Porch sitting is definitely a Southern tradition and a great rocking chair is all that’s needed to get into a rhythm.



Easy, breezy Tybee Island porches…

I Dwell in Possibility – Emily Dickenson

“I dwell in Possibility—
A fairer House than Prose—
More numerous of Windows—
Superior—for Doors—

Of Chambers as the Cedars—
Impregnable of Eye—
And for an Everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky—

Of Visitors—the fairest—
For Occupation—This—
The spreading wide of narrow Hands
To gather Paradise—”

― Emily Dickinson

What better barrier island to dwell on than Tybee Island, and what better place to dwell on Tybee Island than a Mermaid Cottage!
Summer into fall, Mermaid Cottages make your stay just that much… more. So, come dwell with us, for 2 days or 2 weeks or longer. Let’s be possible together.
