CHAIN OF LAKES POOL HOME WITH BEACH AND BOAT HOUSE

Winter Haven House Rental Photos and Description

Big, Bright, Roomy, 2 Story, 5 Bedroom, 5 Bath

The Lake House at 1443- At over 7,000 square feet, this two story 5 1/2 Bedroom, 5 Bath home is a great way to escape to the warmth and solitude of Central Florida. A privately gated yard leads to a circular drive with a grand entrance. Park your car in the shade of a large live oak or pull into the 3-car garage which adjoins the large game room with 8' pool table.

Next is the spacious, modern kitchen, separated from the combination Dining and Living “Great Room” with and arched window. The Great Room overlooks the pool and beautiful Lake Roy. Here you might enjoy the Yamaha Player Piano, filling the home with sound as will the Wifi accessed Whole House Entertainment and Security system.

The adjacent Theater Room boasts a 14 foot diagonal screen with surround sound (for night viewing only) that can be enjoyed from the Great Room, yard and pool... even from the other side of the lake!

Down the hall to the Master Suite, you’ll enjoy a large custom Steam Room with two Rain-Forest showers, matching wash basins, a Closet Room, a private deck overlooking the lake and private access to the pool area. Down the hallway the other two Bedrooms share a bathroom, one through the walk in closet, one down the hall.

Upstairs is also part of the Great room, as it is viewed from above from two spacious loft areas, bridged together over the dining room. Both offer amazing vistas of the lake, pool and front yard. The first loft includes a wet bar, entertainment center and exercise/dance floor and access to the upper-level lanai. Walk across the indoor bridge to a second loft that offers a secluded getaway for reading, office work and a foldout couch for another place to rest.

Also at the top of the stairs are two large guest suites, one with a lake view and open air access to the upper lanai, the other is larger, with a view of the front yard and drive.

Eric and Dee Hinshaw are the 3rd generation owners and managers of Chalet Suzanne, a Depression Era world famous Inn located in Lake Wales, FL. After a great career at United Airlines, Eric retired in 2009 to devote his total efforts to their historic property.

Eric and Dee Hinshaw purchased this house in 1991

This property is our dream home, in our dream location, a quiet neighborhood located close to all the things that are important to US and our family. We invite you to enjoy it as we have for so many years!

When we were designing our home, Dee wanted something that we could 'see through', so large windows that offer a great view of the lake, even from the front yard, were the result. The Great Room is truly great and the sound of the grand piano fills the entire property with elegant notes, even when the discs are being played. As a pilot, I was a techy sort of fellow so we put a lot of technology into the home. With an active young family we really needed a large game room and that has been one of the most popular places to hang out, with an open pass through to the kitchen that doubles as a Breakfast Bar.

From the Game Room there is access to the large pool through a bathroom that is designed for both handicapped and kids, with a wheelchair accessible shower and open vanity. We love the weather in Florida and the incredible amount of stars that can be seen at night so we decided to not screen the pool area. The full intensity of the sun is enjoyed on the pool deck and is only broken by frequent dips in the cool water! The upstairs guests have direct access to the pool as well as they walk out to the lanai and down the spiral staircase and into the pool area. Let’s not forget the Master Suite access through the Master Bathroom. Yes, I guess you can say that life around the pool was a central part of our design!

We do enjoy watching movies. Lots of movies! When we were planning our theater room the Projection and Screen store told us to put up a large sheet and move the projector from front to back and determine from experimentation the screen size that we preferred. Dee and our daughter, Audra, were busy and unable to take part in the exercise. That left the boys and I and maybe that was not a good idea. We ended up deciding that “bigger was better” and chose to go with a screen that goes from wall to wall! We hope you enjoy it as we have.

The upstairs Double-Loft serves as a video game area, a card playing area, exercise and dance area, the best place to watch the party below and, across the bridge, a secluded office and library with an impressive collection of literature. Both lofts have a great view of the pool and lake activities as well as the front drive.

Dee and I weren’t really crazy about jet tubs but we did enjoy relaxing in steam rooms, so we added that feature to our bathtub, a large custom tiled area that features a handmade stained glass window designed by Dee and a glass enclosure, two rain-showerheads and two spigots for filling the large tub. Just touch the button on the control, walk away for about 10 minutes and come back for a luxurious steam room experience!

Our lakefront has been kept more natural than most. Our family has enjoyed the presence of otters, ducks, coots, gallinules and other flora and fauna that exists in our area. We have maintained a small beach area that allows a clear access to the lake for both swimming and water skiing. The double boat house includes a roof deck for enjoying the lakeside activities of the day, the peaceful starlit nights and the calm, misty mornings that the lake can offer.

MY JOY CAME BACK!

  • 5 of 5
From beginning to end this was a wonderful experience. Dee responded quickly with the various email messages before our vacation and she was accessible to me even during our stay. The home was WONDERFUL! It was stocked with everything you would need for your stay. The neighbors were even friendly. I was able to use my wheelchair because it was so spacious. I have to be honest...my entire family fell into a mild depression because we had to leave. Another confession...I MUST GET THE CENTRAL VACUUM SYSTEM! I made my oldest want to clean. ;) The family want to come back for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. Thanks Dee and Eric.

LAKE ROY FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
First time using VRBO/Homeaway to find vacation rental. We were not disappointed. The listing is exactly as described and then some. We had 3 families stay the week. 6 adults and 6 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The home is in a great location, 45 min from Orlando/theme parks and about 1 and 1/2 hours to Clearwater Beach which we visited during our stay. We took our boat over to Legoland to watch the ski show - only about 5 minutes away by water. Quiet, but friendly neighborhood. We had some issues with our boat trailer and the neighbor loaned us some tools. Grocery stores are nearby and Eric and Dee were only a phone call away. Would love to go back again!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
This was the 1st time we have ever rented a vacation home. The Lake House was everything and more. We had 3 children and they thoroughly enjoyed every minute. There was plenty of room and everything in the house was updated with beautiful linens, bedspreads, towels and everything you would need. The grocery stores (Publix and Walmart) were about 5 minutes away. We took in the Yankees spring training game. Disneyworld is about 45 minutes away. We did not get to go to LEGOLAND, but very close to the house. Very quite neighborhood. I would recommend this Lake House and Eric and Dee always responded to our questions bv phone or email. Loved the vacation....

Me and my friends go on a week long vacation every year. And every year we use vrbo to find our place to stay. This house was awesome. Way better than the pictures look. Backyard and lake were beautiful. The house was spacious and clean. Can't wait to go back next year. The owners were very responsive and easy to communicate with.

BETTER THAN WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in HomeAway residences before and have always been very pleased with the results, but this place was above and beyond anything that I have experienced. It was like new. It was very high end. It's location was perfect. It was HUGE. It was well equipped. What started out as a place from which we would enjoy our vacation became the vacation itself!

We will be back, but next time we will be sure to simplify our schedule so that we can spend more time enjoying the home rather than feeling guilty about missing out on all the other good stuff in the area. Oh, and we'll bring the boat.

Location, Location... Only minutes away from Legoland Florida by either Boat or Car, you can also explore over 120 miles of shoreline through the Winter Haven Chain of 16 Lakes (up to 26 lakes once the lock is completed.), with access to shops, restaurants, theaters, bars, etc.

The Winter Haven Chain has been listed by CNN Travel and Leisure as one of the 'Top Ten Lake Vacations in the US'.

Only steps away from the nation's top Wakeboard Coach, Dave Briscoe's Ride Center, where you might learn a new art or hone your already developed skills of wakeboarding and waterskiing.

This part of Central Florida is Aviation Central, home to Fantasy of Flight Museum and aviation experience, Sun ‘n Fun Museum and Fly In, Tailwheels Etc. Flight School and Biplane Rides, Jump Florida Skydiving and Florida Skydive Center. If Seaplanes are your passion, stay at The Lake House and enjoy a short flight to Jack Brown's Seaplane Base, which is just across town, to learn to fly or to add another rating.

Michael,

You should get an invoice for your final payment in a couple weeks. It's due by 2/21/2012. if you'd prefer, I could go ahead and send it to you now. Let me know if that is the case.

Regarding restaurant recommendations, well, we'd have to recommend our own! Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, visit www.ChaletSuzanne.com to learn more about it. Opened in 1931 by my grandmother, Bertha Hinshaw, Dee and I are Third Generation Owners. Chalet Suzanne, after decades topping out the dining charts for the state, was the very first inductee to the Florida Trend Golden Spoon Hall of Fame and has been honored with countless other awards through the over eighty years it's been serving discriminatiing gastromonists.

So, with that in mind, you'll understand why we tend to avoid recommending chain restaurants, of which there are plenty around. For evening seafood, Harry's Old Place is very popular. We also enjoy the lunchtime cooking of Chef TT at the Saltwater Grill, across the street from Legoland. For Italian fine dining visit Arrabella's in downtown Winter Haven or L'incontro in Lake Wales. For the best in Southern Comfort food go to Fred's Country Kitchen for breakfast and lunch. For affordable steaks, go to Norby's in Lake Wales, or Manny's Chop House in Lake Wales or Winter Haven.

Andy's Igloo is a great old fashioned diner with good food and ice cream floats. If you're out boating on the chain of lakes go by Harborside restaurant on Lake Shipp. Sonny's or Shack's are both great place for barbeque and very family friendly with their 'Family Feasts' that will take care of the whole household.

This part of Florida offers so much for families to experience. For more opportunities explore our area online.

Thank you for considering us as your Travel Headquarters for your central Florida Vacation
