Love the place
Enjoyed the place and location. Neighbors were real nice too! Hope to come back again in the next few months.
Peaceful & Relaxing Getaway!
This little cottage is a great place if you are looking for a relaxing fishing spot! Plenty of room for our family of 4 and the cottage was stocked with everything we needed! Although we didn't fare to well in the fishing department due to the cold weather, we will definitely keep this place in mind for when the weather is warmer. Great spot and very quiet and peaceful. We took our boat and location couldn't be better! Gorgeous sunrise views over water every morning!
Perfect away from it all
My husband and I came down to visit our son and because it was St. Patty’s weekend we wanted to stay away from the crowd. After all, we live in a metropolitan city. We live the hustle and bustle everyday. The view from the porch alone makes it all worth it. And the sunrise was the closest thing to Heaven I have ever seen. We have no complaints. My only suggestion is to make sure you either bring groceries or prepare about a 15 min druve to the nearest store. We knew ahead of time so it was not an issue. There is one restaurant, the Sunbury Crab Shack, within walking distance (0.6 miles). Overall I would highly recommend if you’re looking to disconnect, put your phones away and spend quality time with family and friends.
Just as advertised. Nice cottage right on the water. Great for fishing and boating.
Nice spot for a peaceful waterfront escape
Well Hidden GEM
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.
Thanks for much for your high recommendation for the Fisherman's Cottage. Since I grew up at Sunbury, I especially love the fact that you enjoyed the rich history of the area and the beauty of nature in such a serene coastal environment. Please do plan to return and enjoy another coastal getaway! Thanks, Dana
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.
