About Melinda Roughton
We are empty-nesters with one son in college, and one son a lawyer in NYC. My husband and I have a commuter marriage. I live here on St. Simons Island and work as the Executive Director of Glynn County Family Connection (which works to benefit children and families in our community). My husband is the Managing Editor of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. We have a commuter marriage. My husband is a year or so away from retiring, and he travels most weekends, or I go up to Atlanta. We live in the main house here and rent the guest house. When guests are here, they have the entire garden and pool area in between the houses in total privacy. We stay at our house and in our front and side gardens. You won't see us, unless you want to.
Melinda Roughton purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Melinda Roughton chose Saint Simons Heights
A Cote Cottage has been lovingly and fully renovated with beautiful tongue and groove ceilings and huge french doors that open to the lush garden and pool. There is total privacy with a large secured fence, so dogs (not more than one or two) can roam freely and can't get out. The bathrooms have beautiful custom tile and it is beautifully decorated throughout. Our property is priced realizing that you will need to drive (about 5-`10 minutes to the beach). Or, ride your bike (about 15 minutes).
What makes this Cottage unique
A Cote Cottage has been lovingly and fully renovated with beautiful tongue and groove ceilings and large french doors that open to the lush garden and pool. There is total privacy with a large secured fence, so dogs (not more than one or two) can roam freely and can't get out. The pool is salt water, with a salt water hot tub attached. It is brand new with top-of the-line tiles and stone design. The bathrooms have new custom tile and it is beautifully decorated throughout. Our property is priced realizing that you will need to drive (about 5-`10 minutes to the beach). Or, ride your bike (about 15 minutes). Every guest has remarked on the total privacy and resort-like setting with the pool, hot tub and surrounding garden and palm trees that makes them want to just stay there and relax. There is a large outdoor shower so that you can watch the trees and sky while you wash! And, a gas grill allows for family cookouts while enjoying the pool and hot tub.

The place was perfect for the 5 of us. Had everything we needed. Great location for easy access. Very private with all the beautiful landscaping. Would stay there again!

This is our second summer at this cottage~looking forward to our third visit next summer. Melinda & Bert have created a beautiful oasis for their French Cottage. The beautiful garden pool is the cherry on top. Everything you could possibly need is provided.
Great location ~for the beach ~restaurants ~golf~ history all around.
My husband and I spent the month of February in St. Simons and enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage. The cottage is small, but very efficient in it's design and nicely appointed. The patio and pool are just beautiful. The location is perfect for dining out, shopping, exploring the island, bike riding and walking. The owners, Bert and Melinda are great hosts and very helpful, addressing any issues quickly......including recommending a Vet when our dog got sick! Tres' belle maison!

Always enjoy staying here, a home away from home! We love it!
A little piece of Heaven.
One of the most relaxing & enjoyable vacations we have had in a long time. This cottage met all of our needs & more. It is beautifully decorated inside as well as outside. The pool & gardens are exceptional & absolutely an oasis in the middle of a quiet neighborhood. Melinda & Bert are wonderful hosts who have made sure you have everything you need. The fenced in yard makes it worry free for your pets.
We enjoyed our stay so much we have already reserved for next Summer!
Historic Savannah and St. Augustine are day trips away from this amazing location. Cumberland Island, a beautiful, wilderness islands about an hour away and well worth the trip.
