“Forget the beach... Give me life on the river”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2016

Kathryn, Ron, Annie, and Gracie couldn't have been more gracious hosts. Kathryn and Ron were so accommodating and Annie and Gracie are my favorite furbabies on the planet. There was so much to enjoy right outside the front door. The river is so relaxing and the entire retreat is so well appointed and still a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed the fire pit, the river, the hammocks, the boat ride, the beautiful night lights, playing with Annie and relaxing with Gracie... The list goes on. Kathryn suggested a visit to Gulf World where she and Ron made sure we were treated like VIP. The shows and exhibits were amazing! And if you're wondering if you should have breakfast... YES! You should. My mom is a very good cook and picky eater and she loved every item on the menu. My mother has always hated bread pudding, but not Kathryn's! It is the best bread pudding you'll ever have. With all of that said; I must say the best part was chatting with Kathryn at breakfast and learning about the history the river holds from the boat ride with Ron. Kathryn and Ron have created a unique experience that you simply can't get anywhere else. State side or abroad- this was my most favorite mini vacation ever and I'm already planning my next visit. I'm home now and I am still feeling rejuvenated and relaxed from my time at Choctaw Lodge Retreat. My only issue is I am hungry because now I have to cook my own breakfast again :(. Tip for future guests: in the master bathroom shower... The big knob at the bottom... Pull it... you're welcome ;)

Response from the owner Thank you Latavia for such a wonderful review! We can't wait for you to come back! By then, I will have perfected my new recipe, Monte Christo Breakfast Casserole!

“A hidden gem on the Choctawhatchee river”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2015

Kathryn and Ron made us feel so welcome. The first impression of the Choctaw Lodge Retreat were serene and beautiful. We could not believe how affordable this place was for us. Kathryn is an amazing hostess and cook. Her breakfasts were divine. You need to have her bread pudding. It's important. Trust me. Captain Ron took us out on the skiff one day to show us the route we could take with the kayaks. He informed us of the history of the river and the area, showed us an alligator and many little hidden areas. He'd shut the engine down and let us just float there and soak it in. He is excellent with his boat and you can tell he has a deep love for the area and the wildlife. If you love dogs, you are going to have a wonderful time here. Annie will play fetch with you until you are exhausted, Gracie is a sweet gentle dog. We met many other neighbors dogs while we were there too. They made as much of an impression on us as out amazing Guest House. The guest house is furnished so wonderfully. Everything is decorated with such care and attention to detail. There are many windows and areas to sit out and relax and view the river. At night, the many landscaping lights come on and it's a magical wonderland. We had fires in the fire pit almost every night and just sat by the river. This was exactly the unwinding, relaxing time we needed. We will be back!

We stumbled on this place while looking for a place to stay in Seaside but immediately knew that this was where we needed to be. I have never felt so comfortable, so relaxed at a vacation destination. Kathryn and Ron are wonderful hosts and really make you feel like family!!! Kathryn's breakfasts were absolutely perfect (best bread pudding I have EVER had!) and Ron's boat tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The actual Guest House is hard to capture in pictures because it is so perfect. I was blown away at how cozy and welcoming it was. It's pretty much what I imagine my dream home to be. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. The bathrooms were straight out of a resort. The main bathroom had a deep tub that is perfect for long soaks and a good book. The bathroom in the master bed has a walk-in, two-headed shower that was just wonderful. The kitchen was fully stocked and we were able to grill one night on the large gas grill under the carport. (Because, really, we just did not want to waste time at a restaurant when we could be there!) And then there are the dogs. Gracie and Annie are two of the sweetest pups I've ever met and it was hard saying goodbye! I had so much fun playing fetch with Annie. The experience would not have been complete without those two. I will absolutely be coming back to this little slice of heaven. The nights by the fire, the days strolling the river - Bliss. Thank you Kathryn and Ron for such a wonderful experience. I could not have asked for more.

“We had our wedding here; it was wonderful in every way possible.”

Kathryn and her husband are wonderful people. They have the most beautiful home. They did everything possible to make sure that we had the wedding ever.
