If you want pillow top mattresses and 300 count sheets, go away! The Sou'wester Lodge is for people who like camping, who like campfires, and roasting hot dogs. That don't mind if you have to wipe the table down before you eat because there is sand everywhere.
The rooms are vintage 1940's, the trailers are probably vintage 50's or 60's? These are the real deal, not new trailers made to look old. I found my stay there wonderful, a free band played in the lodge from 7-10, then they played the "Long, Long, Trailer" movie with Lucy & Desi; if you don't know who these people are; forget it.
A very warm, comfortable, welcoming place to spend a week end. If you are worried about dirt or smells, bring some Clorox wet wipes, a scented candle and some fabreeze; after all, the place is about 100 years old. LOL
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Four cabins and a fleet of 1950's vintage trailers, all furnished, each with a kitchenette (including cookware and tableware). Units vary in size, accommodating 2-6 (or more) people. Our historic lodge offers a large living room filled with books and art where, from time to time, we offer cultural events, such as concerts, readings and lectures. Our grounds include a pavilion for covered outdoor activities & showers for RV guests and tenters. We have numerous RV sites (30amp, sewer & water, Wifi, no cable) and a few tent sites as well. Campfires are not allowed, although there is an old-style fireplace and patio (bring your own wood). Our property is as close to the beach as you can get in Seaview, a six minute walk. ... more less
