The Lodge is a remodeled housing structure built in the 1920s and originally operated for workers constructing the Tamiami Trail.
The Lodge consists of eleven air-conditioned rooms off a long hallway and common area, but separate men's and women's bathrooms. Each room has either a full sized bed and a twin size bed, or one queen size bed. There are no heaters, TV's, phones or bathrooms in these rooms. A few heaters are located in the hallway and living room. Guests often gather in the common living room to visit with others, read, play games, or watch TV. The lodge is a very short walk to the tropical courtyard where all guests can enjoy the pool.
