BEAUTIFUL & CHARMING HISTORIC COTTAGE~ROMANTIC!

St. Simons Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Situated at the entrance to the Sea Island causeway, Black Banks Plantation is a unique and charming neighborhood, named for the original Black Banks Plantation house, built in 1801. The Cottage which was built in 1920 as a carriage house for the Plantation, is nestled a short distance from the main house, amid large, old live oaks and overlooks your very own private heated pool, outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace. All for your EXCLUSIVE use!

And now a special coupon for Black Banks Cottage guests to use at the unique jewelry design studio of 'Gold & Grace'

Features & Amenities: The house was completely renovated and decorated within the last several years and offers all the luxury, warmth and charm needed to make the most of a stay on this wonderful island, including upstairs deck and downstairs courtyard, luxury linens, fully functional kitchen and top-of-the-line Bosch washer & dryer! Enjoy this vacation paradise any time of year; mild winters are perfect for a swim in the heated pool and a snuggle by the fireplace.

(Quickly becoming the 'go-to' spot for a romantic celebration, we have been delighted at the number of anniversaries shared at the Cottage! And with a number of Honeymoons already scheduled, it appears that romance is truly in the air!)

And the romantic and relaxing options are many! Swim, cook outside on the large, built-in gas grill, throw a log on the gas-assisted outdoor fireplace and relax or put on your party shoes and head out for a gracious dinner at the nearby Cloister or Halyard's before going to Ziggy Mahoney's for dancing!

When you're done, come 'home' to this quiet, comfortable and charming alternative to the busy condo scene.

Other Activities: We are located several miles from the beautiful beach at East Beach at the Coast Guard Station and across the causeway from Sea Island beaches and the beautiful Cloister resort (membership required for entry).

Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I love to stay at Black Banks Cottage. It is clean, cozy, and close enough...but far enough away ~ allowing privacy, great bike rides, great food, and fun in the sun. We plan to make this a yearly trip celebrating happiness! It really does feel like our home away from home!

GREAT WEEK, BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at the Black Banks Cottage. The pool and grounds are lovely and so peaceful. The cottage has everything a couple could need for a great vacation. The bed and linens were fabulous. There are multiple outside seating areas and the pool is lovely and secluded. We highly recommend the Black Banks Cottage.

FIRST TIME AT ST. SIMONS

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful place with privacy-didn't even miss the beach, which is a bit of a distance from the cottage. There is a Harris Teeter and a CVS for every need, very close-by.
The cottage was delightful and welcoming. I was able to combine my school work, wedding obligations and relaxation very nicely. Highly recommend.
The outdoor dining area was exceptional, and the private pool was extremely relaxing.
The listing was accurate. We did have a difficult time with the dryer which had a broken handle making it difficult to open. The property was very clean and attention to detail was right on target.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! It was a pleasure to have you stay at Black Banks ;-) So sorry the dryer handle was broken! (The part is in and has been replaced but that was a nuisance, I'm sure.)
We appreciate your visit and your review and hope you'll be able to come again another time!
Best wishes,
Kate

Our daughter and brand-new son-in-law spent their first night together in this beautiful little cottage. Before you even get inside, the outside is incredibly charming! The inside is delightful and perfect for two. A great getaway for a couple. They loved it! Thanks so much!

Kate -

Thank you for opening up your beautiful cottage to us! We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean, quaint and very comfortable. Sherri and I would love to come back another time. Coastal Georgia, and St. Simons Island is so full of amazing places to travel and the local history was plentiful. As "northerners" , we fully enjoyed exploring all your area has to offer. Your guide magazines helped us determine where to go and what to see. We highly recommend anyone to visit the area and stay at the cottage while doing so. The pool was clean and refreshing. I loved cooking on the grill. The outdoor poolside fireplace was a joy to relax by at days end! Thank you again!
