Runaway Bay Lodge - 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. We have 4 separate units on our property, including 2 cabins and 3 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 Vegan, Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian Meal Options, Moxibustion, Kundalini, Tantra, Energy work and other holistic well-being services, Small Group 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. Please simply use caution and do not attempt to disturb the animals or their environment.

Anniversary getaway 420
So I found this place on line. It's our 25th anniversary so I wanted to do something different. It's funny I've been actually coming to this same camp ground for 20plus years and never knew about this little gem. I'm a big 420 guy and use it medically so I love this place is 420 friendly and it's clothing optional which we have never experienced. I love the idea and the amount of freedom in connecting with the out doors the way we were intended to be. Of course we only did the clothes optional at night when No one awake and loved it. The other guests there were awesome had great conversations and always great to meet new folks with different walk of like. Kennedy was an awesome guy he owns the place its just all love at runaway bay. Our cabin was the bigger of the 2 and was really surprised at how awesome this place was. If your looking for a change of scenery this is it. Our new friends Tom and Teresa were awesome as well, treated us great and accommodated any questions or needs we may have had. Check it out great time. We will be going back

Waterfront Minimalist Micro-Yurt
Friendly and welcoming vibe! The hot tub and outdoor shower were phenomenal. We stayed in a spacious four person tent that provided a comfortable living room and bed.

Is love enough? Not really...
The good: The place is quiet, has a rustic charm, a good vibe and a clean hot tub. The not so good: The village is in need of some major love. The pictures aren't what the place looks like today. We stayed in Ome Sweet Ome yurt, and it had patches on the yurt itself, as well and it was in need of a good cleaning. The floor was wet maybe from the ac unit? I'm not sure. The heater wasn't really more than a cosmetic heater ( if there was heat, it was not alot). As for the rest of the village, the dock boards are old, and there were screws coming out of them where people are walking. The dock into the lake was gone due to hurricane but that wasn't mentioned. The railing was rope and not safe at all. The common room where the fridge, pool room and kitchenette are located were worn and stained, most of the handles for the sink and other water sources were gone and you had to turn on and off a valve on the pipe itself. We ordered a couples dinner package @ 7-ish, but ended up eating with another couple around 8:30, just to eat. The food was good but mostly cold and no dessert. IMO, this was misadvertised as the place looks very different from its pics and so many things needed repair. If you want to use that as part of the Hippie charm, I think then you need to be honest about what people are buying. It's run down, but runs on love. I don't think the dinner was worth the money, and I would not go back due to the current conditions. The Hippie vibe is not enough for the price.

I don’t know where to begin with this review! Perhaps how easy Kennedy made even before we checked in? He upgraded us to the bigger cabin (thank you) so we could sit on the screened porch w our dog. Or he accommodated us with our dinner the night of check in (Friday during lent, no meat) it’s difficult to begin to say how amazing our stay was! Our cabin was absolutely perfect! From the cute front door, the patio to the bed which I slept remarkably well on! Breakfast in the morning on our screened in patio was also amazing! Drinking our coffee overlooking the lake with our dog by our side. Just a beautiful experience! The close proximity to the nature conservation. Area was close enough for me to walk (and then walk about and sit in the hot tub!) my husband attacked the trails on his dirt bike (also nice and close) And the massage was out of this world! We had an absolutely stellar vaca at our home away from home! I was finally able to relax, read a book & stare endlessly at the lake! Couldn’t have asked for better weekend retreat!

Perfect Chill Escape from the City
We had such an incredible time staying with Kennedy at Runaway Bay! He has done such an incredible job creating an inclusive escape that encourages community and peace. The view from the dock is incredible, and curling up on a couch to watch the sun set and chat with other visitors was such a highlight from our trip. Kennedy is an incredible host - he is so friendly and welcoming, and really took the time not only to meet us but to also introduce us to other guests as well. We spent some time exploring the area and spring hopping at Salt Springs, Silver Glen, and Juniper Springs, and Kennedy provided some awesome recommendations for local spots and places to check out! We will 100% be recommending Runaway Bay to our friends - and are already looking into coming back with a group of people to rent out more of the space for a long weekend away from the city.
