Dark Horse Farm is within 5 minutes of Orlando-Sanford airport. You’ll love the ambiance. It is a small horse farm with views of pastures and woods. Watch the horses graze, or visit them in the barn. They are all friendly and love a treat of carrots. You may catch a glimpse of the bald eagle family, their nest is across from the driveway. Listen to the crickets and frogs at night with a nightcap on the porch. It's great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
You will have a modern and tastefully decorated room with large windows and views of our horse pasture. Television with streaming movie service is included. Bathroom is private and clean.
Guests can access a living room, kitchen, laundry, and screened in porch. We encourage relaxing on the porch with your coffee to watch the birds and horses grazing.
Interaction with guests
I will be available evenings and mornings for any assistance or tips on the area you may need.

Kayaking, air boating, hiking, and fine dining are all in the local Sanford area. Historic Downtown Sanford on the St. John's River captures the feel of the early 1900's with its delightful shops and eateries.

I really enjoy my home and love to share my space with others. I try to make it private, warm and inviting so you will feel at home when you walk in the door. I am originally from the northeast where I went to college and received my BA. I now counsel students on their college enrollment and future careers. My greatest passion and love is horses. I compete with my Fell pony in a little known equestrian sport called "Combined Driving", which also allows me to meet people from all over North America. I love ethnic food and can recommend some good restaurants in our Sanford Downtown. I mostly enjoy meeting new people!
