My wife and I stayed for three nights, and it was everything we could have imagined and more. The food was delicious (we enjoyed two dinners and a breakfast in the Great Room), the friendly, accommodating, and cheerful staff made us feel comfortable and at home, the location is unmatched (stepping out our patio door and directly onto the beach never got old,) and the overall vibe of the lodge -- luxurious but unpretentious – was truly something to experience. We travelled with our six month-old daughter -- our first trip with her -- and any reservations we had about doing this were quickly alleviated when we arrived and checked in and saw there was a pack-and-play ready for her in our room. We also travelled with our dog; a water/ food bowl, treats, and a towel in case of rain (it didn't) were waiting for him. I'm happy to say we all slept well every night, in the incredibly comfortable king-size bed! Thank you for everything LBL--this was an experience we won't forget!

We celebrated our anniversary and what a wonderful time we had. The rooms were great. the people were extremely friendly and helpful and the restaurant the best. We've never had such a wonderful and different experience in fine dining as we did there. It was a long travel for us but worth every mile!

We celebrated our wedding at Long Beach Lodge in May 2024. We have been coordinating this special day with Maxeen for over a year ago and everything has been seamless. From the beginning to the day of the wedding, Maxeen was available to answer all of our questions. The coordination of the day off was stress free and everything was exactly how we pictured. We were really impressed by the professionalism of everyone we encountered during our stay. The food was amazing and all of our guest had an amazing time. Our room was spotless, directly on the beach which was perfect for our dog. We can't thank enough Long Beach Lodge for being dog friendly. We can't wait to come back for anniversaries.
