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

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...

Our family did a day trip here and had an absolutely wonderful time! Be sure to get to the marina early - we were 2 minutes late and the boat had already left. We used our time waiting for another boat to arrive to hang out and photograph the Pelicans and comorants. Once on island, we rode safari style through... More

We spent three days at LSSI with two other couples. The Island was beautiful, and the naturalists were outstanding. I am sure I am leaving out some but Rachel, Kirby, Cassandra, and Eric all went above and beyond to accommodate all requests. The Helen house was a perfect place for three couples. Food was wonderful and they graciously accommodated my... More

We spent a few days at LSSI and let me tell you, it was not long enough. The island is remarkably beautiful and the naturalists are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They provide unique opportunities to see nature by biking on a beautiful beach, fishing on the bank or star gazing under a clear night sky. We were looking to get... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful time on this private island oasis. This is a must-go destination for those who love the outdoors and exploring nature. It is amazing how pristine and untouched the island is-a true rarity these days! The island is just truly beautiful-filled with different types of eco-systems from the maritime forest to the beach.... More

We visited Little St. Simon the first week of February. This was our fifth visit over the years. The beauty of the island and the peaceful retreat are unchanged but the hotel operation has made some changes that did not maintain the excellent standards that they had in our previous visits. We felt a little rushed by staff clearing tables... More

As one of our favorite vacation spot, LSSI still exudes the quiet and serenity that soothes the soul. We love the nature adventure led by young naturalists, the deserted beach and long wandering a along the trails. Combine that with an eager staff and gourmet meals, one has a good chance to truly relax. Another plus that can not be... More
