Built in 1999 on the north shore of Port Mansfield harbor and then known as Getaway Adventures Lodge, it was a family run business that went well beyond the typical fishing camp.  The current management, led by General Manager Sandra Garza continues the Lodge tradition of treating our guests better than one of the family.

Getaway Lodge is a true step up from the ordinary guide service anglers have grown accustomed to.  Our “Complete Package” includes everything needed to have an enjoyable time with no worries about meals, guides, boats or rooms.  We take care of the details and work so all you do is relax. The Getaway Lodge Guide Staff are United States Coast Guard licensed captains specializing in all aspects of saltwater bay fishing and bird hunting.  Our comfortable lodge, guides and staff are there to make sure whatever you need or want is available. 

After a long day of wading or drifting the lower Laguna Madre catching trophy trout, redfish, and flounder or rocking, relax with all the amenities of home.  We encourage our guests to Getaway and relax.  Whether it is lounging in the pool, watching big screen television, pitching horseshoes or taking an afternoon nap before dinner, Getaway Lodge has the tools necessary for you to relax away your worries. It is up to you to leave the work at home, however if you must mix work and play we have wireless internet throughout the lodge.

Getaway Lodge’s mission is to provide each of our guests with the personal attention you deserve.  With one call, Getaway Lodge will provide you with all the necessities required for a successful fishing experience: accommodations, meals, knowledgeable guides, and great hospitality.

We look forward to being part of your next fishing adventure and welcoming you into our lodge.


Meals are served family style and our Chef and Kitchen Staff are known for their scrumptious gourmet dishes. From a variety of hearty entrées, to decadent and delectable desserts, one thing we will guarantee, is that you won’t go hungry on our watch!
