My husband and I have stayed at the Welaka lodge and Resort 4 times, three of which we stayed in the one bedroom cottage just up the hill, first cabin to the left if your driving in. The fourth of which we stayed in the cottage with the loft, absolute beautiful!! The hot tub on the back deck, is so soothing after a long day of fishing and large enough for 4 people easily, very clean! Luxury you won't find at just any resort around here! A small slice of heaven! Also, relax by the fireplace and start the amazingly even cooking gas BBQ to get ready to have a fresh fish dinner caught in the river, you have to go to appreciate this hidden gem. Would recommend this place to anyone! As a matter of fact, my parents are coming out from Canada, and we plan to take them to the Welaka Lodge and resort for a few days, they will absolutely love it here, I know it! They have beautiful lakes in Canada, but this place is unbelievable, everything is right there for you. You really never have to leave the grounds until you are through with your stay! Can't wait to stay with you again in the next week or so, hoping that there is a cottage available for 4 adults. See you soon! Thanks again for the wonderful stay!
