Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Lake Placid

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This single-story home sits on the beautiful 3,320 acre Lake Placid which boasts an immaculate, white sandy beach and a clear sandy bottom. There is no other lake like this in the area!

This is Margaritaville on fresh water!!

The gradual slope of the lake shore enables worry-free play time for the kids, while you enjoy one of the largest docks on Lake Placid. With approximately 60% covered and 40% exposed, everyone can enjoy as much sun as they like!

The rear of the home faces east and gives you a 180 degree view of this beautiful lake. This enables you to watch beautiful sunrises from the large screened-in porch, drinking your beverage of choice. During the hot summers, the porch facing east enables the sun to set behind you so you can enjoy the afternoon breeze on the porch (or in the hot tub) without the blazing sun in your face.

The town of Lake Placid offers many festivals throughout the year. Sebring is 15 miles away. Disney is 90 miles away.

This is the perfect home to spend a romantic getaway or time with family and friends.

About The Owner

My wife and I have owned this property for 32+ yrs. We have enjoyed seeing our 2 boys and now our 5 grand kids grow up and enjoy this great place.

The Owner purchased this house in 1982

Why The Owner chose Central Florida

The central location of Lake Placid offers the tranquility of a small town, but is an easy drive to Tampa, Orlando, and West Palm Beach. The sandy bottom lake and amazing dock give the relaxed atmosphere of a seaside location, with fresh water ease!

Peacefull getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a few days as a last summer trip. We enjoyed the tranquility and peacefullness of sitting on the dock. The lake was great for tubing and the house had everything we needed. It is on our list of places we would return to.

Summer fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from spending 9 days at the lake. We had a wonderful time. The house is roomy, comfortable and has all the amenities you could want. The lake is great for fishing and all types of water activities. The property has a nice beach for sunbathing and playing. The water is shallow at shore which is great for families with children. Also good for those who just want to wade in gradually...there are no sudden drop-offs. The dock is nice sized with a picnic table and several chairs. It's a great place to sit and relax. The boat lift is a plus. The screened in back porch was a hit with the grandparents when they came for a visit. The views of the lake are spectacular. The owners are friendly and easy to deal with. The town of Lake Placid is small and charming. There are several unique stores for shopping and restaurants to eat at. We have been spending summers in Lake Placid for the past 16 years. This was our second stay at the Bennett's property and hopefully not our last 😄

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family, along with two other families, take a family vacation to Lake Placid every year. This was our first time staying at this Lake House and I do have to say...it will be our "go to" every year. The house was very spacious and accommodated all three families. It had a spacious screened back porch with a Jacuzzi and a fabulous view of the lake! The boat dock had tons of deck space and was a great hangout. The beach was also a hit for our kids too! I can't say enough great things about it. Can't wait to come back next year!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay at this property. From the minute we walked in the door it felt like home. The kitchen was amply equipped and everything was in perfect order. We had seven adults, and plenty of room. The view, the dock, the beach.........absolutely perfect! We will definitely return soon. The owner was quick to answer any questions and very, very helpful. What a wonderful vacation at a wonderful property.

Memories Made!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this property. The sunrises were beautiful. Fishing, swimming & boating make it even better. Centrally located so your not far from either coast too. Lake Placid is a nice community. We appreciate them opening their home to guests.

The best Property ever

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 1 week on this beautiful property....our family enjoy the sunrise on the deck and also on the screened porch by the hot tub.."Great Memories to remember!!!....nothing better to enjoy the calm water of Lake placid on a beach chair and overlooking the kids played with the white sandy shore of the lake.This property has tremendous open spaces of the house to gather with the family. Extremely satisfied with the excellent service of the owners. Definitely a place to stay and enjoy a great time.
