Beautiful sunsets !!!
Our second stay. Just kind of cold to use second bathroom on porch. WiFi and dish wonderful !! Thanks, Luis !!!
Favorite lake vacation
This was our second stay at this lovely lake cabin and we are eagerly looking forward to our next visit already. It's a little piece of heaven. The house is perfect for us, comfortable, well equipped, and convenient. Wi-fi and TV are exceptional although not used much because the reason you go here is to relax and unplug. Luis leaves all the lake toys you could possibly need available for your use. The dock is amazing and where we spend almost all of our time when not out on the kayaks exploring the lake. Wine and HD's at sunset on the dock conclude the day. The title of the listing says it all!
Also very convenient to Blue Water Bay restaurant in Melrose which we adore.
Thanks again for a terrific getaway!
Great little house!
I used this house with two friends for a guys only fishing trip. The 3 bedroom house was really perfect for our needs, but we really only needed a place to sleep and shower. The low rate was a big consideration for us in choosing this property. For others, there is a fully furnished kitchen with full-sized appliances, dining room table with room for 6-8, plenty of comfortable seating around the TV, and tons of puzzles and games to keep everyone entertained when not enjoying the lake. Check out McHenry's Irish Pub in Keystone Heights (less than 10 minutes away) for a fantastic family oriented sports bar! We went there twice during our stay. For breakfast, Keystone Inn Family Restaurant can't be beat!
Our only critique (as other reviewers have stated) the well water is fairly offensive. Even when used only for showering, you will smell of water for a while afterwards. And by the 4th day, I noticed an orange tinge (from the tannins) on my fingers. Not sure if this is an issue with other houses in the immediate area, but it should be resolved. That being said, we'd still consider this property next year for our fishing trip.
Old Florida cabin loaded with charm!
We had a wonderful time at this cabin. Everyone in the party agreed that this was the most charming, unique, and fun cabin they had ever been too. What a view! What a location! We can’t wait to come back. Slept 7 of us comfortably and no one felt crowded. What a gem!
Another great Staycation !!
Great stay, good weather and relaxing. We love this time of year on the lake and this home makes it pop! The only way I could give it 5 stars was if I owned it!
How vacations should be!
This vacation rental was wonderful! A bit rustic, but everything you could ask for. Within minutes of arriving the kids had decided that this particular vacation stay would be better than our previous three! By the end of our stay we had decided to make this our new summer tradition. There is plenty of room and all the amenities you need.
As a boat owner I could not have asked for any more. The dock was perfect for swimming and providing and place to load and unload tubers and knee boarders. Lake Sante Fe was magnificent, 6000 acres of old Florida beauty.
We highly recommend this location for your next Florida vacation!!! 10/10 would recommend. #oldflorida
