Welcome to the charming Screened Inn on beautiful Tybee Island just off the coast of Savannah Georgia. I had the privilege of attending a little blogger retreat last week, organized and hosted by Rhoda of Southern Hospitality, Diane of Mermaid Cottages, and Kathy aka the author Mary Kay Andrews. There were about 20 of us and we all stayed in several of the Mermaid Cottages. Brittany from Pretty Handy Girl, Holly from Storywood Designs and I all stayed in Screened Inn. Open the gate and let’s take a tour! Screened Inn cottage used to be a mess hall for the officers of Fort Screven back in the 1920’s. It is now divided into a duplex hosting two cottages.
The screened porch is long and expansive, full of rocking chairs and couches where you can sip some sweet tea and enjoy the ocean breeze. Our weather was rather nippy but I can just imagine how nice this porch would be in warmer months.
If you remember, I recently posted about Coastal Door Knockers and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by this bronze fish door knocker!
The Screened Inn received a decorative makeover a few years ago by Kevin and Layla from the Lettered Cottage. So let’s enter the master bedroom, cleverly titled the Lettered Love room!
And across from the bed is the Lettered Wall which displays a lovely quote about an island. This wall quote vinyl decal was created and installed by my friend Leen the Graphics Queen.
Each of the rooms have their own unique title and this bedroom directly off the kitchen is the Sand & Sea room. This room was adorable! One bed was labeled sand and the other was sea, but I was tempted to change it to SISAL! 😉
How fun is this idea? Starfish are strung and hung from the ceiling above a shelf which runs the entire length of the room. The cottage also is filled with vintage finds and artwork.
But besides the coastal decor of this quaint cottage, it was the people inside it that left you feeling relaxed …. and those were my wonderful and fun roommates, Brittany and Holly! (Pictured Left-Right: Me, Holly, Brittany, & Rhoda)
Hope you enjoyed the Screened Inn Cottage tour!
