WaterColor Inn & Resort

WaterColor Inn & Resort is a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond boutique hotel, nestled on nearly 500 acres of sugar-white sand beach. Surrounded by 1,400 linear feet of beachfront and pine forests alongside Western Lake, the state’s second-largest naturally occurring coastal dune lake, WaterColor Inn & Resort offers deluxe accommodations designed by David Rockwell at the newly renovated 60-room Inn, where every guestroom has a view of the Gulf of Mexico and a pair of Adirondack chairs on the patio (and on the first floor, a private outdoor cabana shower). Perfectly encapsulating the spirit of an intimate beach getaway, while still providing the functionality necessary for a family vacation, the freshly redecorated beachfront rooms bring the outdoors mere footsteps from the sand. From the soft linens to the spa-inspired toiletries, every well-appointed room has been furnished for the full comfort of the guest. One of the benefits of St. Joe Club & Resorts owning this distinctive hotel property is that guests also enjoy access to a bevy of the private membership club’s amenities, including private golf and beach club access; complimentary bicycle use; kayak, canoe, pontoon boat, and YOLO Board rentals; beach bonfire services, for which a St. Joe Club & Resorts staff member arranges all details of a beachside bonfire, from preparing the fire and setting up beach chairs to providing fixings for s’mores; and much more.
