Lake in the Woods, a Serene Florida Community

One of the most remarkable achievements of the Hernando County community of Lake In the Woods is to give the illusion of being secluded.  Even though it is convenient to local businesses, Tampa, the Gulf, and the highways, you might not guess from the inside.  This is a very peaceful place.  Indeed there are lakes here, and you can enjoy fishing in them, practically in your back yard.  Lake in the Woods houses range from around 3000 to 7000 square feet in size.  Even though this is not specifically a 55+ community, it is still a great place to retire.
