Relax on a Beautiful River in a Natural Florida Setting


Home Description

Would you like to visit a place where you have the chance to observe otters, squirrels, alligators, deer, raccoons, woodpeckers, blue herons, hummingbirds, cormorants, fish, and many other species of Florida wildlife in their natural habitats? And, you can do this from the comfort and safety of an observation deck or dock over the river.

If you prefer, you can just sit on the screened porch overlooking the beautiful St. Marks River and soak up the peaceful solitude of a completely unspoiled environment. As the sun goes down, you will be captivated by the rhythmic melodies of the frogs and crickets, guaranteed to soothe your soul.

We would like to introduce you to our friends, Woody and Kathy Lewis who have over 45 years of experience on the St. Marks River. They are both certified 'Green Guides' and live about a half mile down river from the St. Marks Retreat. They have found kayaks and a canoe, and offer guided tours of the river 'from the basin to the bridge.' If you think you would enjoy a paddling trip with Woody & Kathy, please contact them in advance at [email protected] or call 850-421-0462 for rates and availability. To find out how our guests who have been on the tours enjoyed their trip, please read about them in our guest comments. Hope you will give them a call and take advantage of this special opportunity while staying at the Retreat. Happy paddling!!
