The Lodge

Annual recipient of the prestigious Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awards since 2001, The Lodge is a premier hideaway for those seeking privacy and classic luxury. It is also, most assuredly, a golfer's paradise.

The Lodge is distinctive. In both its architectural style and its setting, the Lodge is reminiscent of an English country manor. Set majestically on St. Simons Island, The Lodge and its 40 guest rooms are secluded, inviting, and grand. Approached through an enchanting tunnel of antebellum oaks, The Lodge offers expansive ocean views, and is surrounded by the emerald fairways of The Sea Island Golf Club. These include Plantation and Seaside – two 18-hole championship courses. Sea Island's superb Golf Performance Center is adjacent to The Lodge, while the 18-hole Retreat Course is nearby.

At The Lodge, experience world-class golf, invigorating activities, and 24-hour butler service. Southern hospitality at The Lodge is peerless. Enjoy world-class dining at Colt & Alison and The Oak Room. From the privacy of your room or suite, enjoy unobstructed views with morning coffee.

While at The Lodge be sure to enjoy a cocktail on the veranda while listening to the sounds of our bagpiper every evening at sunset. You can also try your hand – and your lungs – at this centuries-old tradition, with our bagpiper lessons. With your own practice chanter, you’ll learn from one of the
Sea Island bagpipers.
