This place remains a wonderful get-away from the Maine cold weather. The kitchen is so well-appointed that it feels like we're borrowing someone's house. Need coffee filters? They're here. A large casserole dish? There are several. Pots, pans, utensils, ample towels -- good towels -- and virtually everything we needed. Did I mention the gas grill or hot tub? And,... More

We stayed at the Welaka lodge and resort for New Years and were so impressed with the cleanliness, design and amenities of the cabin! Everything is new, and we loved the outdoor hot tub and porches. The staff was very friendly, and the property was well-maintained. We were pleasantly surprised by the cabin and will definitely be back!

Cabin was clean and comfortable. Hot tub was ready and the grill worked fine. I will be back and bring my boat next time. We used this location as a base for house hunting and as a vacation. Thks to the staff for making us feel at home.

We love camping at Welaka Lodge and Resort in our Airstream. The park is small but, packed with fun things to do. We like the small town, old Florida feel. The boat house bar and large dock right on the St. Johns river offers wonderful sunsets and fishing. Rent a boat to explore the river or a golf cart to... More

Spent time on the river and "welakasing" on the front porch or in the hot tub. This was our second stay. Our cottage was very clean and accommodating. Ammenities galore. This place has a friendly, relaxing atmosphere.

We stayed one night in the Deluxe River front room. It was their only availability so they gave us a price break. This was a quick weeknight couples get away by boat. Great location on the river. The room was very nice, very large for just 2 people (also had a murphy bed). Definitely overkill for just one night, but... More
