    Just finished reading some of your blogs. I was wondering how you got started doing these. They were interesting and shared quite a bit of historical info. Thank you for painting our little piece of heaven in such a great light.

  2. Ahoy, Stephen! Thank you for enjoying our blogs. Each cottage has its own soul and once you get to know them they begin to share their history and their charm with little coaxing!

    Hello All,
    Hope this email finds you all well. The wonderful state of Georgia is opening their doors to the public again and my wife and I are ready to visit. We are interested in staying in one of those beautiful cottages. It’s just my wife and I, so we need something small and cozy, close to a beach, if not beachfront. Please contact me if you can so maybe we can set up our stay.
