About Erika Treadwell (Property Manager)

Family home...well cared for and used by family. Quiet street.

Erika Treadwell (Property Manager) purchased this house in 2011

Why Erika Treadwell (Property Manager) chose Lake Placid

Family owned property that is well maintained with easy access to major highway US 27. Close to Archbold Biological station, Seminole Brighton reservation casino, beautiful lakes, and close to all major attractions in Central Florida, without the expense. Two hours or less in any direction for short day trips for major cities (Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami).

What makes this house unique

Perfect get-a-way for the adventurer. Rustic setting near fishing, close to a casino, away from it all but close to major highway, shopping, and sight-seeing. If you love nature, Archbold Biological Station is a short drive away. Henscratch Farm Winery is a few miles away.

Great Winter Get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent January/February here. It was everything we expected. Very comfortable furnishings and everything you need is furnished from linens to pots and pans. Downtown Lake Placid is 1 mile from the house and there is every convenience you could want in town. There are numerous fishing lakes in the area and ample room on the property to part your boat/trailer. Both Erika, the property manager and the owners are just a call away and very attentive to any needs that come up. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Bad appearing neighborhood.

  • 3 of 5

To put this in perspective I’m from MN and travel often using VRBO. I should have known by the low cost something was up but thought it was just because of where it was located in FL. However I did not feel safe staying here alone. House was as pictured but pretty worn furniture, broken knobs on closets, notes to not use wash clothes to wipe off makeup and no shower supplies, ice maker didn’t work and home is in a very runned down area. Neighboring houses have boards on window,etc

The roaster-yeah needs to go.

Owner's Response: We also stress to each guest to read the reviews before they apply. We advise all inquirers that the location of the home is in a low-income community. It is reasonably priced for its size and the amenities. This guest's concerns were more about the neighborhood than the home itself. There is also a security system for peace of mind and an enclosed garage with remote. Currently, there are homes boarded up due to the devastation from Hurricane Irma. The home itself is very clean and very well maintained for its age. Our listing does not offer shower supplies as we don't know individual tastes or allergies. The ice-maker will be repaired. We are sorry this particular guest did not enjoy her stay.

I would come back

  • 4 of 5

The home is very well kept, nicely furnished. Everything worked, 3 beautiful bedrooms. Unfortunately, I could only stay 2 nights, by myself unfortunately. My friends cancelled on me. Their loss!! I left an item behind and they were kind enough to make sure I got it back!!! Very important to me....

Very clean! Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The 'get-a-way' was perfect for us (two adults and four small children). You can tell the place is well-taken care of. The property manager was great and even showed up (with a good attitude) when we accidentally triggered the alarm system. The location was great for us, it is only a few houses down from HWY 27 so you can get where you need to very quickly. All in all, the place was perfect. If you are a looking for a safe, economical stay while in Lake Placid look no further. We plan on staying again!

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate this wonderful review about our get-a-way. It is our family home and we use it as often as possible. We have a wonderful property manager who works to make sure our home is clean and she is always available for our guests. These were great guests as well. They took excellent care of the property. We hope they will consider leasing our home again for a future trip to Lake Placid. The home is priced right and has easy access and great amenities for the price.
