Riverbend Retreat at Tolomato Island
Congratulations! After all of your searching, you’ve finally found the perfect vacation destination. This beautiful Riverbend Retreat is located on Tolomato Island: a hidden gem on the southern coast of Georgia which comes with history, wildlife, screensaver-worthy sunsets, and much more.
This 3,100 square foot Riverbend Retreat sits on a tidal river overlooking a breathtaking slice of Georgia’s well-known salt marsh. Regardless of high tide or low tide, your boat will sit safely atop deep water at a private dock behind the house. This dock comes fully loaded with a ladder for easy entry in and out of the water and a lighted fish cleaning station. No boat? No problem! Our fishy friends can’t seem to resist a snack, so grab a fishin’ pole and drop a line in right off the dock.
Whether you’re looking for an outdoor adventure or a quiet and sleepy getaway, this Riverbend Retreat is perfect for you! The house is a mile off the main road with paved streets shadowed by Oak trees and Spanish moss, creating the perfect scenery for a walk or a bicycle ride on one of our twelve bikes of all different sizes (provided with no additional cost).
You will quickly find that "elbow room" is no problem as the house is very open and spacious. The main living area is upstairs and consists of the kitchen, dining room, living room, a half-bathroom and the master bedroom. For the culinarian(s) of the group, feel free to work some magic in a kitchen that includes tools needed for cooking, a double oven and a Jenn-Air gas grill: perfect for preparing your catch of the day. The dining room table provides eight seats to comfortably enjoy your edible masterpiece, as well as three more seats at the counter.
After dinner, get cozy in the family room on one of our oversized couches in front of a fireplace and a 55″ flat-screen television or choose from a large selection of board games to play on our game table... the choice is yours!
You’ll find the master bedroom on the other side of the upper floor. Also very spacious, the master bedroom holds a sitting area with two recliners, a fireplace, and a 55″ television. In addition, there is a sleeper sofa, a desk, and a small library of books for the bookworms of the bunch. Conveniently, the laundry room can be accessed through the master closet as well as the living area and holds a roll-away bed if needed.
For the elderly and/or disabled, a motorized chair lift has been installed on the staircase for easier transitioning between levels. A full bathroom connects two large rooms downstairs, with a sink and mirror in each room. One bedroom contains a queen-size bed, a large television, and a roll-away bed in the closet. The other bedroom has two twin beds and a bunk bed with a twin mattress on top and a full mattress on the bottom (this room can sleep up to five people and is ideal for children).
We are happy to answer any questions and look forward to sharing our little slice of paradise with you!
