Nestled under the ancient live oak trees and between the parks and the historic oceanfront Village, you will find our unique 28-room Inn. While building the Inn, the owners restored the 1930 beach cottage and designed the Inn around it to integrate the architecture of the neighborhood and the facade of the cottage. The Inn was built around the existing giant live oaks that inhabit the Island and not one limb was removed or destroyed.
Developer and owner, George Stewart and wife Michelle, were the recipients of a first time ever “Good Developer Award” given by the Island’s Environmentalist Group (RUPA). You will even be parking on ‘grass & shell pave’ instead of pavement. This was done as to not disturb the root systems of the trees and to promote environmentally safe water runoff.
You will step back in time when you enter our beach cottage reception area. It is there that you will start your adventure into the Island’s historic past. The Village Inn and Pub is reminiscent of a 1930’s style.
There is not one room that has the same floor plan as another. Each room has its unique style that adds to the character of the Inn. The Beach Cottage serves as our main gatehouse and features an antique English Pub made of solid mahogany. You will also find the original stone fireplace and various antiques and treasures within. The small and intimate guesthouse and Inn is the perfect setting for your wedding, reunion, small business meeting or any function. A continental breakfast is served daily on the sun porch located in the pub.
Uniquely, each of our rooms is named after an historical individual that has had some significant impact on St. Simons Island such as James Hamilton, Eugenia Price, James Edward Oglethorpe, or Mildred Nix Huie. Each room has historical elegance with its soothing color schemes and majestic crown moldings. The rooms are eloquently appointed, each having a custom built armoire that houses a 55″ television.
Each room has a desk with work space for last minute business or correspondence. We offer high-speed wireless internet service to our guests. They also have an iron, ironing board, hair dryer and soft, cozy robes for your comfort during your visit. You may chose two double beds, a luxurious king or a spacious queen bed, for a soothing and restful sleep. Some of the rooms have relaxing leather chairs to stretch out in after a full day of sightseeing. Most of the rooms have a quaint balcony with a view of the pool and courtyard that is filled with colorful flowers and bright native foliage or a view of the historical Village. All of the rooms are smoke free. However, smoking is permitted on the balconies.
