Overview

Northwest Orlando House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Recently renovated 1940's lake front cottage on 500 acre Lake Fairview just to the northwest of the City of Orlando. This unique location is midway between downtown Winter Park and College Park. Just minutes from Interstate 4 and downtown City of Orlando. Very close to both Disney and Universal's theme parks. Just 45 miles from Daytona, and 90 miles to Tampa. There is an unbelievable selection of shopping stores, specialty shops, movies theaters, and a restaurant for every occasion. Recreational alternatives are available from the cities of Altamonte Springs, College Park, Winter Park, or the City of Orlando. The historic Dubsdread Golf Course of Orlando is only 5 minutes away which features an 'after dark range facility'. We are central to three different hospital medical facilities. Pontoon boat rentals are available by contacting The Lake Farview Marina on the other side of the lake. Lake Fairview offers up a great sunrise in the morning, and a spectacular sunset at days end. Just add coffee in the morning, cocktails in the evening, and you've got one of Florida's very best recipes to enjoy. Come visit us sometime. Greg & Peggy...

Fabulous!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at this beautiful cottage last summer as I was in town for a medical procedure. We were 10 minutes drive to Florida Hospital but boy is the cottage secluded and quiet. Huge yard, spacious back porch, wonderful dock and crews going by. Just wonderful and only a few minutes drive to College Park & Winter Park. Greg and Peggy are wonderful hosts and we became great friends during our stay. The cottage is beautifully decorated, gourmet kitchen and all of the amenities! We hated to leave and we are thinking of taking a trip to Orlando just to stay at the cottage and not take in any of the sites. Great sense of calm. You will be delighted with this rental!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 college age kids stayed here for three nights for the Citrus Bowl. We could not have been happier. Cottage was still decorated for Christmas and was just lovely. Beds were all very comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. It was private and peaceful. Hard to believe we were right in town. Very convenient to everything. The only downside was only one bathroom, but we managed quite well. It really was beautiful.

Perfectly Charming in Every Detail

  • 5 of 5

My son and I recently spent 10 days in Greg and Peggy's wonderful lakefront cottage. It surpassed any rental home I've ever booked in charm, attention to detail, amenities, cleanliness, comfort and location. Greg and Peggy made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. I was amazed at the incredible furnishings, decor and kitchenware. There was nothing I could have wanted. The cottage is located in such a quiet place, you can't help but feel relaxed. The view of the lake from the huge back porch is spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the water birds, daily rowers and other lake activities. Additionally, the cottage is located within minutes of downtown Orlando and all that it has to offer. I can't wait to return for another stay!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect place for the family to stay while attending my son's graduation at nearby Rollins College. It was clean, beautifully decorated and completely comfortable for 5 adults. We will miss the large screened porch where we sat and shared wine and stories. The owners provided everything for a comfortable stay, including high quality bedding, a fully equipped kitchen and large outdoor grill. Don't miss 4Rivers Smokehouse if you like barbeque! Thanks Peggy & Greg for a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in November. Lovely setting,

carefully maintained cottage. There were many

extra things provided by the owner, like coffee in

the kitchen, that made our stay enjoyable. The

entire building was recently renovated and the

owner has added many amenities.

The location would seem to be on a very busy road,

but it isn't. There is total privacy and quiet. The

owners provided a kayak which allowed us to

explore the lake. And the screened-in large room

at the back provided an airy place from which to

enjoy spectacular sunsets.

We have family in the area and look forward to

returning and staying here again.

Well, Our family was lucky enough to have stayed in this beautiful cottage in March for a few days. The place was immaculate, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. Peggy & Greg were so welcoming & sincere. We will be back in the fall for another visit. Paul & Maria
