I have been coming to the lodge for over 10 years. We have had family reunions and weekend getaways. We bring our boat down with us to cruise the river and the springs. The owners & staff have always treated us with the utmost respect...More

What a find. We planned a trip on our boat down the St. Johns River and were looking for places to stay. They had great reviews and photos so we decided to try it. The place does look like the photos. These were not cabins...More

stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage by the river. private setting. everything was PERFECT. the only thing I found wrong was the mattress in the master bedroom has long since seen its better days. beside that had a million dollar view. will be back.
