History of Lake Weir
In Weirsdale, on the south shore of Lake Weir, a well-known spot will be coming to life again. The original founder Jay Eaton, a New Jersey resident, bought the white sand beach front property in 1924. With the hope of developing another Coney Island, a 30 foot boardwalk over the water, a dive tower, a boat house and even a three lane bowling alley were built. Many local Florida residents and tourists made lasting memories there. Since 1943, the property was bought and sold by three different families. The Houser family (who’s snooker billiards table is proudly suspended from the ceiling above the lower level sandbar), the Enos family (their grandchildren were known for their competitive swimming, which originated the annual Lake Weir Marathon swim that we proudly sponsor today), and now local Lake Weir residents Randy and Sue Keuntjes. With the complete rebuilding of the beautiful lakeside restaurant, the Keuntjes’ hope has become a reality. The 6,000 acre recreation Lake Weir offers many kinds of wildlife and water activities such as fishing, skiing, kayaking, sailing and frequent sea plane visitors; just a few of the things you may see sitting beachside. Arrive by land or water with their newly constructed dock and boat slips. Casual and comfortable dining with amazing sunsets over calm water awaits you.
