“Just wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We have just come back from our 4 night stay at Newell Lodge and can't wait to turn around and go back. The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed and more, the little extras like, first aid box, washing up liquid, needles and thread, etc, all the small things you wished you remembered to pack and didn't. There are fire pits to use right next to the cottages and wood is supplied ready and waiting for the night time smores. The grounds were lovely and looked very pretty at night with the trees lit up, the use of a golf cart just made my youngest daughters time there a blast along with being able to fish whenever she wanted, Harvin went into town and got bait for her as well as raiding their kitchens for hot dogs for her to use, what more could she ask for. My oldest daughter and I went trail riding and had a fantastic time each time we rode, John and Ashley were wonderful guides and they have horses for every level of riding so give it a try if you haven't done so before. What can I say about Kay's cooking....wonderful....only negative is the weight I put on, it was very hard to say no, so I didn't. I really can't say enough about this family that own and run Newell Lodge, they are so so nice and nothing is too much trouble, they go above and beyond wherever possible. It really is home away from home but better.

For the second year in a row my daughter and I enjoyed a weekend together at Newell Lodge. Being horse lovers we found this wonderful country hideaway through a deal at Livingsocial. We weren't sure what to expect, but were delighted with our two bedroom cottage, with full kitchen and living area and complete with our own golf cart to explore the property. There are about 8-10 cottages spread out among an area covered with amazing Live Oaks with Spanish Moss, gazebos and hanging swings throughout and pretty lights strung through the trees that are so pretty at night.

Our package included an hour-long trail ride for each night we stayed plus a full, delicious breakfast each morning. We were taken on private rides by Ashley both days, at our requested times, even though there were other guests staying at the same time. She told us she likes to personalize the trail ride and I especially enjoyed this after having gone on many "nose to tail" trail rides we usually encounter with up to 20 riders. The horses were wonderful! We were paired with horses according to our riding experience, and Ashley even asked my daughter if she wanted to go into the pasture to help bring our horses in. Needless to say, she was thrilled!

Ashley is the daughter of Kay and Harbin, and all three were so welcoming and genuinely interested in making our stay as pleasant as possible. Harbin helped us fish in their pond one afternoon, and would check in on us throughout the day to see if we needed anything. Kay is an amazing cook and so thoughtful. She even sent us home with a Newell Lodge coffee mug and extra apple scones for my husband since it was Father's Day weekend.

The first year we went to Newell Lodge we spent one day at the Okefenokee Swamp, which was a lot of fun! This year we opted to go into Fernandina Beach, and took our dogs. Did I mention that Newell Lodge has a dog friendly cabin?

No matter what you do, you will have a very comfortable and relaxing stay at Newell Lodge, and the hospitality can't be topped. We will definitely be back!

Newell Lodge provided an amazing weekend away - we loved the cozy cabins and the homemade breakfasts were wonderful! The trail rides were alot of fun and great for experienced riders as well as newbies, everyone was so helpful and friendly from making sure everything was set up prior to check in as well as packing us picnic lunches and just checking in throughout the weekend to make sure everything was going well.
The grounds were beautiful and so relaxing, this is the perfect weekend getaway!

We visited Newell Lodge through a deal on livingsocial, and loved the place. Beautiful countryside location that was initially difficult to find, but loved it when we got there. Stayed in one of the small cabins. They were very nice, but it is difficult to sleep 2 people in the larger of the 2 bedrooms in a full size bed. Breakfast was prepared daily by our hostess, Kay, and Harbin went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. We loved the horses and the riding experience as well. We shall return!

Room Tip: Small cabins have room for 3 people, one room with a double bed, and one room with a twin. Full kit...

We recently had our wedding here for the beauty the grounds hold. We stayed in one of the cabins and it was awesome! The cabins are clean, roomy, and each one has a different style to it. The owners are awesome and try to accommodate in any way possible. This place is a small gem that more people should stay at for the great outdoor scenery and habitat that surrounds it.

Highly recommend! My husband and parents had a wonderful weekend here. Beautiful property and cabins. The cabins are all nicely decorated and very clean. The staff members are very friendly and welcoming, checked on us multiple times to see if we needed anything. Felt very comfortable and very relaxing. Will definitely be returning.

What an awesome experience and fantastic deal! Our family is still talking about our stay at this lodge. The horse back riding was the highlight of a very busy week vacationing from Jekyll Island to Titusville, Fl then back home to Atlanta. Our last night was spent at Newell Lodge. The great home cooking was very much appreciated by all of us after a week of eating restaurant food. Our cottage was so clean and roomy. We were extremely comfortable there and felt right at home. We will definitely be back again.
