Overview

Italianate-style boutique stay in Georgia’s Golden Isles featuring a stunning rooftop terrace with Atlantic views

The Lowdown

The decor might strive for a luxe European vibe–brocade furnishings, gilded mirrors, ornate friezes, pastoral oil paintings–but the large one-bedroom suites with their generous bathrooms offer space on a scale that can be difficult to find on the continent. Head to the Rooftop restaurant and lounge to nosh on down-home favorites like fried green tomatoes, okra and Cajun pork chops, all served with a side of inspiring Atlantic views. Masseuses can make suite calls for pampering treatments on your own private verandah.

In the Area

Georgia’s so-called “Golden Isles,” located off the coast midway between Savannah and Jacksonville, offer year-round balmy weather and a wealth of biodiversity, from marshy wetlands to rivers and the mighty Atlantic ocean. St. Simon’s is the largest barrier island of the group, exuding the kind of Spanish moss-draped romance that Southern dreams are made of. Walk the 129 steps to the top of the Lighthouse Museum, devoted to the island’s 1872 maritime icon, then take a boat tour to spot dolphins and explore the scenic waterways before chowing down on authentic barbecue at Southern Soul, a retro joint specializing in rib-sticking specialties like beef brisket, pulled pork, and cornbread.

Disappointing Service
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Stayed here November, 2018. Left behind 2 fairly expensive articles of clothing. Called immediately after returning home and was told they would ship to me and charge my credit card. Long story short, after a month had passed and 3 more phone calls, I received a package in the mail. Was not my clothing. On every call I told them I left a pair of shorts and logoed golf shirt. I received a hat, pair of jeans and robe. Told them I received the wrong items. Have never heard back from them. Disappointed and frustrated. I give up. I won't be staying there again.

2nd visit just as good as 1st

Ocean Lodge is a beautiful, relaxing place to visit for a few days. This was our 2nd visit and we hope to be back many, many more times. The rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated beautifully. The staff is friendly and helpful in all ways. This trip we tried the restaurant. The food was great. It's a small menu but with something for everyone and every budget. Has lots of small plates plus regular dinner entrees. Has continental breakfast only, but it is delicious and fresh with the addition of a hostess, Gloria, who will start your day with friendliness, charm and lots of laughs. She is precious.

Cool old world decor hotel

Place is a bit far out from the main area and restaurants, but staff were really friendly. We each got a room/suite. Very large. Each had a tub jacuzzi. Spend an hour soaking. After 4 hours on bicycles it was welcomed. Had drinks upstairs on the top floor bar. Great bartender. Good drinks. Returned after dinner for a nightcap. Breakfast was nothing special and probably should have found a traditional breakfast restaurant. Otherwise give the stay two thumbs up.

Wonderful !!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Ocean Lodge and had the most memorable anniversary celebration to date. Jackie did an excellent job accommodating our needs and making our experience extremely special. The room was amazing, the parking was easily accessible and secure and the location near the beach was breathtaking. We enjoyed having breakfast on the patio and the lady that waited on us made us feel right at home. We cannot wait to return. Thank you, Jackie, for making our stay at Ocean Lodge exceptional!
