Inn Housed in Old Schoolhouse Surrounded by Nature

John James Audubon’s meticulous documentation of birds helped cement 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 a dedicated wilderness retreat designed for guests looking to enjoy the great outdoors. With this Groupon, you can explore nature via zipline and kayak or paddleboard tours at Coldwater Creek.

In addition to the Audubon quarters, the rest of the Schoolhouse Inn rooms bear the names of famous American authors and naturalists. It’s 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 The Sun Also Rises. The charming Mark Twain room has a queen bed and a large porch that is shared with three other rooms. 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 Blackwater River State Forest—, putting it in an ideal spot for outdoor excursions. In the Double Dip zip line tour conducted by Zip Adventures, groups of up to eight people 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 provide spots overlooking the streams and verdant hills. 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 zip line through the forest canopies, you might catch a glimpse of canoes and kayaks and paddleboards on Coldwater Creek. Adventures Unlimited coordinates kayak trips that take paddlers on 4-, or 7-, or 11-mile treks down the river. Fishing is also allowed on the Coldwater Creek—home to largemouth bass, catfish, and pickerel—for those with valid Florida fishing licenses. Those needing to have a meal or gather supplies between outdoor adventures can visit Milton, about a 25-minute drive south.
