Kathy is a wonderful and attentive hostess. The old hunting lodge is very charming, albeit a tad dark at night. Our room was large enough and very clean. The bed mattress was a little bit too bouncy for my taste, but everything else was perfect.

This was my first visit to the Lake House, I have a house in the area which is currently leased and I was there to check on it. Cathy is a great host, and loves to decorate the Lake house and makes you feel welcome and meeting other guests was very warm and easy. I would recommend this b+b to... More

During your visit, you will feel like you are personal guest in Kathy's home. The Lake House is an older but very spacious home with a large, lovely yard and interior filled with antique charm. We were the only guests through our 2 day stay so we enjoyed quiet privacy too. Spotty internet service.

We were looking for a place to stay while our close friend was home on military leave and The Lake House was absolutely perfect. It was true southern hospitality at it's finest. We've all got plans to stay there when he comes home again. I'd recommend this lovely place to absolutely anyone looking for a getaway!

What can't you like about 'old Florida'? Majestic oaks; long rolling lawn to the lake; Florida native plants abound the gardens . Inside, Cathy has taken this 1930's hunting lodge to new heights of elegance. Soaring stone fireplace in the main living area with a wagon wheel chandelier. Many comfortable setees, cushions and 4 large skylights bathe the room with... More

If you think you'd enjoy a sumptuous breakfast served by a host with a ready wit after having spent a restful night in a comfortable bed, then give Cathy a call at The Lake House. Cathy's lake side home is a fabulous retreat from a chaotic world, all within easy reach of the charming downtown of historic Inverness, the Withlacoochee... More

Old Florida style with a great hostess. Property sits right on lake quiet and quaint. Stayed May 23rd till May 26th 2014. You may enjoy a evening boat ride with the hostess. Breakfast is fantastic and always includes fresh fruit!

Another great stay at the Lakehouse at Inverness, FL. Sunset over Lake Henderson was beautiful - Ref sky I'm the morning, sailors warning. Red sky at night, sailors delight. Dinner at the house with Cathy and Debbie. Evening boat ride tomorrow with dinner on the pontoon.

This is one of the nicest and friendliest places we've ever stayed and we travel a lot. The property is unique, kind of like staying at a European villa. Its especially nice if you're in the area for bike riding. Its a fantastic value and a place you'll remember.
