Relaxing home right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had this home for 5 nights and it was such a pleasant stay! What impressed me the most was the first time I walked out the covered dining/porch area to see the view of the lake and walked out onto the private dock. It has bench seating at the end of the long dock and to sit out there at sunset was the most relaxing part of my day! It was so peaceful.

Shawn was so great to communicate with and we had no problems at all! The house was very clean, plenty of room and was the perfect house to fit our needs. Could not have been more pleased with our stay!

Relaxing from the moment you step foot on the property...

  • 5 of 5

While we chose this vacation home based on the positive reviews and beautiful pictures, neither of those actually did this home justice. From the moment we stepped through the door, we knew that we wouldn't want to leave. From the floors to the walls to the furniture, the whole house is constructed with the utmost craftsmanship and attention to detail. The largest bedroom has beautiful views of the lake, and thoughtfully, the owners put a covering on the windows, so you can see out but others cannot see in, meaning you literally wake up to beautiful views of the lake. The screened in porch is the perfect retreat from the hot sun, while you still feel as though you are outside. While the home is convenient to area stores and restaurants, you still feel away from it all when you arrive back at The Lake House. The dock is very spacious - many people can comfortably fish at once, and all of us caught record size bass! It's also a romantic space to enjoy the lovely sunsets over the lake. Don't miss it! During this visit I was recuperating from an injury (making the interior views all the more cherished), but next time we visit, we definitely plan to bring our kayaks and paddleboards - maybe even the fishing boat - with space for all of those boats on the dock. All the neighbors are friendly, and overall, it was a relaxing atmosphere and tremendous getaway. Thank you to Shawn, the owner, for sharing his beautiful home. He certainly aims to please!

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend. The three boys ages 4-14 continue to say what a wonderful time they had. The home has a huge living room area with an abolute gorgeous view. The bedrooms are perfect for their purpose - sleeping. The kitchen is well equipped and the barbeque a plus. We cooked all meals outdoors. The dock is the perfect place for sunbathing, eating, enojoying the others on the lake and fishing. We spent most of our time right there on the dock. Lots of jetski, tubing and boating going on in the lake. We brought our own kayaks and we all got to enjoy the lake. Neighbors are friendly enough. The only issue we did have was the cleanliness of the property and I can tell you that from speaking with the owner Shawn, he was not aware of the problem at his vacation home and I am sure it has since been addressed. Shawn was a gentlemen throughout the whole booking, staying and departing process. Thank you Shawn for allowing us to stay in your home. We really look foward to creating many more fond memories with our children at your lake home.

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

My family decided to have a "change of scenery" from our typical Orlando summer vacation this year. With 2 boys, the swap to Lake Placid was perfect for us! The property is just right for a family with a large living room, screened porch, grilling area, and dock/boat lift. The boat ramp is close by and the house has everything you need for an enjoyable Old Florida style vacation. My children say it was "the best vacation ever!".......who needs busy theme parks when you can relax at Lake Placid?!?!
