Set in the horse country of Central Florida, about an hour and a half northwest of Orlando and less than a hour from the West Coast of Florida, the ranch is spread out over 50+ acres and has 2 barns, the main house and several fields that are normally dotted with horses, chickens or guinea fowl at any given moment.
Our current AirBnB is an apartment in Barn B at Happy Acres Ranch, known as Happy Trails Lodge. From a door in our kitchen, we can walk into the stables and see the horses who call Happy Acres home.
During the day and sometimes at night, you can hear a horse neigh or whiny softly. You can also hear the guinea fowl cackling during the evening.
The apartment is a one bedroom, one bath, though there is a second king bed separated off from the living room by a desk and shelving. A large flat screen tv faces the couch, which is also a sleeper sofa. Only the two windows in the apartment, but they let in plenty of light and face out at the paddocks. Full kitchen with washer and dryer complete the apartment.
They give trail rides and lessons.
Dunnellon is close to Ocala, another major city in Florida, and close to the coast, giving us plenty to do while we’re here.
