About Lewis & Joan Gilbert

We live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and love spending time at our Lake House Get-Away.

We are a fun-loving family with 3 wonderful children. Some of our favorite memories include time at the lake with Family members and Friends.

Why Lewis & Joan Gilbert chose Central Florida

Well maintained, comfortable and spacious lake front home. All that you need is provided for a wonderful, relaxing get-away. Don't miss spending time at night on the dock star-gazing. The night sky is so clear, the stars are unbelievably bright and visible! Jon Boat with paddles and life vests available for your use to "catch your dinner." Friendly small town folks make you feel at home whether dining at the best breakfast diner we've ever found or shopping at Publix. Several good restaurants are less than 10 minutes away. Great bike paths are close by and we provide the bikes!

What makes this house unique

A quiet street, great for biking and walking. A beautiful lake to enjoy every day. Relax in the screened in porch and watch the world go by including our favorite Sandhill cranes and bald eagles. Light the lakeside fire pit and enjoy an old fashioned evening making s'mores. Inside, you can also appreciate the ambiance of dining by a fire with a wonderful view of the lake from just about anywhere in the house!

Peaceful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need is there at the house. Wonderful screen porch with comfy furniture and large dining table. Perfect for watching the beauty of the lake. Plenty of bird visitors including a barred owl. The sandy beach by the dock provides easy access to the clear water of Lake Francis for a refreshing dip. So peaceful and relaxing. The owners are easy to work with and made our stay perfect.

Perfect lakefront vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We brought our 2 labs and they had a blast too! The house had everything we needed and then some. Half of the things we brought, we didn't even need. It was very relaxing and peaceful and we loved sitting out back on the patio to eat our meals. We enjoyed swimming, fishing and floating around in the many rafts that were provided. It was a perfect lake vacation. We will definitely be back!!!

We absolutely loved this place, 1000%...

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying here.. Everything that you could want for a lake house vacation. We didn't need half the stuff we brought because they had it for you. Their were plenty of toys for being on the lake, from rafts, fishing poles, life jackets, corn hole game, just about everything to make the stay awesome and inside the house, everything was provided. The next time we are looking for a lake house vacation, this is where we will stay, no doubt... Thank you for opening up your wonderful place to us.

Relaxing lake view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days here at the lake house. Very peaceful and relaxing...we did some fishing off the dock and my wife caught a big largemouth bass. We went to dinner at a few of the area restaurants and had good meals at all of them. The house had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The back porch was perfect for lounging and enjoying the lake view. The owners were great to work with and we hope to stay here again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your lake house.
