About William & Kate Sosnowski
Florida residents and retired military, happy to share this great family vacation home with your family.
William & Kate Sosnowski purchased this House in 1953
Why William & Kate Sosnowski chose Lake Placid
My grandfather built this home on two full lake front lots when he returned from WWII, and what started out as a fishing cabin was expanded and became their primary residence. Our family has used it as a getaway and family gathering ever since.
What makes this House unique
The house is charming and the property and views are beautiful. There is a giant live oak that shades most of the backyard and provides a relaxing spot for a cook out or afternoon nap. The lake front and 150' dock will give you unlimited activities from swimming to fishing to water sports. Lake Francis is unique in central Florida as it is a sand bottom spring filled lake that is well stocked with trophy bass and provides excellent angler challenges and has become a stop on the bass tournaments during the Spring and Summer.

Great place, great vacation
Everything was perfect!

This cottage is very charming, located in a nice neighborhood, and enjoys a splendid view of lake. It has a spacious and very comfortable living room, dining room, and what is called a Florida Room, a room with lots of windows looking out on the lake and pier, which are only steps from the back of the house. Also, the cottage is amazingly well stocked and provisioned with everything any renter could possibly want. Without exception, whenever we looked for anything, we found many of whatever we were looking for. We thoroughly enjoyed our one-week stay, and would readily return.
Thank you for taking time to leave such a kind review. We are so glad you found everything you needed and enjoyed you stay at the Lake.
We rented this house for 1 week in February 2015, there were 5 adults and we had plenty of sleeping room. We found the location to be great, quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. We brought our own bass boat and the men fished the local area each day while the women went sightseeing and shopping. I would rent this again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our house and thank you for taking time to leave a review. We hope to see you again next winter!
The lake home
We rented this Lake home for 2 weeks in the end of Feb. 2013. I can say that the pictures do not do it justice. The is house is roomy and cute. It has a great view of the lake.
We wanted a place that was centerally located, that we could take off on our motorcycle and go to either of the coast lines. It proved to be a great launching point. Even though we weren't interested in going to Orlando, it is only about a hour and a half drive.
If you have a interest in fishing it is a good Bass lake. We caught sunnies and crappies off the dock. The boat landing is less then a block from the house.
The owners were very easy to work with and so nice. The nieghbors are very friendly.
I would recommend this house.
Thank you for the kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come again.
Swimming, boating, water sports and fishing right out your door on Lake Francis, a clear, freshwater, sand bottom 539-acre lake.
The house is 5 minutes to grocery stores and the quaint town of Lake Placid with unique shops and boutiques that offer gifts, arts, crafts, clothing and antiques. It’s just 15 minutes to Sebring with shopping, restaurants and Sebring International Raceway. Lots of golf and tennis nearby too!
It is just 85 miles to Orlando and Disney World, 2 hours to the Tampa area, 2 hours to the Gulf Coast beaches or the Atlantic Coast and 3 hours to Miami. You will be in the middle of it all!
