About Mary Ellen Sprague

We live in Savannah and love it!

Why Mary Ellen Sprague chose Tybee Island

Wonderful house for family and friend reunions. Plenty of space to be by yourself or enjoy the company of others. Second floor is more like living in a big tree house with its large porches. Very different than your average home.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to Back River with calm waters and fewer people. Great for small children. Easy access to ocean for those who like bigger waves and larger crowds of people.

This house is all about having fun!

Another great fall vacation at this house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th year to vacation at this great old Tybee home. It it like going home when we walk onto the screened in porch. We have plenty of room to spread out for gathering and playing, and even secluded areas to get a little privacy or a special nap.The location is perfect for the many different activities my family and friends enjoy on the island. Each morning we have breakfast on the 2nd floor porch. In the evenings we gather for dinner on the 1st floor porch and and share our Tybee adventures of the day. We are already looking forward to next September's vacation at this wonderful Tybee home.

porches were awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We spent most of our late eve and nites on the porches ,the view of the sunset was beautiful. There were 13 of us and we had plenty of room. The kids were able to play as they were spacious enclosed and plenty of seating. The hammocks were a big hit. Definitely would go back, nice proximity to the beach, well stocked house every kitchen appliance and utensil you could think of.We just love the south end of Tybee so quiet and beach.

Great Old House!

  • 5 of 5

We started having an annual family and friends vacation at this house in 2011. Everyone loves the old home with its early 1900's charm. The screened in porches are a wonderful place to gather. We have breakfast each morning on the top porch, and lunch and dinner on the bottom porch so we do not miss out on any of the wonderful Tybee breezes and views. The location is great and offers quick access for kayaking, fishing, shelling, swimming, shopping, or just snoozing on the hammock on the screened porch! The home provides all the towels, linens, and cooking equipment we need. When we walk into the porch to begin our vacation each year, it feels like home! We have made a lot of wonderful memories at this house. We hope to continue this annual fall family and friends vacation at this great old house forever.
