It is really a unique experience to have this large an area, so few people and so much wildlife. We had a great time. The staff is excellent. The facilities are wonderful and the food is fantastic. We really had a great time, even in the midst of crazy corona time.
My husband and I decided to celebrate my birthday by spending 3 nights at The Lodge. Our stay was amazing from the boat ride in to the boat ride out. Our excursions consisted of viewing baby bald eagles, fishing, hiking (amazing) & bike riding. All of the naturalists were fantastic, but Tyler was the best by far! He was knowledgeable, personable and you could tell that he loved his job at The Lodge. The food was yummy and plentiful. There is the ability to do laundry, which was great! We stayed in a room in the Hunting Lodge and it was spacious and quiet. The Lodge also provided all if the extras you may need such as bug spray, sunscreen, rain boots, etc. You can tell that customer service is their top priority. We cannot wait to return!
Little St. Simons is truly a special place. The staff is so friendly, accommodating, and fun to be around. Each person is incredibly knowledgeable and it's easy to tell that they love what they do - from the naturalists to the chefs and the dining staff. The food is absolutely delicious - every meal we had seconds and after each meal a naturalist comes in to tell you what the proposed activities are for the morning/afternoon/evening. Of course, they encourage you to go explore on your own if you so wish. The naturalists are exceptional. On the activities, they'll show you different birds, and take you to unique spots where you can see all types of animals (especially birds) and go fishing in beautiful areas. My wife and I had an amazing time, and are excited to return again. There really is no place like it, so go explore it!…
We had heard a lot about The Lodge on LSSI but we were overwhelmed by the experience. Many remote lodges laud their conservation efforts but there is no retreat experience that quite matches LSSI. As many have said it is like camp for adults. Despite the massive mosquito population we had a tremendous amount of fun seeing animals in the wild and learning about the unique animal and plant life on the Georgia barrier islands.
Wonderful trip all the way around. The activities broadened our horizons and the food was outstanding. My four children ages 4-14 enjoyed every minutes and have asked several times when we will be returning. I would not hesitate going as a couple or a family.
