In 1940, Tommy Sabin, a New York banker and frequent Ponte Vedra Inn & Club guest, purchased 600 feet of oceanfront property from the Inn's parent company, Ponte Vedra Corporation. On this prime real estate, located 1.5 miles south of the Inn, Sabin built an independent seasonal hotel, The Innlet, which offered economical rates, 32 small but attractive guest rooms and an overall pleasing environment. Four years later, the hotel was sold to Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and began operating under Inn management. With its pleasant, casual atmosphere, The Innlet became a gathering place for the younger crowd. In 1947, 30 apartments are added. While ownership changed hands several times over the next two decades, The Innlet continued to be managed by Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, with guests enjoying access to the amenities of both hotels.
In 1969, hotel operations ceased when The Innlet was purchased by Land Corporation of America. In 1989, The Lodge & Bath Club, a luxurious, 66-room oceanfront hotel, opened. In 1997, Ponte Vedra Corporation purchased this property and changed its name to The Lodge & Club. As in previous decades, operations at the hotel were managed by Ponte Vedra Inn & Club with guests enjoying access to the amenities of both establishments. In recognition of The Lodge & Club’s superior quality, the property received both the coveted AAA Four-Diamond Award and Mobil Four-Star Award in 2000.
In 2000, the Lodge began an extended phase of renovation and enhancement to add to its overall appeal that continues to present day. All rooms and suites, the lobby, indoor and outdoor dining spaces, banquet and meeting space, poolscapes and the fitness area were renovated and upgraded. A new portico entrance, children’s playground, oceanfront lawn and fire pit were added. The State of Florida recognized the Lodge with the prestigious Palm Award for voluntarily adopting a variety of green practices to reduce waste and conserve natural resources while the room renovations were recognized by the Florida Builder’s Association with its Award for Design Excellence.
