Historic Wakulla Springs Lodge
This genteel Mediterranean Revival style hotel built in 1937 by wealthy financier Edward Ball has maintained its stately grandeur up to the present day. Surrounded by 6,000 forested acres in Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, the historic Wakulla Springs Lodge retains its grand Art Deco marble-and-iron staircase and intricately painted ceiling of local wildlife and other decorative scenes. The world’s longest known marble bar, at 70 feet 3 inches, is in the Soda Fountain/Gift Shop.
The Lodge at Wakulla is operated by an independent concessionaire. Guest Services, Inc. manages all aspects of the lodge including the restaurant, gift shop, ice cream parlor/snack bar, lodging, and seasonal concessions at the historic bathhouse. The Lodge features regular lodging/dining specials and can host special events.
