Eagle Island - Making the Cut in 2010
Eagle Island Making the Cut in 2010
Darien, GA. (May 2010) Capt. Andy Hill’s collection of private islands is being propelled into stardom this year. Eagle Island has been featured this month in The London Times, Southern Living Magazine early 2010, Outdoor Magazine and a cutting edge TV show about kayak fishing on The Fishing Network.
A. Ken Whiting, Producer of www.KayakFishingShow.com is hot on Eagle Island “We knew we wanted to shoot an episode in Georgia. Our TV show isn't just a fishing show... it's an adventure travel show, and so the lodges we stay at play an integral role in the stories we tell. When we asked Georgia's top pro kayak anglers what lodge we should involve, everyone pointed to Andy Hill's Eagle Island the Private Islands of Georgia. The reasons - gorgeous places, fantastic fishing, stunning region. As soon as I visited the website, saw the pictures, and read about Andy's operation, I knew we had found the perfect location”.
B. SOUTHERN LIVING’s ‘People & Places’ featured Eagle Island in their Georgia Living section that answers WHY GO: “A private island. Need we say more? Capt. Andy Hill’s 3,300-square foot lodge on the 10-acre island boasts one of the best outdoor kitchens on the coast; oyster steamer, Low country boil cooker, charcoal and gas smoker grill, blue crab traps and big fire pit. The cypress wood, upscale fish camp, built in 2002, sleeps up to 12. There’s also a hot tub and generous screened porch for being deservedly lazy.”
C. Eagle Island was chosen by Outside Magazine www.outside.com as one of the Top 50 Best Adventure Hideouts in the US. If you prefer your solitude with a mint julep, consider Eagle Island. A 15-minute boat ride speeds guests from Darien, Georgia, to this private ten-acre kingdom topped with a ten-bed reclaimed-cypress lodge. Take the resident kayak for a spin, spy on nesting bald eagles, pluck dinner from the blue-crab traps—or just settle for a julep in the hot tub.
D. The May 1st headline of The London Times reads “20 Affordable Private Islands for Hire”. Hiring an island for an exclusive holiday isn’t just for the super-rich. Here are some good value options for groups. You can have one all to yourself and it doesn’t have to cost a bomb”. Eagle Island was included with 19 other island, including
