The Farmhouse is the original home of the orange grove owners before us. Completely restored and renovated, we now get to open our doors to host guests in this gorgeous space with so much Old Florida history!

You'll be staying right on-site of Wonderfield Farm and Grove (originally Banes Grove) which is 66-acres of orange groves, idyllic cypress swamps, pastureland, and more! Your backyard is 10,000 acres of nature preserve. Walk our waterfront trails, and spend time in nature.

The Space: The original farmhouse, recently restored and renovated!

You will have this entire home to enjoy! Equipped with two, large screen porches, a beautiful living room to enjoy, and a full kitchen.

Your backyard will be 66-acres of gorgeous Old Florida land. We are an "agritourism" area which means we are an active farm, that invites guest to come and experience our space. Focused on food production, we do our best to cultivate our land using permaculture principles, sustainable action, and regenerative practices.

Your stay helps fund our farm, and keeps us growing! Thank you!

Guest Access: You are sure to get the "Old Florida" experience here at Wonderfield Farm & Grove. Located on a retired orange grove, next to a spring-fed river, among century-old cypress trees.

The Farmhouse is located right on the property, adjacent to a traditional neighborhood setting Gobbler Drive, but you will have access to the entire property to get away from it all!

*Know that the farmhouse is not very secluded, it is setback off of Gobbler Drive, but your backyard is our 66-acre property that is a wilderness of natural beauty.

Our property is just minutes away from some of the most famous springs in Florida, such as Crystal River Springs, Rainbow River Springs, Homosassa Springs, just to name a few! Besides spending a day snorkeling among the manatees, you can find plenty of other outdoor activities to do - canoeing, kayaking, and hiking - all right here on the property or just a drive away.

There is a public boat ramp to access the Floral City Chain of Lakes just down the road (.25 miles away) if you plan on bringing a boat. You may park your boat, trailer, RV, on the property, no problem.

Also, there's a very nice market and deli down the road next to the boat ramp for basic needs, drinks, and they make some great sandwiches too!

During season (November - April) free to harvest some citrus during your stay! We love to share our abundance and know there are few things like harvesting your own food. Enjoy as breakfast, a snack, or squeeze your own orange juice! Please only harvest an amount that you'd be able to consume in a day.

Wonderfieldfarm is absolutely magical. The property is gigantic and there is so much beauty. From waking up to the sound of roosters to seeing the morning sunlight peak through the moss covered old old oak and magnolia trees to watching cows in the wild. One cow ran towards us, it was so cute and happy. We spend a day at Rainbow Springs which is less than 45 minutes away from Wonderfieldfarm. Everyone was super nice and we will definitely be back. Such a nice weekend escape and can’t wait to experience another season there.

We stayed in the farmhouse and had a wonderful time! We slept well, beds clean and comfy. Great a/c. Pleasantly surprised with 2 full bathrooms. Kitchen was great, cooked breakfast both mornings. We enjoyed walking the property and visiting with the cows. The best part of the house, in my opinion, is the two screened in porches. One side had a comfy couch where we streamed Mass (internet was great). The other had a huge table (and comfy couch) where we enjoyed our evening meals. Kudos to the caretaker who had lit tiki torches outside for us both nights and had a fire in the fire pit going for us the 1st night, thanks so much. We really liked it here. We do not like the airboats, they are very loud and really disturb the peace. We did not notice them after 10 pm nor early morning though. We really love this area of FLorida. Boondocks a door or two down looked to have yummy sandwiches but we didn’t try them. We love Inverness & Homosassa. All the people with whom we interacted were amazingly friendly. The clubhouse (?) area looked great, I bet it’s beautifully decorated if you have a party, meal, or shower. We noticed a screened in porch building down by the water. Definitely rent that if you like camping, it was really cool, complete with bath house. We did feel mosquitoes. Overall, this farm is definitely worth it and we’d highly recommend it.

Just what I was looking for! Quiet retreat amongst the farm animals and woods, just what I was looking for. My dogs loved exploring and meeting the cows.

Wonderfield Farm was a cherry on top of our week long trip to Florida. We were tired of the hustle and bustle of Orlando and the quietness and serenity of the farm was exactly what we needed.

Tara was very welcoming and responded promptly to our questions on Hipcamp chat. She doesn’t stay on the farm full time, but we met some of the other people who work there tending to the animals and taking care of the garden.

The house was spacious with a large living room, a bedroom with two comfy queen size beds and a shower. There is an additional bathroom with the Tun next to the kitchen. The kitchen was my favorite place! Bright, newly renovated, with quality appliances and kitchenware and a cool bar we used for eating breakfast and writing.

There are also two screen patios: one with a large dining table and a grill and another with a sofa and a fire pit.

We loved waking up to the sounds of nature and the roosters. Our daughter was thrilled to meet the chickens, the ducks, the piglets and of cause the cows. It was super fun to fed them oranges!

We walked through the garden, took the nature walk through the property and picked oranges from the trees and from the ground. What a neat experience!

The farm is very authentic and is surrounded by a creek and marshes. We didn’t see any snakes or gators, but quite a few lizards, frogs and furry caterpillars.

Tara had provided plenty of information about places to explore nearby, dining etc.

We loved our experience of staying the restored Farmhouse on an actual working farm. The house was decorated nicely and included everything we needed for our stay. One of our favorite experiences was walking on the trail labeled clearly along the waterway. Plus, Floral City was near several nice State Parks like Crystal River and Homasassa Springs

Well marked trail on beautiful Farmhouse property

What a lovely stay! The Farmhouse is nestled on Tara’s beautiful property surrounded by Spanish moss, citrus trees, and the most delightful farm friends. Everything my family needed was available, there was so much to do on property, and our place was so adorable with all the citrus decor! Mike and Hannah were on property and were very helpful. We were even offered fresh orange juice and eggs! I can’t express how happy I was with my stay. Thank you for hosting us, Tara!
