About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This cottage has the charm of 'old' St Simons. We offer you our pet friendly cottage 2 - 3 blocks from the beach, the Pier, the Village, the Lighthouse, the public pool and a beautiful old Live Oak Tree Park. This is a well-loved, fully furnished two bedroom home shaded by 200 year old oaks on a low traveled, sandy, unpaved lane.

Sip your morning coffee on the wide screen porch and listen to the birds underneath the Oak trees and Spanish Moss, ride bike's on the beach, and enjoy the cozy interior of the 'Marsh Hen’s Nest'. This charming little cottage is 100 years old with a 1920's type architecture, yet offering some nice modern conveniences like central heat and air, cable TV and WiFi. Work away from home with our high speed WiFi and free long distance and entertain the kids with our HiDef TV DVR and game port. You can relax and work here for retreat or vacation!

This cottage has two bedrooms:

- Bedroom 1 is roomy with a king sized bed.

- Bedroom 2 has twin beds and room for an extra sleeping bag or two on the floor for kids

- The living room is great for relaxing, reading, napping and watching movies.

If you are looking for a larger place, we have a 4 bedroom Cottage (#193834) next door. Both houses can be rented together to offer space for a larger group of friends or family. We offer a discount when you rent both homes together.

This has been our family beach vacation retreat for 25 years! Our family has collected many fond memories in this little house. We ask that you treat it with love, care and respect.


Your pet dog(s) (max 2) are welcome if they are well-behaved and house-trained. Afterall, they are part of the family too, right?! We ask that you keep them bathed and treated for fleas. Also, PLEASE keep pets OFF of the furniture. Bring a pet bed or crate for them. Thank you!


This is strictly a NON-SMOKING property. Smoking is not allowed in the house.

Why Sean & Shannon Dammann chose Coastal

Carrell bought this home about 35 years ago to have a family beach vacation retreat. Our family has collected many fond memories in this little cottage on St. Simons Island.

What makes this cottage unique

We love hanging out on the front porch, walking and riding bikes to the beach, pier, lighthouse, pool and Oak Tree park, watching movies, playing cards, cooking homecooked meals, and just hanging out together.

St. Simon Trip

  • 3 of 5

The house is cute and has a great location. Some updates would be great, kitchen and bathroom are old and outdated. Cleaning crew didn't do a good job, but we talked to the owner about this on our artival day. The front porch door is rotten and an update would give the house a better look. Nice house for a good price and good location made the stay enjoyable.

Cozy beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the cottage. The location is awesome! Beds are comfortable (hubby slept better here than at home!) and plenty of towels and well stocked kitchen.

We plan on staying again in the future!

Lovely, Quiet, Charming Cottage Close to Everything:)))

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Marsh Hen's Nest, along with the larger Crane's Wilderness, for the week of my daughter's wedding at The Casino in The Village at SSI. This house was "The icing on the cake" of the larger, more spacious Crane's Wilderness. Both rentals together were absolutely PERFECT for our large family get together dinners or game nights. This cottage had absolutely everything needed for the perfect week/weekend getaway. The proximity to the village, pier, beaches was perfect for walking or bike riding. My extended family was able to create memories that will never be forgotten. Thank you Sean and Family:))

Not The Best Place We Have Rented on SSI

  • 3 of 5

This cottage is in one of the prettiest locations on SSI in the village area. The screen porch was great with the swing. However, it was good that we were not there during "bug" season as the holes in the screening and gaps around the door would not keep anything out. The gas grille on the porch should be discarded! We used the small Weber someone had left. The cottage itself could be very charming (had very nice artwork) but it is unfortunate that the owners have not maintained it very well. The kitchen was ill equipped for cooking and the stove should be replaced along with the washer/dryer. We realized after arrival that the write up of the cottage did not indicate a dishwasher or disposal. Our mistake, but both should be included in a quality rental. There was suppose to be a CD player but none was found. This was reported to the owners but no action was taken. The furniture in the LR was very used to the point of being tacky. Dinning room furniture looked new and the bedrooms were OK. The bathroom was what you would expect in a home this old. We would love to be back in this SSI location but it will not be in this cottage.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Bill. I visited the cottage the week after you and delivered a new set of pots/pans and knives. We update these annually (usually memorial Day Weekend when I visit). Stove, oven and washer/dryer were in good working order during our visit. We keep both the Weber grill and Gas grill at the house even though we do not advertise them. They are meant as a bonus for anyone who wishes to use them.

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Marsh Hen's House is a wonderful property. We loved it. From the house itself to its convenient location to the owners availability we couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Saint Simon's Island is a hidden jewel. And if the owners ever want to sell...we're in line to buy!
