Mermaid Tales: Nora’s Cottage c 1920
|703 2nd Avenue|
Welcome to Nora’s Cottage, a circa 1920 Tybee treasure! Nora’s mid-island location makes it the perfect place to be close to everything Tybee has to offer. You’ll enjoy a 3 block stroll to the beach, and the out door shower when you return and need to refresh after all that beach combing. The home has a screen porch in front, perfect for relaxing with a good book, or just watching island life pass by.
Nora’s Cottage is great for a family retreat, friend escape, or anyone just wanting to slow down and relax. The cottage sleeps six comfortably, but for those groups needing more room, the home is across the street from three of our other cottages: A Mermaid’s Tale, Basking Under the Tybee Sun, and Good Times. The quiet residential neighborhood is perfect for bicycle rides all over the island, so pack your wheels! Don’t want to bother with packing your bulky bike? Visit Tim’s Beach Gear for bicycles and anything else you might need during your stay on the island!
Don’t leave your furry friends behind at home either…Nora’s is pet friendly! Make sure you bring your best friends along. They are sure to enjoy the fenced in yard and the large deck for sun puddle naps!
This beautiful cottage has been selected to be on the National Register of Historic Places, but it holds an extra special place in the hearts of John and Ed, grandsons of the cottage’s namesake Grandma Nora. She lived here for many years. John and Ed spent many a summer in the cottage and have taken great pride in restoring the home. We can’t wait to share that love and care with you! Make your plans to visit Tybee and stay at Nora’s Cottage, you’ll be glad you did. This historic Tybee cottage is just waiting for you…see you soon!
