The Cottages are a great destination for friends, couples, or families. They have 3 beds/3 baths and lovely appointed rooms to enjoy this beautiful beach setting. My college friend and I were given personal, guided tours on bikes, hiking and by van to many venues available inside the Park. Ask for Craig, the Naturalist, as he is a wealth of information and made our trip a lasting memory. Mary Ann, The Villages, FL

We can not say enough GREAT things about our stay. We were called 2 days before our check-in to see if there were any special needs like coffee creamer, keep reading. Check-in was smooth as can be. Our cottage (Pelican) was pristine and the staff left us some goodies that was totally unexpected. A bottle of wine with a welcome note, in the fridge was a cheese tray, vegetable tray, bottles of water, soy and half & half creamer. Like I said before, this place did not even look like it ever had guests in it. Everything was just perfect. Fire wood was provided for a nightly fire and if you ran out, all you had to do was call them and more wood was delivered. There were also 6 bikes under the cottage to ride the many trails in the state park which we did riding all the way around Lake Shelby. In closing, our stay could have not been more PERFECT!!!!!

We loved our time at the cottages. My wife and I travelled with a 3 and 5 year old and it was the perfect place to spend 5 days relaxing. Paved bike trails made for easy biking with the less experienced kids (one thing to note, the complimentary bikes are pretty basic and may not be compatible with tow-behind trailers or attachable kids' seats). Easy access to beautiful beaches. We also rented kayaks and had a blast paddling around the lake spotting wildlife such as alligators. Complimentary breakfast at Woodside was a highlight. Thanks for a fantastic time!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review, Adam. I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your first (and, hopefully, not last) visit to Eagle Cottages. We are about guests immersing themselves in our 6,150 acres and exploring our 28 miles of trails and our lakes. It sounds like your stay perfectly aligned with our vision. I hope that I will have a chance to welcome you back on a future visit. Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you.

Definitely a five star vacation! We booked Gulf State Park Cottage on advice from our fellow bike riders not knowing that there was so much more to offer than the best bike trails, from peaceful mornings drinking coffee on the screened porches to exploring nature on the many trails the park has to offer. We were able to enjoy many, many sightings of the Great Bald Eagles going to and from their nest, perching near their nest and bringing branches into and adjusting them to be in the perfect spot. The Eagle’s were by far an amazing experience! The Cottage is comfortable, clean and has everything you need to make you feel like home! The entire staff at The Cottages were very friendly and always went above and beyond! We also enjoyed our delicious, complimentary breakfast every morning at the Woodside Restaurant (wonderful staff) located near the cottages. When we left we knew we would definitely be returning and as a matter of fact have already booked another week in February!
