The Stratchan Carriage House - St. Simons Island, GA

Shelter In Place Made Easy

My husband and I sheltered in place here for 7 weeks this spring much to the envy of our family and friends elsewhere. Truly it was easy. The weather was perfect to start my tan and splash in the pool. I read 7 books, tended to spring cleaning, and researched more fun historical facts about the Strachan family. The high speed internet and new Sonos audio kept my husband in synch with his work. Daily low tide beach walks were a must. Uncle Don’s Market was open for local lettuces and Florida tomatoes. St. Simons Seafood and City Market provided the freshest shrimp, mahi-mahi, flounder and sea trout. And take out from Mellow Mushroom in the village and Southern Soul BBQ worked very well when the chef (me) wanted a night off. Now restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, drug stores, small shops and bookstores are operational with smart social distancing rules. Go to ( for latest updates. Our housekeeper Susan is following the CDC and travel industry cleaning protocols.  We want you and your family to enjoy the vacation we know you need. Spring 2020
