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.

We stayed at "The Lake House Bed & Breakfast, Inverness Florida" on December 21 & 22, 2013. Tim and I (ages 54 and 52 respectively) had a lovely visit and was made very comfortable and welcomed. I especially appreciated the attention from the little black dog who adopted me right off. (We left behind our own dachshund herd of six.... More

My wife and I spent a week in the Keys. This was a strategic stop half way home. It turned into a Wonderful 2 night stay for a beautiful and extremely comfortable weekend. Can't say enough about Kathy the accommodations, Invernessas as a community. Will return and highly recommend this as a destination. So much to do in the surrounding... More
