My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Lodge on Little St. Simons Island in April. Definitely a step back in time, the experience comes with all of the amenities. We stayed in the Hunting Lodge in one of two large rooms where the door closed with a string latch. This resort/camp beckons birders and travelers who are interested... More

The Hunting Lodge at LSSI was built by millionaires that owned the island in the 18th and 19th centuries. Now you can stay in the original Hunting Lodge they built or one of the newer cabins. At first glance the price might seem high but once you find out what is included in the fee you will be pleasantly surprised.... More

We had a wonderful family vacation with our 4 yr old daughter.

I cannot say enough good things about this place. It's a place to go and unwind, learn about nature and enjoy the peace and quiet. The food is fabulous. The staff are the most accommodating of any place I've ever been. It's not a "luxury" resort so don't go in with those expectations - the cabins are well appointed but... More

This is an old family hunting lodge and cabins on a private island that provides the most wonderful, nature getaway you can imagine. A staff of naturalists will take you out on bird walks, beach walks, general nature hikes, fishing. The housing and the food are fantastic. The 'character' of the lodge and history are so enticing. Shelves of books... More

Spent 3 days and nights there. Not for everyone, especially those who need to be constantly connected. This is a chance to connect with nature and yourself,Great accommodations,Great food, Great staff. Perhaps the greatest 3 day experience one may have.Don't miss it if you are in tune with nature.

Given all the rave reviews, readers might wonder why mine is not a five. I think it has to do with value for dollar spent. For guests interested in birds, the Lodge on Little St. Simons Island is paradise, similar to Cumberland Island and Greyfield Inn, albeit less crowded (32 guests maximum). The Lodge itself is homey, the naturalists are... More

This is a 10,000 acre island, really a nature preserve, that can accommodate 32 people in a number of small buildings/lodges. You get to and from the island by taking a 10-15 minute boat ride from Saint Simons Island, but you feel like you are on another continent. There are something like 25 full time staff so your every need... More

Prized for its pristine natural beauty, gracious hospitality and secluded worlds-away appeal, Little St. Simons Island is a private barrier island just off the Georgia coast. One of the crown jewels of Georgia's famed Golden Isles, Little St. Simons Island offers 7 miles of private beaches and 10,000 acres of undeveloped wilderness for exploration and relaxation. Privately owned since 1908, Little St. Simons Island has retained the charm and unhurried pace of coastal living. Moss draped live oaks and glistening marshes surround gracious accommodations in six charming cottages for no more than 32 overnight guests. The island is a paradise for nature lovers and offers a host of recreational, naturalist-led experiences including birding, boating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, interpretive tours, beachcombing, fishing and swimming.
