BEST place on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We just spent six days at Sabine and Rolph's place, mid-October 2016. The place is amazing, and it is only outdone by Sabine and Rolph's friendly and welcoming nature. Sabine has thought of everything for the guests. She is very talented in decorating not only the apartment but also the entire premises. Note this is almost 9 acres, not one of the little . 3 acres places on the Lake. We beached our sizeable pontoon boat on the beach and took it out numerous times in our 6 days. The apartment--it's upstairs--is very private and quite large. The apartment gives a vantage point to be able to see almost the entire property from the sizeable balcony. There are a lot of animals and fowl on the property. None were noisy enough to keep us from sleeping in when we wanted, or we would get up in time to see the ducks race down to the pond from their pen. The premises are located on a main road on the south side of the Lake, but it is a quiet and not very heavily traveled road. It is just a quick ride by auto or by boat down to Eaton's Beach--which we hit several times while staying at the farm. This is our 6th VRBO on Lake Weir. The best, hands down. fdb

Hospitality! Scenery! Relaxing getaway! A treat!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to take in the scenery and catch up on rest and relaxation. Rolph and Sabine have carved out a neat retreat right on the lake. Our families hit it off well right from the start because of their welcoming nature. We brought our kayaks and launched right off the private beach. There always seemed to be something interesting going on on the farm. They are up early (but that doesn't you have to be) feeding the ducks, letting out the horses, collecting the eggs, etc. Speaking of eggs, we got to try our first scrambled duck eggs there (delicious!). The Villages (huge retirement subdiv.) and the shops are about 20 minutes away, there is a "local" restaurant right on the lake (i think it was on around the lake though). We didn't go out much because it was so easy to cook there. One neat thing we did was drive to the gulf coast and swam with the manatees (very gentle creatures but the water was really cold in March even in wetsuits). Overall, we highly recommend this place. Give it a try, your family will thank you.
