Lazy Turtle Lodge - Turtle Palace Unit
Vacation home in Fort White with kitchen and patio
Set amidst oaks and cypress on the Lazy Turtle Lodge estate, Turtle Palace is a cozy, comfy fully equipped 28' Cardinal RV with large covered deck, picnic table, Weber charcoal grill, rocking chairs and wonderful hammock. All linens, towels, shampoo, and complimentary coffee and tea are provided. Hot outdoor showers for two (common to both units) are also available (as well as shower wraps/robes) and loved by all our guests especially on moonlit nights. lovely 500 ft walk or drive takes you to view and access the beautiful Santa Fe River where you can float, kayak, paddle, swim, fish or sit on the dock and watch the river flow by. A perfect place to escape, float, kayak, canoe, cave dive, explore springs or just watch the river flow. "Glamping" and ecotourism at its best where time is slow and easy. NO Internet at unit - only around Lodge. The pull out could accommodate a child or two. Additional guests, over two, are $25/person/night. Children under 6 are free (two children max). There is an outside (common to both rental units) hot water shower for two that is every guest's favorite. The main Lodge (owner's residence) is at the river. The Lazy Turtle Lodge is a 10 acre estate, set in a quiet and beautiful oak, cypress and spanish moss hammock on the banks of the Santa Fe River, one of North Florida's most beautiful spring fed rivers. The estate includes Turtle Heaven (the trailer also on FlipKey), Turtle Palace (the camper), and the main Lodge. Peace, tranquility, wildlife and beautiful sunsets are the norm. Turtle Palace is also a 1.5 mile country walk to Rum Island Park and a short drive to Oleno St. Park. It is also across from Lily Springs, downriver from Poe Springs and upriver from Ginnie Springs. Guests can float/paddle directly from the dock at the Lazy Turtle Lodge to Rum Island Park or put in at US 441 or US 27 for a longer river ride to the Lodge. Canoe and kayak rentals are available at Rum 138 on the corner of CR 138 and Rum Island Terrace and can be delivered on-site. Whether you want to canoe, kayak, paddle board, float, fish or simple watch the river go by on the dock, Turtle Palace is the place to completely get away from big city stress. "Glamping" and ecotourism at its best. All guests will be asked to sign a General Accident and Release of Liability Form at check in.
