Enjoy this luxurious 6400-square-foot warm-contemporary home on spring-fed Bear Lake, one of the cleanest lakes in Central Florida. Nestled on the banks of this 310 acre ski lake, this spacious mansion has two kitchens, a basketball half-court, boat dock, and a sprawling backyard overlooking a private white-sand beach. We do not do on-site weddings. It’s perfect for a family reunion, or an Orlando vacation with a few families.
Choose as much or as little activity as you want. Head outside to enjoy the water activities. Life vests and equipment are available for paddle-boarding, canoeing, and fishing. If you don’t have your own boat, arrangements can be made for tubing, skiing or even wake-boarding if you dare. The dock has two jet ski lifts and water planes are allowed on the lake. Past guests have flown their water planes in and docked them on the beach.
When you’re ready for land sports, head back to the large fenced in backyard for running around and feeling safe. Shoot some hoops on the private half-court with a full-size Mammoth basket, or use the lawn overlooking the water to play football, kickball, corn-hole or washers.
Those who just want to relax can enjoy the hammocks, lay out on the dock, put their feet in the sand of the lakefront beach, float in the salt pool or relax in the gas-heated spa.
As dusk arrives, enjoy stunning sunset views from the Adirondack-style chairs or from the swinging bench by the fire pit as you roast marshmallows and s'mores into the night. After the sunset, enjoy indoor activities such as a game of pool on the Brunswick table, or a game of poker on the felt poker table as music plays through the whole house sound system.
There are 6 bedrooms, 2 with King beds and 3 with Queen, one with a double bed, and three large couches, plus 2 twin mattresses can be put in any room. The Guest Suite is set up with its own small living room and kitchen. The main kitchen has a breakfast table and bar stools on both sides of the kitchen so everyone can feel like part of the fun all the time.
Within a 3 mile radius from our home is Publix, Target, Costco, Walmart, 2 Starbucks, Walgreens, CVS, and numerous restaurants. The Altamonte mall and movie theaters are a 10-15 minute drive. Our home is just a short 35-45 minute drive to all the attractions like Disney, Universal and Sea World, so you can get the best of both worlds. Cocoa beach, New Smyrna beach and Daytona beach are also about 45 minutes away.
Sit out by the lake and watch for the Eagle flying overhead, the seaplanes taking off and landing right in front of you, and the professional wakeboarder practicing his flips. You will not run out of things to do and see. Stay here and make your next vacation the complete package! You won't want to leave!
