"A world away -- just around the corner. Re-discover why you came to Florida in the first place" That’s the feeling that you will get when you stay at the Ferndale Lodge.
THE FERNDALE LODGE is located in the south end of the small town of Sebastian Florida. We are right on the Indian River, just across from the Sebastian Inlet and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Although not a "resort" in the current sense of the word, the Ferndale Lodge does offer many "natural" amenities that will help you to relax, unwind, and enjoy Florida the way it used to be.
There are over 65 tall palm trees on our property as well as almost a dozen very large old river oaks.
Our front yard features two very large and colorful "bottlebrush trees" surrounded by several native orange trees and some unusual coconut palm trees.
A shuffle board court , picnic tables, and barbecue grills are all there for the enjoyment of our guests.
The back yard of the FERNDALE LODGE covers almost 200’ of grass covered river frontage. Our 250’ fishing pier and boat dock includes 8 boat slips (two are covered) with water and electricity provided. Guests are welcome to fish off the dock or just sit and relax on any one of the several comfortable benches. Have an early morning coffee and watch the sun come up over the spoil islands.
We offer FREE boat slips to our guests, as well as FREE canoe and row boats to those adventurous to use them. The Indian River is shallow along the Sebastian coastline -- about 2 to 3 feet of water off our dock. We can accommodate boats up to 20’ .
Public launch ramps are within 1/2 mile of the lodge. We have adequate parking for boat trailers on our property. Several nice uninhabited "spoil islands" lie just off our property - they make excellent picnic areas and are great places for kids to explore. Weather permitting, its an easy quick canoe ride from the Lodge to the Islands.
The Intercoastal waterway is just to the East of the spoil islands with plenty of deep water for almost any size boat.
For those less nautically minded, the FERNDALE LODGE offers you something’s not often found in Florida: PEACE, QUIET, AND SHADE.
Situated throughout the Lodges’ backyard you will find several comfortable hammocks, lawn chairs, more picnic tables, a nice old wooden swing, and a cool and breezy shaded patio/picnic area.
Watch the River go by, and lose your troubles in the cool Florida breezes.
Enjoy the Quiet
