Welcome To Wakulla Springs Lodge
The Wakulla Springs Lodge is located in the Wakulla Springs State Park, near historic Tallahassee, Florida. Considered a Florida architectural landmark, the Lodge has been on the grounds since 1937, and is featured, along with the nearly 6,000 acre park and river, on the National Register of Historic Places.
Surrounded by nature, including canopies of oak, hickory and beech trees, the natural spring, and Florida wildlife, the Lodge offers an old southern feel and a peaceful getaway for family vacations and reunions, weddings, anniversaries, conferences, and other special events. The Lodge also is a perfect retreat for artists, writers, or those that just want to “get away from it all."
Guests will be inspired by nature’s beauty and serenity, not to be interrupted inside of any one of the 27 guest rooms, which overlook the spring, park and courtyard. In keeping with the Lodge atmosphere there are no televisions in the rooms.
The Lodge itself showcases an American style popularized during the 1920s and 30s, which combines Mediterranean Revival and “art deco” motifs, including massive masonry and wrought iron grill work. There is also a lavish use of marble throughout the Lodge, as well as heart cypress wood and breathtaking decorative art work depicting wildlife scenes.
The Ball Room Dining Room provides visitors with spectacular views of the water and offers three meals daily, featuring old and new southern specialties, fresh seafood, classic sandwiches and more. The staff is more than happy to cater special events for guests and visitors.
Guests can also take advantage of all the activities the Wakulla Springs State Park has to offer, including swimming and snorkeling in the natural freshwater spring. Riverboat and glass bottom boat tours give nature lovers a unique glimpse at Florida wildlife, including alligators, turtles, manatees and more. There is a fee to enter the park. Guests staying at the Lodge, and restaurant guests that enter the park after 5 p.m., will not be charged this fee.
A most unique retreat, standing today as it did over seven decades ago, changed only for comfort and safety, Wakulla Spring Lodge offers visitors a timeless glimpse into Florida’s pristine and elegant past.
