About Owner / Property Manager

I spent my summers in New Hampshire on a beautiful lake that the movie 'On Golden Pond' was filmed. I learned how to sail, water ski and catch a sunny fish. Some of the best memories growing up. Living in Florida I wanted the same for my children and when I arrived in Lake Placid, saw this home and took a look at the lake I found my 'On Golden Pond' Its not a busy lake and the memories my family share and all the people we taught to ski just enhances this home itself. We all gather together at certain times and bring new friends to experience our Paradise. Oak Trees and Pine Trees along with rolling hills give you a northern feel but the temperature is Southern the lake is white Sandy Bottom and clear, the fish jump and the eagles soar. Boating is the best but relaxing wins first place. Over an acre with wooded views and lake views this private paradise is our Oasis My home is the perfect place to spend time with family and friends and the memories will last your lifetime. Girls weekends are awesome, mens golf weekends rock and family vacationers have returned to my home and they have enjoy the memories made here.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Central Florida

The setting, the privacy the proximity to town and all the important stuff. The character and charm Most of all the ability to see what memories can and will be created for many years to come as its a very unique, amazing property like no other. This is as good as it gets

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close to town but yet tucked away on a quiet Cul De Sac road with neighbors that are in close proximity but not to close. Very private, a farmhouse, unique to Florida but loved by all that visit. A quiet winding road that is perfect for a morning walk. Wrap around screen enclosed porches with beautiful views from every seating area. Reverse sunsets that glow on the lake and reflect in the windows and make you feel as though you are looking at a painting.

Peaceful lake house in Florida

  • 5 of 5

This house is a beautiful country lake house in a quiet town. Fishing off the dock was fun. I brought my own kayak and enjoyed paddling out to watch the sunrise. The house is fully equipped to enjoy peaceful evenings on the porch and relaxing in the living room. Thank you Judy for a fantastic stay!

Perfectly Relaxed

  • 5 of 5

if your looking for the perfect place on the lake to stay, you've found it here. The house is amazing, the view is perfect, and the noise of everyday life is nonexistent. Sitting on the dock hearing the birds talk to each other and the dragon flies buzzing the lake surface is as peaceful as it gets. Great place for the family getaway! Looking forward to our next visit already.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I had the best time spending my mini vacation here. As soon as I sat down and looked out at the lake on the back porch I knew it was going to be a relaxing vacation. I really wish it was longer. I work full time in south west florida and I really needed the time to chill. It was the most beautiful home I have every stepped foot in. Seriously worth the stay! I would recommend to everyone! The lake is beautiful it was very quiet and placed in a cute little town.

Wonderful vacation retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! Great home, great location and great fishing! My wife and I stayed in this lovely home for a month and had the most relaxing and quiet time of our lives. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets too! Local amenities are sufficient and Sebring offers plentiful shopping and restaurants only a few minutes away.
