Why Beth & Glenn Tebbe chose Disney / Orlando

Poppy's Preserve has been in our family since 1991 and has always been Poppy's favorite place. Although he no longer lives at the ranch, he loved showcasing his home to visitors and sharing the land with others and with animals. It makes us smile to be able to share this unique property with other nature lovers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Poppy's Preserve is truly a unique vacation home nestled amidst a nature preserve. Our families thoroughly enjoyed the stay here and the kids never wanted to get away from the pool. Emily (the barn manager) was very helpful and gave us useful tips to get around. We will highly recommend this place to other friends and we hope to be back and spend a longer vacation at Poppy's Preserve soon! Best regards and thank you from our family from Atlanta, GA and India.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in cities my whole life, there is nothing better than waking up every morning to horses grazing 20 feet from the backdoor. I stayed here on a work trip with a team of people for a little over two weeks. The place was perfectly clean, quiet, and peaceful. Beth was attentive to every question and flexible with check in and out times. I recommend to anyone!

Beautiful Property with Privacy

  • 5 of 5

Poppy's Preserve is a beautiful piece of property with real privacy. The house is clean, spacious, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you will need. Beth and Glenn were both pleasant and easy to work with. There was plenty of wildlife on the property including deer, lizards and various birds. The horses kept on the property were very friendly, as was Emily who came out to take care of the horses daily. Emily allowed the children to ride the horses and they all had a wonderful time. The beaches are close by, as are Disney and Cape Canaveral. Fishing and charter boats are plentiful, recommend taking one of the many evening shark fishing trips. Thank you again, to Beth and Glenn, for sharing their property we really enjoyed our visit!

Personal Nature Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great property with an abundance of outdoor recreational activities. Great for all ages! Access to all attractions but far enough to feel secluded. Animals in the property are friendly. The swimming pool was private and beautiful. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed to make our meals. Clean linens, and the beds are comfy. I don't know where else you can: ride horses, go swimming, catch lizards, feed deer, ride a golf cart around the pond, go fishing and drive to the beach if you want, all in one day! However if you want to sit and relax and do nothing, this is also the place for you! You can arrange a horse back ride with Emily and Brooke or get private lessons all for a small fee. We went to Midway for an airboat ride through the river plains. Definitely a must-go-to property!

This is a beautiful home in an incredible setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything a vacationing family needs. The kitchen is well stocked. Two colts and a pony roamed free throughout our stay. Several horses were grazing in the field and enjoyed the apples we fed them. A golf cart was available to explore the wooded area. Although we didn't do any fishing in the pond, we enjoyed watching the dears come out each night. The pool was refreshing and clean. Everyone, ranging in age from 3 - 50, had fun!!

Loved it!

We felt welcomed and at home immediately. The pool and horses absolutely made our trip! The convenient location allowed my husband to go fishing on Canaveral and my girls to enjoy Universal. Thank you, Beth and Glenn!
