Absolutely beautiful setting. Guest home was lovely and very comfortable for our family of 5. We booked this property due to its proximity to so many things and regret terribly not having enough time to enjoy Choctaw Lodge Retreat more and explore the Choctawhatchee River. We will most definitely be back!
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Guest House for a quick weekend getaway. Amazing!! The house was beautiful, the kitchen was fully equipped, and we loved sitting on the front porch swing and enjoying the river views. We grilled dinner each night and ended our evenings at the fire pit with wine. Kathryn's bread pudding definitely lived up to the hype-- but her cheese grits deserve praise as well! Ron is an excellent boat captain and we enjoyed our 1/2 day river tour and the beautiful blooming wild azaleas. My absolute favorite location was canopy lake. We can't wait to come back with our own boat for another relaxing weekend!
This place is wonderful and close to beaches. Once stepping on the property had no desire to go to the beaches or leave this place. Peaceful beyond explanation. Owners are wonderful,generous and lovely people. Breakfast served each morning was out of this world. The area is like out of a magical storybook. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return. Accommodations better than described too!
One of the sweetest couples I've ever met they went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for us I can't wait to go back next time without teenagers
Completely unique and amazing experience that delighted our whole family from start to finish. All seven of us! None of us were ready to go home after being so thoroughly welcomed, cared for, and spoiled by Ron and Kathryn. They are so kind and genuine in doing all they can to make your stay more than a vacation. Traveling with 5 daughters ranging in ages from 3 and 9 can be a challenge, but staying in the fully furnished Guest House felt just like home and made it so much easier. I was able to buy groceries and cook seamlessly in the fully stocked kitchen. But don't pass on Kathryn's breakfasts!!! They are freshly prepared at any time you request each day, and she discusses the delicious menu options with you beforehand along with a buffet spread of delicious extras to be sure everyone was happy and bellies were full. We all loved the little adventure with Ron on his boat down the river showing us the local wildlife and telling us stories about the area. It was also nice to have a friendly local to ask questions to help guide us to our destinations and activities. Chatting with Ron and Kathryn about their own lives and adventures and playing with their dogs Grace and Annie was equally entertaining. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is just what beautifully decorated and cozy on the inside and beautifully landscaped around the property. Perfect for those that appreciate nature and wanna get away from it all. We're already talking about coming back.
My friends and I had a wonderful time there. It was great to kayak and to go on a boat ride. We had the best time. Ron and Katheryn are very warm and helpful people!
