Beach Bum Biscuits!

Southeastern Guide Dogs’ Puppy Sponsorship Program

Your stay with Mermaid Cottages will continue the efforts to support Southeastern Guide Dogs’ Puppy Sponsorship Program, which make it possible for disabled individuals to realize their independence through the use of a service dog. These programs also assist returning soldiers soldiers with a variety of needs including post traumatic stress disorder.

Are There Mermaids In Scotland?

Are there Mermaids in Scotland?

You bet! We have the photographs to prove it!

Our wonderful Mermaid Melissa and Mermaid Judy and their mermen recently took a trip of a lifetime from our little hamlet by the sea all the way to the United Kingdom where they made their way through Scotland to Loch Ness and to Invergarry Castle.  Wherever they went they were admired, but was it for their obvious beauty or was because of what they were wearing?   Hmmm.

Now you can sport our signature Mermaid Tees, too.  Of course, we hope you’ll come visit soon and pick one up (or more) while you’re here, but if you can’t wait just get yours from Seaside Sisters!

Home For The Holidays!

Have you ever stopped to check where some of the products you purchase are actually manufactured?

This year, Mermaid Cottages would like to spotlight products and services created and produced here in America.  And, with the 2nd Annual Support Small Business Day approaching on November 26th,  we would especially like to encourage support of America’s small businesses.  Each of us has the power to affect change and take an active part in creating jobs and stimulating our economy.  If everyone pledged to “shop small” and made just one purchase from any of America’s small businesses, the impact would be huge!  Support of America’s small businesses boosts local economy and helps preserve neighborhoods.  So, MADE IN AMERICA and SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS are our mottos for this holiday season.  And, what better way to spend the holidays than a “Mermaid Cottages for the holidays” vacation?  An opportunity to support both MADE IN AMERICA and one of America’s small businesses; an all-American holiday celebration on historic Tybee IslandTybee Island is home to a host of small businesses including Mermaid Cottages…. read more

Tis The Season To Buy American!

Have you ever stopped to check where some of the products you purchase are actually manufactured or created?

How many times do you automatically pick up a product and purchase it without reading where it’s produced and without knowing whether it helps support the American economy and American workers?  It’s not always easy, but it’s a good habit we should all practice when we can.

This year Mermaid Cottages wants to spotlight products and services created and produced here and we want to encourage everyone to take the time to look closer at purchases we all make.  We’ll be sharing our favorite Made In America goods and we hope you will, too.  When you find great products you’d like to help promote please share them with us on our Facebook page, on Twitter and with comments on our blogs.

Each of us has the power to affect change and to take an active part in creating jobs and stimulating the economy.  We’ll start the ball rolling by announcing that Mermaid Cottages is offering Gift Certificates for stays in our cozy cottages and historic homes.  You can purchase Mermaid Cottages Gift Certificates in any denomination or you can design your own Gift Certificate for an entire stay.  We can even help you with Gift Certificates for specific cottages!  And, don’t forget you can even purchase our world famous Mermaid Cottages Morning Bliss Coffee, our all natural Beach Bum Biscuits Dog Treats, our Note Cards and Calendars created by celebrated artist Fifi Flowers and how about our new J-Prons!
