Choctaw Lodge Retreat

781 Choctaw Hatchee River Rd , Grayton Beach, FL 32455 USA (Show map)


Choctaw Lodge is located on the banks of the Choctawhatchee River between Ebro and Bruce, FL. Though secluded, guests are only 25 minutes away from Panama City Beach and 35 minutes away from Destin, Seaside, and Grayton Beach. The EO Wilson Biophilia Nature Center at Nokuse Plantation is only seven miles from the Lodge and borders much of the Nokuse Conservation property. The Choctaw Lodge river front property includes three houses nestled among an array of indigenous trees including cypress, cedar and hard woods. Many species of flowers, birds (some rare) and animals can be viewed on this beautiful river. Through guided tours you will discover hidden natural springs and lakes only the locals know about or you may venture out on your own exploring in canoes and kayaks. Your days end with sunsets around the fire pits or a sunset cruise in one of our tour boats.

Like staying wth family

We stayed at Choctaw Lodge after a week at the beach. It was the best B & B we have ever stayed in. The house was elegant, the grounds and garden were well attended and Katherine and Ron treated us like long lost family. Katherine's breakfasts were amazing. Our boat excursion with Katherine and Ron allowed us to see their beloved river through their eyes. Can't wait to return and sit by the fire with the doggies Annie and Gracie and totally relax.

Fun on the river!

I would HIGHLY recommend the Choctaw Lodge retreat and I have to a lot of my friends. Ron and Kathryn were GREAT and wonderful people. We felt completely at home, like we were staying with family. The guest house was perfect. My 4 year old keeps saying he wants to go back to "our other house" :)
