Featuring a towering fireplace and outdoor television, this area creates the perfect space to kick back and relax while enjoying the custom detail of the exotic pecky cypress wood ceiling from one of the two sofas.

As you exit the Lanai, you step down into your private pool area which is perfect for all members of your party. The pool features an 8" deep entry area with an in pool umbrella offering a wonderful place to lounge or for the little ones to play. The opposite side of the pool will relax all who indulge as you sit on the 6 foot in-water bench under the waterfall.

The pool can be heated upon request for an additional $45 / night for year round enjoyment!

Perfect weekend!
Stayed here for a friends weekend and everything was great! The kitchen/dining/living area was perfect for group gathering and hanging. The pool and outdoor porch were a private oasis while being in the middle of a charming neighborhood a block from the beach. Garage stocked with pool toys, umbrellas and beach chairs for use. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and each room has its own bathroom. The house is as nice as the pictures look, which isn’t always the case with rentals. Everything was smooth and I would definitely return to this property!

Myself, my 3 children and their spouses plus 7 grandkids checked into Wading Inn and were thrilled.
We had a fabulous time during our stay. We hated to leave. We hung out around the pool, enjoyed coffee in the mornings in the screened in porch, played cards at the dining table in the evening and walked the beach at night to view the stars over the ocean. The consensus was, it was “ the best vacation ever “. What a gorgeous home!!

Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review, Jane! So wonderful that you all were able to be together in St. Simons! Were so glad you enjoyed your time at Wading Inn - and the awesome pool! We hope to see you all again soon for another "best vacation ever"!

Wedding Week!
The Enchanted Cottage was our home base for our son's wedding week. His in laws own a home down the street so the proximity worked nicely. We never used the house to the full capacity but it was so nice to have all of the space. The house was very clean and had everything necessary to cook. Also enjoyed having plenty of parking. We'll definitely return!

Manager Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review, Sharen! We are so glad you enjoyed Wading Inn for your son's wedding week. How nice that his in laws were just down the street! Hope the wedding was wonderful and we hope to see you again soon!

Fantastic Property That Exceeded Expectations
Would highly recommend staying here and am planning on making a return trip next year for certain. The house is spacious enough for everyone to spread out and was immaculate in terms of cleanliness and decor. Getting to watch some college football on the screened in porch was absolutely perfect and communications with property management was easy.


Thank you for the enthusiastic review, Matthew! We appreciate your comments about the many amenities you enjoyed at Enchanted Cottage. We'll look forward to seeing you again next year!

Beautiful property, clean, well maintained, equipped with every convenience and superbly stocked kitchen with professional grade appliances. Pool was great. Top of the line Weber grill.

Spring Break
Of the probably 30-40 vacation homes and condos we've enjoyed over the years, this was probably the nicest we've had. It was extremely clean and equally well stocked. Evertything about the home was well thought out. If I had to include a suggestion, it would be to replace the two queen beds with king beds. Although that would make the two quee ben rooms feel smaller, it would be an improvement.  

Manager Response: Thank you for your review. We are so happy to hear that the Enchanted Cottage is one of the nicest places you've stayed at over the years. I have taken in notes about your suggestions and will definitely send that through. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to the next time. 
Thank you!

Splendid home, great location, beautifully decorated, minutes from the beach. We really appreciated that the home owners literally give you everything you need to enjoy your stay; all the towels and linens and especially kitchenware's.

Perfect beach house
Our family had a great time. It was a perfect house for all of us. The kids enjoyed swimming at the pool, they read books at the nook upstairs. It was plenty of room for everyone. The house is pristine and everyone said they can’t wait to be back here in St Simons and stay at the same house. The welcome basket was such a nice gesture. We love everything about the house. Beth was very helpful and informed us all there is about the rental property.

Beautiful Home with All of the Amenities!
We came down to SSI for an Attorney conference and had a lovely stay at this cottage! It's large without feeling overwhelmed but spread out enough so each room feels private. The decor is fantastic and the property managers left a lovely welcome basket for us to enjoy. We had a great time and would absolutely rent this property again in the future. Thank you for having us!

Spectacular on St. Simons
This beautiful rental home was nothing short of perfect in every way! First of all, cudos to Adam and Beth- the property managers. Very nice and so great to work with. We had no problems with the rental at all. This is a new, immaculate, well thought out house in a quiet and upscale neighborhood which was great for running, strolling and biking in dappled sun and shade. The beach is a close walk away, works for even young children and is un-crowded and expansive. The pool, which we paid extra to have heated ( this was well worth it for April) had plenty of sun and also some shade for the babies. The step down shallow section was amazing. The house itself had every imaginable convenience and the cooks kitchen was beyond anything we have ever rented! TVs galore, expansive bathrooms, comfortable beds, better than staying at The Cloisters! All in all a wonderful and memorable week for our family.
