With three days, two nights, I was able to kayak 3 times, go on two naturalist led expeditions, walk the beach and look for sea shells 3 times. The naturalist/guides are open to suggestions for activities that interest each individual. The food was amazing, featuring fresh produce from their organic garden. The chocolate chip cookies were addictive! The rooms are... More

My extended family and I (my parents; sister and spouse with 11 month old twins; and my spouse and 3 kids, ages 3, 6, and 8) spent a week here in early June. I can't say enough about this beautiful place. It immediately felt like we were being transported to a fantastic hideaway when we arrived at the dock by... More

We appreciate all constructive feedback from past guests. Unfortunately, we do not have any record of these instances.

Also, we send all guests a survey immediately following their stay to solicit their feedback. Therefore, it is very surprising... More

My husband and I stayed here last week. What a great experience - wonderful people - staff and fellow visitors - wonderful food - fresh and local from the lodge's garden. Accommodations are lovely - not fancy but definitely a lodge feeling. The education and trips around the island were led by caring and knowledgable staff. It is a good... More

When my husband and I were waiting for the ferry to take us to the island, the guests at the end of their stay all looked blissed out. I can now see why. Here are some of the highlights: 1. We had a blast. Birding, boat rides, biking, the beach, fishing...we couldn't even find time to do everything. 2. The... More

The reason to stay at LSSI is for its pristine rugged beauty, privacy, and knowledgeable naturalists. The food, libations and accommodations are adequate, but, nothing special. The main building is fabulously rustic. The staff is super gracious and accommodating. True, the wine and beer are included in the cost, but, trust me, bring your own. My 10 year olds tell... More

This was our fifth visit to Little St. Simons Island, but the first since the Paulsen family took over 100% ownership from the Berolzheimers, who had owned LSSI for over 100 years. We were always fans of the rustic, laid-back ethos of the place. We hoped it would not change with the new owners. It hasn't. Here's a warning: Although... More

This was my second time to visit this magical place. I can't say enough good things about the place, the food, or the experience. Perfect for any nature lover. This trip was a birding excursion and it did not disappoint. The ambiance is calming and the other guests have been masters of conversational excellence. The naturalists are knowledgeable and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Prized for its pristine natural beauty, gracious hospitality and secluded worlds-away appeal, Little St. Simons Island is a private barrier island just off the Georgia coast. One of the crown jewels of Georgia's famed Golden Isles, Little St. Simons Island offers 7 miles of private beaches and 10,000 acres of undeveloped wilderness for exploration and relaxation. Privately owned since 1908, Little St. Simons Island has retained the charm and unhurried pace of coastal living. Moss draped live oaks and glistening marshes surround gracious accommodations in six charming cottages for no more than 32 overnight guests. The island is a paradise for nature lovers and offers a host of recreational, naturalist-led experiences including birding, boating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, interpretive tours, beachcombing, fishing and swimming. Accessible only by boat, this extraordinary natural sanctuary-among the last of its kind anywhere- welcomes your discovery. ... more   less
