Looking to explore Coastal Georgia? Need a quiet place to unplug, relax, and recharge? This rustic cabin offers luxury and ammenites and is perfect for a romantic getaway, family reconnect trip, or weekend girls/guys vacation. It is located on 9 scenic acres that offers trees with hooting owls nestled in them, a tall bluff that meanders down to a long boardwalk that takes you through a cypress forest that ends at the Satilla River. At the river you can launch a kayack, drop a fishing line, or just sit back and watch nature or read a book. This cabin is off a 2.5 mile dirt road and 15 minutes to the closest restaurant and grocery story so expect to find peace and quiet and relaxation here. It is easy access with any vehicle despite the dirt road (which is county maintained regularly) and centrally located to Jekyll Island, Cumberland Island, Jacksonville, Brunswick and the Golden Isles. This cabin offers modern conveniences like DISH TV, a DVD player, and WIFI. It has been stocked full with movies, books, and games to help your family reconnect and relax. The cabin offers a spacious bedroom with queen bed, a private bathroom with custom slate floor and walk in shower. There is a fully stocked kitchen and a spacious living room that has a queen size futon. There is two windows seats perfect for cozying up to a good book. There is a private outdoor area behind the cabin with a firepit and outdoor seating and a grill. There is also a shared outdoor space consisting of a covered pavillion with picnic table, an additional grill, and an additional firepit with more seating.

The boardwalk to the river is also a shared space. This cabin is shared with one other home on the property. The owners/managers also reside there and understand your need for privacy so they can be as hands on or hands off as you prefer. And having someone on the same property the owners can take care of any issues quickly should they arise during your stay. 

There is plenty of room for parking as we have a circular driveway and two large parking areas. Should you chose to bring a boat there is a boat launch about 15 minutes away. We have pets and yours are welcome as well with advanced approval and pet fee.

Stars Aligned River Retreat is a spectacular place to stay. George and Michelle have thought of everything and provide an incredible experience for people from an array of interests. Their property is gorgeous and the surrounding preserve is full of wildlife, trails to explore, and river to boat and fish. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen, and beautiful bathroom. The hosts were nice enough to provide us with a tour of the preserve and a fire at night - keep them informed of your preferences and they will be sure to accommodate. We highly recommend this spot.

My girlfriend and I had an excellent stay at Stars Aligned River Retreat. The cabin was large, comfortable, and included every possible amenity. The property is also large and private, and is adjacent to a wildlife preserve which the hosts, George and Shelby, help to manage. On our first night, George gave us an ATV tour of the preserve, explaining aspects of the ecology including the old-growth cypress trees. The property has direct access to to the Satilla River, including a private beach which had just about the finest, whitest beach sand I've come across. I needed to make some repairs on the inflatable SUP I had brought along, and George was kind enough to lend me the tools necessary to make the repairs. George and Shelby offered to drop us off upriver for a 2-hour kayak tour, but we elected to just head down to their private beach where I paddled around for hours, chasing swallowtail butterflies, while Carly lounged on the beach. Our stay at Stars Aligned Retreat was one of the best I've experienced and I highly recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I really enjoyed the Stars Aligned River Retreat! We highly recommend the eco-tour! George and Shelby are very nice, and responsive when we had questions. We used this location as our basecamp to visit Jekyll Island and Cumberland Island, and it was easy to get in and out of the area. The dirt road is a little intimidating, but even our Camry had no problems with it. The space is quiet and peaceful. Now, I want to go paddle-camp the Satilla River paddle trail!

You can see how far away the cabin is from the house here. So quiet here!The dirt road on the way in / out of the place. It's well packed, and our camry was ok even after rain.more cypressesGeorge unlocking the gate for the eco tour of the preserve!

We had a wonderful stay at the Stars Aligned River Retreat. George and Shelby were wonderful hosts. Communication was easy and clear. They gave us our space, but were more than happy to assist with any questions. George also took us on a quick tour of the nature preserve that surrounds their property and set us up for a relaxing kayak trip down the beautiful Satilla River.

As for the kayak trip, I'd highly recommend! George showed us where we'd be getting out of the river so we'd be sure not to miss it. We coordinated on a meeting time that allowed us time to check out a pretty beach south of their property.

The setting was beautiful. We enjoyed talking the boardwalk to the river and hiking to what felt like a private beach. We set up a hammock and didn't see another soul for hours.

The cabin itself was great, complete with a comfy bed, cozy reading nooks overlooking the trees, and cute, outdoorsy decor. The kitchen had everything you'd need to cook--pots, pans, cutting board, knives. They also had a bit of cooking oil and little creamers for coffee. We didn't double check whether they would have charcoal for the grill, but they did, and we were able to use the propane grill when we got a later start on dinner than expected.

It was a great experience that we'd highly recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay here. Clean and cozy. Hosts were helpful, welcoming, and gave us plenty of privacy for the quiet down-time we were looking for. Would love to come back with more time to get out and explore the coastal islands.

We LOVED staying here! This is a beautiful property. We were too exhausted from the last few days of our trip to go, but the owner offered to take us down the river in kayaks. The cabin itself is so charming. We loved walking down to the river. Highly recommend this stay.
