Picnic Lunch at the Back Porch at the Barn

Far from Fancy, but a nice, easy dining experience, enjoy the wrap around porch under the trees and on the lake. The farmhouse is old, weathered and rambling, but you are greeted warmly and made to feel welcome. Once seated at your table, you waitress or waiter explains the menu. The best bargain and a fun option is the picnic basket lunch, soup, salad, sandwich and dessert. Plenty of offerings for everyone, even for gluten free and vegetarian folks. You can dine in the farmhouse or choose to dine on the deck, both options are nice. Indoor dining is adorable and outdoor dining on the raised deck is lovely as you have a view of the pond and the lovely trees overhanging the property. The day we dined on the deck the outside temperatures were in the 90’s but the deck temperature was comfortable. The deck is covered, fans were moving the air, and we had a nice, safe lunch in the fresh air while enjoying the pond view. We even had a gator rise to the top of the pond and float by while we were dining. The barn also offers beer and wine in addition to soft drinks and tea. After lunch, we shopped in the garden store, it too is adorable, and wandered thru the Stable Home Décor Shop. The barn antique store closes every summer for a few months but in October, when the owners return with new old merchandise, be prepared to be amazed at the variety of beautiful, interesting, and unusual antiques for sale. Kick back and relax this is Old Time Florida and a nice get away from the usual. A nice spot to spend the afternoon away from it all.
