Our room was overlooking the Indian River & one couldn't have asked for more!! The sky, birds,& dolphins never stopped keeping us in touch with the natural Florida setting. We were there to celebrate my sister's birthday with a cook out & games galore, and Ed & Joanne couldn't have been more helpful...Thanks Guys!!! We will definitely be back!!

This is my Second year coming to the Ferndale Lodge and like last year I had a Wonderful Time. I took a few Fishing Trips and spent some time wadding in the waters looking for shells. A Kayak ride to explore the Islands is a Must if the waters are calm. (best if done in the early morning). Ed and...

Forget about hi-rise condos, cookie-cutter chain hotels, and communities with gates. If you want to experience the quiet, security, and genuine friendliness of what they call 'Old Florida', then this is the place to go. It doesn't seem as if the Ferndale Lodge could have changed much over the past 50 years or so, and that is a good thing....

Sebastian is a nice place for spending vacation-"Little Paradise". Quiet and peaceful place. And Ferndale Lodge owners are warm-hearted, nice and family oriented people. They take care about property in professional way. We found everything we needed. We will definitely be back:-)

This comfortable, quiet piece of 'old Florida' is a real hidden gem! The owners are extremely accommodating and the weather was terrific. The wide, shady sidewalk was perfect for getting needed exercise and access the nearby produce market or parks and restaurants. The ocean is less than 15 minutes away and the sunrise over Indian River is spectacular. It is...

Just like home, cooking and use of all the equipment needed to make that special meal on stove or grill. Great fresh farm stand in walking distance. Shopping a bargain at local stores, views super, and just what the doctor ordered for the over FIFTY QUIET EXPERIENCE.

We're in our third year for enjoying a relaxing vacation at Ferndale Lodge, Sebastian, FL. Ed and Joanne, the proprietors, are friendly people who do everything possible to make us feel as though we "live there" while we are staying at the lodge. We definitely enjoy the riverview room, not only for the room's layout and the Florida room, but...
