We stayed here 3 nights and did 2 of the kayak tours, one guided in the swamp and the other a shuttle to/from the St Mary's river.
We stayed in a deluxe cabin. It was small but very well appointed and lacked for nothing, well, except space. The mini little screen porch was nice but temps were too chilly the nights we were there to sit out. Plus side - no bugs. Cabin had a space heater and that worked well with night time temps down in the 40s.
We did the kayak tour our first full day, it was fascinating but temps so chilly that there wasn't a lot going on critter wise. It was a beautiful, sunny morning however and a very enjoyable experience. Next day we did the St Mary River kayak and that was fabulous. Another beautiful, sunny day, chilly morning but warmer then the previous morning. Easy kayaking and with wonderful views along the river. Fish camps and interesting birds and some little creeks running into it that didn't go far but were still fun to check out. Very much enjoyed our stay here.
Be forewarned however, if you like to eat dinner out and don't want fast or dinner food and don't want to drive a long ways your options are limited. We did stumble upon Tuptim Thai our first night however and enjoyed it immensely. We ate 2 dinners there. It is a surprising little gem.
