Overview

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.

PETS:

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!

SMOKING:

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

Why Sean & Shannon Dammann chose Saint Simons Island

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.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

Needed work. The bathroom is worn and needs painting. The kitchen floor consists of peeling linoleum. The front screen door is broken and wood is hanging loose. The screen on the porch is broken in many places. There are no smoke alarms or carbon monoxide detectors. The light in the master bedroom was burned out. The positive things were a good heating system, decent furniture and a great location near the town and the beach. It is also pet friendly but we had to barricade the broken front screen door to keep the cats in . This place just needs work inside to make it appealing and not looking like a fixer upper. In its current state I would not recommend it.

We love this cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times. The location and price are great. It's a simple old Island style cottage that feels like home.

The owner, Sean, is very attentive.

Great location but the house badly needs renovation.

  • 2 of 5

The house was in poor shape. The pictures do not show the true condition of the property. The front screen door had a hole in it. The flooring in the kitchen and bath were worn through in places and molding in the bathroom was rotting. If renovated this would be a wonderful place but we would not stay there again in the current condition.

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:))
