Dream, Discover, Explore EAGLE ISLAND
Dream, Discover, Explore YOUR Private Island
(December 2009) EAGLE ISLAND is far “from reality – near perfection”. It is one of America’s most secluded private islands on the Atlantic coast. A 10-minute boat ride from Darien, Georgia (a small fishing town 60 miles south of Savannah), Eagle Lodge is an extraordinary vacation hideaway for nature lovers, sportsmen, girls’ escapes, honeymooners and families. Completely outfitted with luxurious amenities, the Lodge comes with an uninhabited 10-acre private island, which offers all the wilderness and mystique one could expect of a Southern coastal island.
Eagle Lodge sits alone – surrounded by wildlife and plants in their natural environment, offering peace, quiet and complete seclusion if vacationers want it. Thousands of acres of Georgia coastal marsh separate the island off from the rest of the world, although the wild beaches of Sapelo Island are only a short boat ride away and the Darien docks are nearby if dining at a restaurant is the day’s plan. The full kitchen is alluring since guests bring food, beverages and an enthusiasm for preparing freshly caught crab and fish from the island’s private dock.
Sleeping arrangements accommodate up to 8 writers, 2 bathrooms, hot tub, fireplaces, outdoor summer kitchen, luxury Lodge kitchen and 1,500 sq. ft. of screened porch – satellite TV and wireless internet IF YOU MUST STAY IN TOUCH with the ‘real world’. Here you can explore the dazzling and miraculous Georgia salt marsh eco system on a kayak, take coastal cruises or watch a full moon rising. Eagle Island is only accessible via boat; owner Andy Hill provides round-trip transportation with each visit. Here the world is truly ‘your oyster’!
Eagle Island is a “5-Moon Getaway” – No agenda, No clock, No deadlines, Yes fun ~ Privacy is our Priority. The Nature Conservancy named this region of the Georgia Coast one of ’75 Last GREAT PLACES Left in the World’. www.PrivateIslandsofGeorgia.com
