We chose this trip carefully, fully aware of both the positive and negative comments provided by some visitors on this website. We knew it would be secluded and probably buggy, but located in a beautiful, enchanting and peaceful area we love. If you want a trip to virgin forest off the coast of Georgia, if you want good food grown... More

LSS is a nature lover's paradise. I would go back tomorrow, if I could. Empty beaches, bird watching, fishing, beautiful pool, nature walks, and just relaxing on one of the most beautiful islands in the world make LSS a destination spot...but there are a few problems in paradise. If you are a foodie, you may be unhappy. I would equate... More

This is a place to hike and relax. Live Oak and Palmetto forests, marshes and wetlands, and ocean beach--great for birding, hiking, snaking (good bunch of diamond backed rattlers on the island for those who have an interest in reptiles.) The resident naturalists generally sponsor morning and afternoon treks to various spots on the island. The food is excellent. We... More

This was my second visit, my first was over 25 years ago as a day tripper from Sea Island. Not much has changed in the intervening years and, believe me, it's a good thing. This time I was with my 20 year old son on his Spring break. We went in mid March and there were no mosquitos, we were... More

We are so glad you came back to visit Little St. Simons Island and chose to stay a few nights this time.

Little St Simons Island is the place to go if you want to be in a pristine natural environment enhanced by the simple hunting lodge and the cabins/cottages for lodging. Quiet, dark enough to see more stars than in most other places, unpretentious guests and staff...maintained trails, miles of untrammeled beach, birds, ponds, views out over the marsh from your...

This was our first stay at LLSI. Everything about the experience was spectacular. The setting is rustic, and if you desire a TV or radio, you are out of luck. While I thought this would be an issue for me, the lack of those distractions proved fantastic. I did, however, have internet so I could catch up on work when... More

It is really great to hear that you enjoyed your first visit to Little St. Simons Island. Sounds like you were able to see a lot of interesting wildlife during your stay. As you found, much of the wildlife like the armadillos thrive here due to the lack of development and vehicle traffic. I'm so happy to hear that you... More

Don't come here expecting granite counters in the baths, fancy walkin showers, 1000 thread count sheets. There's no golf, no tennis, no tv. (There is wifi.). What there is is a private island that holds only 32 guests at a time, a few day trippers on some days, no cars others than staff trucks, 7 miles of private beach, and... More

My husband and I recently stayed at LSSI for three days and two nights and began talking about our return trip almost from the day we arrived!! The staff was friendly and accommodating--I don't like fish and they prepared thoughtful and delicious dishes for me at every meal, not just a bowl of pasta. We prefer to adventure alone and...
