On behalf of your sponsoring Member, we are delighted to have you as a guest of Mountain Lake, and we hope this information will make your visit more enjoyable.


Mountain Lake is a private community established in 1916. Mountain Lake includes over 125 homes, a recently restored and top-ranked Seth Raynor golf course, and the centrally situated historic Colony House.  

Originally, all of Mountain Lake was planned by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. In 1916, Seth Raynor designed and built the golf course - one of the oldest private golf courses in Florida. In the mid-1920’s, Edward W. Bok, the publisher of the Saturday Evening Post and The Ladies’ Home Journal, was so impressed with Mountain Lake that he not only built his home here, but also created the Bok Tower Gardens in appreciation to America for the opportunities that it had afforded him.  Bok Tower is famous for its extensive gardens and world renowned carillon.  The tower music can be heard softly all over the Park.
