Why Max or Anne Meinel chose Lake Weir

This property was unspoiled, all forested, and offered opportunity to nestle the house among native trees and wildlife where nobody had cleared before. Maximum trees and native plants have been retained. Wildlife is appreciated and views are natural.

What makes this house unique

Architect designed and built this home to maximize the spectacular forest setting, using major glass areas to frame vistas from every room. Featured is a great room with ceiling slope matching the roof, bedrooms/baths on opposite sides of the living area. In this house you can experience the Florida wilderness in comfort and style.

Nice rental and location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and the property. We have rented many places around the country and this was as presented in the listing. Our only negative comment was we had to hunt for the bath/kitchen towels and bath mats. In addition, the dishes and silver ware were still in the dish washer.

Very peaceful. Very clean.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing three day stay. The trails were great for walking the dogs. Silver Spring State Park was very close by and we enjoyed both the float and opportunities for photography. We would definitely stay again!

Quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Quiet and relaxing, but within 30-45 minutes to see the jewels of Ocala National Forest. We recommend this house to anyone who wants to feel like they are out in the country. We had a great experience.
