Mermaid Tales: The Enlisted Men’s Mess Hall

     Last March, we had the pleasure of meeting Layla and Kevin Palmer, from The Lettered Cottage blog! They are the super talented team behind the decorating at our Screened Inn Cottage, part of the duplex known as The Mess Hall. We were so excited when the cottage owner, Pam, asked Layla and Kevin back to Tybee to work their magic once again, this time in the side known as The Enlisted Men’s Mess Hall! We were even lucky enough to spend some time with Pam and three of her four sisters while Layla and Kevin were  in town.

  
     The Mess Hall was originally built as one of three mess halls for what was then Fort Screven, but this cottage also has a long and colorful history as a boarding house. Now a duplex, The Mess Hall features tall ceilings, lots of light from huge windows in every room, beautiful hardwood floors, and a huge screened porch. Either side of The Mess Hall is perfect for a family retreat. And since The Mess hall is pet friendly, your four legged friends can even enjoy the trip!

     The cottage is located on the beautiful north end of the island, just five minutes from the Tybee Island Lighthouse Station, the yummy North Beach Grill, and the beautiful sands of North Beach. If all of that isn’t enough to entice you, look at this wonderful video Layla and Kevin made!

     Aren’t they something? You can find all sorts of awesome things over at The Lettered Cottage blog, so don’t forget to visit them there!
     Is Tybee calling your name yet? You know want to, so why not make plans to visit? Come and see why so many have fallen in love with The Mess Hall!
