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 Alabama

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!

Beautiful home on the Pea River

  • 5 of 5

Jack and Jane have a wonderful home here in Elba, AL. Everyone enjoyed staying here. Jack was on top of a little internet issue and had it resolved that day. Breakfast was an unexpected bonus which was wonderful. We'll be back again.

We went to the lodge for two nights to watch our son graduate warrant officer school at Ft. Rucker.

Jack and Jane were terrific hosts. The breakfast and coffee were great. The house was clean and everything we needed. If we are going that way in the future I would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone.

We left behind a photo camera disc and Jane mailed it to our home for which we are thankful.

It is a great place to stay you will enjoy it.

Excellent property and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. I like to take photographs and there were so many blooming flowers and great scenery to shoot at. Eat at The Rabbit Hole in Elba and the Red Brick Oven in Enterprise only 20 mins down the road. Good small town shopping in Enterprise. Jack was a great host. He asked what we wanted for our breakfast and got us exactly what we asked for and more! This was a girls getaway weekend for us and it couldn't have been nicer. Thanks Jack!!

A great place to stay. Very clean, updated and comfortable, and everything you need is there!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Elba from Chicago on business to visit with National Security. I was meeting with Lodge owner Jack Brunson, company president, who suggested I stay at the Lodge. I was just there for one night, but would have liked to stay for several days. The house is very neat, clean and homey, knotty pine paneling reminds me of nice cabins in WI and MI, where we vacation. Everything is updated and works, and its very comfortable. I only regret I couldn't stay longer so I could explore the area.

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.
