Blessing of the Fleet Trip
My husband was in Darien around 20 years ago during the time of the Blessing of the Fleet because of a fire in the Blounts Crossing area. Folks were so appreciative and kind to the fire fighters. He was asked to ride along on one of the shrimp boats during the blessing and had a wonderful time. He's wanted to go back many times but there's always been something that prevented us being able to do so. Now that we are both retired, we decided it was time to make it a priority and come down for the festivities. We had a wonderful time attending the arts and crafts show and listening to live music each day and night...once we coated ourselves in bug repellent! Enjoyed a trip to the Old School Diner for a meal prepared by Chef Jerome. When they say everyone is family, they mean it! Also ate at Skippers. Both were absolutely awesome with great food and service. This house is in a beautiful location and was perfect for our trip. We were blessed with a gorgeous sunset our last night. The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked. Rick was attentive and checked to make sure everything was ok. Our only issue was the barking dogs at a neighbor's home. They were never loose or threatening; just barked. Rick contacted the neighbor who planned to put on barking collars when they returned home. So hopefully, the barking dogs won't bother others. We hope to make future trips to the Blessing of the Fleet and will certainly consider staying at this home again. Thank you Rick for looking after us so well!
A great spot
We had a wonderful month long stay at this spot. The house was very comfortable and clean and was everything we hoped for. The little community of Valona was great and the neighbors were all very friendly. It was a great spot for doing lots of exploring of the area-Darien, St Simons, Jekyll Island, Savannah and Brunswick. But it was always nice to come back to this quiet spot on the marsh. We wouldn't hesitate coming back a second time!
Thank you Ms. Pam for the review. You went above and beyond taking care of the Cottage.
Peace on the marsh.
The house was wonderful, we enjoyed the marsh views by day and the stars by night. If you are looking for a get away removed from tourist and the hustle and bustle of life this house is perfect. If you want to jump back into the typical vacation spots you can hop in the car for a short drive to several destinations. We loved the house, the location, and the peace.
