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.
