Lake Placid Fl Waterfront Homes
& Sebring FL Waterfront Homes
NOTE: Since Jan, 2009, Melissa has sold more waterfront homes than any other broker or agent in Lake Placid, Sebring & Avon Park. That is because she knows all the area waterways and finds the best deals!
The reason we moved to the area was the quality and quantity of lakes. We paddle, fish, ski, swim and explore virtually all the area waterways.
NOTE: We had a significant drought for several years, but it's OVER! That said, we saw which areas on lakes and canals that suffered most during the drought (some docks & boathouses were in inches of water). Well keep that in mind when showing waterfront homes ... after all, there could be another drought at some point.

Want to “explore” a great trail from a lakeside state park? Lake June In Winter State Park is right on the shores of Lake June. There is a family of American Bald Eagles right on the shore in a stand of dead trees, easily visible by boat when approaching the park on Lake June. There is approximately 3 miles of pristine shoreline on Lake June - and this will prevent development and preserve this area!
Many of our clients love Florida for diving, fishing and other water sports - we're into quite a bit oursleves! Here is Dan's latest shark diving video/slideshow (he took the pics and vids) - pretty wild!:
Area Boating & Fishing
The lakes are the undisputed number one attraction in Highlands County. We've caught many largemouth bass in many of the lakes in Lake Placid, Sebring & Avon Park. Melissa caught a 7-pounder not two weeks before I wrote this! We catch and release the bass because there is quite a bit of fishing, but many people eat them as well as the excellent and more plentiful panfish (specks).
There are several public fishing areas in the parks around the lakes. Bishop park is on Lake June Rd. and has great picnic facilities, boat ramps and a good dock and fishing pier. Lake June Ball Fields is a huge park off Deen Blvd. "behind" downtown Lake Placid. There are boat ramps, a swimming beach and a fishing pier. These are just a couple of the many parks found around our lakes. Some, however, such as Placid Lakes Park, are only for residents. Lake Jackson in Sebring has public ramps, as well as Lake Clay and most others - see any road map for a wide variety (and we suggest trying several lakes!).
