Many believe Crooked Lake to be one of the best lakes in Florida, being one of just three lakes designated by the State of Florida as 'Special and Outstanding Waters'. Crooked Lake is nestled in the Florida ridge 'highlands', in a valley next to the highest land in the State. Crooked Lake is well known for hosting bass tournaments & Winter Speckled Perch (Crappie) fishing is great - some of the best in Florida. Pristine, clear water (rare in Florida lakes) is great for swimming or boating. Crooked Lake is a deep water 20 to 30 ft lake. Winter visitors welcome. We will consider small pets under 20 lbs with a maximum of two (2) pets, with an extra deposit required. Central Florida location, only a short drive to all theme parks, Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios, and 20 minutes from Legoland, and Florida's white sandy beaches. Babson Park is a quaint little town, near Lake Wales, with shopping, restaurants, and antiquing. Numerous golf courses located nearby.

Abby Skipper purchased this cottage in 2008
We lived in this home with our large family for 5 years, and decided to build new.
This house is the perfect lake house, with many windows, lake views from almost every room, tile floors, lots of shade, easy layout, comfortable furniture, and is just steps from the beach.
Clean. Large eating area and family room. Secluded. Being so close to lake you need to be mindful of opening and closing doors completely and quickly because of insects at night. Screened-in porch makes this easy. No bug problems in the home. Enjoyed evenings on back porch.
It was a great time....I love that place!
Wonderful quiet beach home on Crooked Lake. Loved being able to step out the back porch door onto the white sand beach and into the lake! The weather was perfect for early August, and our kids spent hours swimming and playing in the water. The house was nicely furnished; beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was large and bright, and cooking utensils, etc all provided. Very relaxing, beautiful spot on Crooked Lake. We hope to return soon!
The lake house is 5 minutes from Lake Wales, a small town with shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, antique shops, and a hospital.
