Prized for its unparalleled 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 well-appointed 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.

Little St. Simons Island is an ideal getaway for individuals, groups, families and family reunions, retreats and business meetings. All meals, beverages including house beer and wine, unlimited use of island recreational gear, and daily-offered interpretive island excursions are included in the overnight rates. The Lodge on Little St. Simons Island has received much acclaim including: "No. 1 Top Resort in the South, No. 3 Top Resort in the US and No. 10 Top Hotels & Resorts in the World by Conde Nast Travelers Readers Choice Awards 2015.  No. 1 Resort in the Mainland U.S." by Conde Nast Travelers Readers Choice Awards 2007; "Gold List" by Conde Nast Traveler 2013; "Adventure Bucket List" by Outside Magazine in 2013; and a 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Your adventure awaits; view our current promotions.

Little St. Simons Island is located off the Georgia coast about midway between Jacksonville, Florida and Savannah, Georgia. Our ferry boat departs from the Hampton River Marina on St. Simons Island, Georgia (reservations are required). Driving distance from the Jacksonville or Savannah airport is about 90 minutes.

The gracious charm of our well-appointed guest accommodations is very much a part of the Little St. Simons Island experience. Six cottages, with rooms for 32 overnight guests, are tucked beneath the oaks in corners of the Island’s main lodge compound. While each guest cottage or guest house is delightfully different in setting, decor and their place in the Island’s history, all rooms are fully air-conditioned and enjoy access to a fireplace. We welcome reservations for a single guest room (for two persons), an entire cottage (ideal for families and small groups up to eight persons), and full-Island visits for up to 32 guests to enjoy the ultimate private island experience.
