We have been visiting and staying here for the last 6 years on an annual basis. We always have a great time which is why we always renew our cabin for the next year when we checkout. Kevin and Jessica the owners are on site and make sure all the guests feel at home. Their staff is very friendly and... More

This place is total perfection from the beautiful cabins to the wonderful sunsets. We found it quite by happy accident while we were looking for places to stay for future visits to the area. They happened to have a cancellation and had a cabin open for one night. Everyone was great and the accommodations were immaculate and very comfortable. We... More

We were referred to Welaka Lodge & Resort by family members who had raved about the location, so we just had to try it for ourselves! We booked a 3-day weekend in the Poolside cabin #23, and honestly, we coulnd't have been any more impressed, the cabin felt like it came out of a Southern Living magazine!! We also loved... More

We spent four nights in a "cottage" overlooking the river in January, 2015. It was a quiet, relaxing vacation from the brutal cold of Maine, and we could not have been more pleased. The cottage was beyond well-equipped and immaculately clean. It was furnished like a private home with excellent appliances (a convection oven AND a conventional oven, and stove... More

Thank you for your lovely review of our property! We all enjoyed having you as our guests this past week. We wish you could have stayed away from the cold north for even longer, but know you had to return to work. Maybe you can arrange for at least a week next time! We appreciate your taking the time to... More

Welaka Lodge is perfect for the quiet getaway. I took my mom for the weekend for her birthday. B/c we lived in Welaka when I was a kid, she has wanted to go back for a long time. The cabin was amazing. It had everything you would need except your food. The bed and the foldout loveseat were extremely comfortable.... More

We loved our visit. We met friends there who were staying in their RV. The cabin was wonderful, very comfortable and beautiful. Our dog loved watching the squirrels. We enjoyed sitting on the dock or on our front porch. We were so relaxed. We fished Dunn's Creek. We saw an eagle and an aligator. It felt as if we stepped... More

We stayed in the one bedroom loft unit at this beautiful resort. The grounds are gorgeous with large live oaks and Spanish moss situated right on the St. Johns River. The unit was very tastefully decorated and very well equipped with our own personal hot tub on a large back deck. The pool area was great with comfortable chairs and... More

Not the camping cabin usually found with a RV park. It was beautifully designed & decorated. Nothing was missing. We just walked in & started enjoying our vacation. The cabin not only met ADA regulations but exceeded my personal needs. Kevin, Jessica & staff were the greatest. Someone was always available to answer a question. They exceeded the definition of...
