Our Cabins are Steeped in History and Politics
Lawton ‘Walking Lawton’ Chiles, as he was known for walking 1000 miles across Florida to earn a U.S. Senate seat, hosted many political events in these cabins. He retreated to Jubilee often to recharge from the duties as Governor of Florida in these beautiful woods and fields.
Natural wonders are ever present from beautiful lakes and creeks to groves of Live Oak and Long Leaf Pine. Hiking and biking trails weave through the hundreds of acres here. Gopher Tortoises, squirrels, bobcats, wild turkey and deer share the property along with a myriad of winged wonders like hawks, owls and herons. Even the drive here is tranquil through canopy roads and cathedral oaks, weaving through Red Hills Plantations. Onsite, you can canoe the lake, bike through miles of woods trails, hike, picnic by one of the lakes, and go organic blueberry or pear picking in season. We can arrange horses if you would enjoy riding while on the plantation.
