Additional Location Information
Clean and comfortable accommodations and the perfect place for relaxation and fun in the heart of Florida.
THREE REASONS TO STAY...
The "Lakehouse" is located in North/Central Florida on Lake Grandin. Our area was inhabited by Timucua Indian tribes and arrowheads and other artifacts have been found near the lake. The lake is perfect for water sports and fishing, so bring your boat. The area is a nature lovers paradise with great bird watching, walks under the oak trees or just a peaceful nap under the hammocks or sitting on the dock.
We offer a country setting in the heart of Florida that is perfect for those looking for a true Florida getaway. Summer fun with the kids or a true quiet retreat, you pick the season.
PET FRIENDLY....for those with behaved pets.
St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach and Gainesville are all within an hours drive. Orlando and Tampa with all of their attractions are within 2 hours while traveling quiet country roads. Plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, Walmart, etc. are within 30 minutes.
*Perfect for business travelers and traveling nurses working at Shands Hospital in Gainesville
*Perfect for University of Florida Families coming for scouting, open house, sports events or ceremonies.
*Convenient to most Florida attractions.
*Great for family reunions and summer fun with the kids.
*A perfect and economical get away for you northern snow birds coming down. Great package rates for extended stays.
The weather starts warming up perfectly in March when many of the flowers start coming into bloom. Our large Azalea bushes are by far the best on the lake.
After this, the water warms up nicely and the water sports begin. Throughout the summer you will see many families enjoying the lake with lots of cookouts going on. Our Summer sky is amazing with no nearby city lights. You can lay on the dock in the evening and almost feel as if you can touch the stars in the (website hidden)rfect if you have that telescope you have been wanting to try out.
Fall (starting in early October) is when the kids have gone back to school and there is a quite peacefulness on the lake. The eagles are active and there are many bird species that stop over on their way further south for the winter. Once we get into December, the sunsets can be dramatic and the Crappie and Catfish start biting well. If you really like fishing, we are only 20 minutes to Rodman Dam which is one of the premier freshwater fishing spots in the Southeast. And, don't forget, the nearby St. John's River and the many saltwater fishing locations on either coast. So, bring a boat if you have one. I have lived in the area my entire life and can help you get on the fish.
The "Lake House" offers:
There are 3 bedrooms with a king size bed, queen size bed and a bunk bed which has a very comfortable full size futon on the bottom. One of my favorite features is the large enclosed back porch which is 10 x 40 and overlooks the entire lake through full windows that stretch across the back. As artist's, we spend much time here drawing, sewing and just plain relaxing. There is even a foosball table for the kids, and the adults:)
The ceiling's in the house are all pine tongue and groove with bamboo laminate wood throughout. There is central heat and air also in the home. There is a canoe that can be used for the lake if desired.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
We'd love to have you!
