“Great place.. Just along for the Ride...”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Well as the only Girl in the family I often find myself just tagging along for the ride if not i would not get to spend much time with my family....I enjoyed my stay here.. As a fishman's wife and mother I have found myself in some real fishing camp dives.. This is actually very nice and clean with plenty of room to move. It is not the Ritz Carlton but our room #13 was open and had a nice kitchen with everything as far as pots, pans and plates, utensils etc..when needed to make all our meals.. Not only do they have a pool but a very nice large outdoor area to socialize and put your fish on one of the grills. after a day of fishing if we wanted to go out we would could either walk or a very short drive to several restaurants right down the street. (note they are kinda pricey). We actually enjoyed saying at the lodge and cooking and socializing with the other guests than our night out at one of the local restaurants.. There is a walmart and publix within a mile so if you want to grocery shop when you get there there are plenty of options. I would have given it a 5 as far as fishing lodges goes if it was not for the Dock.. We felt our boat was very safe and secure in this area but the Dock was a bit of a challenge as the management advised us it was in the process of upgrades... It was a bit of a challenge getting in and out of the boat.. There were no ladders and the boat sat very low even in high tide so you basically had to have some primate skills to get in/out of your boat so if you have any physical disabilities this may be a challenge. Otherwise i would say this is a perfect place to stay and the owners/managers were just the nicest people and very accommodating and welcoming!

This was our second visit to Sportsman's Lodge. Like our first visit last year, the accommodations were excellent. Our room was clean (spotless, actually) and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped - all we had to do was bring in our food. The large fridge had plenty of room, even for an Easter ham, two gallons of milk, a gallon of fruit punch, .... - well, you get the picture. We had the pool to ourselves, saw dolphins from the dock, and just had a great time.

Our review last year said we'd be back. Well, we did go back, and we'll do it again!

I have been to the Sportsmans Lodge for the past 3 years now, and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Sebastian. Beautiful sunrises, beautiful river and a very homey atmosphere that Janet and Bruno create fot their guests. Across the street is the park and a very nice river walk for the exercisers. You can walk to most every restaurant and Happy Hour , the Sportsman`s Lodge is very conveniently located and definitely caters to the fishermen and non fisherman alike. I will be coming back year after year if I am able to. I love it here.

We have been returning to The Sportsman Lodge for 3 years now.....the place is just great! Rooms are exceptionally clean, service is friendly and efficient, and our boat is docked right there!....We just love it here! Right on the River and walking distance to the park....it is by far our favorite place to go for a relaxing getaway vacation! It has become a tradition now...a few families returning each year and spending a great week together!

Room Tip: Room #1...waking up in the morning and sipping coffee on your private porch looking out at the River...

We have been coming here for 7+ years, and absolutely LOVE it! We bring our kayaks and are able to launch them from the easily accessible beach area. We love the sunrises and the morning kayak rides with the dolphins. The owners are wonderful, friendly, and very accommodating. Sportsman's Lodge is a wonderful area for the outdoorsy type people. Although we do not fish, there is a wonderful dock from which you can fish. The rooms are pet friendly and always clean when we arrive. There is even a great park nearby where we walk our dogs daily. We are very thankful for the kitchen where we are able to save some money and cook our own meals some nights. You would have a wonderful time at the Sportsman's Lodge.
Dan and Darcie :-)

Magnificent location, Sebastian's Sportsman Lodge is within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, and a city park that hosts monthly activities like art shows and concerts. Grounds are well kept and clean. Owners are friendly and are always on call. Dogs are welcomed at this hotel and also at the nearby park. Which was a blessing for us being a dog loving family. After being on the river all day fishing, visiting the Sebastian Inlet, or island hopping it is nice to just take a dip in the beautiful crystal clear pool. Tired and you don't want to eat out then use the outside pavillon to BBQ and mingle with the other guests. Get up early so you can catch the colorful sun rises, the very active birds catching their tasty breakfast of mullet, and the graceful dolphins as they surface for a breath of air. We will be back!

Room Tip: We love rooms 1 and 14. You can view the river from those rooms.
