About Margie Bridges

Garrett and Laura moved to Winter Park shortly after they were married and both found employment in the Central Florida area. They were immediately taken with the charm of Winter Park, especially the historic College Quarters area surrounding Rollins College, as it is nestled among tall oak trees with views of Lake Virginia. They found their dream home, a 1925 bungalow, and over time welcomed 4 children into their family. As their family grew, so did their need for a larger home. Unwilling to say goodbye to their first home and their wonderful neighbors, Garrett and Laura decided to enter the world of vacation rentals until they can one day return to the house they love so much. Their hope is that you too will find this bungalow and this neighborhood to be a special place to stay!

Margie Bridges purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Margie Bridges chose Winter Park

Only two blocks from Park Avenue, this historic bungalow home is perfectly situated for all of your vacation needs! Stroll the Avenue and its unique boutiques, dine al fresco at one of the many delicious restaurants, relax in Central Park, take a ride on the Scenic Boat Tour, shop the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, or enjoy a night of entertainment at the local Cineplex or playhouse. Visitors to Rollins College will enjoy the convenient one block walk to campus. This home is also conveniently located to Downtown Orlando, the brand new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Amway Center, and Citrus Bowl. If theme parks are your thing, you can be to Sea World, Universal, and Disney within 30 - 45 minutes. Beach lovers will appreciate the proximity to New Smyrna and Cocoa Beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

This charming home has been renovated with all the modern conveniences but still maintains its historic charm. It is located on a quaint street that runs into beautiful Lake Virginia, part of the Winter Park Chain of Lakes. Walk down to the lake to take in a glorious sunrise! The surrounding neighborhood is perfect for long walks and runs. At dusk, let the screened in front porch call your name to enjoy a glass of wine or head out to the side patio and fire up the grill for dinner. On cold nights, light a fire in the fire pit and enjoy the stars above as you snuggle up with your special someone.

Great location...Will return!

  • 5 of 5

This "cottage" has more storage than most homes! It's laid out nicely and both bedrooms have a king bed. Margie has provided everything you could want: foil, every type of kitchen gadget, more towels than you could ever use, etc. You can walk just about anywhere from this house (The Ravenous Pig is so close)! We will definitely be back!

Lovely bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay in Winter Park. It was centrally located for our family wedding plans. The house itself was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Margie was very nice and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place and would stay again, if the need arose.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for our sons graduation from Full Sail University. We really enjoyed our stay and wanted a home close to downtown winter park. We brought our bikes and road downtown to restaurants and around the lake in the evening. This home is very comfortable, equipped and in a quiet area! We hope to be back someday! Enjoy!!

Charming and restorative!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Florida to find a few days of respite and renewal following my battle with breast cancer, and that is precisely what we found in this charming and well-appointed bungalow! From the moment we arrived, greeted by Margie's warmth and kindness, to the moment we left we felt truly at home. Winter Park is a remarkable destination if you appreciate experiencing the "real" life of Florida. You can amble along and feel like a local for a few days, but we were happy to relax at the house (coffee on the screen porch was a ritual) and just unwind. We will absolutely be back, and with lots of friends who enjoy a more "grown up" approach to Florida vacations, we will recommend this home (in fact, we already have!!) Thanks for helping us make a special time all the more special!!

Modern amenities, sweet cottage in Winter Park

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in this adorable Cottage with all the modern conveniences. It's the perfect location; an easy walk to town. Large comfortable bedrooms, two great seating areas to congregate inside and a cozy, screened front porch. The kitchen was well appointed, everything we needed was provided. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful place in a perfect location. Short walk to the shops and restaurants on Park Avenue!

  • 5 of 5

Starting with a "welcome" visit from property manager Margie, and through the entire visit, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Fully stocked house. Can cook gourmet-style "in" if you choose, or a just take a very short, pleasant, and safe walk to the dozens of places in Winter Park. Unless you are going to Disney or one of the other parks, no car is needed here! (We "Uber-ed" back to the house from the grocery store.) There were just two of us, but the place has two king beds, two full baths, and plenty of space for kids to sleep on couches or on sleeping bags. Fast internet. Clear instructions on how to use everything was extra helpful.

We will be back again for sure!
