Stay Better Vacations welcomes you to slow down and enjoy the little things at 1879 Mush Bluff Rd. in St. Marys, GA.  This lovely riverfront home, know as Sabina's Cottage, is situated directly on Crooked River and encourages our guests to connect with nature and reconnect with loved ones. Start your days by capturing the sunrise over the river as each are unique and spectacular!  Osprey, otters, dolphin, turtles, and the occasional manatee are just some of the wildlife you might expect to see. 

This charming 2 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage is located directly on Crooked River next to Crooked River State Park in St. Marys, GA. Sabina's Cottage was completely renovated in 2019 and is the perfect spot for a relaxing retreat.  Enjoy a good book in the light filled Sunroom or, rock your afternoon away on the screened-in porch.  Gather on the back deck to cook dinner on the gas grill or dine al fresco.  Spend time in the backyard around the fire pit making memories with friends and family.  No matter which space you choose, you'll be surrounded by nature and the beauty of the river.  Be sure to check in on the Osprey nest located at the river as they may be nesting or feeding.  The more adventurous will find bicycles to explore with, and an outdoor shower with hot water! There is something for everyone.

With a riverfront location, this makes a great spot for a fisherman's home base.  From the outdoor covered and lighted cleaning station, to a circular driveway with parking and plenty of room for a 25’ boat plus a crew cab truck!  Back your boat in next to the water hose for easy cleaning and flushing of your rig.  The public boat ramp is conveniently located less than 300 yards away for easy river access.  Convenient to the Cumberland Sound, Brickhill River, North and South Jetties, Christmas Creek and the Intercostal waterway, fishermen can try their luck for speckled trout, channel bass, sheepshead, drum, and striped bass. The less ambitious can fish, crab, or shrimp from the dock at Crooked River State Park. Need bait? Visit Crooked River State Park's North Star Bait & Tackle Shop. You will find everything you need for a perfect fishing getaway.

As you enter the screened porch from the covered carport, you will find a swing, rocking chair, and dining area for relaxing or cooking your catch of the day with the provided electric frying pan and utensils.  Once inside, you will find a fully stocked kitchen with all the necessary cookware for your stay. A coffee station will get your morning off to a good start.

Dine in at the dining table for four or go through the French doors for al fresco dining on the deck overlooking the river.  From the deck, you can walk down to the fire pit where you can roast oysters and smores or sit around the fire to watch for dolphins that can often be seen going out with the evening tide.

When it's time to go back inside, the electric fireplace will give a cozy feel to this intimate space. The 65" TV is perfect for watching your favorite shows or movies.  The spacious Sunroom, adjacent to the living room, is a great spot for reading or gathering with family and friends.  The Sunroom's pot belly stove will keep this space toasty on cool winter nights.

Both bedrooms make relaxing easy with king beds, TV's and blackout curtains.  Closets and drawers located under the bed provide plenty of storage.  The spacious bathroom with large walk in shower has a dispenser for shampoo/conditioner/body wash which means you have less to pack.

This home is located next to Crooked River State Park where you can enjoy maritime forest and the Intercoastal Waterway while surrounded by palmettos and Spanish moss-draped oaks.  Nearby activities include: Biking, Birding, Boating, Fishing, Geocaching, Hiking, Kayaking and Paddle boarding. The cottage is just a 20 minute drive from Historic Downtown St. Marys- the Gateway to Cumberland Island and the Georgia Coast.  Along with many historical buildings, Downtown St. Marys has several shops and restaurants to explore.  If you've made reservations for Cumberland Island, you'll load onto the ferry at the dock next to the Cumberland Island National Seashore Visitor's Center.  

You'll have a 'better' stay with Stay Better Vacations!
