At Rooterville, we believe that animals just make life better. They’re compassionate, cuddly, humorous, and fun to be around. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could vacation with some, even if they weren’t your own?
Actually, these six Airbnb properties in Florida let you do just that in style. From horses to goats to wooly alpacas that love to nuzzle you for treats, you’ll find an ideal property for your getaway in the list below. Check them out and then book your reservation!
Glamping with Alpacas
Perhaps the most iconic experience on our list, Glamping with Alpacas puts you in a luxury tent on an actual farm. You also get to rent the entire farm property – you won’t share it with other guests the way some other properties work.
The listing is for two guests, and you’ll have a one-bedroom, one-bath canvas tent with a spacious, covered front porch, and all the creature comforts that you crave. The tent even comes with air conditioning, and there’s a glorious firepit with loungers right outside where you can relax and enjoy the evenings. The alpacas that call the property home roam freely and will keep you and your pets company. Make sure you have some treats handy to feed them when they come around!
Ocala’s Horse Country
Ok, so this property doesn’t really fall into the “glamping” category. It’s a single-family home set in the rolling hills of Ocala, Florida’s, horse country. You’ll enter through the wrought iron gate and drive up the gravel driveway to reach the guest house. There, you’ll enjoy a fully furnished experience, complete with terracotta tile floors, leather chairs, a dining table for two, a wrought iron staircase that ascends to the upstairs bedroom, and more. You’ll also have use of upstairs porches, handmade silk bathrobes, and even crystal and china for your enjoyment. Note that this property is designed for horse owners to bring their horses, with boarding/stabling right on the property.
The Coop Goat House Farm Stay
If you’re looking for a bit more space so you can stretch out and get comfortable, this getaway option offers an entire home where you can spread out and enjoy yourself. There’s only a single bedroom, with one bath, but it can fit up to three people. The whole place is done up in a farm motif, including roosters and country chic décor. Relax on the front porch, or sleep deeply as the sound of the rain striking the metal roof soothes you. Spend time hiking through the woods, or explore the spacious nearby Lake Talquin. You’ll also find miles of hiking trails in the area, and the property is set right in the state forest, so you can enjoy seclusion. Additionally, the namesake goats will keep you company throughout your stay. Goat House Farm
Seriously, who wouldn’t give it all up to go and live in a treehouse? Ok, maybe that does require that you have a sense of adventure and that you are still in touch with your inner child, but that’s you, then this property cannot be missed! It can sleep two guests, and offers a single bedroom and two bathrooms. It’s also built right up in the trees, with a front port, complete with swing chair and lounging space. Being in a treehouse doesn’t mean sacrificing amenities, though, there’s a coffeemaker and lighting available, as well as air conditioning to keep you comfortable. The property is also a working farm, and you’ll be able to feed the horses from your porch. Best of all, there’s a kangaroo on the farm, too! Get your R&R and mingle with some of nature’s most exotic animals.https://www.hipcamp.com/discover/florida/treehouse-farm
Moonshine Acres Tropical Horse Farm
Perhaps the most luxurious property on our list, Moonshine Acres is a horse farm located in the heart of tropical beauty. The place is incredibly spacious, with enough room for up to six guests. There are two bedrooms, three beds, and a full bathroom for your enjoyment. The home is designed to be bright and airy, with light-colored wood flooring, white walls, and a full kitchen to use during your stay. It’s actually built in a barn for an added touch of rustic charm. If that’s not enough, the barn is set within acreage designated as a horse boarding facility, so you can feed and watch the horses during your stay, no riding allowed, unfortunately. There is a community pool nearby for swimming, you have access to the Blueway Kayak Trail, which spans 190 miles of the Gulf Coast, and there are two bicycles available to use while you explore the area.
Rooterville Animal Sanctuary
Set on 30 beautiful acres, Rooterville is an animal sanctuary in Florida that offers you the chance to enjoy a true glamping experience while you get up close and personal with a wide range of animals, including pot-bellied pigs, cows, farm pigs, chickens, goats, and more. There are even bees if you’re interested in exploring the apiary or indulging in a bit of local honey. In all, you’ll find over 400 animals here, all friendly and excited to meet you! A self-guided tour is free of charge, or you can pay for a private tour given by Rooterville’s founder, Elaine West. In addition to the glamping accommodations, you can also enjoy a traditional B&B experience on the property, and there is space if you’re bringing a camper or RV. Please note that this property does not allow pets due to the presence of other animals.
