“Beautiful Sunset and Fabulous Food”

Reviewed May 24, 2015 by christinapmayo of Miami, Florida

This was my third stay at Tarpon Lodge and though we could visit Pine Island for only one night, the tranquility of the place and staying at this gorgeous historic lodge made it feel like a much longer trip. Peggy walked my daughter back to the car with an umbrella after check-in during a short rain shower and she gave us coffee to warm up. Walking around the property later was like taking a step back in time to a much more relaxed era. Sunset over the dock was almost unbelievable in color, and the pelicans and Great White Egrets flew right past us as we explored. Watching the last of the sunset while eating dinner at the Tarpon Lodge Restaurant was wonderful as was the fresh, delicious and creatively prepared food. Our server was skillfully trained, attentive and friendly, and it really was such an unexpected treat to find all this at an off-the-beaten path place. This was a fabulous experience all around.

“Great Memorial Day Getaway”

Reviewed May 30, 2012 by Lee G of Tampa, Florida

This was my second or third trip to the Tarpon Lodge and it was as wonderful as I remember it. The historic lodge on Pine Island, Florida, is a great place to go for a quiet, relaxing weekend. Fun place to take your boat as there are docking facilities and lots of fun islands nearby to explore. The service is excellent! Because it is not a large facility and it is family-owned and managed, you will be treated more like a guest visiting a friend’s home than a patron staying in a hotel. The rooms in the historic part of the lodge, with the beautiful old pine wood floors, are my favorite. It has the feel of a quaint B&B. Other members of my family stayed in the newer part and their rooms were carpeted and more like a hotel room. There are also two “boat house” rooms on the property where some of my family have stayed with young children and enjoyed it, as it is more like an efficiency. I have not seen those rooms. The restaurant is very good, the servers are very friendly, the pool is very nice. The grounds are beautiful and a great place to watch stunning sunsets.

“Just Perfect”

Reviewed May 29, 2013 by Patricia D of Fort Myers, Florida

I took my disabled daughter for a scenic ride and stopped by for lunch and must say we were mesmerized by the view and our lunch was wonderful. That being said, we booked the next evening to stay and enjoy more of the views, live music, staff and food. My daughter was delighted with her comfy queen size bed and the charm of this historic lodge. We cannot wait to book our next mini vacation here and enjoy the wonderful staff. Thank you all for being so gracious to us and look forward to seeing you soon! Patricia and Kelly D

“Paradise in Pineland”

Reviewed April 9, 2014 by xelasi of Landisville, Pennsylvania

We cannot stop talking about the wonderful experience we had while staying at the Tarpon Lodge for 5 nights. We stayed in a water view room on the second floor of the main lodge building. The room was clean, tastefully decorated and had a sliding glass door that led to a small balcony overlooking the grounds and the water. It was convenient to have a mini fridge in the room. A bonus of staying in the main lodge building is the free wifi. We appreciate the historic nature and charm of the lodge, which was one of our considerations in choosing to book our stay here. We ate one lunch and three dinners at the lodge and enjoyed the atmosphere of both the screened porch and the bar room. The food is outstanding and menu selections are varied for diverse tastes. We ate at a couple of other establishments on Pine Island and Matlacha and nothing compared to our meals at the Tarpon Lodge. Sunsets at the lodge are glorious – be sure not to miss! The staff at the Tarpon Lodge are extremely accommodating and friendly…..special thanks to Shohreh, Mike, Jennifer and other staff members for making our stay truly memorable…..we will return to the Tarpon Lodge when we travel to Southwest Florida again. We feel like we have found a relaxing little corner of paradise there.

“This is one of the best “Old Florida” Inn’s”

Reviewed January 4, 2016 by JoAnne Q of Orlando, Florida, United States

We took a road trip and wanted to visit the island known as Pine Island. Little did we know that there are three “communities” on Pine Island, Pineland, St. James City and Bokeelia. We took the time to visit all the areas, but we were truly in search of the famous “Tarpon Lodge”. It has been there since 1926 and has survived the 2004 Hurricane Charley where most of the 1926 structure was preserved. It is now on the National and State Historic Register! Once a little “fishing shack” is now a beautiful inn with a lot of history and a beautiful place to stay. The sunsets are breath taking and the quiteness is soothing. Plan to stay and enjoy the fresh air.
