A Mini Morsel Session with Mermaid Cottages is your treat when you stay in a pet friendly cottage February 6-15, 2015!  That’s right.  Guests with dogs staying February 6-15, 2015 will receive a free photo shoot as part of your visit.  The photos will be sent to each guest electronically and you can also arrange to have them professionally printed for purchase.  Pets can sit for their own portraits and we’re okay if their well-behaved humans get in the pictures, too.  Most of our cottages are dog friendly and some of them are just purrfect for cats, too.  We’re celebrating Puppy Love, but your February stay can be just as cat-tastic, too.  Just check our collection for our cat friendly cottages or ask a Mermaid when you call.

A Whole Month of Puppy Love With Mermaid Cottages

a whole month of puppy love with mermaid cottagesFebruary will soon be here and this year it brings a whole month of Puppy Love with Mermaid Cottages!  You already know we feature pet friendly cottages, volunteer with pet rescues and sponsor puppies for Guide Dog and Service Dog training, so for a whole month we just want to focus on Puppy Love.  Certainly, some people will be making goo-goo eyes at someone special for Valentine’s Day and some will laissez ruler les bon temps for Mardi Gras Tybee.  We’re just a bit more partial to ear scratching and tail wagging and long walks with our best furiends.  It’s Puppy Love and we’re inviting your Wag Packs to come enjoy it, too!

Downtown Tybee

“She is a good woman. And while the phrase is enough to set my teeth on edge, there are moments when her virtue demands admiration.”

Staying near downtown Tybee is a lot like being unto the manor born.  On Sunday nights, you can bet our Mermaids are tuned in to Downton Abbey on GPB, but the rest of the time we’re working hard behind the scenes to create a most memorable stay for you.  Our cottage charm and coastal calm is evident from the smallest cottages to our grandest raised Tybee homes.  A stay in one of our grand dames is much like an outing with the Dowager Countess Violet.  Glorious with prestige, warm with treasured history and a bit of whit and whimsy waiting to greet you around every corner.  Such is the grace of our Dutton-Waller Cottage circa 1938.

“You are quite wonderful the way you see room for improvement wherever you look. I never knew such reforming zeal.”

This historic Tybee raised cottage was built by Mrs. Waller as her family’s summer home.  It has been beautifully restored and situated along the Back River District.  Our guests love the very easy walk to AJ’s Dockside Restaurant, the Alley III Kayak Launch …
