Tybee Island Inn

24 Van Horne Avenue , Tybee Island, GA 31328 USA (Show map)


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.

Lovely stay at Tybee

My husband and I were only there for one night, however it was a beautiful and relaxing evening. We had the "Cabin Room" which is beautifully appointed and in a fun nautical theme. Breakfast in the morning was extremely filling, they also went out of their way to prepare a special breakfast for my husbands dietary needs. Cannot wait to come again!

Peace and quiet

We enjoyed the early morning coffee on the porch over looking the garden. The sunrise was beautiful. The location of the B&B was ideal. Close to town, lighthouse and beaches. The owner went out of her way to made it possible to park in back to avoid the stairs.

Awesome place to go,I will tell everyone!!

Our stay

We enjoyed our time at the inn. The room was spacious and clean. The copper bathtub was amazing! The owner brought our breakfast to our room each day and she was very helpful when we were looking for things yo do in Savannah (what trolley company to use, where to park, etc). The inn is a short walk to the beach and chairs and umbrellas were provided by the inn which was a money saver. We stayed in the Captains Quarters. I loved having our own private entrance. The downside was you could hear people walking around and talking above us. The only other negative we had was that the toilet backed up and flooded the restroom shortly after we arrived. It took two hours to clean everything up which meant we had to leave the room. They did apologize, but never offered to compensate us for the disruption. Overall, the a Tybee Island a Inn is a very nice place to stay and I would recommend to others.

Best place to stay on Tybee

Lee the owner will make sure you are spoiled for your entire visit at Tybee! She has thought of every little detail from the beautiful house to beach bags if you need them to the afternoon snack. We had our wedding ceremony with Lee and her team and words cannot even begin to touch how beautiful the setting is here! Highly recommend for anything from a weekend stay to a wedding. We loved this place so much and will be back for years to come!!

My fiancé and I had our eyes on this place for about three years before we finally booked and decided to have our wedding on April 1st 2016 of 20 there. Let me just say that this place is more beautiful in person then the pictures! It was breathtaking how clean the room was we styed in. (Which was the captains quarter's) in case you're curious. I myself am a germ freak and will get grossed out at my feet touching the shower, if its not mine, with that being said the room was so clean I took a bath in the copper soaking tub twice!! It was so clean and so fabulous that I wish I had a copper tub as I learned that it holds in the heat of the water.Talk about relaxing!! Other wonderful details about Tybee Island Inn is the wonderful staff that took care of our needs, Ilona, Lee and Gordon were friendly, kind and took the time to make our wedding nice and enjoyable. For the price it's extremely worth it! We also stayed at the Inn for two days and two nights. We never heard a peep as our room was so quiet, I love that room! And the breakfast that everyone raves about in the reviews is as delicious as they say it is! The grounds are so well kept and clean and we enjoyed the plants and flowers all around. The wedding pictures turned out very nice and was well worth it! The wedding cake and food was perfect and tasted good was hot and fresh. The overall experience was darn near perfect lol! Even the rain held on until our reception was done which we had in the garden area of the Inn along with our actual wedding ceremony. If you want a nice, cozy, relaxing wedding and honey moon with all the little extras I highly, highly recommend this Inn!

Beyond Perfect!!!

My fiancé and I booked the entire Inn for the weekend, we stayed with our closest friends and family. We were married at the Inn, everything was beyond perfect. The price was reasonable and they offered a payment plan. The Inn keeper and wedding coordinator handled every little detail, leaving me time to enjoy and relax. They were even prepared when our wedding day turned rainy. Breakfast was served on time and was hot and delicious. They also handled our reception lunch, cake, flowers, decorations, and photography, all beyond perfect. We plan to return as soon as possible!!!! Thank you so much Tybee Island Inn for everything, words cannot express our gratitude!
