“Great Vacation Destination”

Reviewed November 27, 2013 by PatB267 of Milford, Connecticut

My wife and I spent last week on vacation at Tarpon Lodge. We stayed at the “Cottage” . The cottage was so cozy, clean and comfortable, it exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived, we were met by a very friendly and courteous staff, offering us tips on everything from fishing to local must see sites. The restaurant was unbelievable, incredible menu, with service that matched. The views and sunsets were spectacular. We rented a boat and used it every day to visit places like Captiva, Cabbage Key, Sanibel and Boca Grande. The fishing was great, and the dolphins with their antics even better. We will return to this lovely lodge to vacation again. Highly endorse Tarpon Lodge and their Facilty. Also very romantic. Thank you all for the great time we had. Pat B.

“Magical place!!!”

Reviewed February 23, 2015 by arkham1978 of Viroflay, France

We came from France to get married near Sanibel and spent two nights at the Tarpon lodge. It was simply magical. People were lovely and the cottage we lived in was gorgeous. We are looking forward to come back one day.

“Wonderful Getaway in Historic Lodge”

Reviewed May 16, 2015 by ABReid of Lexington,KY

We stayed in the cottage building which had a combo living area/kitchen, with a small fridge and a microwave, and a separate bedroom. Large windows looked out on the small marina, and we were steps away from a beautiful view of the sunset. The small pool was relaxing and quite warm to be “heated only by the sun.” We took long walks in the evenings (be sure to bring insect repellent) through the surrounding neighborhood and at the Calusa Heritage Trail across the street from the lodge.

The restaurant at the lodge was as wonderful as the accommodations. We ate three meals there and everything we tried was delicious from the salad with bronzed shrimp and goat cheese to fish tacos and crab cakes. Desserts are not to be missed. especially the made-in-house creme brulee and key lime pie. The service was exemplary and the restaurant manager was very hands-on, stopping by and asking diners about their experience. If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful getaway in a pleasant environment with an “old Florida” feel, Tarpon Lodge fits the bill.

“Wonderful Paradise”

Reviewed September 3, 2008 by Tripper025 of Ga

This place is a little jewel. Very clean with a professional friendly staff. We stayed in one of the cottages which was nice and roomy. The pool was great and the restaurant was fantastic.

I plan to go back.
