Richmond Hill vacation rentals

Historical Richmond Hill

If water-top shacks along the bends of the lazy Ogeechee River, or rustic cabins hiding in the Georgian woods, or handsome country mansions with sprawling gardens and family lounges sound like your idea of the perfect getaway, then it's likely Richmond Hill vacation rentals won't disappoint. Dotting the beautiful riparian fields south of Savannah, they offer access to beautiful creek trails and hearty local Irish pubs, not to mention the cannon-bolstered bulwarks of Fort McAllister _ a truly striking Confederate relic that oozes tales of General Sherman and the American Civil War.

Rest and relaxation in Richmond Hill

Before getting your fix of local history, be sure to make the most of the laid-back, lazy character of Richmond Hill. Surrounded by the misty hammocks and cypress swamps of the Ogeechee River basin, you surely won't have to venture far from your Richmond Hill vacation rentals to enjoy a spot of fishing, walking, kayaking, or horse riding. There's also designated historical driving routes outlined around the town, which are perfect for families eager to explore the heritage of Dixie, the Civil War, and the legacy of one Henry Ford.

As the azalea blooms decorate the streets and warm temperatures return to the Eastern Seaboard, the nearby nature parks, history sites, and riverside trails really come into their own.

On the meanders of the Ogeechee in Richmond Hill

Many Richmond Hill vacation rentals will overlook the pretty meanders of the Ogeechee River, much like the grand old home of Henry Ford back in the 1800s. It's easy to see why people want them to. Beautiful wetland swamps and creaking cypress hammocks pop up all along the courses of the river, offering habitats for rare birds and bugs. Some excellent reserves are within easy reach, too. Take the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge to the east, which has winding rivers and sandy coastal stretches. Or, head to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge with its drowned forests, bald eagles, and snapping alligators.
