The Sparkling Water at Sherlock Springs

Sherlock Springs’ beautiful, fresh water is borne out of the karst landscape – a limestone system prominent throughout the region. Its invigorating water reaches a depth of approximately 30 feet and covers an expanse of 180 feet across before flowing through a cypress swamp and emptying into Sally Ward Spring located in Wakulla Springs State Park. Sherlock Spring isn’t just a place to relax and unwind, it’s a vital habitat to a variety of fish, birds, reptiles, mammals, plants and trees that call this little slice of paradise home.

Create Memories at the Lodge

The recently renovated M.H. Forke Lodge at Sherlock Springs is Wakulla’s newest venue. An ideal size for groups that have up to 120 guests, this beautiful space is picture-perfect. Nestled under a canopy of live oaks, your guests will enjoy views of the spring and wildlife through large picture windows. Our spacious front porch exudes hospitality providing a space for guests to relax and unwind, mingle during cocktail hour or sip coffee in between meeting sessions.  The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace flanked by white-washed shiplap sets the perfect, cozy scene. The rustic charm of the high beam ceiling, cedar columns and farmhouse décor make the Lodge the perfect space to hold your next special event.
