The Oyster House has everything you’ll need to escape in Coastal Georgia. This quintessential fishing cabin is situated in Salt Crest on Colonels Island, about 35 minutes from Savannah or Brunswick. The home features three well appointed bedrooms that sleep 8 guests, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and plenty of living space. This cottage is draped in live oaks and provides amazing views from its porches, patios and docks. Indoors entertainment is also available! You can enjoy our high speed internet, watch television, or spend your evening playing pool.
The Oyster House features plenty of outdoor entertainment areas. You are welcome to enjoy our outdoor pavilion and cooking area that comes with fish cleaning station, gas grill, and bar (with ceiling fans under the tin roof). Or, you can relax by the large firepit surrounded by comfortable rocking chairs. The base of the private dock provides more seating options- a great place to load in for a day of fishing as well.
The Oyster House has a large private dock that can accommodate 2 boats, including most inshore bay boats and smaller offshore boats. The cabin is also very close to the Half Moon Marina, where they lift your boat for you in and out of water for a fee. You can get ice, bait, and gas, and keep boats larger than 23 feet for a nightly fee.
This Salt Crest waterfront cottage offers the gateway to the best kept secret on the East Coast – the unspoiled Georgia Barrier Islands. These protected islands and waterways offer pristine beaches and a reef ecosystem that attracts incredible fishing. With low pressure, catches of redfish, sea trout, flounder, drum and sheepshead are common and can be targeted year round. In the warmer months, tarpon and tripletail also frequent the area. Offshore fishing is also exceptional and just a 12 mile run to either St. Catherines or Sapelo Sound. Nearshore catches include Spanish and King Mackerel, Black Seabass, and Red Drum. A little further off and species like Snapper, Grouper and Triggerfish can be targeted. We can also arrange for a charter boat for a day of offshore fishing and a leisure trip exploring the undisturbed beaches and wildlife of the islands.
These same pristine waters also provide excellent wildlife viewing and the cottage is just a short boat ride from some of the best secluded beaches on the coast. These include Sapelo Island, Cabretta Island & Blackbeard Island. The cottage is also adjacent from Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge, which provides excellent year round birding and wildlife viewing.
For hunting enthusiasts, Salt Crest is near Dorchester Shooting Preserve, where you can seasonally arrange quail and other hunts, or enjoy shooting sporting clays year-round.
