Hello, and welcome to our family River House. We’re glad you stopped by. Our River House faces due east and is located directly on the Sapelo River in Pine Harbor, a quaint and quiet community in northern McIntosh County, Georgia.
The fully furnished 3 bedroom 2 bath house awaits you and your family to create some lifelong memories just as we have and continue to do today. All you need to bring is yourselves and a change of clothes. Grocery stores and restaurants are just minutes away along with Shell Creek Seafood for retail purchase of fresh local seafood. Amenities located on this almost 2 acre property include a private pool, private dock, shaded deck and plenty of outdoors for children to play and explore.
Bring your boat! The Pine Harbor Marina is open to launch your boat and fill all of your fishing needs. Then tie up at the private dock in front of the house. If you choose not to bring your boat, numerous local charter captains are available for fishing, casting and day trip excursions. Kayak rentals and tours are also available.
Downtown Shellman Bluff is a mere 5 minutes away. There you will find a sleepy little fishing village with an excellent choice of dining options such as Hunter’s Café, Blackbeard Cove and Speed’s Kitchen. Sapelo Hammock Golf Club is also located in Shellman Bluff. This challenging and scenic 18 hole course is carved out of the pristine coastal Georgia landscape. Enjoy breathtaking marsh views while play is routed through fairways lined with majestic live oak trees adorned with Spanish moss.
Plan a day trip to take the ferry to Sapelo Island and explore the Big House, the Lighthouse and the pristine beaches. The Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge to the north and Butler Island to the south are just minutes away for birding and various other types of wildlife viewing. For the history buffs, historic Darien is barely a 15 minute drive to the south. McIntosh County history dates back to the days of General James Oglethorpe. Some of the historic locations to visit include the grave of General McIntosh in Pine Harbor, Colonial Fort King George, the waterfront Tabby Ruins and Ashantilly in Darien, not to mention the smallest Church in America at South Newport.
With Savannah 45 minutes to the north and St. Simons and Jekyll Islands 45 minutes to the south, day trips for shopping, sightseeing or to the beach can be an added bonus to your stay. Thank you for stopping by and please contact us with any concerns.

It was beautiful. Everything we were looking for .
The property is beautiful ..very country but that we love. It was extremely clean and even when the tide is out you still have water to fish and crab. We will definitely be renting this property again
This place is amazing, it's even better than in the pictures!
Thank you, Ken for letting us stay at your beautiful river home.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for taking such good care of our River House!! We hope you will consider us in the future and come again.
Peaceful with plenty of space.
Loved our stay. Home had everything we needed. Lots of space, huge yard, great deck and a fabulous view.
My family really enjoyed our stay at Ken's river house. The views from the dock were amazing & the pool is absolutely a bonus on a hot Georgia day! The house is very clean & comfortable. Ken is very easy to work with. Would love to have a home in this setting. This Georgia coast gal misses the smell of the marsh & this environment! Beautiful!
Thank you!!! I am pleased that you and your family enjoyed your time at the River House. We are very appreciative of the care y'all took of our home and the property and we look forward to your return!!! Thanks again.
Great Family Weekend!
Ken, We enjoyed our entire weekend in your home. The kids loved the pool which was very clean and refreshing. We saw dolphins our first morning there and also had fun fishing off the dock where we caught several small sharks, whiting, stingrays, and crabs. The house was very comfortable and we had plenty of room to enjoy some family time along with our pets. Very clean home and a kitchen that was well stocked. Quiet and peaceful for sure. Nice to meet your family member. Altman's serves a great breakfast! Hope to make this an annual visit with our family.
We are so happy that your family enjoyed their time at the River House. It is truly a peaceful place where families can spend some quality time together. The spaciousness of the property and the outdoors as a whole allows everyone to do their own thing so to speak and hopefully not encroach on one another. We look forward to your return. Thanks for coming!!!
Off the grid oasis!!
This place is as beautiful as it is relaxing!! Very clean and comfortable. The owner was great to deal with through the whole process. Close to St. Simon's and Jekyll Islands without the cost or claustrophobic quarters. This place was awesome and highly recommend it to those looking for a great family experience.
Thank you so much for the compliments! We wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments. We would love for you to come visit us again!
