Sea Stars In Tybee Island

sea stars in tybee islandOh, the stars you’ll see in Tybee Island.  Star light.  Star bright.  Sea Stars circa 1932.

Sea Stars Cottage is our most recent addition to our historic Tybee cottages collection.  We love the original heart pine wood on the walls and floors.

We adore the large wrap around porch with eight rocking chairs.  Sometimes, we go over and sit in each one and dream.

You’ll love that it’s located along the breath taking south end of Tybee Island.  Imagine lazy days of strolling the one block to the beach and the two blocks to “downtown Tybee”.

Tybee Is a Rock-N-Roll Kind of Place

tybee is a rock-n-roll kind of placeTybee is a Rock-N-Roll kind of place and we like to get movin’.  The Rock-N-Roll Marathon Savannah sprints into town November 8 and 9 and you need to lace up and run the course with us!

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is the ‘World’s Largest Running Series’ with more than 500,000 runners taking part in 28 destination events around the world. What started as a simple idea in 1998 soon transformed the U.S. running landscape by infusing the race course with live bands, cheer teams and entertaining water stations. The outdoor festivals encapsulate cities in their entirety and culminate with a finish line festival featuring a concert headlined by some of the best music acts around. Over the history of the series, charity partners have raised more than $300 million through the events for a variety of worthy causes. Today, the series of entertainment themed marathons and half-marathons continues to enjoy great appeal for the traveling runner, tremendous local support and has firmly established itself as a dynamic running platform.read more
