    Live Like the Rich on a Budget

    My husband and I stayed at The Lodge in October 2019 for one night. Huge mistake. Book a few nights to enjoy this gorgeous place. As soon as you walk into the lobby you are transported into the past. Everything was immaculate and check in was fast and friendly.

    After check in we took the vintage elevator to the second floor. It has a manual door to close and makes a bunch of noise. It was scary and an amazing historic experience at the same time.

    We stayed in the Jesse DuPont suite. It was huge! The bed was comfortable and we had a massive closet. I had no issues with the bathroom, air conditioning or furniture. Everything was clean and elegant.

    We ate dinner at the onsite Edward Ball Dining Room. The menu changes seasonally, but everything we had was wonderful.

    We did not have time to take a boat tour and in hindsight this was a mistake. The little bit we saw of the grounds was stunning. We got a malt and phosphate from the soda fountain to go.

    With the room and dinner we spent around $200 at The Lodge. It was a bargain considering the elegant environment and great service. I encourage anyone to book The Lodge for several days to relax and pretend you are a DuPont. I would come back in a heartbeat.

    A fabulous hotel that took us back in time to the glory days of the 30's but with comfortable 21century beds.
    We felt like we had the park to ourselves and we were enchanted by the sound of owls and aligator bellows at night.

    The restaurant on site also really exceeded our expectations with great food and good local beer.
    Don't pass the chance to stay here.

    Although the key of the room my wife got never worked and mine needed help from staff several times, we still enjoyed this Lodge. Very quaint. Overlooking the Wakulla River, the Lodge sits magnificently. Guess since it's part of the State Park, they don't have money to fix too much but perhaps that's the charm. No TV in the room which is great. Less than 30 rooms. We were able to take an one hour boat ride which was a highlight.

    We had not been to Wakulla Springs in years, so we decided to take a Sunday stroll. The weather was perfect. We ate lunch at The Lodge and everything was delicious. The service (Mia) was great too. We rode the boat down the river and enjoyed the wildlife. It all made for a perfect day

    Very nice in an old-time way. Although the menu is not extensive, the food is very nicely presented and is delicious. We split the seafood platter, added salads and drinks, and took home about half the seafood, it was huge. All the seafood was deep fried, but it was possible to easily remove the coating from the whitefish. All very good.... hush puppies, shrimp, crab cakes, oysters.

    There's a nice wine list and favorite mixed drinks and beer. We didn't try any, but the drinks menu looked good. Peanut butter pie for dessert was creamy and good. The chef at the lodge restaurant is doing an outstanding job. We will be back when traveling this way again.
