                  • Rustic Cabin, the rustic cabin played a major role in the folklore and culture of central Florida. Early settlers had to build their homes using locally available materials. They also had to be sturdy so would stand in a storm. (Our homes are built to withstand hurricane force winds). They had to go up quickly so they could provide shelter from the elements and protection from local Indian attacks (just kidding again…most of us are the friendly type). Steeped in the rich history of past centuries, this cabin emulates the look and feel of a time when the pace of life was a lot slower and the folk very cordial. ...moreless
