Scottie Swor purchased this estate in 1987
To live on Lake Weir is to be in a vacation paradise all year long . We have been privileged to enjoy this enchanting lifestyle since 1987. Over the years we have built our two acre estate into a beautiful haven for guests of all ages. We love sharing our home with people who appreciate nature and who are seeking a respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
We live only 7 miles from The Villages, Florida's premier retirement community. All the great chain restaurants are nearby. Lots of great shopping, and ,of course, golf! Many of our guests have told us they love visiting and playing in The Villages but prefer staying on the lake where there is so much more room to move around. This is especially true of guests with small children or dogs.
Our two plus acres is the ideal venue for small weddings.
What a great place for a family reunion! We celebrated my dad's 80th birthday party and Father's day in the same weekend. Everything was just as described on the website. Everything is clean and the grounds are well maintained. The bunk house is so fun. The kids enjoyed the "play pen" as they called it. It's a small room just for the little kids that has a bed, toys, books and a tv that plays vhs movies to entertain the kids at night before they head off to bed. There are also bunk beds which the kids flipped a coin for the top bunk. Full refrigerator upstairs in case it was needed if the kitchen frig is too full. The master suite is GORGEOUS! Great big bed with a balcony and two sitting areas. The Cottage where my parents stayed was perfect because my dad could not do the stairs. There is a place to gather outside under a covered area for every meal that accomodated our whole group. It was nice to eat together and then visit in one area. Oh the beach area is awesome! Lots of sand and open area for everyone, chairs and loungers provided. The beach house is so darling. It also has a frig so that you can have popsicles for the kids and cold drinks too. The breeze is just right and the sunsets are perfect. We had a photographer come and take family photos of our group. One with the water in the background and the other with the beautiful flowers that the owner's have planted. There is also a huge oak tree that would be great for photos. Scottie and Larry are the best. Oh Sam's and Walmart are close by so you can wait until you get there to do your food shopping. You don't have to carry a bunch of coolers. It's also nice and quiet. The beach is private so you get it all to yourself. Room to park your boat and they have a canoe and kayak to use. Beach umbrellas if you don't want to sit in the direct sun. We brought our two dogs too. Scottie and Larry THANKS for EVERYTHING!
This place is amazing!!! Not only for a wedding but to stay for the weekend or how ever long you can stay. I couldn't have asked for a better location for our wedding day. So many places to take fabulous pictures. Scottie and Larry are so awesome! They have everything needed to have a big or small event. We stayed in the bunkhouse and it slept several people for the wedding. I even had some people stay in the top of the boat house. Nothing like waking up on the water! Especially when it's cool at night and you can leave the French doors open so the breeze can come through. The beach sand by the lake is absolutely amazing too! So manicured, along with the rest of the property. I love Lake Weir and go there pretty often. No other property compares to Swor Cottage! Thank you to the Swor's for being so accommodating, generous and allowing us to experience the life of living on Lake Weir for the weekend.
Scottie and Larry are so accommodating, and we are so glad we chose the Swor Cottage due to that reason. They helped so much the days leading up to the wedding, as well as the wedding day. If you think the pictures are nice you need to see it in person, it's breathtaking. I receive so many compliments from the background pictures, I couldn't have imagine a more beautiful place to get married!
Best vacation ever!!! Swor Cottage was so good for our family. It was loaded with charm and adventure. The Swor's were so kind and we recommend it to everyone...
I could never say enough good things about Swor Cottage and the people here! My husband and I married at Swor Cottage in April, and it truly was the wedding of my dreams. As beautiful at Swor Cottage is in pictures, its even more gorgeous in person, and definitly worth a visit out there. The owners, Larry and Scottie went out of their way all weekend to accommodate everything that I envisioned to make sure that I had the day I dreamed of. From the planning stages months in advance, to last minute changes the day of the wedding, they were welcoming and helpful every step of the way. There was room on the grounds for family to stay as we prepared for the wedding, and we could enjoy the lake and grounds all weekend. The result is that we have amazing memories of time spent with family and each other. The lawn, oak tree, boat house, beach and cottages were all perfect for our wedding and make for beautiful photos! My husband and I cannot wait to return someday. I would recommend Swor Cottage to anyone for a wedding, vacation,or any other reason.
Our stay at Swor Cottage was in the Bunk House and compares to nothing else we have ever experienced! There is a surprise at every turn when you survey the grounds with beautiful beach and fresh oranges and grapefruit hanging off the trees waiting to be picked. From a casual kitchen with easy access to the lake to ooohs and aaaahs at the top of the stairs. It brings you back to another era where the tough and tumble shared space with western luxury. The beds guarantee a good night/week's sleep. The quiet and peaceful lake enviorement can be replaced with a short drive to many golfing opportunities, shopping and restaurants.
The hospitality of our hosts will long be remembered. They were always there if we needed them but rarely visable when we were on the grounds. We look forward to our next visit to Florida at Swor Cottage.
