About the property

The Lodge Is Three Bedrooms, Two Baths Of Rustic Luxury.

The Lodge at Colonel’s Island!

I really want you to think of my home as your home. I’ve designed it just for you…to be your perfect home…away from home.

The Lodge is three bedrooms, two baths of rustic luxury, updated with modern conveniences to give you a true retreat from the stress and worries of everyday life. Nestled on 1.5 acres of pristine woodlands and wetlands on Colonels Island, Georgia, The Lodge is the perfect sanctuary to relax, refresh, renew.

Improving on Perfection-

And to help make it even better, don’t worry about check in or check out times…or about what to do with your dog. Dogs and pets are always welcome. And you don't need to worry about how you’re going to get around (bikes, golf carts, kayaks and other boats are available for rental). There’s even a fishing charter close by for an adventurous day on the water.


The sun awakens you on your first morning at The Lodge. Out the window, in the mist, a doe and two fawn sample the grass at the edge of the woods. You wander outside onto the screened porch or the back deck where the only sounds are the coo of a nearby mourning dove and the screech of a red tail hawk somewhere in the distance. This is the start of a beautiful day of meditation, bike riding, fishing and fulfillment that ends long after sunset. And your nighttime entertainment is a crystal clear star show that you’ve never seen under city lights.

About Cookie Lopez & Danny Atkins

After many years in the corporate world, Danny and I put all of our energy AND relaxation into a little Island Paradise that we would like to share with you.

Cookie Lopez & Danny Atkins purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Cookie Lopez & Danny Atkins chose Midway

We love the feeling of the trees nestled on the property, giving you an incredible feeling of serenity and relaxation. We saved this property by maintaining the natural beauty while renovating this adorable spacious Lodge among the trees. Enjoy the serenity or a fun filled activity day. Pets are always welcome!

What makes this cottage unique

The Lodge is set among the most beautiful Spanish Moss filled trees! When you sit on the front screen porch or the back deck, you can't help but feel the serenity around you. One of the most unique things about The Lodge is that you can enjoy the ultimate escape and relaxation, try the adventurous side of things, or a little bit of both! There are SO many things to do! Please enjoy our private dock on the Jones Creek that runs into the Atlantic * just 1 mile from the Lodge. You can fish, swim, float, kayak, explore the Island 'golf cart style', take a boat ride to the Island Beaches for the day, charter a fishing boat and catch Flounder, Redfish, Black Drum and more, ride bikes, go play a round of Golf, lay out in the sun just looking at the incredible marshes and views, enjoy a yummy Low Country Boil (please pre-order), check out the local shops, cook smores on a campfire, relax in the hot tub, read a book while listening to the wind blow....

Please ask your Hostess Cookie about prices/rentals and other activities that interest you.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute trip to get away and relax. Cookie was awesome. She went out of her way to make sure that we enjoyed everything. The lodge is in a great secluded area. Access to the dock on the salt water river was awesome!! Spent a lot of time fishing. Caught some sharks and flounder. Also had a great blue crab dinner complements of the crab trap at the dock. The lodge is convenient to Savannah. We spent a day exploring the historic city and had a blast. Thank you cookie for allowing me to stay here. I will definitely be back!!

Also, thank you for leaving the Lodge so Clean! Please come see me soon, we will be waiting for your return and I have purchased some more crab traps and I am looking into putting some Rod holders on the dock:)
