We just stayed another 7 nights at Tybee Island Inn and had another wonderful time! This was our 4th stay in 2 years. Upon arrival you are greeted with beautiful garden and enchanting moss covered oaks, like walking into a fairy tale. The Inn was immaculate as always, as were the guest rooms. Lloyd has done some great things with the Flamingo Room (our usual room), by adding a larger TV and adding a dresser to the foot of the bed. This is a small room with a narrow spiral staircase going up to the bathroom so if you have a bad back or knees, this room might not be your best choice, however it is the only pet friendly room they have. If you have your pets travelling with you, it's convenient to open the door and let them play in the fenced in garden just off the covered porch area. There are also 2 rocking chairs and a porch swing for you to enjoy along with the private entrance.
A different, delicious breakfast was served each morning and the 3pm desserts that were put out for your convenience was mouth watering! Our favorite of Julie's breakfast was the casserole made with bread. (We send our love and best wishes out to Kathy). We were also surprised when Julie added our dog's names to the welcome sign on the front porch! Nice touch to know that they were welcomed too.
We made it a point on this trip to eat somewhere different for lunch and dinner every day. Tybee Island boasts some great restaurants, Sundae Cafe, The Rock House Bar & Grill, Spanky's Beachside, AJ's and more. For an entirely different experience, check out North Beach Bar and Grill and try the seaweed calamari salad. The Crab Shack is a popular joint and even though we hadn't heard anything good about it, we decided to try it against our better judgement. We didn't like it at all, but we prefer more than boiled shrimp sprinkled with Old Bay seasoning.
Savannah is a short 20 minute drive away and it is beautiful at night. One late evening we were enjoying a walk around Colonial Park Cemetary and accidentally bumped into a ghost tour guide who told us some interesting facts about the cemetary and the best spots to set the Ghost radar off. For dinner in Savannah, we recommend the 17Hundred90 Inn, which might be considered a bit pricey for some but is well worth it. The Casbah Moroccan was a new and delightful experience for us as well, with a short walk to Leopold's Ice Cream afterwards. Belford's in City Market let us sit on the patio with the dogs for lunch (which was great) and they even brought the dogs a bowl of water without our asking them to. The dogs were welcomed in all the art galleries in City Market and on River Street. We also enjoyed Monterey Square with them both in the afternoons and evenings. Savannah being very pet friendly is a plus for us when travelling with our 4 tiny Chihuahuas. Savannah is never boring and there is always something to do. Don't miss Bonaventure Cemetary! Laurel Grove Cemetary is also interesting.
Since Tybee Island doesn't have a pet friendly beach designated, we drove an hour away to Folly Filed, SC where our little ones enjoyed playing on the beach for the first time. The beach was clean and well kept. It was a pleasant drive over so it didn't seem like we were driving that far. We highly recommend this beach for 4 legged fun in the sun!
Staying at Tybee Island Inn is like visiting family for us. Lloyd always has everything ready and we don't have to worry about a thing while we're there. We even got yo meet Sammy the Poodle on this trip! We're still in touch with friends we've made on our previous visits there. To Lloyd, thanks for your hospitality, we appreciate all you do for us. Making reservations with Lloyd is easy and any phone calls or emails are promptly responded to. The staff there is amazing at making everything perfect for us and we hope to see you again in a few months (if not sooner). Thanks for a wonderful stay! Lisa & Bruce, Blossom, Sebastian, Napoleon and Idabell
