Serving beachfront hospitality and family fun since 1957.

The Driftwood Lodge &
The Osprey on the Gulf

For over 6 decades and three generations the Gilmore Family has been welcoming everyone to experience their piece of Paradise.

The Driftwood Lodge and Osprey on the Gulf both sit on prime gulf front beach with amazing views. When you stay on the property, the courtyard is surrounded sea oats, powdery sand and a long boardwalk that connect Driftwood Lodge to The Osprey. Our heated pools sit beside the beautiful gulf, where you can lounge and watch the sun rise or set.

Wrapping around our pools are a mixture of activity areas: barbecue stations, beach front volleyball, a splash pad for the little ones, plenty of lounge chairs to get a tan, picnic areas, and of course the white sandy beaches. We never fail to deliver the panoramic views of the beaches and always have a planned event to keep the family vibe alive.

Having a family atmosphere, The Driftwood Lodge and The Osprey on the Gulf are your family’s next and lifetime place to vacation.
