Fantastic, beautifully furnished retreat settled on a horse farm

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a nicer place to stay! The pictures don't do the house justice! Room for everyone, quiet and relaxing, and feels like home from the first moment! Butch, the manager, was easy to communicate with and available for any random questions. Even let us bring our dogs! I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Added bonus a great usable grill and fire pit and a carport big enough to fit our huge truck AND car!

This place was everything we needed and then some. We loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was a great experience as this was the first time we have done this. If you have friends or family that are staying at Williston RV Resort and they want to visit, this place is perfect for the visit. Any questions we had were answered very quickly. We enjoyed the quiet setting and for us it was as close to home with the horses all around as we could ever expect. Highly recommend this place.

Relaxation overload

  • 5 of 5

The Williston welcome sign says "come once, you're a guest, come twice you're family." We've found this to be true for this little town and this property and the owners. Thanks for another great year!

The Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

What a great relaxing experience in the quaint equestrian town of Williston, FL. Evening fires on the back patio and sunset sitting on the front porch. Sit back and enjoy the scenery of watching beautiful horses grazing and get a chuckle or two watching the black angus cattle. Enjoy the beautiful home and its rich interior decorating. Believe me all the comforts of home can be found inside. My husband and I had a great experience over the holiday season and we were most welcomed by our host and the neighbors. We would definitely come back!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

The pictures that are posted on the website are just a snap shot of the property. The Hse is big, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated & the kitchen is well equipt for preparing meals.

The ranch is serene and we enjoyed watching the cows in the AM and having a class of wine next to the fire pit in the evening. We weren't able to keep a continuous fire since wood was wet due to lots of rain, this time of year.

There's a few restaurants fairly close and an supermarkets, CVS, Walgreens in town of Williston. Really enjoyed our stay here and looking forward to coming back again soon.

Thank you Butch / Jodi for your help!

We hope to be back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for several weeks and it pleasantly exceeded our expectations! The house is very spacious, well appointed and tastefully decorated. We particularly liked the layout of the house, and were thankful for the carport, which kept our car cool during those hot days and kept us dry during those occasional downpours! The separate office space was ideal, and I was able to do my work without interruption. Not only was the house very clean, but the surrounding gardens and farm were kept immaculate. We hope to rent this house again when we come back!
