We have stayed at the Welaka Lodge 3 times. Every visit has been wonderful. The cabins are meticulously clean and beautifully furnished. The staff is friendly and the sunsets can not be beat. We take our boat and use one of their slips and it works out great.

The cabin was nicely appointed and had most of what we needed. Very clean. Front porch with rockers and great back porch with hot tub, large grill, and wood burning outdoor fire place....

We stayed in the double cottage for 3 nights. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. Everyone was very friendly. The Sunday afternoon fish sandwiches and hamburgers at the bar were great. Breakfast and dinner at Shrimp R Us (about 1/2 mile away) was tasty and reasonably priced. We rented a canoe one day and walked the...
