If privacy and a waterfront environment teeming with wildlife

appeals to you, then you have come to the right place.

Lake George Hideaway is a clean, modern, nicely decorated, fairly

large, canal front home located west of Pierson Florida near the

southeastern corner of Lake George.

Although Daytona with it's speedway, beaches, and nightlife is only

40 minutes away, and Disney World and all that goes with it are

within a 2-hour drive, the main attractions to this place are the

privacy, the quiet waterfront setting with abundant wildlife, and

the great boating/fishing made available via the canal connecting to

Lake George and the St. Johns River.

This is not the noisy, packed to capacity, tourist filled,

artificial, "Theme Park" Florida.

This is the real thing.....

Picture the early morning entertainment while eating your breakfast

at the rustic oak table on the screened-in back porch:

You are centered on the lot's 300 feet of waterfront. Because the

canal was dug almost 40 years ago with little development in the

area, the look and feel is not so much that of an artificial canal,

but more like a natural creek.

There are no other houses visible, only the Palm, Oak, and Cedar

trees, the dock, boathouse, and fish cleaning station.

Birds singing, frogs grunting, fish splashing. The sounds of nature

surround you and are only interrupted by the occasional weekend

airboater cruising the nearby lake.

Squirrels are creating a ruckus in the dry palm fronds as they jump

from one palm tree to another on the other side of the canal.

The Cardinals are feeding at the birdfeeder, there is a Blue Heron

hunting for breakfast out on the dock, and there are Ospreys

circling overhead waiting for an unlucky Bream, Speckled Perch, or

Largemouth Bass to come near the surface. You might see one of the

Great Horned Owls hanging out in the trees or consider yourself

fortunate if you catch a glimpse of a Bald Eagle gliding over at

tree top level.

A half dozen or more turtles are sunning themselves on the opposite

bank, and If you are lucky, you might get to see an Otter playing in

the water.

'Possum, Raccoons, Armadillos, Deer, Wild Turkeys, Manatees etc.,

etc..

Pretty much any animal Florida's got to offer has been spotted

around here at one time or another.

We never seem to tire of the going's on in the backyard, and we bet

you won't either.

NEW ADDITIONS!

We have added a 5 person hot tub, and you've got to see the garage

that has been converted to a game room with blacklights, pool table,

jukebox, pinball machine, antique Shuffle Bowler and more! Check out more pictures at

the Lake George Hideaway website.

Bring your boat!

The dock and covered boat slip are located right in the back yard,

only a short distance away from the screened-in porch. A short ride

down the canal brings you out to the large, beautiful Lake George.

Lake George and the connecting St. Johns river offer many fishing and

cruising opportunities, and the nearby Silver Glen Springs and Salt

Springs with their crystal clear waters are a great place to go swim

or just hang out.

Don't get the idea you've got to own a boat to enjoy Lake George

Hideaway though. Most find that they don't even need to leave the

yard to enjoy the natural Florida beauty, great fishing, and

wildlife.

NOTE: To be clear, unlike some of the rentals in the Astor area,

this is a conventionally constructed house, not a mobile home. It is

located in a nice, clean, residential neighborhood made up entirely

of houses (no mobile homes or campers), and although there are only

2 bedrooms and 1 bath available for use, this is a large roomy house

with approximately 2500 sq ft to wander around in. Also, because the house is primarily a private weekend home for our own use, you will find it to be furnished, decorated, and maintained better than your average vacation rental.

Although we are not trying to discourage bringing children, and older

kids really enjoy the game room, please be aware that the house is

definitely NOT child proof. There are many extremely fragile and

easily broken hand made artworks throughout the house, and many items

that a toddler could easily hurt themselves with. Frankly, it's

probably not the ultimate place for young children.

Pets may be allowed under certain circumstances, and an extra charge

may apply. Contact for more info.

At this time we are not offering weekend rentals. A one week minimum rental will be required.

PLEASE NOTE: Lake George Hideaway is a NO SMOKING environment. Smoking is absolutely prohibited in the house, game room, back screened porch, or hot tub area.
