Staying at the Lodge

A stay at the Lodge is a step back to slower times. The Lodge is one of Americas castles, built in the 1930s and located in the middle of a wooded paradise. The rooms are much like they were when the Lodge was built, with vintage bathrooms and giant closets suitable for staying a night or a season. Our 27 rooms are each unique in size and configuration, the grandest of which overlook the Springs. In keeping with the Lodge’s atmosphere, there are no televisions in the rooms.

There are several special rooms: The Edward Ball Room was the private room of Edward Ball, the builder of the Lodge. It includes his special closet -- where he hid his supply of Old Forester Bourbon through Prohibition, and later when Wakulla was a dry county. The Jessie Ball Dupont Room was his sister's private room overlooking the Springs.

All of our rooms are on the second floor of the Lodge, accessible either by our grand marble staircase or the oldest working Art Deco elevator in the south.

Enjoy your evenings in our grand lobby. We often have live music, and our lobby staff can mix a drink if you wish. Our fireplace is wonderful to sit around when the weather is cool. You can gaze upon the Springs from our terrace and hopefully see some manatees, or one of the Parks other wild guests.

We have rooms suitable for all needs. Please ask if you need a room that meets ADA requirements. Click on our reservations option to the left of this page to see what we have available, so that you may plan your stay with us.
