Stayed here in a Bed & Breakfast and thought it was really cool. This gated little community is a throw back to Mayberry. We enjoyed riding our bikes and swimming in the pool. The Point here was breathtaking! Really cool place to visit!

My wife and I both walked and drove through MSSA. It is unlike any other community we've seen. The Victorian houses take you back in time. We also discovered that some cottages can be rented and hope to stay in one on our next trip...More

Weekend rentals are available in August. You can check them out on the Assembly’s website. There is an auditorium which shows family-friendly movies during the “season,” which ends on August 5th this year.
