At Creek Ranch, you get neither — but you will get a one-of-a-kind experience. by Alisson clark Creek Ranch may be close to Orlando’s theme parks, but the characters you’ll find here aren’t from the world of Disney.

Black grew up visiting his grandparents here, spending summers and holidays helping out with ranch work, fishing, and exploring the idyllic estate. In 2010, Jim opened the lakefront ranch, including its luxurious main house and a historic cabin, to guests looking for a very different type of Florida vacation. december 2012 photos courtesy of creek ranch 25
