Boomer is a Star!

     We are so proud of all our sponsored dogs…but today we have a star on our list! Boomer, along with our sponsorship program here at Mermaid Cottages, was featured September 16th as a Dog Star over at Dog Star Daily!

     Dog Star Daily is a cool site for dog lovers, with tips and advice on everything from welcoming a new puppy to behavior and nutrition. They also have the Dog Star photo section where you can submit a dog for star status, or vote on stars already posted. Of course, we are just elated to see our pup on the list of dog stars!

     We couldn’t be prouder, and what a great way to help get the word out about our Beach Bum Biscuits. Congratulations Boomer…way to go!

Mermaid Tales: Sanford’s Place

Sanford’s Place Cottage

     Last week we showed you a sneak peek of our newest addition, Sanford’s Place. Well, now that little cottage is all set for it’s first visitors! From the vintage decor and furniture, to the 1960s television, Sanford’s place is a retro delight!

     The fun of downtown might only be five minutes away, but the cottage is still a quiet place to relax and unwind. Whether you are looking for the downtown beaches or the Back River, they are both a leisurely eight minute stroll from your cottage.

     So plan a trip back in time! Sanford’s Place Cottage invites you to return to a simpler time…and a slower pace. See you there!

My weekend to rejunivate

It’s been a long year.  I love and adore my business ( though that really isn’t the word for it, it’s much more my passion and reason I’m here in this world) but the spring and summer of having so many visitors and guests has taken it’s toll.  I’m tired- actually a capital T.

Travel and time away always makes me perk up- even though I truly love my cottage- which is a nest for me- and really am passionate about Tybee- when it’s still in the 80’s and 90’s in September- I’m ready for the cooler weather.  ( note to our visitors- September is the best time to be on Tybee for that same reason- it’s still hot and beach weather plus its so much quieter!!!)

My great friend Karyn from Miami Beach- she was my fellow traveler to DC for the inauguration two years ago- has been dying to see Asheville, so we planned a long weekend where she could come and see this part of the world and I could see her and still visit with daughter Katie.

Everything worked out as planned- including this amazing fall weather.  I”m sitting here with Katie in her cabin where she lives- no tv so we both have our laptops going and listening to the sounds of the fall outside- yes- because our windows are open,a great weekend of junkin’, shopping, eating great meals, visiting the Western NC State Fair ( and eating friend sweet potato pie- we’re still in the south you know) was just what I needed.   I”m exciting to get back to Tybee, work on some new projects ( including our first vacation rental in downtown Historic Savannah) and embrace the fall!

Stay tuned for some new updates- all of you coming to pirate fest in October- be sure you have your costume ready so you can join us in the parade-  our Tybee fall is almost here!
