About Ron or Laurie Glenn

We live about 10 miles from the home and are available 24 hours a day x 7 days a week. We provide a very Clean Home Away From Home Environment and will do all we can to make your stay as comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Ron or Laurie Glenn purchased this house in 2005

Why Ron or Laurie Glenn chose Florida

We purchased this home as our vacation get away in a perfect year around climate, away from the rush and stress of business and everyday life.

This home is located in the Ocala National Forest on a small lake surrounded by nature, clear blue skies, clear star lit nights - enjoyed from the comforts of our porch.

This .60 Acre lot has the space to enjoy and entertain in our own yard with mature trees like grand oaks and surrounded by State and Federal Parks, Lakes, Rivers, and so much more ... this peaceful get away has it all!

Just 10 miles from the World famous Silver Springs Attraction with the Glass bottom Boats and Wild Water Theme Park.

A Day trip from Florida Theme Park Attractions like Disney, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, The Kennedy Space Center ...

And 1 hour from Either Florida Coast - just pack the cooler hitch the boat and go - in minutes we can be in a lake or on a major River and in 1 hour can be boating in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean.

We can Explore Natural wonders like caverns and caves Blue Grotto, Rainbow Springs, Devils Den and so much more ...

We can Canoe or Kayak the rivers of Central Florida Crystal Clear Spring fed Waters surrounded by nature and wildlife ... there is no closer place to nature then the area around this home ... it is surreal it is so beautiful ...

It does not get better.

What makes this house unique

From within this home you have views all around. At any time day or night from your back porch and front porch you can relax and enjoy nature. Blue Florida Skies and Clear Star filled skies in a Lake Front Home is just the perfect escape.

You are close to Nature and all Florida Attractions but what makes this property unique is its serene atmosphere in the heart of the Horse Capitol of the World, the Heart of Central Florida, The Ocala National Forest, just a half mile from the Black Bear Scenic Highway, local events and attractions, Fine dining, Cultural Events and endless activities within driving distance.

There is no better place to spend time and escape the Winter Weather than Central Florida.

Just cold enough some days to remind you of home but mostly year around perfect temperatures for any activity.

Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from 2/17/16 - 3/16/16. Mr. Glenn, the owner was so helpful and was available for questions at any time.

We are 3 senior couples with two small dogs and the house was perfect for us. It was very quiet and we enjoyed just sitting outside and enjoying the view. Everything was clean & we were provided with everything we needed for our stay. We were well pleased with our stay here and would recommend it for a quiet peaceful vacation.

Winter 2016

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 6 weeks at this property. We found it to be very clean and the owners welcoming and responsive without being intrusive. The neighbors are friendly as well. If you are looking for a quiet place and don't mind being out of the city, this should fit the bill. Ron and Laurie are great hosts and readily available to answer any questions or respond to your needs. Also, Lena's and the newly opened Café on the Lake are within walking distance and good little restaurants.

Peaceful, Quiet, and a great place to rest after a busy day.

  • 4 of 5

Several members of our mission team stayed at Ron and Lories rental while we were in Florida. Almost everything we needed was there. I called Ron to see if there was an iron and ironing board someplace. He went to the store and brought new ones right away, as well as a few other items I mentioned. Lorie and Ron are delightful and we

It was comfortable for everyone, except perhaps my 6' tall husband. The master bedroom ceiling was quite low.

We would certainly stay here again. Thanks, Ron and Lorie for your encouragement about our mission outreach.

Off the beaten path, but for the price, the money you save allows for more vacation spending.

  • 4 of 5

I agree with the reviewer Sandy M. this rental has everything you need, if you want to be able to unpack 1 time, and go out and enjoy your vacation doing all that central Florida has to offer and don't want to spend all your $$ on hotels, this is a great option. It is a bit of a drive to the theme parks, but again the price allows for the extra drive time. Owner is attentive and responds quickly with inquires. It is not new and shiny, but it does offer the comforts of home. If you are looking for a 3-5 star ammenity this is NOT for you, but if you just need a clean place to sleep and be able to take care of laundry, maybe save some $$ by cooking your own meals occasionally etc. while on vacation them this is an option that is worth concidering. Thank you Laurie & Ron.
