Our guests have graciously ratest us 4.5 to 5 stars on tripadvisor for Tybee Island, a short 18-20 minute drive from Historic Savannah. Tybee was named the healthiest beach by Health Magazine, the Top 10 City Beach in the USA by AOL and the best one tank trip by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. And, Tybee was the backdrop for the movie, "The Last Song" starring Miley Cyrus. and recently several episodes of Sponge Bob, Square Pants was shot here. Historic Tybee Island Inn, circa 1902, captures the beach casual essence of Tybee with style. Framed with magnificent live oaks and palms, enjoy the sea breeze from our large front or back porches or relax in our tropical gardens. Spend the day on the quietest beach access on the Island. Or, explore the Island's history and visit Fort Pulaski, home of a major Civil War battle in April 1862; the Tybee Lighthouse, recognized as the oldest and tallest in Georgia and the cannon embankments (gun batteries) and museum of Fort Screven.

Stayed at this truly romantic historic house and want to return soon!

What an absolutely neat place. As soon as we drove up we knew this was the best bed and breakfast around. The front yard and porch area were spectacular. We were later told that people booked the place for weddings because it is just so picturesque. Now the first thing that you want in a bed-and-breakfast of course is a good bed. And this was amongst the most comfy bed I've slept in quite a while. Then the second thing you want is a great breakfast. And let me tell you, the two breakfasts we had were delicious. Stuffed French toast one day and a eggs Benedict the next. And afternoon snacks were not some stale cookies. Pecan pie on one day followed by an absolutely scrumptious homemade peach cobbler. Folks this is the place to go. The hostess was just absolutely wonderful. Gave us all sorts of ideas and tips. I could go on, but I think you get the picture!

A pleasant surprise!

We stayed at the Tybee Island Inn, first time at a B & B. We couldn't have been more happy at our decision to book this place. It lived up to the comfort of the the inn as well as the delicious breakfast made by their awesome chef! We will be visiting again when going back to the island! We loved it!

Stayed at Inn for 2 nights. We had a Groupon so the value was great. The courtyard was simply beautiful. We spent our nights out there with some wine. And the breakfasts were delicious. Everything was great and the Inn keeper was so helpful, but the rooms were a little outdated. And not in that charming inn sort of way.

Best Trip Ever!

This is my first review every writing so bare with me. My husband and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary and I decided to surprise him with a trip to Tybee. Neither of us had ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and I have to admit I was little nervous. Once we arrived thou all my fears went away.The front of the house is absolutely beautful and the inside is just as nice. A lady(her name has slipped my mind) greeted us at the door and showed us around. She was super nice and never minded us asking any questions. She also suggested things and places to go that we would of never know about if it wasnt for her. (like we could have bikes dropped off & picked up right at the front door for just $10 a bike) We stayed in the Sea Cabin which was right near the front door and also by the kitchen so we could just walk out and grab a snack anytime we wanted or put our drinks in the refrigerator next to our door. The Sea Cabin was perfect for the 2 of us. It was a cozy but spacious room where the bed and the bathroom were on opposite sides. The rooms were cleaned everyday just as if you was in a hotel and her staff was very friendly. Breakfast was served every morning around 9 am and I didnt eat one thing that I didnt love. I even asked from a receipe or two. My husband had also never ate a pomegranate and asked what is was and she brought out a whole piece for him because he liked it so much. It's personal little touches like that, that leave an impression on you. Our stay was perfect and it seemed like they had thought of everything to make our stay was peaceful and enjoyable as possible(inlcuding beach bags that included towels and sun hats with sunscreen to share). We will definitely be back in the future.

Great beach gataway

Pleasantly surprised as this was the first time visiting Tybee Island. The Inn was very quaint and peaceful. Beautiful front yard grounds along with a very comfortfable front porch. The breakfast n both days was outstanding. The room was comfortfable and we would definitely return again. The Innkeeper, Lee, was hospitable and extremely helpful whenever called upon! The Inn is just short walk to the beach and close by other fine eaterys.

This home is unique and loaded with charm! Our room (the captain's quarters) was very clean & comfortable and perfect for four girls on a long weekend trip! The grounds were beautiful for an evening relaxing and enjoying friends. The beach is a short, convenient stroll in a safe area at night, The innkeeper is a most gracious host and very accommodating. Would definitely stay again!

Great location w/ lots of charm - needs more breakfast

2.6 on September 15, 2014

This is a beautiful location with a lot of character and charm. The service was wonderful and friendly with lots of recommendations of things to do in the area. It is within walking distance to the beach which is fantastic. My only issue was the mid-afternoon snacks and breakfast. It was a little sad compared to the other B&Bs I've stayed at in the Savannah area. The snacks were brownies and ice cream and breakfast was one little piece of sausage and french toast. The coffee was like water. They need to up their game with the food and introduce some wine into the mid-day snacks - especially for the cost.
