Well Hidden GEM

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Fisherman's Cottage and what a wonderful time we had. We were especially happy to be able to bring our dog and the convenience of the screen porch was so much help. We arrived and immediately walked into a most welcoming cottage so very well equipped and there was not anything that we needed to bring. It was so well furnished, dishes, linens everything needed was already well thought out and supplied. You knew allot of thought and consideration went into making the visit feel like you walked into your own home. Loved the history of the cottage and the brick wall, you will have to visit to find out. :) We enjoyed a take out dinner the first night at Sunbury Crab and I even met an employee there who's father lives around the corner from us. I mentioned to the owner where a store was for a bar of soap we had left at home and she was so thoughtful and said she would go home and bring me a bar back. We declined and turns out there was an extra bar in the medicine cabinet. I tell you nothing was missing that we did not need. I enjoyed many walks around the area, it has such a nice feel and loved the oak and moss trees. I toured the Sunbury cemetery and wished there was more of Sunbury from way back but not to be. Met the grandson of the house next door and he enjoyed sharing his love of his childhood and life visiting Sunbury. Enjoyed some pier fishing and talking to some neighbors. We enjoyed grilling out and loved the hammock for napping. This is definitely a place to return to and handling our rental with Dana was such a pleasant experience as well. I sure left rested, stress free and one of the most memorable vacations we have had. We will definitely return. I was so amazed how the cottage was only 4 1/2 hours from east Atlanta. The first days I saw bluebirds, cardinals and dolphin in the river. Pelicans too. Lots of nature around. I did get some great pictures of the sunrise each morning and some boaters were out. Thank you again for offering your home to others and we most appreciated the opportunity. Bring a boat for more options too. So convenient near the loading dock. I am so glad I found Fisherman's Cottage on VRBO.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were reflecting back on our favorite trips in 2016, and we think Sunbury is one of the best kept secrets in Georgia. Fisherman's cottage, in Sunbury, provided every amenity needed for the beach, boating, cuisine and kitchen supplies, and pure relaxation. This adorable cottage has so many attributes: Delicious sea food restaurant, Sunbury Crab Company, within walking distance; spectacular sunrises; porpoises and sea otters in the morning; boaters and sailors passing by,, and plenty of space for the kids - including the four-legged kind.

Fisherman's Cotage is a fantastic family retreat from busy Atlanta - about 5 hours drive. During our stay, we enjoyed a beach day at Jekyll Island and bought fresh-caught shrimp on our way back to the cottage. Nice outdoor grill at the cottage for your fresh catches!!!

My husband and I were blessed to spend 5 wonderful nights at this amazing cottage. It was the most peaceful, relaxing, stress-free, vacation that we have ever had. We caught fish, watched dolphins swim next to our dock, and were able to completely disconnect from this crazy world for a short time. Dana is WONDERFUL. Although we had NO problems, she was available 24/7. The rental process, from beginning to end, was a breeze. The cabin was spotless and everything we needed was provided. We can't wait to return. Hoping to stay longer next trip.

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great getaway, look no further! My wife, three kids, and my parents stayed three nights and it was truly relaxing. The property was everything it said it was and more. It was fully stocked with everything you need with items such as coffee maker, filters, soap, cookers, gas grill, crab traps, you name it. The views are amazing and well worth the trip. Even though the crabs were somewhat out of season, we experienced everything from dolphin watching, boating, fishing, sight seeing, and even catching some small sharks off the dock. I want to also want to give a great big thank you to the person who planted the two magnolia trees on the bank so many years ago. They provide the perfect place sit in the shade, relax, and watch the boats in the waterways! We will definitely go again!
