WHERE TIME IS NOT THE MASTER OF THE GAME…YOU ARE!
PEAK SEASON: OCTOBER THRU DECEMBER AMENITIES: FLY FISHING SCHOOL, LUXURIOUS LODGING, CORPORATE RETREATS
We’re passionate about quail hunting here. With 19 carefully managed fields spread across 27,000 acres, our coveys experience minimal pressure and the birds fly extremely well. Our world-class pointers run with grace and style before locking on a covey, and our eager retrievers happily fetch the birds you shoot. We have 15 jeeps lined up to take you on a quail hunt like none you’ve ever experienced.
If you enjoy hunting other species, Gilchrist has abundant whitetail deer to chase in the fall, with rifle, archery or muzzleloader seasons. Call up one of our hard-gobbling Osceola turkeys in the spring. Or for something truly unique, hunt something with teeth; like one of our wild boars, or even a Florida gator.
Executive chef Jenae Christiansen and her team are dedicated to making dining one of the highlights of your Gilchrist experience. Custom-prepared entrees and appetizers made from wild game are always a highlight and the results from Chef Jenae’s diverse training and expertise guarantees you’ll rave about every meal, whether the menu is based on local or exotic fare.
Our wine cellar is well-stocked with traditional favorites and classic bottles, as well as offerings from exciting new vineyards, both foreign and domestic. The executive bar at Gilchrist is a place to sit, relax, and enjoy a top-shelf cocktail prepared by our expert mixologist.
