“A great week, great service and can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

My husband and I and our 13 year-old boys spent the week in the Riverfront Deluxe Cottage. The cottage is very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and cookware. The view of the river from the porch is beautiful! The dock is just steps away with lots of table/chairs to give you shade or sunshine . We all had a blast catching fish,crab and shrimp right from the dock. The staff is so very friendly and helpful. We would have made another trip this summer, had the cottage not been booked!

We've been visiting Welaka for years and have settled on this place as the best home base for our adventures in the area. Whether by boat or camper (we've done both) they have the best combination of friendly staff, a pool, restrooms, manicured grounds, safe docks, etc. We'll definitely be back again.

we stayed for 2 nights in APril and it was simply stunning. We had the loft cottage, which is very nicely decorated (think French boutique) and has a lovely deck with jacuzzi and gas bbq. The setting is stunning, right by the river, so we spent a lot of time on the deck watching the river and gator spotting. The sunsets are wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the cookout they have on a Sunday was great - lots of locals around and a very good vibe. I would absolutley recommend this as the perfect way to relax after a few days of fun in Orlando. Simply beautiful.

Welaka Lodge is absolutely the best fishing lodges and /or leisure vacation spots I have ever I've ever been to in my 40= years of travel. The accomadations are first rate the owners and staff are off the scale when it comes being frieindly and helpful.

The town is laid back old Florida with a great restaurant and bar combination ( Shrimp R Us and More) The perminent and residents and the vacation home owners really know how to make strangers feel welcome.

We stayed in one of the cabins and it would wonderful. If you want to disconnect and not do anything but lounge around and have a romantic getaway this fits the bill.
