Property description

Central Florida Lodge and Horse Barn

We are extending a personal invitation to visit Okeechobee County, Florida and the surrounding fishing, hunting, hiking or sightseeing.

Address is 19120 NW 270th Street, Okeechobee, Fl 34972
Enjoy this beautiful 2-story log cabin home with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, with an upper and lower walkway to a 5-stall horse barn. Full kitchen amenities with stainless steel appliances, internet service, dish network satellite TV, and a tremendous balcony view of the night sky from the upstairs loft bedroom. Also available on the property is horse boarding or pasture boarding. From equestrian to fishing, hunting or just some R&R, this private property is available by the week, month or year.

This area is the fishing capital of America with hundreds of lakes, rivers and hidden fishing spots. Lake Okeechobee has more bass per square than any other lake in America. This home is located just minutes from the fabulous new Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. The park offers a wide assortment of things to do for people of every age with any interest. There are unlimited outdoor activities. You can see an abundance of wildlife right from the comfort of your own vehicle, you can enjoy hiking or biking Florida's original Cracker Trails, take guided swamp buggy rides, or enjoy unbelievable bird watching, etc.

There is no other place on earth to see the most amazing combination of plants and animals. While hiking in the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park on the Original Cracker Trail, you might startle a white-tailed deer feeding on the tender grass, come across a flock of wild turkeys, scan the skies and see a Crested Cara-Cara or Bald Eagle soaring overhead, or listen carefully and you may hear the endangered Florida Grasshopper Sparrows singing in their natural prairie habitat. Wildflowers dot the countryside including Yellow Bachelors Buttons, Pipe Wort, Blazing Star, Meadow Beauty and the delicate Alligator Lily. Enjoy the prairie by looking into it 'not at it'.

Riding the trails at the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park on horseback is one of the best ways to see the real Florida. Horseback riders are apt to see an abundance of wildlife. The trails take you through cool shady hammocks or the open plains. You can bring your own horses or we can have them delivered to our property or the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park for your convenience (pricing upon request)

It doesn't matter if you're a novice or an experienced trail rider, there is a fun adventure waiting for you to experience. You can stay on the main trails or you can head on the smaller trails and off into the untouched tundra. You will see an amazing array of wildlife. It is unbelievable!

Enjoy the original Florida Cracker Trail and all the breathtaking scenery! Have a picnic on the same historic trail that the United States Calvary built as they forged and battled the Seminole Indians south-ward securing local Fort Basinger and Okeechobee County. Lunches can also be provided upon request.

Enjoy your ride.

Perfect activities for all outdoor adventurers and nature lovers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a United States Army combat veteran, accompanied by 30 years of fast paced high stress lifestyle. I developed premature heart disease and almost died. I desperately needed a stress reliever in my life. I have always had a passion for the great outdoors. However, I had lost touch with it competing in the rat race in Broward County. Since I love the outdoors, I decided one day to head west in Florida and see what may be out there waiting to be found.

Why the Owner Chose Okeechobee:
While driving around in the country, I found what everyone there calls the "Prairie". It was here that I came to a place called Okeechobee. This is now what I call my secret hideaway that has rejuvenated my soul and physiology as a human being. This is the place where you can experience her majesties, the almighty Mother Nature’s life force stronger than anywhere else on earth.
