Very nice the man that was on duty when we came in was very nice and helpful! Beautiful grounds! The natural pool was beautiful. The boat docks were in great shape and it was a very nice view of the water.

love the first floor accommodations. Great for having the grandkids stay and meeting new friends. The natural pool and slide was a hit with the kids. The room was always clean and the maids friendly and helpful

Our stay took us back in time. This was our 3rd trip to Chrystal River and every time we have stayed at Kings Bay Lodge. We book it to bring in the New Year. Don't stay if you expect loud music and the party life. It is quiet and serene. The fresh spring swimming pool is unique and beautiful.

“I loved room 10 because it has front of the room parking, is close to the boat slips without being on the end of the property.”
