Beachview House: 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 who lived there in the 1920's). By the time the cottage started to be restored, it was so overgrown, that many folks didn't even know there was a building on the property. The house retains much of its historic charm; original hardwood flooring, great bead board walls and 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 St. Simons Island.

The Beachview House is located in the village/pier area and close to Neptune Park, great shopping, restaurants, the lighthouse, the theater, library and festival grounds. The Beachview House is within a half block of the water and you have ocean views from the porch and living room.

Saint Simons Facts: How is Saint Simons connected to the mainland? Saint Simons Island is a bridged island. It is connected to the mainland by a four lane causeway/bridge (no toll). The town on the mainland side of the bridge if Brunswick, Georgia. The island that is adjacent to and connected to Saint Simons Island by a small causeway is Sea Island (indeed, many of the Sea Island facilities are on St. Simons Island itself). You can access Little St. Simons Island via a boat and reservations from St. Simons Island. The next island south in the Georgia Golden Isles is Jekyll Island. Cumberland Island and Sapelo are also available for tour from nearby local ports, with reservations and boat access.
