THE RANCH is a historic property in the heart of Florida's Spring country. We've created a farm experience near the Suwannee, Santa Fe River, and Ichetucknee river run. "Hatchbend", named for "Hatch's bend in the river", this property includes the entire B&B grounds-all access! Two boat launches within 3 miles, 8 area parks within a 25 minute drive. The home is luxurious with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 living areas and a large open kitchen. Jacuzzi in rear off the deck. 6 adult guests maximum.

The space
Guests have access to animal feeding activities and a large B&B property, including nature walks along the grass airstrip. Plenty of parking. Our quiet neighborhood is surrounded by farm operations. High Springs with its antique shops is also nearby. This area hosts festivals during the seasons. Our winters are crisp with nighttime frosts occurring. Limited snacks and beverages included. The kitchen is fully appointed. There is a four person spa off the back porch for your use, as well as a nicely maintained pool in the "front yard" shared with limited B&B guests. Small dogs, less than 20 pounds, in non-shedding breeds are welcomed. Please note---Large, aggressive, or shedding breeds cannot be brought into the home. There will be a $50 cleaning fee if dog hair is found during cleaning. We try hard to avoid this extra charge issue!

Guest access
This property borders our former Bed and Breakfast operation, now a cooperative with the Ranch, and you have access, but please respect it as a shared property! This leaves almost 40 acres to freely roam----not including the nearby peaceful country roadways. We even supply a greeting bucket of "Cow candy". Beautiful walks, parks, and ATV trails surround our paved access right to the driveway. Explore!

Other things to note
Nearby Branford, Florida is our "market town" with good restaurants, services, a health club, and general shopping. It's a 10 minute drive from the Ranch. It also hosts "Ivey park" at a lovely spring, picnic tables, boat ramp, and other attributes. Our nearby public boat ramp is also a county park-3 miles.
