Bordering Lake County and Orange County, just south of State Road 50 sits the magnificent Johns Lake. The 2,424 acre lake is divided into east and west pools with a connecting channel. Some residents of the area will actually refer to this lake as the “John’s Chain” as the lake’s shoreline is varied enough to create the impression of multiple lakes.

The south and eastern shoreline of Johns Lake is almost totally undeveloped and helps to create a very peaceful lakefront setting.


Johns Lake is famous for bass fishing, but is also home to a generous amount of shellcracker, bluegill and speckled perch. The lake is shaped by irregular bottom contours and experiences moderate water fluctuations. Even under our recent drought conditions the lake levels have held up nicely.

Shallow water offshore occasionally forms islands from emerging vegetation growth, but this is rare. These islands make great fishing spots replete with bass and schools of bluegill and shellcracker.

What Our Clients Say

Mike and Monica and their team are outstanding, dependable, honest and honorable. There is a chance he is part magicia and as well, because no one expected our house to sell so quickly or for the price we wanted!

Monica helped us find the perfect lakefront estate and was amazing in helping us negotiate a deal we felt was fair for all parties.  We highly recommend Derenthal-Cook.

Without hesitation, I can refer Mike as a true professional who will make the sale of your home his top priority.

If you want someone you can trust and who will tell it to you straight, yet is also totally sympathetic to your concerns, give Mike a call.

I can say with full confidence that Mike would treat anyone as well as he has me and my family.
