Beautiful Old Florida Lake House - Experience real Florida. Best of both worlds - great location for access to local attractions yet privately tucked away in a shaded lakeside cove.

Award winning white sand beaches and boating to islands are available within a 45 minute drive. This Florida cypress and heart wood pine home exemplifies Florida Cracker houses with modern comforts. Connect with nature in the spacious open living room adjacent to a 500 foot screened in lanai. The downstairs bedroom has it's own bathroom and large walk in shower with dual shower heads.

Hello - I'm an empty nester with a passion for being steward to this unique place I've called home for 24 years. The house was designed and built by the family in 1956. Now that the kids are grown, I'm delighted to offer this peaceful lakeside estate to travelers who wish to experience what Florida is really about.
Judi purchased this house in 1956
Best of both worlds: beautiful nature, cool shaded lakeside enjoyment convenient to Bay Area attractions and nature adventures.
Private with abundant natural beauty, conveniently located.
It was very well-kept, spacious clean, she has most everything that was need to be accommodated!!
This house was perfect for us. I had a party of 3 and we were all in individual rooms. We were there for a business conference nearby. We were greeted by a personal note welcoming us which I thought was a nice touch. The house is great! Quaint, comfortable and homey. We loved sitting by the lake in the evening with a glass of wine enjoying the beauty of the lake. Thank you so much for eveything! We had a wonderful stay and you were the most gracious hostess. Sincerely, Jeff
We loved our stay @ this convenient location in Lutz which made us feel worlds away from it all due to the beautiful design of the great room & the super-cool screened porch ! All the amenities were in place & top-notch & clean & the extras like special soaps in baths, tea bags , spices , & bottled-water in kitchen made us feel @ home instantly. We liked browsing thru the multitudes of books that were on shelves in living room ! The view of lake from large dock was lovely & relaxing . The use of kayak let us fully enjoy the water. This is a great retreat !
We booked to visit Moffitt Cancer center. The house provided much needed respite care. Quiet, peaceful with a great Florida room. Not completely handicap accessible but we managed. Boardwalk from the house to the lake would be perfect. Otherwise, great place to unwind!
I was unable to make the trip but my son and 4 of his friends made the trip and attended the national championship game. We lost the game, but my son said having such a cool place to stay took some of the sting away. Judi was so easy to deal with. Would recommend her home to anyone.
I can not thank Judi enough for such an enjoyable stay .... my daughter, her husband and my new grand daughter stayed there for an early Christmas. Judi set up a Christmas tree ... there is an in tune piano which we enjoyed playing as well as a guitar ... we had a wonderful time and I can not thank Judi enough. There was nothing missing at the house ... as if it was your own ... we will be staying there many times in the future ... Thank you Judi
