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

They have a passion for the water and Coastal Georgia and wanted to share their Tabby Cottage with you.

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 Townsend
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.

Great place to stay while visiting Shellman Bluff
The Tabby Cottage was exactly what my family was looking for while staying at Shellman Bluff. All the rooms and bathrooms were clean and provided plenty of space to relax after a day on the water. Chris responded quickly to any questions and made booking and staying at the Tabby Cottage a breeze. My family would highly recommend staying here and will look forward to our next vacation to Shellman Bluff.
Very clean and beautiful
My family and I had a wonderful time while staying here. We crabbed and shrimped on the dock. Caught more than enough shrimp to be able to fish, fry, and have a low country boil. The owners are more than eager to help with any need you have. My son especially loved the pool. We definitely will be returning.
Thank you so much Mark for your review of the Tabby Cottage. We are glad you enjoyed our secret Coastal Shellman Bluff Georgia. Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate is what we like to hear through the reviews, and it was obvious you did all the above. Give me a call when you would like to come back to see us.
Warm Salt Coast Regards,
Chris Reddick and the Property Owners Dave and Jane

Perfect halfway spot
We have been looking for a place to meet my in laws half way between Florida and South Carolina. This place was absolutely perfect and allowed us to spend some quality family time together. We loved fishing off the dock and the kids had a blast in the golf carts and the pool. The owners were the nicest people and we enjoyed getting to know them as well.
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit to the Tabby Cottage and Shellman Bluff area. We love to hear how families reconnect, rejuvenate, and revitalize together. Please call us when you would like to return!
