untouched for centuries, Little St. Simons Island is a privately owned
10,000-acre barrier island along the Georgia coast. A rich and varied
natural world, its pristine beaches, maritime forests, shimmering marshes
and tidal creeks await your exploration.
The owners of Little St. Simons Island
have welcomed family and friends since the early 1900s. Today, the
tradition continues. We welcome guests to experience a rare combination of
complete privacy in an unspoiled wilderness - with the thoughtful service
and southern hospitality of our professional staff.
"Preservation and solitude are the
watchwords on this privately owned 10,000-acre barrier island...This is an
amiably laid-back and uniquely fascinating hideaway for nature lovers..."
Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, July 1998
St. Simons Island provides a natural habitat for a diverse and abundant
community of wildlife including alligators, fallow deer, dolphin, river
otter, armadillos, and over 220 species of birds.

To dine at The Lodge on Little St. Simons
Island is not just to experience the tastes of this low-country southern
island, but to immerse oneself in the culture, history and beautiful
surroundings the Island has to offer. One of the richest estuaries in the
United States surrounds and meanders through Little St. Simons Island in
miles of salt marshes, rivers and tidal creeks all feeding the Atlantic
Ocean. These bountiful natural resources spawned what is commonly known as
low-country cuisine, rich in local ingredients and drawing heavily from
the surrounding waters for a variety of seafood and shellfish.
