Ed is a gastroenterologist in Waco, TX, and I am a nurse & homemaker. Having grown up in GA, I've been coming to St. Simons Island since the 1960's,watching it slowly develop (still no high rises!) while keeping its quaint charm. Our 3 children grew up vacationing here, & our oldest son was even married on the island a few years ago. We hope to build many more family memories in the future on St. Simons Island!

Bonnie Carpenter purchased this house in 2013

This home will be our personal vacation home. Just purchased in Jan. 2013, we are the 1st owners of this charming cottage in an extremely popular new sub-division 'Village Oaks'. We fell in love with this neighborhood's hugh oaks, & proximity to everything we love. We also wanted to have enough bedrooms for all of our family to be comfortable. Having spent the last few months furnishing it, we are now ready to offer Doc's Inn to you for your family vacation.

Doc's Inn has the feel of an old seaside cottage while having the most up-to-date amenities. It's close proximity to the village & pier make it extremely convenient to relax & enjoy this island.

AMAZING STAY AT DOC'S INN

Amazing Stay at Doc's Inn
  • 5 of 5
I recently enjoyed a wonderful vacation in St. Simons at your beautiful home! The new home had everything we needed for a week long stay. Our large family (7 adults, 2 children, 2 infants) fit comfortably in the 5 bedrooms and the lovely cottage decor made us feel at home. The amenities were so nice we ended up cooking in a number of nights. I especially enjoyed being within walking distance to the Village and pier - this made it easy for an evening stroll and ice cream treat!

Thank you for sharing your home and we hope to make a return trip!

The St. Simons lighthouse & museum, built in 1872, is a short bike ride away. Try climbing it's 129 steps to the top for a sweeping view of Jekyll Island & the other surrounding islands. The 18th century Fort Frederica National Monument is another popular tourist site. Be sure to drive to the north end of the island to visit historic Christ Church, established in 1884, & still an active Episcopal church today.
