This is our third visit to LSSI and it gets better each and every time. I have never stayed in the same room twice and every one is equally comfortable and quiet and so relaxing. The staff is the best of anywhere in the world that we've been and the guests are people who are here for the nature and...

We have come to Little St. Simon's Island twice, most recently with our daughter and her husband. This is really a very special place surrounded by beautiful marshes, beaches and trails. You can bike anywhere on the island, kayak, skiff or just walk the beach with no other people around. There are several naturalists that are eager to share their...

We spent 4 nights at LSSI and were delighted with the experience: the staff are amazing and go to great lengths to make your stay perfect. It is an island accessible by boat only so it is a finite group each day. The meals are served family style so you meet interesting and diverse folks. There are folks who are...

Unique, undeveloped natural vacation spot. The weather was rainy and poor the first two days affecting any outdoor activities because there are no dry paths or trails to walk or bike. There are no indoor fitness or exercise opportunities besides ping pong, so if you are use to a lot of activity during the day, you can go stir crazy....

Our experience on Little Saint Simons Island exceeded our expectations. Thousands of acres of unspoiled natural beauty and seven miles of pristine private beach. The on-site naturalists took us on guided wildlife tours, surf fishing, creek fishing, boating, biking, and a night stroll on the beach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Prized for its pristine 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 gracious 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. ... more   less
