Built 1910 by Glynn County's first millionaire, The Strachan Carriage House provides 5,000 sq. ft. of modern amenities and comfortable luxury for large groups of friends or extended families. Jump in the 34x18 ft private pool in our landscaped garden or catch the ocean breezes on our 52-foot, second floor veranda.

After a long walk on the beach, rinse off in the private outdoor shower and grab your favorite beach drink to enjoy the sunset over the water. Grill your favorite seafood or steaks on the largest Weber outdoor grill and then enjoy the feast at the handmade oak table which seats 12. After dinner, take a stroll for ice cream in the village or enjoy crabbing on the pier. Leave time for stargazing from our third floor balcony or watching your favorite movie on our big screen tv.

Get a great night's sleep in luxury bedding. Next day climb t192 steps to the top of the lighthouse, tour the island by bike or on the trolley. Lots of room to play scrabble, read, or take naps on rainy days. Visit our website today to book your historic stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your carriage house was the perfect place for our group of 8 close friends. We gathered in the sitting area for coffee, wine, snacks and basketball. We prepared a delicious meal and found all the kitchen pans and utensils we needed for preparation. It was not warm enough to swim but sitting be the pool was delightful as the days got warmer.

We would definitely recommend your property to others, especially reunions like ours. Access to local restaurants was a treat. We especially enjoyed Palmer's. Access to beach was limited by the tide so I was glad that we did not have expectations for ocean swimming.

Very large house, great BIG pool, multiple hang out spaces made this house good for families with kids. Loved that we could walk to town to get a bite to eat.

Our stay could not have been more pleasant. House was beyond our expectations and the location is great for our teens to explore the shops. Highly recommend and we will be there again next year.

5-Star R&R

Spring travel, work, wedding, and graduation left us exhausted. So it was perfect to have a week to rest and recuperate at this amazing comfortable historic home. Just the two of us reading by pool, napping on the veranda, doing a little (just a little) work via wi-fi, and strolling to the village for amazing dinners at Palmers and Del Sur. Always love being here with lots of family and friends but this time, just for us, it was perfect with take out pizza on our 40th wedding anniversary.
