We look forward to welcoming you to the Lodge on Little St. Simons Island for your upcoming stay. In a time when many of us have felt disconnected from the world around us, we invite you to share space with friends and family in the haven of nature. It is our continued commitment to provide exceptional and enriching experiences in both nature and hospitality.

We have been carefully reviewing Covid news, recommendations from the CDC, health professionals’ guidelines, and orders from the State of Georgia. The health of our Island guests and staff is an utmost priority. Taking into consideration the unprecedented speed and ease with which the new Omicron virus is spreading, as well as the latest findings from the CDC, the following procedures are in effect.

  • Effective January 1st, 2022, the following will be required to visit LSSI:
      • All guests over the age 16 who are eligible for the booster shot will be required to provide proof of a booster shot or proof of a negative Covid PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival to the Island.  
      • All guests not yet eligible for the booster, as well as children ages 12-15, will be required to have both Covid vaccinations or proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival to the Island.
  • Fully vaccinated guests and employees will not be required to wear masks either inside or outside, but we caution to not get yourself into a crowded situation.
  • For the continued safety of guests and staff, our housekeeping services will be limited. Our housekeeping team will not enter individual guest rooms after check-in, unless specifically requested.
  • Any guest who is experiencing a temperature which exceeds 100.4° F, or exhibiting any other symptoms of Covid, will be asked to postpone their stay with us. Likewise, if you develop any Covid symptoms during your stay, we ask that you please inform our staff, so we can make arrangements for you to access proper medical care on the mainland.
  • If you have not already, please provide an updated copy of your Covid vaccination card (including booster) or negative Covid PCR test by emailing, referencing your dates of stay in the subject line of your email. You will be unable to board the boat unless we have those records on file prior to your arrival to the marina. 

If you have any questions regarding upcoming reservations, please contact our reservationists at 1-888-733-5774.

Amidst this “new normal”, Little St. Simons Island will continue to provide enriching experiences rooted in nature and adventure. We look forward to welcoming you to the Island where conservation and hospitality meet.
