Interaction with guests
Pam and Lance live in the Main Lodge by the river and love to see their guests enjoy all that is to offer. The Lodge's 'back yard' is made available to all guests during their stay and the Hosts are available only as needed preferring to give our guests total privacy.

Pam and Lance (the hosts) have created a peaceful retreat within the beautiful nature of this area. We had such a wonderful time floating, kayaking, enjoying the river and relaxing with friends and family. If you need to recharge your batteries this is the place!...More

This place was AMAZING! We fell in love with it since we got there, the lodge's view to the river is wonderful, and so peaceful. The units are completely clean and smelled fantastic; they had everything we needed, and the outside showers were the best!...More

Had a wonderful stay at this hidden gem on the Santa Fe River. A beautiful paradise that is tucked away with access to the River that is within Kayaking distance of the nearby springs. The accommodations were great. I will definitely be back!

About the neighbourhood
Located between High Springs and Fort White, the Lazy Turtle Lodge is 'in the country'. The last mile of travel is dirt road and there is a sign that reads 'Where the rough road ends the good life begins'. That is the truth. Deer, wild turkeys and Hawks will greet you while the lazy turtles just bask in the sun on the edge of the river. With cypress trees, oaks and Spanish moss, this is truly Old Florida.
