Located in: BABSON PARK, FL
An ideal family vacation spot, our 1920's Crooked Lake Bungalow, located in Babson Park, Florida has been lovingly restored and well maintained for decades. We have welcomed vacation renters for more than 20 years, with many guests returning for more than 15 consecutive years.
Spring fed Crooked Lake is over 4,200 acres and is an "Outstanding Florida Water". Outstanding Florida Waters are rivers, lakes and other water features designated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection as "worthy of special protection because of their natural attributes." Outstanding Florida Waters have special restrictions on any new activities that would lower water quality or otherwise degrade the body of water.
Crooked Lake is an ideal lake for many water activities. Fishing for tournament bass and speckled perch (Florida Crappie) is a year-round sport. Boating, swimming, stand up paddle boarding, jet skiing, water skiing, and kayaking are fun activities for families. Watching stunning sunsets, or simply relaxing on the white sandy beach are always an option too. Bring your own boat and watercraft. A cement boat launch is available on the property.
In a quiet private-home neighborhood along the Scenic Ridge Highway, our Bungalow offers comfortable space for 6: Living room with satellite TV, DVD, and DVR; Dining Room; fully equipped kitchen; Sunroom overlooking the lake with dining table and seating area; 3 bedrooms, and two full baths. The master bedroom has a King bed and an adjoining bath with shower and tub. The lakeview bedroom offers a King bed, and the third bedroom has a queen bed. Just off the sunroom with panoramic views of the lake, there is a spacious lakefront covered porch for reading your favorite novel, cooking on the gas grill, dining, and gathering in the comfortable seating area less than 40 steps from the water’s edge.
On the beach, you will find for your enjoyment a large tiki hut, a shaded hammock under the palm trees, Adirondack chairs, and beach volleyball poles (bring your own net and volleyball).
For bird watchers, we often see strolling sandhill cranes, soaring bald eagles and ospreys, colorful wood ducks, anhinga, herons, black-bellied whistling ducks, Florida mallards, herons and other wildlife.
