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.

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.
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.
A great week with perfect weather!
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!
Loved it! Location, location, location. It was almost an automobile free vacation. Our stay on St Simons couldn't have been better staying at the Marsh Hens Nest. We walked everywhere and forgot we had a car. Convenient to the Village and Beach we hoofed it everywhere and couldn't have been happier, so much so we are planning a family vacation on St Simons this summer. We just hope the house next store owned by the same landlord is still available when we finalize vacation dates.
My husband and our two furballs enjoyed a full week on St. Simons island. Our stay at the lovely home was more than perfect. Everything we needed and more was at the house. The location is wonderful and while we had visited the island before, we never stayed there over night. We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time at the May Joe house, and the owners were fantastic to work with — even with a hurricane in the mix. We were able to make the most of week chewed up by scary weather, but it worked out really well. Thanks again for your hospitality and flexibility.
Visited here in mid-September of 2016 with my older dog, and I couldn't be happier with both the location and easy walk to the village restaurants and pier, and the comforts of the home: front porch swing, fenced in back yard for pooches, comfy bed and couch, and cold AC. Many thanks--we'll be back!
