Overview

About the property

Retreat. Relax. Escape. Renew. Rejoice. Perfect Family Weekend Getaway..

Our house is a recently redecorated home on the River Ranch Golf Course in the heart of Central Florida. We are 25 miles from the nearest town, Lake Wales, and just outside Westgate River Ranch, a premier resort destination. You can freely go in and out of the resort and use all their amenities, without having to pay resort prices. Watch the most amazing sunsets over the Golf Course, and endless stars while you relax around the fireplace or in our 8 person hot tub.

Our house is set up for two families of four with two King Beds, and a bunk room that sleeps four kids. We have direct TV, and the house is fully stocked with utensils, appliances, towels, washer drier, Kurig, Coffee Maker, etc. We vacation at our home as much as possible, but decided to rent it so others could see what we love so much about the location.

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK US IF YOU PLAN ON HAVING 8 ADULTS IN THE HOUSE. WE DO NOT WANT ADULTS SLEEPING ON THE TOP BUNK BEDS UNLESS THEY ARE SMALLER/ LIGHTER ADULTS.

Westgate River Ranch boasts a multitude of recreational activities, including horseback riding, 9 hole golf course, petting farm, nature hikes, trap and skeet shooting, hayrides, cookouts, a full-service marina complete with boating, fishing, airboat and swamp buggy rides. Westgate River Ranch also features a 5,000-foot paved and lighted runway, award-winning Smokehouse Grill, River Ranch Saloon and the longest-running Saturday night championship rodeo in the United States. Rodeo night is every Saturday , 52 weeks a year! This real-life rodeo features trick riding, bull riding, calf roping, barrel racing, rodeo clown antics and a patriotic, flag-waving tribute to our armed forces accompanied by uplifting, classic country songs. In addition, kids are invited into the rodeo arena toward the end of the evening and get the opportunity to participate in a real “calf scramble.” Don’t miss it!

YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO WESTGATE’S POOL BUT EVERYTHING ELSE THE RESORT OFFERS.

New additions to Westgate River Ranch include an 18-hole miniature golf course, rock climbing wall, zip line, mechanical bull, bungee jumper and more.

This is a great location for pilots, only being a 5 minute walk to the River Ranch Airstrip (2RR).

Bring your Golf cart, the entire place is traveled visited by Golf cart. The resort rents Golf Carts but they do not allow them to leave the property.

WE HAVE A RENTAL GOLF CART AVAILABLE FOR AN ADDITIONAL $50/ DAY..

Since we fly to the house, we have all of our transportation etc. in the garage, the garage is not available to guest, it is our "owner's closet".

WE STAY CURRENT ON THE RATES OF THE RESORT AND SURROUNDING RENTALS, AND HAVE STAYED AT THE RESORT BEFORE WE PURCHASED THIS HOME. THIS HOUSE IS PRICED ABOUT HALF AS MUCH AS A COMPARABLE HOME IN THE RESORT AND BETTER DECORATED WITH A BETTER VIEW AND JUST AS CLOSE TO THE ACTIVITIES. THE PRICE IS ADJUSTED FOR WEEKDAYS, AND WE LOWER THE PRICE DURING THE SUMMER. PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO DISCOUNT THE PRICE. IF YOU DON’T SEE THE VALUE, PLEASE BOOK ANOTHER HOME.

About Mike Brill

We live in Palmetto Bay, just south of Miami. We have four kids, 24- 8 years old and very active boaters and world wide travelers. We have a 6 seat Cherokee Six which we use to fly to River Ranch whenever we can get a free weekend between our daughters busy volleyball schedule and our busy schedules

Mike Brill purchased this house in 2017

Why Mike Brill chose Lake Wales

After spending many years visiting River Ranch, we purchased this home for a variety of reasons besides our love of River Ranch Resort. First it is close (only one hour from Miami in the plane) while being worlds away. Second our older kids live in Palm Beach and it is only an hour and a half for them to visit. Last we are never bored, yet so relaxed when we are at River Ranch. We go boating and visit the fish camps, go four wheeling, the Rodeo is awesome, or just relax out back. This is the only vacation spot that fit our criteria, and our favorite house in River Ranch so we bought it!

What makes this house unique

For us the most unique benefit is that is is so close to the small airport. We did not want to be on the resort property because we like to boat and go four wheeling and side by sides are not allowed in River Ranch Resort. This house is actually closer to the airport than the properties within the resort. We also don't like to be on top of everyone, and this house offers the most amazing view and it is very quiet..

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this house. It’s perfect for two families of four. Two kings and two bunk beds (four twins)...why more people don’t arrange a house this way, I just don’t know?! The home is beautifully decorated and really plays up the rodeo theme with cute, modern decor. The hot tub was wonderful, the view and a cup of coffee is a great way to start the day. We went to the rodeo on Saturday night and had a blast. Highly recommend!

A memorable family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family was thrilled that I made the decision to rent the house! The accommodations were very comfortable and perfect for our adult children and grandchildren. We enjoyed sitting around the fire pit, playing horseshoes, and bean bag toss. The grandkids had a great time on the swing. We also enjoyed all of the activities at the ranch! All in all, we had a great time and the house was perfect for our family. We would like to thank the Brill family for allowing us to stay in their home.

Cute, relaxing, perfect for a family weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was conveniently located right outside the River Ranch gates in a quiet community. We loved the simple, yet stylish decor, and the house has everything you need for a fun family getaway. We loved the screenporch and hot tub and we definitely recommend getting the golf cart to visit all the great places the River Ranch offers. Don't miss the rodeo and the airboat ride was fabulous too! Hoping to come back some day in the fall, thanks for sharing you cute home with us :)

If your a little bit Country, & Shes a little bit rock and roll!

  • 5 of 5

You will love it here. The house is as quite as you could ever ask for, and the Saloon is as loud as you know how to be. We were there for a family time with kids and grand-kids. Everyone really had a great time. The house was everything the owners said it would be. Very easy to do business with and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to any friend or family member.

Thanks so much Mike!
