About Dixie Fechtel

We are lifetime residents of the area and love waterfront living. Both of us are graduates of the University of Florida; 16 members of our family, including two daughters are UF graduates. One of them is a senior, and the other was required to pause classes to serve our state as Miss Florida 2015. :)

Dixie Fechtel purchased this house in 2015

Why Dixie Fechtel chose Central Florida

This home is a single family residence with it's own private deck and boat slip. Enjoy all the wildlife outside your door as well as the Harris Chain of Lakes which can take you all the way to the Atlantic Ocean! If you're not a boater, just enjoy the lovely views and the location near downtown Leesburg, a town boasting more than 100 festivals and events a year... including art, chili, beer, Christmas, Mardi Gras and the famous BIKEFEST LEESBURG in April. Copy and paste: http://leesburgpartnership.com/events.html You can rent a golf cart to toodle around the scenic gardens all the way to downtown...or walk, or take one of the bicycles for a little exercise.

Also see VisitLakeFl.com for nearby activities and events--even seaplane, boat and train tours!

From this property, many residents travel by golf cart through Venetian Gardens, home to wildlife and a children's playground. If you are a freshwater fisherman, this is a great place to park your boat and reel in the catch every day. There are several fishing tournaments and even a Christmas boat parade....at night!

What makes this house unique

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, your family and friends can join you for the vacation...we will even provide some additional sleeping arrangements if desired! The price quoted is for six persons and under.

There is a sister listing. 3 bedroom/3 bath in the same area, #715227 which can accommodate more friends and family...have a reunion!

Wonderful Stay at a confortable and clean home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a place for out-of-state family to gather and stay to while attending a memorial service in town. Dixie was very responsive to email and phone inquiries. She was a pleasure to work with. She is very flexible and helpful in every way. The house is very well kept, very clean and comfortable. She offered to let us borrow her kayaks so we could go out on the lake but due to the circumstances, we didn't have time to enjoy being on the lake. The dock is right in the backyard of the house and it is very relaxing to sit outside by the water. While there are neighbors close by, the area was quiet and private.

Great House - Great Host

  • 5 of 5

It was just a weekend, but I turned 50 and my buddies and I wanted to go fishing and be guys for a weekend. I was able to keep the boat at the dock and and everything was perfect. It was a great location and Dixie was awesome! She even baked me a small cake for my birthday! That was an awesome little touch to a great weekend! I would recommend this place for anyone who was interested in exploring the Harris chain of lakes and surrounding areas. We took the boat to Mt. Dora, Eustis, and Tavares and had a blast, went fishing, and just general exploring of the lakes.

JD FAMILY

  • 5 of 5

House and boat pier were very accommodating. Well kept and maintained. Would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful exceptionally clean house without a lot of drive thru traffic since the house sits near the end of culdesac.

My family and I stayed here for several days during my daughters wedding. Mrs. Dixie was incredibly accommodating as she checked in on us, ensure we had everything we would need for our stay, brought kayaks and bikes over, etc. Aside from the exceptional service- the key west inspired home decor made it feel like a vacation.

The property is perfect for grilling out on the deck and watching boats come through. We had so much fun family time with plenty of local spots to adventure. We would recommend to anyone!
