The Lodge on Little St. Simons Island
Scale of 90-100
Serene retreat on barrier island with 16 rustic but comfortable wood-paneled rooms in original hunting lodge and outlying cottages. Choose the brighter, cheerful Tom House or Michael Cottage. Lounge has a massive stone fireplace, bookshelves and open bar. Simple and delicious Lowcountry dishes are served family-style in a cozy dining room; seasonal Friday oyster roasts. Chief amenity is virtually unspoiled 11,000-acre island that provides sanctuary for a wealth of wildlife, including nearly 330 species of birds. Naturalist-led bird-watching walks through interior and along wild beach; kayaking, cycling and fishing. Not luxurious, but rather the embodiment of rustic comfort.

The attention to detail and meticulous service.
The many tall trees tend to make some rooms dark; the accommodations in Helen House, Tom House and Michael Cottage are brighter and more cheerful.
Good to Know
