About Mary and Keith Betham

This property has been in my family since the 1940's. The cabin was built in the 1960's as a weekend get a way by my parents. I actually lived in Lakeport until I was 9 years old then moved to Orlando where I currently live. But we do go stay in the cabin as often as we can. My husband and I have recently done a major renovation on the cabin replacing the outside walls, new insulation ,new windows and new central air and heat.

Why Mary and Keith Betham chose Lake Okeechobee

The Lakeport area is a place where there are no strangers as every one greets you as if you have lived here forever. You can even learn to play washers with the locals!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin has a metal roof and on a rainy day what can be more relaxing than being curled up on the couch with a good book or have your neighbors honk their horn to say hello while your having your morning coffee on the porch. Therefore the name 'Lazy Living'.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lazy Living for one week. There was 3 adults and two kids. The place was so nice, when we first walked in we were very impressed. It is always sketchy when sending money to someone and arriving to a place that may or may not even exist. Mary was so nice and kept me comfortable throughout all of my hesitations. We are already trying to plan our next vacation back! OH, the fishing is GREAT in Lake Okeechobee!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the cabin and are planning to come back. We try to make all of our guest feel at home during their stay so they can relax and just enjoy themselves. There is something about Lakeport that allows the stress of every day life that can be so hectic just leave you while you are there. Looking forward you coming back soon. Mary and Keith

Sweet Quaint Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed and completely loved the atmosphere. It was very cozy, but spacious at the same time. It was quaint and had a good home feel. The fire pit was nice and we even grilled out on the patio one night. But I have to say that the Hammock was the best part of everything! Laying in it, looking up at the sky through the trees was so relaxing! Thanks Mary and your wonderful hubby for being so amazing!

Owner's Response: As the owners of Lazy Living we didn't know what to expect when we decided to rent out our cabin to vacationers. What we have found to be the best experience of all is the wonderful people we have met who have stayed at our place and we so look forward to seeing them again. The hammock can lure you into a afternoon nap even if you didn't know you wanted one and at night you can look up and the stars seems close enough to touch. We may have to add a second hammock! In the mean time the rocking chairs on the porch are pretty comfortable to. As usual we are always trying to do things to the cabin to make it even more comfortable for our guest. Mary and Keith

My Stay at Lazy Living

  • 5 of 5

First,i would like to say that the Host's Mary & Keith were very helpful and very nice. Thier place exceeded my expectations and that is not done to Theri was plenty of room all around. It was a very peaceful environment inside and out. The cabin was very clean and cozy. The small family owned restaurant across the street was very good. TheCcasino was not to far away with another good restaurant.The trading post has fuel and a small grocery with an ATM. This located before the Casino.

I would recommend to family and friends and i will be returning.

Thank You mary & Keith

We are a small community but we have so much to offer, like great fishing, beaches not far away, hunting, a casino, hiking, boating, bird watching and many other activities. Glades County is truly Old Florida! Mary & Keith

Lakeport Cabin February 2013

  • 5 of 5

We had a great February in sunny Florida while staying at this Lakeport cabin. The hosts provided everything you could want and more. They even added internet service during our stay. The hosts could not have been nicer! We are already looking forward to our stay in February 2014. The cabin is less than a mile from Lake Okeechobee access at Harney Pond Canal. Great fishing on the Big O!

Owner's Response: It is easy to be nice when you have such wonderful guest and to look forward to seeing them again next year! Having wifi has been great for all of our guest. We are still working on the cabin making more and improvements to ensure the comforts of our future guests. Our cabin is a place where you can sit back take your shoes off and breathe which is why my parents named it "Lazy Living".You couldn't find a better place than Lakeport to take some time out and enjoy your self.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay! What a wonderful experience to have the two of you as our first guest. We feel honored that you will be back next year and can't wait to see you. The cabin is a wonderful place to really relax and just enjoy life at a slower pace than we are all used to in our every day life, which we all need to do sometimes. Or if you are one who likes to be on the go there are plenty of things to do and see. And of course there is always the great fishing! We have been ask to add Internet for our guest, so we did!
