“Perfect escape from the rat race”
Reviewed 14 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

we needed an adult escape from the office and a place where our son (14) who is a wild child, in the sense of happier in the woods and the water, than any where else, would be able to be. We were eager to see the Choctaw lodge, but could not have imagined how great it would be. We stayed in the Boat House for 5 nights (2br, 1 ba) and it was perfect. The river right out the door, beautiful scenery, and oh, so, quiet. We were charmed by the scenery, the accommodations, and the hospitality of the owners who truly made us feel like a part of the family.

“Quite simply, an amazing place to enjoy the outdoors, family and”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

The photos we previewed prior to booking our vacation could not have prepared us for this breathtaking retreat.

The pictures simply cannot do the Choctaw Lodge justice.

We were met by the Owner and instantly felt like part of the family. The warmth and beauty of this Lodge make you feel at home the moment you arrive.

Every detail is first class. This "cabin" feels more like a day spa.

That said, the Lodge maintains a perfect balance between luxury and a rustic, family friendly environment.

We returned home yesterday and we're already searching our calendar for an opportunity to revisit the Choctaw Lodge.

Having stayed here, we cannot imagine staying anywhere else on our next trip the Destin/Panama City area.
