Tybee Island – 10 Favorite Homes

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.

This cottage - love this!!  Check out the trim on the windows.

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!
