Our History

Guests have been visiting Little St. Simons Island to experience its natural beauty, sweeping coastal landscapes, and abundant wildlife since the island opened to the public in 1979. Although the Lodge has won numerous hospitality awards, the number one attraction has always been the Island itself. Conservation organizations, too, have long recognized the importance of the Island’s natural, intact habitats, and healthy populations of rare and threatened wildlife.
In 2015, the owners of Little St. Simons Island donated a conservation easement to The Nature Conservancy on the entire 11,000+ acre Island. This easement ensures that the preservation efforts that have been practiced by the Island’s owners for many years will be permanent.

Our guests and conservationists alike can now rest assured that the natural beauty and the ecological integrity of the Island will forever be protected.
