Welaka Lodge and Resort is a very quiet resort with beautiful cabins, camping, pool, river and marina. In some of the cabins on the back porch they have hot tubs. If you want to get away from it all this is the place.

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
