enjoyed our stay but didn't live up to pictures

3.2 on April 15, 2014

We stayed 5 nights and Tanya made sure we had a different breakfast each day. I would say the breakfast was the highlight of the B and B. Not so much for the food although well presented, but the conversations with other guests and Tanya. She can keep you entertained with her stories! We stayed in the green room...Comfortable but small room. The porch was very different than pictures. We were there early April and there were leaves and such falling from trees. A daily good sweeping of the porch and walkway would have made a much better impression. That is why I rate cleanliness as only 2 stars. The inside was fine. We did enjoy sitting with the other guests on the porch in the evening and early mornings though. We enjoyed out time at the LIghthouse Inn and would recommend it with a warning that the outside does not look like the pictures.

Quiet and Peaceful

When we arrived we knew that it would be raining during our stay. Susie greeted us and assured us that the Weather Channel predictions were for Savannah not Tybee. Boy was she right. We enjoyed sunshine each day despite the gloomy predictions. We followed the advice of the staff and had wonderful dining and memorable adventures. Breakfast was our highlight each day and we loved talking to the other guests during coffee on the porch while smelling what Tammy was cooking each day. The anticipation made the meal that much better. Tho is our new spot and we hope to shake some of the winter snow off of our feathers on Tybee every spring.

Excellent spot on the quiet side of the island

4.4 on April 02, 2014

This is a classic Southern home with a large wrap around porch located in the northern (quiet) part of Tybee. The rooms were beautiful with very comfortable beds. Tammy cooks incredible breakfasts and gave us a bit of history and insight on where to eat. Her recommendations were spot on. The nearby restaurant/bar is excellent and inviting. A quick walk to the Lighthouse and museum led to photo ops galore. For peace and quiet you can't beat Tybee. If you are looking for excitement and adventure, another location is probably better. Will definitely book again.

Lighthouse Inn

2.8 on April 01, 2014

The Inn is in a great location and the room was cozy and pleasant. But, the housekeeping was rather non-existant. (We had to purchase our own toliet tissue because we ran out and couldn't find any in the house and no "staff" was available to ask for more.)

Cozy B&B

3.6 on March 18, 2014

Cozy B&B so close to the beach and historic lighthouse on Tybee Island. Great porch to relax and take in the island greenery. Staff was helpful in sharing local culture, places to see, shop and eat. Quaint and comfortable.
