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.

Light House Inn

Suzie was a wonderful host. The bed was very comfy and we really enjoyed being so close to the Tybee lighthouse. Breakfast was delicious and a great start before walking on the beach.

Lighthouse B and B

Our stay at the Lighthouse was fantastic. Our host Susie was very gracious and accommodating. Tammie who cooked and cleaned was a font of information and her meals wear a culinary delight. Thank you guys....

Don't tell anyone about our place...

I really have mixed feelings about telling people about the Lighthouse Inn. What if it gets so popular that we can't get back in? But what a lovely place. It's a short walk to the beach by the big lighthouse and convenient to the spectacular North Beach Bar and Grill. But more than that, it's just an oasis of calm. Our room was beautiful and surrounded by trees outside. Sitting on the porches and letting the time go by was a pleasure. Susie, our host was warm and charming. Tammy, who cooked our lavish breakfasts, was a reliable source of information about where to go and what to eat. It was, in short, everything I hope for when I book a bed and breakfast. I'll look forward to the next time I drive up to see those lights on the pergola in the yard.

Birthday Weekend Getaway

5 on April 18, 2014

We had a terrific time staying at the Lighthouse Inn B&B last weekend. Breakfast was awesome each morning, and Tammie went above and beyond to help me surprise my boyfriend with a birthday cake upon arrival as we came in via motorcycle. The Tybee Wine Festival was the same weekend and we were able to join in on a few extra activities. Thanks for the wonderful memories and great conversation! We look forward to seeing you again in the future! P & T

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

5 on April 10, 2014

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.
