Located off the beaten path in the beautiful Trail Ridge lake region of North FL, Vause Lake (a.k.a. Lake Fanny) is a lovely 100-acre, clear water lake. Our cabin is situated beneath pine, Nyssa, & sand live oak trees. 2 BR/1 BA with great karma!
We are an easy-going family and love life's simple pleasures- family, good friends, music and meeting new people. We'd like to share our little slice of shangri-la so that others can enjoy its rustic charm as we do.
Our little spot is everything we think a lake cottage should be: low-key, funky, comfy & cozy.
There are two good-sized bedrooms, one bathroom, and a large living area comprising the kitchen, dining area, and family room.
Bedroom #1 has a queen-sized bed.
Bedroom #2 has a full bed, and a twin-over-full bunkbed.
The family room has a t.v. hooked up to a digital antenna (no cable or internet) and a piano. There are board games, as well. The couch in the family room folds out into a bed.
The kitchen is fully stocked. There is a laundry area with washer & dryer. There are also plenty of towels, sheets, and blankets available.
Outside there are 2 porches- a covered one that expands the width of the house & faces the lake with a picnic table and a seating area, and a small screened-in porch at the back. In the yard are citrus trees, cabbage palms, hydrangeas, camellias, azaleas & gardenia shrubs with an overstory of Nyssa, Oaks, Pines & Red Cedar trees. There is a great kids' fort with a rope swing, as well as an outdoor shower next to the house.
There's a lovely new covered dock.

Please keep in mind that Airbnb charges a service fee that will be in addition to the nightly rate & cleaning fee.
Please treat our cottage like you would if you were at your beloved Grandmother's house :)
No parties or events.
Put dirty towels, etc in laundry basket.
Load dirty dishes, pans in the dishwasher.
Put things back where you got them.
We'd prefer if you didn't turn the air conditioner down below 76 degrees (it's "vintage" and doesn't handle this well). There are ceiling fans in every room, so it's very comfortable.
Please turn the AC off when you leave.
Put full trash bags in the wooden trash "cage" that is at the end of Tomahawk Rd at Indian Lakes Rd.
Please clean up spills, etc that happen.
Very young children are welcome, but please be aware that the home is not baby/child-proofed.
Please respect the surrounding environment and neighbors (who are lovely!), and do not feed any wildlife.
If you make a fire in the fire pit, watch it continuously and make sure it is out before leaving the area.
Do not throw food scraps in the lake. (I know, this seems common-sensical, but we've now had folks that have done this. So, please, just don't- that's icky).
