We had the pleasure of staying in Historic Clermont in this apartment. The apartment overlooks Montrose Street. I can't say enough about the kindness of Chris Ballard, the landlord. Regina in his office was so accommodating with accepting mail and packages for us. For us, it was like a piece of paradise for the four months we stayed there. There is so much activity going on all the time. Every Sunday there is a great Farmers Market literally right outside our door. Once a month they have Food Truck night with live music. About every six weeks, they have a wine walk. These are just a few of the activities that go on in the downtown area. The downtown is very quaint with collectible shops, a wonderful tea shop, a great coffee shop, yogart shop and restaurants and more. We loved being able to walk to the post office, the shops and so much more in the area. The people in the area are so friendly. We are both in our sixties and we felt completely safe walking in the evening. It's a wonderful area for people of all ages. Our children and grandchildren visited and loved the area.
There are activities and events constantly going on at the lake which is right down the street. The lake area is beautiful. We loved walking it every day with our dog. There are benches, bridges to fish off, a splash pool area for children, a beach for swimming, kayak rentals, bike rentals, etc. There is a restaurant on the lake.
A very short distance away you can connect with the main highway for groceries, the chain restaurants and all kinds of shopping including the big stores like Target, Walmart, etc.
I highly recommend this rental.
