The Wallow Lodge

Sapelo Island, Georgia, United States

A stay at this historic inn at Hog Hammock offers a chance to experience the island's distinct Geechee culture. Owner Cornelia Walker Bailey's memoir of life growing up Geechee on Sapelo, God, Dr. Buzzard, and the Bolito Man, has made her a folk hero and focused awareness on the disappearing communities of descendants of African slaves. Each room is decorated with furniture and memorabilia from residents of the island. Cotton chenille, a tradition on Sapelo, and quilted spreads cover the beds.

PROS

  • rowboat is available to guests for exploring the island's creeks
  • unique decor
  • next door to the Trough, the town's only bar

CONS

  • the lodge has a communal kitchen, so unless you make prior arrangements for meals, you must bring your own supplies from the mainland
