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.

This was a girl-friend getaway and when I found the Lake House, I found exactly what I was looking for. A gorgeous house with a cottage feel, and people who made you feel right at home!

If you are a regular at B&B's. add this to your list. Great location, solidly built with great architectural features (soaring stone fireplace) , interesting house with a history (built in early 1900's), and night sounds off the lake which could put you in the Amazon with a little imagination. If you don't stay at B&B's as a rule (that's... More

I'm not usually a B & B type person as my decor preference leans more toward modern and minimal and I like to have privacy. However, for this weekend getaway, we wanted something in a small town and reasonably priced. The Lake House was perfect. The location was quiet and the innkeepers could not have been more friendly or hospitable.... More
