About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
High Tide Cottage is only 20 minutes from St. Simons Island, Georgia. The quiet charm of the waterfront and fishing village of Darien is the best kept secret on the coast. The cottage is one block from the boat ramp and the Darien River. Preview the pictures below and you can see the waterfront and charm of this special property. Located one hour from either the Jacksonville or Savannah airports. Or fly into the Brunswick airport on a Delta Connection and have only a 15 minute ride to the cottage. Only a 4 ½ hour drive from Atlanta. If coming by boat, take the intracoastal waterway to the Darien River and boat 20 minutes to the cottage and downtown Darien. Bring your own boat and explore our backyard.
3 bedrooms plus a bungalow/2 baths (10 guests maximum).
There is a brick coastal courtyard for entertaining and enjoying the Five Moon outdoor kitchen. High Tide Cottage is the perfect romantic cottage for two, or for you and nine of your best friends. Fully stocked kitchen, linens and, yes, we include your coffee, sweeteners, paper products and oyster knives for fresh steamed oysters from your outdoor kitchen. Why pay more for a room in a hotel when you can have a great cottage next to the quiet charm of the fishing village of Darien, Georgia, and the Darien River?
Thank you for inquiring about one of the Private Islands of Georgia's newest properties. My name is Andy Hill and I am the owner and director of guest services for High Tide Cottage. We look forward to providing exceptional guest services for your large event, or your romantic weekend for two, with a getaway package just for you!
I will work with you to provide a relaxing getaway weekend, a getaway for the family for a week, or a special anniversary or honeymoon escape. We will listen and work with you to provide any services, food, outdoor activities (offshore/inshore fishing, kayaking, crabbing or boating on the Georgia coast), or escape to the beaches of St. Simons, Jekyll or Sapelo Island. We will be your personal concierge while you are vacationing at High Tide Cottage. We offer over ten packages to choose from to our guests at this Private Islands of Georgia property, High Tide Cottage.
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 regular 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. We have all the wares and accessories for everything from gourmet cooking, slow cooking a pork tenderloin, smoking a Boston butt to a coffee urn for large groups. If cooking is your thing, Private Islands of Georgia has you covered! All spices, coffee and paper products are provided.
FIVE MOON OUTDOOR KITCHEN:
High Tide Cottage features a charcoal grill, low country boil cook stand and a prep table for your backyard party. You can utilize the low country boil cook stand to steam your oysters, too. We have done the planning…you have the fun!
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.
