All storytelling festival events take place on the grounds of Lakeside Inn.
The 135-year-old Lakeside Inn is not just another typical Florida hotel, it stands as a landmark to Florida tourism. Built in 1883, Lakeside Inn is the oldest continuously-operating hotel in the State of Florida. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Lakeside Inn currently features 87 comfortably-appointed guest rooms and suites, The Beauclaire Room for dining, Tremain’s Tavern, the Sunset Pool Bar and The Gatehouse, a shop featuring an enticing array of local art, and crafts.
Because Lakeside Inn is an historic landmark, those with significant mobility challenges may prefer a more modern lodging establishment. Lakeside Inn has no elevators and many lodging rooms require stairway access. All festival events are accessible.
Must state reservation is for the Florida Storytelling Festival to receive the discounted room rate.
