The Peaceful lakefront dock faces the sunrise over the water, allowing you to start your day in the beautiful natural world with wildlife abounding.
We truly enjoyed our stay here - we didn't want to leave! The house is very homey & nicely
decorated. DeLand is a nice town and we enjoyed exploring. We played tennis, biked and walked a lot
plus relaxed on the deck and the dock. Thank you for sharing your home.

We selected this home to provide housing for the bridesmaids for my daughter's wedding. The groomsmen were in a lovely house on an adjoining property. It could not have been more perfect. There was more than enough room for everyone and the home was comfortable and wonderfully decorated. With two kitchens, two living rooms and a relaxing sun deck, there was plenty of room for everyone to gather or just to slip away to take a few quiet minutes to enjoy the gorgeous river views. The location was great. Just a short drive to our downtown Deland wedding site and the many eclectic restaurants. The grounds were beautiful and provided an excellent venue for some of our wedding photos. Sadly, we did not have time to take advantage of the river access or the nearby parks. We hope to return for a family reunion in the future. Highly recommend!
We had a great three months at this rental property and created a bunch of good family memories.
Easy access to Lake Beresford and St.Johns River with the ramp and boat dock on the property,
We caught a lot of nice fish, Stripers ,Large Mouth Bass, Crappie and Catfish. Lots of wildlife and birds
to view. The owners were very easy to work with and quickly fixed any problems.
We certainly plan to go back again when we can. Buddy, West Virginia
