The Lighthouse B&B at Tybee

4.2 on January 17, 2015

Excellent location in the northern part of Tybee Island, just a couple of hundred feet from the lighthouse, the shore battery museum, and the North Beach Cafe. Very quiet stay between Christmas and New Year's Day

Outstanding Time; Great Stay

Everything about our stay was phenomenal. From the house, to our room, to the breakfasts, to the owner- everything was first class. Ms. Suzy treated us like family. She provided us with details about the island including her wonderful stories. I highly recommend the Lighthouse Inn and we will definitely go back.

We spent three nights there and were very happy with the B&B. Just wish the weather would have been better. Suzy, Glenda and the pups were very friendly and accommodating.

A lovely end to a lovely holiday

The Lighthouse Inn was our stop for the last few nights of a fabulous holiday in Georgia and South Carolina. We had wanted a calm, quiet and relaxing location before heading home and the Lighthouse delivered exactly that. Its landlady, Susie was the model of Southern hospitality; we were made very welcome indeed. The only shame was that we couldn't stay longer. Fully recommended.

Southern Charm and Hospitality

We celebrated our 30th Anniversary at the Lighthouse Inn Bed and Breakfast. This was the most charming place we've ever visited. Walking distance to both the beach and the lighthouse. The house had its own distinct character and charm but the best part of my visit was our delightful host and her wonderful food!!!! I loved hearing her stories. We will definitely be back!!! Oh yes...the wonderful clawfoot tub - so relaxing.

Tybee retreat

3.4 on July 05, 2014

Thanks, Susie, for a great 2 night stay at your B&B! We loved the history of the house and could have spent days on the porch. Just a short walk from the North Beach area so watching the sun come up at 6:00 was very doable. It was a great getaway for our 42nd anniversary!

First B&B experience, very enjoyable.

Our schedule did not allow us to relax as much as we would have liked. This was our first experience at a B&B. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting the other guests and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast.We hope to visit Tybee again soon, allowing enough time to really enjoy the beauty of the area.
