My private vacation home is now available for you to relax and enjoy nature. You’ll have access to 7 acres to enjoy life under an indigenous oak hammock. So, sit back relax and listen to the birds sing, watch the moss blowing in the breeze or perhaps witness the birth of an ecosystem. This area is know as the fishing capital of America which includes the Great Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River along with other hidden fishing spots around the surrounding area. It's about a 30 minute drive into downtown Okeechobee where there are several restaurants, bars, a movie theater and a couple of grocery stores for your convenience. 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 Trail or take a guided swamp buggy ride or enjoy an unbelievable bird watching. 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 "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. 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 Bassinger and Okeechobee County.
