My wife and I just got married and spent our honeymoon in GA and part of the time in Tybee Island. The Lighthouse Inn was beyond amazing!! They were accommodating, friendly, and went above and beyond for us! John and Rosie were tending the house when we stayed and we absolutely adore them! Rosie even made us cupcakes for our honeymoon!! If I could rate this bed and breakfast I would give it a 20/10!! They have a beautiful pool and you are right by the beach! The best travel experience for us yet! We will definitely be coming back!! I highly highly highly recommend staying here!!

Great place.

The house is beautiful. Our host was very welcoming and made us feel at home. Breakfast was very good. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cozy place to stay.

You wont be disappointed!

We wanted a vacation rental or B&B room that was located on Tybee Island near the beach and convenient to local restaurants. Further, we had some kayaks with us and needed a place that could accommodate storing them. We contacted the Innkeeper, Liza, who responded immediately that they would help us with the kayaks and answered all of our questions. The Inn is just awesome. It's a historical home within a short walk to the beach. The Inn is charming and the Innkeepers are wonderful people. They made us feel right at home and were so warm and friendly. They helped us with the kayaks and were right there for us anytime we had a question. They gave us wonderful recommendations on local eateries and areas to kayak. The beach is a very short walk and is REALLY nice. There are wooden swings to sit in and the beach was not crowded. There is a bar and grill adjacent to the beach, as well as a historical lighthouse with daily tours. Again, all of this is within a short, 5 minute walk to the Inn. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the morning breakfasts were delicious. Liza an amazing cook. You wont get a boring continental breakfast. You'll definitely enjoy the meals! Not only would we come back to the Lighthouse Inn for the island visit, but we'd come back because of the owners. They are warm, friendly people who will make you feel right at home. Love this place!

Fantastic Getaway

The room and bed were very comfortable. The innkeepers were extremely nice and accommodating! The breakfast provided each morning was amazing and plentiful! Walking distance to the beach and they have chairs and umbrellas you can borrow for the beach. They also have bikes you can use to ride around the island on. Great stay!!

Want to return and stay longer

Our stay was way too short. Tybee Island is a 5 hour drive for us and this was planned as a long weekend trip. This B&B is a gem and the owners are wonderful. We stayed in the "Blue Room". Liza prepared a great breakfast each morning to get us fueled up for whatever we had planned. Situated right at the North Beach, it is an easy bike ride or short walk to the beach, dining or historical attractions like the Tybee Island Light Station and Museum or Fort Screven. The owners have recently added a pool, however we did not have the time available to enjoy it. The other guests seemed to really like the addition and one couple had stayed there multiple times. We plan to become one those couples.

Great solo getaway!

The Lighthouse Inn was a perfect spot for a solo getaway. It was a splurge for me, but worth every penny. Liza and Tony were friendly and gracious hosts, always making sure I had what I needed while providing delicious food, great coffee, and fun conversation. There were bikes and beach chairs/carts/umbrellas available for guests to use, and the free parking was a major plus. The walk to North Beach was a quick 5 minutes, and everything else on Tybee was an easy bike ride away. I enjoyed the pool and the big front porch (complete with great ceiling fans). My room was clean, neat, and comfortable. The rest of the house, including the breakfast room, was beautiful! I didn't use my TV, but the wifi worked well, and so did the A/C. Would love to go back!

Beautiful B&B

An absolutely beautiful B&B with the most amazing couple who own it! Liza and Tony care about their guests and do everything to make your stay special. So friendly and down to earth you feel like you are family. Love the experience of meeting other couples at breakfast without feeling awkward among a big crowd. Very charming and quaint....short walking distance from beach. Just perfect!

A Great Weekend Getaway

We traveled with friends to Tybee Island and had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse Inn Bed & Breakfast. It is conveniently located to a great beach, the lighthouse and museum. We walked everywhere and did not use the car until it was time to leave. The house is beautiful and the porch, patio and pool are beyond relaxing. Our hosts, Liza and Tony were delightful and we look forward to returning again soon!

New Owners Same Outstanding Stay

We booked the Inn for our 10 year Anniversary and hadn't stayed there since before we were married. Found out that it had a new owner in the last year and was pleasantly surprised that the stay was as good if not better than we remembered. The addition of a pool was a nice touch. My wife and I highly recommend staying here.

Great Tybee Island B&B Get-a-wayt

5 on April 05, 2018

We had a fabulous stay at this great B&B in an old historic home on Tybee. It was very near the 3rd oldest Lighthouse in the country, dates to pre-revoluntionary war! That had a great museum as well as one in the Battery. The owners Liza and Tony were very helpful with suggestions of events and restaurants. They asked if we had suggestions as their inn keeping experience is new. We highly recommend this great B&B, and, Liza's breakfasts were outstanding! - David & Linda...
