Eustis is a charming small town that is currently in the
process of completely reinventing itself. In 2003, the
Waterman Hospital, which dominated the downtown Eustis skyline
for many years, relocated south to Highway 441.
This move created a large new downtown area ripe for
development. Eustis is a unique waterfront City with a
downtown area virtually on the shore of Lake Eustis. The City
docks are open to the public and it is possible to dock your
boat and walk a short distance to dine at restaurants and
browse the many small shops that line the downtown streets.
Downtown Eustis is vintage Norman Rockwell, where one can walk
brick-laid streets, feel the breezes from majestic Lake
Eustis, smell homemade sourdough bread or see a play at the
Bay Street Theatre. In fact, in 1993 Eustis was named a Main
Street City, one of only a handful in the State.
buffs will enjoy a visit to the Clifford House, a
Neo-classical Revival house serving as the Eustis Historical
Museum. The 18-room mansion was built in 1911 and features
pinewood floors, brass fixtures, six fireplaces and Italian
tile throughout. The house was placed on the Registry of
Historic Places on 1975. Weekly afternoon tours are available
to the public.
Ferran Park on the shores of Lake Eustis is a popular retreat
amount locals, the site of sailing regattas, 4th of July
festivals, the Lake Eustis Fine Arts Festival, held in
November and the Light Up Eustis Christmas celebration.
The Eustis downtown merchants sponsor frequent street
festivals with live entertainment and a popular monthly
classic car cruise. The Eustis Lake Walk is a new addition to
the town. It is a modern concrete boardwalk with beautiful
iron gates and railings where you can walk the lakefront and
may even see someone catch a fish or two.
Lake Eustis Foundation was
established to develop the new downtown area opened by the
hospital's departure. New retail/office space is being
planned on the first floor and 2 story townhouses above street
The City of Eustis' motto is "The City of Bright Tomorrows".
Nowhere is a motto more fitting than on this beautiful Florida
City on the Lake.
This website also contains a powerful search feature that
provides direct access to the State of Florida Multiple
Listing System (MLS). This is the same database that Realtors
use to find property for their clients. We know how
frustrating it can be to call on an advertised property and
find that it has already been sold. Our listings are
automatically updated as soon as a new property comes on the
market and removed as soon as it expires or becomes pending.
