Tybee Island Retreat 2001

Overview

After an exhausting drive it was dark when we arrived on Tybee Island. We awoke to the most beautiful sight, the beach, huge gazebo, and pier that stretches along way into the ocean. It was breathtaking and much more than I had expected.Our second night there was a wedding on the beach, complete with tiki lights lining the brides pathway. This was a very pleasant surpise and a joyous occasion for all.The resort had bicycles for its guests and we made use of them three of our days there. We rode almost every inch of this wonderful island.The Lighthouse was one of the bike trips we made, along with the local artists that have a small shopping village were they make and sell their goods....Read More

I called and made a reservation for lunch at 11:30. We arrived and were escorted in and seated at a table by the front window. Those without reservations were standing in line outside, watching us enjoy the most wonderful meal.

The food was served buffet style and it was all home cooked fresh meats and vegetables. My favorite was the hoecakes (a bread) served with a special house syrup and butter. We were also served a choice of desserts with our meal. Ms. Paula Deen, the owner, also sells her cookbooks and they are a must-have. I own two of them and the recipes are the best. If you visit Savannah you have to eat at The Lady and Sons!!
