which was very nice. Internet was high speed and lots of channel selections on the TVs. Overall very pleased and plan on going back.
Great property, Michelle communicates immediately. Relaxing, quiet and some of the best sunsets you will ever see. Top of the line appliances, would like to see a more comfortable couch in the TV room, very small especially if tall!! Comfy beds!!!
My husband and I recently rented this beautiful property last month and I don't even know where to begin reviewing it....
First of all Michelle (and Jeff!) is an absolute dream to work with- from inquiries to booking to silly little questions every call and email were promptly returned. These wonderful people bend over backwards to ensure you have a wonderful stay in their home.The location is perfect- close to amenities, restaurants, NTC, yoga studios, etc. I was able to ride my bike most places! And I've never stayed in a property that was so well equipped- gorgeous cookware, plenty of dishes/ utensils/cutlery/good knives, etc. Appliances were great (I had no problems with the oven). Comfortable beds, nice linens, an abundance of towels. From dinners on the upstairs screened in lanai to sitting on the deck every evening watching the sunset over the lake everything about this home is incredible...we were very sad to leave but will definitely be back next year for an even longer stay. I would highly recommend this beautiful property!!
What a fabulous property to vacation to. Beautiful house; fresh and clean. The view from the deck is breath-taking; a great place to watch sunsets from.
The property is centrally located to the major attractions, and only a day trip from Kennedy Space Centre.
We will definitely be back.
Clermont Chain of Lakes, Florida: Sun Setting Over Lake Palatlakaha

Water paradise awaits in East Central Florida: the Clermont Chain of Lakes offers over 9000 acres of water surface with additional miles of canals and rivers. Eleven of the 13 lakes in the chain are connected with channels and with stretches of the Palatlakaha River that remain navigable to small boats. The other two lakes are connected to each other, but separated from through-boat traffic by a water control structure on the Palatlakaha River. Located a few miles southwest of Orlando, the Clermont Chain of Lakes is one of central Florida's hottest housing markets in the area and a popular destination for water sports lovers year round.
The larger lakes are popular for waterskiing and are densely populated with water lovers. The largest of the lakes are Lake Minneola (1,888 acres), Lake Minnehaha (2,298 acres), Lake Louisa (3,634 acres) and Cherry Lake (401 acres). All four are on the main portion of the chain along the river and easily accessed by water. Lake Winona (64 acres), Lake Palatlakaha (102 acres), Lake Hiawatha (49 acres), Wilson Lake (32 acres), Lake Susan (81 acres), Lake Crescent (122 acres) and Cook Lake (21 acres) are all peripherally-connected lakes either by river or manmade canal. Located near the town of Groveland, Lake Lucy (346 acres) and Lake Emma (173 acres) are often considered as part of the chain due to their location on the Palatlakaha River. The highest elevation among the lakes is a normal 97 feet at Lake Susan.

Palatlakaha Run, the longest water trail in the Lake County Blueways system, offers over 26 miles of paddling enjoyment along the chain. The deepest spots in the entire chain are about 26 feet with the majority considerably shallower. The unpopulated areas of the shorelines are wetlands harboring a wide variety of native wildlife. Attractive moss-draped cypress trees line the canals and shelter many of the shorelines-the perfect backdrop for a scenic kayak trip. The Clermont Chain of Lakes is one of the most pristine in central Florida, but water color varies according to water source. Some lakes are primarily spring-fed and clear, while others gain their water from nearby Green Swamp and offer water tinted by tannin. The brown color does not indicate poor water quality however, and these darker lakes are often preferred for swimming as the lack of light penetration keeps the water temperatures cooler than in clearer lakes.
Two marinas are located on the lakes, one at Lake Minnehaha and the other at Lake Susan. The marina at Lake Minnehaha offers some boat rentals and rental slips for local boaters, and Lake Susan sells boat gas. Several public boat ramps are located on the chain; some allow launching for a small fee, and many commercial facilities offer boat launching from their docks. The main boating lane north from Lake Louisa has directional signage for the convenience of boaters. A swimming beach is offered on the south side of Lake Louisa at Lake Louisa State Park. The lakes are well-known for being excellent fishing lakes, with smallmouth bass, redear sunfish, largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and channel catfish most often caught. Most of the lakes have fallen trees and dredge holes acting as fish attractants; these are marked by buoys. Several fishing piers offer shore fishing and access to the disabled. A Florida fishing license is required.
The City of Clermont is widely known as the 'wakeboarding capital of the world,' with a year-round camp dedicated solely to teaching the skill of wakeboarding. Clermont has a boat ramp and public beach at Waterfront Park on Lake Minneola and offers rentals of bicycles and kayaks to access both the chain of lakes and the many trails in the area. The South Lake Trail, popular with walkers and rollerblade fans, is a 'Rails to Trails" path that connects to the West Orange Trail. Half- and full-day paddling tours can be arranged here from the rental facility. The Great Clermont Triathlon is held here each year, taking advantage of the water and trails in the area. The towns of Clermont, Montverde, Minneola and Groveland offer several forms of lodgings to suit the visiting Lakelubber. Chain hotels join small resorts, campgrounds and RV parks to house visitors, while a few weekly private rentals can also be found. Real estate is mostly upscale, with new gated communities being developed every year. Many small unusual shops and artisan galleries offer the best of eclectic shopping, while cafes and restaurants cater to every taste.
Lake Louisa State Park holds about 60 full-service campsites and two primitive camping areas suitable for tent campers. Several equestrian camping sites offer convenient access for horse owners who enjoy the horseback trails in the area.
