Y’all Come Inn Some More!

Y’all Come Inn Some More!  Another fabulous way to beat the holiday rush is to kick back and relax with a Fall getaway to Paula Deen’s Tybee Island Beach House!

Y'all Come Inn Some More

You are now invited to enjoy Paula’s personal beach home in November and December.  It’s off-season and a little quiet before the holiday season kicks off, so check your calendar and come on down during these available dates:

Mermaid Sightings in Tucson!

We’ve got Mermaid Sightings in Tucson, Arizona!  Jackie, one of our West Coast Mermaids-At-Large, spotted this all the way out west!

McNesby’s East Coast Super Subs in Tucson, AZ!

“This photo was taken in Tucson at a bar/restaurant called McNesby’s. It’s a Philadelphia place – the guy is a transplant and wanted to have a Philadelphia dive bar that makes great Philly cheese steaks (they are GREAT!) and feels like Jersey Shore (it does)….. And of course, when I saw this sign on the bathroom, I had to send it to you since you post photos of mermaids on your blog….. this one would be FABULOUS… lol…”

– Jackie C., Los Angeles CA

Thanks, Jackie!  We’re sending coastal waves to our new friends at McNesby’s!  We know Mermaids are everywhere, coast to coast!  If you experience Mermaid Sightings be sure to email the photo(s) to diane@mermaidcottages.com and you could be featured in a future blog post, too!

Heron Hideaway

If you’ve never been to Tybee Island, now’s a great time to try us out!  Maybe you’ve always wanted to stay in a special cottage, but the cost has been a little above your budget.  Well, the summer beach crowds are gone and all you have to do is come experience our Cottage Charm and Coastal Calm.  Prices are always lower in the off-season and everybody gets a discount! …

Buckhead Diner Yellow Corn Muffins

Who knew some good, old-fashioned, down home cookin’ could come from one of the most popular restaurants in Atlanta?  If you’ve ever eaten the Buckhead Diner’s Yellow Corn Muffins it’s not surprising at all!

I guess my server got tired of me going on about how wonderful they were, so he disappeared into the kitchen and came back out with the recipe.  “I guarantee that  if you follow this recipe you can make these, too“.  He told the truth, so I’m sharing it with y’all, too!

You’ll love these Buckhead Diner Yellow Corn Muffins and that’s no corn pone!

Be sure to add this recipe to your other Mermaids In The Kitchen recipes!

Brooks Cottage: Perfect House

FALL is a wonderful time to experience Brooks Cottage, the perfect house!

Brooks Cottage: Perfect House

“Absolutely the best vacation rental I’ve ever had. My daughter was married over the weekend that we rented and the house made a perfect honeymoon suite(although the whole family was there) and it provided a beautiful space for both families to spend time together without crowding. House is gorgeous. We had kids sleep on the sleeping porch…and it turned out perfect. Lovely and comfortable house, amenities, distance from beach, screened porches, game room, are all perfect. Mermaid Cottage staff is outstanding… will never look anywhere else at Tybee!” -Sally, Colbert GA …
