This home is very close to the beach and on a quiet street. We enjoyed our weekend there. The bed was comfy and the room had lots of light and a private feel.

Delightful stay

Staying at the Lighthouse Inn was a relaxing experience; like staying with family. We look forward to our next visit to the island.

Very charming island B&B just a short walk from wonderful ocean beach and lighthouse

Susie made sure that our stay was a perfect, relaxing three-day getaway. Room and (house) were immaculately clean and charming. Breakfasts were very good. Just a short walk from lighthouse and wonderful Atlantic Ocean beach, and 20-min. drive to downtown Savannah. Tybee Island has a couple of must-visit restaurants: AJs Dockside (great seafood and pub food), and Sunrise Restaurant (great breakfast place). We hope to stay there again soon.

The Lighthouse B&B at Tybee

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.
