We are retired now, so we have time to take it slow. We enjoy unique places to stay and King's Bay Lodge has nice apartment-style units in a tranquil location. We loved watching the birds and sunsets over the water. We launched our kayak right there and saw tons of manatees, many baby manatees too. So much fun! Three Sisters Spring is gorgeous and very close.
The spring-fed "Old Florida" pool is really one-of-a-kind; crystal clear water with natural vegetation and little fish. No chlorine, it's naturally clean.
Nothing fancy on the outside but the inside was spacious and clean. The tiled bathroom looked like it had been recently been remodeled. The rooms have a full-size coffee maker (for me) and a full-size frig and flat screen TV for my husband. We even had his and hers Lazy-Boy chairs.
We cooked many meals "at home" and we liked the local neighborhood. Easy to walk to casual and fine restaurants, an Irish bar, a wine store and antique stores. Hope to come back.
