This is a place where you can do everything or nothing. It is a beautiful barrier island, all imclusive. The daily rate may seem high but not only does it include meals and beer and wine but also all of the activities that you want to participate in, either alone or with a group. There are 12 to 15 naturalists... More

Relaxing and full of natural beauty, LSSI is a great destination if you are comfortable with sharing your vacation with strangers; are looking for something more rustic and untouched; and are a "go-with-the-flow" type. We loved meeting new people and the combination of attending group activities (including a night time beach excursion where we witnesses the rare sight of sea... More

Where do I begin? From the time we arrived at the marina to be transported to the island, we were treated like royalty. After a short boat ride from the marina to the island, we were greeted by the manager on duty at the dock who proceeded to show us around and give us a brief history of the island.... More

Just experienced my first trip to LSSI and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the trip. We stayed 4 nights in the River Lodge which had a great screened in porch facing the inter-coastal river which we enjoyed every evening. The room was spacious with a great view and comfortable bed. All the meals were served in the Lodge which was full... More

This was our fifth visit to the Lodge, and we hope it will not be our last. LSSI is a nature lover's paradise, a beach goer's nirvana, a naturalist's happy place. It isn't cheap! But, if you need to go to an expensive Hotel in the area because it is expensive and because you like to sit around, sun or... More

From the moment you arrive at the Luggage shed and you put the tags on your bags you are in the hands of some very competent and smart people. The team on the island are dedicated to your service and they are very knowledgeable about so many things. Fishing with Kirby (no luck), fishing on the dock and caught 2... More

My husband and I went on one of the day trip's the Lodge offers. We were picked up at 1030 from the Hampton Point Marina on SSI with two other couples. After a quick boat ride we arrived on the island and met by our guide for the day, Cassandra. Let me say she did a great job, despite the... More

We recently returned to this astonishing natural sanctuary on the Georgia coast and our visit was, as always, incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. Perhaps that is the essence of this amazing barrier Island: No matter how many times you visit, the experiences are always new, inspiring and memorable. Yes, the Atlantic coast setting (10,000 acres, 7 miles of beach) is breathtaking,... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Little St. Simons in mid-May. It was a wonderful time of year as the weather was perfect. This is a comfortable "all natural", rustic, no frills resort. The entire staff, from the gentleman who handled our luggage at the ferry dock to take us to the island, to the dining room servers,... More

The members of the staff are friendly, the cabins are fine but there is not much of interest or to do unless you are really in to the "nature thing". I was looking to the fishing but it was to be polite "a bust".
