Relaxed stay

  • 5 of 5

Needed a relaxed few days after touring Georgia & South Carolina for 18 days. Stayed at Anne & Max's horse farm on way back to Orlando airport. Good suite with plenty of room and everything you could need. Quiet and peaceful with horses, dogs, peacocks and chicken to keep you amused and company. Anne & Max were great hosts, there if you needed and left you alone when it suited. Will stay again if in area

Working Horse Farm get a way

  • 4 of 5

We loved Max, Anne and Captain Kid (Puppy). He kept us entertained as any puppy would. My wife learned all the horsed names. We were allowed to feed them Apples. Max and Anne had good conversation but still gave us our space. The duplex was very roomy and well stocked. The atmosphere was so relaxing. We loved walking the property and taking pictures. All in all I would come back in a heartbeat! Thanks Max and Anne for a great time.

Beautiful and peaceful farmhouse , Harley and Marley approved

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse is so beautiful. Anne and Max are excellent host. They have thought out every little detail to make your stay perfect. They truly love animals and people. The outside grounds are beautiful. This farmhouse is perfect for families, children and pets. My 2. Dogs Harley and Marley loved the grounds. I was worried, because they have never been around farm animals and horses. They would come up to the horses and bark. The horses handled it really well. They also got to meet the owners dogs and loved them. Anne and Max are really passionate with their farmhouse, animals, horses and dogs. Anne and Max gives you the privacy you need, but are also available if you need them or have questions. The pictures they posted are their farmhouse are beautiful, but experiencing it is person is priceless. There is a lot of information of things to do in the area and if you have a dog and need to leave them at the house, there is a nice fenced in area they can enjoy or use the doggy door. The doggy door can also be locked, if it is not needed. I went up to Ocala to get some rest and enjoy the beautiful horse farms. This is a luxury farmhouse, without the high prices. There were no added on or hidden charges. I personally like to take my dogs with me everywhere I go. I was able to goggle and find 27 restaurants that accepts pets. The mojo grill is one I suggest, you won't be disappointed. I will be renting again from Anne and Max. Thank you again for being great host and allowing me to experience your way of life on the horse farm.
