Help Us Name that Cottage!

It’s that time again! We have a new cottage in our family here at Mermaid Cottages, and we need your help giving it a name! This contest will work the same as our last one, with a poll over on our Mermaid Cottages Facebook Page. Remember, you can’t vote here! If you want your vote to count, you have to cast it in the Facebook Poll! We already have the names to choose from, we just need your help picking the best one!

It might be a little easier for you to choose a name if you know more about the cottage…so here’s a little background! This lovely home was built in 1942 and is now owned by the daughter of the previous owner, distinguished sculptor Weis Cain Snell of Atlanta. Mr. Snell worked with muesums all over, including Atlanta Cyclorama, and he actually helped design and create Tybee’s own museum!

Our new cottage is located at 1012 Jone Avenue, only a four block stroll to the beach! The home has been fully restored and freshly decorated, and it will be available for guests starting Memorial Day weekend. The cottage has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a beautiful screened porch, and is pet friendly! You and your pet will enjoy the fenced back yard, complete with a hammock under palm trees. Just look at these wonderful pictures!

Now, if you are interested in planning a trip to this cottage, please call 912-655-6525 or email me at diane@mermaidcottages.com! But remember, we have to name this beauty! The list of names to think about is:

  • Little Acorn Cottage
  • Shady Oak Cottage
  • Made in the Shade
  • Shady Acres

Remember, don’t vote here… Click HERE to head on over to the official Facebook Poll to cast your vote for your favorite name! The poll will close and the contest will end Monday, April 25th, at 6 p.m. so make sure you vote before then! We can’t wait to see which name comes out on top!

Mermaids in Our Midst: Linda Bray

Today, I want to send a big Thank You out to our fellow Mermaid, Linda Bray. Linda has been with us at Mermaid Cottages for three years and she has really become part of our family. She has been been a huge help in just about every facet of the business, from cleaning to social media, and we appreciate everything she does! She has also worked over at our favorite coastal shop, Seaside Sisters, and we loved seeing her smiling face there when we walked in.

Linda is leaving us this week to move to Florida to be closer to her family there. Linda, we love you so much and will miss your cheerful, witty ways and smiling face! Good luck to you and remember, Tybee is always here, so come back for a visit sometime!
