About Jane and Jack Brunson

Jack is an Elba native and works locally with an insurance company. Jane is a CPA and serves on the Elba City Council. We enjoy the benefits of small town life and enjoy welcoming visitors to Elba for business or pleasure.

Jane and Jack Brunson purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Jane and Jack Brunson chose Elba

This property on the banks of Pea River has been the home to members of the extended Brunson family for over 100 years. When the house became vacant, we thought it was ideally situated for a small Bed & Breakfast lodge to provide much needed overnight accommodations in Elba.

What makes this lodge unique

Conveniently located just off US Hwy 84 near downtown Elba, this spot on the banks of the river gives The Lodge a remote and peaceful atmosphere. The small mid-century house has original pine paneling with a completely renovated bath and kitchen and a new full bathroom, along with freshly painted and decorated rooms. Free internet is available. If you have time for recreation, The Lodge is within walking distance of the public boat launch on Pea River, and canoe and kayak rentals are available year-round by reservation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful place! This is the first time in many years, while visiting our parents in the nursing home, that we felt at home again. Your lodge represents the warmth and charm of Elba's past. It's the perfect blend of a country lodge with contemporary updates. Love the interior colors! All of the breakfast, laundry, and toiletry provisions were just right!

We had such a nice time here and felt so spoiled. Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Elba because my family has roots there from way back and I wanted to visit the area and especially my Grandfather’s grave. Jane and Jack have a beautiful little place - we loved Jane’s sense of style! And she spoiled us with great breakfast and snack foods, we thoroughly enjoyed them. The beds were very comfortable and we slept great. Thanks to Jane and Jack for making our stay so nice. We really hated to leave and Definitely want to come back some day.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (4 kids) stayed here and it was an absolute great stay. The lodge was comfortable for everyone and very clean. A 5 minute walk to a great kayaking/canoeing place at a reasonable price and a 5 minute drive into town. The owners checked on us and made sure everything was good. Nice scenery, fire pit, basketball, and the house is has everything you need to stay. Upon arrival we had fresh fruit and other foods (breakfast foods) for the stay waiting for us. We are already planning our next visit. If you are planning on visiting this area or close by this is your place to stay.

Great place for family stay close to Fort Rucker

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights during a family members week of warant Officer graduation. We also traveled with our 90 year old grandfather, so this was so much better than staying in a hotel. Much more comfortable! The breakfast items were a great touch. The owners even checked in a couple times and offered to go to the store to get us whatever we needed. They did everything to ensure we were comfortable and happy with our stay. We couldn’t have been happier.

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. It was about a 30 minute drive to the army base, but the area of Elba felt much nicer than staying in Daleville. It was also nice to be able to grill out at the house and have dinner/lunch a few times at the house vs eating out everyday.

On another trip we would stay there again.

Thank you for all your hospitality!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your place. Its pine paneling reminds us of a home we used to have and which we loved. It was comfy and homey, yet has all the modern conveniences also. The treats you provided were an extra wonderful treat, especially for the grandchildren who took turns most nights sleeping in the third bedroom. We will likely be contacting you again when my husband’s sisters will be needing a place in late April whenever we have our annual week of Miller reunion.

I would like to have had time here to get more acquainted with more of your extensive library of books. However, dueing the daytime we were mostly over at our place in Bullock Community.

We will probably leave this morning around 10:00, depending upon how fast we can get moving.

Many thanks, Gaylier Miller

Cute, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family & I were extremely comfortable during our visit. I would recommend this lodging to anyone looking to stay in the area. It is so much better than staying in a hotel especially for the price. The house was clean, updated, and Jane was very hospitable.

Panama City, South Walton and Destin beaches
Car: necessary

We're just a 2 hour drive from Panama City Beach and the Beaches of South Walton, making this a good stop the night before your vacation check-in. We're also only 30 minutes south of Troy University, so The Lodge is a great place to stay for football weekends. Visiting a family member stationed at Fort Rucker? We're located about 30 miles west of Fort Rucker, and it's an easy 40-45 minute drive.
