About Margie Bridges
Garrett and Laura moved to Winter Park shortly after they were married and both found employment in the Central Florida area. They were immediately taken with the charm of Winter Park, especially the historic College Quarters area surrounding Rollins College, as it is nestled among tall oak trees with views of Lake Virginia. They found their dream home, a 1925 bungalow, and over time welcomed 4 children into their family. As their family grew, so did their need for a larger home. Unwilling to say goodbye to their first home and their wonderful neighbors, Garrett and Laura decided to enter the world of vacation rentals until they can one day return to the house they love so much. Their hope is that you too will find this bungalow and this neighborhood to be a special place to stay!
Margie Bridges purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Margie Bridges chose Winter Park
Only two blocks from Park Avenue, this historic bungalow home is perfectly situated for all of your vacation needs! Stroll the Avenue and its unique boutiques, dine al fresco at one of the many delicious restaurants, relax in Central Park, take a ride on the Scenic Boat Tour, shop the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, or enjoy a night of entertainment at the local Cineplex or playhouse. Visitors to Rollins College will enjoy the convenient one block walk to campus. This home is also conveniently located to Downtown Orlando, the brand new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Amway Center, and Citrus Bowl. If theme parks are your thing, you can be to Sea World, Universal, and Disney within 30 - 45 minutes. Beach lovers will appreciate the proximity to New Smyrna and Cocoa Beaches.
What makes this Cottage unique
This charming home has been renovated with all the modern conveniences but still maintains its historic charm. It is located on a quaint street that runs into beautiful Lake Virginia, part of the Winter Park Chain of Lakes. Walk down to the lake to take in a glorious sunrise! The surrounding neighborhood is perfect for long walks and runs. At dusk, let the screened in front porch call your name to enjoy a glass of wine or head out to the side patio and fire up the grill for dinner. On cold nights, light a fire in the fire pit and enjoy the stars above as you snuggle up with your special someone.

Margie was wonderful to work with, very kind and caring. The home clean, wonderful location, beautiful street. Front porch was comfy to read a book - listen to the trees rustling in the wind. Lake Virginia at the end of block a perfect walk. Park Ave within walking distance, easy dining and exploring out the front door. You will not be disappointed - I will be back. This is a Gem!

Very nice cottage, with a nice floor plan and all the amenities to enjoy a great time. Great location in Winter Park.
Wonderful property and attentive host!
Walking distance to Rollins College and Park Ave. Fantastic host! Extremely clean and roomy.
Had a wonderful stay... the house is adorable and had everything I could have possibly needed for my 4 night stay while visiting my child at Rollins. Perfect location- he could come over whenever for a meal or I could walk over to meet him at the school or on Park Avenue. Margie was super helpful as she was able to accommodate my early check in time. Thank you- had a great time/mini vacation!!
