About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

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.
