Fodor's Review

On the shore of Kings Bay, this two-story plantation-style resort is on 232 acres near nature preserves and rivers. Although the resort's exterior looks like that of a huge Southern mansion, the rooms are more comfortable than palatial. Renovations in 2012 gave the whole place a more modern yet casual look. The spa offers extensive services, and the restaurant's creative, Southern-inspired fare deserves mention (think shrimp and grits or boiled peanut hummus). This resort's on-site dive shop has daily snorkeling excursions into the area's two major manatee hubs, Kings Spring and Three Sisters Springs.
