I was a guest of Heron Cottage for a week at the end of July 2016. From the time I reached out to inquire about dates and availability, to the time we departed, everything exceeded my expectations. The pictures and description online were absolutely reflective of the actual property. The home is immaculate, well appointed, and even the kitchen has one of everything you would need if you plan to cook. Also, I can't say enough about Michele and Scott and how welcoming and helpful they were.
The location of the home is in great proximity to everything. You could go just about everywhere on the island by bicycle. The screened in patio on the back of the home (with a fireplace) was a great place for breakfast in the mornings and to unwind in the evenings. We even turned on the fireplace very briefly for the kids to roast hot dogs and marshmallows for smores.
Scott and Michele clearly take pride in this home and the experience they provide their customers. They personify the definition of going above and beyond. All of the excellent reviews you see online for this property and their company are well deserved. If you are considering a vacation in Saint Simon's Island, you should absolutely consider Heron Cottage or any property owned by Island Cottage Company. You won't be disappointed.
