So happy I made it to Little St. Simons, it was an unforgettable experience which I hope to repeat. Only stayed two nights but I managed to take a great bike ride to the huge, hard packed sandy beach, a naturalist tour of the island and a kayak tour down an inlet. The accommodations were wonderful in the cedar lodge, a large comfortable room with a shared living room, deck and screened porch. Food was tasty, really enjoyed the duck and daily homemade cookies, kind of rich Southern cuisine with yummy biscuits and gravy but with all the activities, you can work it off.
Staff and management caters to all your needs and will arrange if possible any tour or outing to please you. Initially thought it was pricey but with all the food, activities, and alcoholic beverages included along with the island's beauty it was worth it. I would have ranked it excellent except for the bugs! They do not aerial spray on the Island, just try to control ecologically. However, they do provide plenty of bug spray everywhere.
