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".

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
