About Owner / Property Manager

I am a writer and in need of a tranquil, quiet place that is surrounded by the natural world. There is no place like this that I have found in my world travels.

When your heart is racing and you need to slow it down and celebrate the miracle of a sunrise, or watch the fickle skies change before your eyes, this is where all things seem possible.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Crescent City

This is truly a slice of old Florida. Formerly known as the Sportsmen's Club and an officer's club during World War II... the house has been inhabited since the 30's and has the history to match its beauty.

Crescent City is home to Florida's Oldest White Cypress Tree (over 695 yrs. old... that can be seen at The Three Bananas, next door) and many gorgeous mansions of a by-gone era. This was a Native American settlement, a steamboat stop and a pirate's hide-away. The lake is sweet water, however, is home to many species of fresh and salt water fish and animals. You never quite know what you will catch on your hook or in your net.

What makes this house unique

To do in Crescent City and close-by cities:

#1... This is the best bass fishing lake in the state of Florida. A well-kept secret.


3.Great bird watching (Binocculars are in the house)

4. Stetson Mansion (Deland) about 35 minutes South on 17... a really quaint and beautiful old FL. University town

5. Silver Glen Springs

6. Old Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House (DeLeon Springs)

7. Blue Springs State Park (Orange City) The manatees are probably in the Springs at that time of year if the weather is on the chilly side.

8.Castillo De San Marcos (St. Augustine)

There is a great Buffett-esque, beach bar type restaurant within a minute's walking/stumbling distance... called The Three Bananas. The food is tasty and the locals are not! Don't miss it.

Fabulous property... better than I imagined! You will not be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a home away from home... we hated to leave. There cannot be enough can be said about how much we enjoyed our time at the Lake House and our annual fishing trip is a hundred times better now that we will be staying here each year. We have already booked for next year. Communicating with the owner was as pleasurable as our stay. Everything you could want in a lake property can be found here.

Best place to stay in Fl

  • 5 of 5

Well decorated, well stocked in the kitchen. Beds and linens are luxury, sleep so well. Local bar and restaurant 3 bananas next door is awesome! Do not dangle your feet in the water. We saw 4 alligators. This is the second time we stayed and will be back ❤️

Owner's Response: How kind of you. And you and your family are the PERFECT guests and welcome back anytime. PS...I'm certain the alligators would be more afraid of the feet than the feet would be in danger! Please come again! Sharon

Our stay was everything we wanted it to be!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past weekend and we enjoyed every minute of our stay here. This was a great place to relax and get away for a few days. The fishing was great and we loved that there was not too much boat traffic. We took a walk to 3 Bananas next door and ate lunch one day and it was a neat place to eat. The home was very clean and we loved the coziness of it. Sharon was very kind and helped us resolve a couple of issues we had when we first arrived. The only drawback was that we never were able to get the WiFi to work but we brought a backup MiFi so it was no big deal. Great stay and we will be back!
