About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Welcome to the Heron Cottage!

This beautiful Island Cottage Home sits on a large piece of property in a perfect location near the Village. Walnut flooring, granite, a wood burning fireplace on a huge screened in porch make this a make this an absolutely luxurious island getaway!

This is not a second home with personal belongings in it, but rather a boutique cottage that we use exclusively for our guests at Island Cottage Company, a family owned business we started over 12 years ago! We have lots of repeat guests and are happy to provide references.

This 3 Bedroom, 3 bathroom home (sleeps 6) is located just a short walk from Mallery Park and the Village and Pier Area on St. Simons, which boasts wonderful pubs, restaurants, two parks, beach access and a perfect public pool, along with tennis courts and a GREAT little library. Guests rave about the high quality furnishings, linens and comfortable beds!

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and has easy access to the

many bicycle and walking paths that St. Simons Island has to offer.

The screened in back porch overlooks a large back yard with a wooded back drop behind the fence. Complete with an outdoor shower, it is the perfect place for entertaining. All the neighbors are wonderful people and we take care to ensure that our guests feel at home and respect the folks that live here permanently. Loud noise or parties are not appropriate for this area.

Wonderful place to stay on St. Simon's Island!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage - clean, spacious, well-equipped, and very convenient by car or bike to most of the attractions on the island. Michele is a thoughtful hostess and had wine and cheese waiting for us! And she kept in touch with us in case we needed anything. We would definitely stay in the Heron Cottage again.

Great property! Beautiful, wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

I was a guest of Heron Cottage for a week at the end of July 2016. From the time I reached out to inquire about dates and availability, to the time we departed, everything exceeded my expectations. The pictures and description online were absolutely reflective of the actual property. The home is immaculate, well appointed, and even the kitchen has one of everything you would need if you plan to cook. Also, I can't say enough about Michele and Scott and how welcoming and helpful they were.

The location of the home is in great proximity to everything. You could go just about everywhere on the island by bicycle. The screened in patio on the back of the home (with a fireplace) was a great place for breakfast in the mornings and to unwind in the evenings. We even turned on the fireplace very briefly for the kids to roast hot dogs and marshmallows for smores.

Scott and Michele clearly take pride in this home and the experience they provide their customers. They personify the definition of going above and beyond. All of the excellent reviews you see online for this property and their company are well deserved. If you are considering a vacation in Saint Simon's Island, you should absolutely consider Heron Cottage or any property owned by Island Cottage Company. You won't be disappointed.

The Heron Cottage Rental

  • 5 of 5

This cottage with 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, was very comfortable, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully furnished, they had a 4 burner gas grill which worked great, there is a grass lawn backyard which was perfect for the kids playing outaide, there is a great outdoor hot/cold shower, the large screened porch was perfect for outside dining, the dining table easily accomodated 6 people. The Owners were very accomodating-they even brought over a Keurig coffee maker (in addition to the regular coffee maker that was already there).There are even robes in two of the bedrooms! The cottage was very clean. The Owners supplied misc. items like laundry detergent, d.w. soap, basic spices, trash bags, etc. Overall the customer service was outstanding. We will definitely rent this cottage again!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family booked with Island Cottage Company for a little break from work over our spring break. It was exactly what we were hoping for. Michele met us when we arrived and spent time helping us choose where we would eat and what kinds of activities we might enjoy. The was wine and cheese waiting for us and the cottage was gorgeous! And I should mention that it was impeccably clean. We will definitely be back!

Girls week getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Heron is the perfect cottage for a vacation. Room for families and in our case, a weeks getaway for 3 friends. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. Peaceful and quiet neighborhood. Beautiful decor inside and the screened in back porch with fireplace is a dream to set out back and enjoy your dinner or evening glass of wine. Michele is always the perfect hostess and only a phone call away. We have also stayed in her other cottage The Seagull. You can't go wrong with either!
