Creek Ranch offers a unique combination of ranch, lake, nature and relaxation just a short distance away from the parks and buzz of Orlando.
The Cocke / Black family have run the ranch since the 1960's and have now opened their home up to guests to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and activities on offer for a completely different Florida stay.
With only seven beautiful en-suite bedrooms and a rustic 3-bedroom bunkhouse in the grounds, a stay at the ranch is a very personalized experience. Either take the ranch exclusively and be the only guests there or alternatively, just take one or two of the rooms and enjoy your stay with other like minded guests.
A stay at the ranch is fully inclusive of all meals and beverages. The ranch has its own private chef and so all dietary requirements can be taken into consideration. Guest can enjoy fine locally sourced food during their stay everything from breakfast to cocktails hour is freshly prepared by the chef.
Trail riding and riding lessons are included within the stay. Have a go at lassoing, learn how to saddle, all in the capable hands of the ranch's resident cowboy / horse trainer.
For those who don't wish to ride there is still plenty to enjoy and explore. Creek Ranch borders Lake Hatchineha, a 6665 acre lake perfect for canoeing and boating. Try your hand at fishing with superb bass fishing and watch for alligators and bird life along the way.
Take to the ranch's "swamp buggy" for an exciting view of the ranch. Head off in search of over 90 species of bird spread out over the 1400 acre nature preserve of the ranch. With nature preserves and state park's bordering ranch there is plenty of opportunity for guided hikes and visits and over 8 miles of riding trails.
When you've had enough of the outdoor excitement, head back to the bunkhouse (main house) for a little rest and relaxation. With a maximum of 16 guests ever at the property there will always be a quiet corner for you to retreat to. Enjoy a cup of coffee in one of the trademark "red rockers" rocking chairs, take a dip in the outdoor pool, pick oranges right off the trees in the gardens and take them back to be freshly squeezed or curl up with a good book from the living room shelf.
With all the fun of Disney and Orlando less than an hour away yet a world away, this is a perfect before or after theme park stay. In complete contrast yet just a short distance away

Families are very welcome at the ranch and will find the environment a lot of fun to explore. Activities can be arranged to suit children's needs and requirements. They will particularly enjoy the air boat and swamp buggy and exploring the grounds including the hay barn and turtle pond.
There are no interconnecting rooms at the ranch, however, rooms across the hallway from each other are possible or family rooms are also available.
The ranch main house (or bunkhouse) has a cosy living room and dining room, deck with red rocker rocking chairs and there is a pool for guests to cool off in.
The ranch is yours to discover and enjoy like a home away from home. The private chef is on site for all meals and will be happy to work with any dietary requirements.
A stay at the ranch is all inclusive of riding, riding lessons, boat rides, swamp buggy trips, hiking and biking.
Bass fishing is also available (charges may apply for equipment rental and licences).

When to go
Florida is a year-round destination with balmy winters, but summers can be hot and humid. The best time to visit Florida is in March and April when it is warm and sunny, before the weather begins to get too hot. Hurricanes and other less serious tropical storms can strike Florida any time in the summer up to the end of November, however the risk is greatest between August and October.
