This is how you are treated on this island, like royalty. You are picked up at the dock and your baggage is loaded and unloaded to your room. You are met at the island dock and given a very short overview of all the island has to offer. We arrived on the 4:30 pm boat . We stayed in the...

My mom and I stayed at LSSI for four nights at the end of June, and it really did feel like we were in on a secret. The island is so calm and beautiful that you forget about the real world for a spell. Even better, you actually learn something on this unique vacation! It's not like a regular all-inclusive...

If you're thinking about booking this trip- do it! Went with my other half, left the kids at home. I don't think they could handle the bugs. The bugs aren't really THAT bad, just take a lightweight long sleeved shirt and pants. LSSI keeps sunscreen and bug spray (containing deet and deet-free) by every door on the island. We found...

We did four nights @ LSSI, and loved every minute of it. If you want the typical spa/resort, this place is not you. But if you want to enjoy nature in a never logged maritime forest, an undeveloped 7 miles of beach, and some of the best birding, all while getting gourmet meals, this is your place! With a 32...

We just returned from a 4 night stay at LSSI. It was exactly what we were expecting and we had a great time. We enjoyed all the nature excursions, especially those lead by Britt and Stacia.

That title best describes it! Or perhaps: Coastal Natural Reserve with a 4 star treatment. My lady surprised me with this gift via Travel Zoo for my 50th BD present. We spent 2013 Memorial Day Monday through Wednesday on the Island. Neither of us knew what to expect, and were both unexpectedly and very happily surprised with the entire experience!...

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your birthday trip and found the Little St. Simons Island experience to be better than you expected. Yes, being a small all-inclusive resort with a multitude of daily outdoor activities and family style meals, I can see how you could call it "adult camp." We do our best to make our guest...

I have stayed at LSSI five or six times throughout the years. I live in Savannah, about 70 miles away, so I am familiar with the weather, the flora and fauna, and the insect life.

Decided to try this adult camp with luxury staff and food as a change because of included activities. Unfortunately we had a very unusual weather episode for spring in the southeast with 4 days of continuous rain storm. That limited our activities to hiking and biking because the wind was too strong to enjoy the beach or kayaking or boating....

Looking for a quiet, relaxing alternative to beach condos and crowds, we discovered the lovely hidden jewel called Little Saint Simon's Island and its sole retreat, The Lodge.
