After well over a year of renovations since Hurricane Irma swept through in September 2017, the Peace River Valley Ranch is once again welcoming guests!
The Peace River Valley Ranch offers over a square mile of 'Old Florida' property for you to explore and over a mile of frontage on the Peace River. There are miles of well-maintained trails to walk, bike or drive on. Two canoes and two kayaks are available for your use, all included in the rental rate. We own the land on both sides of the Peace River, adding to the sense of privacy. When you enter through the front gate, you will pass our 'Jeep Dock' where we keep our vehicles, and then our barn and event area behind it with half a dozen picnic tables under cover from the weather. Down the road about a mile is the 'River House' located directly on the Peace River. It has two bedrooms with king beds and a loft above the living room with two twins, as well as two screen porches, an expansive deck looking over the river and a fire pit. The River House is comfortably furnished and includes modern amenities like flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi and a large kitchen with granite counter-tops and new appliances. Our "Original Cabin" is located directly behind the River House and it will accommodate two guests in a king bed. This building was greatly improved after Hurricane Irma and it now has a large screen porch out back, central air-conditioning and a luxurious shower. The 'Lodge' is located about 1/4 mile from the River House. It has four bedrooms and sleeps eight. Each bedroom is equipped with its own restroom and a small screen porch with a claw-foot tub facing into the woods.
There is no additional rental charge for the use of the Original Cabin or the Lodge--only the cleaning fee varies. We also have an area for large gatherings near the barn with a covered area and picnic tables underneath that provide seating for over fifty people. We have hosted quite a few weddings already and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss having yours here (an event fee of $500 applies to weddings and other events with more than 50 people, and we limit larger gatherings during the wetter months of the year to lessen the impact on the property).
If you have horses, you are welcome to bring them with you. We do not supply equestrian equipment, but we do have stalls available in our barn and plenty of room for your trailer. RV's are welcome too. No matter the size of your party, you will have exclusive use of The Peace River Valley Ranch during your stay--our other accommodations will be left vacant. Please note, guests are welcome to use our shooting range, but NO HUNTING IS ALLOWED. Please note that we are located approximately one hour and fifteen minutes from Disney World and about one hour and forty minutes from Downtown Orlando.
