About the property

2 bedroom 1 bath top floor - sleeps 2-4 guests

The River Roost is an affordable rental ideal for a couple or a small family seeking a coastal retreat with a private deepwater dock for fishing, crabbing and docking your boat.

This is a top floor rental but you would have full access to the private dock, the deck and the yard as the owners do not use the owner's suite downstairs when guests are at The Roost. You would have complete privacy.

Located only 35 minutes from historic savannah, your friends and family will enjoy the serene coastal environment within a short driving distance to historic attractions and local beaches.

Bring your boat and explore the rivers known as the gateway to great fishing and the pristine beaches of the ga barrier islands. The River Roost is located on the vast North Newport River.

No boat? No worries! Travel to the nearby public beaches of Tybee island, St Simons Island and Jekyll island within 50 minutes by by car.

Don't forget about all of the activities during a day trip to Savannah (only 35 minutes away) including seeing the historic sites on trolley tours, ghost tours, haunted pub crawls, dinner cruises and dining on river street or at Lady and Sons, Paula Deen's famous restaurant in the historic district.

The rental is within 5 minutes of a favorite local seafood restaurant, the Sunbury Crab Company. Enjoy 'straight off the boat' seafood from this rustic 'Key West meets Coastal GA' open-air restaurant with magnificent waterfront views.

The River Roost accommodates up to 4 guests in total. The top floor rental has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.

In summary, the River Roost offers the following to our guests:

- 2 bedrooms and 1 bath

- top floor rental (stairs)

- sleeping capacity of up to 4 guests at an affordable price

- large private deepwater dock

- great fishing, shrimping and crabbing directly off dock

- magnificent direct waterfront views

- serene coastal environment within 35 minutes of historic downtown Savannah

- within 50 minutes of three area public beaches by car

- convenience of boat lift, fuel and bait at nearby half moon marina

- gateway to the pristine GA barrier island beaches of St. Catherines, Ossabaw, Blackbeard and Sapelo by boat or charter

- other activities in the area including golf, kayaking, skeet shooting, and visiting nearby historic sites.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have finally found our home away from home! No more searching for countless hours for a place for vacation. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us. We had a blast! It is very peaceful and relaxing at the River Roost, even for 4th of July week! It was exactly what we needed! House is cozy and comfortable and having a private covered dock was awesome. And the view is spectacular!! Myself, my husband, and our son caught numerous fish right off the dock along with some yummy blue crabs too! We saw numerous dolphins every day and some came very close to the dock. We booked an inshore fishing charter with Captain Mark Lewis which was a great experience and ate a delicious meal at the Sunbury Crab Co. Met the neighbor, she is very sweet and friendly. We also met Elvis! He showed up the night we fired up the, such a sweet, handsome boy! We could not have asked for a more relaxing week. We were there for 6days/5nights and still did not want to leave!! We can't wait to come back!!

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Roost three times now and each time has been great. It is always well stocked , clean and in good repair. This is the perfect place for fishing trips or just getting away from it all.

Relaxing and fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a peaceful and beautiful place to spend a few days. A storm was coming in when we stayed, but it made for a nice breeze and cloud cover to keep the heat at bay. Everything you need, other than food and drinks, is already there in case you forget. The windows that look out on the river made for a magnificent view, especially in the mornings with the light pouring in. The bed is comfy and the open area is cozy, yet spacious. We caught several crabs and even a sting ray out of the salt river and saw a lot of dolphins. I can't wait to go back.

Enjoy Nature with all the comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four had a wonderful Spring Break at the River Roost! The owners have thought of everything to make your stay worry-free. We enjoyed fishing and crabbing off the dock and even saw some dolphins a few times. There are 3 beds and a well equipped kitchen to help keep costs down by cooking at "home." The wifi worked great, we cooked-out on their gas grill (charcoal provided too), toasted marshmallows on at the fire pit... and even did a few loads of laundry to keep our packing a bit lighter. The location was perfect for us, but you're close to an hour from the Savannah beach and about the same to Brunswick to the south. What I really liked was it wasn't at all touristy, even the week after Easter. There's a kayak provided but we didn't get a chance to use it. It *is* cozy... so I wouldn't want to stay there with more than four people. Everything worked great. The owners have a place in the downstairs of the duplex, but we were told they don't stay there when there are guests upstairs in the "roost." I agree with the previous reviews that there is a lot of TLC put into this place, and you shouldn't hesitate to stay there if you get the chance. Thanks for a great stay!!

Great location on direct waterfront. We had a fun time fishing catching sharks. Loved seeing all the dolphins daily right beside the dock. So peaceful, great vacation. Dana was absolutely the best!
