Whether communing solo with nature, making memories with the next generation, or connecting the dots at your next corporate retreat, Newell Lodge and Resort at the Okefenokee is the perfect place to relate, relax, and engage with life.
Children love playing underneath the old Live Oak Trees, with the cool, dark canopies and draped Spanish moss, while adults secretly enjoy the big porch swings. Newell Lodge accommodates family vacations for all ages.
Families of Wiregrass Georgia love to return to the area for annual reunions. Newell Lodge looks and feels like home, allowing travellers as well as locals to relax and enjoy one another’s company. The cook-in kitchen in our cottages accommodates smaller gatherings, but big family reunions held in our Gathering places must be catered on-site. We recommend local specialties such as Barbecue with Brunswick Stew or a Low Country Boil, though a family-style buffet is always a crowd pleaser.
Located only 45 minutes from Jacksonville, Florida, Newell Lodge is available to host corporate retreats for teams that want to get away from the distractions of the city and settle in to get the real work done. Reserve one cottage or the entire Resort for your team. Our rustic meeting spaces are wired for wifi, and our hospitality consultant will assist you in planning an itinerary designed to enhance personal and professional growth, as well as arranging catering for delicious meals. At your request, we are happy to engage speakers, entertainment, or presenters for your retreat.
