High Tide Cottage, circa 1940. The cottage was extensively renovated in 2007. The attention to detail in restoration of the heart pine floors to larger baths and large closets adds to the charm of this special coastal cottage. The large bedrooms with king and queen beds and fine linens add to the cottage charm. The antique brick courtyard captivates the landscape with a bungalow for two located outside the cottage.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS:
The cottage offers three bedrooms plus a bungalow, with two king beds, two queen beds (one is a pull-out sofa), and two twin beds. The two bedrooms on the main floor house a king and a queen bed, and share a large bathroom. The second bath is located next to the kitchen and is shared with the outside bungalow, which has two twin beds, and the basement bedroom, which has a king bed and a queen pull-out sofa.
The cottage has wireless internet, TV, games, cards, 4 bikes and a kayak for riverfront fun and adventure. Bed linens, robes and bathroom products are also provided. Please check our availability calendar to make plans for your getaway to High Tide Cottage.
We pay great attention to detail when it comes to the kitchen.

The courtyard, which is home to the 5 Moon Outdoor kitchen, features antique brick pavers, lighted gazebo alfresco dining and a great spot to entertain your guests while you vacation.
BOATING AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES:
Bring your own boat. As a licensed captain for 20 years, my passion is being on the water. I captained Where’s The Fish? in over 100 King Mackeral tournaments throughout the southeast in the Southern Kingfish Association. Now my days on the water are spent providing guest services to our guests at Private Islands of Georgia. At High Tide Cottage, your backyard is the Georgia coast. The property has water access, so while on your vacation you can explore the rivers, estuaries, creeks and sounds not to mention the Atlantic Ocean. I will work with you and make you comfortable with coastal navigation and how to boat on the Georgia coast. We offer maps and charts, as well as local knowledge. We’ll help you enjoy all the boating activities the Georgia coast has to offer. Just ask!! We offer four bikes for touring the streets of Historic Darien, and a kayak to paddle the vast array of waterways. Come join us and play in our backyard of adventure.
