About Little Saint Simons Island
One of the crown jewels of Georgia’s famed Golden Isles, Little St. Simons Island offers 7 miles of pristine beaches and 11,000 acres of undeveloped wilderness for exploration and relaxation. Privately owned and accessible only by boat, The Lodge on Little St. Simons Island has retained the charm and unhurried pace of coastal living. Moss-draped live oaks and glistening marshes surround comfortable accommodations for no more than 32 overnight guests.

Guests have been visiting Little St. Simons Island to experience its natural beauty, sweeping coastal landscapes, and abundant wildlife since the island opened to the public in 1979. Although the Lodge has won numerous hospitality awards, the number one attraction has always been the island itself. Conservation organizations, too, have long recognized the importance of the island’s natural, intact habitats, and healthy populations of rare and threatened wildlife. In 2015, the owners of Little St. Simons Island donated a conservation easement to The Nature Conservancy on the entire 11,000 + acre island. This easement ensures that the preservation efforts that have been practiced by the island’s owners for many years will be permanent. Our guests and conservationists alike can now rest assured that the natural beauty and the ecological integrity of the island will forever be protected.

In addition to being a model for conservation, Little St. Simons Island is committed to being a sustainable operation. Our seed-to-table program is one example. Fruits, vegetables, and herbs are grown in our organic garden and used by our chefs in preparing delicious meals for our guests. Fresh local seafood is also a staple in our meals.

The island is a paradise for nature lovers and offers a host of recreational, naturalist-led activities including birding, boating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, interpretive tours, beach combing, fishing, and swimming. Creature comforts include gracious accommodations in six charming cottages, superb family style dining, and genuine Southern hospitality.
