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.
