Space 1,400 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 2 nights

Overview

About the property

Deepwater views from the dock - and a mile from marina!

Large sitting porches with one screened in to enjoy the evening after a full day on the water or golfing 18 holes. Private dock privileges and minutes from ICW Marker 145 in Sapelo Sound. Three bedrooms and two full baths with luxury linens and fluffy towels. Comfortably accommodates 6 guests and could have children on blow up queen mattress. Crab and fish right off the dock and cook it up for dinner. Explore the unspoiled beaches of Blackbeard, Sapelo, St. Catherine's Ossabaw and Cabretta Islands. Stroll under our live oaks covered with resurrection fern and dripping with Spanish moss. Watch the dolphins parade through the waterways and the sea and shore birds feed in the salt water rivers and acres of marsh. The area is great for walking, biking, or golf carting to take it all in. Moderate temperatures are featured year round. Book a charter to not waste your time with 'fishing' for fish, and then you can do it on your own thereafter! Coastal Relaxation, Rejuvenation, and Refreshing are just a few comments we have heard from our guests during and after their visit to our Tabby Cottage. Come see for yourself. The property is set off to the west of the river and the property owner's private home. There is a walking path that will take you to the dock and all the fishing gear, kayaks, pool and your boat if you dock it up at the dock. The swimming pool is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It is also located next to the owners home on the side for privacy. The owner will not be swimming in the pool while guests are in the Tabby Cottage. Call if you have more questions.

About Chris Reddick

The owners Dave and Jane Gilmour will do their very best to make your stay at the Tabby Cottage memorable and as relaxing as possible. They have a passion for the water and Coastal Georgia and wanted to share their Tabby Cottage with you.

The owner has the confidence in our Salt Coast Properties & Outfitters business to manage her home for vacation rental to guests who would like to visit Shellman Bluff. We pride ourselves in nothing but the best for out guest. We thank you for visiting us and welcome you to Coastal Georgia!

Why Chris Reddick chose Georgia

Belly up your boat to a private dock after launching in one of 3 marinas close by or 2 public boat ramps. Enjoy the kayaks, bicycles, swimming pool, grill, home amenities galore and we believe you will be back!!

What makes this house unique

Coastal Southeast Georgia with many amenities at your fingertips and within a mile or so; yet close enough to the 'big city' activities if you care to partake. Many do no wander farther than our local grocery store upon arrival. Some don't even get in their cars after they arrive. Either way, we believe you will see our 'Shifting Sands and a Slow Pace on the Georgia Coast' New York Times article in person.

Totally Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded our expectations! It was everything they indicated, plus some. I originally had a concern about the length of the dock to the water, but the hike was Great for me and my pups. For the ones that couldn't handle the walk, they offered a golf cart :)

We plan to go back of they'll have us again.

Owner's Response: Thank you TF for your explicit comments regarding the Tabby Cottage. We are thrilled you enjoyed your visit to the Georgia Coast and Shellman Bluff. One can sense the relaxation and rejuvenation you experienced at the cottage and "on the water" with your notes. The dock is a great place to gather thoughts and take in all the views, peace, and tranquility of the Shellman Bluff serenity. YES, WE will WELCOME you back at any time.

Perfect spot for families looking to get off the beaten path!

We loved the Tabby Cottage! Spent mornings and nights on the dock out on the Julienton River. Rocked on the big front porch and enjoyed island hopping on Sapelo Sound. Since we didn't find on buried treasure on Blackbeard Island, had to go back to work, but we're already dreaming of our next trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you our new North Carolina friends for the review of the Tabby Cottage. Music to our ears when we read of folks relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating during their visit to the Coastal Georgia Shellman Bluff area. We are hearing and seeing more folks discover our area and all of the nature to take in during the their stay. We are thrilled to see folks not "needing" all the hoop-la commercialized activities. Reconnecting with self, family, and nature is our goal. We believe you met that and hope to have you as our guest again soon. Warm Salt Coast Regards, Chris Reddick and the Property Owners

Fishing Kayaks, bicycles, golf cart, crab traps, fishing poles and swimming pool available at The Tabby Cottage for guests. Guests can dine on their catch and grill out on the porch and never leave the property while enjoying the dock, water views, and peace and quiet. BUT....restaurants, golfing, marinas for your boat launching, and more are within a 1-2 mile golf cart ride. Dock your boat up at the Tabby Cottage dock for the weekend or week!! Take a car ride to the National Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge with your bikes or go on the walking trail. Visit neighboring islands by a charter on a boat or by car.

The swimming pool is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It is also located next to the owners home on the side for privacy. The owner will not be swimming in the pool while guests are in the Tabby Cottage.
