THE COTTAGES OF SAINT SIMONS ISLAND


Dictionary.com defines cottage as:  a small, modest house at a lake, mountain resort, etc,. owned or rented as a vacation home.  I think the title of this post should be more along the lines of "The Mansions of..." or "The Anything but Cottages of..."  A lot of the homes here ARE second homes.  Some are rentals, some not.  Not all the homes are as grand as most I photographed.  Some are down right dilapidated.  Still, the majority of the homes on Saint Simons are beautiful. And large.  The following caught my eye for one reason or another.

Enjoy!

UPDATE:  
I agree with everyone who left a comment.  The first cottage is my favorite, as well.

Oh these are very nice! I will take the first one! Do you think it would cost much to move it to Fl??

Have a great day!

Oh Tamerie, those are just gorgeous! I do believe I could be quite happy in the first one, the smaller one, with the Palm trees swaying outside my front door... oooh, I want to move there! xoxo Julie Marie

The first house -
Can you just imagine the romance possible on those stairs?! A first kiss, a first summer love, a peaceful holiday. It reminds me of the setting of a fantastic romantic movie...love it!
