“Perfect golf destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

We have stayed at The Lodge for over 10 years, and find its quality and service continually of the Excellent/consistent nature - the employees are very well trained and seem to enjoy their jobs. Recalling our name from previous visits is a nice touch .Our Room (#3) had it' own large deck with comfortable furniture, and the room (as are all Lodge rooms) very spacious, well equipped and comfortable - more like a small apartment. The golf courses are always in top shape, although leading up to the McGladry PGA event there is "cart path only" on the Seaside - check before you go, as this is easily the jewel of the property and a "must play". The Plantation and Retreat courses would be Four Star any place. The food at the Lodge is super and the Cloister is only a 15 minute drive away with many more great eateries. If you like to ride, be sure to take a beach trail ride - many other activities for almost any taste.

Room Tip: Ask for a view allowing you to see and listen to the bagpiper each evening around dinner time.

I attended a golf outing of 16 senior duffers at the Lodge. The accommodations were first class and the staff was well trained in taking care of the frequent traveler. The golf was challenging and target golf so take a lot of balls. The fore caddies varied in their quality. The pro shop staff was experienced and helpful. You should do this once but understand it will be expensive. Personally, I prefer the Greenbrier for value.

One of the prettiest rooms we've ever stayed in anywhere! Lodge and room decor would appeal to the most discerning tastes. We had reservations at the restaurant there for dinner, but we cancelled them because we were enjoying the fabulous river view, atmosphere, and food in the bar. During our stay, we enjoyed the beautiful golf courses, the luxurious spa, and one of the prettiest beach clubs anywhere. Breakfast in Colt & Alison was delicious.. Everyone we encountered was friendly and anxious to please.

Room Tip: You could hear the air conditioning units for the lodge from our room overlooking the golf course (o...

My wife and stayed a long weekend for golf. Rooms are large and very well appointed. Staff is very well trained but at time a bit over bearing, overall very good service. Golf courses; Sea Side and Plantation course are immaculately maintained. Liked Sea Side over Plantation. The courses are basically flat with water and bunkers for challenge. Neither course incredibly challenging and definitely not brutal just a very nice course to have a relaxing round very enjoyable. Pace was good for resort golf. Restaurant are nice, menu nothing special, food is a bit over rated and pricey. The breakfast was so so not much imagination presentation and service very good. Shuttle to get you back and forth to the beach side property with there other restaurant. Lot of local restaurants to choose from off the property great variety in St. Simons and Brunswick.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor have the better facilities.

You can't help but feel like a king when you enter the Lodge at Sea Island. Wish stayed longer than the one night!

Room was perfect; bed very comfortable. Beautiful view. We were in room 5.

Cocktails on the porch were my favorite part of evening. Certainly recommend making a reservation for dinner. Dinner was delicious at the Oak Room and again all service staff were very welcoming and friendly. I was surprised at menu pricing especially wine - there wasn't the mark-up I expected. Recommend fried oysters in the shell as a started and beef short ribs.

Golf was just as luxurious. A slight hiccup in the pro-shop not having us booked for our tee time was corrected with no delay to our schedule. Our caddie Gallary was exceptional and improved our scores!

If not familiar with country club life, you'll be most impressed with the locker rooms. Full bar and dining service available. We received same level of service as members! Not so at Pinehurst for example.

My room with the river view is on of the finest appointed rooms I can remember. The beamed ceiling with the pale blue inset was an unexpected detail that elevated the appearance of the room to spectacular. The ceiling fan gave it a true beach feel.
The grounds were perfectly maintained making walking to the beach club a pleasure.
if you can make it out to Colt and Alison at the Plantation course have their signature dish the Filet Au Poivre.

I've been to some nice places but didn't know what nice was until here. From check in to check out, the staff went above and beyond to make sure that this felt like a vacation.

The room was mighty big and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The rain forest shower head is always a great hit. The freshly made cookies and milk with turn down ended the days on an even brighter note.

For the golfers, as this is a golf "lodge", I played sea side with the first tee time of the morning on Saturday. The course was in amazing shape with almost no ball marks on the greens and the fairway bunkers pristine.

There is shuttle service that runs to the cloister every 30min.

See the Cloister review for the resort review.
