WaterColor Inn, nestled on nearly 500 acres of sugar-white sand beach, is surrounded by 1,400 linear feet of beachfront and pine forests alongside Western Lake, the state’s second-largest naturally occurring coastal dune lake. The 60-room Inn offers deluxe accommodations designed by David Rockwell, each overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and donning a pair of Adirondack chairs on the patio (and on the first floor, a private outdoor cabana shower). Perfectly encapsulating the spirit of an intimate beach getaway—while providing the functionality necessary for a family vacation—the freshly redecorated beachfront rooms bring the outdoors in, mere footsteps from the sand. From the soft linens to the spa-inspired toiletries, every well-appointed room offers a relaxing and comfortable seaside oasis. Dining options include FOOW (formerly Fish Out of Water), a family-friendly restaurant serving fresh, locally-inspired Southern cuisine in a coastal-casual setting with stunning Gulf views and an expansive indoor/outdoor bar. At The Gathering Spot, located adjacent to the hotel lobby, guests can enjoy a casual meal in a laid back, beach-house setting, featuring inventive bowl-themed entrees and a Build-Your-Own Martini selection – providing guests the opportunity to experiment with flavors. At WaterColor Inn, all guests enjoy access to the new Camp WaterColor (completed Spring 2019), featuring a zero-entry pool with slide, a small children's pool with slide, a lazy river, playground and basketball court, as well as The Canteen Restaurant and Bar. Additionally, the newly expanded WaterColor Beach Club now boasts a new main pool with expanded seating and lounge areas, the new Rita Bar and a newly designed welcome reception area. When the final phase of the expansion is completed (anticipated to be Spring 2020), guests will also be able to enjoy a second pool deck with additional lounge seating and a third pool with zero-entry, in addition to an enlargement of the iconic WaterColor Grill and a brand-new casual fast-dining option, aptly named Beach Cow. Managed by St. Joe Hospitality, this distinctive hotel property affords guests access to a bevy of the private membership club’s amenities including complimentary use of bicycles, kayaks, canoes, discounted stand-up paddle board rentals, access to two nearby private golf clubs (Camp Creek & Shark's Tooth), and more.
