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.
St. Simons is a very Fido-friendly place. There are lots of walking and bike paths
under the canopy of ancient live oak trees. Fido can play fetch in the fenced-in yard
and the parks and the beach are within walking distance.
- Monogrammed dog dishes provided for your use during your stay.
- Doggie walk bags.
- Fully fenced-in yard.
- Outside shower and foot wash.
- Doggie linens to use over furniture.
Check when festivals are happening such as the Sunshine Festival, antiques shows, Arts
and Crafts Festival, the Sea Island Festival, or any of the other festivals help in
Neptune Park. Beachview House is literally across the street from the festival area.
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.
