Mommas, don’t let your babies grow up without Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages. Children learn from doing and they learn from observing what you do. Take the time to model for your children that it’s beneficial to take time off from work and your routine and to discover and explore new adventures.
In fact, psychologists suggest mothers take breaks by going on mom-cations. For the best results, psychologists say moms should take off for at least two days. Now, we know everyone Mom could benefit from time away from everyday life, but it’s not always possible. So, whether you’re planning for a Mom-cation or a family fun getaway with the children, we’ve got everything you need to unplug.
Nora’s Cottage circa 1940
Nora’s is an adorable, historic, 1940’s cottage. It has a wonderful screened porch, an outdoor shower and a private back deck. Located on the bike trail, it’s just 3 short Tybee blocks from the beach!
Bike and Hike
Well, Tybee Island is only about 3 miles long, so it’s perfect for an adventure without moving your car. Our bike route is comprised of paths and safe streets that take you through our laid back neighborhoods and right onto the beach. The six-mile long McQueen’s Trail along highway 80 is also a favorite for biking and hiking.
How about a weekend workshop when you feel the need to be free of bondage to self. Here, you can explore how you grow in emotional maturity and learn to depend on a higher power. Some of the techniques will include Native American Talking Circles, Fireside Meetings, Beach Meditation, Essential Oils Workshops, a mini boot-camp for healthy lifestyles and how to create your own Mala or Talisman. You’ll even be eligible for a discount when you stay with Mermaid Cottages.
Redirect Your Story With Tours Through History
Head to Fort Pulaski to see live, daily cannon firings or immerse yourself in our island’s right history at Fort Screven. Climb to the top of Tybee Island Lighthouse to gain new insight or drop your worries right onto the water’s edge and let the currents take them away.
Again, a Mom-cation just for yourself may not be possible in your situation. You can still indulge yourself and bring along the children, if you need. We have larger vintage and historic cottages, too. They’re big enough to provide a private boudoir for you and plenty of room for everyone else to spread out.
This historic raised cottage has been beautifully restored and recently updated. Rock-a-bye your soul along the large wraparound porch and enjoy a leisurely stroll down to AJ’s Dockside, the Alley 3 Kayak Launch, and the Back River Fishing Pier.
It’s necessary for your children to understand and respect your time to recharge and renew. It’s also important for them to observe how you plan family time away from their normal routines and for them to see how much you enjoy a Mom-cation, too. Mommas, don’t let your babies grow up without Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages. Give us a call. We’re always happy to help you unplug, indulge, commiserate and recharge.
