This is a delightful place to stay. Quaintly decorated rooms, welcoming host and easy access to Inverness. Excellent breakfast too! We cycled the Withlacoochee Trail and stayed with Cathy. She is a welcoming, and pleasant host who saw to it that our stay was as pleasant as possible. Cathy was informative and helped us choose good restaurants. We will certainly...

Traveling with a friend to do some biking on the nearby Withlacoochee Trail. Cathy is a sweet, delightful, friendly hostess, who makes every effort to accommodate special requests. Rooms were comfortable, breakfast very good. The b&b itself is an older cottage, filled with furniture, collectibles, eclectic. Located right on the lake, plenty of chairs outside to sit and enjoy the...

I stayed here while scouting Citrus County for a possible residence. Cathy made me feel at home, like one of the family. She was friendly and knowledgeable of the area. She has several regulars, one couple of which was staying there. The location was very peaceful and had lake access. Yes, the grounds and the house could use a bit...

We booked here for a 2 night stay expecting a well kept facility as shown by the pictures. Our hostess arrived about the same time we did but not before we had a chance to look at all the porches and grounds. It is obvious that the place has seen better days and needs a lot of help to get...

Cathy was as sweet and charming as can be and made us feel right at home. we enjoyed the beautiful location and the southern old florida charm.

We have stayed at the Lake House B&B Multiple times over the past 10 years, regardless of were we have lived, and it only gets better each time. Beautiful surroundings, stunning views and a house steeped in rich history (ask your hostess Cathy to show you her photo albums which portrays the history of the Lake House). Interior decorated in...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at The Lake House while house- hunting in the Inverness area. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast.

Very nice place. Large, tastefully decorated room with private bath. I would have rated this higher but for the following. Needs a bit of maintenance. Wall unit air conditioner VERY LOUD -- sounded like an airplane and kicked on every few minutes throughout the night, disrupting our sleep. Shower controls missing cover plates exposing connections into shower wall. Water going...

If you're looking for a Hilton, this B&B is not for you. This quaint old Florida style house is tucked away and has amazing lake front view. Kathy, the owner, provides you with a spacious room decorated antique style. Our king size room had it's own bathroom attached. You will find collectibles throughout the house. Kathy allows pets and has...
