I moved from this area over 10 years ago, and upon booking a room for a family reunion for nostalgic purposes, it ended up being like I was booking on Frontier Airlines - the price for the room IS NOT THE PRICE!!! You then get charged for anyone over 2 people PER PERSON (meaning = extra if you bring your...

I absolutely adored this lodge. I would have to agree with another reviewer in that it feels like a tucked away fish camp. The pub deck is beautiful with old wood used in neat ways and the pool table was in great shape. The dinner on the grill deck watching the sunset was amazing and the blackened mahi was something...

Me and a buddy stayed here in February 2016 to fish the St. John's River and loved the place! They have a really cool bar overlooking the river that serves tall draft beer at the lowest price I have ever seen! We stayed in a motel room and when you enter you would think you were staying in a cabin...

We stayed over the New Year weekend and had a wonderful time. Cabins were clean, comfortable beds, and great friendly people. Restaurant has wonderful food and a bar on property made it a plus for us. Thank you Becky for your help answering my questions. Lovely Old Florida Charm and can't wait to come back. Already booked for next year!...

Great get away! I can't say that enough. Great accommodations, everything you could want in one spot. Nice clean rooms and a very welcoming staff.

We had decided that we "must" getaway for a couple of days but did not want to drive too far so we went online to see if we could find someplace to go relax and unwind within a two hour drive from home. I am so glad that we decided to go to Anderson's Lodge which was less than an...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small Inn with an "Old Florida" feel. We have nine motel rooms. We are located in the town of Welaka, Florida on the beautiful St. John's River. All rooms are equipped with memory foam mattresses, flat screen televisions, refrigerators, coffee makers, plush towels, 600 thread count sheets, and high speed DSL internet. Waters Edge Pub & Grill are currently closed due to damage by a tree during Hurricane Matthew. We have permits and are hopefully going to start rebuilding soon. The Pubs deck was built 20' over the river with awesome sunsets and wildlife viewing. The Pub is currently closed but you can still see the view from the Pub deck. Closed because of Hurricane damage. Boat slips are available at an additional charge for those coming to visit by boat. ... more   less
