About Lewis & Joan Gilbert

We live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and love spending time at our Lake House Get-Away.

We are a fun-loving family with 3 wonderful children. Some of our favorite memories include time at the lake with Family members and Friends.

Why Lewis & Joan Gilbert chose Central Florida

Well maintained, comfortable and spacious lake front home. All that you need is provided for a wonderful, relaxing get-away. Don't miss spending time at night on the dock star-gazing. The night sky is so clear, the stars are unbelievably bright and visible! Jon Boat with paddles and life vests available for your use to "catch your dinner." Friendly small town folks make you feel at home whether dining at the best breakfast diner we've ever found or shopping at Publix. Several good restaurants are less than 10 minutes away. Great bike paths are close by and we provide the bikes!

What makes this house unique

A quiet street, great for biking and walking. A beautiful lake to enjoy every day. Relax in the screened in porch and watch the world go by including our favorite Sandhill cranes and bald eagles. Light the lakeside fire pit and enjoy an old fashioned evening making s'mores. Inside, you can also appreciate the ambiance of dining by a fire with a wonderful view of the lake from just about anywhere in the house!

Peaceful and relaxing getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, as we did the last time. It is peaceful enough to hear nothing but birds chirping and relaxing enough to feel refreshed after just a 2-night stay. We will definitely stay again and our dogs would agree!

Very comfortable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed at a house that was completely stocked with EVERYTHING you could need or want! We brought our little bass boat thinking fishing would be great, however, we had no luck. The house and property was AWESOME tho so we thourougly enjoyed our stay despite the fishing. Very relaxing and quiet!

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The view of the lake from the screened in porch is gorgeous. The water is clean and it is easy to walk in from the sandy beach and bottom to go swimming. A quiet, friendly neighborhood, too.

The house is well equipped for relaxing and cooking and the wifi works well. The screened in porch has nice furniture and a big dining table. Very comfortable.

Owners are responsive and professional and easy to deal with.

A wonderful experience. Perfect getaway for a single, couple or small family.

I hope to be a regular visitor.
