Charming Rooms Within Old Schoolhouse Surrounded by Nature

John James Audubon’s meticulous documentation of birds helped to carve out his standing as one of America’s foremost naturalists. Adventures Unlimited’s Schoolhouse Inn has a room named after Audubon, and it's fitting—the resort is tucked away from civilization, amid towering oaks and pines peppered with birds’ nests, near Blackwater River State Forest in Milton, Florida. Adventures Unlimited is also a dedicated wilderness retreat, designed for guests looking to enjoy nature. With Options 3 and 4 of this deal, you can explore this wilderness via zipline and kayak tours at Coldwater Creek.

In addition to the Audubon quarters, the other rooms bear the names of famous American authors and naturalists as a tribute to the building’s past as a schoolhouse and its former pupils’ fondness for sleeping on top of books. The Ernest Hemingway room has one queen bed, a room with bunk beds, and a large porch with several rocking chairs—the perfect spot to read a book. The charming Mark Twain room has a queen bed and a seasonal fireplace for chilly winter nights. All eight rooms share a similar design, from hardwood floors to high ceilings and antique furnishings.

Adventures Unlimited in Milton, Florida: Ziplining and Kayaking Through State-Protected Forest

Adventures Unlimited lies just past the official boundary of the Blackwater River State Forest, putting it in an ideal spot for outdoor excursions. In the Double Dip zip line conducted by Zip Adventures, groups of up to eight can soar over a 12 zip line course up to 65 feet above Coldwater Creek's sugar-white sandbars and the surrounding forest. Along the way, observation platforms overlook the verdant hills and streams. The trip culminates in a climb up a massive spiral staircase to the final launching pad, from which one can see Coldwater Creek meander through the forest, forming oxbow lakes and flawless cursive z’s.

As you zipline through the canopies, you might catch a glimpse of canoes and kayaks on Coldwater Creek. Adventures Unlimited coordinates kayak trips that take paddlers on 4- or 7-mile treks down the river. Fishing is also allowed in Coldwater Creek—home to largemouth bass, catfish, and pickerel—for those with valid Florida fishing licenses.

Those needing to eat or gather supplies between outdoor adventures can visit Milton, about a 25-minute drive south.
