Referred to as "North Florida's Castle", this 1930's lodge will not disappoint. The lodge's Spanish influenced architecture fits in beautifully amongst the surrounding forest. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The grand entrance with its large wood burning fireplace invites you to relax and enjoy a by gone era. There is a pianist on Friday and Saturday evenings. Justine checked us... More

The Lodge at Wakulla Springs was built in 1939 and it seems that some things haven’t changed since then. We loved our stay which was enhanced by the quirky joys of the place and time. We loved seeing the springs at all hours of the day, trees draped with Spanish moss, fawns jumping across the lawn through the morning fog,... More

We had a delightful stay at the Lodge, which we found vastly improved since our previous stay a few years back. The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful. Best of all, the restaurant served excellent dinners and breakfasts, though you should be aware that the service is a bit slow. But the whole atmosphere is... More

This is an awesome old 1930s property. It was built with the utmost care, using the best materials available at the time. Even the cranks to open the windows appear to be original - and completely functional. The room had no television, that was a good thing. Instead, there were people, sitting around the fireplace in the lobby, actually having... More

The lodge is as lovely as the pictures on the website and the food in the restaurant is excellent. Grounds and lodge are beautifully maintained. Definitely worth paying extra for room facing the Springs. Most wonderful part is the peace and quite and tranquil view of the springs

TL;DR - super friendly people, beautiful 1930s Spanish influenced architecture (look at the ceiling in the hall and verandah) more wildlife than you can count and a majestic peaceful setting - but go outside peak summer season as I can imagine it's a whole different experience then! We happened by Wakulla Springs by accident - a very happy accident as... More

When I arrived I wasn't sure I wanted to stay the full 2 days that I had booked, but when I read the hotel history pamphlet (ask for one at check in) I changed my mind. There are NO TVs in the room but it forces you to relax and disconnect for a few days. They do have FREE WiFi... More

I visited the park twice during my winter trip to Alligator Point. The temperature definitely affected the gator sightings (so check the temp if you're going for the alligators). Otherwise both trips were wonderful. We spotted 16 different species of birds! Beautiful ibis, osprey, kingfisher.... The boat trip on the river was very relaxing and comfortable. The captains were friendly... More

Karla was a great waitress, the food was good, the lodge is gorgeous. Updates are being done to make the lodge more comfortable. The rooms are old fashioned and the bathrooms are pure marble. The shower faucets are a little weird but hot water is plentiful.

Somewhat dated but comfortable and very clean. Beautiful old lodge, spacious and interesting. Lighting barely sufficient? The check-in with Justine was efficient and very friendly. She behaved as a true caring hostess throughout the evening. Checkout with another woman the next morning was handled carelessly and almost rudely.
