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.

Outstanding anniversary stay

5 on September 02, 2017

Last year my husband and I came for our honeymoon. So this year when we found out my brother was graduating basic training for the army, not too far away we decided to come back . Both times we stayed it was wonderful. Always clean and very polite people. It was nice to be able to walk to the beach and restaurants and then to come back and be able to relax. Highly recommend this place to anyone!

We booked this on a whim as a special treat. We fell in love with the garden and veranda online and we're not disappointed! It was beautiful. The inside was just as nice And breakfast was to die for! We will definitely recommend this for friends and family visiting Tybee Island

Great stay, the food was incredible!

Lee is a wonderful hostess/innkeeper. She welcomed us, gave us a tour, etc. She had a nice balance of being present/informative and giving guests their privacy. The front gardens were very beautiful-perfect for morning coffee after sunrise in summer. The breakfast was wonderful; they changed it up each day and remembered special requests. The bathroom was very spacious and had amazing upgrades with tubs. The bed was very comfortable to sleep on. The building is kept very well and is well over 100 years old. Our vanity sink wasn't draining well but we let Lee know. We are confident that it was taken care of immediately. The inn is centrally located on the island, and we had no troubles parking and getting around. The more active part of the island is only a mile or two away. There were several great restaurants near inn and at lighthouse. Thank you to Lee & staff for an awesome weekend!!!!

Relaxing a great place to unwind and get away

Lee is the best! Inn is a block from the beach and She has chairs ready for you. Felt very welcome and rooms were very clean. Amazing breakfasts and even better red velvet cake. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying on Tybee.

My son and I really enjoyed our stay at the Tybee Island Inn! The Inn is very clean and decorated beautifully. We loved the Inns location, it was just a short bike ride to the beach and lighthouse! We also really enjoyed the breakfast! We are looking forward to visiting the Inn again soon!
