Nestled in the heart of a gorgeous 6,000-acre forest, The Lodge at Wakulla Springs is a vintage 1930s castle that offers a unique, cozy stay beside one of the world’s largest and deepest freshwater springs. Guests are welcomed by the remarkable architecture and elegance of the Grand Lobby. After checking in, patrons scale a massive marble staircase to their acclaimed accommodations. The 27 illustrious hotel rooms each impart their own completely distinctive experiences, often resulting in Wakulla enthusiasts requesting particular quarters on a regular basis.
The Edward Ball Dining Room serves an assortment of southern specialties and farm-to-table creations. The Soda Fountain was built with the world’s longest known marble bar at 70 feet long where guests enjoy an array of hand-dipped ice creams, delicious snacks, and beverages. Wakulla Springs is also a renowned event venue hosting weddings, reunions, and vow renewals while drawing couples in with the beauty of the Park and majesty of the Lodge. Businesses appreciate the availability of professional spaces that are prepared to accommodate whatever their groups need.
Wakulla Springs State Park visitors enjoy a wide variety of spectacular activities like the fan-favorite 22-foot diving platform into the fresh spring waters, the glass-bottom riverboat tours on the magical Wakulla River and countless unforgettable hiking trails. The Lodge invites visitors to indulge in an everlasting experience of one of Florida’s most spectacular natural destinations.
