Property description

Framed by towering Georgia pines and marshes The Bluebird overlooks Horse Pen Creek and the Back River. The owners live in the main living quarters on the ground floor, which began as two army barracks, which were moved from historic Fort Screven in the 1940’s.

Former owner, George McDonald, an original girl scout who served under Juliette Gordon Low, purchased the cottage in the 1970’s. George was a spirited woman, a retired teacher who was very community focused. She was instrumental in getting Tybee’s named changed back from “Savannah Beach” to “Tybee”, as well as being a primary leader in initiating the restoration of the Tybee Lighthouse. George added the second floor, which now serves as The Bluebird Suite, for her sister, Caroline. George and Caroline enjoyed living in their marsh cottage until the late 1990’s. The current owner, your hostess, Shirley, hopes to provide a wonderful experience for travelers who appreciate helpfulness but also value their privacy.
Your cozy suite (with private entrance) is spacious and includes a living area with satellite TV, wi-fi access, a variety of books; and a refrigerator, coffee maker, & microwave. Bedroom includes a king sized bed, private shower, closet & and a sitting area.
A variety of birdhouses, garden art, and wind chimes add whimsical touches as you experience breathtaking sunsets overlooking the marsh, Horse Pen Creek, & the Back River. The location is central to the Back River fishing pier, the Tybee Pier and Pavilion, the beach, a variety of restaurants, art museums and shops. Bring your bike or rent one for an enjoyable way to sight see around our small island.
The view is sensational and can be enjoyed from each room. At high tide the marsh is covered with water and in addition to enjoying watching boaters, or kayaks passing by, it’s relaxing to watch the fish jumping or the occasional serendipitous glimpse of dolphins frolicking in the waters.


Keywords: Peaceful, beautiful marsh and water views, quiet, bright and cheerful, romantic, restful, lovely, charming, breezy, great location, easy walk to beach.
