The Grand Oaks is one of Florida’s hidden gems. It is called a resort, but it is far more than that. It's a scenic wonderland consisting of 400 acres of rolling hills and picturesque forest. The Grand Oaks contains the world’s largest private collection of antique carriages and equine artifacts, a spa, a deli and a market. It also features moonlight hayrides, driving competitions, concerts, fly fishing and so much more!
The Grand Oaks is a prime venue for weddings. They offer the grace and elegance of traditional Southern hospitality with breathtaking outdoor settings. The landscape is defined by still ponds, vast meadows, white fences, arching arbors, galloping horses, and antique carriages. Over ten antique carriages are available for hire including the Golden Carriage, built in 1840 for the Emperor of Austria.
The Carriage Museum offers a delightful and educational look back in time with over 160 European and American Carriages. These include an Armbruster Dress Chariot, an English Omnibus, a horse-drawn fire fighting apparatus, a World War I supply wagon, the colorful and ornate Sicilian Caretta, and a Dutch Tikker.
Whether you come for a wedding, reunion, carriage ride, the museum, or simply to soak up the beautiful surroundings, you will enjoy every second! The friendly staff and docents are eager to share the magic of this place with you!
