The exhibit, entitled “The Muse,” features photographs taken by Christopher throughout Fort Pulaski and Cockspur Island. The show will present 15 individual mounted and framed pieces along with a 3’ x 5’ composite of 32 images, all taken with an iPhone.   Mermaid Cottages has just the right window of opportunity open for you to come and be inspired by The Muse.  Our Horsepen Creek Cottage & Dock circa 1949 is available July 20 and 30, so come be apart of our vibrant arts and social scene and then come back later when you can stay longer.

Horsepen Creek Cottage & Dock circa 1949 is ideal for families, girls getaways or even just a getaway for two.  Access the beach with a 15-minute walk or a quick bike or car ride.


This cottage is located directly on Horsepen Creek with a 175-foot dock for bird watching, fishing, crabbing, shrimping and kayaking. Wake up with a cup of coffee on your private dock and watch for birds, including great blue herons, green herons, egrets, wood storks, and osprey. Sometimes, dolphins will entertain you as they swim near the dock looking for fish. Experience the ebb and flow of tides and launch your kayak at high tide to explore the marsh.

The back yard is fully fenced in, making it great for small children and small dogs. The covered outdoor patio with a ceiling fan and festive white-strung lights faces the marsh for incredible sunsets. Light a toasty fire in the outdoor terra cotta chimenea while glamping under the stars.
