Why Dixie Fechtel chose Leesburg

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. Call for golf cart rentals: Cart World...very nice. 352 735-1800. ask for West Andrews; Don's....352 504 4392; Southern....352 391-2047.

If you are a freshwater fisherman, this is a great place to park your boat or reel in the catch every day from the dock.

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.

A surprising gem!

  • 5 of 5

Dixie is an excellent host and I am so happy to have found her property. We were in town for a celebration of life for my father-in-law. With so many family members coming to town and a very small home of her own, my mother-in-law was pleased to hear that we found a safe, comfortable, relaxing place to stay after the weekend's events. The property is located in a nice, safe neighborhood and was genuinely a surprise. When we first started our drive to the property, once we turned off the main highway, we were in an older neighborhood that had us a bit concerned. Not too worry; just one turn down Palm Harbor and you could immediately sense a quiet and safe place to rest.

We were welcomed with a plate of delicious chocolate chip cookies on the counter! The house was very clean and well maintained. The furnishings are modern and all of the beds were reported as very comfortable by family who stayed with us. The kitchen was sufficiently stocked with cooking equipment and an easy to use Keurig coffee machine. The water pressure in the showers was excellent.

Dixie had very detailed, easy to understand house rules and instructions for staying and departing. We especially liked that she had the many light switches labeled, making it easier for us to figure out.

The outside deck area and balcony off the master suite were very nice. We weren't able to use them much because it was a fairly rainy weekend.

A lovely place to stay and Dixie was very prompt in her communication and also super kind in sending us her condolences. She lives nearby and we were confident that we could reach her if we needed anything.

Beautiful property, great owners, nice location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 4 1/2 months. It is a lovely place and very peaceful. Dixie has thought of all the essentials, you basically just need your clothes and toiletries and you will be set for a nice stay. We enjoyed fishing right off the docks in the back yard and all of the grocery stores are near by. It is in a convenient location. Dixie and Vince are great owners and are available if you need them for anything. We would definitely return!

Great stay! I hate to give it five stars because then others will find it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a high school fishing tournament. Dixie was friendly, helpful and flexible. If we are back in town again, we would definitely want to stay here!

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.
