The house is fully furnished, has a fully equipped kitchen, and 2 full bathrooms. Your family will enjoy relaxing on the screened in porch or outside on the brick patio. The house has a large yard, perfect for kids to run around and play. The property also has a one car garage, as well as plenty of room on the driveway to park a boat or trailer. The Golden Isles of Jekyll, St. Simons, and Cumberland are only minutes away. Daily ferries cruise the open waters of the mouth of the St. Marys River for 45 minutes to Cumberland Island where you may visit the historic homes of the renowned Carnegie families and relax on one of the most pristine beaches on the Atlantic. Catch the ferry from St. Marys, the second oldest town in America, just minutes from Woodbine.
Woodbine is just 35-40 minutes north of the Jacksonville, FL International Airport; 15 minutes from Kingsland, GA; 45 miles from Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach, FL; 90 miles south of historic Savannah, GA; 30 miles from the Okefenokee Swamp in Folkston, GA. In addition to the three locally-owned restaurants in Woodbine, there are many dining options in nearby Kingsland, Brunswick, St. Simons, Fernandina, and St. Marys.
Woodbine has an acclaimed nature trail running through the center of town to a riverwalk along the Satilla River, which features a public dock and a boat ramp. The nature trail is open to bicycles as well as to pedestrians. The house is only four blocks from the trail where you can enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the river.

About Property Manager
My mother and dad built this family home in 1950. They lived here the remainder of their lives. I have changed some furnishings, but kept much of the home as it was when I inherited it in 2005.

Charming cottage that immediately feels like home.
Our family loved this home and are so sad to leave. The home is spacious with charming decor, beautiful landscaping and a large yard. The home is very clean and well-maintained. We immediately felt at home. It is located in a safe neighborhood with sidewalks where our children enjoyed riding their bikes and playing outside. We truly appreciate the owner for sharing their sweet home with us and feel as if she is a part of our family!
Like home away from home.
This place is like being in your own home. Great stay here and look forward to doing it again.
Met our needs while spouse at FLETC
With the reduced budget we were provided by going off-campus at FLETC, this fully equipped home let our new family handle the time at FLETC with ease, within budget, and within a reasonable commute time.
Glad you and your family could stay with us during this time at FLETC.
The home was very cozy and well furnished. We loved the screened-in porch.
The yard was beautiful with all the flowers, the back yard was huge- great for a game of crochet. The little town was very friendly and the neighborhood quiet.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Step back to the past
This house was built in the 1940's by the owners parents. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, and in close proximity to the interstate. There is a big yard that backs up to the woods. We enjoyed our stay.
Great city getaway
Loved it and owner had everything we needed plus more
Come to the small southern town of Woodbine, Georgia for the winter or for a nice vacation any time of the year. Only half an hour from the Atlantic Coast, our friendly town has a variety of amenities. There is a beautiful nature trail and boardwalk (part of the 'Rails to Trails' program) winding along the river through a bird sanctuary and interesting arboretum. There are a public boat ramp and dock on the Satilla River only 1 mile from the house and only 15 miles from the ocean. Every Friday and Saturday night, you can join the crowd at the Woodbine Opry to enjoy some country music. There are also two great restaurants right in the downtown area, Captain Stan's and Kelley's Creative Catering/Design Cafe'. If you're here at the end of April, make sure to attend the local Crawfish Festival held in Woodbine annually.
The Golden Isles of St Simon's and Jekyll are only a short drive away where you and your family can explore beaches, bike trails, and nature at its finest. You can also enjoy playing golf, wandering through the shops, visiting the sea turtle center, or stopping by the historic lighthouse on St Simon's Island. Travel a short distance south from Woodbine and visit St. Marys, the second oldest town in America, where you can explore shops and restaurants or catch the daily ferry to Cumberland Island National Seashore (reservations recommended). Cruise the open waters of the intracoastal waterway, making the 45 minute journey to Cumberland Island, where you can visit the historic home of the Carnegie family, see wild horses and other wildlife, and relax on one of the most pristine beaches on the Atlantic.
Travel down Highway 110 to Folkston to take a tour of the Okefenokee Swamp Wildlife Refuge where you can see a variety of wildlife, including alligators. Folkston is also known as a great place to train watch!
