Description

Nature enthusiasts will never want to leave after an encounter at this retreat on the Choctawhatchee River. Secluded amid cypress, cedar and hard woods, yet only 25 minutes from Panama City Beach, the natural splendor invades the senses. Activities include use of the canoes and kayaks, play horseshoes or bocce ball, and nap in a hammock by the water. Paths lead to swings, picnic tables, benches and chairs. Soak in the Jacuzzi in a screened-in porch. Take a sunset cruise and sit by the firepit in the evening. Accommodations are provided in the main lodge, the boat house and the guest house. A 48-foot houseboat is also available. Wake up hungry for a full-course breakfast that blends southern cuisine with a gourmet flair and indulge in a special Sunday brunch menu. Savor afternoon tea and desserts. Picnic lunches for day trips and snacks vary day to day.

YOU SHOULD STAY HERE.

We had our wedding here. It was amazing. Everyone said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We want to stay here every year on our anniversary. It's the best in every way possible.

An Unforgettable Experience

My daughter wedding was there and it was everything we hopped for and more. Ron and Kathryn were great hosts and Kathryn made sure everything went smoothly. I can't thank her enough, she went above and beyond in everything she did. The cottages were clean, nicely decorated, well maintained with a lot of little extra touches. The grounds are beautiful and must be experienced to fully appreciate.

This place is truly magical. Everything was perfectly run. The owners made every guest feel right at home on a spot most would never get to experience.

I am having my wedding here

I am having my wedding here soon. Mrs. Hardy has been extremely helpful and wonderful in every way. She is so nice; and her property is beautiful. She had so many wonderful ideas. We had multiple visits to discuss wedding plans. She seemed as excited about my wedding as I was. Her home is BEAUTIFUL! I highly recommend this place.

Tony's 65th Birthday!!!

I gifted Tony a trip out on the boat overnight for his 65th Birthday. The weather was beautiful for October. We had candlelight dinner and margaritas on the party deck up top and watched the sun go down and the stars come out! The next morning we went kayaking and critter watching right after sun up. The "Choctaw Lady" is a class act. The host and hostess are both amazing in how they took care of us......and wow what an awesome breakfast we had to just pop in the microwave in the morning and we had breakfast up on the top deck. We are all ready to book for our Summer trip for 2012. Signed: Sailor Tony & First Mate Teresa from Tallahassee, Florida...

We Love Choctaw Lodge Retreat

If you like getting away from it all in Florida or just want to relax, this is the place to go. They have fire pits outside your house with beautiful views of the river, trees are lit at night, hammocks for relaxing, comfortable chairs outside to curl up with a book in, canoes or kayaks for going out on the river, or relax in the hot tub at the lodge. The Guest House and the Boat houses are First Class and beautifully decorated. This site is secluded but yet still not too far from whatever you want to do. The owners Ron and Kathryn Hardy are fantastic people and do everything they can to make you feel at home and special, and you won't lose any weight eating breakfast (unless you really want to) Kathryn is an awesome cook. I highly recommend!!!! You will leave refreshed. Art Jumper
