Lake Placid House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our home in Lake Placid, Florida, located in Highlands County, 100 miles south of Orlando on US 27, 100 miles southeast of Tampa and 100 miles northwest of West Palm Beach, Lake Placid is 'in the center of everything while in the middle of nowhere.' Known as the 'Caladium Capital of the World', Lake Placid is a small town with friendly people in the middle of Florida, safe from crime and the fast pace of the typical Florida big city.

Our spacious home is located on Lake Clay, a large, sandy bottomlake with clear, clean water ideal for fishing and water sports. On a private, dead-end street, our 3300 square foot, beautifully furnished one-story, 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is situated on two sprawling lakefront lots with 202 ft. of beautifully landscaped lakefront. Enjoy a beautiful view of the lake from every room in the house. Perfectly located, you can actually walk to Publix, restaurants, etc.

It's perfect for relaxing or entertaining, with a screened 8' x 20’ porch with seating for 10 people overlooking the lake, an oversized dock, large entertainment deck, and a strip of sandy beach. Our dock will accommodate jet skis/boats. And pets are welcome, if they are house-trained.

About John DiPaolo

We have owned this property for over 12 years and our guests have felt at home when they visit. We accommodate your needs to make you comfortable.

John DiPaolo purchased this house in 2004

Why John DiPaolo chose Central Florida

We chose Lake Placid because is a small, friendly town perfect for getting away from the city. The lakes are beautiful and it's the perfect place to bring kids and friends for a weekend of fun on the lake. Lake Clay is perfect for boating, jet skiing, tubing, and fishing because it is big but not SO big that the water is choppy.

What makes this house unique

Our house is at the end of the lake on a dead-end street and totally private. We are on two lakefront lots and the front and back yard are huge, perfect for letting your pet run around. Our location is ideal because we are feet away from US 27 in the center of town, walking distance to Publix and other shopping.

Awesome lake views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lake views from every room. We enjoyed eating on the screened porch, having a fire in the fire pit, relaxing in the hammock and the convenience of keeping our boat right at the dock. The lake was the perfect size for water skiing and tubing. The kids all had a blast! Thank you John for an easy and enjoyable rental!!

Escape to the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to enjoy Lake Clay. The backyard with the spanish moss oak is really amazing. This home is great for family gateways. Beautiful house plenty of room with a big renovated kitchen. The dock area is wonderful either to enjoy the lake or to sit and relax.

Lake Clay is the best lake in Lake Placid !

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several times from the Dipalo's and we absolutly love the property and location. We enjoy water skiing and the lake is one of the best in the Lake Placid area for water sports. This last year they have recently renovated the kitchen and did a great job with new landscaping and the sandy beach which our kids love. Cant wait for our next visit to Lake Clay.

Our favorite lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at this lakehouse several times over the last five years. We love it more each time we visit! The DiPaolo's have always been very gracious and excellent communicators. The house is very spacious, charming, and private. We spend most of our time fishing at the dock where we have always caught good-sized bass. The backyard and dock are well-lit which is great for night fishing. The house is located close to a public boat ramp (next street) and across the highway from a bait shop. We can't wait for our next visit!
