Beginning May 13th, 2024, and continuing through Fall 2024, we will be undergoing a lobby and restaurant enhancement project. Our onsite restaurant will remain closed throughout the entirety of the renovation, and there will be periodic closures of our onsite event space, fitness center, and lobby area with an alternative guest check-in experience on property.

The Luxurious Boutique That's a Longtime Favorite

The southern charm was built into The Waterfront Inn, and our legacy has grown with every visitor who has enjoyed our hospitality. Our boutique hotel offers much more than spacious, upscale rooms appointed with all the modern amenities. Our well-manicured property offers stunning vistas of both Lake Sumter and Palmer Legends Championship Golf Course. Enjoy cocktail hour or treat yourself to a delectable dish at Amelia's, our on-site restaurant. Unwind in the outdoor pool, soak in our whirlpool spa, or stroll down to Market Square to enjoy shopping and entertainment. From spending a single night's stay to hosting a full wedding reception or corporate event, The Waterfront Inn is ready to make your time here unforgettable.
