Black Banks Plantation cottage description

Situated at the entrance to the Sea Island causeway, Black Banks Plantation is a unique and charming neighborhood, named for the original Black Banks Plantation house, built in 1801. The Cottage which was built in 1920 as a carriage house for the Plantation, is nestled a short distance from the main house, amid large, old live oaks and overlooks your very own private pool, outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace. All for your EXCLUSIVE use! (In warm weather, the pool is kept at 85 degrees; in winter weather, it is heated by request for an additional fee.)

The house was completely renovated and decorated within the last several years and offers all the luxury, warmth and charm needed to make the most of a stay on this wonderful island, including upstairs deck and downstairs courtyard, luxury linens, fully functional kitchen and top-of-the-line Bosch washer & dryer! Enjoy this vacation paradise any time of year; mild winters are perfect for a swim in the pool and a snuggle by the fireplace.

(Quickly becoming the 'go-to' spot for a romantic celebration, we have been delighted at the number of anniversaries shared at the Cottage! And with a number of Honeymoons already scheduled, it appears that romance is truly in the air!)

And the romantic and relaxing options are many! Swim, cook outside on the large, built-in gas grill, throw a log on the gas-assisted outdoor fireplace and relax or put on your party shoes and head out for a gracious dinner at the nearby Cloister or Halyard's before going to Ziggy Mahoney's for dancing!

When you're done, come 'home' to this quiet, comfortable and charming alternative to the busy condo scene.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: After raising our family in Gainesville, Georgia and coming to St Simons for family vacations for some 20+ years, we made the switch a dozen years ago and were soon followed by several our children! We have relished our time at the beach but have also been delighted with the range of other activities available here on St Simons. From biking to kayaking, shopping and sightseeing, there is just not enough time to do it all.

                  Why the Owner Chose Black Banks Plantation:
                  St Simons has so much to offer that it's hard to know where to start. We all love the beach, so that was the first draw, as was the proximity to our home north of Atlanta but we also wanted a 'real' home, a 'real' community not just a condo-row experience. The community on St Simons is just that and more. Neighborhoods, churches, newcomer's groups, garden club or little theater, there is a place to be part of the rich fabric that is St Simons Island!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The unique character of the cottage is in its beautiful and private setting. You'll feel like you're miles away from the hullaballoo but in reality - you are minutes from a lovely beach, lighthouse, 'village', biking, shopping and kayaking.
