I stayed in the main building, an old inn that's elegantly maintained and full of character. The grounds are quite nice, and the pool-- while too small for swimming laps-- is perfect for a cooling dip. The included breakfast is basic but just fine for me. A cold buffet with bagels, bread, oatmeal packets, yogurt and some fruit. Along with... More

Two couples stopped for lunch on a visit to Pine Island. It was quite busy and we had no reservation, but we were seated after a short wait. A large patio room overlooking the waterfront was full but we were happy with a table in a small room off the bar. The restaurant occupies the first floor of an old... More

A lovely lodge with an excellent staff. This is not a "beach resort"! This is where you go to unwind and relax. There is a small pool and the grounds around the lodge are beautiful. Its nice to sit near the waterfront and watch the boats and pelicans while the gulf breezes rustle the palm trees. The lodge itself is... More

Room #2 in the separate building is where we stayed and we loved the balcony and the view! There is light boat traffic to watch in the morning as the fishing boats leave through the channel in front of you and return in the late afternoon. There is a view of the pool and a few palm trees surround the... More

First of all, Tarpon Lodge is in a lovely setting, surrounded by trees and water. We started in the bar with excellent drinks and delicious appetizers offered by a courteous staff. We then proceeded to the restaurant and had a wonderful dinner. There is also an interesting cultural site next door,

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at Tarpon Lodge. We were in room #1 in the separate building. This is a great room as you have a balcony with seating on two sides. The room was comfortable and clean. The view was amazing. The room had a small refrigerator which was nice but we would have liked to also... More

We came from France to get married near Sanibel and spent two nights at the Tarpon lodge. It was simply magical. People were lovely and the cottage we lived in was gorgeous. We are looking forward to come back one day.

The Tarpon Lodge is right on the water on Pine Island. It's a very rustic, natural setting and is off the beaten path. The property has wide green lawns and lots of swaying palm trees. There are docks where boaters can dock when they stay at the Lodge. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful. They gave us... More

We decided last minute to go somewhere for New Year's . We were lucky to get the last room available in the Lodge. The room was spacious, comfy and clean, as was on our last trip here. We had a delicious dinner and drinks at the Lodge restaurant New Years Eve. We would highly recommend this visit.

The Tarpon Lodge was a perfect getaway. My husband and I stayed in the Sanibel Room in the main lodge. It was perfect for two! The room had a very comfortable king bed, a separate area for the sink and the toilet/shower was on the other side of the room. There was a large flat screen t.v. in the room,... More
