RIVER COTTAGE & PRIVATE DOCK ON RIVER, WILMINGTON ISLAND SAVANNAH, GEORGIA

Savannah Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

A MUST SEE if you are planning a vacation, fishing trip, family outing or a special getaway!

Stay in a quaint cottage right on the wide, beautiful Wilmington River. This restored cottage was built in the 1920’s, furnished with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing, healthy, island experience. Located just ten miles from historic downtown, between Savannah and Tybee Island beach.

Located on the intra-coastal waterway, you’ll have your own private dock with a large covered area and plenty of deck for sunning. From the dock you’ll enjoy fishing, crabbing, swimming, relaxing in the sun or just curling up on a comfortable chaise lounge with a book while an ocean breeze puts you in another world.

Casting off from the dock by boat, you can be in the ocean or anchored on a secluded, barrier-island beach in just a few minutes, literally. Whether you stay at the dock, head offshore to fish for the big ones or explore the rivers and marshes for trout, bass or flounder, you’ll have some of the best access to fish anywhere.

You might want to leave the fishing gear at home and take the family on a boating or nature excursion to the barrier islands where you can walk on secluded beaches, view coastal birds, collect seashells and driftwood, explore tidal marsh creeks and rivers or just cruise with friends to a local, boat-access restaurant for food and libations.

If you want to get in a round of golf, The Wilmington Plantation Golf Club (a Donald Ross designed course) is just a golf cart drive down the road. Or you could scoot across the river to the Priest’s Landing, dock the boat and play one of the many courses at The Landings on Skidaway Island (also accessible by car).

Whether shopping for antiques downtown or playing outdoors, after a day of sun and salt air, you’ll want to settle down on the cottage’s spacious dock to watch an amazing sunset.

The cottage has a Cook’s Kitchen and an outdoor grill, making it a perfect place for entertaining indoors or out. Grill your catch of the day, ride to the local market for steaks or bring your favorite ingredients along for an exotic feast. Dine inside the house or set a beautiful table right on the dock.

INSHORE AND OFFSHORE FISHING CHARTERS - BOAT & KAYAK RENTALS - DOLPHIN & RIVER EXCURSIONS - We can hook you up for inshore and offshore chartered fishing, boat and kayak rentals, Dolphin Tours, River and Eco-Tours, Barrier Island Tours and so much more.

When you stay in the River Cottage you should plan to leave work and worries behind. Just relax and play all day.

Not long enough! (Orange MA)

They say spring is coming up north but it has already started in Savannah. Though cooler then normal and a little rainy for St Patrick's Day it sure beat what we left and came back to here in Mass. We had a great time, location was perfect and the house is very well appointed. Not long enough to do all that we wanted too, like sitting out on dock and watching dolphins and enjoying the view but enough to recharge us from this never ending winter. Thank you for a great place to stay!

Perfect location for a Perfect vacation!

We had a wonderful vacation at this cottage! We weren't expecting great weather (and it wasn't) but when the beach isn't an option, you discover things to do that you wouldn't choose otherwise. We took a boat for an extremely successful fossil hunt, a night time tour through Bonaventure, toured the wildlife refuge and enjoyed so many of the area's restaurants. This cottage is so clean and the owners have taken the time to equip the cottage with all the amenities you didn't even think you'd need! The beds are as comfy as your own....you will just love this place! You know it's a great vacation when you are planning your next trip on the ride home :) Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Amazing Cottage !!

We just returned from 5 nights at this cottage. It was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The cottage is immaculate. The location is perfect - only 10 minutes from Savannah. The dock is the best part. Big ceiling fans help to keep the bugs away and keep you cool and comfortable. I think we caught at least one of every saltwater fish there is - an eel, stingray, flounder, black sea bass, spots, etc. One day while fishing a dolphin came up out of the water close enough for me to touch almost ! Watching the boats go by on the ICW was so much fun. The beds in the queen bedroom and king bedroom were so comfortable. When we arrived every single detail had been taken care - linens on the beds, tissue, soap, paper towels, even Tide in the laundry room. The owners are the nicest we have ever rented from - and we use VRBO a lot. So willing to help with anything we needed. WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR !!! We want to thank the owners so very much for sharing their beautiful cottage with us.

What a relaxing time!

I have rented before on VRBO and as in the past, I was not disappointed in this rental. The house was just as described and shown on the website and is so charming! It is so welcoming and we felt right at home. The house has all the charm and character of an older house but has been well taken care and updated. It has been furnished with all the comforts of home. It is quiet and tucked away from any noise and distractions. The dock... what to say? Probably our favorite part! So beautiful and we spent every evening there watching the boats and relaxing! We even saw dolphins! The house was very clean and everything is in great working order. We had a small issue with the air-conditioner and we called Leslie. She had someone out right away to fix it and was so concerned about our comfort. We had a wonderful week, spent time in Savannah and Tybee (if you are visiting, check out The Crab Shack on Tybee Island, YUM!) This is not our first trip to Wilmington Island and hopefully, not our last. We would definitely rent this home again and would highly recommend it to others!
