Runaway Bay Lodge is a place where Love and Magic Happen - After the 4 mile trip through The Lake George State Forest, you will pass two small RV campgrounds of Pine Island. Runaway Bay Lodge is the first private property past The Pine Island RV Campground, on the right side of the street. OUR PROPERTY IS NOT LOCATED IN THE CAMPGROUND. The area is small and, outside of the RV campground, there are only about 30 permanent houses, in the neighborhood. We have 4 separate units on our property, including 2 cabins and 2 yurts, Each cabin and yurt is set up with only one bed, in each. We are a perfect spot for solo journeyers and couples. Larger groups can rent multiple units. We also host 3rd party retreats for up to 12 total guests. We do allow cannabis smoking on our property, in the common areas outside of the tents and cabins. We offer our exclusive Magic M Meditations, Yoga, Plant Based Meal Options, Reiki, Moxibustion, Kundalini and Tantric Energy work and other spiritual services and Retreats, Boat Tours and Boat Rentals. Use of a private vehicle is required. The property is on a natural 46000 acre lake that is connected to The Atlantic Ocean by The St Johns River. This location offers abundant wildlife refuge. This can be exciting, but dangerous. Please do not feed or approach the wildlife. You may see alligators, snakes, otters, manatees, as well as several species of fish and birds, including, but not limited to, american bald eagles, egret, heron, seagulls, bass, mullet, crappie, bluegill and more. We have a great 230 foot fishing pier that you can enjoy most of these animals from, relatively safely. Please simply use caution and do not attempt to disturb the animals or their environment.

We stayed in one of the cabins and it was very peaceful and relaxing. Christina and Kennedy are amazing people and are so welcoming and inviting. We did the the extra add ons and it was definitely an unique experience. We will be back to enjoy more of the property after the baby is born. If you’re looking for a relaxing, laid back adventure, this place is a must!! It is a judgment free zone, so come as your are !!

A place to leave all worries behind and fully recharge. Amazingly located right on the lake, we had awesome time. We spotted an alligator and some flying fish. The hosts are amazing and cooked a delicious dinner (my son finished the whole salad plate, which never happened before). The site has all amenities one would need.

Beautiful views wildlife and great surroundings. He was very accommodating on my little service dog. We are already booking our next visit thanks. This is a must do in Florida

Runway Bay is a fun getaway. The hot tub and pool table are such great amenities! We enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and it was very comfortable.

Beautiful view, not what I expected
The positives: Beautiful view. Felt like we were in a bay near the ocean. Watching the sunset and listening to the small waves was relaxing. The kitchen and room had everything we needed. The tiki bar area offered a lot of activities and options. We ended up watching one of the DVDs from there in our room. We didn’t end up using a kayak but were glad they were available. Lots of places to sit. The dock offered a place to fish. We also were happy to take advantage of the hot tub. Negatives: This place has a ton of potential and maybe it was in a better state as some point but it could use some repair and upkeep. The photos in the listing are very nice but didn’t quite match up with the state of the place. The “beautiful decay” style was cool but taken a bit far. Rotting wood in the deck and buildings and holes in screens etc. I was by no means expecting luxury and generally appreciate a wild, rustic environment. The inside and outside areas could have been cleaner. The cabin did have a mildew smell and faint smoke smell in the cabin. The bed linens smelled strongly of detergent fragrance. The floor just inside the front door was squishy in a spot and felt like it could fall through. Most concerning is that it is both clothing optional AND has cameras in places where guests would be hanging out (nude). There are also signs about audio surveillance on the premises. We noticed these signs upon arrival. I understand having cameras near the entrance but… Hopefully this helps

Laid back, unique, fantastic hosts
What a great weekend getaway. Peaceful lake views. Kennedy and his wife couldn’t have been more pleasant and accommodating. They have a great vibe, and it translates to their cabins. We hung out by the fire pit, did karaoke in the bar area, and chose the dinner option, which I would strongly recommend. Kennedy’s wife makes excellent jerk chicken. Wonderful spot for a laid back and unique weekend, and fantastic hosts!

Lakeside cabin serenity
This cabin is so beautifully situated! Lakeside mornings with coffee (especially when the breeze picks up and keeps the summer bugs away), gorgeous hot tub sunset views, and intentional space! We stayed in the yurt previously, and really appreciated the AC respite of the cabin this time around in the summer heat. We had the place to ourselves and it was so serene. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Great couple's getaway! Lakefront property with a gameroom/bar, fishing poles & kayaking available. The hosts are wonderful, they dont live on site so you have privacy yet a phone call away if you need them. Be sure to ask about their Spa/Wellness services. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a refreshing weekend. Tiffany

My partner and I love this spot. Lakefront sunset views, wildlife all around, cute little kitchenette setup, lots of cool shared spaces around the place, a fabulous hot tub, and ultimately a spot cared for with a lot of love by Kennedy & Christina with a lovely history. If you're into all that, come! We loved the yurt we stayed in which was perfectly adorned, but if you want a cabin they have those too. What a special place! We will surely be back

Explore away from it all
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. The campsite was lovely and comfortable and Kennedy and Christina have a million different talents that they offer on-site to add some self-discovery into your experience. They are a unique couple and will make your stay unique as well! Loved watching sunsets in the hot-tub, enjoying the outdoor and indoor showers and kayaking over the beautiful Lake George. Plenty of springs and nature trails in the area to add to your experience.

Not private but great owners
This is a personal lake house, It's a shared property with a lake house and 2 tents that may be rented out as well and lots of gators and snakes. The dock is very weak, some parts of the deck as well so be careful. So if you don't mind sharing a small space and minimum service then it's great, my boys ( 7,15,15 ) actually liked it though. The owners are very nice however the lady owner went above and beyond. We booked Thurs-Sunday however we ended up leaving Saturday instead.

We loved Runaway Bay! Christina, Kennedy and Shiloh were extremely friendly and we enjoyed hanging out with them and other guests at the tiki bar. Our cabin was very comfortable. If you want a laid back vacation, come here. If you expect a 5 star ritzy hotel, look elsewhere.

Coolest Lakefront FL Property!
This land was incredibly remote, unique, and beautiful. The owners have relationships with their neighbors and fellow community members and personally connect you with them for things like the wildlife tour or other things. This place is for those that enjoy the simple things and are looking to release themselves from societal expectations and enter a space of acceptance that appreciates wellness and exploration.

This was a great spot for my boyfriend and I! He got some fishing in, and I got some relaxing in! The lake view was breathtaking at sunset! And the hot tub was a bonus after dinner! The outside shower was nice as well and it fits two people so it was fun to take a shower outdoors with my boyfriend! Rustic and very outdoorsy.... Perfect for our personalities! Would book again!
