The Lodge at Lightsey Family Ranch


The lodge

Located on 2,000 acres of Florida bays, pines, palmettos, and oaks, outside the small town of Lake Placid, the Lightsey Family Ranch is the perfect setting for a romantic and rustic wedding. This venue features beautiful, natural landscape for an outdoor ceremony, as well as versatile indoor and outdoor space for a reception. Our lodge features room for up to 28 guests, a large lobby with a true old Florida feel, and a fully equipped professional kitchen.


Lightsey Family Ranch boasts some of the best hunting land in south Florida. Owner and lifelong hunter, Lee Lightsey, welcomes you to one-of-a-kind hunting experiences, including wild hog, quail, turkey, deer, and gator hunts. After a successful day of hunting, enjoy a stay at the Lodge. Rest in one of the 10 guest rooms, relax with a quiet moment on the wraparound porch or by an open fire, and feast on a fare prepared by our in house chef.  Other amenities include internet, and satellite tv.    You are sure to enjoy your time at this old Florida hunting ranch!
