Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Ocklawaha - The Lake Weir Getaway

Enjoy the sun on our white sandy beach and the shade under our ancient Live Oaks

It's Your Time to RELAX! 

Come enjoy the Lake Weir Getaway on sparkling Lake Weir.  The Lake Weir Getaway is nestled among the massive Live Oak trees and white sandy beaches that make Lake Weir such a special place to create great Florida memories. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Nature is alive here as bald eagles, osprey, herons, egrets, ducks and otters make their homes on Lake Weir. The lake is also well known by fishermen for its plentiful large mouth bass, blue gill and crappie. You're also welcome to bring your boat and use our dock while you're here. There's plenty of room to park your trailer. Wake boarding, water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing are just a few of the fun water sports you can enjoy on the lake. Our kids love jumping off the dock and playing in the sandy shallows. We've loaded our white sandy beach with custom built Adirondack chairs for you to move around to find that perfect spot to wiggle your toes in the sand or snuggle in close to a beach bonfire to roast

marshmallows under the stars. You'll be about 15 minutes from Publix Supermarket, WalMart, Sams Club and every other national retailer you could think of, so don't sweat it if you forget something. And there's WiFi here to help you stay connected.  Disney, Universal and the other Orlando attractions are about an hour and a half drive from your North Shore Getaway. The Ocala National Forest boundary is 10 minutes away. The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf coast are each about an hour and a half drive and offer tons of things to see and places to visit. Explore historic St. Augustine. Swim with the manatees at Crystal River. Kayak and snorkel down crystal clear Rainbow River. Mountain bike on the Santos Trail. Fish for world class tarpon, redfish and trout. Or get unplugged and just relax!  This is a duplex and we live next door, so if you're looking for a party house or place for a large family reunion, North Shore Getaway probably isn't for you. A maximum of 7 guests are allowed on the property and there's enough room to park three vehicles. NO PETS allowed, however, there are kennels and pet care facilities available in the area.  This is a great lake house for rent in Central Florida.

About Bartow McDonald

We have lived on Lake Weir for 11 years and love it! We're an outdoor kinda family and have been so blessed to experience the wonder of this beautiful part of the world. We can load you up with ideas for adventure and getting the most out of your time here at the North Shore Getaway.

Bartow McDonald purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bartow McDonald chose Lake Weir

Nestled on the North Shore under the massive and ancient live oaks, you'll enjoy the magnificent serenity and beautiful waterfront that make Lake Weir so wonderful. From our naturally white sandy beach, you can watch the eagles and ospreys fly against the dramatic sunrises and sunsets. The lake's surface sparkles brilliantly during the day against an ever changing hue of blues and a full moon at night is simply magical. This is a great place to create happy memories.

What makes this condo unique

Yes, the sand really is naturally this white and many of these massive oak trees that surround you are hundreds of years old. Bring your boat or rent one on the lake. Disney is a day trip and you're 15 minutes from Publix and The Villages. The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico are an hour and a half drive.

Our family was pleased with the house and we enjoyed the quiet beauty of the lakefront. The kayaks were fun and sitting on the beach watching the sunrise was a special memory.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Lake Weir. We often vacation on this lake but really enjoyed staying on this property this year. The house was well furnished, clean, and well stocked. The white sandy beach and a place to tie up are jet ski made it ideal for us. The owners were very nice and most helpful. The location is ideal and there are many springs, shopping sites, and other activities nearby. I would recommend this rental opportunity and hope to go back next year for another week.

We stayed for just over a week overlapping Memorial Day. Was a very relaxing stay. I would recommend this location to family and friends.

The McDonalds were very good hosts, and we had everything we needed right there.

We had an excellent experience at this house. The owner s live next door, however it doesn't feel too invasive. They were very helpful and very friendly. Our children especially enjoyed the rope swing, playing on the beach, and hanging out on the screened in porch.

All the appliances worked great, the kitchen was well stocked and the atmosphere is very homey. Our only complaint, we wanted to stay longer!

Notes:
Your Kinda Place? If lots of alcohol and loud music are what make a great vacation for you, well, this isn't your kinda place. If you're looking to have a large house party or reunion with lots of folks, this isn't your kinda place either. Our maximum allowance of guest is 7 people total. We're happy to recommend lots of other options if that's what you're looking for, but our North Shore Getaway is really geared to an entirely different vibe. Families cooking s'mores on the beach bon fire, kids jumping off the dock, mom snug in an Adirondack beach chair wiggling her toes in the white sand, sipping coffee on the dock watching the sunrise. That's the beat of our North Shore Getaway. Come join us!
