PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING A BOOKING. Rates and availability may vary. If booking for a US holiday, or anytime in the December-January period, the rates may be substantially higher. We may need specific information from you in order to coordinate reservations. It is best to let us send you an offer with the correct pricing and details to suit your circumstances. Plus, we'd generally like to learn something about you and hear that you have actually read what is written here!
We want to hear something about you and your group to make sure that you will be happy here BEFORE there is a reservation. If you write us and describe your group and plans, we can get back to you promptly. Both host and guest must approve any proposed reservation. We need to hear from you in order to feel comfortable having you as guests. Describe your interest and situation and let us make the offer, please!
Also, please see our other Orlando listing: "Lakeside Cottage--Efficiency" for smaller groups.
Thank you for looking!
Guests will love the newly renovated kitchen complete with stainless appliances. The cozy & sunny main bedroom holds either two twin beds or one king, depending on the situation. The small second bedroom has a full-sized bunk below, with the above bunk generally just used for storage. There is also a pull-out sofa in the small living area. The Cottage is fully self-contained with it's own private entrance, kitchen and bath.
Early Florida lake homes were often oriented facing the water instead of the street. The lake side is where the fun is and the street side is just how you get there! Our property is an extreme example of this philosophy. We are secluded from the street by tree cover and fencing. When you drive into the property you are in a large parking area that is largely hidden from the street. This serves as a buffer for the recreation areas that are beyond the main structures.
On the lake side we have two full-size beach volleyball courts, a covered pavilion area, a double-decker boat house, and a bonfire pit and hammock area down by the water. We are currently working on an outside kitchen set-up so that we can host our volleyball picnics without need to walk up to the house.
Owner is a born and bred Orlando local who is available for advice, local knowledge, and generally how to get the best value around town.
Potential car usage for guests with their own insurance. But this can' be guaranteed and should be considered a convenience to be discussed after booking.
Owners MAY be available for airport pickup by prior arrangement, for less than a cab would charge.
Separate but adjoining efficiency apartment also available for somewhat less. It has it's own entrance, bath, and kitchenette with a sleeping loft above and a futon on the ground floor. Pictures included in this listing along with the rest of the cottage because sometimes these two spaces are rented together.
REPEAT: Please contact us prior to booking. Special rates may apply or we may need specific information in order to coordinate reservations. Simple things like the number of guests in relation to bed configurations need to be discussed. We have the ability to combine or exclude different bedrooms to suit the situation, but we need to understand your needs and interests.
Thank you for considering staying with us!
Sam was very thorough with info and directions. A very warm welcome. Neighborhood good, but facility a work in progress.
Good little spot definitely close to all, it has a lot of potential to be really nice. A bit dark inside, just a couple of little windows. A little hard to find, but Sam provides very helpful instructions and talked to me on the phone to guide us in. We didn't meet him until the morning we left and he was very friendly and hung around to chat and show us the sweet log cabin on the property. Yoga on the dock in the morning was a great way to start the day.
The cottage was clean and Sam was very friendly. For the short stay we had it was what we needed.
Sam was a great host. Although we were in and out a lot, if we needed it, Sam provided. Good rooms and good view and definitely "Close to all."
We stayed overnight and Sam was extremely welcoming and very helpful. The view of the lake is great and the place is very close to the airport.
