Tybee Island – Summertime is beach vacation time for many of us, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite old homes on Tybee Island, which used to be known as Savannah Beach. Stayed on the north end of Tybee on my last trip, and had a chance to really check out the Historic District around Ft. Screven and the Lighthouse. There are some great historic homes all around here! From a tin roofed cottage, to a big old house – Tybee has it all. Sun, sand, and historic homes – let’s go!
Taking a morning walk, had an opportunity to take in the homes on Officers Row. They all have a very similar floor plan, and were mostly built in the late 1800s. This first house has been converted into the Surf Song Bed & Breakfast. You can check out their website, which has some great pictures of the guest rooms here.
All these homes have huge front lawns, and a sidewalk that connects them. They all have a great view of the water!
They just keep going and going!
Moving inland from Officers Row, the homes may be a little bit smaller, but just as charming.
I love screened porches – probably because I’m a mosquito magnet, and screened porches sure do help with that!
With this being a former base, it’s so nice to see that a lot of it has been reused and repurposed into homes. This was the Enlisted Mens Mess Hall, which has been turned into a vacation rental, you can see some inside pics here.
Another B&B I walked by is the Lighthouse Inn, built in 1910. Just love the look of this place!
I had a chance a while back to tour the Head Keepers cottage of the Lighthouse, and have a full post and inside tour of it here.
As we wrapped up a good long walk on Tybee Island, Leroy was keeping an eye on everything at the Lighthouse!
Wishing everyone a happy 4th of July weekend! Thanks so much for reading the blog, I really appreciate it!
