Incredible and unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved the house. It was fully stocked with everything and anything you can imagine necessary. The view of the lake is amazing. Spaced out and excellent for large groups with ample seating areas. Anne is excellent and thoughtful and available if you have any questions. Best rental I have ever stayed at.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My parents have a winter home in the Villages. This beautiful home was perfect for my family of 7 and my 3 brothers to stay in while celebrating a special birthday for Mom. If you love beautiful sunsets on a large deck built around large Oaks that provide natural shade allowing you to relax and connect with family, then this is perfect. Anne and her son, Michael were fabulous to work with and we will return! Kids had a blast on a cute little paddle boat all day long. So nice to see authentic make believe play instead of the electronics these days.

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a girls weekend or just some R & R. The view from the back porch at sunset is breathtaking. The house is modern, very spacious, and impeccably kept. Anne, the owner, is great to work with and very accommodating. I cannot say enough about this beautiful property. I would give it 10 stars if I could..

Wonderful lake house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this beautiful property. Anne and Charlie are great hosts! The lake is crystal clear and the front yard has awesome trees. One even has a tire swing. The beach is where we spent most of our day. We also enjoyed the 2 restaurants on the lake. We will be back for sure!

Perfect for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

we went to spend a week (Thanksgiving) to East Lake weir and stayed at this very comfortable and huge house. Although it rained for two days, we managed to have lots of fun. I highly recommend Eaton's restaurant: service and food really amazing. A wonderful place to be away from it all and yet close by "The Villages" .
