The lodge was very nice. The rooms are small but nicely located and some with balconies. Located directly on the water with docking space. Ability to rent boats from nearby marina to explore outer islands. Rooms are slightly pricey but the view makes it worth it.Grounds are well maintained and pool is adequate.

From the glamor days of "old Florida" and in this completely refurbished lodge from the early 1900's, The Tarpon Lodge owners have re-created the luxury accommodations and exquisitely fine foods that were served here a century and a half ago. You don't drive past this restaurant by accident. It is a destination, and it is one you shouldn't miss! It's... More

We stayed in room #6 with a king size bed and had a balcony that overlooked the bay. The room was meticulously clean and extremely comfortable. We knew we were in for a pampered time when I received a call from the receptionist asking if we wanted reservations for dinner that night. And this was before we even arrived. We... More

My husband and I were guests for one night last week and enjoyed our stay very much. The lovely waterfront location, the peace and tranquility, the sense of 'old' Florida were all important to us. We had dinner at their restaurant and found it excellent. We particularly found the staff very friendly and helpful, whether passing in the hallway, serving... More

Stayed here April 5 - 7, 2016 in the Sanibel room in the lodge. Room was not overy large but was well appointed and comfortable. The small balcony overlooking the pool, grounds and water was especially appreciated. We would sit there with a glass of wine , admire the view and simply enjoy each others company. The room was right... More

My wife and I had dinner at Tarpon Lodge on March 31st. Both of our meals and salads were excellent. We've been there many times before and always have been delighted with the service and the food. The staff and the chef are teriffic! It's a hike over to Pine Island, but definitely worth the drive.

There aren't many fine dining establishments on Pine Island, but this one takes care of that. Make reservations. You'll want to start off with a nice cocktail outside prior to your reservation. There are a few tables and benches or you can walk the shoreline. The restaurant sits right on Pine Island Sound. Plenty of Pelicans, Terns and such. The... More

We have stayed at the Tarpon Lodge frequently when we come to Florida from the North, either before or after a trip to neighboring Sanibel and Captiva. The Lodge is so quiet and lovely/ We love lounging by the pool and watching the sunsets, having a drink in the bar and eating on the Porch. This year we had some... More

My husband and I were here for 2 nights recently. We positioned ourselves here as a convenient launching point to visit North captiva which is accessible by regular boat service at the marina next door. We had an upper room facing the water and sunset which is beautiful and great in the morning because the sun is not too bright.... More

After our flight was delayed by 5 hours, we decided to travel across the bridge to Pineland and Tarpon Restaurant. We could not have been more pleased with the food, ambiance, and service. It is off the beaten path (which is part of the allure) and we would highly recommend to anyone searching for a taste of real Florida.
