Guestbook comments from the owner

Blown away by the Savannah Oak in your front yard. Really had a hard time finding another in all Savannah that was as beautiful. You have a charming cottage, clean well maintained and a georgeus well maintained property. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area! I will always think of it and the "South" with fond remembrance.

Quaint cottage close to everything yet secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Loved loved loved this place! I didn’t want to leave. It is the perfect balance of close to Savannah but yet you feel truly secluded and peaceful on the marsh. The decor made me feel nostalgic remembering things from childhood that made me smile, also made me think of my Mom, she would have loved it! We will definitely be back!

A Favorite

  • 4 of 5

Moon River was great! The house and furnishings are adorable and homey. The screened in porch was the perfect place for all four of us to relax and have coffee in the morning. Everything we needed to make dinner and we were able to catch the baseball game too. The grounds made the property spectacular! The view of the tidal plain and the birds were so nice. To be able to sit around a blazing fire with a couple of drinks at night made it even better to come back to after a day in Savannah or the islands - both a quick ride. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the double beds - we are used to Kings so it was a little tight sleeping. Oh and it would be nice to have one of the refillable coffee filters for the keurig coffee machine so you could use your own coffee. Otherwise great stay - I highly recommend it!

Great cottage near the beautiful marsh

  • 5 of 5

My daughters, my granddaughter, and I travelled to Savannah for a girls weekend. The cabin was great! It was about 30 minutes to Tybee and 15 minutes to Savannah. It was a great location! The beds were very comfy! Ann was great and answered all my questions promptly!

Very special place. Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we turned down the driveway, we knew we were in for something special. When we approached the cottage and saw the trees - amazing! This cottage is a very, very special place. We felt so lucky that we were able to stay here. Very quiet. Enchanting water views seeing the tide come in and go out. My boyfriend, who is a Georgia native, said the moment we walked into the cottage it took him back 30 years to when he was a little boy at his great granny's house. The screened in porch is amazing. The charm of the way the place is decorated is quaint and very sweet. We could have stayed here longer and wish we would have! We will definitely be back. Absolutely no complaints at all. It exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to come back! Thank you for sharing it with us albeit a short time.

Beautiful, relaxing and inviting

  • 5 of 5

May 28, 2017

I want to say that we truly enjoyed our stay at Oak Grove. My wife and I needed some time to relax and enjoy some time away from home and our busy life. When we walked into the cottage we felt right at home. The atmosphere was so warm and inviting. My wife was able to sleep til 9 every morning and that is something that she have not done in a long time because of work and school. We loved the serenity of the cottage. We were able to see how much Ann loves this cottage because of the little things she used to make this cottage feels like home to all of the visitors that pass through. We really enjoyed sitting on the screen in porch and listen to nature at its best. There just not enough words to describe this place, you just have to visit for yourself. We will be back!

Thank you Ann Barton for opening up your cottage to the public.

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Oak Grove Cottage. The site itself is magical. The Trees! We could have spent a longer stay just getting to know them. The history and soul of the cozy little cottage made the complete package. The "Rustic Moon River Cottage" title is perfect, that's exactly what it is, and has been preserved as. This place has been loved for a long time, and you can feel it. Perfect little touches everywhere. It is extremely comfortable and the breeze through the screened doors made afternoon napping imperative.

We did a bit of running around while we were there. Tybee, downtown, fishing out of Savannah bend marina, visiting family in The Landings, and the location is primo. Don't overlook Sandfly right up the road for local eats etc.

Can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return. Loved it.
