“Superb view and accommodations!”
Reviewed 31 May 2010

We live in south florida on the Indian River, palm trees and great sunsets and sunrises! However, for the feeling of an old florida get away the west cabin on the south boundary of the property is like an old florida feeling. We have been up three times and it can't be beat for view, comfort and privacy. Take your own groceries or look for some out of the way places to dine, but the grill, hot tub and serenity on a late afternoon, cooking on the grill is tops. Great to view the site on Google Earth and see the progress of the development. We were there before the poll and the RV sites, so we can claim rights as "original" fans. Well done to the owners!

The owners will do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. Be sure to attend the Sunday dock parties. Enjoy watching the sunset while in your own private hot tub.

Our cabin was a delight! Clean, comfortable and remarkably well stocked. We had a very enjoyable visit and enjoyed the water and fishing with our boat. Can't say enough about the Lodge- we will definitely return and stay longer!!

The best lodge on the St.Johns River, and one can just image those days with the steamboats carrying timber and citrus to Jacksonville. Fully restored and modern cottages with outstanding beds,linens, kitchens, baths, and an large hot tube with each. Jessica the owner has created a masterpiece of a lodge. Heated swimming pool, full dock facilities and a bar-b-que riverside Sunday. And they now have cute pet rabbits of every color roaming the two acre lodge/campground. A secret oasis, not to be missed. One great place for a large family reunion.

This is a great place, the cabins will surprise you by how nice they are when you enter them. Great beds, fireplaces, hot tubs, and full kitchens are the norm in these cabins. You are right on the St John's River and can rent a boat from Welaka Charters for the day and have a nice trip on the river.

Photographers will love the place, there is plenty of wildlife close by, especially by boat. Bring your fishing pole because it's also the Bass Capital.

If you want relaxation, peace and quiet, and just a nice time, this is the place to go.

  • Liked — The bed and sheets were way above average
  • Disliked — Our cabin was an open floor plan so there was no bedroom seperate from the rest of the cabin
