We'll Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second wonderful stay at "The Lake House" in as many years. Centrally located (1.5 hours or less from "everything" - Disney/Universal/Orlando, Space Center/Indian River/East Coast, Tampa/St Petersburg/West Coast) for those touring central Florida. Nice quiet neighborhood, boat launch just down the lane and the Crooked Lake Prairie Natural Area within walking distance (for a cool morning jog or afternoon hike). Very comfortable and well appointed vacation home with incomparable views to the north across a broad reach of Crooked lake. Enjoyed spending quiet mornings with a good book and a cup of coffee on the large covered deck interrupted only by the resident birds (Bald Eagle, Osprey, Sandhill Cranes, Cardinals, Blue Jays . . .). Evening barbecue on the same deck while enjoying the play of sunlight until dusk sets in with twinkling lights showing from homes across the water. Life as it was meant to be enjoyed! Thanks for all you've done to make this a favorite of our's and our kids (14 and 8).

Great house

Great house, clean and very well kept. Had everything we needed. Would highly recommend. We loved sitting on the back deck overlooking the lake having coffee and surfing the web!

What a beatiful, clean getaway. Just the right distance away from town, to enjoy the lake. Very quiet area, can't wait to get back.

Delightfully private, rural, and quiet

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed a week here in early January. The house is on a large lot with shrubbery separating yard from neighbors in back which is on lake front. We like quiet and non-touristy places. This met the bill. We saw bald eagles, osprey, sandhill cranes, yard birds every day. A preserve with walking trails was a quarter mile away. Local roads had little traffic, and so biking was safe. Within 40 minute drive, you can access Lake Kissimmee St. Park with kayak rentals and lots of trails. Lake Wales is 20 minutes away with Bok Tower and restaurants. It was 1.5 hr drive to Disney World. This is Old Florida, where the groves are located.

The house is nicely furnished, especially the kitchen which is spacious and well outfitted. Beds were comfortable. The only small caveat I offer is that the third bedroom is across the house from the bathroom. That was not a consideration for us since it was just the two of us plus two small well-behaved dogs.

The owner/managers are easy to work with and want to make their guests comfortable.

We would definitely go back.
