Peaceful
Just what we needed! Sad we couldnt stay longer, also sad we forgot our home-made peanut butter pie! It was so good! Great hosts made us feel special & right at home. It was quiet and peaceful, and a beautiful property! Especially around the pond. :) It rained quite a bit during our stay and the cabin was very cozy and comfortable for those times. Honestly no complaints and definitely will stay again.

The entire place was a blast!!! Each cabin looked cool. Was very easy to find off the main road. The friendly cats had to be the best part. Tiger was great!!! The showers were awesome too. Hot water was perfect. Would definitely come again, and 100% recommend this place for couples or families!

Amazing location and beautiful spot
Griffin Ranch was amazing! Such a beautiful place super close to Ocala National. Carl was amazing to say the least. Amazing hospitality all around! There’s a fire pit outback, a grill, everything to cook with and prepare a home cooked meal. The cats were super friendly as well as the horses on-site. There’s also a small grocer very close by that has local grass fed steaks that are amazing!! I throughly enjoyed my stay at The Griffin Ranch and will most certainly be returning!

Great host located near Nat. Forest
Carl was an absolutely lovely host. He was so accommodating — even letting us plug in our electric vehicle! He gave us great recommendations for local places to check out and was so welcoming. The ranch is located a convenient drive from the National Forest and from multiple natural springs, perfect for day trips.

Birthday Getaway
Our vacation at the Griffin Ranch was very relaxing. We told Carl and Terry were kind and attentive hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed through the whole stay. We told them that we were coming out for my birthday weekend and to get a break away from the kids. When we arrived they had two full wine glasses, the bottle of wine, birthday ballons, and a box of chocolates for my birthday. They had the cabin ready and waiting for us. We had the historic cottage, its 150 years old, and it was very comfortable for two people. They allowed us to roam their property to go fishing and/or hiking. Their ranch worker told us about a few places in the area where we could go to do different things. We had a wonderful time at their ranch and definitely got the relaxation we needed to recharge. I would recommend the Griffin Ranch to anyone who is in need of a vacation.

Can't say enough good things about Griffin Ranch. Carl and Terry are wonderful hosts and their campsites, tiny houses, cabins and airstream trailers are all beautiful and well thought out. The location is perfect for day trips to Silver Springs, Salt Springs or any of the other waterways and hikes in the area.

The perfect getaway!
The Griffin’s ranch was the perfect getaway for my girlfriend and I, Carl and Terri really know how to treat their guests! Made us feel right at home the entire time we stayed. They’re absolutely beautiful people who really care. Our cabin was so cozy and perfectly decorated, we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay including a basket with yummy snacks! We enjoyed playing board games, watching movies, and showering in the shower house. There’s plenty of wildlife, if you are a bird lover you are in for a treat! We are definitely planning on coming again for many years to come))

Great Stay
Carl and Terry are great hosts! My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Cottage cabin, I was very impressed by the bath tub inside. The property is well maintained, we had some issues with water, but Carl quickly resolved the issue. Highly recommend to choose The Griffin Ranch as the place to spend your holidays!

Set among 30 acres, Griffin Ranch has so many different spots to experience. From cabins to tent campsites - you can carve out pretty much any experience you are looking for. Carl, your host, is busy creating more and more fun to have on his property out in the country (including setting up a handful of vintage Airstream), only 30 minutes from Ocala. It’s close to Salt Springs Recreation Area (only 15 miles up the same road) where you can snorkel for free among fish, crabs, and a natural spring of turquoise water that hovers at 72 degrees year round. Griffin Ranch has one and two bedroom cottages to rent and pretty much anywhere that’s level you want to pitch your tent or camper van (no hookups). The property has several ponds for your to put in your kayak or cast your fishing rod. We stayed in a tiny one bedroom cabin that had a clawfoot tub to soak it! Also in our cabin, was a small fridge, coffee pot, microwave and desk to work at. If you prefer a stand up shower, there is a bathhouse set up in the middle of the cabins that has a double shower, wooden floors, shampoo and conditioner, and hot water with great pressure. This is what we used after going for a run on the country road that leads out of the back of the property. Several of the cabins are close to a busy road, so you may want to bring a pair of earplugs if you need quiet to sleep. Depending on the crowd or occasion, Griffin Ranch also has a Cafe that can serve homestyle meals for you. The night we were there, we enjoyed a dinner with grilled steak, potatoes, salad, bread pudding with ice cream, beer, and Irish whiskey for St. Patrick’s Day. We shared space in the cafe with a family from France, locals of Florida, and us! If animals are your jam, there are 7 horses on the property that will set you at ease just by walking over to there corral. There were also several guests on the property with dogs, which made our day! We highly recommend staying at this property. There is so much to see, as there are so many projects going on with the effort to create a better and more varied experience for guests.
