Location + Surroundings

Centrally located between the Atlantic and Gulf beaches, this property lies within Polk County, Florida, approximately one hour South of Orlando. This beautiful site was originally built in the 1960s by Gulf American Corp. (GAC), what was then one of the largest land developers in the state of Florida, as the center-piece of a huge proposed development in the area. By 1971, the property featured a large motel, Western-style saloon and café, swimming pool, airstrip, rodeo and trap & skeet range. Nowadays, this property has evolved into the largest dude ranch east of the Mississippi. It lies on 1,700 beautiful acres and is surrounded on all sides by approximately 400,000 acres of state and federally protected wetlands.
