About Erika Treadwell (Property Manager)

Family home...well cared for and used by family. Quiet street.

Erika Treadwell (Property Manager) purchased this house in 2011

Why Erika Treadwell (Property Manager) chose Central Florida

Family owned property that is well maintained with easy access to major highway US 27. Close to Archbold Biological station, Seminole Brighton reservation casino, beautiful lakes, and close to all major attractions in Central Florida, without the expense. Two hours or less in any direction for short day trips for major cities (Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami).

What makes this house unique

Perfect get-a-way for the adventurer. Rustic setting near fishing, close to a casino, away from it all but close to major highway, shopping, and sight-seeing. If you love nature, Archbold Biological Station is a short drive away. Henscratch Farm Winery is a few miles away.

Clean and comfortable

  • 3 of 5

Stayed at this place in February and found the place to be just as advertised. It was very clean and the beds are very nice. There was 3 of us and there was plenty of room. On the negative side the location was not great but we had no problems with anybody living around the rental. Free range chickens roam the area and a couple roosters like to get the day started early so be aware of that. The place had a very good security system also. The place could use a outside grill. Had to leave early because of family issues but the rental was still worth the cost. If you're looking for a reasonably low cost rental for the winter this place would definitely work. We would give the cleanliness, security and comfortable beds 4-5 stars and the location and morning serenade from dueling roosters 2-3 stars.

Owner's Response: Our thanks to this guest for taking the time to write a review of our little get-a-way. The roosters are loved by some and hated by others...I agree with the 2 out of 3 stars on their American Idol performance. We know the area is not perfect and therefore our home is priced accordingly. We love it and visit often. Neighbors are friendly and not intrusive. In fact, most have lived their for decades. We regret that the guests had to leave early and should they decide to rent with us again, they are welcome and will get at 10% discount. Good point about the lack of a grill. We don't have one for safety reasons but may reconsider. Thank you again...welcome back anytime.

Delightful , Clean and Rooster Lead entertainment

  • 4 of 5

The property was close to Route 27 and somewhat convenient to all Lake Placid venues. The Lake Placid murals are a must see as well as the Train and town museum. You have to meet Jerry as he is full of history for Lake Placid. The property itself was clean and cosy for the four of us adults. The property manager ( Erica ) was extremely helpful in making certain we were comfortable and quickly responded to all of our needs. The two roosters located next door provided early morning entertainment. The property was safe and secure in a quiet neighborhood. The shower head in the master bath is made for someone 5 foot 5 inch not 6ft 2in like myself. But I managed . This was a first visit to the area and is not one that we would visit annually. We have many friends that do go to the area annually and that owned property in the area but our resources are limited therefore we go to many different places each year. We enjoyed our stay at this property and the area.

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate the kind comments from our guest about their recent stay in Lake Placid as well as positive remarks about our get-a-way and Erika our property manager. Having a 6'3" son and grandson plus a 6'2" spouse, certainly understand about the height of the shower head. That is something we will work on improving. As a guest, this family was wonderful. The property was well maintained. This guest and his friends/family are welcome to book our home at any time in the future and we hope you visit Lake Placid again.

Comfortable three bedroom nicely furnished

  • 4 of 5

The house is exactly as advertised. We have a daughter living in the area (Sebring 25 miles) and normally stay at a hotel, however this trip all of the hotels in the area were considerably over priced $220 for a night. We were pleased to find this comfortable three bedroom nicely furnished house. The host was very pleasant and extremely helpful.

location sympa au coeur de la floride

  • 5 of 5

Très bonne prestation pour cette maison située au coeur de la Floride. Nous recherchions pour notre séjour un endroit afin de nous plonger dans la culture américaine (orlando et miami sont trop "internationales" selon nous), sans toutefois être loin de tout. Les locaux sont très accueillants, parfois même surpris de croiser ici des français. Il faut parler anglais, pas d'autre choix. Orlando, miami, Tampa et Naples sont à environ 2h, les sorties aux allentours sont sympas : ferme de crocodile, parc naturel, ballade autour des lacs (il y a des alligators et des serpents, il faut faire attention...). La ville toute proche de Sebring offre toutes les commodités des grandes villes. Si vous êtes respectueux de la culture US alors vous serez les bienvenus. La maison est très fonctionnelle : 3 chbres, 2 SDB, cuisine équipée, salon et même un garage fermé. L'agent immo et la propriétaire ont été à nos petits soins, on se sent comme "chez soi".

par conséquent, nous recommandons cette location.

Owner's Response: We really, really appreciate this very nice review of our little get-a-way. When I first spoke to the guests, I was concerned that they were coming all the way from France and would be dissappointed in our little quaint town of Lake Placid and our rural area. We are beyond happy that they enjoyed their stay and felt that the home was very nice. We would love to have them return for another visit. Merci beaucoup!! Here are their comments translated into English: nice rental in the heart of florida ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Very good performance for this house in the heart of Florida. We were looking for a place to our stay we dive into American culture (orlando and miami are too "international" in our opinion), but not far from everything. The premises are very welcoming, sometimes surprised to see the French here. You must speak English, no choice. Orlando, Miami, Tampa and Naples are about 2 hours, outings at the surroundings are nice: crocodile farm, park, walk around the lakes (there are alligators and snakes, be careful ...). The nearby town of Sebring offers all the amenities of big cities. If you are respectful of the US crop then you are welcome. The house is very functional: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room and even a garage. The agent properties and the owner took much trouble, you feel like "home". Therefore, we recommend this property.

Nice place. Good price.

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and well maintained. Everything worked properly. We had a couple small visitors - 2 lizards and a palmetto bug, but this is pretty typical of Florida and would not say it was a concern. The property manager was responsive and easy to work with. The neighborhood looks a bit rundown and this was definitely the nicest house in the area but there is a good security system and we had no issues.The neighbors we saw were pleasant and friendly. The neighbor behind the house has chickens and 2 roosters. If you are a light sleeper you should bring earplugs as they start to crow loudly at 4am daily. The house comes well equipped with dishes and cooking utensils. This property is best for people who just want a place to sleep and cook meals as the living room den area is a bit disjointed and does not provide a great area for gathering as a big group to watch movies or play games.

Owner's Response: This guest gave a fair and honest assessment of the property and its amenities. The rental rate was established to reflect the neighborhood where the property is located. Very happy that the guest stilled enjoyed the home and were happy with the customer service provided by our property manager. As the guest stated, neighbors are friendly but not intrusive. this rural area there are a few chickens that are a natural alarm clock not enjoyed by everyone. In the rainy season, a palmetto bug will find its way inside on occassion. Something to consider on using the larger living room versus the den for television. We are encouraged that the guest was happy overall with the accommodations. We would love to have them return for a future visit.
