Historic Charm: The house retains much of its historic charm (Floorplan)- original hardwood flooring - great beadboard walls - even the original claw foot tub! It is furnished with many comfortable antiques and high quality upholstery - but it is designed to be a place to put your feet up and relax to the pace of life that is Saint Simons Island.

The History: Beachview House was built in 1892 on Cumberland Island as three cottages. In 1923, it was floated down the Atlantic and reassembled in its present location as one cottage on St. Simons Island - back then it was called the Gramling Cottage, after the family that had it in the 1920's. By the time it was started to be restored, it was so overgrown, that many folks didn't even know there was a cottage on the property.

Community Pool / Waterpark Update: The new community waterpark complex opened in May 2009. Very nice new facility just across the street. Rates and more info.
