Perfect Social Distancing Getaway! Time travel back to our Old Florida Ranch recreation! Rock on the porch and be entertained by the antics of the goats and chickens. Savor a quiet evening on the screened porch by the fire pit listening to the crickets and frogs with your favorite drink in hand. The Ranch house will acquaint you with a bit of the Old Florida life but with modern conveniences and access to Danville amenities

The space
This is my interpretation of a Florida "Cracker" House of the early 1900's with air conditioning ,wifi and indoor toilet. We call it the Cracker House, referring to early Florida Cowboys and the homes that they made in this rugged landscape.

The Ranch House kitchen is equipped with a replica icebox and a authentic 1900 wood stove that is retro fitted with gas. There is also a microwave hidden in the ice box, cooking gear, and coffee maker. The bedroom has an antique dresser and a comfortable wrought iron Queen size bed. In the living room, there is a gas fireplace and comfortable couch along with a dropleaf table and chairs. The television with surround sound, cable, and DVD player which can be viewed from either the living room or the bedroom. The bathroom is equipped with a shower. The Ranch House has air conditioning and heat.
"Florida's old-time cowboys had a unique way of herding cattle. They used 10- to 12-foot-long whips made of braided leather. Snapping these whips in the air made a loud "crack." That sound brought stray cattle back into line fast and earned cowboys the nickname of "crackers." Many rode rugged, rather small horses known as "cracker ponies."

Danville is the creation from the imagination of Dan Shaw. With the help of Deborah, his wife of 50 years, they set out to build a guest house on their private airstrip in Geneva, Florida. The airbnb guests are fun and unique, it is a wonderful experience to meet them and get to know them. I enjoy sharing a beer at the DanvilleBnB pub where they meet other guests and some of my unique neighbors.
