Bring your boat or enjoy the views from the land, this gorgeous lake house has it all! Built from Cypress cut from the property, this house was home to the original settlers of the area.

In addition to championship golf, the resort offers guests an opportunity to experience trap & skeet shooting, tennis, fresh water fishing, nature trails, a pool, playgrounds, many restaurants, and more.

In addition to championship golf, the resort offers guests an opportunity to experience trap & skeet shooting, tennis, fresh water fishing, nature trails, a pool, playgrounds, many restaurants, and more. You'll run out of vacation days before running out of things to do at Mission Inn Resort & Club. The house is fully furnished with a fully stocked kitchen. Three bedrooms include a master with a king bed and a master bath, and two additional bedrooms: one with a full-size bed and the other with a queen and a twin. These two bedrooms share the guest bath. The living room has a queen pull-out sofa for which linens are provided. We have a pack & play if you would like to use it (bring own crib sheet & blankets). We do generally accept small and medium-size dogs with a nonrefundable pet fee of $200. We do not have a fenced-in yard. Our house is a wonderful place to bring children as there are peacocks that roam the neighborhood and lots of wildlife to be seen around the property. The Yalaha Bakery is in walking distance of the house and has live music on Saturdays from 11 to 2. The house is conveniently located just 10 minutes from grocery stores and restaurants. Other Area Activities Located in Central Florida, Yalaha is sequestered from, yet convenient to, the world's most famous theme parks and attractions in Orlando. In addition, Yalaha is surrounded by an assortment of activities and nature experiences that complete any vacation. Lakeridge Winery – Clermont's award winning winery offers tours and insight into the cultivation and harvesting of the grapes, along with samples. Mount Dora – Antiquing in this lakeside community is plentiful. Yalaha Bakery – Authentic German and Bavarian master bakers serve delicious treats in an authentic old-world German setting. Canoeing – Both the Juniper and Wekiva Springs offer excellent excursions. President's Hall of Fame – Located in Clermont, this White House replica features life size wax figures of each U.S. President and additional memorabilia. Nearby Cities & Attractions Approximate drive time to/from major Florida cities and attractions: Orlando – 35 minutes Sea World Adventure Park and Discovery Cove – 45 minutes Walt Disney World – 45 minutes Universal Studios Florida – 45 minutes Daytona Beach – 75 minutes Tampa – 90 minutes Free boat ramp just around the corner. The popular and historic Mount Dora area is only 15 minutes away. Mount Dora merchants invite you to shop their quaint downtown boutiques and antique shops. Bicycle, fish, or water ski on Lake Dora, golf, and dine in the fine restaurants. Centrally located, approximately 1.5 hours to spend a day on an Atlantic Beach or in the opposite direction, a day on the Gulf side. Our children love visiting the town of Tavares, only 15 minutes away by car or boat. Tavares is the Sea Plane capital of Florida and the quaint downtown has a great waterfront with delicious restaurants and a huge playground and splash pad. No visit is complete without a visit to the train. Children also love visiting Uncle Donald’s Farm (15 mins) where you can meet adorable farm animals up close, or the Amazing Exotics Education Center which has more than 300 exotic and endangered animals on view. The Trout Lake Nature Center has picnicking, hiking and environmental education opportunities, and you can be a cowboy for a day at Fiddler’s Green Ranch, where National Mounted Police horses are trained. Eighteen beautiful golf courses are located near Tavares, and wine-tasting tours are available at Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards (15 mins). Tavares is host to the annual 'Downtown Fall Festival' at the end of October, and the 'Light Up Celebration', usually held in late fall. Pick this house because of the amazing views over the lake, free access to the Mission Inn Resort (under 5 mins) and the peace and relaxation of the countryside - just a short drive to the excitement of Orlando and the Parks.

We travelled to Florida with our 3 children (12-18), mainly to "do the attractions" but also see a bit more of the US than just staying in a hotel. This house was ideal as it was right on Lake Harris, with fantastic views to watch...More
